    If you want strawberries from your garden next season, you should do a little mulching now in order to protect the buds that have already been set. These buds were set back in August, in fact. 

    The weather was decent at the time so it should be a good year for the berries; as long as they make it through the winter unscathed.

    I have a skunk living, or at least visiting regularly, underneath the concrete steps leading to my house in New Boston. The animal, which is large and has more white on it than most skunks I see,  hasn’t caused any real issues thus far, other than scaring me twice and causing me anxiety every time I walk to the house.

  • Preserve Indiana’s status as Crossroads of America

    The North American Free Trade Agreement has been much derided and awkwardly defended since it entered force in 1994.

    November 11th is Veterans Day. It is set aside to honor men and women who have served in the military. It was originally a day to honor the end of World War One.

    Fighting in that war formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. After the war the United States observed what was called Armistice Day.
