Who’s Roger Swain?
Biologist, gardener, writer and storyteller, Roger Swain was born and
raised outside Boston Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard
College, and went on to earn a Ph.D. , studying the behavior in ants
in tropical rain forests, before becoming Science Editor of Horticulture
magazine. Since 1978 readers have been enjoying Roger’s essays
and articles in that magazine, as well as his five books: Earthly
Pleasures, Field Days, The Practical Gardener, Saving Graces, and
Groundwork. When he is not editing Horticulture, filming the TV
series or meeting with gardeners across the country, Roger can be
found at work in the orchard and gardens of his New Hampshire farm.”

how to keep your facebook timeline sorted ‘most recent’


If you allow fb to take charge of your timeline their sponsored and featured junk will take the place of the things your friends post. There is a way around that – for now.

Simply add these characters to your fb bookmark: sk=h_chr

When you use that bookmark (favorite) you see posts in unbiased order of posting. You still see ads but you prevent fb from throwing out any of your friend’s posts in favor of ads.
