Giant Puffball Mushrooms every year.

This is the giant puffball mushroom growing in my backyard. Several of them come up every autumn in my backyard by one particular tree.  I had been throwing the mushrooms away because I assumed they were poisonous.  I finally looked up what type of mushroom I had and it sure looks like a giant puffball which is good eats when it is a little younger than this one.  Jo, my native american neighbor confirmed that this was a giant puffball. She gathers and eats them every year.  Wikipedia says they are making some new type of cancer medication out of these type of mushrooms and I have seen them sold on the internet for an interesting amount of money for culinary purposes.  I may not have a green thumb but I can't slow these fungi down or kill them even if I try.  They come up every autumn like clock work.

Welcome to the new reader from Romania on the blog!  Please leave a comment on the blog and let me know what type of content you like.  Most of the readership is from the United States but I enjoy getting readers from a distant country.  I like to welcome readers from new countries when I see the country on the blogger statistics page.

CBS - Trump Endorsed by Retired Military

Donald Trump was recently endorsed by at least 88 retired Generals and Admirals in an open letter.  I watched CBS coverage of this endorsement on the nightly news and they seemed to imply that the retired military leaders did not have combat experience. That sounds like pure bull manure to me.  I find it very difficult to believe that none of these leaders had any combat experience.  I may not be the Donald's biggest fan but I think that slur's like this against people who served their country deserve a retraction and an apology.  Donald Trump should at least be given equal time on CBS to say whatever he wants to about this incident.   I may even consider voting for Donald just because I don't like liberal propaganda.
