Spring is Almost Here! - 03/18/14

Hi everyone... welcome to my blog! 

I've been trying to think about what to write for my first post.  Since we're just a few days away from the beginning of Spring (Thursday at 11:57am) flowers have been on my mind.  With a new house comes new opportunities for the outside garden!

Since our last frost usually occurs in mid April, I'll wait a few more weeks to plant.  And with the way this winter has been, I wouldn't be surprised to see our cool conditions lasting into April.  But I might as well get started with ideas!  I'd love to have bright color in front of the house, maybe with some pansies, garden phlox, iris and daylilies.  Hostas are always nice to add a bit of texture and green color. What are you favorite garden flowers?

PRESIDENT OBAMA-LETTERMAN

NEW YOKRK (AP) -- Picture two old guys telling tales and playing dominoes. Now, imagine the oldsters are President Barack Obama and David Letterman. President Obama says with his term ending and Letterman retiring, maybe they can hangout together. The president says they could play dominoes or go to Starbucks for a cup of coffee. It was President Obama's eighth time on Letterman's "Late Show." Letterman will be signing off for good on May 20.

COCAINE IN UNDERWEAR

NEW YORK (AP) -- There was a package in his underpants -- according to U.S. Customs agents. Authorities report busting a man at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, after finding a pound of cocaine in his skivvies. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say the Jamaican citizen arrived on a flight from Kingston and looked nervous. Authorities say they found two packets of coke in his underwear. He now faces federal drug smuggling charges.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-HIGH SURF

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Surf's up in Southern California -- way up. The National Weather service predicted wave heights of up to 12 feet yesterday along beaches in Orange and San Diego counties. The towering waves challenged body surfers and kept lifeguards busy, as they were pulling people from the water. Police in Seal Beach are warning inexperienced swimmers to stay out the water. The high tides are caused by a Southern Hemisphere storm.

TEST-TUBE BURGERS

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- What's for dinner? How about test tube meat? Bistro In Vitro is supposed to open Thursday. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports one of its staffers received an invitation to the opening. The eatery bills itself as the "world's first lab-grown meat restaurant." Some of the menu offerings include Knitted Meat, In Vitro Oysters, See-Through Sashimi and Liquid Turducken. But the restaurant doesn't list a location. The paper reports the lab-meat restaurant could be a publicity stunt by Next Nature Network, a Dutch think-tank and design group.
