    Grow Lights bought an incandescent grow-light 60 watt bulb at a hardware store for $7.72 for my indoor early starters. Although I have the grow light 3-4 inches above them, they already look a bit spindly. I watered them thoroughly today, removed the plastic cover, and put the grow light closer to them (about 2 inches above them). I am aware of the recommendation for fluorescent lights for seedlings. That will require help from my husband, who hates my gardening, so I thought I'd try the incande...

  • Used As Barriers As The Dancers Fight
    920 words
    Review on Faking It by Motionhouse. Motionhouse created a seductive world of theatrical illusion and deceitful magic, where nothing is quite what it seems, in their production Faking It.

All the above factors give me the impression that the theme is that of breaking away from evil, braking away from an intimidation to ...

  • Light Through A Lens

    Have you ever looked up to the sky at night, and wondered what stars look like up close? Have you ever wondered how astronomers take pictures of other planets with such detail?
