I went over it with a fine-toothed en-US comb and mailed it in. Before I mailed it in, en-US I did not get anything from any candidate, en-US but after I had requested the mail-in ballot, I en-US was bombarded with giant postcards. en-US Which, thank God, have now ended.en-US I took all the giant postcards and threw en-US them in the garbage along with my ballot. I en-US am never voting again.en-USLooking for extraterrestrialsen-USWhy would aliens want to visit us? en-US When you go to the zoo to see your favoren-US -en-US ite animals, do you get in the enclosure with en-US them? Nope. Too many humans here on en-US Earth still cannot live in peace with other en-US humans they perceive to be different. Why en-US would aliens put themselves in danger to en-US communicate with a species that would be en-US technologically inferior and likely hostile?en-US For a long time I have wanted to meet an en-US intelligent extraterrestrial, because I thought en-US they would be able to help me, or help all of en-US us, with some better brain power.en-US What I realized (while waiting!) is there en-US are plenty of strange creatures here on Earth en-US that are intelligent in ways other than en-US human and we need to learn to "hear" what en-US they have to teach us before we go looking en-US out there. It's all here. What if any of these en-US creatures now on Earth were originally en-US extraterrestrials who crash landed?en-US Look into Ancient Sumerian culture. en-US Their clay tablet writings say we were geneten-US -en-US ically engineered by extraterrestrials using en-US part of their own DNA and they taught us en-US all the math and sciences. Created in God's en-US image indeed. Who knows?en-USIt can't be that difficulten-USWe moved to Florida more than 20 years en-US ago. In all those years we have never seen a en-US lawn-service truck with equipment trailer en-US that wasn't being driven from 12 to 18 inchen-US -en-US es over the center line into oncoming traffic. en-US Not once.en-US To make matters worse, there are thouen-US-en-US sands of these vehicles in the state. Having en-US to travel A1A frequently, we have had close en-US calls too many times to count. I consider en-US myself a courteous driver, but in many en-US instances with these violators, there is no en-US place for the law-abiding motorist to go.en-US There is an old saying "people who don't en-US know how to drive large vehicles should not en-US own big vehicles." (Their) mindset is "on to en-US the next." It should be "on to the next safely."en-USIronyen-USHow can anybody believe that a politician en-US who fought feverishly to take Pro-Life susen-US -en-US taining healthcare access away from tens of en-US millions of the neighbors we love as ouren-US -en-US selves could ever be considered to be a Pro-en-US Life Christian politician running for office? en-US This, in my mind, only confirms their en-US hypocrisy and ineptitude to serve in our en-US government. en-US Pro-life does not end at birth, folks, sorry, en-US it doesn't. Insist your politicians be more en-US honest than hypocritical.en-USLeave handicap spots en-US to the handicappeden-USI frequently see cars in handicapped spots en-US that dont belong there. You know who you en-US are.en-US I also see people in handicapped restroom en-US stalls changing their clothes. This is espeen-US -en-US cially bad at restaurants as servers arrive at en-US work.en-US There are people who really need the en-US parking space and the restroom stall. Please en-US be thankful you dont need it and leave it for en-US those who do.en-USStop ranting, start ravingen-USBeing a first time reader of this section, I en-US was disheartened to find almost no one en-US "raving". I literally shake my head when I en-US read all the complaining and negativity peoen-US -en-US ple are spewing about government, political en-US parties, plastic, two jobs and ends not meeten-US -en-US ing, gas prices, unbiased reporting, socialen-US -en-US ism, power plays and civilized humanity.

A great alternative to an en-US artificial tree and/or a live tree is a Norfolk en-US Island pine. They are available at most en-US retailers and come in several sizes. Some en-US even come already decorated and ready to en-US go. en-US The Norfolk Island pine does require a en-US well-lit area of your home if you are going en-US to keep it indoors for an extended period of en-US time. These trees have distinctly flat en-US branches and short soft needles. These trees en-US thrive in humid environments which makes en-US them right at home in Florida. The soil en-US conditions for this tree should be on the en-US moist side. A sure sign the tree is not en-US getting enough moisture is when you start en-US to see a lot of dead lower branches. The en-US Norfolk pine does not regenerate its lost en-US limbs or needles so it is important to stay en-US on a steady watering schedule. If the tree is en-US over watered, you will begin to see areas of en-US bright yellow needles that fall off easily. To en-US avoid this condition, be sure the plant is not en-US standing in water. If you purchase a tree en-US with foil wrap on it, be sure to slit the foil so en-US water can drain from the pot. It is not en-US recommended that the trees be pruned as en-US the plant can loose its symmetrical shape. en-US Most retailers will also include many other en-US varieties of plants that are decorated and en-US ready to enjoy.en-US If you are one of the many Americans en-US who are buying a live tree this year, here are en-US a few tips to help you with the process. en-US Since live trees in our area are trucked very en-US long distances to their destination, picking en-US out the freshest looking tree is extremely en-US important. Make sure your tree is green en-US with minimal brown branches. Check the en-US needles of the tree and be sure that they are en-US flexible and do not fall off when you brush en-US the branches. Another good check is to en-US bounce the tree lightly on the cut end to see en-US how aggressively the leaves fall off the en-US branches. Avoid trees that shed leaves en-US aggressively with this procedure. Another en-US point to consider is the location the tree will en-US be placed. Be sure to get accurate measureen-US -en-US ments of the area so you can get a tree that en-US is tailored to its location.en-US You have finally picked out your prize en-US tree so now whats next? The most importen-US -en-US ant task is to get your tree in its stand and en-US located where it will spend the remainder of en-US the season. If it has not been done at the en-US place of purchase, cut off about an inch en-US from the bottom the tree before mounting en-US in the stand. This will greatly aid the tree in en-US absorbing water. Once the tree is mounted, en-US be sure to add water immediately. The en-US sooner all this is done the better. en-US Now its time to decorate your new tree en-US with all the goodies you have been collecten-US -en-US ing the past couple of weeks. Use caution en-US when using lights especially if you use the en-US larger C-7 type lights. As long as the tree en-US remains moist and the needles pliable, the en-US tree will not be a huge fire hazard. As the en-US tree ages and you get near the end of the en-US season, more caution is advised since the en-US tree structure will become drier in nature. en-US Now that all the work is done, the time en-US has come to sit back with your favorite en-US beverage and enjoy your masterpiece!en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.
