“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
Western Salsify (T. dubius Scop.) and Meadow Salsify (T. pratensis L.) are the most common species of this plant that looks like a giant dandelion. Western Salsify is native to Europe and Northern Africa and was brought to North America as a garden vegetable for its carrot like taproot and “oystery taste”. Since then it has spread to roadsides, old abandoned fields, no-till field, pastures and other undisturbed areas. ~ btny.purdue.edu
Eaten raw, the roots are very bitter; fried, roasted, or boiled, the taste of salsify roots have been compared to that of parsnips. Others say they slide down like oysters, hence its common moniker, oyster plant. Cream the roots in a soup or simmer young stalks in butter for a side dish rich in Vitamin B6. ~aspoonfulofthyme.blogspot.com
I’m O.K. with parsnips, but oysters? No thanks!!

Both Vimeo and YouTube slide shows are the 960 x 540 option. Both sites utilized the free plan option and were shared from IMovie.
So, what’s the difference between YouTube and Vimeo?
YouTube is owned by Google, and therefore by linking your YouTube content in with your Google My Business account is most likely to gain you some SEO points. YouTube and Google also give you the ability to stream videos live via Google Hangouts. On the other hand, your videos on YouTube will be subject to more ads and a more cluttered interface.
For businesses looking for higher quality video presentation there is Vimeo. Vimeo will allow you to upload your videos at a higher quality, and less distractions.

Winters can be long and brutal in Minnesota, but that just makes spring all the sweeter. Optimism fills the air as the soil receives tender seeds and new life spring forth. Across the road, newborn baby calves are bouncing under the watchful eye of their mothers munching on fresh spring grass.
…and children play.
