Appalachian State Football = Southern Conference Champs again, again, again and again.



We've had our 2nd snow. http://blueridgeblog.blogs.com/ was very cold and blustery this weekend. TODAY = Hi: 41 Lo: 22Partly to mostly cloudy; Chilly day but turning colder again late afternoon & tonight; Snow showers (west) and flurries (east) beginning around or just after sunset; West wind 5-15 mph becoming NW 10-20 mph with gusts to 40 mph in the afternoon & overnight. http://www.booneweather.com/Forecast/Boone

At home, our modem went out Saturday, Charter-tech guy arrives Sunday but doesn't bring a new modem, duhh, now they hope to work us in today. No internet over the weekend, DT's -delirium tremens (yes, I just looked that up). We spent our time CLEANING the HOUSE, and I watched three btb episodes of HOUSE http://www.fox.com/house/ I try not to watch too much TV but I've caught some reruns of this show and it's pretty good.

I'm reading - http://www.amazon.com/Good-Life-Scott-Nearing/dp/0805209700 my kinda stuff, a book about a twentieth century pioneering venture in a New England community.

The Dec08/Jan09 MotherEarthNews arrived so I'll be sitting in bed tonight reading every word at least once. I'm a big fan. That, and BackwoodHome http://www.backwoodshome.com/ Jackie Clay is my hero. I receive other magazines but those are the two that really thrill me.

Did you know that a goat's eyesight is the equivalent to what a human sees with 8x or 10x binocular power? (yes, I just looked that up).
