Though members of Congress avoided pushing the United States over a temporary fiscal cliff, they did virtually nothing to solve the long-term financial problems facing this nation. So when you see them on television talking about how much they accomplished over the New Year's holiday, you can dismiss that as just another blast of hot air. President Obama and members of Congress made no difficult decisions.
This past Sunday, I walked into my neighbor's house and was met by a wave of burgundy, gold and white. I quickly wondered how I could hide the obnoxious blue and white scarf I was wearing. Where were the other Dallas fans, I thought. And then from across the room, I spotted a lone comrade donning the Cowboys jersey. Two fans are always better than one.

Despite our best efforts at proper planting and maintenance, two of the live oaks at the Town Green will be replaced in the coming days/week. The live oaks have been in decline for some time due to a variety of reasons but it basically boils down to transplant shock. This shock is due to a large percentage (up to 90 percent) of the trees' root system remaining at the nursery when the tree is dug. Transplant shock occurs to all field-grown trees which are dug from a nursery and planted in a new site.
You may be surprised to learn people sometimes disagree with me. You may be equally surprised I sometimes see their point in the disagreement. Sometimes I agree with the disagreement.
