At around 3,000 ft, Boney Mountain is one of the highest points in the Santa Monica Mountains, which are very nice but I don't consider them real mountains.

Thanks for the pics, Kelli. Always enjoyable to go on your rambles.

I found out that rattlesnake weed was used as an aid for snake bites.

Partly Cloudy 43 F Beautiful weekend here--plenty of sun and moderate temps. I've been fighting the head cold from hell the past few days but managed to get some pruning, raking and other clean-up done.

Kelli...You're in full bloom there-- I especially like the lupines.

marsue...You are well into spring there. I have 1 crocus blooming and other things are beginning to peek out of the ground.

dyson...breaking sod with a small tiller is no easy chore. I don't envy you.

rusty...your raised beds are looking good!

Photo: I've wanted some copper topped post caps for my sitting garden but was too cheap to pay the $50 to buy them. I was at a HD a while back and they had some on clearance for only a $1 a piece. They were for 5" posts though, an odd size I've never seen around here. I adapted my 4" posts to accept them and they worked out quite well. I like the bigger size because they stand out better.

I forgot to wish everyone a HAPPY SPRING!!!

I love those e_b!
GREAT Look!
Like you I'm too cheap to pay full price...lol!

There are about a 1/2 dozen plants called either Rattlesnake Weed or Snake Weed.
All were though to help... none do... :-(
I found the one Kelli photographed (Euphorbia albomarginata)
years back when I was researching a plant we grow called
Rattlesnake Master Plant (Eryngium yuccifolium).
It too was thought to help w/ Snakebite.

Mache is pretty funny. We grow it for it's blooms.
Never could ID it.
Then someone in England finally gave us the name.
Seems here and in most areas it's cut for salad greens before it bolts.
So no one knew the flower.

Rusty that's a good looking Project!!

Pepper THANKS for keeping the snow for us!!!!

We were out in shirtsleeves again.
The rain still hadn't moved in.
Just starting to drizzle now.
It's still 60!

Our neighbor took me over to Lowe's and we picked up the subfloor and wall sheathing today.
Thought that's all we'd get done.
But the weather held up so the base is now plumbed and the sub cut.
Tomorrow looks like a rain out so we won't get the floor glued and screwed till probably Tuesday.

Lots of new blooms today.
The first is a hybrid Pulmonaria I've been nursing for a few years.
Love this bloom.
If you go counter clockwise from the red/coral bloom that's the colors it goes thru w/ each flower.

Well, the boys went home yesterday. I stayed up till 8:00 pm before going to bed, and I still slept in :o) It's a chilly 28 this morn! Looks like the mid 50's all week. I'm reading, but can't comment on all.

Mau, we haven't seen Friday for a while. He's looking dapper!

Darius, I love your winter names!

Pepper, I'm glad your nephew is OK!! Glad your Dad won't flood for now.

Ric, you have a great looking Dad! I agree, he does not look his age!

Rusty, you really got hit with the snow!

Celia, love the hawk! They have made a come back around here.

Pepper, we did not get you or Rusty's snow. Our layer melted already. You have my pity.

Kiska, you've come into Spring and Frank looks great! Love the snow dog trying to climb on the porch ;o) Ahhhh, moose :o)

Kelly and everyone, love the new blooms! I still only have crocus.

Early, how lucky to get the copper caps at that price!! I love copper roof on the bird house I have.

Kiska, oops, you and Frank still have a ways to go till Spring :o(

Dyson, I hope you got the garden tilled up before the rain. Hope you aren't overdoing anything!

Where is Sharon? I hope all is well with her.

I had to laugh at myself. I told the Grandkids to come wash their hands and one of them hollered back, Wait! I shot back with Weight broke the wagon. I didn't get it when I was a kid either, but Mom used to say it.

Yeah, they look innocent :o)

Well the front moved thru last night and dropped some serious rain for a time.
No violent weather, though I did hear a rumble or two.
Just gray here today so far.
Looks like low mid 60's today. Sunny and the same tomorrow.
After a VERY Cool Jan/Feb we are now running 10 higher than average.

Ric, I had no idea what pictures I had till I unloaded the camera. Cracked me up! Anyone who wants to use the picture for captions, may. Aahhh, rock cress. I see that now. It's such a pure white!

Yay, Sunshine for Dyson! It's a good day!!

Celia, they are absolutely adorable! Beautiful little Daffodil peeking out of the grass! I saw a short bud on mine today!

Chrissy, if we told you, you wouldn't believe it, LOL! What a great way to get and spend your days off!

I'm going out later and rake up more walnut sticks. I'm trying real hard NOT to clean off any beds, but I want to!! It's 52 sunny, but windy.

Ric, thanks for the info about muscari. I also found something interesting about their bulbs which are looking so much like garlick. They say the Greeks are eating them. Love your blooms. The alpine rock cress seems so much like aubrieta, only it's white.

Hi Everyone:
Weatherwise: it was a dreary, cloudy day in the low 40's with a raw feeling to it.
Now: 41 F, 63% humidity and light rain, no wind.
Rain forecast through tomorrow night. It is needed.

Love to see pics of the goats and other "kids" and the project with the copper caps - they look great.

Kiska: I was going to ask if you still have snow, but I know the answer. When can you plant outside? How long a growing season do you have? How much daylight are you gaining each day. Right now we increase by just over 3 minutes a day.

picture is a dreary day on the beach.

Well the Weather Liars really blew this forecast.
Supposed to be 62 we barely broke the mid 40's.

That IS a cold dreary beach shot!
Beautiful though!!

Hit Lowe's and HD today.
More wood, a new ceiling fan for the Kitchen and new lights.
The LED under counter puck lights are in.

Mostly cloudy; 34*F;
Isolated snow showers in the evening. Lows in the lower to mid 20s.
Wind 10 to 20 mph.
Sunrise was 7:50 w/Sunset at 8:17 this evening.
Gain of 5m 51seconds today.
adina~that purple blossom is gorgeous. Glad to see there's an end to the winter you've had.
legergardener~I love the look of the misty ocean view. "Official" planting day is Memorial Day in May; except for root veggies, nearly everything planted has been started indoors weeks earlier. Carrots and radishes, in the soil, from seed, do have time to grow to maturity. The season is short, intense and with 24 hour light, grow non-stop. Mid-late August ends the growing season, but harvesting pototoes, carrots goes till early Sept. Cool weather crops are grown here. Normal summer temp is mid-60's w/cool rain frequently.
This link has info about the veggies. Paragraph four features our friend, Scott Robb. (Giant veggie grower)>

58 and sunny! I had a long walk this morn, hung out a load of clothes and wished I had another.

Rusty, you have a water garden for a day or two! Wow!

Thanks Kiska, I don't know where the saying came from, but it's fun to say :o) The lilacs are casting nice shadows!

Thanks Adina, The purple cress is pretty too! A real grape color. Nice rocks coralling it!

Ledgegardener, that's the fog and grey you would expect to see. Now if we could see the lighthouse!

Ric, that's a disapointing weather lie!

Rusty, LOL!! I think her sister and all the flying monkeys melted too!

Kiska, great picture of the lake! I love the mountains in the fog, or clouds. Really neat! Oh, you live over there! LOL!

Marsue, I forgot just how handsome Friday is! Great pictures! What a day you are going to have!

Celia, nice color in the clouds and a pretty blue sky!

Kiska, I love how you gain minutes in a day! Leggos came out for us too! He's got a great arena with fighting men!

Chrissy, my time will come! Gorgeous weather for you! Ohhh, how dainty and beautiful!

I'm slowly going to bed later, to try and get into Spring mode. I miss waking up earlier than 6:00 am, but I will be out later each nice day we get. Can't burn the candle at both ends anymore. Boy do I miss those days!!

Cindylove, we're a great little group with a little bit of everybody :o) The road plantings sound wonderful! We're seeing it along our highways a lot more around here.

Kiska, I think we all cheer when you finally get Spring too :o)

I raked two beds that can handle the cold. I'm seeing baby columbines and baby daylilies and baby tulips. I even found a toad who just dug himself out. I set him on a rock so he could warm up a little. It was a great day.

It's still 60 and light out at almost 7:00 pm

Very warm and sunny for the last 2 days. Today we almost hit 70. I wanted to work in the garden but didn't get a chance to do anything. Hopefully tomorrow.

Last night the Missouri Mavericks, our area hockey team played their first game in the playoffs and won. It was a great game despite the bad calls and kicking the best player out of the game. The opponents, Mississppi Riverkings were not happy with us and made sure we knew it thru out the game. Tensions were bad enough that the teams had to use separate entrances when leaving the arena so they wouldn't get into a brawl. The Mavs are down in Mississppi today and tomorrow and if they win they will be in the semi finals. Not bad for a first year team huh? LOL

Oh, greenhouse goes up Friday if weather holds. Whoo hoo!!

Chrissy Lovely!

Well after a cold start we did hit 60 today.
Toasty sun and the wood is about dried out.
Partly cloudy and 63 tomorrow.
We should get the Shed sub floor glued and screwed.
Probably get to the new Kitchen fan tomorrow too.

Afraid to pull out the framing lumber as it looks like rain Thurs/Friday.
Got the new Kitchen light in.
Took a while I had to do some rewiring work.

Lined up a friend to do the Panel wiring.
He's certified! I'll trade him EE's for the time.

Ric, at least that wiring is done! I love barter and trade. It makes everyone happy.

Crissy, I'm kicking myself for not getting a picture of the toad yesterday. Like the robin, he was the first! On the first day of Spring, I start making my days count. Even if it's just to realize where we are in the month.

Ric, friends are the best!

Celia, giggle! Neat contrast of mountains! Maybe one is a molehill :o)

Sunfarm, pat pat.

It's 45! I wasn't expecting that. If you don't watch the weather you hear no lies. I just figure it out daily now. The map shows light green over us. I'm sitting here with the outdoor light on to see those first raindrops that...look like they're going to slide under us. OK, light out.

I'm going to look for that toad today!

Oh yeah, I had to call for jury duty last night. No trial!!

Hello Everyone
Storm here yesterday and last night, No internet d/t precipitation between my roof and satellite, power was on/off too... strong winds last night off the ocean - sounds like a jet engine.

Kiska does this forecast look familiar? It is winter here today. Gaining 3 minutes and 6 or 7 seconds a day. Your growing season is some shorter than mine, but I start everything in side as seeds and grow them under lights, except for root crops and peas and pole beans. I use row covers to extend the season too.

Hi Everyone:

Thanks for the nice word on the last picture. The "mountain" that is in the distance, mid picture on right (next to the trees) is Cadillac Mountain in the heart of Acadia National Park. It is the highest point of the east coast of the Americas until you get down to Rio de Janeiro and its Corcovado Mountain.

Pepper - hope the truck is not expensive to fix.
Billyporter - yes the storms can be impressive. It is the wind that comes off the ocean, usually when a "nor'easter" comes up the coast. 60 mph winds are not uncommon and sometimes hurricane force winds. The forest is remarkable protection - and as the wind goes over the tops it sounds like a jet engine. I am about 100 feet back from the water, it is wooded but when the leaves are off I can see the water sparkling. I have access to the shore, but that really doesn't matter because except in high summer I am the only person here.

kwanjin - baby clothes?

I'm too far behind to comment on everything! I've been spending a lot of time out in the yard this week, except for today--it was too windy and about 15 degrees colder today than yesterday. Plus my ISP has been down several times this week. Suddenlink is working on the problem but hasn't totally "fixed" it yet. The workman came to the door today and told us that they would be working on it between midnight and 5 a.m. tonight. The reason they had to let us know is because the pole is in my side yard and their trucks will be in my driveway tonight. It won't bother me just as long as they don't wake me up! Sometimes when they are working on the line, they will leave their trucks running which is okay in the daytime but not in the wee hours of the morning!

As I said, it was windy and colder today and we had rain very early and again later this afternoon. The high today was in the high 50's but it felt colder because of the sustained winds which were anywhere between 15 and 21 mph. Tomorrow will be a nicer day--warmer and sunny and hopefully, not windy!
You all have a nice evening--or what's left of it!

Celia!!! SO adorable!!

Ledgegardener, it sounds like you have the best of three worlds. Woods, water, and privacy :o) Well, and view! I'm not sure how long I would like the wind. A beautiful serene picture! Does the water ever warm up?

Marsue, I'm giggling. I too don't stay out because it's windy and chilly. Chilly, not cold, but it's still not warm enough for me! We are a few blocks from uptown. Someone was leaving their semi parked and running. I could hear it all night. I can imagine what it would sound like to you.

Country, Good Friday jumps around too much for me to plant that early. My garden is not ready, nor do I have any taters :o(

Ric, I have windows 7 and like it. Of course it's the only new program I know, so what's not to like? LOL!

Adina, I love the grape color and now I can see it's fuzzy little leaves. Very pretty! I love pansies and they'll look so nice with the tulips! I love all the close-up's! For having all that snow you sure have more green to show for it than I would have expected! Spring is so exciting!!

Though freezing precip was reported just north and west of us, we lucked out with temp only going to 33 this morning. I hope that was the last of winter, but can't forget the snowstorm 3 years ago on Easter weekend that nearly killed my Japanese maple and left my daffodils a mess. It could still happen. We have had 1.5X as much snow as last year, which was more than enough. This part of Kentucky is not the "Sunny South."

BP: if I had a wolfman and it was keeping me awake, it would be "bye-bye wolfman"! LOL
Ledge: Celia's (kwanjin) daughter is expecting a baby girl--that's why the baby clothes. Celia has gone into "grandma mode" and so has Adina--her daughter is expecting a boy!

Sunfarm: poor frozen daffodils--that is definitely not the "sunny south"!

Rain is over for now--sun is shining this morning--temps up in the 70's, supposedly (later this afternoon). It should be a good day for more clean-up in the gardens. Wind isn't blowing either, which makes it even nicer!

Well the move to Windows 7 appears to have gone well.
I was just moving from Vista so I didn't have to do much prep.
Loved Vista but it's a RAM Hog.
7 is much faster. I got it cheap in a bundle.
If you have Xp it's WELL worth the upgrade.
Vista upgrade is worth it if you get 7 cheap.

Dyson bad news! Hope it didn't ruin anything.

Lovely Adina!

Well we had a skiff of snow and 29 temps this morning.

Mau, sorry they didn't fix your cable yet...grrr! Thanks for reading my article and for explaining about me becoming a grandma!
My DD was yesterday at the doctor's and he told her she shouldn't eat anymore because she is too fat already..."just eat an apple when you're hungry"he said...she might get in a coma when giving birth...she might need a surgery when the baby comes... the baby wasn't well turned at 7 months pregnancy etc etc. She was scared to death, poor girl! Lucky I reassured her and with her brother being there with her, she was happy again! Ionut(DS) calls her "the whale"!LOL
Jackie, great pics of the mountain! Frank looks great!
Ric, I had to get Firefox as my browser too when I wrote the article. Not such a great fun of changes, but if this is what I need , works for me! I hope windows 7 is good for you. Is that the next program after Vista? I'm so behind all these!
Sally, sorry you can't sleep well! It's cold out there! Stay warm. Love that sunrise, you are so funny! Do you have an airport nearby?
Ledge, great pics! Love the color of the ocean...wow, my favorite color, I could watch it forever!

Bernie, Amen! We have 47 sun and a breeze. Just right for picking up and stacking logs.

Dyson, just thank him for waiving his fee so you can get well :o) And you better get well!

Celia, Grandma mode is wonderful! So are the beautiful blooms. I can't wait either!

Adina, those are adorable too!! Your poor daughter. I imagine that did scare her. All we ever want is delivery to go well. Prayers for her and the little guy. It's a very good thing to have her brother there! Yes, there is an airport in the next big town of Iowa City, and a smaller one in Muscatine. I figure these trails are people flying long distances or coming home from being snowbirds since our airports aren't big places. I hope you get to hand her the baby clothes when the baby is born.

Dad came up to cut more wood from the trees the electric company cut out of the lines. We got another almost full truck load. I sweated!

We are FINALLY getting better weather here in North Texas... SUNNYYYYYYYY with temps closing in on the 70's!! WOOO HOO.. going to go out in a little bit to plant some plants I bought earlier today!
I have put out my seedlings to "harden" them off... as our nights may be too cool for them. The seedlings are so lanky & some are tall that I hope I get something from them.

Quoting:We call those "crosses" sewing...how do you call it?


In general, stuff like that is called needlework. That specific thing is called plastic canvas because the backing or framework is like a thick, plastic screen.

Adina, I have a question for you. I have read or heard that the real Vlad Dracula is a hero in Romania. Is the idea of the vampire Dracula offensive to Romanians?

chaparral currant - I've been telling you that the fruits are not edible, that is, not palatable, so I thought I better give them a try. Yep, not palatable, but astringent and tasteless. It look like the coyotes will eat them, though.

Cindylove, are you putting out garden plants or flowers?

Kelli, is that what is cross-stitch? Maybe that's similar to Adina's description.
I thought the deerweed was ok and then it popped! Very pretty! I love the tiny flowers of spring and the blues you have.
LOL! Reminds me if the first time I finally tasted a crabapple when I was a kid. There were two trees I passed under on the way to school. Spit it out!

Pepper, smiling over Mac the Maverick :o) Go Team!!

Celia, your hail looks like our sleet. I'm glad it didn't knock any buds off!

It's 37 and breezy out of the Southeast. It looks like we will see clouds with a high of 51 and a few gusts of wind up to 25 mph. Typical. Altho we haven't had the kite flying weather yet. DH used to fly a kit on his birthday when he was a kid. That was Thursday the 25th.

Good morning all! I am enjoying everyone's posts, I missed being on line last night. Had a netflix movie to watch, "A Bridge Too Far". It was good.

Marsue - hope the ISP gets fixed! I am glad to hear of all the little gardeners on the way. The only sounds here at night are the wind, coyotes, gulls (active now because of a worm hatch) and when warm enough - the peepers!
billyporter - the water is always cold - never gets out of the lower 60's even in August! Only the hardiest of souls go in the water here and then it is just a dash in and out. In the winter if people fall off a boat - survival time is just a few minutes. The nearest year round neighbor is a lobstrman and he says the survival suits they wear are just so the coast guard can find the body.
adinati - love the flower pictures, and I hope everything goes well with the birth.
dyson - hope nothing got damaged in the shed and the roof is easy to fix.

The weather here since yesterday has been January-like with strong winds and and sub zero wind chills. It snowed yesterday a.m. and it has not melted in the shady spots. Down to the teens this morning and slowly creeping up.

Good morning! Hope you are all having a good day where ever you live in the world!
Adina: that is a shame about your DD's doctor scaring her like that! He should be forthright about possible dangers involved in her pregnancy but it sounds like he scared her silly! Cute baby clothes!
Celia and Adina: Buying for the grandkids is such fun when they are little. Once they get to be pre-teens and teens, you can forget it. They just want you to give them the money so they can go buy it themselves! Teens are very "picky" (translate that to mean: extremely particular) about their clothes and almost everything else, too! Enjoy them while they are little--LOL
Kelli: the macro photo is amazing! Good photo of the lupine and the cranefly, too.
Pepper: Go Mavericks! :o))
Dyson: sometime doctors will discount their bills by a certain percentage if you call and talk to whoever handles the billing in their office. My cardiac surgeon discounted his bill by 70% after I had open heart surgery in 2003. (I wasn't on Social Security at that point in time but we didn't have any health insurance because we cancelled it in January, 2003, when they went up to $800.00 per month!) In fact, all but one of the doctors(I had several) discounted their bills after I called and talked to them about it. It never hurts to ask, especially if you are on a limited income such as Social Security.
Ledge: the ISP appears to be "fixed" now. (Side note to Adina and Rann: "fix" in the south can mean several things: "to repair" as in "I fixed the tv"; "getting ready to" as in: "I'm fixing to go to the grocery store"; "preparing" as in "I'm fixing supper". Those of us who live in the southern U.S. have our own way of speaking--LOL)

I spent most of yesterday outside in the flower beds. Trying to finish up the spring weeding and clean up. I discovered several plants were blooming that had not been blooming the day before such as the anemone and the lorapetulum.
I'm going to try to spend more time outside today. Getting ready to go outside as soon as I finish posting here, if it isn't too windy, that is.

# Today: A mix of clouds and sun with gusty winds. High 71F. Winds SSE at 15 to 25 mph.
# Tonight: Scattered thunderstorms early, mainly cloudy late with a few showers. A few storms may be severe. Low 49F. Winds SW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 60%.

Here's the anemone.

Speaking of "fixes", sometimes we get "in a fix" when we have problems, and my veterinarian/daughter "fixes" many of her patients with spay/neuter surgeries. I had not thought much about these multiple meanings until you brought up the term.

Sunfarm: it's hard to believe that it is still so cold in Kentucky as I don't think of it being that far north but I suppose, since it sits north of TN, that it only follows that you would not yet be as warm as we are down here in my neck of the woods. I just hope I'm not pushing things too quickly as we can sometimes get a frost or even a hard freeze in late April. That happened 3 yrs. ago and many of the plants and trees were adversely affected because we had a warm spring up until then. It took everything a while to bounce back.
You mentioned a couple more uses for "fix" that I had not thought of. I guess we just take our slang terms for granted until we have to explain them to somebody who doesn't know what we are talking about! LOL

I spent a about an hour outside earlier but it was really too windy for me. I don't like being outside in the wind even if it is a warm wind. I did get 4 offshoots from my Red Dragon Persicaria potted up for our RU plus I pulled a bucket full of weeds but that is about all I was able to do. I suppose March is going out like a lion instead of a lamb!

Sunfarm, you might have to explain more to me about brackets. I might have missed some things when you first came to weather and I was gone waiting for a new computer.

Ledge, on a warm evening you can hear the worms eating here. It sounds like a light rain patter :o) I had a feeling the water never warmed up. That's pretty sad thinking about having to locate someone who went overboard. When I break and throw the ice out of the birdbaths, I can't help but feel so bad for anyone who falls into icy water.

Marsue, don't forget your kite! Beautiful anemone!

Sunfarm and Mau, another confusing word is ''up.'' We use it for everything.

Celia, snicker. Fix me a sandwich :o) Yeah! First ride! DH has been waiting to get unger the Galaxxie. He's got the jeep running.

Yawn, I stayed up late trying to trace phone calls on the caller ID. I had one ''free'' program that gave me latitude and longitude. I went from there. Fundraisers.

It stayed 37 all night. Maybe we're in for a good Sunday.

No rides for us yet. The gravel roads are in bad shape. The water table is high and has ''boiled'' holes in the roads. The gravels have turned to dirt, and sandy slog thru conditions, in other spots. And the state doesn't have much money for rock this year. Ironically, there is a gravel company a half hour from here.

This morning's low was 49, double yesterday's, with a high of 68. Heard thunder a couple of hours ago, but nothing in the raingauge. Yes, this is Kentucky in the spring.
I'd hate to have to learn English as a second language--too many confusing meanings of a single word and too many confusing pronunciations of words spelled similarly.

42 now after a low of 41 overnight. Quite a difference from our low of 18 Fri. night. It's cloudy and we are expecting rain today.

Sunfarm...I have brothers in Lexington, Kentucky and I'm sure they were not too happy last evening either.

billy...The gravel roads around here are in bad shape too. The paved roads took a pretty good beating as well...

Kelli...Love the Deerweed. It looks like a garland.

I spent Friday photographing old abandoned homes etc. Found some cool things--there were around 20 cars parked behind one old tumbledown house.

Hello Fellow Gardeners!

The big news on the coast of Maine today is that sometime Friday night/ Saturday morning the robins arrived in large numbers. Went into Ellsworth yesterday to finish errands (the things I forgot to do and groceries I forgot to get on Wednesday) and there were robing in groups of 20 to 30 or so looking over peoples lawns for something to eat. Unfortunately the "peepers" remain under ice.

Sunfarm - I didn't realize it was still that cold in Kentucky. Guess no hummingbirds there yet. I am anxious for their arrival, but they usually don't get here until the third week of May.

Mau - I read the article on the front page of DG this a.m. about the abbreviations used - that made me chuckle and the thoughts on all the way "fix" is used made me think too. It must be hard for people learning English as a second language. I wonder if other languages do the same.

BP - are you "pulling my leg" about hearing the worms eat? Our secondary paved roads are still "posted" prohibiting heavily loaded vehicles like oil delivery trucks.

Kwanjin - we have wind chills here still - no open air riding here until it warms up.

Price of iron would go down if all the old cars were recycled. Lots around here too.

Sunshine today. Starting to warm up. In the 70's by mid week.
This is only the 3rd March we have had with no snow. The other 2 were 1853 & 1870 something.
Will be a very early spring here. Tulips in open areas are already 6" tall. Grass is greening up.

Going to another home & garden show this afternoon to snoop around a little.
Never know what might be there.

We will be building a sun room for a neighbor this summer. I put a high labor price on it & he was fine with that. I think we have been working to cheap!

Hi guys! Thanks for the American English lesson! In fact, "talking" to you everyday is a lesson to me and I'm so grateful for this!
Kelli, the Romanians are offended by the confusion created by presenting Vlad Dracul as being the character Dracula , and not by the Dracula myth itself. His name actually inspired the character's name to Bram Stoker.
Vlad Dracul's son, Vlad Tepes(the Impaler) was the one who was a hero for the Romanian people , back in the 15th century, as you said you knew. He used to punish the wealthy people who were stealing from the poor . The poor peasants had no land of their own and even if they had, some of the wealthy people would stole their land and make them work for them like slaves, only for some products of the land they were working on. Vlad Tepes punished them through a very cruel method, by running a huge stake through their body. The romanian word for stake is "teapa", thus the name of "Tepes" - the one who impaled the stakes, the Impaler.
About the name Vlad Dracul..."Drac" is the Romanian word for the evil, but this time they were using it for illustrating a rank which was given to Vlad when he was admitted into the Order of the Dragons - a society of the Serbian nobles.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_II_Dracul

Vlad Tepes was called by his people "Draculea" meaning the Dracul's son . I can see the confusion is also made by our people in these explanation by writing the name Dracula next to Vlad Tepes' name...although they are also explaining the confusion in the text nearby.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_III_the_Impaler

So you see that neither Vlad Tepes, nor his father, Vlad Dracul were Dracula. Romanians are very religious people and even the thought that such a monster might have been living in our country is scary.
But for me personally, this myth is cool and might bring some money for us, if we had someone so smart to take advantage of it. It was a minister of tourism who wanted to make a Dracula Land, something like an entertainement park, but the project was too expensive and was abandoned.

"You might be a redneck if you have an old car without wheels sitting up on concrete blocks in your front yard." You can google 'you might be a redneck if' and come up with all sorts of jokes (some are a bit risque).

Ledge: Congrats on the arrival of the robins! I've never heard of "hearing the worms eat" but we do use the term "listening to the grass grow" (used when one is extremely bored--or extremely relaxed like Celia's Monty). I love the directions you received about the car with the firewood stored in it! LOL
Bernie: enjoy the home and garden show. Congrats on getting the sun room job!
Adina: that is a very interesting history lesson about the two Vlads!

Aawww Mau, I love to see kids put up kites. When we were kids we flew them in our pasture across the road. Once Dad had about a mile of string and let the kite go way high! He tied it to the fence since the wind was so strong and left it up all day. When DD was little we still went down there to put up the kite. We have wires and trees here too :o(

How about up-side-down. Look up, as in the dictionary, or skyward. Very confusing. I really don't know how people learn our language so well!

Early, join me and Pepper in the bad roads. We have a lot of broken highways too. Love the cars and love taking pictures of abandoned places! It looks like a 41 Chevy and a 55 Buick. (DH told me, I don't know cars :o)

Sunfarm, old cars are everywhere. It depends on whether you can get close to them or not. I make them sound like a wild animal, LOL

Ledge, I'd like to see a bunch of robins land at the same time! Our's trickle in, a few at a time. I saw one get a nice 4'' dewworm and eat the whole thing. If it had hatchlings it would have cut the worm into pieces. Nice tomato starts!

No joke, you can hear the worms pull the leaves and fall debris toward their holes in the spring. As they eat, they just keep pulling it closer. Get a yardful of them and it sounds like a soft rain. Pretty cool! Love the directions to their place! That's the world I love. Simple!

Country, it's a wonder more people aren't hauling iron to the scrap yards while the prices are decent. The hood ornament is worth the money! Remember, don't crush them restore them. I'm glad you are able to charge what you are worth.

Adina, I'm glad Kelly asked the question. People find it easier to believe an easy explanation and pretty soon it becomes truth, much like worthless gossip. That is interesting that he was more like Robin Hood. I'm not keen on any painful death myself and can't watch TV shows when it happens. I can imagine the Entertainment Park! It would have been fun!

Mau, here we listen to the corn grow. Not exactly a myth. I think it was the field corn, before things went hybrid.

The wind is really gusting off and on. I love listening to it, from inside the house :o)

I open it briefly to feel the air when I get up, and the cats sit there with their nose twitching. They can't wait to sit on the sideporch when the plastic is off it too. Right now it gets over 70 out there and we can leave the house door leading to it, open.

Bernie: they sure don't make hood ornaments like they used to!
Awww, Celia, cute "love" birds! They all get "twitterpated" in the spring time! LOL
Sally; nice photo! As I said, I don't open my windows this time of year--waaaaay too much yellow oak pollen in the air. All my furniture would be covered and the sneezing would be non-stop! Do you think you could get a recording of the worms and play it for us? LOL

Look at the forecast for this week: 80F by Wed! Too warm for this time of year!
# Today: Sunny. High 66F. Winds NNW at 5 to 10 mph.
# Tonight: Generally clear. Low near 40F. Winds light and variable.
* Tomorrow: A mainly sunny sky. High 74F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph.
* Tomorrow night: A mostly clear sky. Low around 50F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph.
* Wednesday: More sun than clouds. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 50s.
* Thursday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid 50s.
* Friday: Mostly Cloudy. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s.

The tree pollen count is HIGH.

Thanks, BP. The kid had his mouth open when we can around the corner, then snapped it shut. It was funny as heck! LOL

We planted a new arborvitae yesterday.

Like they say, if you can afford the car, you don't worry about insurance.

Nice out today except for the wind. South wind brings warm air but you have trouble standing up.

Crissy, the insurance is not as much as you would think. Quite low, actually.

A lot depends on your age and record.
I personally like a car that's a bit more nimble.
Love the 'vettes for looks but much prefer driving a Spider or MG Midget.
Had a Midget and had a Blast in road ralley's...

Here the license plates for collector cars are cheap, but your are limited on mileage. They don't want you driving them to work everyday.
My dream is a 30's car made into a hot rod. I will dream forever!
