Joan, I don't think my soil is any drier or wetter than average. I never have to water my asparagus, however.

Carl, I appreciate the transformation of exercise into bacon. That works for me. 

Randy, do you have your asparagus in a moist soil? I will give it a try in the glacial sands of my new garden. We are limited for water according to how much water the well will supply.

Oh, man.....grilled asparagus.  That's the best!  [ drooling ]

Comment by Randall Smith on August 3, 2015 at 7:19am
Grilled last night: chicken parts, sweet corn, and asparagus. Yum. It's the last of the asparagus. I quit picking it on the first of August. Been eating it since April! It lasts longer, season wise, than any other fresh garden vegetable.

Speaking of clothes and about this?

Comment by Randall Smith on July 31, 2015 at 8:28am

Super good news, Spud. Time to hit the thrift shops for "new" clothes, eh?!

Joan, I agree.

As to the government's austerity trends, this is the time to become politically active if there ever was a time. Find people with common complaints, form coalitions, write Talking Points Papers, develop strategies, talk to your state and federal representatives. If you talk to them often enough, they will begin to know your name when they see you.

Remember, we do not live in a democratic form of government, it is a republic form. 

"republic (from Latin: res publica) is a form of government or country in which power resides in elected individuals representing the citizen body and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law."

Also remember the SCOTUS ruled a corporation is a person and money is speech. 

Always have available for them a Position Paper with your name and contact information on it. Define the problem in precise, concrete, descriptive terms. State what you want them to do.  

You will be surprised how people will come out of the woodwork when reality hits them and they realize they need to have a voice in the legislature. The People don't have the money to influence representatives in government, and the People do have a voice that can be delivered to them, vocally, in print, by coalition building.

Randy, I fell in love with Greek food that was served to locals, not the tourist stuff. Hope you can find some great food. I envey you that trip. Be sure to keep us up-to-date with a travel log.

Chris, very good news that your migraine has ended and you are back to normal. Do you think the migraine was stress related, even as your challenges have calmed down a bit? I very rarely have migraines so have no idea what to suggest. 

I use the"Stop, Breathe, and Think" program these days. They are short little blurbs that help me stay centered. I expect this option is too simplistic, however, I offer it as a daily meditation practice.

Thanks peeps.  The diet is still taking fat off my bod.  Every once in a while, I get a craving for carbohydrates, but I've only given-in once or twice, and then didn't eat much.  I've lost 25 pounds in 48 days.

I had my blood drawn yesterday, and will see the doctor next week to go over the results of the blood tests.
