I love TV

Lughnasa and the Harvest Moon So. Television. The boob tube. Kill your TV. The great wasteland. Coastal elites love to hate TV. Oh, wait, that was from a Trump supporter. Anyhow, television. Saw my first flickery images from the little box in 1952, election returns from the Eisenhower/Stevenson vote. Black and white. Dad and I […]

New Moon

Lughnasa and the Harvest Moon New moon tonight. Great night for astronomy. Moving out of the time of the first harvest though Lughnasa has three weeks to go. The combines will be in the fields soon, contractors working through the night with the aid of the Harvest Moon. Dreamy and sleepy this morning. The dogs […]

Second Act

Lughnasa and the 1% crescent of the Moon of the First Harvest Workout yesterday. Used my new 10 kilogram kettlebell for goblin squats. My legs could tell. Even this morning coming up the stairs to the loft. Good to feel the work. Kate finished up the peaches, preserving them in oj. Put them in the […]

Dueling Hats

Lughnasa and the crescent Moon of the First Harvest New ways to do old things change habits. Example: I drove to King Sooper to pick up our grocery order. In my pajama bottoms. The button on the dash raised the back door and closed it when the ClickIt employee finished loading. Never had to get […]

So Good

Lughnasa and the crescent Moon of the First Harvest Cool again this morning. Great sleeping. So much so that Rigel couldn’t be bothered to get up and go outside before breakfast. I had to go down and roust her. All that barking at the bunnies under the shed tired her out, I guess. Thankfully she […]

Not Giving It My Life

Lughnasa and the waning crescent of the Moon of the First Harvest Orion glistened in the dark morning sky. Looked fancy, like a huge piece of jewelry hung to adorn the heavens. Soon we’ll have a new moon. Might be able to see the Milky Way. Hope so. Kate and I had a workday yesterday. […]

Once and Future Denver

Lughnasa and the Moon of the First Harvest Into Lakewood yesterday, Colfax Avenue. For those of you from the Twin Cities, Colfax is Lake Street. Really long, with several interesting transitions as it passes through Denver to the east and west. An A&W Rootbeer Stand had an America’s Road sign on it. Colfax is also […]

What Torah Might We Write?

Lughnasa and the Moon of the First Harvest Went to a bagel table at CBE yesterday. Steve Tick, a congregant and a lawyer, presented on the parshah for the week, Deut. 7:12-11:25. We read all the way through it, taking turns. He’s got a lot of torah knowledge, having studied with a scholar/rabbi for over […]

Sunny Saturday Morning

Lughnasa and the Moon of the First Harvest Kate’s second birthday. Yesterday Jon, Ruth, and Gabe came up after school. Ruth brought a special piece of lemon cake for Kate. Ruth made a birthday card at school with 75 in raised numbers and a sweet note on the back. Gabe sent photographs of minions wishing […]

Other Nations

Lughnasa and the Moon of the First Harvest If you look at the post below, you’ll see a line about a minor fall and osteopenia. Fell this morning going downstairs. Landed, fortunately, on my right side, right hip hitting the ground. It was the left hip that had the softened femoral ball. Could have been, […]
