  • This time last year I had some healthy looking tomato plants, which was a delight because in 2009, I had some disease issues.  
    Turned out that 2010 was a bust though because of all the crazy heat we had.
    This year the garden and the tomatoes look promising, but I am always on the lookout for emerging problems. So far the 2011 day-time and night-time summer weather and temperature are absolutely perfect for tomatoes.

  • A few weeks ago I was with a group of senior adults and asked, “How many of you would say, for the most part, that you’re happy?”
    Almost all of them raised their hands.
    I told them I’m mostly happy, too, although I would be completely, totally, 100 percent happy if my kitchen floor would stay clean, I had a flat stomach and if I could eat birthday cake with butter cream frosting every meal every day without feeling sick or getting fat.
