No plants equals no life. Humans can­not breathe, eat, nor drink without culti­vating plants. The earliest gardens were grown in ancient Egypt for those needing rest in the shade under trees. Persians, Greeks, Romans – who many said they introduced cabbages – and even those in the Middle Ages grew gardens for medic­inal herbs, vegetables, orchards and vineyards. Fast forward to 2019.

Daily gardening chores like watering, weeding, trellising, mulching and har­vesting are fantastic ways to exercise.

Giddy would be an understatement. I remember buying Cypress Hill’s self-titled debut album in 1991 on cassette tape and playing it to all my classmates in high school.

Songs like “How I Could Just Kill a Man,” “Hand on the Pump/Real Estate,” “The Phunky Feel One” and my personal favorite from the album, “Latin Lingo.” I was the guy in my class who other students would come to and ask for new music, but this time, it was different. I was the first to introduce Cypress Hill to my entire school. Probably a lie, but I told myself I was.

At the turn of the century several members of our congress proposed that we do away with the patent office.  Can you only imagine what has been invented since that time? The non-forward looking members of Congress with no vision decided that everything worthwhile had already been invented; therefore, there was no need to keep the patent office open.  It is easy to make a list of things we use daily that are a result of scientific research done to put a man on the moon.
