phoned his mother to tell her that he was misbehaving.
"Wait a minute," she said. "I had Johnny with me for three months and I never called you once when he misbehaved!"

The Rules of Sudoku ( s_doku?)
The classic Sudoku game involves a grid of 81
squares. The grid is divided into nine blocks, each
containing nine squares.
P.O. Box 53
The rules of the game are simple: each of the nine Millersville, PA 17551
blocks has to contain all the numbers 1-9 within its
squares. Each number can only appear once in a row,
column or box.
The difficulty lies in that each vertical nine-square
column, or horizontal nine-square line across, within
the larger square, must also contain the numbers 1-9,
without repetition or omission.

Best Times for Lawn Watering
Water your lawn between the hours of 11:00 PM and 5:00 AM when
temperature and wind speed are the lowest to avoid evaporation losses.
Avoid watering during midday hours when it is hot and sunny to prevent
scalding the turf. Avoid watering during rainy or windy weather conditions.
