Memorial Day is a very special holiday. Each of us knows someone who served in the military. On Monday, we remember all who have served. My Dad was a WWII vet serving in the South Pacific. For all who have served and all remembered, the attached is a beautiful combination of graphics and music. It was submitted to me by a wonderful gentleman who served in World War II and was a guard at the Nuremberg Trials . He was a witness to history. Enjoy.


Here is a question I have received concerning gypsy moths. I believe it is true but wonder if anyone has experience, I’d appreciate your experience.

I have been told that to prevent gypsy moths in my oak trees I should wrap the trunk of the tree with burlap and then apply grease to the burlap. Have you ever heard of this?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
