I was reading Earl’s blog the other day about the Cake Lady and the thought suddenly hit me: I haven’t selected my photos for this year’s calendar. I had forgotten all about it. Each year, for the past 3 years, I have made a calendar and sent it to a few friends and family as Christmas presents. Last year it was about my travels; The year before, Arizona/Utah, and before that, vacations and such. When I first thought about it…

Ooh,that’s why I’m easy I’m easy like Sunday morning That’s why I’m easy I’m easy like Sunday morning I wanna be high, so high I wanna be free to know The things I do are right I wanna be free Just me, babe! ~Lionel Richie There seems to be something a little different about Sunday mornings.

As I cruised The Parkway from Asheville…

Ancient tribes held the moon in reverence. Countless songs have been written about it. Mythology is full of references to the moon and creatures that come out during a full moon, others that prefer the darkness of the new moon. There are blue moons, harvest moons, cold winter moons, and moons for every occasion that you can think of. We have sent men to the moon. Somewhere, deep down in us, there is some primal urge, I think, to be…

When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning. A red sunrise reflects the dust particles of a system that has just passed from the west. This…
