Is there any edible winter berry?

How about trying Pyracantha for edible berries? Bitter but you can make a jam.

Or, Aronia Melanocarpa (Chokeberry) which makes a nice jam and feeds the birds too, not to be confused with Prunus Virginiana aka Chokecherry which is also edible when fully ripe or can be made into jams. Sambucus nigra, Elderberry, makes a great cough syrup, wine or jam and feeds the birds as well in summer. Elderberry likes its roots near run-off or a stream but in a sunny spot. Lycium barbarum (Goji), Hippophae rhamnoides (Seaberry) and Vaccinium vitis-idaea (Lingonberry) or Viburnum trilobum (American highbush cranberry) may be worth a try. Jeannie at

Why are cranberries floated on water?

There was actually a tidbit about this on the Discovery Channel. Cranberries are grown in a ground depression because harvesting is easier when they ripen. Basically, when harvest season arrives, the harversters flood the basin with water (to just over the tops of the plants). There is a machine that works as an agitator, and shakes the cranberry plants under water, to where the Cranberries themselves shake free from the plant. Cranberries are *bouyant* and float to the top of the water. When this happens, harvesters can use T-shaped (squeegy on a long handle looking) tool that gathers all the Cranberries to one end of the pool, and then scooped into a box or onto a conveyer belt. This process saves a lot of money on man hours as well as BenGay for sore backs. Cheaper goods is supposed to mean less cost to consumers.

Where can you find a list of all the different types of degrees you can receive?

Do you mean majors, or fields of study, or types of bachelor degrees, masters...? If you mean majors or bachelor degrees, general lists can be found in college prep books (from the library, etc.). However, different colleges have different terminology and offerings, so it would be best to check with individual schools, as well. For example, my major in college was technically "Human Development and Family Processes" but my undergradute degree is listed as "Individual and Family Studies" and my title is a Bachelor of Science in Human Resources. You may have to check severla places to get the full picture - I don't know of one place that complies every single type of degree.
