When you look
at a field of dandelions, you probably see weeds. When Peter Gail looks at it,
he sees lunch. USA Today carried the story of the Dandelion Festival in Dover,
Ohio. One enthusiastic participant is Peter Gail, an etho-botanist, who is called
the “wizard of weeds.” He eats 20 dandelions a day. Gail claims that
the dandelion is both healthy and flavorful. Much of our enthusiasm in life
is related to our perspective. Sometimes the weeds can be wonderful.
