  • You have probably never heard of Joseph Priestley. If you have ever made a mistake in writing, you owe him a bit of thanks because he is the man who invented the eraser. 

    Priestley lived in the 1700s in England and was the son of a minister. As an adult, he came to America and was, for a time, a Unitarian minister.  He seemed more interested in chemistry than theology, however, and the invention of the eraser came to Priestley when he studied the sap of a South American tree newly introduced to Europe.

  • Now that it is spring, I have started thinking about gardening. It has been such a long time since we last put in a garden, and I cannot wait to get one going where we live now. 

    The ground was plowed a few days ago, so I know we are going to do it. We are planning ways to deter the deer, and I have also been told I must also try to repel the raccoons, possums, squirrels and whatever other critters there may be out there.
