Looks to me that Meade missed a spot.

"These intellectual guys don't like to have an intellectual conversation with you unless they're running the whole thing. They always want you to shut up when they shut up, and go back to your room when they go back to their room."

There's some very satisfactory autumn wind at 30 seconds into this video (Oct 30).

That was back before the leaves had quite decided where they are going to spend the winter.

Ahh, Americans and their front lawns. You won't understand them as a people until you get that, and all-you-can-eat buffets.

Cheers,
Victoria

"O, Jenny's a' weet, poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry:
She draigl't a' her petticoatie,
Comin thro' the rye!

Comin thro' the rye, poor body,
Comin thro' the rye,
She draigl't a' her petticoatie,
Comin thro' the rye!

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro' the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro' the glen,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need the warl' ken?

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro' the grain;
Gin a body kiss a body,
The thing's a body's ain.

Ev'ry Lassie has her laddie,
Nane, they say, have I,
Yet all the lads they smile on me,
When comin' thro' the rye."

When the wind hits the rye
as the fall breeze blows by,
that's amore.

I happen to know the language of flowers, and grass means grass.

I think Americans are more about their backyards than their front yards (though I rarely set foot in my backyard). As for lawns, around here people are not so lawn crazy. There are lots of gardens and ground cover. And wait til people see what Meade has planned.

"I think Americans are more about their backyards than their front yards."

Doesn't that depend on whether they are "relaxing and/or playing" or "showing off"?

Maybe a better way to state that is "letting their hair down" or "putting their best face forward".
