Phew! Got it at last.....

We recited this poem on parents day many years ago when I was a student in primary school. And from the stage, I could see my mum from hundreds of parents as she craned her neck trying to catch a glimpse of me in action. And after we had finished with the presentation, she was among the first to clap thunderously with her face full of pride. These lines have always been etched in my memory up to today and thanks God because this afternoon I stumbled across the poem and will gladly share it with you. I'm sure many of you will recall it because it was as famous as the Swahili.."Mgeni kumpokea, kumbe ni kujitongea.." So relax and ji-enjoy.

The wind howls, the trees sway
The loose housetop sheets clatter and clang
The open window shuts with a bang
And the sky makes night of day.

Helter skelter the parents run
Pressed with a thousand minor cares
Hey you there! Pack the house wares!
And where on earth is my son?


- Pius Oleghe, "A sudden storm

As much as you may want to grow radishes and lentils in your
kitchen you don't want to blemish your frugal reputation. Again, using companion planting techniques will help your organic garden flourish.

Also, they are lighter and can be used around plants which prefer somewhat acid content
in the soil composition. Wear disposable gloves to keep from
directly touching feces. In this same respect, mulch aids in the prevention of soil
splashing onto plants.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem
is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently
about. Now i'm very happy I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.
