  • In case you haven’t heard of Matt Harding, let me tell you about him.
    A former video game designer, at age 23 he quit his job to travel around Southeast Asia until his money ran out.
    While he was in Hanoi taking photos, his traveling buddy said, “Hey, why don’t you stand over there and do your stupid dance and I’ll record it?”
    Harding did his stupid signature dance and thought the video was funny, so he started doing it and recording it everywhere he went on his trip and posted it on his blog for his friends to see.

  • With spring just around the corner, with my brain a little mushy from a long cold winter, I thought it was time to brush up on some garden nomenclature.  
    I have long been convinced of the value of understanding more about plants than the mere fact that they need sun, soil and water.    
    The more we learn about what it is that plants need and how to determine if they are getting it, the more we will enjoy the act of gardening.
