    Oh, Pippa, I’m so glad you are still lurking. H.B. always remembers to includes you which is nice.

    I love Spring too ! The only thing in bud here is one crab tree, a weeping cherry , & , a few pieris japonica . I have a drift of plain white & white with pink trumpets daffodils starting to bloom . They are late blooming. All the neighbors yellow have been in bloom for weeks . Our roses are just leafing now. My husband scrubbed the fence & arbor today. I don’t know why he didn’t power wash it. Azaleas & rhododendron aren’t even in bud yet. I We have redbud, crabs, a lot of dogwoods that will bloom before the summer shrubs.

    The only flowers I faithfully order every year is ‘Indigo Spires’ salvia, That is because they are hummingbird magnets & bloom from early May until a hard frost. They are perennials but not hardy in my zone 6. The flower wands are about 3 feet in length.

    Thanks ! I wasn’t familiar with Cottage Farms . I love their Shockwave Petunia ‘Denim’ It would look great next to yellow flowers . I always ordered from Bluestone Perennials . Now I have another place to spend my online time.


    Have a nice evening everyone !

    Would Obama do that.

    Cyprus bailout

    The euro weakened against the dollar and the Swiss franc after euro-area finance ministers agreed to an unprecedented tax on Cypriot bank deposits as part of a rescue plan for the country.

    Europe’s 17-nation shared currency slid 1.1 percent to $1.2932 at 6:26 p.m.

  • Mike W

    There was an interesting article in Saturday/Sunday edition of the WSJ on the EC (European Commission). I believe this article came out prior to the announcement regarding Cyprus. The gist of the article was that the EC has a lot of power regarding economic decisions in the EuroZone but there is a lack of expertise in their ranks.

  • Faith3

    What does price point have to do with the price of tea in China? That is so far off topic that the whole point of the discussion has gotten lost. Then pile on partisan points which has nothing to do with the issue. “The amount of money athletes and actors get paid effects everyone in the company they are working for” is false pretense and equally far off topic. To make the comparison an actor is the same to an employee as a CEO is to an employee is both false and not a logical point to the debate because it is not a logical comparison.

    Also, it is easy to research that Walmart is the #2 top seller in its type industry. The next in line would be Target which is #38, yet you want to make some kind of apple to orange comparison on productivity to pay when comparing these two companies. Not worth the time to argue as its not worth the time to argue a contrived point that athletes and actors have the same connection to employees as the CEO of a company to employees (which is not at all a logical comparison)so we will just try and connect them to other people’s pay in indirect ways because hey why not? The argument needs to be logical in nature otherwise it’s a waste of time and effort.

  • Jeff

    The children at DB’s Sunday Bible school class must of been shooting spit wads at the back of his head again.

    Are you still making silly online bets with people?? Loser!

  • Jeff

    @Faith3. You can never get your valuable time back by debating people who do not deal with facts.

  • Cathy

    Jeff, I gave Faith3 facts. I can’t help that she can’t see the forest for all of the trees.

    She said Walmart paid their people less than any company in it’s industry. And that Walmart employees didn’t get to share in the success. Walmart gives their employees profit sharing. That is sharing the worth. I also gave her data that showed Walmart paid their employees more than Target, Meijer, Kroger and KMART. Then she says I can’t compare Walmart to Target because Walmart is bigger?
    Now, I can’t forget that she said Walmart was #2 in it’s industry…… WRONG… Walmart is the NUMBER ONE retailer in the world.

    Of USA companies, all companies, Walmart did fall to #2 behind Exxon Mobile. Are you trying to tell me that Exxon is in the same industry as Walmart? (Now, I could call Faith3 dumb and uneducated. I could call her all kinds of names. But I won’t. She did a quick google search and misread the articles title. A mistake that says nothing about her IQ.)

    To say that what a professional athlete is paid does not impact what the rest of the people in the organization can be paid is silly.

    The Miami Heat makes 200 million a year. They have to pay a player 56 million. That leaves only 144 million to pay everyone else who works for the organization.

    You want to believe that only CEOs are greedy. Something that the liberal actors, athletes and activist have been selling to you for years. I show you facts that the people selling you on Corporate greed are part of the greed themselves. Their salaries have increased as much as CEOs since the 1980s. But you don’t want to believe it. That’s fine.

    But don’t lie and say I don’t give you facts. You may not like the facts. You may not understand business well enough to understand them. None of that change the facts that athletes and actors salaries have increased more than the salaries of CEOs since the 1980s.

  • Cathy

    Faith3: What does price point have to do with the price of tea in China?
    Price point has everything to do with the price of tea in China and everywhere in the world.
    You said retailers just pass all increases in the whole sale price on to the consumer and I give you examples that showed it can’t always be been.

    I never give you an apples to oranges comparison between Target and Walmart in productivity. I gave you the average hourly pay of each store’s employee, because you said Walmart pays less then anyone in their industry.
    Which is not true and a falsehood promoted by the unions.

    Now, are you saying because Walmart is a bigger company and more profitable than Target that Walmart workers are more productive?
    Walmart makes more money because Walmart has 10,458 stores and Target only has 1,683.

    The question I did ask you about productivity was this, if a cashier can check out 20 customers an hour because of the new cash register. And the increase productivity can only be done because of the new register. Why does the cashier deserve a reward for the increase productivity? When productivity increases are related to automation or technology and not the hard work of the employees shouldn’t any reward go to the management person who decided to install the new automated systems or the new technology?

  • RedbarSoup

    You want to believe that only CEOs are greedy.

    CEOS seem more greedy because of the illegal activity that some of them do. Tax Loop holes, “having” to shut down a business because of their stupid decisions then blaming it on the workers (AKA Hostess). The company that gave their CEOS a HUGE pay increase (up to 300%) then when the workers wanted some more pay they just go “ohh well sorry, we are just going to file for bankruptcy! and blame it on you!” The thing with Walmart is that they MAKE DARN sure that you get JUST BARELY under the hours so they don’t have to give you any kind of benefits, they also have terrible working conditions in their warehouses, so bad that it feels like it’s a company in China. Let’s not forget they ALSO hurt the economy because they buy all of their products from China which hurts the U.S.’s factory and industries AND hurts local businesses because they can’t compete. ALL in the name of making a few million more dollars for the CEOS, while crapping on their workers with low pay, terrible working conditions, and part time jobs so they don’t have to give them ANY type of benefits.

    The great EU bank robbery: British taxpayers to bail out victims of outrageous raid

    British Government will reimburse military victims of EU’s Cyprus cash grab
    But 60,000 other Britons still face losing money after bail out
    Chaos as banks empty cashpoints and ban online transfers
    Bank tax could have repercussions across Eurozone and beyond

  • Dreamer

    To: Faith3,

    Someone mired in their own convictions.
    I love the disrespect all the while saying that they do not indulge.

  • Dreamer

    Ie. About another poster, just to make that clear. Haaha

  • Sicilian Papa

    Off to work, I am working for less and everything cost more (see page 18), why bother.

    I told you lefties printing money and running trillion dollar deficits year after year was a bad idea.

    Where would the left be without the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media abd there progressive propaganda machine?

  • Coffee Steve

    GOOD MORNING Everyone!

    Guess the string of in the plus days are over for the market, could be a rough day, and I’m glad I had no money in the Greece banks.

    72 On Saturday, 42 Sunday, Heavy Rain for the past 2 days, and now starting Tuesday, in the 30’s and 20’s and snow. Welcome to the Ohio Valley :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Wouldn’t it be a nice way to wake up and learn that Uncle Sam had just raided your savings account without any bill passing and without notifying you?

    *Cyprus set to seize personal savings…

    Cyprus bailout crisis shakes markets

    Euro and shares slide over fears that Cyprus could trigger bank runs in other eurozone countries

    Eurozone finance ministers demanded on Sunday that Cypriots pay up to 10% of their bank deposits in exchange for a €10bn (£8.5bn) bailout, prompting panic across the island as people rushed to cash machines to withdraw their savings.

    Traders are concerned this could set a dangerous precedent that could trigger bank runs in other eurozone countries.

  • Cathy

    Dreamer: Explain to me the disrespect a showed Faith3?
    I told her a fact, which is that retailers can not always pass all of the increases in whole prices on to the consumer.

    She told me my statement was BOLOGNA! (Don’t she disrespect me with that statement?) After that I asked if she had heard of price points. Is that disrespect? Isn’t her statement of what does price pointing have to do with the price of tea in China?, so disrespect to me.

    USA calls people lairs all the time, then says they need to go to real college.
    Jeff spews hatred about people with religious beliefs and calls people “LOSERS”.

    I state facts to another poster. I don’t call her names. I don’t say she is uneducated or needs to go to business school. Yet, I’m the one you say is disrespecting people.

    I wish the statement of, “You can’t fight the facts, attack the person presenting the facts.

    If you are going to call people out. Call all of them out, not just the ones you disagree with.

    If CEOs are breaking the law, why are they being arrested for their crimes.

  • d.d.

    Morning ,all. Still in the 60’s here. Coffee, my husband just pulled green onions from last year for salads & stir fry. He rototilled & planted onion sets & radishes. Hope your peppers are growing.


    Last year , citizens of Honduras attacked government buildings , demanding that American security forces leave the country , labeling them “persona non grata.”

    Today, I read : How Honduran police death squads are responsible for murdering hundreds of civilians while the U.S. pays out millions of dollars in law enforcement aid

    Despite millions of dollars in U.S. aid to Honduras aimed at professionalizing the country’s police, the AP has learned in the past three-years, Honduran prosecutors have received as many as 150 formal complaints about death squad-style killings in the capital of Tegucigalpa, and at least 50 more in the economic hub of San Pedro Sula.

    Police have long been accused of operating more like assassins than law enforcement officers in Honduras, but few cases ever have been investigated.

    In the past year, police were alleged to have been involved in the deaths of a prominent Honduran radio journalist and the son of a former police chief – but neither killing has been solved.

    Even the country’s top police chief has been charged with being complicit.

    I wonder why we keep interfering in other countries ? I know Honduras the reason is drugs .

    What about these?

    24/7 wall street had an article on the 10 countries that hate America the most.

    Disapproval of U.S. leadership had no statistical improvement last year, according to the latest U.S.-Global Leadership Project, a partnership between Meridian International Center and Gallup.

    10. Serbia
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 57% (tied for 9th highest)

    9. Greece
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 57% (tied for 9th highest)

    8. Yemen
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 59%

    7. Iraq
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 60%

    6. Iran
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 61%

    5. Egypt
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 62%

    4. Lebanon
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 64%

    3. Algeria
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 67%

    2. Palestinian Territories
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 77%

    1. Pakistan
    > Pct. disapprove of U.S. leadership: 79%

    The United States is continuing to make large payments of roughly $1 billion a year to Pakistan , 600 million to Palestine since 2008 . Algeria receives about 300 million a year . Lebanon receives about 1075 million a year from us ; Egypt 1.5 billion , Iraq 1.683 million (2012). Yemen averages between $20 and $25 million annually in total U.S. foreign aid. Greece receives 100 million a year & Serbia 46 million dollars .

    The U.S.A. sends foreign aid to countries that despise us , burn our flag, & our President in effigy. What have we accomplished with our gifts ?

  • Cathy

    I not a in the last post of mine.

    Good morning to everyone.

    Coffee, Good morning, we will know about the U.S. market in 40 minutes. I used to be a bigger saver ten years ago. But when I saw our government spending endlessly I decided to start spending my money before the government took it.

  • Ratboy

    Goooood Morning! SNOWING AGAIN!!! Didn’t know it was coming!

    I woke up yesterday and decided….ROAD TRIP!!!! Went and spoiled my grandbabies! I love being impulsive!

    Doug Z, to answer your question “Could Obama do it?” He is already in a sense looking to the one percenters to pay for his bailout. He would not do it to the lower end of the spectrum because that would defeat his nanny state thinking!

  • Letmethink

    Good Morning All
    @dd. looks like money down the drain to me like most things our government does trying to fix things. Heard Wilkow say that if you put the government in charge of the desert we would soon run out of sand.
    @Cathy. Went back and read discussion between you and Faith. I saw no disrespect on your part. A good discussion between two people coming from completely different points of view. Maybe Dreamer was referring to another poster. Being a conservative myself, I agreed with all you posted. The song “Won’t Back Down” kept coming to my mind.
    @coffee. When do you get new dentures?
