  • Trump’s Afghan speech on target

    President Trump made big news Monday when he was photographed staring up at the solar eclipse without the recommended safety glasses. He made much more important news later that day in a speech revealing the United States’ new policy for the 16-year-old war in Afganistan. Of course, if you are like millions of Americans who get your news off Yahoo or late night comedy shows, Trump’s policy speech wasn’t as important as his cheating blindness.

  • Looking up

    America looked up on Monday. Wearing silly glasses and sporting goofy grins, Americans stepped outside from coast to coast and glanced heavenward to catch a glimpse of a celestial marvel.

    After several days, weeks and even months of looking sideways at each other because of political divisions, Americans stopped the bickering for at least a couple of hours, and then looked in the same direction.

  • Tomato varieties determine the amount of harvest

    I received a letter from a reader years ago that asked somewhat of a philosophical question regarding determinate tomatoes.  Yes, philosophical, because she asked why would we plant a tomato that sets its fruit, reaches a certain point, stops growing, ripens nearly at once and then dies?  Our love affair with homegrown tomatoes would more logically dictate that we grew only indeterminate tomatoes that reached monstrous proportions and yielded fruit into a first killing frost.
