Happy Merry Everything 2022

Well we finally made it home to Florida. It's warmer for sure. There's green leaves on the trees, and sunny blue skies. The usual. The Thanksgiving season is over and we're approaching the winter holidays. My neighbors here have plastic Santas dressed for winter - It's kind of odd, but I get it. Folks down here get cold when the temperature drops below 50 degrees (F). It sorta keeps a smile on your face. People get acclimatized pretty quickly. 50 would be t-shirt weather on the farm about now. It's a bigger world than we imagine sometimes. We've been kinda stuck up north for longer than we intended, but now we're making the rounds to our favorite people and places, doing everything we missed.

Most holidays are dependent upon what part of the world you're in. Countries have their own, regions, and local communities do their own thing uniquely theirs. So it's kind of wonderful to note that the holidays coming up are world-wide.

So wherever you are, however you celebrate, or whatever you celebrate - I'm with you. I wish everyone reading this a joyous time, and look forward to seeing you somewhere sometime. Happy Merry Everything!

Happy New Year 2023!

With less than week left of 2022, it's time to get into the spirit of 2023. While there will no doubt, lots of year in review kind of things will happen shortly. But, for me there's not a whole lot of looking back - Maybe over the last 50 years, but not much this last year. Although covid is still with us, most have moved beyond worrying about it too much. There are sensible means available to mitigate it. Masks are no longer a hot topic, some people wear 'em, and some don't. Aside from covid there's things like the flu where protection makes sense. It's not so political anymore. It was never a political thing for me. It was just common sense.

2023 would be better if more people just used common sense, but for that to happen, the sense has to be common. I remember a time long ago when long hair for men or even mustaches, side burns etc. was a hot topic. We've moved on and now there's a kind of whatever makes you happy attitude - common. We'll see what happens. Many things are really important - until they're not.

With that thought in mind, I wish everyone reading this an important, happy and healthy new year! So far, so good. :)
