Gardening — March 5

With Betty Ashley | Sunday, March 05, 2017    


Dear Orchid Doc: I find that some of my orchids are starting to get sunburnt in certain areas of the garden. The gardener sprays them between 9:00 and 10:00 am. Is it too hot to spray them at that time? Audrey Dear Audrey: I believe that the sun is probably shifting a bit, so the orchids that were fine in one area will be uncomfortable six months later. What I do is to put a much taller palm in that area to provide shade, because by October it will be time to move the palm again. With r ... Read More

Dylan Coke, gadabout, and occasional lawyer/banker, tells SO all about it... Serendipity is a beautiful thing. Good fortune is what led a son of Switzerland and a daughter of Jamaica, both living abroad, to meet and eventually marry. And Providence surely is what led that same couple, who had fallen in love with Portland some years before, to discover the beautiful Belmont Villa while casually looking at vacation homes on the Internet. The final stroke of good luck was that, on the day they ch ... Read More

Passion Jones

By Sharon Leach | Sunday, March 05, 2017    

The Other Rocky Horror Picture Show 2005 On the night after her 34th birthday, Passion Jones stood in her bedroom. She was dressed only in a creamy lace bra and matching panties and a pair of 3’’ hot pink mules the old movie screen sirens used to wear, the open-toed ones with the dandelion puffs attached to the tops of them. Actually, Passion Jones was standing in the huge walk-in closet, flicking a dispassionate wrist across row after row of trendy (and exceedingly expen ... Read More
