    Our one yellow crocus is comfortably under the snow from yesterday as are the rows of garlic that were about two inches above the mulch layer of chopped wheat straw. This lunatic woke up for the viewing and now needs a short nap. Later Thanks for your perspective and analysis ysd. Who profits, the question [...]

    The skies did clear late and I woke to see the last 5% of the moon go into the shadow of the earth. Was pretty cool to see, but I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I did some house work. My student will be off to school in a couple minutes, and I am [...]

    Unfortunately, in some respects (wish we could responsibly share the moisture, I have in-laws and a sibling/family living in CO) the heavy wet snow earlier today has us remaining under a pretty thick cloud cover. Astronomic lunar viewing will likely be out of the question.

    “…snowy linen land…” thanks cmauk.

  • Appreciate the news of the new legal team and those supporting all of us, through supporting Chelsea.

    And the real money for the medical research will materialize when male exaggeration reconstruction is the focus of the research.

    Great post, sorry I couldn’t get here earlier. Thanks.

    Woke to four inches of new snow today. About 30F this afternoon. Good thing I got about 200 square feet of the garden planted last week. Snow cover will hold the heat in the soil. ;^)

  • I had forgotten the length of time involved here for this woman to have had to endure this “trial.” Thanks for the update and the reminders.

    Thanks for the post msmolly, excellent, as usual from you. I guess I’d have to sign up for Face Book to see how much “Klout” I have. Not. Spring work is finally ready to be addressed, a month late and, now seemingly much to do, all at once. A quick light lunch, coffee and then [...]

    No links, but radio interview on progressive show spoke of $2.1 Trillion o US derived income hidden, “legally,” in offshore accounts to remain not taxed by US government, annually. Show started with Caterpillar Corp story and guests went into estimated $10s of Trillions being the real total in similar corporate, “shelters”

    Ditto with one of the raised beds, out to walk the Planet and get some seeds in before the predicted mid-morning rain. Picture four foot wide planting beds with permanent green and occasionally mowed walk-ways in between them. No mud on the shoes, no till necessary in the non compressed beds. Gentle lift of the soil [...]

    Starting at the end here wendydavis, I’m in the seaglass category of seasonal economic activity and tourism is one of the main fuels. Lots of people affected by Walker’s Act 10 cutting union bargaining, strangling public education, etc, etc, has led to many marginal families not even being able to afford half a tank of [...]

    Starting at the bottom, thanks C-S. Energy Bills, propane at over $7.00/gal up from around $1.50/gal as known late fall 2013 shortages were not addressed among regulators and distributors has not been investigated as malfeasance, price gouging or the like. Governor Walker just signed legislation to make available loans to customers to pay the price [...]

    BT, thanks for the post, brevity unfortunately can’t be assigned to the featured problem. Appreciate the updates from your informed scientific perspective. Coffee break, lots of migrating and local returning birds, highs in the 50′s and overnight lows just above 30F predicted. This is mud season, but not a lot of surface flooding so the [...]

    Nice to, “see,” you, msmolly. Being handy I’ve repaired my glasses a couple times myself. There is 30 lb test mono fishing line that holds the lenses into the metal part of the frame. Repaired that twice, over the years. I need to be extremely careful about cleaning the lenses, sandpaper, concrete, general construction dust, [...]

    There is no way that a place charging what you were quoted/paid needs to leave you without the existing frame and lenses to use for 10 days. Definitely check around. The frame style and the prescription are sent to a lab/factory, my new lenses arrive, I receive notification, go in for about a half hour, [...]

    Sorry, I should have been more specific in stating DPW, “leadership,” and not all of the Democratic party membership, but gerrymandering happened after the 2010 census and “R,” election wins, not after the 2012 results. If you live here you know the story. Are you a WI resident? My county “D,” party has no more [...]
