- Garden Lover - Reviews are scaring me:)I bought one and loved it so much I bought two more so they are on all three of my outdoor faucets. The first thing I did was put washers in them which they did not have. They will leak without washers in them as any hose would do. Don't know why the manufacturer didn't have washers in them. Have used them for over a week now and given away all my other heavy outdoor hoses. A friend said read the reviews. Sorry I did. I've heard they explode, leak, etc. Mine have not exploded or leaked. I don't turn on the water without the end opened which would probably be a good thing to do with such delicate hoses so the ends are not pressured. They are delicate compared to the heavy weight hoses so I think they need better care. I do like the fact that every review says they would love them if they could get them to last. They are light weight and so easy to use. Cuts down on watering time not having to fight with the hoses trying to coil them and move them around. My other hoses were extremely heavy to pick up and move around once I coiled them up. I absolutely love the pocket hoses and will be very careful with them in hopes I have better luck than most. I don't think they are made to step on, drive over with the car or drag around from faucet to faucet like the heavy duty hoses, or to leave out in the sun or winter weather. I'll keep everyone posted on my luck with them. I hope I don't have to go out and buy hoses again. I hated watering the gardens with the old heavy hoses but love it with the pocket hose.
- Rita Reader "Lea" - One awesome pad for your little one to get started on!I got this for my little Grandbaby of my heart. He loves it! His brother just got an Iphone so now this kind of evens things out. He is crazy about Monsters Inc and the University, so he is very happy with all of the Disney aspects of it. The great things are that he can personalize it and it comes with a card where he can download some games. Now, his Mom did mention she wished the eBooks were not so expensive as the hardback book, and with children's books especially you can see her point, but that was her only beef. That is a whole other story as many publishers are learning hopefully that is not the way to go. The cost of the books was the only reason this did not get a five star in that area too. This is very educational and for once Mom does feel like he is at least learning something when he uses it. And anytime you can sneak learning in on kids the fun way, everybody wins. The cover makes it very durable and not vulnerable to breakage which, lets face it comes part and partial to nine year old boys. I would highly recommend this Leapad2 to any parent. Tech stuff is here to stay and this is an ideal beginner tablet for little ones.
- Terry Anderson "Texas on the Plate" - Fabulous Book by a Texas "Pioneer"The Unlikely Lavender Queen: A Memoir of Unexpected Blossoming
The dictionary tells us that a pioneer is a person who is one of the first to do something. A pioneer may settle previously uninhabited territory, or open up new areas of thought or research.
Texas is one of those enigmatic places in America that has always attracted pioneers. Long before Anglos arrived in the area to battle, scratch, and dig it into a state, there were Spaniards explorers who came seeking gold and fountains of youth. They brought cattle and founded missions. Pioneers from the Canary Islands established early forms government in the area that is now present day San Antonio. Anglos from the Eastern U.S. began to arrive, seeking new frontiers on fresh, virgin soil. Large groups of Germans began to settle in the Hill Country regions. They left behind lives as merchants and city dwellers to tackle the rough terrain and torrid climate to become farmers and bakers and butchers. All of these people certainly fall within the definition of "pioneer."
Texas continues to attract pioneers, albeit an entirely new breed. But they still fit the definition. In the mid-70s a small but determined group of pioneers began to plant vineyards and establish wineries. They came from all over, many giving up lucrative careers in entirely unrelated fields. Many of the early wine pioneers gave up ranching on Texas lands passed down through generations of their ancestors to plant grapes. Today, the Texas wine industry is one of our biggest agricultural industries, employing thousands and producing revenue beyond the dreams of any of those early winemakers, and boasting over 200 wineries.
Fast forward to 2000 when the newest pioneer endeavor was born in Texas. Veteran photographer Robb Kendrick and his wife, Jeannie Ralston, established Hill Country Lavender on their 200 acre farm outside of Blanco, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. In her fascinating book, The Unlikely Lavender Queen, Jeannie Ralston unfolds the story of her journey from New York, where she had established herself as a successful journalist, having attained an Associate Editor position at McCall's Magazine by the age of twenty-two. She met Robb Kendrick on an assignment for Life magazine in Fort Worth and began the journey that would bring her to Texas and eventually to the rock-strewn acreage and an old stone barn that would become her home. Jeannie Ralston become a pioneer in every sense of the word.
This book is bound to have widespread appeal. First, it's the story of a woman who falls in love with an adventurer and realizes early on that her life with him will be a series of shared adventures, into which she was often dragged kicking and screaming, compromises, and drastically altered paradigms. Women will universally relate. Finding herself seven months pregnant and left to turn the barn, formerly inhabited by rattlesnakes and hay bales, into a home while Robb traveled the world on photographic assignments, Jeannie juggles trying to maintain her life as a writer, construction foreman, executioner of scorpions, and mother-to-be - all while adjusting to life in a rural small Texas town which was the antithesis of her urban, liberal background.
It was on one of his assignments to photograph the lavender industry in France that Robb formulated his newest adventure - the very lavender he was photographing. He noticed the same similarities of soil and climate conditions in Provence and the Texas Hill Country that the winemakers had discovered thirty years earlier. After researching varietals and consulting with French lavender growers, Robb planted a first experimental crop on their Hill Country farm which was successful. He then planted 10,000 lavender plants. For the first harvest in 2002, Robb was, again, off on assignment, leaving Jeannie, now the mother of two toddlers, to bring in the harvest. The book begins with a reflective Prologue beginning at the dawn of that harvest, and Jeannie's first delivery of lavender bouquets to Central Market in Austin. It was the beginning of yet another new adventure and re- re-invention of herself.
Secondly, the book will appeal to Hill Country residents - both new and long term - as a familiar chronicle of the evolution of the Hill Country into the number one tourist destination in America, fueled in great part by Jeannie Ralston's role in firmly establishing the Hill Country as a fabulous base of what is being referred to as "Agri-Tourism", bringing millions of tourists and billions of dollars to the Hill Country. By 2006, when the Kendricks sold Hill Country Lavender and moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, they had spawned an industry that covered seven Hill Country counties and established Blanco, Texas, as the center of the rapidly growing lavender industry in Texas, earning it the designation, although unofficial, as The Lavender Capital of Texas.
Read this book. It's a truly out-of-the-ordinary story of a woman's evolution to a meaningful life through a process of learning, growing, and learning to let go. I couldn't put it down. Bravo, Jeannie - and the Hill Country misses its Lavender Queen.
