Sometimes, looking for new clover cultivars takes a violent turn. In , a Korean team pelted clover plants with gamma radiation during pollination, then bred the resulting plants against each other. One plant produced this way, which they called Jeju Lucky-1 , grew leaves with an extra leaflet around 60 percent of the time.
Take Shigeo Obara, a Japanese man who spent six decades breeding clovers.
He stuck to traditional breeding methods, crossing clovers with extra leaves against each other, and thought that four leaves on a clover was nothing like enough. Around his death, he snagged a Guinness World Record for the most leaves on one clover plant, beating his own previous record—53 more leaflets than the usual.

Short and to the point and brings home how much communication is important in a marriage, and how you should always tell your spouse you love them.

Twenty-five-year-old Mildred Millie Gresham was born a southern belle. Her father had one of the largest plantations in Natchez, Mississippi; that was until he was killed by Yankee soldiers during that war for southern independence. After the war, the slaves, the lands, the fine manor house, wealth, and social position were lost. In short, Mildred Gresham was left with nothing but memories of a time that will never return.
Strangely enough, Natchez Things that remain unsaid will remain unheard. Strangely enough, Natchez was relatively unscathed after the war and many of the fine houses were spared; except the Gresham home. With nothing holding her in Natchez, she moves to Peace, Missouri, a far cry from that bustling port city on the Gulf of Mexico. At thirty-nine, Norman Sterling has achieved almost everything he has set his heart and mind on; almost everything.
When he first glimpsed Millie in town, the sight took him back five years to when he served as a Union officer in the post-war occupation of Natchez. Neither man nor soldier could ignore the most beautiful raven-haired belle of the city. He imagined her as Juliet Capulet and he her Romeo Montague, those two monumental lovers born from the quill of William Shakespeare. That not-quite-forgotten image came crashing back when he spied her here, in his town, in Peace, Missouri. Norman was wealthy, and the respected banker and mayor of this fair city and what more perfect hostess could he ever desire.
Unfortunately, Norman is no man of words.

By rail was laid between St. Louis, Missouri and San Francisco, California. More than two-thirds of the United States was connected by rail.
The eastern third had been completed much earlier, leaving just a few thousand yards uncompleted; over the Mississippi River. The Eads Bridge would change that and truly connect the country by steel. This is not strictly an animadversion but this story could use a proofreader or better editing as quite a few typos clouded my vision. Nov 13, Elodie rated it it was amazing.
I read this story in the Once Upon A Bride bundle. It was also my first read by Cheryl Bolen. It was a cute novella about two people who are unable to express their feelings. Norman has admired from afar Mildred for many years so when she accepted his proposal he was probably more stunned than her. He has put her on a so high pedestal than he worships the ground she walks on but he is unable to let her know he loves her.
Mildred fell in love quickly with her soon-to-be-husband, he is so kind and c I read this story in the Once Upon A Bride bundle. Mildred fell in love quickly with her soon-to-be-husband, he is so kind and caring, but even if in the bedroom, they match, outside, she misses him as he is too busy and she failed to make him understand she just wants him not his money.
