Happy Sunday

The Summer Solstice occurred back on June 21 where the North Pole tilts directly towards the sun making more sunlight the farther north above the equator you live. It typically means more warmer days and nights though that greatly depends on where you live. Some places are known for hot summers while others are known for more mild conditions. Now if you live closer to the North Pole (Alaska, parts of Canada, and Scandinavian countries)the sun literally never sets during this time of year. Of course the reverse is true in the Southern Hemisphere. They get less sunlight on the June Solstice and the closer you are to the Antarctic Circle means less sunlight or total night. For them, it is the Winter Solstice. It is hard to believe Australia, for instance, gets cold but they do get cooler days and nights during this time.

Have a nice Sunday everyone wherever you may be.

Auld Lang Syne
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Happy Sunday

Autumn is not that far away now. Technically it is still summer but the days are starting to get shorter now. Warm days still abound but now some chilly nights as well. Of course that depends on where you live. Some areas actually get warmer such as California due to seasonal changes in wind direction. More offshore winds usually means lots more warm air over California.

Still the signs that autumn is approaching are showing up. Already some trees are starting to loose leaves. Summer produce is now disappearing from the shelves to be replaced soon with fall produce. Blueberries, mangos, peaches and watermelons will soon be replaced by apples, grapes, cranberries and pumpkins.  Of course since the growing season is different in the southern hemisphere, out of season produce here may appear on our shelves from places like Chile.

Have a nice Sunday everyone.
