School starts next week and so time is short, but I have a few quick thoughts to share with you before I get back to setting up class for next semester:
1. A class called Plant Production appears to be more attractive to students than a class called Nursery Management and Production — even though the concepts taught are essentially the same.
2. One of the greatest movies of all time, Caddyshack, includes a scene with milorganite. I won’t tell you which scene so that you can discover for yourself!
3. Yes, that is what I did during my vacation — watched Caddyshack.
4. The paint company Sherwin Williams used to sell insecticides in the early 1900s and late 1800s — things like lead arsinate and Paris green — and they used the same logo to advertise these insecticides that they use for their paints today — go ahead, look it up — and then tell me, if you were a PR person for a pesticide firm would you use that logo?
5. The peanuts are so close to being ripe I can almost taste them!
6. There’s nothing quite as good as eating Dunkin Donuts and scrapple for breakfast (I spent the past week in Southeast PA — my hometown — and one of the few places that you can find scrapple).
