25 pounds of Japanese Sweet Potatoes off of one plant.

I never had any of those potatoes.  Cool.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

They have been popular here in Korea during the past several hundred years. They were for the poor like Irish potatoes. They are sweet, but strangely I do not like them.

Anyway, a photo of Nature's Scenery. It is an entrance to my university campus. Of course, I can not hike with the 12-cm (4.7 inch) stilettoes.

I think Ireland is ALWAYS lovely. Such beautiful countryside, especially when the sun is out. But I like cloudy Ireland just as much.

Last year, I planned to stay at UK (Plymouth) for a month, visiting Ireland, too. COVID-19 has mangled all.

Nice to hear from you, Rachel.

Barbie so much has been ruined this year with the virus for sure.
As people from all over the world, forgetting our trans status, we as people cannot continue like this through 2021?.

We have sites to see new people to meet, new conversations to intrigue our minds.
This year has been damaging for so many :(

@Jessica
Dear Jess:
Very pretty picture, but I am jealous.....   
...your pool is not frozen over and your patio and trees are
          not covered in snow.... and is that Blue Sky? ???!!!!
Thank you for sharing your bit of "sunshine" for those of us that are not able to experience it.

HUGS,
Danielle

A camellia blooming in Connecticut!  Most varieties aren't winter hardy.  This one is 8 years old.

They contain a lot of fiber, helping bowel movement, and excellent for diet if you eat a proper amount. Nowadays I also eat one boiled small sweet potato every day. Boiled is better than grilled one for diet.

The name sounds a little bit awkward. Sweet potatoes came from Central and South America. They were later introduced to China, Ryuku, and then Japan in the 17-th century.

I grew them from the ones from our fresh veggies delivery service.  They called them Japanese Sweet Potatoes...who am I to argue?
