Julion's Crowe Fomily Attends Tea Party Amber and Hailey Crowe, along with mom and dad, Suzanne and Tracy Crowe all recently attended the first San Diego Tea Party. No they didn't serve tea and crumpets, this was a tax revolt rally held downtown San Diego by the Star of India at which protesters held signs protesting the Federal Omnibus bill (otherwise known as the "Bailout" bill) and the state budget. The organizers shredded copies of both of them, put them into makeshift "tea bags" and dumped them into the water (they tethered them so that they could pule them back out so that the water was not polluted) in a symbolic gesture of revolt reminiscent of the Boston Tea Party all those years ago. Both young women wanted to go to show their support for the revolt as they realize that they are going to be the ones paying for these taxes the rest of their lives and they wanted to be a part of history in the making. There were close to 500 people in attendance, just average citizens fed up with all the taxes. Tea Parties throughout the country continue to be held as more and more people are choosing to voice their opinion. The next scheduled Tea Party in San Diego will be held April 11 at 11:00 a.m. at the Spanish Landing across from the airport, there is also one scheduled for April 15 in the evening at the downtown Post Office as people are dropping off their taxes at the last minute. This is designed to capitalize on the regular media coverage that this event gets. .... My Thoughts by Michele Harvey It Feels Like Spring Again No matter how many fires, windstorms or late snowfalls we have; spring always shows up again with an abundance of green leaf buds and bright colored flowers. Recently the weather here has been so mild that it really feels like spring. Cool mornings, warm afternoons and crispy cold evenings are my idea of great spring days. Mornings before I go to my shop I get some yard work done because I like the cool air, the sun on my shoulders and it's easy to dig into the earth that is still damp from the last rain. Not many weeks from now our dirt will revert to "rock hard" and a high quality pick or shovel won't penetrate " into the unworked soil. This week I'm filling in potholes in our back driveway. We call it the back driveway because it's at the other end of our property from our house. Most of our driveway is covered with concrete or asphalt, but the back driveway is dirt with some gravel. It has high spots and low spots that need to be blended. I'm digging out an embankment near our barn where I want to widen the flat area at the bottom of the embankment, then lay down rocks on the new embankment. We have lots of rocks just lying around our property that make mowing a real challenge. Collecting the rocks to hold back embankments will get the rocks out of the way and they will make attractive and useful walls. The area at the top of the embankment was used by previous owners to store used scrap wood. Lots of the wood laid there for years, long enough to rot, and most of it is full of nails. I dig out enough dirt to shape my embankment the way I want it, wheelbarrow the dirt on to the driveway, then find rocks to build a new retaining wall where none existed before. As I build the new rock walls, I'll rake the debris to fill in behind the walls, using it for filler, and put the splinters and nails where they won't harm any human or animal feet. I like the cleanup projects that spring brings. We own a bit over three acres and we can always find ways to clean up our land. We don't always have time each year to do the necessary work, but it never goes away. The work just seems to wait patiently for us. A few weeks ago my son Robert and I had a day off together. Some of our out buildings burned in the Cedar Fire in 2003 and we used our day off together to finally finish cleaning out the shells of these buildings. Now I like to walk by them and through them, seeing how clean they look before next autumns winds fill them with fallen leaves. Building retaining walls with rocks and old pieces of concrete that I find around our property is one way of cleaning up our property. I take rocks and concrete chunks that are in the way and place them where they can be useful. They hold back the dirt and keep us from having mud slides. Another project I'm working on is digging up and replanting my bearded irises. We have a bed of irises that don't bloom because the dirt under them is too hard for them to set out good root systems and through the years the winds have blown too much dirt on top of their rhizomes. The rhizomes are the part of the plant connected to the base of the leaves that look a little like raw yams. The rhizomes like to sit just below the top of the soil. Bearded irises like good drainage and full sun in cool climates, and some shade in the hottest parts of the yard. Last year we dug up a large bed of rosemary. I plan to make a walkway where the rosemary was, and the dirt there is really good for planting. I'll take out the rich dirt and move it to the iris bed, giving the irises much better drainage and richer soil to live in. Then I'll build my walkway without putting it on the rich soil. My spring projects always seernto have several steps to them. I don't just think of one thing to do. Instead I combine projec , That way I feel like I'm accomplishing even more. I don't have time to get much done each year, so I like projects that improve several areas of my yard at the same time. Spring, with its great weather is the best time for me to get yard projects done. I have all winter to think about them, and actually getting outside in our great weather makes me feel good physically and mentally. These are my thoughts.
