| Political Talk|| So who's been following the Turkish Troubles? - shinerfan on 6/12/13 at 9:28 pm|
I've been crazy busy the last two weeks and haven't had the time. Are these really anti-Islamist protestors? The rise of Erdogan was the most troubling aspect of modern Islamic fundamentalism, at least to me. But it seems Ataturk's influence lives on?
There's a war for the heart and future of Isl...

I've never made wine but I was at my mom's old house this past weekend and noticed that her pear trees are just loaded down with pears that are maybe a week away from optimum ripeness. Three trees with probably near a thousand pears. No one lives there and I hate to just leave them for the squirrels...
