    Here’s What Grows in King Jesus’ Garden Msgr. Charles Pope • August 13, 2018 • Flowers, besides being beautiful, have often been used in Christian tradition to signify virtues and remind us of the saints. For example, consider this brief meditation of St. Augustine on the virtues related to our state in life:I tell you again and again, my brethren, that in the Lord’s garden are to be found not only the roses of his martyrs. In it there are also the lilies of the virgins, the ivy of wedded couples, and the violets of widows. On no account...

    Add this to the ongoing list of fun facts about the Trump family: Melania Trump has an orchid named after her. The flower is a hybrid orchid known as Rhyncholaeliocattleya Melania Trump, or "Rlc Melania Trump," and it even won an award this weekend. When you know the context, the fact that this flower exists isn't so bizarre. It was created by Chadwick & Son Orchids Inc., a company that breeds orchids and has a longstanding tradition of naming flowers after the spouses of the two leading presidential candidates during election years. The company gave both Melania Trump and Bill...

  • California flower town wrestles with odor amid shift to marijuana

    CARPINTERIA - This picturesque coastal town cradled by mountains and sandy shores is a scene out of a Southern California postcard. Residents of Carpinteria say they feel lucky to live in what they consider a slice of paradise. But change is in the air. And sometimes, they say, it stinks. That’s because marijuana has become a new crop of choice in the farmlands surrounding this tight-knit community of 14,000, which has long helped fuel the U.S. cut flower industry. Residents say a thick, skunk-like odor from the marijuana plants settles over the valley in the evenings and before dawn. To...
  • Angelita Daisies – Hymenoxys acaulis (Tetraneuris)

    Spring just arrived, some of the Mexican poppies are starting to bloom and the alyssum that had self-seeded itself under the chairs in my outdoor seating area has been blooming for some time and so have the violets. Now I see the yellow blossoms of the Angelita daisies, so pretty. Many years ago at one of our High on the Desert Gardening and Landscaping Conferences, happening this month, I bought one of these little beauties and planted it in the front of my house. My front yard is kept very natural and wild, mostly planted with native plants or desert...
  • What if Ken Starr Was Right?

    NYT ^ | 11/18/17 | Ross Douthat
    But a moment of reassessment is a good time to reassess things for yourself, so I spent this week reading about the lost world of the 1990s. I skimmed the Starr Report. I leafed through books by George Stephanopoulos and Joe Klein and Michael Isikoff. I dug into Troopergate and Whitewater and other first-term scandals. I reacquainted myself with Gennifer Flowers and Webb Hubbell, James Riady and Marc Rich. After doing all this reading, I’m not sure my reasonable middle ground is actually reasonable. It may be that the conservatives of the 1990s were simply right about Clinton, that once...
  • Clinton Brutality - the physical beating of a Lawyer and eyewitness to affair - Gary Johnson

    11/14/2017 9:46:31 PM PST · by doug from upland · 21 replies
    Here is the story of attorney Gary Johnson. He lived next door to Gennifer Flowers at the Quapaw Towers and had security camera tape of Bill Clinton entering Flowers' apartment on numerous occasions with his own key. That was at the time when Clinton was lying about the affair. Three thugs came in and took the tape. They then brutally beat him and left him for dead --- broken elbows, nasal cavity smashed in, collarbones broken, spleen and bladder ruptured. Had the tape surfaced while Clinton was denying Flowers, he would have been sent packing back to Arkansas.

    The next time there’s an event that calls for teddy bears and flowers, it would be nice instead to look for and elect leaders capable of seeing and dealing with these threats If like me, you’re sick and tired of teddy bears and flowers junking up public spaces because of yet another “man-caused disaster,” then you might be interested in the following: According to the Saturday edition of the Times of London, there are currently some “23,000 jihadist extremists” living in Britain and all are considered by The Times’ “intelligence sources” to pose a risk of violence. Some more than...

    A mild winter followed by a spate of cold weather in Washington, made its mark on the city’s cherry blossoms, but the annual festival delighted first-time visitors on Sunday. The cherry blossom trees were a gift from Japan to the United States in 1912. The cherry blossom trees currently grow in three National Park Service locations, including the Tidal Basin, Hains Point and on the Washington Monument grounds. The cold weather killed half of the blossoms on the Yoshino cherry trees just as they were reaching their peak. The National Park Service says on its website that peak bloom was...
  • Cheerios' attempt to save bees backfired massively

    Cheerios cereal brand is under fire for sending out billions of potentially disease-spreading seeds in an attempt to help save bees from extinction. The brand recently announced that it would mail out free wildflower seeds as part of its "Save the Bees" campaign. The seeds, once planted, were meant to provide more nectar for the declining bee population. As of Friday, Cheerios had sent out 1.5 billion seeds, according to General Mills, which owns the cereal brand. There's one problem with Cheerios' charitable effort, however: some of the wildflower species included in the packet of seeds can do serious...

    NEW YORK – Speaking in a series of recorded phone conversations in 1991 with his alleged mistress Gennifer Flowers, Bill Clinton can be heard telling Flowers to deny that he aided her in obtaining a state job.   “If they ever asked if you’d talked to me about it, you can say no,” Clinton can be heard saying in the audio.https://soundcloud.com/breitbart/listen-to-bill-clinton-tell-alleged-mistress-to-deny-he-got-her-state-job Clinton was referring to news media inquiries about Flowers’ alleged affair with Clinton and Flowers’ concern that the media could raise questions about how she landed her job as administrative assistant for the Arkansas Appeal Tribunal. Clinton can also...

    In a rare exclusive interview, Gennifer Flowers, who says she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, opened up about what she described as the experience of having an abortion after she says she found out she was pregnant with Clinton’s child. Flowers stated that Clinton personally paid $200 for the abortion in 1977, and she revealed that she was made aware that Hillary Clinton knew that same year about the alleged affair, which Flowers says continued another eleven years or so.

    Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence said Sunday that Gennifer Flowers will not attend the first presidential debate and that Donald Trump floated the idea to “mock” Clinton campaign efforts to district voters by “playing games with front row seats.” The uproar about inviting Flowers, the woman with whom Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, had a sexual encounter, started last week. Dallas Mavericks owner and outspoken Trump critic Mark Cuban on Thursday tweeted: "Just got a front row seat to watch @HillaryClinton overwhelm @realDonaldTrump.” A Clinton aide later told CNN that the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign had indeed invited...

    WATCH starting about 36:10. While Bill Clinton was denying affair with Gennifer Flowers, her next door neighbor, attorney Gary Johnson, had security camera video showing Clinton entering her condo WITH HIS OWN KEY. Three thugs were sent to get the evidence and destroy it. They got the table and then broke Johnson's collarbone and elbow, smashed in his nasal cavity, punctured his bladder and spleen and left him for dead. He survived and is shown on this tape telling his story. I am good friends with the filmmaker. Mainstream media refused to talk about this. It should have ended the...
