Jack was a friendly man, who always had a pleasant word and a smile and handshake for everyone. The men hung with him at barbeques and discussed sports. He was strong, had a belly, and always wore a baseball cap. He was married to his high school sweetheart, Mary. He was good to his 4 kids and took care of his oldest child when he had a breakdown in his early twenties. He went to all school and family events and encouraged his children in their dreams. He took care of the family needs and finances. Read more about The House that Jack's Bank Took

Friiiday. Bad week for me. And funnily enough, I wasn't even thinking about money when I said that.
Please post jokes.
Why do we have elections?
Because Monopoly with real money gets boring.
Because junior high is too short.
Because there's only so many people you can hurt with religion.
To check the census.
Because how many other booths can you leap out of and save the world?!
(please don't try this at your own polling place; caped crusader collusions can turn to violence.)
Because otherwise we'd know we have no choice.
To keep us in practice filling out those little oval bubbles. Otherwise we might forget between the SATs and the Social Security forms.
So the Village can blame us.
What else can be stolen so cheaply anymore?
Because shop early, shop often isn't funny. Read more about Friday Joke Exchange

The wise among us suspected I'd be back about the tomato, soon, didn't you? Yes, the tomato's powdery mildew came back. So I finally took the advise y'all had so generously given, and treated the leaves with baking soda (and a little bit of dish soap), but awkwardly, by combining dry baking soda with a little soap and water on my fingers and very gently mashing it on top of any powdery mildew outbreaks. I fed the tomato right afterwards. That was two days ago. The tomato looks more vigorous now--and mildew free so far, now that all the baking soda has fallen off.
The frost two nights ago was pretty hard. The unpatterned frost on the vehicle windshield was thick. There was white ice outlining each piece of the longer grass. Read more about The Rose, the Tomato and the Grocery Store Run
