We have horses around here too, which always sort of amazes me, but there is farm country at the end of the subdivisions.I have to share....... I have a Grumpy Cat calendar and the saying for September is: "I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how wrong you are."
I like horses. Wish I could still ride. *sigh*LOL Susan. Ain't it the truth?
One of the articles from yesterday appeared to suggest that Our Revolution should be a PAC. I'm not convinced. With a PAC, you give your money to them and the honchos decide who it goes to. Not very Bernie-like. I prefer the way Council for a Livable World works -- I've been donating through them for decades. Their web sit has a list of the candidates they support. You click on the ones you want to give to and indicate a total amount. The money passes directly through the Council's web site to the candidates' campaign funds. It's a direct contribution as far as the REC is concerned and is totally under your control.The article said DFA is a PAC, which surprised me. I have never been aware of it contributing directly to candidates. AFAIK, my contributions go to staffing and to things like the Night Schools.
Nother cool gorgeous sunny non-summer day. In fact, summer only lasts three more weeks. Which is good good good in my book.
Although I looked at our weather prediction earlier today. Supposed to get back into the 90s by mid-week.
We've had perfect weather for the Windjammer Festival, though I think the crews would like a tad more wind. It's doable, though. Excellent sunshine! All this and we got to hear Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul and Mary fame) tonight at the Camden (Maine) Opera House. Fabulous!!
High temperatures around 90 degrees here, give or take. Still hot in the direct sun during the mid-afternoon, but very nice as the sun starts to go down, especially in the back yard, which gets a breeze directly out of the river bottom. I cleared the weeds from a section of flowerbed in the front yard, and over the next two days mean to clear a bed against the back fence.I made contact with the local Sacred Harp group today; it isn't large, maybe twenty, of whom ten or twelve usually show up for a singing. But that suits me. They will have a gift song book for me when I arrive (probably the second Saturday of October). I read an introduction to Sacred Harp singing that had no shortage of very murky (for me) musical theory stuff, but ordinary people have been learning to sight-sing with the shape-note system for more than two centuries, so I should be OK. As I type this I am listening to a succession of Sacred Harp songs on YouTube. Nice.--Alan
