Despite Death: Thoughts on Hope

The most interesting part of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, to me, is the commitment of the characters to carry out their mission despite their circumstances. They are at times limited in their communication with one another, but they are constantly fighting for their own survival. I often find this challenging for myself.

Differences between our raised and traditional garden beds: what worked well in each

I love trying different things in order to find the best way of doing something. Our taco seasoning is a bit different every time. This is because it has yet to produce perfect results.

So, we have cats. There are many wonderful benefits of having cats (though momentarily they allude me…), yet there are some cons. Such as when they attack your defenseless seedlings.
