So, the questions is, how do I get more Co2 into my greenhouse?

Robin Hood... it's good.

Forget what you know of Robin Hood—that he steals from the rich to give to the poor—because this version sets the legend upright; he is an avenger for justice."

“Rise and rise again until lambs become lions.”
(a reference to Jesus, coming first as a Lamb, promised to return again someday as the Lion of Judah... never give up.)

Amid gallant rescues, blazing battles, and bolts of lightning cutting the gray sky in the distance, this is the civilized world in turmoil, with Robin Hood leading the nation toward liberty and enlightenment. He deals in contracts—neither having faith nor initiating force—and, when foreign invaders make their presence known, he steps up to speak out and call for a “charter of rights” establishing “liberty by law”. Neither a prince nor a thief; this Robin Hood is a man of reason.

Marion, his lady and his equal, when the government comes to steal her wealth, dictating that “no one should have 4,000 acres” Marion replies: “it's 5,000 acres.” No little woman depending on others to defend her property, she knows how, when, and why to use a weapon.

The power-lust of religion meets the power-lust of the state and, as England becomes a God-state, Robin Hood assumes his well-deserved role as outlaw, legend, hero to the oppressed. With strong characters, stunning conflicts, and Russell Crowe playing Robin Hood just right, getting there is half the fun.

A book of Miracles and High Seas Adventures...

I just finished this book, Jesus & Company, that I have been meaning to read for over a year. It was written by the founder of Friend Ships, a charitable Christian organization that delivers food to the poor in America and around the globe, mostly by the ship-load.
It is such a tale of adventurous faith. Miracle after miracle, mission after mission... we are totally going on one of their adventures one day. It is just such a wonderful tale showing how God provides against all odds, through us, when we follow in faith.
Carol and Dan, John and I especially think of you when we think of Friend Ship adventures. I am mailing you a copy of the original article that I found about these folks. Would you like to join us on high seas adventures one day?

Happy Mother's Day!

Yesterday was a wonderful mother's day. Met my mama and soon-to-be sister and her family out at Mario's pizza! Yum! It was wonderful, and my hubby and kiddos made a wonderful day of it! My little Willow was all decked out for Susu (my mom). She had hair extensions and all. She was a spunky little princess all day.

Also... check out the garden. My salad is almost complete!!! Bwahahaha!!! I have the Raspberry vinaigrette ready and waiting!!
