The wood stove is crackling away, the snow is falling, and the days are long. Those of us who tough it out in the northern woods are biding our time - cooking, telling stories, playing cribbage, and working jigsaw puzzles while we watch the national news get worse and worse.
And we read our bible. No, not that one, although it wouldn't hurt any of us to pick it up and read a few passages now and then. I'm taking about the Farmer's Almanac.
Did you know that there are 'only' seventy more days til spring? Do you know the definition for the word of the day - whangdoodle (an imaginary creature) ? Or that the planting date for vegetables that grow above ground is different than those that grow under (light of the moon vs dark of the moon)?
You would if you had a Farmer's Almanac. Get your own or follow it here: http://almanac.com
Gotta go plan. The Almanac says the best time in January to start a diet is on the 13th. I'm on it.
