PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
George, if I may ask, what is the crisis you are speaking about? Yes, yes, pictures galore from you, please. I have traveled in your country but probably not in your region. Wonderful culture and people!
Hello Everyone!!! We're doing fine!!! I guess everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving!!! Jim came in from being on the road for about 1 1/2 months. He is still moving FEMA units across the country. He has been from New York to Montanna and a bunch of states in between.
Hi everyone. My son's job was transferred to Illinois, and he wanted his 'mom' to be with him. -I- wanted my grandkids, so here I am, in the middle of nowhere, with my grandkids. I am blessed. It is good to hear from all of you.
Jeri, last year was my first (ever) vegetable garden. It was awesome and very prolific. We canned and canned and canned all summer. It was great. This year wasn't so successful, too dry and hot. That's funny, isn't it? But it was, and I only got about 8 jars of green beans for the whole summer! And tomatoes, they just didn't do at all. But I am looking forward to next year, always optimistic.,
George, my family is everything to me. They are what I'm thankful for today, on the U.S. Thanksgiving Day.
“This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience,” Barack Obama said in his inaugural address which coincided with Martin Luther King Jr Day.
I back up that idea ! Happy gardening to ye'all !
Oh I wish I could get a picture! That would be awesome if it is the same jug! My mom lives in California and I live 2000 miles away in Arkansas, and she isn't technology savvy anymore and just had back surgery so getting a picture isn't going to be the quickest thing that's ever been done lol!
All that issue about the jug is certainly funny, but when I was a little child I was looking at that old cream-jug from the distant 60-es in the dining-room's cupboard and I was sort of real intreaged by it. I thought there's some mistery in it. As if that mere cream-jug kind of imbibed the misterious history behind and mayby future ahead... At that time I was certainly more absorbed by the history it might had observed behind.
Oh, please say hi to your mom. grin
Hi Al and FlowrLady! I was in Prague and to other places in Czech Republic. FlowrLady, Olympics is quite far from my place in Sochi - it's about 50 miles to get there and I usually try not to travel to that part. But I will try to get a sneak peek, when back to my southern home. However, it will probably happen not earlier than April or May.
George, that will be great! I live thousands and thousands of miles from there, so you are my "man-on-the-street" for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Just keep us up with what you know...it will be more than we can read or see on TV. That will be great!!!! Thanks my friend.
LOl. Yours aren't that big! LOl The one Russia recently had was like 20 times more powerfull than the cold war nuclear bomb. But it exploded above the relatively unpopulated area at approximately 15 000 ft altitude. They still search for the main fragments- the scientists assume the size of the biggest that reached the surface is about 20 inches in diameter. I once purchased a fragment from the Sikhote-Alin meteorite ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikhote-Alin_meteorite ) from the Moscow Geophysics institute- it's half inch and I payed about 30 bucks for it.
Here's the pic of it.
