Politics: So Long Gerry

And so an era ends. 93 is a good long time to be on Earth. Rest in peace. I don't know why I have a little soft spot for President Ford. Perhaps because he was from my home state of Michigan. I never cared much for his presidency.

So long James

Happy Solstice

In the dead of winter here in the north daylight is few and far between. Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. I always find myself contemplating new beginnings and the return of the sun at this time of the year. The solstice brings thoughts of joy and rebirth. I know if I just wait for the sun to make it's slow march back to my part of the world, the miracle that is spring will be back once again. I can understand why so many joyous holidays in human history have appeared around this time of the year.

Here's wishing you all a very Happy Solstice.
