A happy and humorous new year to all of you! I would like to start this ISHS 2014 year with the following quote: “The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.” The origin of this quote is unknown. It is ascribed to Alice Morse Earle (1851-1912) a writer who was born in Worcester, Massuchusetts, but some sources say the quote is much older.
