New Spring Garden

I planted a little vegetable garden today. Sweet corn, lettuce, onions, string beans, banana peppers, red bell peppers, cherry tomatos, and red grape tomatos.

Finished

So in 2-3 weeks we should see some sprouts and first harvest is expected in about 70 days.

Pontification

I posted this on facebook but I will put it here too.

Hey, HELLO all you worldwide facebooker friends. What an exceptionally nice day today. Not only was it a day off from the hustle and bustle of Spring Training, but a beautiful sunny day here in Arizona. I biked over 10 miles today, grilled some burgers and sipped a few glasses of wine and now BEWARE because I am at the typing keyboard and feeling GRATEFUL.
The man in the purple pajamas retired yesterday leaving a void so I am taking it upon myself to pontificate for a bit, before a red pajama gets promoted.
I read a post earlier that struck me as funny. Seems there is a movement, or indignation? That a newly minted coin in USA does not say “IN GOD WE TRUST”. Now I assume the god referred to is the Judeo-Christian god we know from King James.
People were posting that you should ask for different money if offered this coin as change or otherwise received one. I will gladly accept these coins if you feel they are not to your liking ( Message me for my address).
Seriously, the god 99% of Americans believe in is the King James god and here is the deal. Remember his son? Jesus if I recall, overturned the tables and ran rampage in the tents of the moneylenders in the markets of Jerusalem. Seems to me like he was opposed to credit and money for money’s sake. Do you really think he would care if his dads name was on a coin? I believe exactly the opposite.
One more thing is the separation of church and state. Our nation is still founded on the constitution and it CLEARLY states that they should remain separate. TJ, (Tommy Jefferson, a close personal friend ) would be appalled.
NOW NOW, please don’t think I am sacrilegious. I feel that If one is truly spiritual and believes in the inherent good of man they do not need to publicly enforce there beliefs on others. In fact The book of Matthew says pray in solitude and privacy.
The good we spread to others is a mighty force and we need not lower ourselves to the petty trappings of material things ( pretty metaphysical there ain’t I?) I will go FURTHER, inside us all is a force that is godlike, if we tap into that we can overcome hardships and realize exactly what is important.
Like dancing like no one is looking.

Heavy stuff but time is short and rust never sleeps, ROCK N Roll.
