There’s a new Royal Heinzness in town. Move over KetchupQueen, or she will just shove you over, & then probably kick you.   :o

This is more of a sad story than a weird one (& a cautionary one - do not try this at home, on the road, in an empty field with nothing within 100 yards, or anywhere else). But I couldn't find another thread that it would fit into.

Are there really people who don't know better? :(

If you’re having trouble recognizing your kids lately, this may be why.  :o

Here’s one more thing to tell them “Don’t try this at home – or anywhere else.” This is more scary than weird, but that doesn't take away the weirdness. It also seems weird that the first hospital didn’t send the kid in an ambulance. His parents must have been out of their minds, & the hospital might be considered liable if they’d had an accident because they were so distracted. :(

This doesn’t sound like something I want to try at all, whether on Frontrunner from South Jordan to Salt Lake or Delta from San Francisco to Amsterdam.  ::)

How scared would you have to be to take refuge by climbing a 40-foot cactus?  :o

It's one thing to climb up a 40-foot cactus, & quite another to have one come into your car  :o  (by implicit invitation, in this case, as the driver as being investigated for possible impaired driving, which is another way of saying you make your choices & take the conssequences).

Not so much weird news as sad news:

As many of you know, Utah passed the Medical Cannabis Act last November. My niece, who is in high school, had a part time job delivering lettuce for a local farm. My neice is now out of a job because the farm just tore out their entire lettuce crop and re-planted with marijuana. An alfalfa farm near my wife's parents did the same thing with their alfalfa fields. I wonder how many people didn't realize that food crops would be replaced with marijuana when they voted for the Cannabis Act. <Sigh> I suppose it's better than Utah's market being slammed by the "Big Weed" growers from out of state...

This is happening a lot in California. Since we're the nation's salad bowl, & there are dozens of food crops where 90% or more of the country's supply is grown in California, this will certainly affect the prices of food (for people or livestock & other domestic animals) just as it puts people out of work.

A similar thing happened awhile back when a lot of agricultural land was turned to growing wine grapes. I have friends in the Sonoma Valley who had an apple orchard, & they got an offer to turn to land to wine grapes that they couldn't turn down.

Dear Abby,

How can I get my grandkids to spend more time with me? I am a grandma in her 90s and I know I only have so many years left. My husband and I generously invited them to a wonderful holiday at our country estate, but my granddaughter-in-law thought it was more important to traipse off to a sporting event half a world away where one of her friends was participating. Yes, my grandson and their child came, but I think it was rude and inconsiderate for his wife to beg off. This has upset me so much that I asked our other family and friends not to mention these ungrateful young people in my presence. Some of the family think I’m too demanding and not giving the “kids” enough space. What do you think, Abby, am I right that I should expect my grandchildren to humor me a little in my old age? After all, they have decades ahead of them to go jetting around the world once I kick off.


------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Abby,

We are a couple in our 30s who recently became parents. My grandparents, especially grandma, are really doting and love to spend time with their great-grands, and they’re constantly wanting us to go on holidays with them, pose for pictures with them, and so on. We were recently invited to join the rest of the family at my grandparents’ stuffy old estate out in the sticks, but instead my wife went overseas to attend an event where one of her good friends was performing. Grandma tells us she only has so many more years to enjoy her little ones, and now we feel selfish, ungrateful, and guilty. Even worse, she told other family members that she doesn’t want them to mention us in her presence. Are we expecting too much to want to go on occasional outings with only our immediate family? Or are we horrible children for feeling that Grandma is smothering us?
