    I just completed a 3.5 mile walk with some weight resistance. I call it mowing the lawn.

    Our groceries DO cost more but not as much more than the rest of the world. Inflation has not occurred ONLY in the United States. I would think I should not have to point that out.

    In spite of greedflation, Americans spend less of their earnings on food that other places in the world. There are places where food is cheaper. These are the places where labor is cheaper as well.

    What would your salary be if you worked the same job in Canada, eh? Especially when adjusted for taxes (although to be fair you’d have to add in your health care costs).

    I feel sorry for the people in Florida and Texas. They now have a new competitor for Joke State in the Union.

    We have a large fenced in yard – too large – our dog sniffs out thousands of square feet in his quest for the perfect spot. And all of it winds up in a 10 ft by 10 ft area.

    By the Numbers:

    You claim that the President is responsible for inflation. So let’s investigate this claim and compare Trump’s and Biden’s record on inflation on the world market.

    One way to do this is to compare exchange rates between countries. So let’s compare the United States against the European Union during the two administrations.

    When Trump left office, it took 10% MORE dollars to buy Euros than when he started. This means that the United States had an inflation rate 10% greater than the EU.

    In the THREE years, Biden has been in office, the situation has reversed. The United States is doing better than the rest of the world when it comes to inflation.

    How did Joe pull that one off?

    The name, dandelion comes to us from the French “Dent de lion” or “tooth of the lion” because of the shape of its leaves.

    According to a beekeeper friend on mine dandelions are good. They are one of the first flowers of spring and are important in the making of more bees. He recommends letting them flower but then cutting them before they go to seed.

    The whitish sap is actually latex and can be used to make rubber. I don’t know what the quality of it is as compared to a rubber tree. Obviously, it’s not economically sound to make rubber this way or someone would be doing it. Even in World War II when Japan controlled many of the rubber-producing countries in the world, the United States made artificial rubber from other materials.

    The best “organic” way of controlling dandelions and other weeds is frequent waitering and cutting of the lawn. I am careful of using fertilizers on my lawn because I live on a small lake that drains to a creek that empties into the city’s water supply. Whatever I put on my lawn I wind up drinking a week later.

    This technique is based on Darwin’s concept of “survival of the fittest.” With adequate water and frequent mowing, grass is fitter than weeds.
