Reading, Butterflies and Living Wills

Give me a man or woman who has read a thousand books and you give me an interesting companion. Give me a man or woman who has read perhaps three and you give me a dangerous enemy indeed. Anne Rice, The Witching Hour

Perennials that attract butterflies: Aster, Bee Balm, Coneflower, Dame's Rocket, Hollyhock, Phlox, Sedum and Verbena. Are there any more perennials that you're aware of, we can add to the list?

Living Will
Last night my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, "I never want to live in a vegetative state dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens just pull the plug."
They got up, unplugged the computer and threw out my wine.
