Good morning, org,

Even though it's Halloween, no getting ready for trick-or-treaters here. Our house sits about 800 feet off the road and is shielded somewhat by woods. In the 30+ years we've been in this house, we have never had even one Halloween visitor. Oh, well; that's the way it is!

Have a fun, safe day!

On this date, in 1517, Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Palace church, marking the start of the Protestant Reformation in Germany.

Welcome to Friday, MidnightSun! And are they really free?
The probability is low for Saturday morning here!
I hear you on the lite market!
Make this a delightful day!

Happy Halloween!

Good morning org!

Have to figure no that much is free anymore. Can count free on one's fingers.

High probability of snow on Sat overnight into Sunday. Ready and able. Not willing.

Left nice and early for the market. The drive beside the CT River was serene w/o one vehicle in site in either direction. Too bad there was heavy overcast. The reflections in the still river was picturesque. The trees reflected perfectly in the still waters. The reflections a mirror.

Bought lightly at the market. Had lots of veggies remaining from the week before. Both lemons (huge ones) and limes are 5/$1, 2 butternut squash, 8 lbs at 48¢ a lb were $3.84, Driscoll strawberries $2 for 1 lb, and red bell peppers $1.75 a lb. Big Papa's Mkt (Click on "See more") has excellent low prices and produce 1 day just harvested and driven up from Boston in the wee hours.

Was going to visit my pal at Rite Aid, he car was not there so he wasn't either, Went to WM for a few items and then to Shaw's. Grabbed the wrong 8 oz bags of spinach that were on sale for $1.

Was amazed the experienced Front End Mgr, that took over the cashier's spot, had a lot of trouble crediting my account for the spinach. It was a 12 minute experience. Told her my hip cartilage is worn and she was nice enough to exchange the spinach in produce for me.

Returned home to clean up the ribs out of the crock pot, pour the homemade BBQ sauce into a cottage cheese container and freeze it. Coating the cleaned crock w/evoo added 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts ($1.77 a lb!)

Much of the in stock green beans were added, all the Brussels sprouts, 6 massive carrots, an onion, 6 cloves of garlic and two yams. Barely room for all of this. Glad it is a 6 quart crock pot. 4 hours on high and she is ready.

Then slices of a chicken breast were cubed, onion, carrots, celery sliced and simmered for an hour. Then wheat spaghetti in 1½" lengths were added and cooked for 12 minutes.

A ½ cup of milled flax seed, which thicken up soup and gravies wonderfully was added. Made 2 quarts of chicken soup for a snack of for brekky. Noticed this homemade soup is allowing me to drop some pounds nicely.

Civil twilight is 6:52 AM EDT. Night is 6:07 PM.

Sunrise: 7:22 AM. Set: 5:36 PM.

Length of day: 10h 14m. Length of visible light: 11h 15m. Tomorrow will be 2m 45s shorter.

The temp is 36° (2°C), the high will be 49° (9°C), in partially cloudy skies.

Have a delightful day!

Claudie, Very slim chance of snow.
Hope you expected day of short and sweet, was so!

TUrtLE, The sea stars were so abundant, that everyone one was a star!

Good Morning org,
I don't pick either one.

Juvenile sea stars on the Florence jetty, the county to my south.

Highlights from the article.

Divers in the Pacific Northwest faced a gruesome landscape over the past few months. Sea stars, stricken with a wasting syndrome whose cause has puzzled scientists across the globe, were disintegrating arm by arm into pale piles of gelatinous goo.

A glimmer of hope appeared on Florence’s North Jetty this month in the form of juvenile stars. An aquarium volunteer first noticed the tiny invertebrates during a recreational dive. She let the Aquarium know and a team was deployed the next day to survey the area.

The aquarium Safety Officer who led the science dive team said, “It was overwhelming, when we first got down there it looked like the rocks were covered with barnacles. We soon realized those white spots were thousands and thousands of stars. I have never seen them in numbers like that, it was pretty incredible.”

The thumbnail-sized juveniles were so abundant, as many as 202 in a square meter, that divers had to change their survey technique to get an accurate sample of the stars’ numbers before they ran out of air.

This may be the first sign of recovery in Oregon, where sea star wasting syndrome has ravaged local star populations.

Thousands of juvenile starfish, offspring of those who died off during recent “wasting” episode along the coast.

Have a Thankful Thursday!

Good morning, org,

The possibility of snow for your area?

Raisins? I think I'll just throw them into some cooked oatmeal instead.

My agenda for this morning....chiro, Mom's, gas station, home. :) Hopefully, short and sweet.

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

Ben was The Man!

Woke up for the day at 1 AM. Not bad at all. Made a 4 berry combo w 2 fresh berries and two frozen ones. Poured in 1% milk added raisin bran and had a feast before 1:30 AM.

After my rounds the thought of getting skinless boneless chicken breasts for $1.77 a pound became overwhelming. Since it was raining lightly for hours, took the short drive to my home town Shaw's.

Bought a pkg of 6 breasts at the advertised $1.77 a lb and saw that 8 ozs of spinach was on sale for the week for $1 ea. Reg cost at Shaw's is a whopping $3.49 for an 8 oz bag. Unreal! A 2.5 lb bag is $6 every week at the mkt.

Stopped for my mail at the P.O. Getting bills is no fun for me. Almost drove to my pal's Mac's Mkt in Whitefield. No need to go as their sales were seen in the free newspapers . Will stop in Friday or the w/e to see if the are new specials for the week.

Discovered a new movie and TV series site. ShareTV offers free HD pix w/stereo sound of the latest movies and TV series for the entire year. ShareTV does not stock a cpmplete library like Putlocker.is does.

Yet some of Putlockers movies are far from HDShareTV is Free w/o having to register. Draw back is there are commercials, 4 & 5, one after the other.

Civil twilight is 6:49 AM EDT. Night is 6:09 PM.

Sunrise: 7:19 AM. Set: 5:39 PM.

Length of day: 10h 17m. Length of visible light: 11h 17m. Tomorrow will be 2m 45s shorter.

The temp is 34° (1°C), the high will be 47° (8°C), w/further overcast.

Have a fantastic day!

Good Morning org,
I didn't think about that, the automation. My mind set hasn't caught up with the 22nd century. (Not a typo)

It's almost time for Halloween and as happens every year at the Oregon Zoo it was the squishing the squash party by the elephants the other day.

The video is 2 min. in length. I would suggest you view the first minute and watch Lily the baby elephant as she climbs on top of one of the pumpkins. The largest pumpkin weighs in at 1,266-lbs.

Happy Wednesday!

Good morning, org,

Hmmmm, raisins on a banana? Maybe. Interesting.

Oh, boy! Is the weather ever supposed to change today! Going from temps in the high 70s (the past few days) to highs only in the mid-60s! Quite a change! Looking forward to it, though. :)

Oooops! I made a boo-boo yesterday and left the wrong link to Noah's Ark! :( Here's the right one.....Noah's Ark, and would you look at that! There's one of TUrtLE's relatives right on their home page! :)

Today I'll be going to the stores and that'll be about it. :)

Just an early reminder....this weekend's when we turn our clocks back an hour.

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

It must be my long tan colored ears that cause a hunter to pull the trigger. Staying inside is a good thing. Just two more months. Life is Grand. "Beer is proof God loves you and wants you to be happy" -- Ben Franklin.

Woke up at midnight Tuesday morning. Thought rolling over would get me back to sleep. It did not. Got up had a slice of pizza w/added mushrooms, diced spinach, w/pepperjack cheese and returned email messages that were rec'd.

Watched Criminal Minds and the 4th episode of season 1 of The Continuum. The viewers of this sci-fi series give this show a 91% approval. Am liking this show a bundle.

Then did my rounds and posts while fatigue set set at the end. The early morning wake got to me 7 hours later. Turned in and was surprised to have slept 3 solid hours. Good, just what was needed.

Went out for a wildflower patch inspection. They looked great. They are blooming and many are dif purple types not seen in these parts. Will eventually upload the pix/Have been slacking for weeks.

Durn damp and cold outside. Temp was 45 (C) just after it stopped raining, just after 11 AM. Real raw outdoors, right to the bone. Returned inside to play some StarCraft II and get lost in time for 3 hours.

It is going to be a while to get used to the coming winter. In fact our Mt Washington and the Presidential Range has 2 inches of snow depth from the other day. Will most likely see snow in the valley Friday evening into Sat morning. Don't expect much, yet am ready for a 3 foot blizzard.

Tonight is the last time the ISS orbits over the East Coast for a while. In my area it will be seen at 6:48 PM . Easily seen w/the naked eye, watch the ISS and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:49 AM EDT. Night is 6:09 PM.

Sunrise: 7:19 AM. Set: 5:39 PM.

Length of day: 10h 20m. Length of visible light: 11h 20m. Tomorrow will be 2m 48s shorter.

The temp is 39° (4°C), the high will be 58° (14°C), w/a 50% chance of rain

Have a wonderful day!

G00d Evening, Claudie, TUrtLE1625 and Farful!

Claudie, G00d news about your late morning dentist appointment, not so g00d about your 'regular' dentist for some 'exploring.'?
I knew about raisins but not more than bananas; maybe ants on a log (raisins on the banana) would be g00d!!
Hope Mom's trip to Noah's Ark was "unsinkable"!

TUrtLE, I think the counting of pumpkin seeds is automated now!
The Pelicans l00ked like they have been in that situation before!

Good Morning org,
There were more facts I didn't include, but none of those. I wonder who had nothing to do but count pumpkin seeds.
I don't usually post anything political, but what comes to mind is someone receiving a Government grant to count seeds.

We had quite the wind and rain storm on Saturday.
The following photos with captions from Ken Gagne were posted on the county web site.

Pelicans out there…lookin’ pretty grumpy!

These pelicans don’t need storm warning signs to tell ‘em which way the blows!

Bumper to bumper traffic just trying to stay warm!

Good morning, org,

My late morning dentist appointment went alright, but he found something else, so now I have to go back to my 'regular' dentist for some more 'exploring.' :( That appointment has been made for next Thursday. For the other dentist (the one I saw yesterday), I go back in early December for a check-up.

When I talked to Mom yesterday afternoon, she told me that the head cook (who likes Mom) is trying to get some more rich-in-potassium foods/drinks to/for her. :) I didn't know this, but raisins have waaaaay more potassium in them than bananas do! So looks like Mom could be eating more raisins, which she DOES like. Yay!

Speaking of Mom, I'll be taking her to the store this morning, just a little earlier than I usually do. That's b/c we want to make sure she gets back home before they take a trip to Noah's Ark. They've been there before for a picnic and a visit with some of the animals. Mom's hoping for the same, but a visit to see MORE of the animals! It'll be a fun trip for them again. :)

Have a great day!

Does a great man speak the right words? Or, do the words make a great man?

77!!

Another early to rise morning, slept until 1 AM. Enjoyed the posts and completing my rounds early yesterday. Seems the servers of GB determine if the posts go slow or fast. Some posts still hang on occasion. A page test to another other site sees rapid page response.

Delighted in learning more about the StarCraft II tutorial and learning about how each new soldier and war machines fight and their weapons used. The symphony orchestra music is superb and the graphics continue to astonish with bright colors and details. Here is a screenshot.

The war made me fatigued. Laid down and got in a two needed nap. My eyes and mind were tired. They felt great after the rest. Had a fresh four berry combo w/Raisin Bran and 1% milk.

Went outdoors to look at the gardens. Temp was 41° (5°C) and the humidity was 82%. Cold and raw to the bone. When the crisp sound of rifle fire, about ½ mile away was heard, decided to return to the house.

In northern NH hunting season began Sept 1 and rifle deer hunting ends Dec 15. Think it best the remain inside. No need for a hunter to explain to the Fish & Game Dept and S.P. what part of me looked like a deer.

The ISS obits the East Coast at 6:00 tonight in my area. See the ISS and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:48 AM EDT. Night is 6:11 PM.

Sunrise: 7:18 AM. Set: 5:41 PM.

Length of day: 10h 22m. Length of visible light: 11h 22m. Tomorrow will be 2m 48s shorter.

The temp is 38° (3°C), the high will be 58° (14°C), w/a 70% chance of partial sun.

Have a fabulous day!

Good morning, org,

I talked to Mom yesterday afternoon, and she seems to be back to her ol* self. That sure is a relief!

I think we've been having Indian summer these last few days and including today; temps have been about 10° warmer than normal for this time of the year (in the high 70s/low 80s). Supposedly that'll end after today and the temps will get back into the low-to-mid-70s where they belong. Looking forward to the cooler temps again. At least it's also been sunshiny with just about no clouds in the sky at all; just a gorgeous blue, blue sky! :)

Late this morning, I am having some dental work done; according to the dentist, it shouldn't take to long to do. Sure hoping so. :)

Have a great day!

Good Morning org,
How about that!

Yesterday was National Pumpkin Day. Nothing says we can't celebrate it today.

Some facts about pumpkins.

It is the perfect time of the year to celebrate National Pumpkin Day.
Pumpkin (squash) is native to North America.

The ol*est evidence of pumpkin-related seeds dates back to somewhere between 7000 and 5500 BC and were found in Mexico.

The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for “large melon”.

Within the past 10 years, white pumpkins have become more popular in the United States.

1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced in the United States each year.

In September 2012, Ron Wallace’s 2,009 pound Atlantic Giant pumpkin in Rhode Island set the current world record.

Canned pumpkin may be recommended by veterinarians as a dietary supplement for dogs and cats that are experiencing certain digestive ailments.

Help yourself to a pumpkin choc chip cookie.

Yum!

Good morning org!

No thinking, not family values, no proper upbringing. "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting." --Buddha

Woke up at 1 AM yesterday nicely refreshed from a fine night of sleep. Soon afterwards a severe downpour arrived. Can not tell how much rain as the site used for the weather is having T.D's. Even backed up my work in case the power went off. Was happy the heavy rain lasted only 8 minutes.

Had a lot of joy playing Starcraft and then relaxing watching some TV shows on Netflix.

Made my own BBQ sauce using the following:
        1/2 cup brown sugar
        1/4 cup ketchup
        1/4 cup soy sauce
        1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
        1/4 cup rum
        1/2 cup chili sauce
        6 cloves garlic, crushed
        1 tsp dry mustard
        1 dash ground black pepper, or
        1/2 tsp Mrs dash.

Added this sauce to the St Louis pork ribs after trimming as much fat as possible. Added evoo to the 6 qt crock pot and cooked all for 3.5 hours that keeps the meat attached. And extra 30 minutes cause the meat to fall off the bone.

Enjoyed a 1 for lunch. Then drove to Shaws for more ribs. Purchased the baby back ribs this time. Either are on sale this w/e only for $2.88. Also bought and Essential 32 oz Supreme pizza for $3.99.

Also bought Hood® Maine Blueberry & Sweet Cream 1.5 quart of ice cream for $1.99. Too low a price to let pass. Also noted one company's big pie selection was $3.99 for a 8" until 1/1/15. They even have squash pie that is low fat, sodium, and salt.

Returned home, removed the previous ribs in a Pyrex glass 2 qt bowl and sliced the butternut squash in half. It was bought on Thursday 3.26 lbs for $1.56 at Big Papa's Mkt.

Added it to the crock pot and let the works slow cook for 4 hours. Delish! The BBQ sauce will be saved in the freezer for another day.

Watched the Pats trounce the Bears via replays on NFL.com and ESPN.com. The Pats are now 4-0 at home w/a 6-2 record.

The ISS does not obit the East Coast tonight in my area. See the ISS and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:46 AM EDT. Night is 6:12 PM.

Sunrise: 7:16 AM. Set: 5:42 PM.

G00d Evening, Claudie, TUrtLE1625 and Farful!

Claudie, v on fine and dandy!
Sorry about the Falcons and the Panthers losing today!

TUrtLE, Your video was very timely, as I just got back from celebrating our aunt and uncle's 70 wedding anniversary!

Farful, It's the battery, I think!

Good afternoon org_elizard and All!
 
Org, Gunfights do not always turn out well.
 
Hate it when the mower will not start. Did you check the oil and gas?
 
Happy Sunday!

Good Morning org,

Your Sunday movie is Love Songs performed by BJ Morbitzer.

From the website by Steve Politte, "I made this video in honor of B.J. Morbitzer's 70th birthday on the Sunday, October 26. Two beautiful Love Songs as performed by him, in one video. Happy Birthday B.J. God bless and enjoy."

You may want to listen as you post or simply take time out to listen to the music. If you don't have 6 minutes then listen to as much as you have time for. It's up to you if you either watch or pass on the graphics.

Enjoy~

Good morning, org,

Hubby talked to Mom yesterday. He said she said she sounded just fine and dandy. :)

Daughter said the team that Emma cheers for won their football game, 26-7 (or something like that). Looks like this little team could be off to the play-offs!

Oh! I see the Panthers play Seattle today. Good luck to them (your team, that is)!

Well, today's going to be just a tad different, as far as the Falcons' game goes. You see, they are playing against the Detroit Lions in London! The game starts at 2:30 PM London time, and that's...9:30 AM ET!! Oh, my! What a crazy time for a football game! Other than watching the game, well, that'll pretty much be it for this day!

Have a great day!

On this date, in 1881, Wyatt Earp, his two brothers, and Doc Holliday were involved in the gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona.

Welcome to Sunday, MidnightSun and Jeannemarie!

MidnightSun, They are not thinking, that's the problem!
Many g00d deals found!
Glad the Sun decided to make an appearance!
Make today, a splendid day!

Jeannemarie, G00d Morning!

Good morning org!

Am saddened that today's students would even think to harm others. Remember "Love thy neighbor."

Enjoyed the 2nd episode of the Continuum TV series on Netflix. The pilot sure got me hooked. A female detective from the year 2077 finds herself trapped in 2012 Vancouver. She is searching for 8 ruthless terrorists that escaped from the future. It is quite convincing.

Visited WM online and looked for WM's sesame seed oil and low salt soy soy sauce. Excellent prices,. e.g. their 5 oz of sesame oil is just $3.48. Only problem is it is not eligible for free shpg unless $50 is spent.

Drove to the WM store to ask the dept mgr if that WM store sold sesame oil and low sodium soy sauce. They have one off brand of soy. Had the CSR at the return desk phone the closest Super Store in Woodsville. Their usual stocked 7 (or 17) oz is sold out. Sure glad a special trip was not done.

Visited my palthe mgr at Rite-Aid in Littleton. Have bought a 12 pack of 4 kinds of different ale from the Long Trail Brewery (VT) in a 'Survival Pak.' One was named 'Sick Day.' It is a very delish beer. Returned to get the new brew 12 pack that is usually $14.49 sold to me for $12.99.

Returned to Big Papa's Mkt to get more yams that the growers print "sweet potatoes" on the boxes, yet are true yams. TUrtLE pointed this out. The 54¢ a lb is the lowest cost ever seen in modern times.

Also wanted some spinach, 1 lb for $3, 2.5 lbs for $6. This was already sold out. Did get some butternut squash for 48¢ a lb and some snow peas, 1 lb for $3.50.

The sun showed it warming power w/many wearing shorts and tee shirts. This writer included. Nice to be able to sit in the sun back home near the forest edge and soak up some vitamin D while reading.

The high made me content and reached 57° (14°C). Days of wearing shorts and tee shirts are coming to an end. Now back to a full week of overcast.

The ISS orbits early (6:51 PM) on the East Coast for those who can see it. See this and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:45 AM EDT. Night is 6:14 PM.

Sunrise: 7:15 AM. Set: 5:44 PM.

Length of day: 10h 28m. Length of visible light: 11h 28m. Tomorrow will be 2m 51s shorter.

The temp is 45° (7°C), the high will be 47° (8C) w/a 50% chance of rain.

Have a splendid day!

Claudie, Glad to here yesterday was g00d!
No special plans? Staying home and chance for porch time today, sounds like a plan to me!

Farful, Only mowed part of lawn today; riding mower would not start! Had to leave the leaves alone!

Org, UN may have been able to help keep the wars to a minimum.
 
It has been a pleasant afternoon to complete yard work. Got more leaves picked up and lawn looks good again.
 
Have a sensational Saturday!

Good morning, org,

It was a good day yesterday. :)

No special plans to go out anywhere today. Hubby and I won't be going to Emma's 2nd-to-the-last cheer game; it's about an hour away again (like last week). We'll just be staying home. Might even get in some porch time today. :)

Have a great day!

On this date, in 1415, the Battle of Agincourt between England and France during the Hundred Years War took place.

Welcome to Saturday, MidnightSun! Amen to that!
It is a shame what goes on in the minds and how they act on it for some, these days!
We may see the 70's again this weekend!
Make it a tremendous day!

Good morning org!

Will say lots of rain exceeds lots of snow. No outage. Am very thankful.

My heart and prayers goes out to the families of the Marysville, WA H.S. shootings. Two dead, four victims in critical condition. Never will understand what goes thru a 14 y/o pupil's (anyone's) mind to harm innocent students. This from his g/f breaking up w/him? How could this become the new norm? Am deeply saddened by yet another US school shooting. The list astounds.

Completed my rounds and posts early and enjoyed learning more of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Looks like this will be the perfect game to play in the winter and during snow storms.

Took the drive to Whitefield to visit my pal the meat cutter at his store. No super deals, even tho split chicken breasts were $1.69 a lb. An older woman slipped and feel on the waxed vinyl floor tiles. Thankfully she was not injured and got up on her own.

Returned to Lancaster and headed north of US Rt 3 to the Town of North Umberland. Have not been there in 3 years, even tho it is but 5 miles north of downtown Lancaster.

Ocean's Job Lot, a Rhode Island based discount store is located there in the old Ames building. Had hoped that sesame oil was stocked. No such luck. Saw a few food items that gathered my interest, yet nothing was purchased.

Back to Shaw's in Lancaster revealed that their Kikkoman reduced soy sauce had about 50% less sodium the Job Lot did. Noted it in my daily planer. Bought St Louis cut ribs at Shaw's for 2.88 a lb.

Stopped at the PO to discover my order of StarCraft Brood War arrived from Stratham, GE. It was truly in mint condition for $5.99, 1st class pstg inc. Bought gas in town. Gas is down 5¢ to $3.04 a gallon.

Returned home to thank the seller and praise him/her for fast service, an accurate description, a fair low price.

Removed the crockpot from the canister. In theporclein oval bowl was red, yellow, and orange diced bell peppers, w/onions mushrooms, milled flaxseed, steelcut oatmeal w/2 eggs mixed in along w/a packet of onion soup mix, 1.5 lbs of ground pork sirloin roast and 6 sausages mixed together to form a 2.5" thick meat loaf. Golden pork gravy w/a half cup of water was poured in the sides and left to cook for 3 hours. Delish.

The ISS orbits early (6:51 PM) on the East Coast for those who can see it. See this and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:44 AM EDT. Night is 6:15 PM.

Sunrise: 7:14 AM. Set: 5:45 PM.

Length of day: 10h 31m. Length of visible light: 11h 31m. Tomorrow will be 2m 51s shorter.

The temp is 40° (4°C), the high will be 58° (14°C). A 1 day change into partly cloudy skies.

Have a tremendous day!

Good morning, org,

Thank goodness, I got Mom home (late yesterday afternoon)! She even made it back for her dinner at the ALF. So glad this is over. Well, sorta; will have to call the doctor's office and make an appointment for a follow-up visit.

I'll call Mom after that to tell her the time and date of the appointment, and to see how she's doing. She should be able to participate in the morning exercise and the lunch trip to Steak 'n' Shake. She's been looking forward to both.

All I can say for me is that I am ready to get back to my 'regular' days, and it starts with TODAY! Thank goodness!

Have a great day!

Good Morning org,

Spouting Horn, Depoe Bay, taken by Greg Henton.

Clean those restrooms:

On her way home from a long trip, a blonde drove past a sign that said "CLEAN RESTROOMS 8 MILES."

By the time she drove eight miles, she had cleaned 43 restrooms.

Happy Friday!

On this date, in 1648, the treaties for the Peace of Westphalia were signed, ending the Thirty Years War, ultimately destroying the Holy Roman Empire, and ushering in the modern European state system.

Welcome to Friday, MidnightSun!
G00d job!
I saw were the No'easter was going to be trouble for the next couple of days!
See you tommorrow.
Make this a delightful day!

Good morning org!

Mull over all options. Choose one that is correct the first time. Avoid disappointments. Capture the flag and be victorious. ; )

Enjoyed the light rain on the drive to Littleton along the CT River Hwy. Saw the first wave of geese overhead, perhaps 60-70 of then honking up a storm. Not many leaves remain on the silver maples lining the CT River.

Bought at the mkt were Driscoll's raspberries $1.50 a pint, blackberries $1.67, cukes are up to 67¢ ea, a 1¼ lb head of leaf lettuce for $1.50, baby bella's were $2.25 for 10 oz, Limes 5/$1, lemons 5/$2, oranges 4/$2, Bartlett pears 98¢s a lb, and sweet potatoes just 54¢ a lb.

Here is the link to the latest prices from Big Papa's Market this week. In tax free Littleton, NH.

Shopped around for sesame oil in four stores. See that my small WM doesn't even carry it. Cheapest seen is $10.30 a qt at Shaws. Will use it to make my own oyster sauce, free of chemicals and MSG.

Also want to make pork, beef or chicken Lo Mein and beef and broccoli Chinese style w/oyster sauce. A common important ingredient to keep on hand. See most store do not stock it.

Returned home to enjoy some war games playing StarCraft II. StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg waging war upon each other.

These three distinct and powerful races clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival. It has my interest.

Getting the brunt of the storm tonight. Winds gusts up to 25 mph w/a chance of rain near 100 percent. Will be fast asleep and hope the power remains on for heat and to post in the morning. You will know the outcome if there are posts or none.

The ISS orbits early (6:03 PM) and up to twice tonight (7:40 EDT) for those who can see it. See it and the other satellites in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:43 AM EDT. Night is 6:16 PM.

Sunrise: 7:12AM. Set: 5:47 PM.

Length of day: 10h 34m. Length of visible light: 11h 33m. Tomorrow will be 2m 52s shorter.

The temp is 42° (5°C), the high will be 47° (8°C) w/light rain. Heavy rain is on the way.

Have a delightful day!

Good afternoon org_elizard and All!
 
Org, Glad that the United Nations General Assembly convened.
 
Had a message ready to send this morning. Was playing bingo earlier but <poof> message disappeared when I came home. I won a game of bingo covering the card. K. did not win.
 
Storm clouds are in the area but have had just a few drops of rain.
 
BIX Foundation repair company stopped by today to give me an estimate. They said that I do not need to have piers installed.
 
Not sure if friend's wife will be using the snow blower. He may have to start treating her better.
 
Have a thankful Thursday!
