ˆ OLD SAWS

If the evening is red and the
morning gray,
That's the sign of a bonnie
day.

If you are up for a steep
scramble, the Compton Gap
entrance to the Appalachian
Trail in Shenandoah National
Park, Wakefield, VA, will
lead you to a spectacular
display of columnar jointing,
a type of rock formation
resembling honeycomb,
which formed from basaltic
lava approximately 570
million years ago. 38.8237⁰

DUSTY POTATOES
Ingredients

September is the time to
aerate and moisten your
compost pile to speed up
decomposition.

Why do we press harder on
the remote control when we
know the batteries are going
weak?
Do French people say
"Pardon my English" when
they swear?

ˆ KITCHEN

Combine first four
ingredients. Dip potatoes
into melted butter and roll
in crumb mixture. Place in
greased, shallow pan. Bake
at 350⁰ for one hour until
potatoes are brown and
crisp. Makes 4 servings.

If you wish to save the seeds
from zinnias, cut the blooms
just as they begin to fade, tie
together at the bottom of
the stems and hang upside
down in a brown paper bag
in a cool dry space. Next
spring, the seeds will have
fallen from the blooms to the
bottom of the bag.

If the evening is gray and the
morning red,
The lamb and ewe will go
wet to bed.
If you want to know what
the weather will be, watch
pinecones. They open in
good weather and close
when storms are on the way.

To hide the damage, mix
a little instant coffee with
water and rub the paste into
scrapes and scratches on
furniture.
Vinegar removes rust and
mildew stains from most
chrome.

I don't have a solution, but I
