Happy Cinco de Mayo and I hope you all are having a good Sunday. Ours has started off sunny with temperatures predicted to be in the low 70s. I have some more gardening planned for today. The tomatoes I transplanted on Friday are all doing well. I took the caps off during the day yesterday but they go back for overnight. I have several starts upstairs that I have to put into larger pots and get into the greenhouse.
I did nothing but sit around and play on my computer yesterday. And as you can see I didn't see much to comment on either. Let's see if today is any different.
Most of what I have to say about this story is thoroughly unprintable. Unfortunately, that kind of over-the-top reaction by authorities has become all too common in our (former) 'land of the free.'
I heard this on the nightly news yesterday in a very brief announcement. After 40 years it is about time the FDA asks if triclosan is safe and effective. We began to eliminate what products contain it a couple of years ago when we first heard it might be harmful. We have long had our suspicions about the necessity of anti-bacterial everything and thought plain old fashioned soap (without antibacterial agents) and water was good enough.
