|Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
|Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
|Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still
|You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of
yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
(Laurence J. Peter)
|Friends are family you choose for yourself.|

This month's notable observation is that the corn I planted many weeks ago turned out to be not only edible, but also sweet and absolutely delicious. I am amazed at this achievement, which was a total random event. I am not a gardener, I just put the seeds in the seedling tray, then transfered the young plants to the garden bed, and they grew and I was lucky enough they ripened up before the cold winter came. Now, the important point is that the freshly picked corn is nothing like the corn one buys in ths shops or markets. It is sweet and not starchy at all. The plant needs some sun (those corn plants that I planted by the fence did not so as well as the ones I planted in the sunny spot near the pond).
