"The flowers of an early spring are a joy to the world."

Forrest Caricofe


**The weather forecast for today is foggy with high and low temperatures of 79° and 61°.

I accomplished a great deal yesterday and need only about 5 more hours to complete the 

seeding of the brown-bare places in the yard. That reminds me. I bought seed packets of 

sunflowers, roma tomatoes and other plants that I also need to plant today along with the

4 perennial fern roots I told you about yesterday. This may take another hour or so.

I'll drive Bill to his appointment with Dr. Kwok later this afternoon and should have time to

complete the above and then take a shower before leaving. 


*7:38 AM 4/26/2017 EDT. Trump tax plan reportedly would cut small business rate to 15 

percent. Fox News - ‎7 hours ago‎.

"President Trump's tax reform plan would cut the top rate for small business owners to 15 

percent from 39.6 percent, an official with knowledge of the plan told the Associated Press 


**If I were a small business I'd certainly celebrate. That's almost a 25% drop. The stock 

market's close yesterday was: 

Dow     +232.23 - 20,996.12 +1.12%

Nasdaq   +41.673 - 6,025.49 +0.70%

S&P        +14.46  -  2,388.61  +0.61%

I would expect that this very good news to the economy and the stock market should 

continue to rise on this news.

*7:52 AM 4/26/2017 EDT. Twitter's revenue growth slowed for the first time last quarter, 

but it still managed to beat expectations across ...

Business Insider - 27 minutes ago.

**Twitter along with Facebook are 2 of the popular social media sites. President Trump 

has 20 million followers on Twitter but reports say that some of them are fake and I don't 

know exactly what that means. I post to Twitter and other social media sites through 


*6:49 AM 4/26/2017 EDT. 2017 NFL Draft: Predictions for This Year's Star Prospects


**Last year's professional football season (2016) saw the the Cleveland Browns (1-15) and 

the San Francisco 49ers (2-14) with the two worse records of the year. Living only 50 miles

south of Cleveland, I tend to root for the Browns. They desperately need a quarterback.

They've tried and gotten rid of Robert Lee Griffin III nicknamed RG3 and Johnny Mansiel. 

Out of the first 32 picks Rob Goldberg predicts the following:

1 Cleveland Browns                                Myles Garrett DE Texas A&M                   

12 Cleveland Browns (from Eagles)          Deshaun Watson QB Clemson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Deshaun Watson. He played college football at Clemson. 

Born: September 14, 1995 (age 21 years), Gainesville, GA.

Height: 6′ 3.″

Weight: 220 lbs.

He is big enough. The question is will he be good enough? My prediction for the Browns in 

this upcoming 2017 NFL season: 6 wins and 10 loses certainly not good enough to make 

the playoffs.

*9:09 AM 4/26/2017 EDT. China launches first domestically-made aircraft carrier.

Fox News - ‎2 hours ago‎.

**"China launched its second aircraft carrier—and the first one entirely home-built—taking 

another stride in its quest for a world-class navy that can protect Chinese economic and 

security interests far from its shores."

The United States has 10 aircraft carriers with 2 in reserve with 56 decommissioned and 2 

under construction. China has 2 in service and 2 under construction. Italy has 2 in service.

India and the United Kingdom have have 1 in service and 2 under construction and 

surprisingly Russia has 1 in service and 1 under construction. Spain has 1 in service and 1

in reserve. Brazil, France and Thailand each have 1 in service.

There is no doubt who rules the oceans in our world.
