Did you remember?

cj Sez:  Daylight Saving Time ended this morning at 2 a.m. local time. Did you remember to turn back your clock one hour? I did, but I didn't get any extra sleep.

  Animals, specifically my cats, don’t deign to observe hoo-mom time. Their internal clock said it was time for me to get up and feed them, and they were not shy about walking across my body and face to remind me. About the time we all get back on the same schedule, the time will change again because standard time returns on Sunday, March 12, 2023. I wish “those” people would make up our minds. All that ending of daylight saving time really means is that the sun will rise earlier in the morning and the evenings will get darker sooner.


Public Service Announcements

  November 11 . . . one hundred years ago, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the “war to end all wars” officially came to an end.

  This coming Friday is Veterans Day, also called Poppy Day, the day set aside to honor the sacrifices of all who fought in wars throughout the years. 

  “Even in the darkest of times, flowers still find their way to the surface to bloom. Poppy seeds can lay fallow for years, yet bloom brilliantly when the soil is disturbed or when the soil is freshly dug. After the battles were fought in World War I, the blood red poppy flourished in France and Belgium when battlefields became burial grounds. The red flowers suddenly bloomed among the newly dug gravesites of fallen service members, turning the new graveyards into fields of red.

  Surviving soldiers came to see the poppy as more than a flower—–it became a symbol of their sacrifice; a tribute to the price of freedom. Although all WWI veterans have since passed, 100 years later, the poppy has become a universal display of the sacrifices made by Americans and allied service members around the world.”

cj Sez: I thank God for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for my soul, and I thank the thousands and thousands of service people and their families for their sacrifices which have ensured the singularly rare freedoms that Americans enjoy. 


This week Tuesday is Midterm Election Day.

Please take the time to exercise your right and duty to vote. 
(Psst: Voting is one of the ways to help safeguard the freedoms that all those thousands of service people fought for: "All gave some; some gave all.")
