    what's your favorite garden tomato?

    Like Steelnut, I like Celebrity for eating and San Marzano for canning. Both grow under adverse conditions. I'm trying a cultivar of Celebrity this year it is called Celebration. Celebrity seeds are difficult to come by. I try something new each year also. This year beside Celebrity it is Maestro. I also saved seeds from the Kumato and we shall see if they are an open pollinated plant or a hybrid.

    DTEGC May Meeting

    until
    The Down to Earth Garden Club will be meeting Thursday, May 24 at 7:00 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 875 Sunflower Drive. The guest speaker at the May meeting will be Cheryl Hannah. She is employed in the Physical Therapy Department at Penn Highlands and has been an EMT for 22 years. Hannah became interested in Tia Chi in 2016 and subsequently became an instructor. She says, “Tai Chi is calming, alleviates stress, is easy to do and safe for your joints, not to mention how much fun it is.” Tai Chi dates back 2500 years and originated in China as a martial art. Unlike the more obvious martial arts Tai Chi does not involve aggressive moves or overt physical force. It concentrates on slow, meditative, rhythmic movements that bring calm and internal peace. It is said that a true Tai Chi master can defect an attack using the principle that "four ounces can deflect a thousand pounds." Tai Chi is said to have numerous health benefits including delaying the aging process, alleviating arthritis and joint pain, lowering blood pressure and improving balance. There will be a short meeting following the presentation. We will have the results of the plant sale for discussion. For more information call 371-8672 or 375-9528, email downtoearthgardenclub@hotmail.com or visit the group’s web page at www.downtoearthgardenclub.org or check on Facebook.

    5 Foods Americans Call By Different Names

    Ditch the mayo and try it with balsamic vinegar. Live a little.
  6. "Dutch" is a corruption of Deutsch which is German for the language spoken in Germany. A German is a Deutscher and Germany is Deutschland. The Amish were called Pennsylvania Dutch because they spoke Deutsch. For those who don't do German I believe it is pronounced Doy-tch with the oy sounding like soy.

    Fried green tomatoes on the BLT.
  8. Which is all very well but if I called all those who were not like me by a name I chose I would be accused of stereotyping or worse. Maybe those who are of Irish extraction in particular are going to take extreme offense at being called English. Different rules of political correctness for different folks just like the rules of the road do not apply?

    You sittig down Mr D?

    Those are what we call "famous last words."
  11. 1. If you start thinking the way I do you could be in big trouble. 2. That makes 4 ways to kill someone with bread. A little long term though.
  12. Both books have been deadly weapons for thousands of years and continue to be deadly weapons. I'd put them right up there with automatic weapons as they have probably killed more people. Religious crimes are always hate crimes. The bible says to love thy neighbor and the Koran says that Allah made the tribes and they should not despise each other yet millions have died because of each book. Man can turn anything into a weapon. I can think of at least 3 ways to kill someone with a loaf of bread. Sorry, I've probably twisted what you meant so I'd say that using a religious book to bludgeon someone to death would not be a hate crime in the sense that you mean unless the motive was religious in nature. The very fact that it was used as a weapon would desecrate the book to the point that it would lose its consecrated status. That of course comes from the Christian tradition whereby objects and buildings can be consecrated. In describing a holy book used as a weapon to commit a single murder I would not apply the word "deadly." It is just my opinion but I think that deadly can only be applied to objects that intrinsically can maim or kill. Axes are deadly weapons as are knives and chain saws. All have benign uses but their purpose is to cut. Books and loaves of bread can be used to kill but are not deadly in the sense that their major function is harmless. They are just murder weapons leaving out the deadly. Too serious? Start thinking about ways to kill someone with a loaf of bread.
  13. Not me and not you specifically. I just think all people are weird. Laws don't apply to the Amish because of their religion. I can't wait until the Scientologists start calling in their alien progenitors and apply for immigrant status and welfare for them.

    What Ducks Are Better?

    There are some weird looking ducks wandering the streets of Clearfield. I was told they were Muscovys. Might want to go over and see if they are still there. I'm sure they would be happier with you than being homeless in Clearfield.
