When I lived in Iowa the joke was that one wanted to experience all four seasons in one week they just had to live in Iowa for a while.  Sooner or later they would have such a week.

Seems to be the case up here in Minnesota as well.  After a stretch with with highs in the 70s to 80s even up as high as 90 it's been fairly cool out the past few days.  Supposed to warm up again over the week and be up around 80 by this weekend.  So far the plant collection seems to be tolerating the cold snap fairly well.  If it was getting too much colder I'd bring them inside or cover them up.

I had to turn the heat back on this morning because the place finally got cold enough to need the heat on for a while.  I'm not my aunt or uncle who would keep the home in the mid 60s and where sweaters at home when it's cold out.  I have been wearing all my heavier long sleeved stuff lately just because once it warms up again I probably won't need them again for a few months.

It has been unseasonably cold here in Colorado as well: from the eighties (F) to the twenties in 24 hours a few days ago. However, it came with some much needed moisture in the form of snow/rain so we are happy especially as apparently the landscaping plants have survived the wet sticky snow we got.

Had a FB friend say that it was 90s in upstate New York the other day.  Of course I had to go tell her what the weather was like in Minnesota.  Expressions of dislike ensued.

When my sister and brother in law lived in St. Charles, Missouri (St. Louis area) my brother and I went to visit them one spring weekend.  Temperature had dropped in less than 24 hours from close to 90 down to the mid 30s.  We froze our hind parts off at a Cardinals game.  We went to another game the next evening and temps were much nicer then.

      I looked at Luke’s rumored gf’s fb page and I don’t see any of the posts mentioning him. I wonder if those two broke up and that is a lesson to all the other brothers. 

      She’s made her profile more private. It could just be that.

      My experience with fundie live streams is that they often become videos you can watch later. I will recap though.

      When I did my social work internship at the women's prison, the food was ok, but quite bland. The coffee was decaffeinated but flavored. I had mushroom soup once which was quite tasteless. I paid for the lunch, a nominal amount, but mostly I brought my own. The women could buy condiments at the commissary at a large mark up. I was allowed to bring in my own coffee pot which I shared with my clients, also candy.

      Will anyone do it up right, buying a bird for kapparot?

      "Another custom observed during this time is kapparot. This is rarely practiced today, and is observed in its true form only by Chasidic and occasionally Orthodox Jews. Basically, you purchase a live fowl, and on the morning before Yom Kippur you wave it over your head reciting a prayer asking that the fowl be considered atonement for sins. The fowl is then slaughtered and given to the poor (or its value is given)."

       

      Did the Remnant actually do this?
