Good day to you all. We had some wind and rain last night--the remnants of what hit Oklahoma. A couple of my plants got pounded but the rest came through nicely. We have been grateful for a number of years that the worst weather has gone around us or has not hit us hard. The weather people predict cooler temperatures with possible thundershowers for most of the rest of the week. We can handle that. All I really have to do in the gardens now is cultivate and fill in the open spots sometime later this week. I know I have said before that the containers take little in the way of cultivation to control weeds. That was before we put up that bird feeder. Those little beasts are very messy eaters and have scattered a good bit of seed. I switched to a new kind of feed that should help that problem--it is hulled and the plants are not supposed to sprout. We'll see.
This is interesting. The article mention that the Brits picked up the idea from the U.S. I hadn't heard about it but a quick Google search turned up quite a few hits. I didn't go into them
This can't be good. China's food industry has had all too many scandals of late. But then I don't have all that much trust in our own.
If I lived in Oklahoma, especially anywhere near Moore, I would work very hard to retire Senator Tom Coburn. Maybe he thinks he is demonstrating courage and consistency but I think he really demonstrates again, as if it needed another demonstration, that the term "compassionate conservative" is an oxymoron.
