Dear Diary...

Important things to remember


Crowbarring a 208-volt circuit produces a considerably brighter flash than if it had been only 120 volts.

Dear Diary...

The Forsythia Saga


In a corner of my front yard is a forsythia bush.  It’s been there for as long as I’ve had the house, and has never been a notable bloomer.  Some springs, all I get are a few yellow leaves, followed by the usual masses of green.

This year, I’d made up my mind: No more.  Come summer, Forsythia bush on Saturday.I’d yank the old bush out and replace it with something else.  So of course I would walk out the door on Saturday morning to find:

The same bush, (with a bad sun angle) this afternoon:
Forsythia bush today.
One of the best displays it’s ever had (though it’s still not as impressive as one down the block):
Forsythia bush down the block
So what to do?  Give it some TLC for another year, or ruthlessly yank it and start over?

Meanwhile, the magnolias have made their appearance almost three weeks early, and are spectacular:

And the dandelions are already blooming, meaning it’s nearly too late for this year’s crabgrass treatment.  Seems as if everything blossomed at once!
