"The resonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." George Bernard Shaw

Yes, Diane I agree that it depends on what you consider progress,the local news paper considers progress the new shopping centers, the new bypasses. And yes Sojourner what they call progress has gone on too long.Well, I think that true progress now, is the farmer who dares to be organic, the home gardener who dares to grow without chemicals. By being organic gardeners we are not adapting to the world that is around us but insisting that it can be more natural.I know many people who think that I am being unreasonable when I refuse to use sprays so I am going to accept my unreasonableness as PRoGress! If I save one butterfly, one bird, if I let one wild flower remain,then to me that is Progress! I will not adapt to todays standards! Tren

nice quote trendle. . .

and will it ever come in handy! Next time my wife asks me "Why do you have to be so unreasonable"?, I can answer "Because mankind is depending on me"!
