I shall tell her this evening, Macdoc. Of course, take away MY morning coffee and I would do more than merely curl up with the doxies -- I would go curling WITH the doxies. Actually, I like a few cups of coffee between dawn and noon, and then I usually might have one more after supper.

Thanks for the info.

Back here at my favorite forum after a three-day thrash to finish a video project for my dragrace team's year-end banquet. I ended up tossing out Final Cut Express and using iMovie3 (see "troubleshooting" if you are curious about details.

So...the weather here on Salt Spring Island is bright and sunny and 11C today. Not quite freezing at night now, after more than a week of below zeroC nights. Almost no wind right now and it was dead flat calm coming across on the ferry last night at 10PM. Unusual for the Pacific Ocean (even in the shelter of the islands) to be smooth as glass.

My mandarin orange tree is showing fruit and the lawn won't need cutting again for some time if this cold snap keeps up. The weather man on TV says we'll be back into the mid teens by next week, so I'll probably be able to put away the wooly mittens for a while.

There are lots of farmers in this very rural area who are predicting a rather cold winter this year. In an area that gets as much winter rainfall as we do, freezing temps for extended periods are particularly scary.

It could mean snow. LOTS of it. Yikes!

At 5:30 a.m. it is only minus four, with the promise of sun and a high of plus one. This one I am going to enjoy. I just hope it continues for the Remembrance Day services tomorrow morning at eleven. We should all take the time to attend, or at the very least observe the two minutes silence.

Chilly and clear here in Mississauga. Time to get the hot tub hat out.

Mayor Hazel will roll in with her usual enormous victory.

The race for Mayor of TO concludes today.

Minus 8 this morning, predicted high minus 1, no sun, no wind, dull and gloomy. Kind of sets the stage for the Remembrance Day services. I will comment on those services in a new post entitled "A Day To Remember" following this post.

Sinc, it was a cool (-3C) and cloudy day here in St.John's at 11AM down by the War Memorial.

Nov.11th and July 1st, are two days that people here in Newfoundland and Labrador still hold dear (it is a provincial holiday). July 1st is a sacred day for this province. On July 1, 1916, the Newfoundland Regiment fought at the battle of Beaumont Hamel. More than 800 Newfoundland soldiers climbed out of their support trenches, starting at 8:45 a.m. Only 68 answered the rollcall the next day. In thirty minutes, the battalion had been virtually eliminated.

Lest we Forget. Paix.

Sunny with a few clouds here, today. High of twelve predicted and well above freezing at night. One of the nicest Rememberance Days in recent memory. It's usually gloomy and raining for this sad day.

That's just fine with me. The weather should be somber on this one day every year. It befits the mood. Rather than getting out to enjoy a sunny day off, we should all stop and have some serious thoughts about what this day means....really means...to all of us.

It's important.

Macnutt, I liked your inclusion of the phrase "really means", which is a question I usually ask of my son. Sadly, he comes up with a textbook answer. At the St.John's War Memorial this morning, a little girl within ear shot of me asked her mom why everyone was crying. Everyone in the general area looked around at each other, each with tears in their eyes. Still, these tears were personal, thus, no words were spoken.

Yes, we need to understand, really understand, the significance of this day, and of the sacrifices that were made for us all. Paix.

We have had warm wet gloomy weather for the last few days. The 3 or 4 inches of snow we had is almost gone. Now we are expecting up to 25cm of snow by tommorow morning
