      I went to college in Massachusetts, and after awhile the winters began to get to me. A study-abroad trip to Paraguay helped me fall in love with palms. After I graduated, I explicitly looked for work in areas of the Southeast where I could grow palms, eventually settling in the Midlands of South Carolina (USDA Hardiness Zone 8a), which can grow a reasonable variety (our state tree is the cabbage palmetto, Sabal palmetto, and it is incredibly common in the area). I’ve currently got two potted palms: a European fan palm, Chamaerops humilis, and pygmy date palm, Phoenix roebelenii (the latter needs to be housed in the garage during the winter).

      President Biden's inauguration was on January 20, 2021. This week marks the conclusion of his first 100 days in office.

      I saw this morning that the Washington Post has put out its "Power Rankings" from the outlets various pundits providing their "report cards" on Biden's first 100 days.

      I am interested to see how Tildes has viewed his time in office so far.
