I agree. I've been participating in newsgroups since '98. I was on
Compuserve before that. The explosion of blog culture seems to have
killed the interactive board world and many of my favorite groups have
been taken over by people with severe mental problems who are no longer
drowned out by saner voices. <sigh> This group still seems to have some
life in it. . .
We aren't going to get anywhere until we realize that both parties are
run by a bunch of weasels. We need to know that the Democratic Party,
the Republican Party, the U.N., the W.T.O., the World Bank, the I.M.F.
are front groups for world fascism (International Corporations). Most of
us just want to raise our kids and mow our lawn and reap the benefits of
our work, health care and retirement. But Bush and his eternal war
against those who resist American hegemony and, the secret wars in
Unganda, Somalia and, Columbia take our profits, our young and, our
dreams and beats them into weapons.
Whether you can throw your wooden shoes in to the machine or not, you
must recognize that "Cristal Nacht" is here again.
F.B., Down with war.
F. B. and all that.
Finally the temps are moving up out of the 70s and we should be into the
mid 80's here in the Bay area by tomorrow. All but the largest tomatoes
and peppers have shut down any growth. Hoping that a heat spell will
kick these suckers back into action. Weather guesser says we will break
90 F in 9 days. Hope s/he is right.
Honey bees are doing fine here so far. A couple dozen were working the
violets yesterday. I think I may have identified my unknown herb that
looks like tarragon as skullcap. I still have some kind of mint with
pink stalks and some pink leaves but I think Jan may have headed me in
the right direction when, referring to another poster's problem, that
lack of phosphorous can cause this pinking effect. So the mint is
probably catnip, although it is not very minty tasting. On the other
hand I have 3 pots of them, what could I have been thinking? That just
leaves unknown 2, which from the pictures kinda looks like tarragon
(skullcap) with a severe phosphorous deficiency. Think I'll add some
bone meal and see what happens. Today is transplanting day for lemon
balm, elecampane, goldenrod, lettuce, and alyssum. Discovered my schafer
hund licking the ravaged cucumbers yesterday morning. Today, I'll wrap
chicken wire around its' trellis before they disappear, like one of my
zukes. First she takes up avocados and now cucumbers. Never had a dog so
taken by salads.
Have as good a day as you can.
