Coincidences abound in this fantastical take on the meteoric rise of Elton John despite his many personal struggles. Director Dexter Fletcher recently stepped in to finish “Bohemian Rhapsody,” for which Rami Malek just won the Oscar for his portrayal of another flamboyant rocker, Freddie Mercury.

Flashback to the year 1998. Many were listening to the likes of Shania Twain, LeAnn Rimes, Third Eye Blind, Marcy Playground, Chumbawamba, ‘N Sync, The Verve, 98 Degrees, just to name a few.

I gravitated more towards Master P, K-Ci & JoJo and Big Pun. Then I so thankfully stumbled upon DMX. I wasn’t big into East Coast rap, but X was different and his debut record set the blueprint for me to be an honorary member of the Ruff Ryders.

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.
