Transplanted some tulips to a newly prepared bed. Turned soil in preparation for seedlings which will be started in 2weeks. Need to go and get the 2 raspberry bushes soon.

Put some grow light above all the seedlings before they get 17 inches tall and then flop over.  I think spring is finally coming now - we had one last snowstorm yesterday but the extended forecast shows awesome weather.  Lows in the 40s, highs in the 50/60s.  So it is time to hit that garden!

Apparently none of us remembered to collect eggs yesterday.  Our 6 hens gave me 11 eggs today. I am dazzled, and pleased with their performance.

However, Mrs Sailor loves eggs for breakfast. We eat as fast as those girls produce.  If I'm to be putting any extras by, more birds are required.
Hens giving 2 eggs a day!   :laugh:

We probably go through 12-18 a week.  Our 11 hens are keeping us well stocked.  Even our 4-year old hen is giving us an egg every 3 days.  Kids love the old girl so she may never go to the stew pot...

(OK so maybe it's another place, but I'm not sure where Annapolis is, so that's my excuse.  I guess they were simultaneously in a lot of places)

So many different regions, cultures and people... and all seem to be mixing and changing at a dizzy pace.  But Annapolis is a big city in Indiana, one of several states just below the great lakes. They are farming states, with a long tradition of hunting and guns. That, however, has not generally included individuals carrying handguns for self defense. To a farmer/hunter, it doesn't usually "fit" their culture. But they are teachable in great part, which is why this little demonstration would be useful.  I don't know how much good it does in a city full of snowflakes. sigh

Not at all.  Burying a embalmed corpse is morbid in my not so humble opinion.  Cremation is my one and only request upon death.  In fact, I hope I'll have family with the intestinal fortitude to place me upon a pyre in the back 40 and send my body back to its base elements by their own hand rather than handing it off to some offal with a title.

Raleigh
The past couple of months have brought numerous anti-gun demonstrations following the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Florida that left 17 people dead. Saturday afternoon, the other side pushed back.
Several hundred people gathered on Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh for a pro-Second Amendment rally in favor of gun rights, listening to speakers.
Many carried signs or flags. One was Tara Brandeau, a young woman who came from Randleman to wave a black "Don't Tread on Me" flag with crossed pistols.

A "funeral show?" Now that's just plain sick.

Funerals are big business.

I've always thought that there are two "industries" that are based on convincing people that they are needed when in fact they "do" something that is completely unnecessary, and a total waste of time:  The funeral industry and the real estate industry.

(As a child I remember hearing someone tell me that the definition of a government worker is "someone who does a 'job' that doesn't need to be done, and yet has a lot of people convinced that they are not only necessary and 'work hard' but are better than other 'workers'".  Maybe funeral directors and real estate agents ARE better than everyone else because they manage to get money out of people by doing things that don't really need to be done at all)

I don't mean to come across as callous but to me, embalming someone and holding an elaborate funeral for them is like putting a banana skin or an orange peel in a box and spending a heap of money and effort to bury it ceremoniously.  I believe strongly that what is left when someone dies is not the "person" but just their discarded body, just like an orange peel or a banana skin.

Callous?
