All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Pre-Garden Time

The Gurneys seed order showed up yesterday. So its time to get the plants started inside. This year we’re going to grow our own tomatoes from seed again. They did better than the ones we bought from the local greenhouse. We’ll be growing the broccoli from seed again too.

Mrs Ipsa loves beets. This year she wants to try a new kind. This seems like foolishness to me. Every year that we’ve been married that she tries any variety other than Detroit Reds, she is invariably disappointed. This year we’re experimenting with Forono beets. We’ll see how she likes them.

The arrival of the Gurneys order brought to light an unfortunate over sight of someone in the Ipsa household. Apparently someone forgot to place the Johnny’s order, after it had been carefully prepared. You will be glad to know that starting tonight, I am being allowed to sleep inside again.

How are your garden plans and seedlings coming?
