Growing Things

My garden is starting to grow. We had a late frost that killed all my starter plants, so I had to start over. I have had better luck at starting from seeds anyway.
Now I am battling the weeds and bugs. Why is it hat my plants grow slow. Weeds pop up healthy and strong. The bugs don't want to eat those nice lush weeds, they go after my little beans and tomatoes. Oh well, my plants are growing. Now if we just get some rain.

Politics and Ron Paul

This blog and my posts have been about my hobbies and my life. For the most part that will continue. I have not gotten into politics here, but that will change.
I have recently gotten involved with promoting a candidate for President. I had always supported whoever I thought was the best choice or the lesser of two evils. This time I have found someone that I really believe in.
That is Dr. Ron Paul. For more about him this is from his campaign.

Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.

Please consider him. You can find out more here,

Eletrical Upgrades;part 2

Well we are still waiting for the inspector to pass us. We have not heard or seen anything. I guess it is on the "list" somewhere.
On the plus side, we had some small storms come through. Even with the temporary hook-up we have not had the power surges. This confirms that the problem was the overhead wires. Much better.
I'm posting some before and after pics. for contrast, quite an improvement.
