  • Humans can't follow rules, which is why God gave us 10

    I’m a recovering helicopter parent, having spent countless hours and huge amounts of energy hovering over my kids, trying to turn them into mini versions of myself.
    Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, neither daughter is exactly like me, although they have both inherited the need for a “Do not touch” linen closet — shelves of carefully arranged towels and linens that are not to be touched. Ever.

    Common chickweed, henbit, and purple deadnettle are cool-season weeds we usually see in crop fields during the fall and winter.
    How-ever, other weeds, such as dandelions, have become more prevalent in recent years, according to J. D. Green, an Extension weed specialist at the University of Kentucky.
    Dandelions are generally considered a major lawn or pasture weed, but increasingly have been found in grain-crop fields.
