What You Can Do With The Next Five Minutes

It's hard to write about the mundane.  The world is going through one of those what's next moments, and my posts on what I've planted and what I've seen and what I've read just don't seem to rise to the occasion.

So, I'd like to ask you to take the time you'd usually spend reading The Burrow and contact your Senators.

Applaud them, chastise them, make your voices heard.

If you want a script, click here.

Thanks.  I won't take up any more of your time.

  4. Thank you for reminding me to email my two New Jersey Senators and thank them for their votes. I know that the NRA people are chastising them, so it is doubly important to support them.
