    There’s a symbiotic relationship between peonies and ants…

    However, deer hate them because of their aroma.

    In Utah they pronounce it “peeYOnies”. I was from Florida where they don’t exist so I’d no idea until I moved elsewhere of the way everyone else says it. They also call blue iris “blue flags”. Although we are zone 8 I really don’t think we get anywhere near enough cold.

      Peonies are really Big Business on the Kenai Peninsula in Southcentral Alaska. We have many commercial growers here. White peonies are particularly popular for weddings.

      Czar and czarina, I am sooooo envious of your garden! 90 foot rows, wow! And to be able to grow REAL tomatoes, sweet corn (Silver Queen) and okra…oh, devoutly to be wished! We do well with root crops here, but not with the hot-weather vegetables.

        Summertime must include corn, okra, tomatoes, squash. All preferably served with a big ole pot of beans, some mashed potatoes and cornbread. Maybe turnip greens.

        While I have no place for a garden, I live about 3 miles from the roadside farmers stand, right at the edge of the fields.

        In a month or so it’ll be time to make the first tomato pie. Yum!

  7. I never listened to this guy, but this is a work of genius. Absolute gifted genius.

    I hope Kanye West changes things like I hoped Trump would.

    Runaway is the title of the video, and he is running away from his MK programming.

    (Or using it. i don’t know which.) i wish him the best.

    I stopped listening to Rap when Ice-T and N.W.A. were big.

    I hope Kanye listens to Sage Francis, and I know Kanye is learning.

    His industry, and most of his fanbase, is sick, and evil, and wrong. And he is in a position to change it all for the better.

    His former slaveowners, and his former masters, are attacking him daily for his message.

    This isn’t D vs. R, this is slave vs. free. If you can’t keep up with the lyrics, because you’re old, Google lyrics Kanye Runaway in a separate tab. I had to.

    • “So we’ve all seen conservatives suddenly go liberal, right? David ‘Media Matters’ Brock is the first example that comes to mind. And there have been others. Sh* happens, right? And of course, the opposite happens as well, some liberals become conservative. But here’s the funny thing: there are a number of black liberals who have gone conservative, but not the opposite: I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black conservative go liberal. Maybe it’s like what Harriet Tubman said about seeing hundreds of escaped slaves but never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave.”

    Have you ever had a Poloma cocktail? It’s basically tequila and grapefruit soda (like Squirt) and lime. Squirt makes a ruby red grapefruit soda, which is perfect. I also found this punch recipe, which sounds great for a party:

    Mix 2 six-packs of Sanpellegrino Pompelmo grapefruit soda, 20 oz. seltzer water, two cans frozen Bacardi margarita mix, and about 1/2 of a 750 ml bottle of silver tequila. To make it pink (much more festive!), add 2 tbsp or so grenadine. Taste and adjust if needed. Garnish with sliced rounds of limes and large squares of ice. Put out with ice, lime wedges and salt for guests.

    This is so absurd. This school is dictating how to behave on cinco de mayo, which isnt anything to celebrate anyways. My family culturally appropriates all cultures because we live in the US. And…..tacos are delicious. Are we not allowed Mexican or sushi anymore either?

    “Biggs Garbuio concluded by suggesting that students go toย the Facebook pageย of the the Unity Multicultural Education Center (UMEC), which includes a graphic and link to aย websiteย listingย โ€œ6 Ways To Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Without Appropriating The Mexican Culture.โ€ย 

    The website gives tips which include,ย โ€œIt’s a good thing to ask yourself if what you’re wearing may be offensive to the culture you’re celebrating. And if you have to ask, you should probably refrain,โ€ย as well as,ย โ€œespecially don’t say things like โ€˜drinkoโ€™ or โ€˜eatoโ€™ or decide to bust out โ€˜andaleโ€™ or โ€˜hola.โ€™โ€

    The graphic on the UMEC Facebook provided additional advice for โ€œalternative ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo,โ€ starting withย โ€œdonโ€™t you dare put on that โ€˜sombrero.โ€™โ€

    Instead, it suggests that students โ€œlearn about the history of Cinco de Mayo and how it became a part of US popular culture.โ€ While they are doing that, it adds, they should try to โ€œacknowledge the stereotypes you have internalized and discover why they are problematic.โ€

    It then recommends that students โ€œsupport AUTHENTIC Mexican businesses,โ€ but immediately clarifies that โ€œCHIPOTLE DOESNโ€™T COUNT,โ€ apparently because it does not employ โ€œactual Mexican people.”

    Seen on Facebook:

    A mural painted on a California school depicts an Aztec warrior spearing President Trumpโ€™s decapitated head. The artist, Sasha Andrade, claims that the high school approved of the image before she painted it. The mural was part of an event to raise money for scholarships.

    โ€œWe understand that there was a mural painted at the event this past weekend that does not align with our schoolโ€™s philosophy of non-violence. We have been in communication with the artist who has agreed to modify the artwork to better align with the schoolโ€™s philosophy,โ€ MAAC Charter Director Tommy Ramirez said.

    The mission statement of the charter school is to โ€œcreate a safe and accepting environment.” Huh? Sounds like mob rule to me. They approved the mural and were hoping not to get caught. It is a federal crime to threaten the president of the United States. Was this a threat or is it simply freedom of expression? These are the people teaching America’s children. Sick.


    • stella says:

      She was, according to the statement, painting this at a school event. None of the school administrators were present to see it at the time? Sure. Right.

      Anyone of Mexican descent thinking the Aztecs are a people to emulate knows nothing about history. The Aztecs killed, kidnapped, raped other tribes in order to force their quest to be the prime dictators of Mexico. Comply or die were the choices. Stupid woman.

    CA to mandate all new homes run on solar starting in 2020. Do you know homes are upwards of 300k used? New homes that I see start at 400 and thats no landscaping, white paint, base models? The state stopped caring about business but who can afford this added cost? Edison charges for access to the grid even if you contribute solar, bc they were losing money. Im not surprised, just disappointed in the myopic die hard envirowhackos.

    lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
