Good Saturday to you all.  Sunny right now. Temps are supposed to go into the mid to high 40s--maybe even touch but with some high winds to go with it.  However, the next two days will be really frigid--maybe even sub 0F for the first time in about a year.  But at least we have good weather for the home and garden show today.  I might find something interesting to mention when we get back.  I opened the snail mail box yesterday to find the seeds from Baker Creek.  They are always very quick.  And my e-mail box had a message from Burpee saying they had shipped that order.  Oh, yeah, pre-gardening season is in full swing.  So far all of the outside plants (blueberries, roses, tansy, pyrethrum, sage, oregano, lavender, marjoram, and thyme) are all alive and well.  Of the inside plants I have for of the six left--bay, rosemary, lemon verbena.  The oregano and patchouli didn't make it.

Although I am not in favor of most of the crap proposals I have seen on 'gun control,' these are the kinds of assholes who definitely should not own, fire, or be in the same room with a gun.  Guns aren't what we need to control.  Our problem as a society is that we do not demand nearly enough 'self control' from people.

Rain Treaux provides very good comments on the issue from someone who appears self-controlled and responsible and who uses guns as intended--as tools to accomplish and necessary end.
