Questions & Answers


For the posing of questions on any topic

"Everyone Does It."

The classical remark which gets parents to explain right and wrong to their child.

But how often do adults make this remark in board rooms and business meetings? Have you ever been in a situation where "everyone does it" was the justification for questionable conduct, and if so how did you respond?

Sick Rose Bush

I have been growing Knockout roses with good success. The are hybrids, developed for hardiness so that even a bumbling gardener like me can't harm them.

Last year someone gave me a fancy rose bush -- I think it is called a Tiffany. It produced beautiful roses, but only about 2 of them. This year, the leaves are turning yellow, and the plant looks sick.

Did Anyone Get Pictures of the Heifer Parade Couple, The Fly and The Naturalist With His Net ?

This year in the Heifer Parade, my wife Cynthia was a scatophagid fly, stopping at each cow pile, and I was a naturalist with my entomologist net. We know many people took photos, but wonder if anyone who snapped a shot of us might post one here, so we could see it.

Thanks,

Rolf
