Strawberry Fields Forever

by jennifer

The sky was looking iffy yesterday morning, but the girls and I headed out to the strawberry patch anyway, almost daring the clouds to rain on us.

They did not.

Chilly and overcast, the conditions turned out to be perfect for picking and photography. Within 30 minutes we had plucked 14 pounds of juicy berries from our assigned row in the field and were ready to move on to the ice cream stand and petting zoo.

Watching my daughters running down the straw-covered pathways with berrry-smeared faces, I imagined that I’d really enjoy being a strawberry farmer. What fun to tend to a place for families to visit and children to learn where strawberry jam comes from. It was a good day.

Did you make your jam yet? We used Pomona’s Universal Pectin this year. It requires less sugar to jell than some other brands, but that’s not why I bought it. I really like the artwork on the box. (I know.)

Turns out this was a good move. The jam tastes good and the girls love it, too.

Francesa is a pompous jerk who purports to know everything when it comes to sports. His opinion is always right, so don’t disagree with him! Even when he gets something wrong (as he OFTEN does), he’ll spin his way out of his mistake.

AMT has nothing to do with mortgage interest. AMT can limit your ability to deduct property taxes. The mortgage interest deduction is far more valuable at higher tax rates than lower tax rates. The property tax deduction is far more valuable at lower tax rates.

I know a family that has a special needs child who is still in diapers at age 10 years old. Because of his deficits, he messes up a lot of clothes. His sister/guardian has a washing machine but no dryer. She has a clothes line but neighbors’ trees prevent sun from shining on the clothes line which makes it even more difficult to get the clothes dried and keep up with the laundry. My Christmas wish is that this family be blessed with a working clothes dryer. Thank you for careing. Janice

Interesting how businesses want to defend monopolistic practices.Yet, turn it around and unionize workers or prevent businesses from leaving the country to find workers who can live on lower wages and look what happens.I won't even get into how the monopolies or monopoly (depending on your perspective) that comprise our 2 valid political parties fail to meet the needs of the citizens of this country.

What the Liberals can’t stomach is that Conservatives have become much better at Oppo. tactics than they were/are. Why? Gee, could they have read Kinsella’s books? Could be. I’m really glad to see that the CPC Oppo. team was so quick off the mark on this.

You attempt to love them and they repeatedly are rude, disrespectful, and hurtfulAnd they are aware of what they are doing and do not wish to change?Divorce in my opinion of biblical scripture is not an option for loving one’s wife/husband is a commandHow is this reconciled? Does God reconcile this or is it because the person chose their spouse this is the situation that they will have to deal with?I think often about Hosea and GomerWhat is scripture regarding this manner?

Posted on December 24, 2012 at 10:09 amThe root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not really work very well with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being amazed.
