Quotes

"This is kind of like a Huckleberry Finn moment to be here on the river and see something like this" said Dr JohnJohn Lopez, executive director of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation
...Check you are sowing pansies and violas that will bloom through autumn/winter. There are trailing pansies (F1 'Plentifall Mixed') and violas ( "Allspice Mixed') for those with a penchant for winter baskets. Bellis perennis 'Tasso Mixed' sends up pink, red and white spring pom-poms. If space is tight, primrose 'Mardi Gras Mixed' produces plants under 6in (15cm) tall, in bold colours, white, orange and gold among them. If you want bold splashes of colour, polyanthus 'Pacific Giants' is hard to beat. For more subtle, single shades, visit barnhaven.com There's no need to dust off a heated propagator if you're sowing seeds in summer. The background warmth of a greenhouse is ample for most to germinate. But you can use a propagator lid to stand over pots of seeds to prevent them from drying out. The best place during hot, sunny spells is on low-down staging, or even in shade on the greenhouse floor. If shade is elusive, covering sown pots with newspaper slows the drying of the compost surface (which hampers germination). Spray them over lightly with water, several times a day if need be, to keep it moist. If sowing seems a long-haul route to winter and spring colour, young plug plants are your salvation. The grower does the sowing, so all you need do is unpack the box, fill small pots with multipurpose peat-free compost (give new professional-grade SylvaGrow a try), make a hole in each and plug in a plant. That's it. Plugs start arriving in August, but order them now."
"It's the Rose Bowl parade. It's the Mardi Gras of Football. It's New Year's Eve in Times Square. It's all those things. It celebrates Pro Football like nothing else can. Because it's here in Canton, Ohio where the game, actually the National Football League, was founded so the league had it's beginnings here and players end their career here in the sense of being elected to the Hall of Fame" said Joe Horrigan, vice president of communication with the Hall of Fame
"Kara was always a community activist and a social activist in her fight to always make things a little bit better" said her sister, Kristine Rizzuto
