    I have eight tomato plants coming along nicely so I may have more than I bargained for. Canning is not in my future. Sun-drieds maybe as the sun here is intense.

    I had no idea job discrimination against gays was still allowed in some states. On a similar topic though, discriminating against employment of older folk is alive and well even though illegal.
