I am mostly asked how a continue is adult here during a tip of a petrify towers during a feet of Mechanic Street, where we am forced to live. The answer is that we have flattering many a same continue as we have in your possess backyard.
Which is to contend that it is mostly a lot reduction worse than a continue inland. For obscure reasons, we spent all day in Old Augusta, and adult there they apparently had gifted utterly a tumble of sleet when we had customarily rain. Lucky us, we say.

Slightly reduction advantageous was an Angus cow in Windsor that we listened about final week from a man in Rockport. The rancher listened a turmoil in a night and went out to check a livestock, to find that a bad animal had been pounded and badly harmed by some different force. The associate from Rockport had been asked to go adult and meddler around a plantation to see if he competence line down a guilty party.
In his opinion, a many expected law-breaker was a coyote, or presumably several of them operative cooperatively, and he dictated to take his shotgun adult with him. we am certain a rancher had word on a loss, though we don’t suspect that finished a cow feel any better.
I was reminded of a unconcerned sequence of inlet on Sunday, when we watched a uncover on my steam-powered hamster-wheel TV set, describing a family between buffalo and wolves in northern Canadia. At one point, a mom wolf brought down a buffalo calf in sequence to feed her open cubs, and a filmmaker certified it was tough to know either to base for a wolf or a calf.
It was a closest he came to revelation a unclothed truth: that there is no probity in nature. Only when humankind gets concerned do we even try to consider probity of a sort, and in a box of a Windsor cow, it presents itself as a matter of losing profitable livestock. To a tangible pain and pang of a bad animal we simply have to stop a ears.

New Year’s Eve seemed to go agreeably enough. Around 6:30 p.m. we was during a piazza where a Chinese grill is, and saw fireworks ripping utterly nearby, and during a theory we would contend they were during a golf bar on Old County Road. They substantially shot them off so early in a dusk since of a foresee for complicated rain.
It was a scold call.
I was also during a South End Market around that time and beheld that Dave, a man who runs a ovens during a behind of a store, was looking utterly sleepy out. we inquired as to his situation, and he pronounced they had baked and sole 65 pizzas in a prior dual and one-half hours.
See what work has to be finished so that we happy few can get a takeout, even on such a large holiday night? we consider further of a grill workers who keep a lights on too, not to forget a others who keep a hospitals and open reserve departments operative by each holiday.

Isn’t it softly comical to know that we can use a golf bar during a golf club? English is such a stretchable language.

New Year’s Day saw me wrapped adult in a Sunday Times, a singular yield for dear tiny me. It customarily takes me a month to examination it all, that is substantially because we stopped perplexing to examination it all. At slightest a paper provides some insulation for my card box in a north tower.
The book examination territory treated on a subject of books about dieting, that is such a common sales representation after a holidays. One author was quoted as observant that celebration one can of Coke a day contributes 31 pounds of sugarine to a tellurian who drinks it.
This is a homogeneous to sitting down with a ladle and delicately eating your approach by somewhat some-more than a dozen unchanging bags of sugar, that works out during about one bag a month.
Just suspicion I’d toss in some anniversary shame this week, for those who feel they merit it.

New Year’s Day also brought me behind to inlet in a form of a integrate of dozen geese who had finally motionless to fly south, who were honking and waving their approach opposite a sky above South School in a instruction of Waldoboro. I’d contend they left it a bit late, though improved late than never.

I consternation what delights they have in store for us during City Hall, this year. Last year a large bitch was all about building a healthy gas bureau in Rockland, a fetish of some heated mind that left like a fume of fume once a novella behind it was finished plain.
One tiny thing a city seems to have done, substantially anticipating to make life miraculous for us, is to cover adult a yellow stripes along a center of a highway during a feet of Pleasant Street, and paint new stripes about 2 feet to a west.
This has had a shining outcome of creation a line nearest a new hotel wider, while creation a other line about as slight as a goat path. we suspect a thought was to yield improved parking for hotel guests, and somebody should during slightest be given outlines for trying. The city did a same thing on Tillson Avenue about 20 years ago, and indeed combined some useful erratic parking spots where there had been nothing before.
However, we all know how tough it is to disguise yellow highway stripes, generally as they are designed to be visible. The outcome is that underneath certain lighting and windy conditions, drivers branch adult Pleasant past a side of a hotel are presented with a obscure double prophesy of yellow stripes, as both sets – a new ones and a presumably secluded ones – are rarely visible.
It is now entirely fathomable that a head-on collision could start here, where both drivers are assured they are in a scold lane. It would be engaging to see how a justice or an word association competence hoop this oddity situation, don’t we think?
Happy New Year, Rockland!
