    • She’s more afraid of Hillary
      In an interview a few weeks ago with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, actress and activist Susan Sarandon ruffled more than a few feathers by asserting that “some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately, if he gets in. Then things will really, you know, explode.” Sarandon said later that the ensuing media frenzy […]

    • Cries for Sanders to Be Conciliatory Miss the Point
      So, Sanders has most likely lost. Last minute upsets are possible, but highly unlikely. And now come the calls for Bernie to be conciliatory. This misses the point. Sanders doesn’t need anything Clinton can give. Any promises she makes with respect to his priorities are not credible. He’s old and his career is all but […]

Something to do with an axe

Taking a break

Don’t ask.

In vain I struggled with the mighty root in my front planting bed.  There is a special level of Hell reserved for the landscaper who planted creeping juniper 15 years ago.

The good thing is I didn’t throw my back out.  The bad thing is, the damn root is still there and it must come out before I plant the hydrangeas and rhododendrons.  Back to the trenches tomorrow.

I am not amused.

So, what did you do today?

  1. “Careful with that axe, Eugene…” 😈

  2. Since “today” is now yesterday, what I did aside from recovering from a cold was . . . water my little back and side yard garden beds a lot to keep the plants surviving in this drought. Of all my hobby heirloom-breed cornplants, several are tasseling, and One of those is setting an ear. If only one cornplant ears out this year, that would be the one cornplant which could pass through this years Climatic Darwinian Filter and its seed-progeny may be a little more adapted to the future drought-heat years to come.

  3. Are the hydrangeas and rhododendrons going in to make the unit more sellable at a better price? If not, then why . . .?

  4. I cut out three creeping junipers this summer. I cut the branches and roots with a high-leverage pruner and dug, cut and dug, cut and dug…. it took me a couple of days.

  5. Get a Sawzall. They are easy to handle, the blades will handle the dirt, and you will find other uses for them.
