    I hated the book. There, I said it! Just could not like it, no matter how many times I taught it. Sigh. I'm a bad English teacher. Bad. Movie holds no interest for me. I'll teach Old Man and...

    Yup, one of my Buff Orps is a she-man; the transgender leader of the gang. Stands watch, pushes the working girls around, sorta-crows. So, yeah, totally Ceylon Star, Coop Edition! Woot!

    I mow while mine are in the fields with me! I don't wait, but others might have reasons for doing so. As long as the weeds aren't toxic, I can't see a point to waiting.
