SERIOUS NOTE: Trying “NOT” to be too political with this blog, I’d just like to note to PLEASE, let’s all wear masks or get vaccinated, because the COVID DELTA variant is more contagious and a bit more severe than the regular COVID-19.
But it is summer. Summer FUN can happen whether it rains or not. (I had a friend who liked to splash in summer puddles for fun.) And our recent summer fun consisted of a visit to a regional festival near Virginia Tech called Steppin’ Out.
SUMMER AT PARKS
Summer is also garden time, swim time, picnicking and camping time. I recently, as a Master naturalist, took state park visitors on an “edibles” hike. Most people have no idea what they could eat if the grocery store closed down (like dandelion leaves, grass, especially the white starchy part above the root, wild blackberries, or watercress).

Welcome To Great American Idea
Extensively, I will provide ideas and examples on managing money better, paying for an education, dealing with doctors, good ideas or deals when it comes to travel. There is also the science element, as it relates to my book “Great American Women in Science and Environment.” Science and the future can be both a good thing or bad depending on your consumer choices and outlook. And writers can always use tips on how and where to make money. I will do regular blogs on these issues.
