Howell Lacy - Obituary - Legacy.com

These attributes were put to good use…first on Model A and Model T Fords, and later on his "first class" restorations of Austin Healeys. In the years between, Kent's driveway and garage were always occupied by something unique and unusual. Aided by his background in art and architecture during his tenure at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and Old Dominion University, he turned all of his cars into works of art. Influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, Kent always favored "sleek, clean lines" over "things that look like they were made with a hatchet". In the 1970's, during Kent's stint at Everett-Waddy as a draftsman, one of his bigger projects was the interior design of the Norfolk International Airport. "Lacy" was a true Renaissance man. In addition to his grasp of art, architecture, and automotive, he was a pilot in the Navy. He continued to fly and work on his own planes post his term of service. He was an avid fisherman - fly-fishing and bass fishing in particular. He could surprise you with a classical guitar rendition of "Malaguena" if you asked him, and he was hands down the best girls' softball coach anywhere. Kent was known as a private person, but there was no hiding that mischievous look in his eye, or his rebellious streak. He was passionate, irreverent, funny, extremely smart, and fiercely loyal to those he loved. Kent, like his beloved Healeys, was an original - through and through. He ...

Gardening: Tips for growing tropical and exotic fruit trees in Southern California

Another strategy for growing tropicals in the Valley," Ash added, "is to locate an appropriate spot on your property that affords frost protection. Planting out in the open on flat ground is not recommended." Macadamia nut trees are native to tropical Australia as are finger lime (Microcitrus australasica) trees. I had never heard of or seen finger limes before and they are truly a marvel to behold. The fruits, which are ripening now, are 2-3 inches in length, deep purple in color when ripe and, when split open, full of clear vesicles that will remind you, by their size, color, and shape, of caviar. These vesicles are easily squeezed out of the surrounding skin and, when applied to your tongue, yield a tart flavor that has been compared to that of a lime. Finger limes are popularly used for livening up fish dishes, especially sushi, and certain cocktails. I was delighted to learn from Ash that there are sweet cherry varieties that will produce in our area. These are being grown at his Chatsworth nursery. To be fair, they require a good 400 hours of winter chill (hours below 45 degrees) to flower and fruit the following spring so some winters will yield a good crop but warm winters will not. You will need to plant two different varieties – ‘Minnie Royal' and ‘Royal Lee' – together to maximize fruit on each since they are excellent pollenizers of each other. Note: There is a head gardener position currently available at the Getty Museum Grounds and Gardens Department. The work is full time and the compensation is $24.16 per hour. For more information, contact Brian Houck at bhouck@getty.edu. Tip of the Week: I asked Ash about the watering regime for tropical trees. "During the summer, trees are deep soaked in average draining soil twice a week. In winter, the water is shut off. Where new trees are planted, I install a single spray sprinkler or bubbler attached to a double swivel elbow so I can bring the sprinkler close to the ground. As the tree grows, I raise the sprinkler so that more area, accommodating a larger root system, is covered. With small orchards, underground pipe is installed with sprinklers or bubblers next to each tree. With large orchards, drip irrigation with tubing that runs along the soil surface is more sensible." ...

South Africa: Flower Seller Wants to See Business Blossom Again

That was in the 1970s, and Adderley Street looked very different," Bowman recalls.She points at the Standard Bank and Stuttafords buildings, which she remembers from when she was first put in charge of the family business."And there was plenty of parking for customers, not these bicycle lanes en al die kak (and all this shit)."The flower market was much bigger; 55 stalls, if she remembers correctly."Now it's just us few left. All the business we enjoyed those years is gone. Big shops like Woolworths now sell flowers too, and people can get it on credit. Hier by ons kan jy nie swipe nie (Here you can't swipe). And junk status, inflation en al daai stront (and all that nonsense) affects us too."Years ago, R10 could get you " moerse (massive) bouquets", but those days are long gone."We don't make big profits, only a few rand here and there. But this is what I know - I do it because I love it," Bowman says.A discerning businesswoman, Bowman doesn't mind giving a discount or an extra flower or two to her less privileged customers."But I am not negligent. I must put a loaf of bread on the table."A haggler tries to score a better deal with Bowman, who gives him a dirty look." Loop kak, man. Jy vat nou kanse (Get lost, man. You're taking chances)," she tells him sternly.He stops negotiating and settles for her original price.She leaves her Grassy Park home at 05:45 every morning, commuting by train to the market.She does not have fixed business hours, staying as late as midnight if business looks good.The local suppliers from whom her relatives bought their stock fled the country in 1994, "when Nelson Mandela and the ANC took over"."They emigrated, along with a lot of my customers. Now I get my flowers from Johannesburg."While this is expensive, she says, it is still the most cost effective way to run her business."Just for the box and to get it here costs me R105. Then I must still pay for the actual flowers," she explains.Her profit is small but, along with the income of her partner who held a casual job as a driver, it was enough to raise her son and daughter - now 30 and 35."I also sold clothes and food to pay for their studies. I used my head, not my naat (buttocks)," she cackles.Her business has given her so much joy that she feels a... (AllAfrica.com)
