  1. I was at Dazey’s this past week, on an outing with my garden club (really) and was very disappointed to learn that management has decided to do away with the nursery section to make room for big trucks. Too many complaints about the congestion, and the stupid horticultural plants don’t make any money anyways.

    Another one of the shocks to my landscape-design loving system was to see a stack of 55 gal. drums of bloom.

    And did you know that the wine grapes they’re putting in at the ‘so-called’ community park will be irrigated? When that ag land is known for it’s dry farming potential?

    There’s only room for capitalism in our ‘community’….all this blah blah on the radio about how eco-groovy and cutting edge everyone around here is is pure, unadulterated bullshit.

    Party on, SoHum.

    Is weed another name for Soma?

    • Thank you Katya for the report. I haven’t been to Dazeys in so long I hadn’t noticed, but that’s another example of how dope yuppies destroy our local economy. Grapes in the Community Park? Really? Why? Do we really need community supported alcoholism here in SoHum?

  2. Grapes planted in bottom land only need water for the first two years usually.

    Leave it to Estelle to blow $3,000.00 to encourage the development of little capitalists, who are guaranteed to sell less than $3,000 of lemonade. I doubt Bud Rogers would have wasted that money that way. Like kids need extra training to become capitalists when the capitalist program permeates the media and the country.

    As Alexis de Tocqueville wrote:
    As one digs deeper into the national character of the Americans, one sees that they have sought the value of everything in this world only in the answer to this single question: how much money will it bring in?
    Letter to Ernest de Chabrol, 9 June 1831

    I know of no country, indeed, where the love of money has taken stronger hold on the affections of men, and where the profounder contempt is expressed for the theory of the permanent equality of property.
    Democracy In America, vol. 1.

    • I agree with everything you say here, except the bit about the grapes. The last thing we need here is more wine, so keep your grapes away from Humboldt County. I prefer blackberries, and there’s plenty of them here already.
