  1. Native Tribes are first!

    Pipelines are LAST.

    Alabama Pipeline Explodes. One killed, four or five injured, 32 acres in this drought area burned.

  2. Rocked my annual physical today!! (And I don't take that lightly.) Waiting on routine blood test results, but not worried. Even the needle went smoothly. Goodness, she never even mentioned blood sugar and didn't order the usual A1C. Amazing. Plus, turns out our home scale is a pound heavy! Nice surprise! Ha! I guess I can have that mini Milky Way now. 😉

    1. Coincidence!! I, too, had my annual physical today. No problems pending blood tests that have never been a problem. At one point the doctor mentioned that my prostate antigen had been trending up. Then he checked my chart and realized I'm 80, so prostate cancer is no longer a concern.

  3. Tomorrow is the last day for Vermonters to register to vote in time for Tuesday's Presidential Election.

    I'll be working at the polls on Tuesday from 12:30pm until we count the last vote and have taken the ballots over to the Town Hall and secured them there. So, I probably won't know how the vote is going nationally until about 9 or 10 pm as cell phones don't work too well inside the polling place (the high school).

    Please remember to VOTE if you haven't already! The better the turnout, the longer my day. I'm good with that!!

    1. I didn't make a note of the date, but am sure I voted more than two weeks ago. It seems strange to see all the flyers and the newspaper endorsements only now coming in, as if almost everyone held off voting until the last minute. I think that voting by mail is expected to exceed 40% this time...so the late advertisers and endorsers have missed at least a third of the voters already. Do they figure what they say will have no effect on early voters? Or are they simply living in the past? When I voted in person, I would try to be the first in my precinct.
