• Does anyone know where I might find the old fashioned pear that is called a sugar pear in the south.?

    It is definitely NOT the sugar pear that I have seen pictures of in some catalogs. I even purchased a tree labeled "Sugar Pear" and it was totally different. The ones I am looking for are green with a little rusty yellow as they ripen. They are fairly grainy. They are roundish, but not real round. They have snow white flesh, which is... show more
    It is definitely NOT the sugar pear that I have seen pictures of in some catalogs. I even purchased a tree labeled "Sugar Pear" and it was totally different. The ones I am looking for are green with a little rusty yellow as they ripen. They are fairly grainy. They are roundish, but not real round. They have snow white flesh, which is very, very sweet and juicy. They are very hardy. I know that is probably not information to identify. But, if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I also need to find where to purchase them. Thank you.

  • Can anyone help me identify this shrub?

    When I was young, my mother had a shrub in her yard that I have not been able to find anywhere, especially since I don't know its name. It was destroyed many years ago, so I will describe it. It was a small compact shrub, about 2 feet tall and 2 or 3 feet across. It grew in a perfect mound shape, with the thin branches sort of weeping to... show more
    When I was young, my mother had a shrub in her yard that I have not been able to find anywhere, especially since I don't know its name. It was destroyed many years ago, so I will describe it. It was a small compact shrub, about 2 feet tall and 2 or 3 feet across. It grew in a perfect mound shape, with the thin branches sort of weeping to form the tight mound. The branches reminded me of the branches of scotch broom, but the shape was nothing like scotch broom. The blooms reminded me of forsythia blooms or carolina jessamine blooms, and it bloomed about the same time as those (early spring). Still, it didn't have the shape of either. It was really pretty with its short ball-shaped mound. This plant was planted by my mother in the 1940s if that helps. If anyone knows what this might be, please let me know or tell me a website where I might find one for sale.

  • If I buy an acre of land with a hill on it that goes up at about 45 degrees and down the other side about?

    the same, how was the land measured? If I bulldoze it to a flat area, and haul away the dirt, will I have less than an acre? When they survey, do they measure up and down the hills, or as if the hills were removed (flat plane)?

  • Do archaeologists and historians sometimes ignore simple biblical answers?

    There was an episode on the history channel about the Hittites on which it showed systems of underground cave cities where it stated that the Hittites went to protect themselves from their enemies. It also stated that the Hittites disappeared around 1200 BC, and that their disappearance cannot be accounted for. The next day my husband and I were... show more

It also stated that the Hittites disappeared around 1200 BC, and that their disappearance cannot be accounted for. The next day my husband and I were having our daily devotional. We were reading about the Israelites going in to conquer the land of Canaan (around 1200BC-1100BC). It tells of them conquering the Hittites, among others, and completely destroying them. Also, in Judges Chapter 6 it tells of the Israelites living in caves to protect themselves from invaders. Seems to me this would explain the "unexplained disappearance" of the Hittites. Even if some people don't want to admit it, the bible is full of historical information.

  • Does anyone remember the snack cakes called Ukaneta pies?

    Does anyone remember Ukaneta pies? Spelling may be wrong. They were kind of like the Little Debbie cakes with the cherry in the center, but they were lots bigger. Do they still make them anywhere?
