    There is a great danger that people are taking refuge in magical thinking, which today takes one of four forms: the far right, the far left, religious extremism and aggressive secularism. The far right seeks a return to a golden past that never was. The far left seeks a utopian future that will never be. Religious extremists believe you can bring salvation by force. Aggressive secularists believe that if you get rid of religion there will be peace. -Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

    Sorry.
    Outside and just came in and saw this
    Plato once said, “Wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools, because they have to say something.”

    “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”


    "Fere libenter homines id quod volunt credunt." "Men willingly believe what they wish to believe."
    Julius Caesar

    "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    So, I go out this morning to dig my first batch of new potatoes. I found, as I was washing them, that something has been eating on them. Do grubs eat potatoes? This is a first for me, as we've never had success in the past with growing them.

    We dug about 1/4 of our potatoes this morning, and don't know if we will even dig the rest. It looks as if our potato crop this year is a big bust. Lots of large potatoes, but they seem to have some sort of fungus on them, with little tiny insects eating on them. I have never seen anything like it, but I'm not a skilled potato grower, either.

    Anyone have any suggestions of what may have gone wrong?
