Loser

The LanCoVa Supervisors voted unanimously to grant a special exception for an industrial use (marine construction) in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I am dumbstruck, in search of a land use guru who can explain how this action was anything other than arbitrary and capricious given the existing Lancaster County zoning code.

Tilly is 2+. At an age where she can learn Zen dog skills, stillness, watchfulness.

Lassie would observe. At the moment when someone fell off a ladder, required assistance, she’d put on the tourniquet, apply compression.
Tilly has yet to acquire the full package of EMT skills but she is understanding the quiet observation piece.
She finds a spot in the shade, smells and listens to the wind. Watches. Waits.

tree tubes

When Tilly was 10 weeks old she hung out while I planted 41 tulip trees in tubes.
Two years later all those trees have survived. Some have thrived, others are only slightly larger than when they were planted. Same weather, same soil, same source. What is the variable that accounts for the difference?
Tree tubes are not magic. Maintenance is required.
