animated us half mast flag1

My heartfelt apology to all World War II veterans for not including my thoughts about Pearl Harbor remembrance - I am deeply sorry not to recognize this horrible event and the ensuing war. You veterans have my undying respect and thanks for your sacrifice and we all need to remember the ones who did not come home.

The days just keep getting shorter and shorter

It's still fall folks - no matter that it hasn't been above freezing since December 4th (that's a week, people). Hope you are keeping warm and taking extra care when you venture outdoors.

Sun rose at 07:40 and will set at 04:57 - that means we have 9 hours and 17 minutes of sunlight - if there aren't any clouds.
