Welcome July-the start of those summer "dog days". Do you know how "dog days of summer" originated? Here's a hint. It has nothing to do with dogs roaming around panting.

Next: a few odds and ends
I'll be taking a break from the political scene for a while both here and on Facebook (I'm sure you're thinking, "Good, it's about time") It's too depressing to dwell on so best to simply ignore it and hope for the best. Grumbling and griping aren't helping.
On that note I am reading a book now called "The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen". Hendrik Groen is an 83 year old inhabitant of a nursing home in the Netherlands. He set out to keep a daily journal of various thoughts and events. It's a great book and being only 8 years away from his age and I can fully relate to much of what it says. Pick up a copy and read it.
I've been busy getting the yard in shape because I won't be getting back to it for the next couple of weeks. Nor will I be posting here until the middle or so of July. We're going on a trip with my daughter's family so I'll be busy doing other things. When we do get back, however, I'll have tons of great pictures to show you which you'll be able to get on my web site (see above-just remove the 'almanac' suffix).
That's it for now. Don't forget to check out the July almanac page.
