Feeling Good!

I think I am over the election of Trump. If I ignore him, maybe he will go away…

Yesterday I began in earnest to plant some seeds for the spring. I’ve been stratifying some seeds in the refrigerator. Fortunately, TLW is short and can’t see all that’s on that top shelf… I also began the stratification of some seeds that I will plant directly in the ground in the spring like grapes. Others, like Saskatoons, are already in the ground outdoors.

I was surprised to find a plum pit had already sprouted in the refrigerator as had some Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestris). The package for the pine definitely states 90 days cold moist stratification but other sources say 60… I hope the little darlings haven’t rotted or passed their best-before date.

Some Sea Buckthorn seeds seemed content to wait quietly in the refrigerator. I put them all in pots under lights in my basement. I’ll bring them up to our sunniest room when they need more light and warmer temperatures. Last year, I over-wintered a bunch of lilac seedlings there. One that suffered greatly when brought outside is back in the dining room and thriving. It just wasn’t quite ready last spring.

I also contacted my broker and elected to double my annuity payment from last year. Now, I’ll be able to afford my new red electric car. If things go as planned, I should be able to double the payments again next year. 😎 2017 is going to be a great year, despite Trump.

    Then why are you here?

    I agree Trump is great. He’s the greatest liar I’ve ever encountered. Really. Most humans lie from time to time to avoid some unpleasantness. A few criminals tell a lot of truth so that some key lie might be believed. Trump is special. He lies almost all the time and repeats each lie endlessly as if polishing a gem. He never admits he’s lied or was mistaken even when a child can see that he lied. It’s just amazing.

    At the same time he pumps up some simple concept as if it were the key to saving humanity, like The Wall, deportation, repealing ObamaCare, actually using nukes at the bargaining tables, confusing allies and enemies because unpredictability is defined to be “good”… Trump is just off-scale in his misuse of people, technology, propaganda,… whatever. I understand Goebbels was a propagandist and that the old USSR did that too but Trump has done more harm ideologically in a year than some really bad regimes did in decades. I would not be surprised if it turns out that Trump was the biggest double agent of the rekindled cold war by far. How would it be possible to soil the reputation of USA, it’s politics, it’s constitution, it’s Free Press all at once and to such a degree? No one else has even imagined such a crime against USA yet he’s done it. He’s the Greatest… [SARCASM!!!]

  2. You don’t live in the United States. No one cares what you think about the greatest US President of the 21st Century.
