Google Turns Out The Lights (Earth Hour)

The Google search page is black today in support of a conservation effort called Earth Hour. On Saturday, March 29, 2008, Earth Hour invites people around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – from 8:00pm to 9:00pm in their local time zone. On this day, cities around the world, including Copenhagen, Chicago, Melbourne, Dubai, and Tel Aviv, will hold events to acknowledge their commitment to energy conservation.

Will this effort make a difference? Probably not a big difference, but every little step towards energy conservation helps and hopefully this will raise awareness.

You may ask why Google is supporting this effort. Google has a charitable arm called Two of the major initiatives of are related to the better usage of energy. These initiatives are:
  • Develop Renewable Energy Cheaper Than Coal (RE
  • Accelerate the Commercialization of Plug-In Vehicles (RechargeIT) :seed innovation, demonstrate technology, inform the debate, and stimulate market demand to foster mass commercialization of plug-in vehicles.
There has been a lot of talk around the world for years about reducing energy usage, reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and development of cleaner forms of energy. Precious little progress has been made though. Perhaps with companies such as Google getting behind the effort, more progress will be made. In the mean time, the Pohick family will be turning off the lights tonight in support of Earth Hour. We hope that you do the same! It's our planet. Let's take care of it.

Habitat For Humanity

Jake had an opportunity today to give back a little bit to the community. He participated in building a Habitat For Humanity house.

Habitat For Humanity is an international, ecumenical Christian, non-governmental, non-profit organization devoted to building "simple, decent, and affordable" housing. Homes are built using volunteer labor and are sold at no profit, with no interest charged on the mortgage. Homeowner families are chosen according to their need; their ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest mortgage; and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat. Homeowners are usually expected to put approximately 500 hours of "sweat equity" into their own or other project homes.

This of course wouldn't be a good Pohick story, without telling you about the details of Jake's adventure (or should we say misadventure). This was the first time that Jake has participated in a habitat project. He was invited to do so by members of his church. When Jake showed up at the work site, he saw a big sign that said, "Habitat For Humanity" and it listed a bunch of churches that are supporting the project. Jake reported to the site foreman and was given a job painting walls. After about two hours, Jake noticed that he had not seen anyone else from his church. He had met and chatted with a bunch of other really nice folks though. Jake was surprised that no one else from his church was participating that day since they had all been talking so much about the project. Finally, during a break, Jake looked at the sign-in list and came to a realization. He was at the WRONG work site. He looked up the street and saw another house under construction. Sure enough, that was the house he was supposed to be at. So, Jake went to the correct house and after a little (well, more than a little) good natured ribbing, Jake was put to work putting the roof on the house. All is well that ends well!

If you have the opportunity to work on a habitat project in your area, I recommend that you do so. You don't need any special skills except a willingness to help. You may even pick up a new trick or two on how to fix things in your own home. Just like those classes at Home Depot, except it won't cost you anything except a little bit of time.

If you would like to read a nuts and bolts book on the process Habitat For Humanity uses to build its houses, check out Habitat for Humanity: How to Build a House. It is written by Larry Haun, a veteran crew leader who has led the construction of hundreds of habitat for humanity homes.

Alabama Learner's Permit

Today marks a major milestone. Scribbles Pohick received her learner's permit. And yes, when I say learner's permit, I mean a real live license to operate an automobile. My immediate thoughts were, "This can't be happening to me. I'm not old enough to have a daughter who is old enough to operate an automobile." I also find it hard to escape the thought that time is passing by entirely too quickly. We only brought Scribbles home from the hospital a year or two ago or so it seems. And to me, it seems as if this is the same little girl who just started kindergarten last week. How can she be old enough to drive a car? Now intellectually, I realize that she is indeed old enough (legally at least) to drive a car. That doesn't ease my angst though. If the last fifteen years have gone by so quickly, how fast will the next few precious years pass by. How long before scribbles graduates from high school and starts college? (3 years). How long before she graduates from college? (7 years). How long before she brings home a young man for the family to meet? (Editor's note: Jake passed out at this thought and had to be revived by splashing cold water on his face and patting his wrists. He is OK now. ) So, I guess the moral of the story is that we can't stop time. Live your life the best way that you can, help those around you and by all means make the most of the time with those closest to you.

If your child is going to be driving soon, I recommend that you take a look at these resources.
PS. I'm sure that scribbles will do just fine with driving, but you might want to use some caution if you are in the Alabama vicinity for the next while.

Favorite Movies

As we were watching The Sound of Music today, we had the chance to hear the song "these are a few of my favorite things". This song sung by Maria talks about "Rain drops on roses" and "Whiskers on Kittens". It got us to thinking about some of our favorite things and the discussion turned to movies. It became apparent to us that you can tell a lot about a person by the movies which have had an impact on their lives. We decided to make a list to share with you. It is interesting to note not only which favorite movies we picked, but also the time period in which the favorite movies were released.

Frost Protection For Your Plants And Flowers

Spring is a tough time of year to be a gardener. It can be 80 degrees one day and drop below freezing the next.

When planting in the Spring it is important not invest time and money on plants and flowers only to have them destroyed by a late frost. You can protect your investment by selecting plants that have a high tolerance for frost, or by waiting to plant until after the last frost date for your area. There are a number of websites on the internet that will provide you with the last frost date for your area. One of these sites is Victory Seeds.

Even by taking these prudent precautions though, you may still get caught by a late spring frost. If you have some advance warning that a frost is coming, here are some steps you can take to protect your plants and flowers:
  • Move potted plants indoors. Potted plants are the most susceptible to frost since their roots are above ground.
  • Water the garden thoroughly before nightfall. The soil will release moisture into the air around your plants during the night, keep the air somewhat warmer.
  • Cover up your plants and flowers before dark! There are a number of commercially available plant frost protection products, but anything you can do to keep the cold air off of your plants will help protect them. Make a tent and cover your plants with some type of lightweight material. Materials that you can use include: newspaper, cardboard, plastic tarps, or bed sheeting.
  • Cover small plants with some type of container such as upside down flower pot, can, bucket, cup or garbage can.
Good Luck and keep an eye on the weather!

Potato Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

Here is a great recipe from the old country. We aren't sure which old country, but it was passed down from Molly's Mother who grew up in the Reading, Pennsylvania area.

This candy is easy to make and will really hit the spot if you have a sweet tooth.

  • 1 sm. potato, boiled & peeled
  • 1-2 lb. pkg. confectioners' sugar
  • Peanut butter
  • Mash potato and start adding the confectioners' sugar.
  • The potato will become almost liquid.
  • Keep adding confectioners' sugar until firm enough to make a large ball.
  • Roll mixture on a pastry sheet.
  • Spread with peanut butter.
  • More confectioners' sugar may be added to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin.
  • Then, roll up as a jelly roll.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour and slice in thin pieces.

Red Indian Summer Raspberry

The whole Pohick family has the gardening bug now. We had so much fun planting our Belle of Georgia Peach Tree, that we decided to plant some other fruit bearing plants. Today, Scribbles and Sarah helped Jake plant two Red Indian Summer Raspberry bushes. Here are some characteristics of the Red Indian Summer Raspberry:
  • Everbearing - This means that it produces two crops per year. First in the spring and then a second crop in the fall. Common raspberry bushes only produce one crop in mid-summer.
  • Scientific Name: Rubus idaeus
  • Wikipedia Article: Raspberry
  • Large, sweet, bright red berries
  • Ideal for cooking or fresh eating
  • Light - 6+ hours of direct sun
  • Water Usage - Semi-Moist
  • Spacing: 5' between plants
  • Growth Rate: Fast
  • Average Size: 5' x 5'
  • Cold Hardiness: -20 to -30
  • Pruning: Cut back in late winter
  • Fertilization: Early Spring
  • The ever bearing raspberry produces an early-summer crop on the previous season's growth and a fall crop on the current season's growth.
  • Raspberries are valuable in home gardens because of the fruits fragile and perishable nature which prohibits the shipping of fresh berries.
  • Health Benefits: Raspberries contain significant amounts of polyphenol antioxidants such as anthocyanin pigments linked to potential health protection against several human diseases. The aggregate fruit structure contributes to its nutritional value, as it increases the proportion of dietary fiber, placing it among plant foods with the highest fiber contents known, up to 20% fiber per total weight. Raspberries are a rich source of vitamin C, with 30 mg per serving of 1 cup (about 50% daily value), manganese (about 60% daily value) and dietary fiber (30% daily value). Contents of B vitamins 1-3, folic acid, magnesium, copper and iron are considerable in raspberries. Raspberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidant strength, particularly due to their dense contents of ellagic acid (from ellagotannins), quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins, cyanidins, pelargonidins, catechins, kaempferol and salicylic acid.
Planting Raspberries:
  • Raspberries grow best in climates where the spring is lingering and slow to warm, but may succeed in warmer climates if the are grown in light shade.
  • A row or hill of raspberries will ordinarily produce good crops of fruit for 10 years or more, before they need replacement.
  • Raspberries grow best in rich,well-drained soil with a pH 6.0 to 6.5. They benefit from supplemental compost and manure. They should NOT be planted in an area where eggplants, peppers, potatoes or tomatoes have been grown within three years, because they are susceptible to verticicillium wilt which is associated with those plants.
  • New plants should be set in the soil about 2 inches deeper than they were originally growing. They should be planted in late fall or early spring about 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart in rows which are spaced about 7 to 8 feet apart. After planting, cut the canes back to 4 inches, leaving the stubs to mark the rows until new sprouts appear. Newly planted summer bearing raspberries should be left alone for the first year to establish themselves, and then cut back to 3-5 canes per plant when the buds begin to show in the following spring.
Care and Cultivation:
  • Raspberry plants should be fed in early spring by scattering all purpose 10-10-10 fertilizer around them at the rate of 1 pound per 10 feet of row.
  • They must not be allowed to dry out during flowering and fruiting. In spring, shorten the canes to 3 feet, forcing the growth into lateral side branches which are trained along support wires.
  • After they produce fruit, the spent canes are cut back to the ground. With ever bearing varieties the second crop is produced on canes which sprout in the spring, these canes shouldn't be cut back until they produce fruit the following spring.
  • Never cut off the new canes which haven't produced yet, they will produce the next years crop.
  • Raspberries are easily propagated by tip layering (pin the tip of the cane to the ground, where it will root, then once rooted you may sever the new start from the parent plant), or from sucker growths which spring up around the parent plant.
Raspberry bushes are available at many local nurseries or even from

Raspberry Journal
  • 20 March 2008: We planted two raspberry bushes today. Each bush is approximately 1 foot tall and has a few small green leaves.

Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who

Today, Jake, Scribbles and Sarah went to see Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who. This movie is based on the Dr. Seuss book, Horton Hears a Who.

Plot: One day, Horton the elephant hears a cry from help coming from a speck of dust. Even though he can't see anyone on the speck, he decides to help it. As it turns out, the speck of dust is home to the Whos, who live in their city of Whoville. Horton agrees to help protect the Whos and their home, but this gives him nothing but torment from his neighbors, who refuse to believe that anything could survive on the speck.

Favorite Quotes:
  • "After all, a person is a person, no matter how small."
  • "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent!"
  • "WE ARE HERE!"
  • "Sweetheart, you need to go to bed. Daddie's having a breakdown."
  • In my world, everyone is a pony, and they eat rainbows and poop butterflies.
  • Horton: They have a mayor who has 96 daughters and one son named JoJo who all share a bathroom!
    Crowd: *Gasp!*
    Horton: Whatever that is.
Review: Our staff gave "Horton Hears a Who" an average score of 8.9 out of 10. Overall, the animation was great and some of the scenes that included water were breathtaking. In a few instances however, there were what one of our reviewers described as random throwbacks to Japanese style animation. Though these instances were probably intended for comedic effect, they were none the less a distraction from an otherwise strong animation effort.

Voices: Horton Hears A Who features the voice talents of the following actors:

Belle of Georgia Semi-Dwarf Peach Tree

Click here for care instructions for the Belle of Georgia Semi-Dwarf Peach Tree.

The Pohick's have planted an orchard. Well, it is currently a decidedly small orchard since it has only one tree. You have to start somewhere though.

When we lived in Oklahoma, we had a peach tree in the back yard which produced some very lovely fruit. The girls loved being able to pick a peach right off of the tree and eat it. Everyone enjoyed all of the fresh peach products that Molly prepared including peach pies, peach cobbler, peach preserves and old fashioned peaches and cream. Since we have moved so many times over the last couple of years, there never was a good occasion to plant any fruit trees. But since we are planning to stay in place for a few years at least, we decided that it would be great to have a peach tree again and planted one today. It will probably be a couple of years before the tree bears much fruit, but it will give us something to look forward to. The tree that we purchased is a Belle of Georgia Semi-Dwarf Peach Tree. Here are a few facts and characteristics of the Belle of Georgia Peach tree:
  • Wikipedia Article: Peach
  • Scientific Name: Prunus persica
  • Light: 6+ hours of direct sun
  • Self fertile - No other pollinator required
  • Spacing: 20'
  • Bloom Time: Spring
  • Water Usage: Semi-Moist
  • Growth Rate: Medium
  • Average Mature Size: 15-20' x 20'
  • Cold Hardiness: -10 to -20F
  • Hardiness Zones: 5-8
  • Pruning: Prune while dormant
  • Fertilization: Annually
  • The Belle of Georgia peach tree in Georgia history was named after Mrs. Belle Hall of Ft. Valley, Georgia, following the Civil War, after it was developed from a peach seedling of Chinese cling-peach seed origin. The legendary Belle of Georgia peach has also been called the Georgia Belle peach and is classified as a white pulp peach, pleasantly fragrant and of intense sweetness and spicy flavor. Very few other white peach cultivars compare with the well known superior characteristics of the Belle of Georgia peach tree. Large trees of Belle of Georgia are recommended to buy, plant, and grow—often bearing a few peaches the first year after planting. The freestone characteristic of the Belle of Georgia white peach makes it easy to eat freshly picked from any home orchard. You can buy Belle of Georgia peach trees from many internet nursery sites. Belle of Georgia is a reliable producer of large, aromatic fruit unsurpassed in sweetness. Pink-blushed freestones with deliciously pale and juicy flesh ripen in August. Resists disease.
