Greenhouse Plants

The neighbor greenhouse plant is blooming, some died and some kind of worm
is eating them, think I took care of that. The ones in the planters are looking real good 
but no bloom's yet.
 My white Pope John rose is doing better this year with good  buds that open well.
The Coleus came back after the cold winter I was surprised. 
I didn't know it was a perennial if you planted it in the flower bed.
We always had them as house plants. Never to late to learn. But to tell the truth
I may be for getting and relearning some things.

My Fortress

Can a corrupt throne be allied with you-- one that brings on misery by its decrees?
They  band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
Psalm 94: 20, 21,22

He Thanks He Found It----

Trying to get someone to drank more water is hard, because they like coke so much.
We tried bottles of water, now
we are trying this with a large glass full of ice and cool water so for it is working.
Just a squirt or two no calories no caffeine.

Have you heard the saying A boy a man but twice a boy.
our kids grew up drinking good old Kool-Aid.

I Got So Upset AND I AM GOING TO RANT (Up Date)

I don't watch much TV any more but I do like to watch Turner Classics sometime when I can't sleep
and on Saturday & Sunday the BBC. I do watch in the afternoon cable news and weather. Much to my surprise last night our cable company changed their channel lineup and took the Turner  Classics channel off  our package.
Could not get them on the phone to say any thing but do you want to pay your bill.(it is paid). So today first thing we went down to their store. We had to buy different package call Movie Package a bunch of movie channels I will not watch, to get Turner back.  $$$$$

OK I feel better now!
(The Bennie said they worked out my problem for $3.00 less then we were paying
so it didn't cost more. I now not only feel better but good.)
