I am not sure who wrote the above, it was sent to me by a friend George M, but I do want to give credit to someone. Dad.
.This above is the weather forecast for East Tennessee. You can also get your own local weather by typing in your zip code. This reports changes as the day goes on so the report you get is always current. At 3 A.M. the temperature is 42 degrees. And we do have hopes of warmer later today, We are supposed to have a high of above 50 today. I always look at our weather first thing in the morning this season of the year it is important to us , It is looking like that we are going to have some better weather for a while. Some nice spring like weather will help us all. DAD

We had a little scare yesterday morning, we thought that we had lost the EAGLES, but no they are still here.

Preventing Late Blight
By Vanessa Richins.

Last year was a sad year in the tomato world, wasn’t it?
It felt like every other word I read on gardening sites mentioned “blight.”
Rain, an influx of new gardeners (which meant a larger chance for spreading), infected plants sold at retail chains and other conditions meant many tomato plants fell prey to late blight.
Next year can be better, though, if we all take steps to manage the disease.
The fungus needs a host that is living, so it will die on tomato plants left over the winter. It’s best to clean them all out, though, to help prevent any of the other diseases.
When you’re ready to plant again in the spring, I would suggest

It is time to turn our thoughts toward Spring! I love thinking about new life and things growing and green once more. I'll be welcoming a new grandchild to the family this Spring too so that is a wonderful thing. Just heard yesterday that there will be another new one come the fall too! That will be 14 for me now.

Good Morning DAD...

Stopping by for some Starbucks and for some good advise "Be kind and gentle today". The flowers on the Burpee site are so beautiful. I thought I might see some flowers in bloom in Florida but they must have been adversely affected by the cold spell.

I am writing from the library this morning and it was a delightful walk to get here. I so enjoyed the warmth and fresh air...makes me want to go out for a long walk this afternoon.

I went to the Space Station site and watching it reminded me of the 3D movie I just took my 7 year old grandson to see "Fly Me To The Moon". I recommend it to families if it is playing nearby. The children will love it and they will get to learn about the Apollo 11 mission.

Hope all went well for you at the doctor's office this morning. ...Sara's Mom

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

Best wishes on your doctor's appointment, Dad -- hope it went well and that you had safe journeys there and home. Hope you and Ms. Mary are staying warm, enjoying the beautiful winter there. Those dunlin photos your friend took are gorgeous -- what fat little birds! They must have a lot of insulation ;)

The tomato blight sounds terrible if it's anything like the Irish potato blight! Oh my gosh, I hope they can arrest it, because we need our tomatoes...the tinned ones will do in a pinch, but we like our fresh ones, don't we?

Love from Jamaka and fams, thankful for rain at last
