How to Find “Find My Friends” on iOS 13 Update

Don’t you just love it when you’re forced into an update and stuff stops working or, in the case of the latest iPhone update, apparently goes missing?

What to Do With a Bumper Crop of Asian Pears

While this year has seen some damages to some of my fruit trees–I lost all my plum trees and one cherry tree–I continue to get a bumper crop of Asian Pears.

My three trees are bearing so many pears this year that I had to pick at least half before they were fully ripe to prevent the branches from breaking from the weight. Even with that, I lost one limb in a windstorm.
