  1. Everyone who can should bring a jug of water up to the new park to water the trees that are dying. It’s easy to tell which ones…their leaves are brown.

    If the leaves are brown, the tree is dead. Water will not bring it back to life.

    Oh, goodie! Ice-cream, milk, cookies, cake and more ice-cream… well, I suppose we should be thankful there aren’t more nail salons heading our way!
