"Spud, ditto for me on the water getting too hot for fish. I'm trying to adhere to permaculture principles and have everything I do or plant serve more than one purpose - for now rain barrels will have to simply serve as a way of harvesting…"

"Morning Everyone - I'm enjoying my morning coffee while reading all the many posts.  Just love the idea of starting new plants from cast-offs and 'found items'. You make it sound sooooo easy to start new things.  Should be…"

"Randall, Hackberry and Mulberry very prolific here too and many call them 'trash trees'.  I like to think of it as a living plant that will provide lots of shade for my very hot back yard.  It's said "CPS and the birds…"

"Okay so 'bagging' has been around for a long time.  Do I dare ask who was the genius that suggested the practice should be discontinued.  If and when I have fruit on my trees, I'm going to bag it. You are right about…"

"I'll be interested in learning what you find out Joan, and then you can explain it to me.  I too have been listening to the permaculture people and put a layer of mulched leaves on all my beds.   "

Is this a step toward reason?

I really  could relate to you when reading  your reply  to Amanda Ashcrafts thread on Atheism......I am 66 and recently became  attracted  to Atheism...finding quite  a lot of diversity.....However we all do  agree that their is no god and that religion is mostly  based  on  fables and myths....Ever since I inquired about joining  the American Humanist Association, and read the book they sent  "Non Believer Nation" by David Niose, I knew that Atheism fit perfectly into  how I believed...It answered  most of my questions, and gave me peace of mind....It wasn't long before I discovered A/N and made lots of friends  with like  minded  people.....I look forward to your threads  and blogs, so we can share our views...

Thanks for the friend invitation. I used to do that, but didn't figure it had any particular value. It's just a nice thing to do, I suppose!
