The sun came out...

so of course I couldn't be in. I planted my hosta, ferns and Caladiums. I also put in a bit of color with some English Primroses. I have a shady area that is challenging to plant in. I haven't planted the Camelia yet as my son Andrew was out on a job today. He is big and strong and can dig the large hole that needs to be done for it.

My youngest and I put seeds in peat pots to start in these mini greenhouses. The preparation of the soil will be a big job, but the rewards will be awesome. It will be a big garden with all the usual vegetable and fruits. I might even put in an artichoke to keep the rhubarb company.

Usually, I have found, that anything worth doing is usually going to take considerable work. The work might be enjoyable, but cannot be circumvented. I especially wanted my children to learn to appreciate the earth and to care for it, protect it. I must have done an ok job as my daughter is in college now studying to be an environmental biologist or something like that. It is a course of a lot of hard science and math. Luckily, she is a bright gal and does well.

Teaching the next generation the important things is a big step in helping us all.

..rhubarb likes being near the compost heap.

sneaking the rhubarb stalks in my Aunt's garden.
Nothing sour could dissuade us from this. It was a point of courage to suck on them without puckering. If one could do it without her frenzied rooster from attacking.. so much the better.

Well, good on the compost pile.. as the garden is going to me smack dab in the middle of it... will have to do the compost somewhere else now.

When Jon Stewart took over the anchor’s seat of “The Daily Show” from Craig Kilborn, nobody was quite sure what to expect. The opening jokes were about President Clinton’s impeachment trial. One gag involved a Senator Jesse Helms action figure that, Stephen Colbert deadpanned, came with a gay figure for the Helms doll to hate. Watch the entire clip here →Madeleine SmithbergCo-creator of 'The Daily Show'I’d love to say I planned some amazing premiere episode for Jon for his first show, but I think it was just the way the guests dropped. Guests were not the first thing that we thought about. Because of the nature of the way the show was produced, the thing that you’re focusing on with all your might is the news of that day. I always describe it as playing slot machines with the world. You would pull this imaginary lever and five stories would come up and that was what you had to work with. And the writers would come in at 9 and start writing, and at 1 o’clock the jokes would come in and you knew whether or not you had a show.I had been offered [a job with Craig] Kilborn and in the process of trying to decide whether I should go to “Late Late Show,” I called Jon, who was my really good friend, and said, “What do I do?” And he had said: “Well, do you like coming to work at ‘The Daily Show’ every day?” And I said: “Yes, I love it. I love everybody I work with. I love the way we interact with the world.” And he told me later that in the process of helping me to arrive at my decision, he realized it sounded like a great job.Michael J. FoxFirst guestI did his show on MTV [“The Jon Stewart Show”] and he returned the favor and did an episode of “Spin City.” When he took over [“The Daily Show”] from Kilborn he asked me to be on it, so I happily agreed. I don’t remember much about the appearance aside from being a smartass and joking that I’d been there more times than he had. I knew he was a smart, funny guy. But I had no idea the weight that he’d carry going down the line.I’ve watched the show religiously. It was the water cooler. He can have an opinion, but you always sensed an openness, like: “Convince me. Tell me I’m wrong. Show me where I’m not getting it. But I’m a smart guy and I think that I’m getting it, and I think that it smells.”
