Autumn 2012

Autumn seemed to come all at once and moved fast this year. The weather was a mix of a couple of really cold days to some unseasonably warm days which, with the exception of Hurricane Sandy, made for a nice season.  The leaves seemed to fall off the trees a little earlier this year. This Autumn Sunshine and I made our first "cask" of wine from the grapes we've been growing, Stanley started the first grade, and Halloween was a blast as usual.


There were several newsworthy events.  The presidential election dominated the airwaves here in Ohio. There were a couple of horrible shootings. That guy "Fiscal Cliff" kept coming around…

Also, try and remember that 'merica is a country made up of many different races, religions, and traditions. So, as we move on to Winter, I'd like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza, Happy Chanukah, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Festivus or whatever you believe in. Be respectful of other peoples beliefs and traditions during the holidays.
