The sky is overcast this morning. I hope it stays dry enough to harvest some more of the herbs that are growing like the weeds they originally were (and, in some cases, still are). I have six trays of peppermint to grind. Otherwise, we'll see what the weather does.
Charles Hugh Smith had a good piece about the "content free" news we are all subjected to nowadays. Mom used to joke (with more than a bit of sarcasm) that once we had seen the latest fire, vehicle crash, shooting, robbery and political fracas--none of which mattered a damn to us because we weren't any where near most of the incidents and the politics didn't concern matters in our area--we could turn off the TV. We have remarked frequently that we get more from reading news sources on line than we do from the TV and both are really long on the emotion and short on facts. It is little wonder we don't watch much any more.
