Thank you to everyone who has sent me such great information to share  
with all of you. I still have several drafts for blog posts which I  
hope to get to this week. I keep wondering why we can't just extend  
everyday by an hour like we did two weeks ago when we moved our  
clocks. I do miss the light at the end of the day but I enjoy being  
able to walk while it is light in the early morning. I am also  
enjoying this mild weather that continues and being able to see  
through the woods quite a distance without the leaves blocking my view.

The fall season of going to high school musicals is upon us. Be sure  
and go to your local high school webpage to learn which schools have  
plays happening this weekend. I enjoyed Camden Hills Regional High  
School performance of "HONK!" Congratulations to Kim Murphy, Rick Ash  
and students. I intend to go to at least one more this next weekend.  
Ahhhhh, so much to do, so little time....

The following are the latest blog post topics and a short statement to
