There was plenty of good food, served easily here where it was prepared, and good talk that lasted long after dinner. Mealtime was a family event, with a few friends asked in to share it.

A healthy percentage of such litigation is based on dog troubles, such as dogbites, dog destructiveness, chicken-killing, trespassing by dogs-- and so on. What's more, some of the judgments are for sums running into four and even five figures-- to say nothing of court decisions that call for destroying the offending animals.

FEBRUARY GARDEN GUIDE

FEBRUARY usually brings a few days suitable for getting outdoor work done. It's well to check your perennials to be sure that the frost hasn't heaved the roots out of the soil. Most of this kind of damage occurs in February or March. Iris, peonies, columbines, foxgloves, and other fleshy-rooted plants-- plus all plants newly set last fall-- are especially likely to suffer. You can prevent injury by applying a mulch to the soil on a day when the soil is still frozen.
