by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Area residents have been distressed by news that a facility that breeds primates for use in research is preparing to move into w estern Hendry County. Some residents are responding to an internet video clip that purports to show animal abuse and claims the facility would bring in animals infected with diseases such as ebola from an island off the African coast. The Primera facility, located south of SR 80 abutting the Lee County line, already has roads in and fencing up on 34.17 acres the company purchased some time ago. Of the total acreage, 2.31 acres will be covered by buildings; 2.61 will be paved; and 29.25 acres will remain open wooded space. The Oak Creek Hammock Site Development, as it is known, is about a year old. The plan calls for an of ce, vet buildings, equipment shed, feed storage, temporary of ce trailer, animal enclosures and an animal support building. The site plan indicates that cage waste w ill be collected and hauled off-site by a licensed contractor. Designated as "commercial waste," it is to be monitored by the Department of Env ironmental Protection, although the facility could get a variance and fall under the Tallahassee Health Program Of ce. The wooded site is to be buffered on all four sides by existing trees. The west side is fenced and, along with the south, has an existing re lane. The site plan indicates that the facility's potable water will be governed by Hendry County regulations. Hendry County EDC President Gregg Gillman said he has been working with Primera on this project for over a year and has researched the company even visited its facility in Chicago. He said the facility will provide 50 jobs including animal handlers, vets and vet assistants and will have scientists on staff. The pay is to start at $12 per hour. He called Primera a " rst class operation;" said the company has been "outstanding to work with" and has been "up front" in its dealings. He expects the facility will open in three or four months. Hendry County has issued the following statement about the Primera facility: "May 1, 2014 LaBelle, Fla. In response to recent media coverage of a new primate breeding facility to be located in Hendry County, Florida. "Hendry County Government is concerned with the current efforts being made by media outlets and animal rights activists in an effort to oppose the nonhuman primate (NHP) breeding facility, known as Primera that is currently under construction in Hendry County, Florida. "Hendry County's position is to clearly communicate the responsibility of the Board of County Commissioners over such nonhuman primate facilities. "Hendry County's authority is only to address the proper land use, zoning, site layout, drainage, buffering, and traf c impacts of such a facility, as well as building construction standards. "Animal husbandry (breeding) falls under the agriculture land use of the property procured by Primera. As such, primate breeding and holding is an allowable use under the land use category where Primera is constructing their facility. "Supervision for the conduct of Primera's business falls under various state and federal agencies, not Hendry County Government. The agencies that review Primera's operaPrimate facility meets local standards Thursday, May 8, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 19 Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantUnited States Army recruits: Front row from left: Andy Castellejo, Jonathon Salazar, Emmanuel Taylor, Rafael Garcia, Jose Errequin.

The LaBelle High School Photovoltaics Go-Kart Team, along with their coach, Ms. Andrews, competed in their rst solar powered go kart race April 5 at FGCU. With only a few months to prepare, the team built the go kart and raced against 10 other Florida schools. They placed 2nd in speed and 5th in endurance. The go-kart was obtained from FGCU last November after Ms. Andrews took a group of STEM students to an Engineering forum. A photovoltaics team was assembled at LHS, consisting of students with an interest in STEM related elds. The students worked from November until March, designing and building the go-kart. The Solar Go-Kart competition is in its 2nd year at FGCU and the university is looking to add other schools for the competition. The go-kart will now be used in classes at the high school. Ms. Andrews stated, "I am excited for this unique opportunity where the students at LHS will be able to have a solar vehicle to use in class. I look forward to working with future LHS photovoltaic teams as they continue to improve the design and performance of the machine and we will enter the FGCU Solar Competition again next year." Ms. Andrews was selected for a $1,000 FPL grant that helped fund some of the materials for the go-kart. The team was fortunate to gain insight and assistance from Jim McVay. 2 Caloosa Belle May 8, 2014 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Once again a substantial number of LaBelle High School graduating seniors are committing themselves to serving their country. Nineteen 2014 LHS seniors were recognized at a ceremony April 30, as the newest young men and women from LaBelle to take that stand. At a ceremony held in the auditorium for the young recruits and their families, Principal Jose Roquett said he honors the commitment of these LHS seniors to their country and the patriotism of the school in general. He told them that this is the " rst serious commitment of their lives" and noted the discipline and scholarship it required. He also offered thanks to their parents for their sacri ces thus far and those in the future. The recruiters praised the school, administration and teachers for sharing their commitment to patriotism with students by saying the Pledge of Allegiance every morning along with the National Anthem and a moment of silence. Navy recruiter OS2(SW/DW) Nicholas Swann noted that these young people "will take my place . relieve me of the watch" before he presented certi cates to his incoming sailors. Petty Of cer USN Swann noted that in other area schools recruiting is much harder, but praised the open door policy at LHS that provides a clear path to the future for students interested in the military. All the recruiters agreed that their job is to ensure that each student looking at the military is choosing the right path for him or her and is matched with the best branch for the individual. Sergeant Mario Sanchez, and Sgt. Zapata did the honors for the Marine Corps. Sgt. Sanchez is new to covering LHS. He lls that position as Sgt. Zapata moves on. Sgt. Zapata actually took a vacation day to be at the ceremony to congratulate the new recruits. Sgt. Zapata spoke to the gathering, saying that LHS students come from a "culture of community and school." He added that only one percent of the population serves in the military today, but that LaBelle High School surpasses that statistic. He thanked the recruits for their courage and extended that appreciation to their families. US Army recruiter Sgt. Gus Nunez provided certi cates to his young recruits. Referring to all branches of the military, he noted that "everyone is essential to complete their mission." The young soldiers were then sworn in. After that, Sgt. Nunez himself re-enlisted for another two years, sworn in by Capt. Dolores Bryant. At that point, Hendry County School ESE Director and former LHS Principal Lucinda Kelley took the podium. As the parents of two young men who joined the military, she and with her husband LHS Athletic Director Dave Kelley understand the sacri ce of military families. Ms. Kelley's father and uncle also serve and she encouraged the recruits' families to help keep them going when they hit rough spots. She told the young people that they are "close to my heart . (I) watched you grow and prepare for these important moments." She reminded them that, in order to be leaders, they needed to learn to be followers rst. She said the hard times will challenge them and help them become strong, intelligent, courageous persons. She told them to "make the most of yourself, take advantage of what's available" and added "I know how hard you worked." The event ended with refreshments in the Cowboy Cafe, including a beautiful patriotic cake made by classmate Emma Yawn White.

This Sunday is the day when more phone calls will be dialed than any other single day of the year. It is a day when restaurants will be packed to capacity and the waiting lines will be extensive. On Saturday before the big day, the orist will be designing and delivering bouquets well into the evening. Why all this commotion and calling, and delivering? Because Sunday will be Mother's Day! Eve, the scripture teaches, was the rst mother, hence her name." Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." (Genesis 3:20) Eve knew the heartache of losing a child after her son Cain killed his brother Abel. She had another son Seth. It was through Seth that the ancestry of Jesus Christ was established. Without exception, Mary played to unique role as a mother in the Bible. "When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." (John 2:3-5) Mary was the mother of the Savior of the world. How much pressure is that? It must have been hard to have the Son of God school you "[That He] is about doing his Father's business." She understood why Jesus was sent to earth, and watched Him tortured and killed. She put aside her wants for Gods. Sarah's life is recorded in both the Old and New Testaments. In Hebrews we nd these words: "By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. "Therefore from one man and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore." (11:11-12) Sarah was the wife of Abraham and struggled to have a child until Isaac was born when she was in her 90s. Sarah went on to become the rst Matriarch of the Jewish people. Rebekah, the Bible says was married to Isaac. "And Isaac prayed to the LORD for his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD granted his prayer, and Rebekah his wife conceived. The children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is thus, why do I live?" So she went to inquire of the LORD. And the LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples, born of you, shall be divided; the one shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve the younger." (Genesis. 25: 19-34) Rebekah was the mother of Jacob and Esau, the wife of Isaac. As her children grew up, she watched the rivalry. This con ict would become a divide for generations. Rebekah was known for her hard work and hospitality to strangers as she believed that they were sent by God. Rachel. She, too, was a mother. The Bible says in Genesis 30:22-23, "And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bare a son: and said, God hath taken away my reproach." Rachel was the wife of Jacob and the mother of Joseph and Benjamin. Jacob worked for Rachel's father for 14 years. By the time they united, Rachel couldn't conceive, but she pressed on, and God blessed her with a child. While the name "Jochebed" is not a well-known name, she is perhaps one of the most well-known mothers in the Bible. "And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother. And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it. And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water." (Exodus 1:22-2:10) Jochebed was the mother of Moses, Aaron and Miriam. She gave up Moses and trusted him to God by creating a boat and setting him into the Nile after Pharaoh ordered to kill all Israelite male babies. Ruth was a mother who encountered dif cult days. We read, "But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back Famous Mothers from the Bible May 1, 2014 From: Primera Management To: Hendry County Board of Commissioners & Residents Re: Response to the Recent Media Coverage & Animal Rights Activities Primera is committed to improving the quality of human and animal life. Our focus is aligned with the principles of the 3R's (Replacement, Reduction and Re nement) in our unwavering commitment to re ning the nonhuman primate research model and reducing the number of animals used in biomedical research. Hendry County, FL is ideally situated in a subtropical climate which is conducive to agricultural operations & animal welfare, ground/air transportation accessibility and the local community's appreciation for animals and their use. We stand by our commitment to create jobs and use the local community's offerings to promote economic development. Primera has assembled a team of industry experts, including nonhuman primate v eterinarians, geneticists, animal welfare and breeding/housing specialists, who have taken into consideration the variables (whether by acts of nature or human error) and consequently designed a state-of-the-art facility with rigorous processes to prevent these occurrences. Primera has ful lled all the necessary environmental impact and survey requirements to obtain permitting. The waste management and water supply systems have been reviewed and permitted by the appropriate regulatory agencies. The distorted and unsubstantiated media coverage by HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell, is sensationalist journalism designed to misguide viewers and convey an agenda-driven story. It is propaganda which is based on v arious unfounded statements, unrelated background, and false accusations. For example, Primera will not be importing 3,200 nonhuman primates from Biodia, as repeatedly claimed by the media. The concerns about the origin of primates from the island of Mauritius also brought forth the erroneous topic of the potential of the ebola virus being imported into Hendry County. This concern is unfounded as the ebola virus being discussed is not found in Mauritius, but rather thousands of ocean miles away in central regions of Africa. The United States Fish and Wildlife and Center for Disease Control (CDC) enforce strict regulations on the importation of nonhuman primates and require the quarantine of such imports. Importers must satisfy rigorous federal testing and oversight requirements which have long been established. The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) also enforces strict regulations and oversight governing the care and welfare of these nonhuman primates, as established by the federal Animal Welfare Act. These governmental agencies regularly audit the facilities as per their respective protocols. The video footage of primates shown in HLN's media coverage was assembled using multiple clips of lm taken at numerous international facilities at different periods of time. The guests featured are funded by and supporters of organizations against animals being used in biomedical research, such as Jan Creamer, President of Animal Defenders International (ADI), Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO of the Humane Society of the United States and Neal Barnard, Founder and President of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, who has been heavily funded by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Reference the below link which provides additional information on Neal Barnard: http://www.consumerfreedom. com/2007/01/188-consumer-group-calls-onvegan-diet-doctor-neal-barnard-to-comeclean-about-his-animal-rights-agenda/. The unbalanced and shock-value style of reporting portrayed in the media by various animal rights extremists re ects a prejudicial and biased image of Primera. We want to assure Hendry County residents that Primera is in full compliance with rules, guidelines and laws at the local, state and federal levels. Primera is committed to meeting the highest standards with the utmost respect for the safety and preservation of the surrounding environment. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any relevant issues with the appropriate local, state and federal of cials.

Where you go I will go, and w here you stay I will stay. Your people w ill be my people and your God my God.” (Ruth 1:16) When her husband died, Ruth cared for her widow mother-in-law, Naomi without complaint. God honored her faithfulness and blessed her with a husband and new family. She would become the mother of Obed and great-grandmother of Israel’s king David. Hannah was a mother who had some very low points in her life, yet God brought her through in a remarkable way. “And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and w ept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said, ‘O Lord of hosts, if Y ou will indeed look on the af iction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.” (Samuel 1:10-11) God answered Hannah’s prayer and she conceived Samuel. She fullled her vow to the Lord and Samuel was taken to the temple and was entrusted to the priest. Because of her obedience, Samuel became the most famous prophet in Israel’s history. If you are a mother, you are special. Just as these ladies played a unique role in the lives of their children, so you, too play a part in the lives of today’s children. You may be under appreciated by your family, mom, but one thing is for sure – you are never overlooked by God. The Bible reminds us six times to honor you and this weekend we do so. Thank you, thank you, thank you! How misplaced so many of us would be if it weren’t for you! Happy Mother’s Day and God bless you.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80 Bible MothersContinued From Page 4 TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— There were nearly 39,000 crashes in Florida last year in which a driver was driving distracted. Those crashes resulted in 201 deaths and more than 33,000 injuries. Whether it’s texting on your cell phone, eating a hamburger between appointments, or tuning in your favorite radio station, any driver who takes their focus off the road for even a second is driving distracted and the end result could be deadly. April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month in Florida and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is working to bring awareness to Floridians about the dangers of distracted driving. “Anything we can do to drive home the message that distracted driving is dangerous and often deadly is crucial to making our highways safer,” said Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Julie Jones. “‘Don’t Drive Distracted’ is a message that is especially important for young, inexperienced drivers under the age of 20 who have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes.” Nationally, more than nine people are killed and more than a thousand other are injured each day in the U.S. as the result of a distracted driver. Texting is one of the major causes of distracted driving. The National Highway Traf c Safety Administration estimates that any given daylight moment, there are 660,000 people who are texting and driving. Texting while driving was banned last year in Florida. The message to all drivers is to keep your eyes on the road, hands on the wheel and mind on driving. To learn more about safe driving behaviors, visit www. hsmv.gov and on Facebook. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the ef cient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Special Needs Shelters are truly indenti ed as facilities of last refuge for those persons in the community with health or medical condition that requires medical attention in a shelter. Hendry County's Special Needs Shelter is located at the West Glades School located in Muse, Hendry County shares a shelter with Glades County due to limited staff for the shelter.

If you live in a mobile home park or an area with an established homeowners association inquire about your association's disaster plan. It is important to register every y ear due to limited medical resources and limited space at the special needs shelter it is strongly advised that you pursue primary evacuation plans with family, friends, neighbors, Church organizations, etc. If you require hospitalization have your physician execute the necessary pre-admission procedures well in advance of a known or pending disaster such as a hurricane. If you feel you need to attend West Glades School PSN Shelter, you are required to register before you arrive at the shelter each year. Remember you are required to bring a caregiver with you to the Special Needs Shelter. Keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the shelter. Please make arrangement for their care well in advance.

9 Caloosa Belle May 8, 2014 There’s nothing like a nice clean home or business and nothing gets quite as dirty as the oor. Carpet or tile oors catch it all, even in basically clean environments. So, how do you make sure your carpet or tile is clean and healthy? Just call Mac Daddy Carpet and Tile Cleaning. Mac Daddy has been around since 2007, but now has new owners. Bob and Tara Hahn the parents of 11 children have bought the business. Many of their children are also involved in this family owned and operated endeavor. Their children are aged 23-4 years -six are their biological children, the others have been adopted. Five are actively in the business. “We have a heart for children,” Bob said. A very tight knit family, the Hahn children are home schooled and raised with strict discipline. This new venture is a great place for them to start out. Bob is a licensed building contractor. He was in management for several years but is working solely in sales now. The family currently lives in Estero, but lived in LaBelle in 2005-06 and can’t wait to get back! LaBelle area residents have been familiar with Mac Daddy since 2007 when the business was started. The Hahns believe in fair pricing and providing service to their customers. Tara said customers can expect to have the job done right the rst time. There’s no room for miscommunication in a family of that size. And they stand behind their guarantee, Bob adds. What good is having a great, clean looking oor if it’s not healthy? The Hahns use a biodegradable solution no chemicals! Their solution is safe for people and pets! They also use steam extraction for carpet cleaning, to get down to those nasty dust mites that live deep in carpeting. They can get rid of pet stains and smells and also protect your furniture with Scotchguard. Don’t forget about your upholstery, tile, grout and even ducts. Mac Daddy has a truc k power mount so they have their own power source. Residential and commercial jobs welcome and you can even get a free carpet audit no surprises! The Hahns promise to “take good care of good people.” If you need carpet or tile cleaning services, call 866-874-5457 toll free or go to www.macdaddyclean.net Clean oors it's what Mac Daddy does Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantThe Hahn family, front row from left: Lilly, Noelle Fleig, Brian, Brianna, Briasia, Anna, Andrew.

LABELLE – When Edison State College student Melissa Zamarron walks across the stage on May 2 to receive her bachelor’s degree, she will be the rst person in her family to ever do so. “Nobody on either side of my family has a bachelor’s degree,” Zamarron said. “My mom only made it to the third grade and my dad the sixth grade. My older brother tried college for a little while. No one even in my extended family has a bachelor’s degree.” The journey to her college graduation w as not an easy one. Nor was it quick. “It has taken me seven years to get this college degree—a very long seven years,” she said. With an older brother, two younger sisters, and parents that worked in the elds, Zamarron has always known what it means to struggle and sacri ce. She began working at U-Save in LaBelle when she was just 15. The money she earned went to help pay for school supplies for her two younger sisters. “The money I made went to them. I paid for their book bags, their notebooks, everything they needed for school,” she said. When she was a high school senior and still working to help her family, she dual enrolled at the Edison State College Hendry/ Glades Center, and then attended her rst two years of college at Edison for free after receiving the Isabella Curtis Scholarship. She quickly began to lose focus though, and considered dropping out. “My rst two years, I didn’t really see the importance in education,” she said. “I didn’t care, and I made very bad grades. I guess I just wasn’t ready.” However, after she began noticing that her mother’s health was quickly declining, Zamarron began to reconsider her education. “I watched how years of working in the elds in the hot sun had affected my mom’s health–the back pain, arthritis, and how she’s aged so quickly–and I didn’t want that for myself or my sisters. I realized it was time to break the chain,” she said. With the help of her professors, Zamarron refocused herself. “I wanted to work in law enforcement, but my professors said I’d never be able to if I didn’t improve my grades. They encouraged me to do better, so that’s what I did,” she said. Over time, Zamarron began to improve her grades, all the while still working to support her family. “I began getting all A’s, maybe a B here and there. It was hard and the hours were Melissa Zamarron breaks the chainSee Chain — Page 10

Her last year leading up to her degree has been the toughest, and she had to make another big sacri ce to help her reach her goal. She quit her job in order to focus entirely on her nal research project that was required to graduate. Because of that, she and her husband lost their home and had to move in with their in-laws. However, through each struggle she faced along the way, Zamarron never gave up. “As dif cult as it was at times, I never lost focus of my goal of breaking the chain, nishing school, and having an education,” she said. When Zamarron walks across the stage at Germain Arena on Friday night, her entire family will be there to cheer. She will receive her bachelor’s degree in Public Safet y Administration and hopes to go on to have a career with the Fort Myers Police Department. She also plans to eventually earn her master’s degree. ChainContinued From Page 9

by Pat DobbinsEnvironmental Health has a major role in the overall mission of public health through its efforts to prevent injury & disease by controlling environmental risks. We monitor & regulate activities that may contribute to the occurrence or transmission of disease. We strive to ensure a safe water supply, sanitary disposal of sewage, and elimination of vectors for disease transmittal. Some of the local services provided by the Environmental Division of the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties include:  Food and Waterborne Disease Investigations  Inspection of Public Pools, Mobile Home and Recreational Vehicle Parks, Food Establishments, and Group Care Facilities  Inspection of Tanning Facilities  Monitoring of Drinking Water Systems  Investigations of Groundwater Contamination  Institutional Inspections  Septic Tank Inspections  Monitoring Medical Waste  Rabid Animal Investigations  Regulation of Migrant Labor Housing  Drinking Water Lab Environmental Health regulates private and small public water supplies by collecting and analyzing water samples for bacterial contamination, and permitting and inspecting well installations. We check for setback compliance, possible contaminant sources and proper well installation to prev ent contamination. Any Onsite wastewater treatment and disposal (septic) system installed or repaired in any county is required to have a permit. We w ill help to design the new system based on anticipated water use, type of soil at the site, proximity to surface water, and separation from the wet season groundwater elevation. Due to the high water tables in SW Florida, drain elds are elevated in a mound to prevent groundwater contamination. Food programs in “not for pro t” agencies, or adult care facilities (Schools and fraternal organizations) are licensed by us. Food safety inspections are conducted on a regular basis in these facilities. The Dept. of Business & Professional Regulation inspects restaurants however outbreaks of food illness, (regardless of the source) are investigated by Environmental Health. We regulate the housing for Migrant Farmworkers and inspect for compliance with minimum housing standards, sanitary site conditions, overcrowding, safe water supply and sanitary wastewater disposal. No one is allowed to house more than 4 unrelated migrant farmworkers without rst obtaining a permit. Housing units are inspected a minimum of 8 times per year. Investigations are conducted routinely for unpermitted migrant housing. We regulate and inspect Mobile Home Parks and Recreational Vehicle Parks to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the residents, by checking for insect and rodent harborages, safe water supply and sanitary sewage disposal. Public swimming pools and spas are licensed and monitored semi-annually for compliance with disinfection and safety regulations. If a pool is considered as “noncompliant”, the pool is closed. Due to the risks associated with ultraviolet light, tanning salons are regulated and inspected. We check the facilities for safe operations and sanitary operations of the tanning beds and eye protection equipment. When biomedical waste is improperly disposed of, it can create a signi cant health hazard for sanitation workers and the general public. We enforce rules for health practitioners who generate bio-hazardous waste, and provide education and supplies for “inhome” generated sharps (needle) disposal. Because of the endemic nature of Rabies in Florida (raccoons and other wild mammal populations), we investigate all animal bite reports. A suspected animal will either be quarantined for ten days or euthanized and the brain sent to a lab to be analyzed for rabies infection. Rabies is considered a fatal disease when contracted by humans. We also investigate and enforce abatement of sanitary nuisances which are considered a public health hazard. (This is a requirement by Florida Statute). This ma y include sewage on the ground, harborages for ies or rats, dead animals, and/or decomposing garbage. The Environmental Health Division staff members are trained and knowledgeable about our communities.

It’s been awhile since I’ve w ritten my column and guess what? Many, many of my fans w ant it back. Now, I realize many of you faithful readers of the Caloosa Belle are astonished at this news but not nearly as surprised as I was! I’ve had a lot of time to ponder stuff like life in general and here are some that come to mind...How come that when you get old the hair on your head gets gray but your newly acquired chin whiskers are nice and dark... or...experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it...or...following the path of least resistance is what makes men and rivers crooked....Discovered a real food saver. .When you bring your salad greens home from the store immediately open the bag and put a paper towel or two...I’m cheap so I tear one in half.. and put it in the bag. It’s best to try to get one down each side or top and bottom. Apparently there is a problem with odor in front load washing machines. Try to keep the door open for awhile if possible and once you shut it put crumpled newspaper inside. Newsprint will get odors out of a lot of stink y stuff. W itches Brew
