Digitalis is a genus of about 20 species of herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and biennials that are commonly called foxgloves. It is often prescribed for patients in atrial fibrillation, especially if they have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Some evil people put it in tossed salads to do away with their less than loved ones. "Please pass the Balsamic Vinaigrette" are sometimes the last words uttered from these folks. Speaking of death, on this day in2001 the Polaroid Corporation filed for federal bankruptcy protection. Perhaps not digitalis but digital in general was the cause of their ailments. I used my digital camera yesterday after measuring and choosing a houseful of cellular shades for a great client. They have moved into a home that no longer lends itself to their Farmhouse Country furnishings, some of which I have placed on my website for quick sales. Be good to others, keep the positive energy going and if someone who doesn't have your back offers you a "tossed salad", maybe stick to the soup instead.
