trying to write "Weeding the Spinach." Losing it. Will go nap, then post next rewrite.

OK, I'll bite. What the heck is "Weeding the Spinach?"

Title for my sum-up-for-the-year article for the Los Angeles Maritime Institute's newsletter, of which I am editor. (www.lamitopsail.org is the website.)

Based on an old family story about a city cousin coming to visit, who volunteers to weed the vegetable garden and promptly and with great industry pulls out and discards all the spinach that had been painstakingly planted the week before. This as a great example of what *not* to do as a beginning volunteer.

best,

Joel
