I am continuing to highlight fall chores this week with a few thoughts about soil testing from our Horticulture expert Ward Upham. Soil testing is one of the most basic, but important items that you can do to help your landscape thrive. If you have your soil tested in the fall, you still have time to amend it before the winter freeze. This gives any added organic matter and minerals time to mix into the existing soil for a ready to plant area in the spring. Happy testing!

There was joke that made the rounds when Bill Clinton was trying to figure out how to allow gays in the military without upsetting morale. "Gays in the military," the joke went. "Next thing you know they'll want to be interior decorators!" Of course, gays have always served in our military. Now, after long last, they can serve openly, and as it turns out it is no big whoop.
After 13 years of war in Afghanistan - the longest in US history - the US government has achieved no victory. Afghanistan is in chaos and would collapse completely without regular infusions of US money. The war has been a failure, but Washington will not admit it.
