A few flocks of geese are evident in the area as I often hear the honking over our house. This prompts our guard and attack dog to sprint through the house to let them know who's who... Our four pound Yorkie is much smaller than the birds. Geese that fly in a "V" forma...

Our forefathers selected early November as Election Day because the weather in November is moderate - most of the time. In days of old, transportation from rural areas to polling places was compromised by weather. In 1948, weather helped Harry Truman as two inches of r...
