I’m going to try to start a new goal of adding something everyday which I find through Stumble Upon. I rave about Stumble Upon all the time – it educates me, it keeps me up to date with the news, it makes me laugh…stumble upon really is a great tool for discovering everything and anything. So since so many people seem to still not use it, I might as well use my experience of it as a means for bringing together the stuff that I like.
So welcome to my first “Favourite Stumble of the Day”

An old Italian man lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden; but it was very difficult work as the ground was hard.
His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:
I am feeling pretty sad, because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days.
A few days later he received this letter from his son:
Dear Pop, Don’t dig up that garden. That’s where the bodies are buried.
At 6 am the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Pop, Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
