When I glanced outside this AM, I noticed the clouds moved in. Going out onto the patio with my first coffee of the day, the air was crisp! How can that be? Yesterday was one of the hottest days we’ve had this summer yet! Signs that summer is coming to a close are looming ahead. […]

Last night I watched this fascinating several part show on TV (through Shaw On Demand) called Walking The Nile. (Amazon affiliate link) It was about a guy that walked along the Nile River, regarded as the longest in the world, from start to finish taking 9 months. 9 MONTHS!
