    I've been thinking about something for awhile now that I think might behoove us all to consider. That is simple fact that we are a global community each with our native customs and upbringing and many are not super conversant in American English and ways of expression or terms used. Once in a while I see some short temper derisiveness or dismissal due to mis- understanding. I do not exclude myself from this bad behavior and I regret this. Patience and common courtesy are virtues I struggle with too but I'm trying! Just thought we can all use a little reminder now and then. Smile when your writing and it will show through!

      I've 'held my tongue' if I wasn't sure of someone's question or thought it was kind of 'simple'. Even native English-speaking growers can have communication challenges, be on the spectrum, insecure, or just learn differently but they're trying to grow their medicine, same as everyone else. Great post.

      Thanks Puglover1, you are so right! It ain't necessarily "them furriners." I think we all occasionally stumble when trying to express a new idea. Remember just "poking a little fun at someone" can be hurtful. ;<)

      After clicking that first link I'm a bit insulted by their picture choice for Illinois. While I think I may have partied on that country road a few times we certainly deserve to be represented as well as Indiana. LOL!

      The Virginia number for consumers per capita kind of surprises me. I think people liked out of paranoia.
      NC is a bit of a surprise but I think like Virginia, they were a burley tobacco state that is losing tax income as fewer people smoke cigarettes so they're looking for a way to bring those dollars back to the state. I read long ago that Phillip Morris bought the rights to "Marley", as in Bob's last name. Makes me think they've had a long range plan...

            And here we go again folks... One more week down.
            Everyone is staying pretty busy, we have new grows starting, grows about ready to go into flower and members who are waiting on cooler weather to pop the beans. On top of daily lives and grows everyone has been busy helping others and doing what they can to assist growers, new and old alike. As always, AMAZING JOB folks! Thanks to all of you for just being who you are - YOU make life better!

            Just a reminder, when things start getting to be a bit much, "Don't you go to war with yourself, you got other things to do."
            Sometime we all just need to Put Down What You are Carrying
            Have a Great week folks - thanks for helping to shoulder the load for our brothers and sisters.

              Saturday's Featured Song sneaks in early - right on time
              A few thoughts on perception and the passing of time: I remember when going to college I hated my Psych101 class but paradoxically loved the magazine Psychology Today. One thing I learned from the magazine that I never got out of the class was useful information on the brains concept of the passage of time. I will always remember the term 'original awareness', and found that it is in effect the brains idea of fun. I guess you could call it the fun of fun - When you are truly involved in what you are doing - being here now - THERE IS NO TIME. Your brain is completely absorbed in the moment, good or bad, you are experiencing everything as fully as possible and time simply doesn't exist. Allow your brain and thoughts to wander and soon you find yourself looking at the clock wishing time would just get on with it. When you're absorbed in whatever your doing you've just found the key to forever. The always now.

              The future disappears into memory
              With only a moment between
              Forever dwells in that moment
              Hope is what remains to be seen
              Neil Peart - RUSH

                Wow - that was fast. This week and this month have had wings it seems.

                To help get this week started here’s just one of many favorite quotes by Norman Vincent Peale -

                “Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

                Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”

                ​​​​​​​Have a great week my friends!

                      Ok time to admit it. I'm old. Been lurking here for a while now might as well introduce myself. Names 2fast. I'm 50....ish. grew up on a farm to a blue collar dad who was a part time commercial waterman. How's that for a combo. Our high school had a horticultural department and I had to take a lot of burner classes so I spent half of my junior year in the greenhouse. Built my own when I was 11. Always grew my own veggies. Been growing this "veggie" for........awhile. mostly outdoors until recently.
                      Been playing with different strains now that I can. One thing about mid Atlantic summers. Way too hot and humid for anything but heavy sativa leaning strains outside. Indoors I can grow anything. My last run one of the three plants was black cream which is 90% indica and she did great. Look forward to chatting with you old coots. Stay off my lawn. Where's my poking stick?
