My best Gardening tip

People often ask me for Gardening tips. Here’s one:

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it.
If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

If this keeps happening Gov Abbott may find himself without a job.


A weather windstorm toppled a light pole across I-45 south Dallas to Houston.
My friends were stranded in standstill traffic for over 5 hours yesterday, with
Miles and miles of cars stuck on the freeway.
As they got to Centerville and thru Huntsville they said all these towns had
NO POWER FOR Several hours. Still many areas still without power this morning.

It was HOT a yesterday and having NO power for hours is not going to go down well in
Gov Hot Wheels country.

A little joke for you....

A credit card with unlimited credit that is paid off every month.
Which one would you choose?
Mastercard or Visa?
