    • The Role of Politicians in an Oligarchy…
      …is to wrangle voters for oligarchs then enact policies to make the rich, richer. This is clearly indicated by jobs for the families of politicians and the way that politicians are rewarded post-career. The Clintons had a 100 million dollars a few years after leaving the White House. Seven figure lobbying jobs are routine for […]

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.
