Hi MMC!!!

How are you all? We here on Long Island are doing well. We had a lovely weekend, the sun was SHINING it was beautiful!!!

We started our hike at 7:30 in the morning on Saturday and my goodness the sights and sounds of the beautiful outdoors. I tell you as we walk the trail and take in the beautiful I can't help but think God is Great, even in the midst of winter there are so may amazing sights. The best is all the holy bushes, I love the way the forest always looks like Christmas because of it.

This weekend we are going on a seal hike to view the Harbor Seals that come down to the tip of Long Island to enjoy what they feel is balmy weather LOL!!! A few years ago we saw the babies rushing into the water, it was so awesome. They have a large Hawk population and bunny population. If you get up real early in the morning, I mean just as the sun is breaking over the ocean you may see the gray fox coming back from the nights hunt, it is truly hard to believe you are on Long Island!!!

Well, enough about me and my last few days, now time to check in with ya'll and see how you have been and what you have been doing...

Miss you guys...

Good morning, all! I'm running a little late today, and I'm still pretty foggy from staying up so late last night. My neighborhood went absolutely nuts when the Ravens won...somebody had 'blockbuster' fireworks, and they were still setting them off at 3 am. It wouldn't have kept me up (I'm used to hearing them by now), but Victor the Wonder Dog kept trying to hide under the blankets. Poor baby, he doesn't like loud noises.

On another happy note, the temps have really dropped and we may have snow today! Is this for all my friends who said it would be a cold day in h*ll if the Ravens won?

Oh well, lunch break is over. Talk to you later!

I knew that about the US still doing imperial system. When we were beginning the metric system, especially in school, there was so much opposition that it was basically canned. I admire those who can automatically do both. It is too much for my pea-brain to contend with! LOL

Our gas is in Liters, mileage in kms and temps in celsius.
Canada started the switch to metric back in the 70's but it was not official until 1993...but for those of us who lived through the change, we still regress and hop back and forth.

So we end up being a rather mixed up. But I get my temperature conversion from this chart...http://www.temperatureworld.com/ctable1.htm

With the Season running in the background, the Season seems to be so much closer than it appears (sort of like the "saying" on the side mirrors of a car!!!).
Ah. You grasp the whole idea and feeling behind the Season count.
Excellent!
(And our Milestones are a big part of keeping the flow going and making it interesting and fun along the way.)
