  • The banana tree originated in India and eventually found its way through the tropical regions of the world, namely, Africa, Latin America, Australia and Southeast Asia.

    If you want to get technical however, the banana is not a tree, nor is the yummy yellow edible a fruit. The “tree” is actually a large herb and the banana is seedless and thus, botanically speaking, not a fruit.

  • We are accustomed to seeing pictures of city workers doing a massive cleanup in the wake of a celebratory parade or the return of conquering heroes, but there was no cleanup needed after Pope Benedict XVI left the United States. No litter was strewn along Main Street USA. In fact, his departure was amazingly quiet, at least in this neck of the woods.
