With the discovery of fumes during my high school days, automobile and perfume, I had little time to retain any of the lessons taught. However, there is one nursery rhyme that has stayed with me through the years, and that one is:

Scintillate, scintillate globual vivific,

Fain would I fathom thy nature specific,

Distantly poised in the ether capacious,

Faintly resembling a gem carbonaceous.

Surely the Internet will let you know to what this popular nursery rhyme is referring, however we will be at the Farmers Market this coming weekend with the answer. Come see us and support the Hall County 4Hers. We will be in stall No. 18.

May God bless our teachers, our troops and our country.
