  1. ALWAYS too early. Always. It happens every year. Mother’s Day is my yardstick for tomatoes and peppers. .
  2. I heard it’s cold and snowy at home. .
  3. Price we pay for the modern conveniences we love. [emoji2371] .
  4. This should be the motto of this forum. .
  5. Socialist industrialist economies haven’t been too kind to the planet either, sooo… [emoji2371] .

I think the main argument you could have is whether you want capitalism with a strong welfare state or a weak welfare state.

  9. I sense a business opportunity for you. I’m investing in some funds that push towards that, so why not profit while trying to make a more stable climate? .
  10. Correct. He plays Fall Ball and it’s much more pleasant, since September and October are historically the driest times of year here. .
  11. Eh, of course we love snow, but even my sixth grader doesn’t want another snow day and doesn’t want his baseball fields muddied up. We’re getting into that time of winter for a very wet snow that melts into a field soaking mess. .
  12. Dude, sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you. I live here, too, and we got hammered last year. You’re not going win them all. .
