In a recent response to folks commenting on my blog post I explained that I have used the phrase "We hold these truths to be self-evident" in a number of titles of posts over the years.  When I started to seek out an appropriate thought for this Memorial Day or perhaps the Fourth of July, I realized that I had my hook for an awesome connection to an historic reference that might explain in more detail just exactly what I was talking about and why it is critically important at this time in our history.  So I will take note of a little history until I get to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.My title quote, of course, is from the Declaration of Independence.  Thomas Jefferson wrote in the preamble to the Declaration in 1776 that "We hold these truths to be self-evident,  that all men are creat...

Thank you to everyone who helped buy the supplies and put the bags together and those who donated so that supplies could be purchased. Part of the mission of Feed the People is to restore dignity to people who are struggling in life.

Last night I attened the Tredyffrin Township Summer Concert Series, Flower Power was playing.Playing in Wilson Farm Park on the stage there, they provided two hours of solid entertainment. People were socially distanced, and wearing masks when walking about. Lots of people got up and danced over the course of the evening.  Thanks were read out for the many sponsors who made the evening possible. There were probably about 150-200 people present, other people were using the park for sports practice, a little exercise. The township had plenty of signs about social distancing, and had marked out zones for those sitting on the grass. All in all well organized. There was an ice cream truck, very welcome with the hot evening.Next week Chico's Vibe a well known and loved local band will be play...

Montgomery County, Maryland Public Schools Plans Montgomery County Public Schools students will start the academic year online before returning to their classrooms on a part-time, rotating schedule, according to a newly released draft plan.The 21-page plan calls for an Aug. 31 start to the 2020-2021 school year.

Searcy AR football team 1939 - 1942This great old picture was loaned to me by Ginger Pickens Brookshire and husband Frank.  Frank was a member of another football team in approximately 1970 sponsored by Duncan's Chrysler Plymouth car dealership and still loves football. https://activerain.com/droplet/57KH This picture is so interesting because it names the folks in the picture.  You will probably remember (note I did not say recognize) several of them.  #99, Gerald Pickens, owns the picture and was another one who loaned it to me.  He bragged about their record for the years and it is written at the bottom.Thanks for another great Searcy history photograph!

We both love succulents.  There are infinite varieties  and shapes of these beauties. They are perfect for areas that may have drought conditions.  They flower with exotic looking blooms (pictured above).  They are easy to propagate. All you have to do is plant a leaf from the plant in potting soil, and off it goes creating a new plant.  Wishing you a wonderful Sunday, and a superb week ahead!

Nerdin Gardens 2020: Teeming with Productivity As tenured, back yard gardeners, we gladly take on the responsibilities of ensuring all processes and systems are in place for success. Tilling, enriching the soil with nutrients that will last the season long plus placement, matters.   Every year comes with a set of challenges like weed control, adequate pollination and weather conditions. Taking the natural approach regarding harmful pests rather than using questionable, harmful chemicals is best.  The results are most amazing and fruitful. Plant material is healthy, producing at a steady rate from garden bed to table top. Fresh is best with zucchini, crook neck squash, peppers to several varieties of tomatoes.  Many creatures are most welcome to reside in Nerdin Gardens during the summer...

Those of you who regularly follow our posts know our habit of eating Saturday breakfast at the Cold Spring Tavern.  Our last breakfast there was on March 14th, 2020.We were delighted to find out that they were reopening for lunch only from Thursday through Sunday!  Off we went to the forest.  We were seated on the upper deck with a view of the creek.  The place was almost full and we were fortunate to get a table without a reservation.They turned their wedding/events area for outdoor seating, and were able to add even more seats, when the indoor seats became forbidden. Everything we ate was great as was the service.  And since reservations are advised, we reserved a spot for lunch next week.  Care to join us?
