Mondo Grass, Pythons And A Four-Day Week

Mondo Grass, or Monkey Grass as it’s known down South belongs to the Ophiopogon genus of groundcovers from Asia. However, it is not a grass at all. Mondo is a  member of the lily family. It is mainly used as a groundcover in shady areas, but also serves as fill in between pavers and stepping stones. Mondo grass dos not require mowing.

A python eats humungous (one quarter of their body mass)  but infrequent meals, often months apart. After such a meal, the mass of python’s heart can increase between 30 and 40 percent within two to three days.

According to a Washington Post survey, there are at least 292 U.S. school districts operating on a four-day week. Among them is one in North Branch, Minnesota. Savings are modest at about 2.5 percent of a normal budget, but making the switch last year saved $250,00.
