A collection of interesting items I found in my daily reading.
- Giveaway: THREE Great Gardening Books! – May 11, 2011
- Career Rule #1 – "I Don't Do That" – May 11, 2011 – Rule #1 in this list is so, so important. (Don’t do something that you don’t do) I have had to be careful over the years and I haven’t always abided by the rule — much to my detriment. You’d be well advised to know when to say you don’t do something and stick with it.

- LeafSnap: Instantly Identify Trees By Their Leaves – May 6, 2011 – The app had some problems with the first leaves I threw at it, but that could have been my technique in photographing the. I will play around with it a bit more and see what it can do.
- Bath and Sally Lunn – May 6, 2011 – We were in Bath last June (2010) and, indeed, had a Sally Lunn bun with our dinner. Bath is a fascinating place to visit and we would love to return some time.
- How To Plant, Grow, & Prune Blueberries – May 6, 2011
- Sweet Tea Bourbon Cocktails – May 6, 2011 – Like the author, I too like the smoky, woody taste of a good bourbon and find it particularly refreshing in summer cocktails. This one sounds like a winner. Almost a Kentucky version of a Spanish sangria, I think.
- How Much Soil Amendment Do You Need? – May 4, 2011 – The linked video is a great example and explanation of how much (or how little) a bag of soil of mulch will actually cover in your garden beds.
- Talkatone Calls And SMS Over Wifi For Free – May 4, 2011 – I am going to give this a try when we are on our trip to Sicily in August. I still need to be connected via Wifi, but it would make it much easier to stay in touch while we are there.
