Issue Date: October 17, 2019

Lazy is better???

There's definitely a hint of winter in the air this week, maybe more than a hint. The northern reaches of Timesland were hit with a bit of snow on Saturday, Oct. 12. We were blessed with a few days of wonderful, golden Autumn sunshine, with the trees all aglow in the daytime and the marvelous harvest moon dominating the sky all night.

Most of the trees are bare now, but some still retain their bright scarlet and gold Autumn plumage. Wonder if we would appreciate them if they kept that color year-round, or if we'd just get used to being surrounded by their glowing beauty and forget to notice?

LAZY IS BETTER?

Am absolutely delighted! Have found an excellent excuse to my somewhat hands-off approach to fall yard duty.

Tod Winston, program manager for the Audubon Society's Audubon's Plants for Birds program, says when it comes to providing a safe haven for our feathered friends, it's better to let some fall tasks call go undone. "Messy is definitely good to provide food and shelter for birds during the cold winter months," says Winston.

He says when fall arrives, some tidy-minded gardeners might be inclined to snip the stems of perennials in the flower garden, but letting them alone is better for the birds. The seed heads of coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, and other native wildflowers provide a helpful food cache for birds. "They're almost invisible, those seeds, but birds eat them all winter long," Winston says.

Grasses"not the stuff you mow, but native species like bluestems or gramas"also make for good foraging after they go to seed. And letting other dead plants stick around can fill your property with protein-packed bird snacks in the form of insect larvae, such as the fly and wasp larvae that inhabit goldenrod galls and other plant forms.

You can also help birds and other wildlife"and save yourself some backache and blisters"by skipping the leaf raking. "Those leaves are important because they rot and enrich the soil, and also provide places for bugs and birds to forage for food," Winston says. If a fully hands-off approach doesn't work for your yard, consider composting some leaves and letting the rest be. You could also rake them from the lawn to your garden beds, or mulch them with a mower to nourish your lawn.

He doesn't mention it, but it's better for you, from a fire safety standpoint, to keep long grasses mowed and leaves raked away from the areas around your house and other buildings.

However, for the remainder of the yard, he notes that leaf litter isn't just free fertilizer"it's also a pretty happening patch of habitat for a variety of critters such as salamanders, snails, worms, and toads. "If you're digging in the garden and come upon these squirmy little coppery-brown dudes, and you don't know what they are"those are moth pupae," Winston says. A healthy layer of undisturbed soil and leaf litter means more moths, which in their caterpillar phase are a crucial food source for birds. They also will be good for pollinating plants next summer.

Another suggestion from Winston does require a bit of work, and that is building a brush pile. He suggests rather than hauling away fallen twigs and branches, use them to build a brush pile that will shelter birds from lousy weather and predators. American Tree Sparrows, Black-capped Chickadees, and other wintering birds will appreciate the protection from the elements. Rabbits, snakes, and other wildlife also will take refuge there. You'll find that the pile settles and decomposes over the seasons ahead, making room for next year's additions. He notes it's also a good place to dispose of your Christmas tree.

The bird friendly approach also requires neglecting the Autumn "weed and feed" routine used used by some in fall to fertilize lawns and knock back crabgrass and other unwanted plants. Letting nature take its course saves time and money. Winston says in most cases grass clippings and mulched leaf litter provide plenty of plant nutrition, and using store-bought fertilizers only encourages more non-native plants to grow. Generally speaking, native grasses, shrubs, trees, and flowering plants don't need chemical inputs, and leaving them off will keep your yard healthy for bugs and birds.

So there it is. Let someone else keep up with the neighbors this weekend. Sleep in, linger a little longer with your morning coffee, and end up with a bird-friendly yard to be proud of. What could be better than that?

If you're sensitive about letting your yard attain that unkempt look, Winston suggests mowing some paths through the unkept part of the yard and posting some signs proclaiming "Wild Bird Habitat."

ALSO FOR THE BIRDS

The Auubon.org website also suggests using pumpkins to make back yard bird feeders during the Fall season, particularly appropriate for Halloween, and for continued use from that Jack O' Lantern after Halloween is over.

For each feeder you will need a small to medium sized pumpkin, up to 10 pounds, some small sticks, twine or rope, and appropriate varieties of bird seeds.

Simply cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds and strings, leaving a hollow inside with a 1/2-inch thick shell wall. Insert two sticks across the open pumpkin to create perches for the birds. Knot two lengths of rope together at the center and tack the knot to the bottom of the pumpkin feeder. Do the same thing going the other direction. Hang the four rope ends of the rope in your chosen feeder location. Fill with birdseed and you're done. Alternatively, nail the hollowed out pumpkin shell to the top of a wooden fence post and insert the wooden perches before filling it with bird seed.

Either way, the birds get to eat, and you get to enjoy watching them. In our part of the country those feeders probably won't last long, though. Deer and/or bear will likely come around to dine on the feeders themselves, never mind the seeds that they hold.

SPELL CHECK

Thank goodness for spell check"sometimes. Have had it make some really bad corrections, but recently was saved from an actually quite appropriate keyboard glitch. Trustees of a TIMESland village approved a beverage server's license allowing an employee to sell packaged goods at a local convenience store, which around here almost always means a case or a six-pack of Wisconsin's national beverage. The story as almost printed said the board approved a beerage server's license. Not all that wrong when you think about it.

ON THE SOAP BOX

LOTS SCARIER

The horrors that Socialism and Communism can bring on - and have brought on in some other countries of this world - are very real, and very likely to be happening here if things keep going as they are.

The tendency of some of today's politicians to promote Communism and Socialism as goals for this country - and the incomprehensible tendency of some pseudo-intellectual liberals to vote for them - is lots scarier to some of us than any ghost or goblin could ever be.

And who is afraid?

Those of us who lived through the cold war days, who talked at length with finally freed residents of former East Germany who lived under Stalin and his Communist dictatorship, who worked at the Peshtigo Times in years past and watched little old Gus cry over the horrible things done to his family under the Russian dictatorship, when he came in each year to thank America for being what it is, and for letting him live here.

We know what we have to fear. Gus was a refugee from the Communist takeover of his half of Germany, and had been forced to watch as Communist soldiers raped his mother and sister and then "stomped them to death."

Those of us with Sister Cities who visited Crivitz, Germany - in what formerly was East Germany - and saw our German hosts mutter "Ruskis!!!" as they shook fists at the ugly rows of concrete bunker apartment buildings in Schwerin, their nearest big city, basically their county seat, where their Communist oppressors once lived.They told us the Russian Communists were so hated that no one will even live in those buildings today.

We are afraid!

Those of us who talked with Russian visitors at the Peshtigo Times office shortly after the Russian wall in Berlin was torn down. Those visitors were matter-of-fact when they talked about shortages of pretty much everything under their system of government. Simply accepted lack of meat and butter for their tables and soap for their laundry and personal hygiene as facts of life that simply had to be lived with.

We are afraid!

Those of us who watched people on TV attempting to escape from Communism get shot and killed by Communist guns in the no-man's on each side of the wall. Don't forget. Unlike the wall that's proposed today for the US/Mexican border - that wall was built by Russia to keep people inside their Communist prison, to stop them from escaping from Russia and East Germany to find freedom on our side.

We watched, and we're afraid!

Many of those refuges were so desperate for freedom that they were willing to die trying. And sadly, many of them did, while we in the free world watched and grieved for them, and President Ronald Reagan finally demanded that the wall come down.

Socialism is a first cousin to Communism. Is that really the future we want for our children?

"ISM" DEFINITIONS

Must admit though, that those who say Capitalism doesn't work are partly right. Capitalism indeed does not work...for those who will not work!

One problem today is that kids are not really taught what Communism, Socialism, and Capitalism are. They hear the words, "greedy Capitalist," and believe it, not realizing that if their dad has money in a 401(K), then he's a dirty, greedy Capitalist!" If they have money in an interest bearing savings account, so are they!

They are not taught that Capitalism, the economic system where everyone is free to benefit from his or her own hard work, is what made America so great that the rest of the western world followed that path. Now we have a flock of misguided politicians telling us that was the wrong path! Incredibly - liberals in other states have elected some of them.

Friend recently sent me a copy of a decades old Ann Landers column written in response to a teacher looking for an easy way to explain the different economic systems. It's a great explanation, and still as true as when it was written three decades or so ago. Here is her definition of the "isms":

"Socialism: You have two cows. Give one cow to your neighbor.

"Communism: You have two cows. Give both cows to the government, and they may give you some of the milk.

"Fascism: You have two cows. You give all of the milk to the government, and the government sells it.

"Nazism: You have two cows. The government shoots you and takes both cows.

"Anarchism: You have two cows. Keep both cows, shoot the government agent and steal another cow.

"Capitalism: You have two cows. Sell one cow and buy a bull," and finally:

"Surrealism: You have two giraffes. The government makes you take harmonica lessons."

Must agree with those definitions, but Socialism needs a bit more explanation.

In Socialism, government makes you give one of your two cows to your neighbor, who has none. You raise corn and other forage crops and feed your cow. Your cow lives through the winter and, since you planned ahead, it has a calf. You now have two cows again.

Meanwhile, your neighbor did not plant food crops, and his cow starved to death. So again, government makes you give one of your cows to your neighbor, and some of its milk as well. Eventually you lose your land because you can't pay your taxes. Now you can't raise feed and can't afford to buy any, so you give up and eat your cow.

Under Capitalism, you keep both cows, buy a bull, plant food for them, and maybe hire your neighbor to help do all the work. If you're generous, you will share some of the milk with neighbors who have none. If your neighbor is smart, eventually he also will buy a cow, and then a bull, and you will both have milk, and some day even beef, to sell. Everybody eats well.

Of course, according to the short sighted Green New Deal politicians, those cows are polluting the atmosphere, so nobody should have them.

Guess they're willing to live in a world without beef, cheese, butter,milk, or even Jell-O. I for one am not. How about you?

WHO WON?

Hillary Clinton made what may have been a Freudian slip during a recent news interview. Said she would beat Donald Trump "again" if she decides to run for president in 2020. If she actually did beat him in 2016 wouldn't she be the one now living in the White House?

A reader last week claimed President Trump did not get the most votes in 2016. Am in the process of collecting information on the total votes and the number of electoral votes that President Trump got in the last election. A reminder: Our nation's founding chose to make this nation a Republic, versus the bully-backed "majority rules" model of government being pushed by those who thumb their noses at the outcome of our last election.

Watch for follow-up next week.

COOKIN' TIME

This is the perfect time to enjoy locally grown fresh Brussels Sprouts, those wonderful little cabbages that many of us once hated but now have come to love. Pop a pan of Brussels Sprouts into the oven to roast along with whatever else you're cooking there, and they may end up as the stars of the meal.

ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

2 pounds of Brussels Sprouts

1/4 cup olive oil

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to at least 400 degrees. Trim and halve the Brussels Sprouts and place in a large mixing bowl. Add everything else and toss together. Then spread the halves in single layer on a large baking sheet, cut side down and arranged so they don't touch. Roast about half an hour or until they're tender and starting to caramelize on the bottom and the edges. If not quite brown enough, put the pan on the floor of the oven for two to three minutes. Serve promptly while warm, and enjoy! Sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese if you like. Also, instead of the salt and pepper, try adding a teaspoon of lemon pepper to the oil before you toss the sprout halves. The cooked sprouts will last three to four days in the fridge, but you'll need a very securely covered dish, because once sprouts are cooked they do tend to smell bad.

ORIENTAL SKILLET SUPPER

Friend and co-worker Mike shared this terrific recipe that's on its way to becoming a go-to meal in our house and his. Serves four hungry people for less than $5, is quick and easy to prepare, with little cleanup afterward, and nutritious besides. What more could you ask?

1 pound low-fat ground beef

2 1/2 cups water

2 (3 ounce) packages beef-flavor Ramen noodles

1/2 cup stir fry sauce (your choice)

1 (16-ounce) bag frozen oriental or stir-fry vegetables

We used a slightly spicy Szechwan stir fry sauce and the new beef picante flavor, but the regular kind works just as well, and add cayenne pepper if you want it hotter.

In a large, heavy frying pan or wok, brown the burger, breaking it up as it fries. Add the water, contents of the Ramen noodle seasoning packets, and the vegetables. Stir to mix all together, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Break up the Ramen noodles and stir them into contents of the pan. Cover again, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes or until the vegetables are done, noodles are tender and sauce is thickened. Serve with more sauce for those who like it hotter. You could sprinkle on canned fried noodles if you want more crunch, but plain was fine with us. Mike said he added a bit of minced ghost pepper to his vegetable mixture, because he really likes things hot. Jalapeño pepper should work too. Just because I had a half pepper left over, I added sliced it and added it with the frozen vegetables.

CHOCOLATE SOUP BROWNIES

Bake breakfast cereal into these brownies for your kids. If you serve it with a big glass of milk, it's not that much different from a bowl of hot cooked cereal with lots of sugar. Just keep telling yourself that. On the other hand, if your kids are active, the added butter n sugar won't hurt them, and they're still getting the nutrition, with protein from the eggs as well. Have a great grand-daughter who when she was a little tyke knew she loved coco wheat cereal but didn't know what to call it, so she asked me to make her more chocolate soup. Named this recipe in her honor.

1 cup butter

2 1/2 cups sugar

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat until fluffy. Beat in the Cocoa Wheats. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Gradually add this to the creamed mixture. Using the electric mixer is okay. Mixture will be thick. By hand, stir in the chocolate chips and/or nuts. Spread in a greased 9"X12" baking pan and bake 45 minutes.

Thought for the week: According to the late, great President Ronald Reagan: "Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it." Think about it, and he's absolutely right. Communism and/or Socialism would work if all people were saints. But its a fact of life that people in general are not saints. If enough temptation comes along often enough, someone will snap up the opportunity to take it.
