If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad; if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

Spring is Creeping In
Even though there is snow on the ground and it has only warmed to 43F today so far, the calendar and almanac are telling me that today is the day to plant tomato and pepper plants indoors. Minimonk sent me this picture this morning and I thought it was funny. It came with the caption "Summer's almost here...I can see the deer moving around in the backyard. Yep, won't be long" No idea who or where the picture came from but it is an appropriate sentiment for us frustrated Atlanta gardeners itching to get started with our spring gardens but thwarted by snow of all things. Off to play in the dirt.
