Just for laughs...

A fellow named Art walks up to another man in a local supermarket and demands that they guy give him a buck.

"Forget it you bum" says the guy, but as he tries to walk away Art puts his hands around around the guys neck and strangles him to death.

Formal Beds in Late Summer

"Thanks Joan. Lorraine, yes, I really wish the growing season was a bit longer. I will have to google "viscaria" -- I'm not familiar with them. I agree that potato vines are rather vigorous and can take over a planter. That's why…"
