Welcome Back! Shoot One - "Winter of 2015!"

Happy New Year and welcome back!

You really didn't think I'd go away THAT quietly, did you?

Massachusetts facts:
BU Bridge has that unique distinction!
"X" marks the spot for the gold dome of the State House
The Children's Museum Milk Bottle!
Agawam is 01001

And, the big winner was Beth with a perfect 4 for4! First runner-up was Jim W. with one and a half right answers - Agawam and he knew the former center of Boston; right behind him with one was Elaine (Agawam) while the rest Jeff W., Joani, Doris, and Mike Di. simply checked in without a guess. Mike's lame excuse was he was from RI!

"Third Time Tunneling to the Feeder"

Just about a year ago we were to get past a very mild December for Mother Nature's wrath - a record setting snowfall in January and February. I believe we had about nine weekends in a row of snow! Grand total was a mere 110.6 inches!!! Over FIVE FEET of it fell in February!

We have a small bird feeder in the backyard that needed to be refilled on a daily basis - unfortunately that meant shoveling out a path to get to it. Just what one needs - tunneling out to the feeder! 

I hope the birds appreciated my efforts. . .

Mantra for 2016 and beyond. . .

Live simply, 
love generously, 
care deeply, 
speak kindly, 

and leave the rest to God.

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be? Here is an easy one:

has the largest population in the world, with over 1.3 billion people (1,343,239,923) as of July 2012.

is the 3rd largest country by area at 9,706,961 sq km (3,747,879 sq miles).

has the fourth longest river in the world, reaching 5,797km (3,602 miles) in length. It also has the sixth longest, stretching 4,667km (2,900 miles).

has the second largest economy in the world, after the United States of America.

became the third country to successfully send a person to space.

has the largest man made structure in the world, stretching an incredible 8,850 kilometres (5,500 miles).

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world,
I realized that at my age 
I don't really give a rat's a-- anymore!
