Notes from the Home Front
Replanting two wax begonias, and those tender cucumber plants took every bit of energy out of me. While replanting the cucumber plants to thin them out to other pots, wouldn't you know it - I ran out of potting soil and had to get more. At the Dollar Tree, 8 pound bags of potting soil is only $1.00, I purchased four of those and 5 more pots. All the long ones (picture posted previously) were sold out. Pictures will be included in this blog post. In the picture below, yes, those are gladiolas up against the balcony door. On the plant stand are two ivy plants and a spider plant.
Guess what is sprouting! Did someone say "green peppers"? Yes, absolutely correct, just two of them now. As the cucumbers and green peppers grow, pictures will be taken and posted to show progress.

Channel 7 had an investigation segment on the high cost of ambulances. A man requested a quote for the ambulance to pick him up and bring him to the hospital, he was quoted $600. The actual bill was for $1398.00 (no typo).

It seems that our Senators and Representatives care more about National RV (recreational vehicle) Month than they do about the millions who are suffering because unemployment benefits are being lost left and right. National RV Month will not provide shelter, food, clothing and other necessities once benefits are lost. Furthermore, we can't afford to go RV'g. Does anyone care?
In Tokyo, a robot named I-Fairy performed a wedding ceremony. The groom was responsible for the robot.
