An English In Kentucky

    Always tricky to think about rain, but March and April need rain. Not that four inches in half an hour rain, but the long, slow drizzle of a potato rain.

    The kind of rain that brings on slime mold and sends a person to his dictionary of epithets. The kind of rain that turns the mind to snails and heliciculture.

     Last year March was good, April was dry.  In early May nine inches of rain fell in weekend.  And then rain pretty much went away.  Difficult to know what might happen this year.

    In Britain Escargot have been called  "Wall Fish".  Neither fish nor flesh. The observant Christian was permitted to eat snails through Lent, which this year is March 9th through April 23rd.
