   Linder posted on Gardening & Landscaping  We are enjoying our first green beans and small potatoes from the garden. I'm always surprised at the taste of fresh from the garden produce.

   Linder  Woke to a nice shower here in southern Iowa and appreciate every drop of rain. Have cut back on flowers this year with only two pots mixed with white geranium, white petunias and German ivy and a raised bed of the lowly zinnia.

   StormCnter  Lucky you, Linder. I love green beans (snap beans in Texas ) and new potatoes. As for your cutting back on the flowers, I found that caring for the many inside and outside pots of flora were requiring more of my time than if I ran a daycare center. I, too, cut it all back to just the few I can keep watered and trimmed without dedicating my life to it.

   Linder  Well, that was fun. Just finished pressure canning 7 pints of green beans. Haven't done that for several years and felt like a first time learner. Can't wait to do it again. Listening to the jars ping...4 to go.

   Linder posted on Blessings  I got to see the peonies bloom another time....as I turn 73 this summer I'm beginning to realize I won't be here forever....and finding greater appreciation of things taken for granted. Peonies may be my favorite flower....so gorgeous!

   Linder posted on Main Page The Lobby  Watching the reading of names of the 9/11 victims. Remembering the attack on our country seems personally more acute this year. Tried to watch the President speak but his delivery seemed as rote as reading a grocery list. Then heard Hillary may have suffered a health episode and was whisked away from the memorial site. I don't wish her ill...but they should be honest with us if she isn't well. The American people are accepting of the truth.... Feeling unsettled this morning.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Indulge me in a little whine....I agreed to sit on the primary election board and that means I go for training tomorrow afternoon and spend Tuesday from 7am until 9pm at the election site. Even tho I don't like to give up my time I know it's important to participate in government.

   Alice  Thanks for doing it :- ) I hope you and the others on the board plan tasty refreshments for election day, too! You'll likely need them. Even if you only drink water, it needs to be good for a long day like that. I hope all goes smoothly for your state and the other 4.

   StormCnter  I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to help with our local elections, sometimes as judge and sometimes just one of the worker bees, but it's a treat and accomplishes something at the same time.

   Linder posted on Gardening & Landscaping  We are enjoying Swiss Chard and lettuce from the garden. Season the chard with bacon and onions...serve with vinegar. So good. Love this month of Spring. Mornings are perfection.

   BirdsNest  Sorry. Tried to add a couple of ideas for cooking chard. Cell phone not co-operating.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Just home from the Iowa GOP Convention. What a great day. Iowa Republicans definitely showed our appreciation for our Senators Charles Grassley and Joni Ernst, our longest serving Governor in the U.S., Gov. Branstad and our 3 (out of 4 ) District Congressmen. So many standing O's. I've been a delegate to these conventions for the past 40 years and enthusiasm was as high today as I've ever seen it. Heard nothing but assurances of support for Donal Trump. What a great day!

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Getting ready to leave early in the morning for District Republican Convention. Sitting on the rules committee and we will meet early to consider proposing a common sense rule change to expedite choosing delegates to the National Convention. The first time I was a county delegate to district and state conventions was the year Reagan challenged Pres. Ford and it was great fun...the last time that every delegate mattered and was wooed. Have been a delegate to many uneventful conventions since and it looks like another fun one is happening. I'm looking forward to it.

   Linder posted on Blessings  A few weeks ago I signed on to say that my little 102 yr old mother had died and remarked that sometime I wanted to tell you about her. One story that I heard for the first time at her funeral. One night in the late 30's a neighbor man came to my mother's door and said his wife had just had a baby and he needed for her to come and look after her. Mother found the dying young mother hemorrhaging so badly that blood was running on the floor. There was no nearby doctor or hospital....few people had telephones or cars. My older sisters knew of this story but what they didn't know was that many years later the oldest daughter in that poor family came to Mother's nursing home room to thank her for the dress she wore to her mother's funeral. Mother realized that the daughter didn't have a nice dress to wear to her mother's funeral and so she made a dress, claimed she had made it for herself but it was too small and asked the girl to try it on. That girl...then in her 80's...had come to thank Mother and tell her that she was an adult before she realized the dress had been made just for her and to tell Mother that she loved her for that. There were so many more stories of her kindness and her accomplishments but that is my favorite. More than one person told me later that Mother's funeral service was the nicest they had ever heard...and I have to agree. I'd like to tell you more about my mother another time.

   BirdsNest  Linder, you had a wonderful mother. And that means you must have many of her traits. Thank you for the story, we will wait for more.

   Kono  I guess it's been awhile since we've felt blessed, or at least since anybody's come here to share a blessing.

Thank you, Linder, for sharing that story. I feel blessed for having read it, and for the Holy Spirit giving me an odd nudge to come here and dwell on blessings, on a day of worry (tomorrow we choose a new President, and both candidates inspire a mixture of hate and anxiety ).

May God bless you and have mercy on us all.

   Linder posted on Main Page The Lobby  My little mother passed away this morning. She lived 102 years, 6 months, and 27 remarkable days. Sometime, I would like to tell you about her.

   BirdsNest  Linder, you have mentioned her in the past, your devotion to her speaks volumes. She had a long time to be with you, now she has to be with God. It's rugged losing loved ones. Be at peace, she most certainly is.

   StormCnter  Linder, I am so sad for you. As the others said, you were so fortunate to have had her for so much of your life. I am envious. My mother died when she was only 56 and I was 33. I have missed her daily. You are obviously a loving and caring daughter and your mother was also a lucky woman to have had you in her own life.
God bless you and comfort you and your family in your loss.

   MeiDei  So very sorry for your loss. How wonderful for you that you had her so long. When you're ready to write about her we'll be right here to read it. God's peace be with you.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Getting very close to Caucus time and am still able to be polite to polling callers. Have never had sooo many calls and I answer every one...reminding myself how lucky I am to live in this country. Most today are from Cruz, Rubio and Paul and are not polling questions but rather asking directly for support. The forecast of a big snow storm coming our way Monday eve. may put a new wrinkle in things. And then we'll be happy to send the process on to New Hampshire.

   Balogreene  Linder, living in Northern VA after the 30 inches of snow that fell, and all the people from the midwest who told us to just get over it, a big snowstorm won't affect you, right?

I know how I would vote if I were you, but, it comes down to who I want, and who might win the election. I'm hoping, right now, who one wants is more important.

VA has moved it's primary up to March (Super Tuesday? ), I'm hoping this time the front-runner won't already be decided. I hope I can have a voice. But, I am ready to vote Republican, no matter what.

The people recommending Bush, Kasich, Carson, Florin, etc are crazy, they don't have a snowball's chance in H. But, there are some others I hope don't get any votes.

   Balogreene  Man, this spell-check is awful! I meant Fiorina. I kind of like her, but, she is going nowhere. I also love Santorum, always have, but, no one else does.
