The view from my kitchen window this past week. The freezing temperatures formed the frozen trails on the window. We were at zero for a bit last week. Today it was almost 50 degrees though. The usual weather highs and lows in western NY.
I am working on my annual guild challenge today. The challenge is "That Was Then"...the year of your birth.
While searching the web I learned much about the year I was born. 1961. Of course the challenge was announced last February. A lot of us wait til the last month to make our piece. I am liking where mine is going, so that's a good thing. I can't show it yet....wait til Saturday.
I have learned:
- "The Take", a Netflix DVD, starring Tom Hardy is a good watch. Tom Hardy is compelling. Something about him....bad teeth and all.
- "Little Bee". A good read. Well written.
- Don't try to extricate an off road vehicle with a chain and tow strap. A work truck, that should not have been on the road last week, drove off the road in a white out. While trying to get the truck out of the field, the tow strap snapped which made in turn caused the chain to ricochet off the windshield, smashing it in the process. If there were a body in the line of that fire, it would have been deadly.
- Bruce's new CD due out Tuesday!
