I had to add a quick note to today's already published post. Here it is October 15th....it is cold and rainy (quite wintry) outside and the prediction is for SNOW!! I can hardly believe it, but it seems that Winter is in the mood to give us a preview. So, in keeping with the climate change.....I fired up the newly built fireplace (which thankfully is working, because it has all sorts of weird catalytic converter parts to it....none of which do I adequately understand). All that matters to me is.....it is WARM and cozy....it crackles and is taking the chill out of the air. Wherever you are....I hope you are warm and cozy too. Now....off to make some hot tea.
