The sun is shining and there

The sun is shining and there is a light breeze.  I feel as though my existence has been "containerized" and it has to some degree.  But it could be worse.  Turn off that damn TV.  It is an endless drone of negative stimulus.  Just pulling weeds in the yard and trimming some trees broke the cycle of TV.  It does make a difference.  Trust me.

Iwent to the grocery store today, yes I wore a mask, and it had alot of people in it,  I was surprised but it's a nice day, the Sun is shining andpeople NEED to get  out. MOST people were following directions and keeping their distance the grocery store didn't  help that only SOME aisles anda greenarrowora red X on them on BOTH ENDS, meaning you go down one aisle the right way and then there's nothing  to tell you which way to go on the next aise until you get to the far end and found out you went the wrong way!!  They seemed to be very random on which aisles went which way, sometimes it was two side by side aisles going the same way and sometimes it was side by two side aisles going in opposite directions.

I agree long ago the News changed from just providing the News as it happened to people who do nothing more than read a teleprompter of the hilites and then drone on endlessly giving their opinion of what WE should think and do about what they just read!! As if WE THE PEOPLE need someone with an agenda reminding  us of their agenda for each and  every snippet of News they give us. The days of thinking the People have a brain and can make up their own  minds is over and then the VERY SAME people complain about millenials, and some World Leaders, who have zero trust in the News or empathy for others!!! Stop telling us what to think and how to react and go back to making us use our brains again!!!

Was out cutting the grass

Was out cutting the grass yesterday when my head became entangled in a couple of branches on my Lychee tees.  I looked up and was surprised to notice how much fruit had developed.  If you have never tried Lychee you owe it to yourself to try it.  It truly is an amazing fruit.  I first encountered it while travelling in China on business.  Oh, and just in case you are interested my head is doing fine.

Sounds interesting but it can only grow as a patio tree in my area and that's more work than I want to add to my routine.

I put these trees in the ground about 8 years ago and they are enormous.  The have a trunk about 8 inches.  I don't see how you could grow them as a patio tree (container tree ??).  Some asian stores here sell the fruit for around $7.00 lb.  Not a bad price especially if you have a small orchard of these trees.
