Welcome Spring and Happy Equinox to all.  The shadow of the house is receding and the sun actually lit up the top couple of inches of the fence reflecting a bit of light onto the patio all day. That is my sign to start getting serious about outdoor gardening. If we have a couple of warm days this week I will start getting things cleaned up, dug up, filled up, and moved around. I started sunflowers, orach, mizuna, and tong ho yesterday. I just changed out the door wreaths putting the spring wreath up and hanging the winter wreath in the closet until next year.

We had an odd winter: warmer than normal with a lot less snow. Evidently we aren't alone.

This is a fascinating crime story. I found one story by way of Naked Capitalism which raised some questions because the numbers didn't seem to add up. The story I linked to clears up the discrepancy. Cyber criminals tried to steal nearly $1billion from the Bangladesh central bank of which $81million is still missing in the Philippines. Transfers of the rest were stopped by the U.S. Federal Reserve and by a bank in Sri Lanka. Computers do make a lot of things easier and faster--including spectacular crime.
