After the cold spell we had here (10 days -- imagine what they must feel like in Buffalo, NY), the weather this week has been nice. However, it has reminded me that spring is nearly here. The clover and weeds in my yard are coming out. I have yet to find a pre-emerge or weed killer that will take care of them.
So, it won't be long before I'll be fertilizing, weeding, mowing and edging again. I have always loved yard work. However, it seems like I don't have as much free time to "putter" in the yard as I used to. I don't really understand that. I used to coach the kids' teams, was involved in Boy Scouts, etc. -- and still had plenty of time to keep a nice yard. Now that my kids are gone, it seems like I have less time. I need a time expert to explain that one to me.
Being that we just celebrated Presidents' Day, I have been thinking about presidents this week. I love history -- and especially enjoy The History Channel's series on them. Who, in your opinion, were the best and the worst presidents?
For me: Abraham Lincoln would be the best. No president has had to hold together a fractured nation like he did.
The worst? Probably one of the presidents in the mid-1800s: Filmore, Pierce.
