I am not saying I am proud of this but....

I am not an animal lover but how I got here makes perfect sense. My Mother was the youngest of 13 and grew up on a really poor farm during the Depression. Animals were work and a necessity not pets.

(Got to keep Mom happy!) Classically every time I would touch the dog Mom would scream "Go Wash Your Hands!" Well it doesn't...

Do you love tulips?

It's time for a Spring Tale... My grandmother had a beautiful tulip garden and we all waited for them to bloom. It was so breathtakenly beautiful. I could not wait to have my own garden. So when we bought our weekend home in Northern California the first thing I did was plant hundred of tulips. Every Spring weekend I would check on their progress. They reminded me of soldiers standing at attention. On the third weekend of April I determined that next weekend would be the Grand Opening.On Friday I just couldn't wait any longer so I left work early to...
