Good one annette!
One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Statues, inscriptions, memorial stones, the names of streets ? anything that might throw light upon the past had been systematically altered. (1.8.85)

whining ? is that the sound the wind makes as it blows the snow around into deep drifts ?

-22c yesterday  :-\

Depth of snow ? up to my belt when i had to shuffle through 300meters of snow to get to 10 hives and shovel away the snow so they have a chance to survive to spring !  ;)

Have to find my snow shoes so i can take a walk into the forest so I can check on the rest of my hives , good way to burn of some Xmas turkey MMmmmmm turkey  :-D

Collected one metric ton of creamed honey yesterday , filtered and bottled ready to sell to my neighbors to the new year.

Bottled summer flowers ready to bee opened in the cold winter night.

Merry Christmas to all ,  hope Santa leaves more than a lump of coal in your stockings :-D

mvh edward  :-P

PA winters have always been my only complaint about the commonwealth.  Not much that can be done about that but move but I'd rather not.  Not now anyways.

Just look at how thick the wood is with the Siberia hive.   Nobody needs to complain about heavy boxes around here.
