Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I hear this a lot. Can you please put into a few bullet points what exactly our country is losing? While I feel we’ve hopefully only temporarily lost our way, all I feel we’ve lost lately is the ability to see both sides of an issue and compromise. I have no idea what Maddy is talking about, but I'...

Re: Fed Going Nuclear - Will the PP get radiation poisoning?

Garlic is very easy to grow and stores well I tried once and failed -- thanks for making me feel bad! :P Not sure what happened, but it grew a green shoot up, but didn't actually grow the garlic cloves.
