This week starting Friday and running through Sunday at Comcast Arena in Everett you can get out of the blasted cold and rainy weather and do a little dreaming about all the wonderful things you would like to do to your home and garden this year (if it ever stops raining). Hundreds of exhibitors will be tempting you with new and exciting ideas, new products and new services. You can learn all about the new energy efficient (so called "green" or "sustainable") products that are on the market as well as new techniques for all sorts of home projects. From kitchens to bathrooms to garages to gardens and patios, there is bound to be something that will catch your interest and send you back home all refreshed and ready to forge ahead (once it stops raining).
In addition to visiting all these exhibitors you will also have the opportunity to experience several demonstrations and lectures during the course of the weekend. This is where I get excited because I will be one of those presenters that will be bringing you all the latest scoop on what's hot in the gardening world from new plant introductions to new products to grow better tomatoes, healthier soils, gardening tips and techniques that I have learned over the years that will save you time and money, pruning advice for your shrubs and vines, how to divide your hostas or make your Rhodies more compact and a whole host of other topics too numerous to mention.Batucada at Byrnes Performing Arts Center

Although Emanuel's proposals were standard Democratic talking points winking to the labor unions, proposing increased government spending on education, health care and alternative energy sources his proposals were clear and straightforward. His essential political philosophy shared by Clinton and Obama can be summarized in one word: "more," as in, "more government."

More government spending and programs or less? More government power over us or less?Is the PAC on the right track?
