This past weekend, we changed our clocks back one hour.
If you want to read a well written post about the topic, drop over to my friend Jon’s, Antilandscaper blog about Time Zone Funk.
I love that post, but I’d prefer they not change the time twice a year.
Tomorrow we vote, and the ads stop, the mail goes back to nothing but bills, the TV starts selling us Christmas stuff, and the texts and phone calls stop.
Thank goodness, it seems like we’ve been on the political band wagon for way too long.
Janis, at Retirementally Challenged, wrote a historical post on how we earned the right to vote. It is a good refresher on how hard our ancestors worked to earn this right for all of us.
Friday is Veterans Day here in the United States, I send a sincere thank you to every person who has served and for all of their families who supported them during their service.
Freedom is not free, and Veterans Day is a good time to reflect on that.
Our temperatures have been running in the 70’s which is beyond strange for November in New England. Killington Ski Resort in Vermont, about two hours west, is hosting an alpine World Cup in 20 days. They’re hoping for cooler temps so they can fire up more than 100 snow guns to get the slopes ready. Fingers crossed for them.
I’ve been taking advantage of this warmer weather and finishing up a couple more garden projects and, of course, raking a few leaves. Our property backs up to some wetlands. During the summer months, I can barely see in there because of the large trees. Now, that the leaves have fallen off the big trees, the understory is interesting to observe.
There is an interesting photo Zoom class, Snap it and App it, sponsored by University of Delaware MGs. You don’t need to be a MG to sign up for it. It looks like a good learning opportunity so I signed up.
