Learned something while reading my new Southern Living magazine, it seems that the Rose of Sharons we grow here are actually a type of Hibiscus. Who knew? I mean, I knew my Confederate Rose was a Hibiscus developed for the south, but I didn't know the Rose of Sharon was too.

I've felt the need to read something a bit more philosophical lately so I ordered an old copy of the 10th anniversary book of Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin, the wee imp in the cartoons, is named for the 16th century theologian who believed in predestination and Hobbes, the tiger, is named for a 17th century philosopher with a dim view of human nature.
It should be a good week of reading and thinking deep thoughts.
