  1. I just finished my prayers and came on to mention something I’m thankful for. So? I open the computer and the first thing that pops up is news that 40,000 people have fled Ethiopia to the Sudan.

    With that in mind, let me say that I have been immensely blessed. And the troubles I have now amount to nothing in God’s scheme of things.

    But I am thankful that I am an American, living in NC.

    I see on TV that you have elected a president who thinks he is responsible for the weather. One of the things for which I am thankful is that I levied in the epoch when the US was, indeed, a great nation.

  2. The UD used to be a great nation.
    Obama came in to fix that. Trump gave a good try to bring us back.
    But climate change is more important than gasoline for your car.
    That’s where we are headed. We may not recover from that.

  3. Chas, God is still on His throne.

    The header is a male pileated woodpecker, one of three of the birds that were flying around and making a lot of noise. One male and one female I photographed, and I didn’t see the sex of the third bird. It may have been a pair and one of their young, or it may have been all this year’s juvenile birds. I suspect it was a pair telling a third bird (even if one of their own young) that this is their territory and it’s time to be moving along. (Pileated woodpeckers do stay on their territories year-round, and winter is a much easier time to see them. I’m not sure when they encourage their juveniles to leave the territory.)

    This is the largest North American woodpecker species if the ivory-billed is truly extinct. The ivory-billed looks much like it but is bigger with slightly different markings. The pileated is most easily sighted if you know the sound of its call, a loud jungle-reminiscent laugh. It also makes a very loud hammering sound on trees, loud enough to let you know it has to be a pileated. We have a fair number of these birds in the area, and sightings aren’t infrequent, but the birds are much easier to see in winter. Between these three from a few days ago and a pair yesterday in a different location, I have seen five of them this week, a good week.

  4. Good morning! The sky is roaring this morning which is a blessed thing to give thanks for today. Being under the flight pattern for the busiest airport in the world on the day before Thanksgiving is awesome. I remember the utter silence after 9/11. Now I think of all those who are flying to be with loved ones tomorrow. I am so happy for them.

    We got to do Zoom with Wesley last night. He’d had another exhausting day. Surprisingly he said he bought a duck to roast for Thanksgiving. He said he could not justify buying a turkey to cook for only himself. Then he found out his apartment mate would not be going home for Thanksgiving so they can share the duck. I have never had duck so I look forward to meeting that duck on Zoom.

    All the classes being taught after the holiday will be online only. That is a very wise move. Because of his background with asthma, Wesley has continued to be very cautious about Covid. He has been more so than any of us oldies but goodies.

    Happy Fixin’ Day to Y’all!

    I am on the Reader only app so look forward to seeing the header later.

  5. When I was in basic training when I joined the AF, we had a flight chief who lead from behind. He stood there, giving commands on the drill field rather than march along with us.
    The result was confusion about some of his commands.
    And we got blamed for it. .

  6. Morning! It is a cold brisk morning in the forest and the sight of snow on the ground makes me smile! The birds are flitting about on the deck grabbing the fresh seed I have placed out there for them and my inside bird “Bertie” is singing along with them!
    The My Utmost For His Highest devotion was encouraging and sobering this morning. In part I was reminded by these words:
    Beware of “the cares of this world…” (Mark 4:19). They are the very things that produce the wrong attitudes in our soul. It is incredible what enormous power there is in simple things to distract our attention away from God. Refuse to be swamped by “the cares of this world“….

  7. Some interesting analysis on Covid-19 stats:

    __________________________

    Coronavirus infections are higher than ever, but COVID-19 deaths are not. Why?

    https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-11-25/coronavirus-infections-are-higher-than-ever-but-covid-19-deaths-are-not-why

    For months, epidemiologists have predicted a spike in COVID-19 cases as winter approaches. Now it appears those dark forecasts were all too accurate.

    Coronavirus infections are rising across much of the United States, with the number of new daily cases nearing 200,000 for the past several days. That’s about five times the number of new daily cases the U.S. was reporting as recently as September, according to the World Health Organization.

    In California, the average number of new coronavirus cases has tripled in the last month alone. The virus is now infecting more Californians every day than at any previous point in the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Times analysis. …

    … In early April, the U.S. reported about 30,000 new infections and about 2,000 deaths per day, according to the WHO. That’s about the same number of deaths that are being reported now — though daily new cases are more than six times higher.

    What exactly is going on? The more coronavirus cases that are reported, the more COVID-19 deaths we’d expect to see, right?

    The answer is both yes and no, experts said.

    The general consensus is that the number of deaths will eventually follow infections in their upward trajectory, but the ratio of deaths per infection will remain significantly lower than it was in the spring.

    There are multiple reasons for this. Some may seem obvious; others, more surprising.

    But before we go through them, just remember that if you were hoping that the virus was losing its bite, or that the drop in death rate is a reason to ignore safety protocols, experts say that is not the case.

    “There is no evidence that this virus is becoming less lethal,” said Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

    … Reason 1: Increased testing

    … As testing has ramped up across the country, and the bar for getting checked has come way down, more infections are being identified. However, since the sickest COVID-19 patients were generally able to get tested all along, improved testing capacity has not made nearly as much difference in counting the number of people who die of the disease.

    That dichotomy explains why the percentage of coronavirus cases serious enough to result in death has gone down.

    Reason 2: Better treatments …

    Reason 3: More young people getting infected

    “The biggest thing that has shifted since the spring is the age of the people getting infected,” Nuzzo said.

    That makes a difference, because the older the COVID-19 patient, the greater the risk the disease will be fatal. …

    … This shift in age distribution of those infected with the coronavirus has reduced the overall COVID-19 fatality rate. …

    … Epidemiologists have noted similar trends with HIV, he said: Young people who are infected are more likely to disregard the medication protocols that are important for controlling that virus.

    “You can certainly find plenty of young people who are doing what they need to do, but if you go to a bar, it’s usually not filled with old people,” Dworkin said. “It’s that invincibility of youth. They process risk differently.”

    However, as cases climb among younger adults, there will be ripple effects for their elders, Nuzzo added.

    “We have fairly good data that young people don’t live in a bubble,” she said. “In the coming weeks, we should expect to see the virus spread to older populations as well.”…

    … Reason 4: Better-prepared nursing homes …

    … Reason number 5: The lag …

    New coronavirus infections started seriously spiking in the United States in mid-October, so epidemiologists say we are just getting to the point where they would expect to see deaths begin to climb. And indeed, that’s exactly what the data show. …

    … In other words: If you were hoping for a reason why more infections won’t necessarily mean more deaths, the science just isn’t on your side. And even if deaths don’t rise over the next couple of months, we’re still looking at 2,000 Americans dying of COVID-19 every day.

  8. We’re hoping to get a short day today, apparently — editor told us yesterday he hoped to have us “out” by noon, but we’ll see.

    It’s been another couple days of doing nothing but virus stories and today will likely be the same. Many people are up in arms, understandably, about the countywide shutdown of outdoor dining; restaurant associations and individual restaurant owners are fighting back, saying they’ll be out of business in no time — it’s supposed to last for 3 weeks but everyone expects it’ll be longer.

    ++++++++++++++++

    I’m still dealing with some lower back and upper leg aches on the left side, so it’s back to the heating pad this morning.

    My TV is kaput, apparently, it never did come back on once the new router was installed — and won’t even turn on using the manual power button. TV repair guy said “probably not worth it” to try to fix it.

    So I have a $200 new smart TV ordered through Amazon (surprising how cheap smart TVs are now), it’s supposed to arrive Tuesday. It’s a 43″ model, larger than my current 32-inch TV so it’ll seem big (even though in TV terms it’s still considered “small”). But it’s not like I’m hosting big Super Bowl viewing parties; it’s me and NCIS, mostly. lol

    All the guy friends I turned to for TV buying advice urged me to get a 50-inch TV but that would look massive in the space where the TV goes in my dining area, I don’t think there would be room.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    We’re in for some more high winds in the next few days, so power is expected to go off as a precaution for many in the inland, more mountainous areas just east of LA County. That should make Thanksgiving a challenge for many.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    What a year. God surely is up to something.

  9. Good morning.

    I am thankful for great sibling relationships among my children. First Arrow arrived here yesterday to spend a few days with us. He (30 years old) is currently outside with Sixth Arrow (13 years old) throwing snowballs toward the ditch, smiling and laughing and having a good old time. 🙂

    Who says 17 years apart is too great an age difference to have fun together? 😉

  11. Good morning. Thirteen and I may do a little something for Thanksgiving. Husband and son are still in Boise, trying to be of help. Convenient as the paid babysitter is on vacation this week. No idea what they had planned as far as childcare without husband being there. Nineteen daughter was invited to her worker’s house for Thanksgiving (worker will get paid for having her to dinner). And twenty three is working. That just leaves us and the baby. We, of course, have turkey in the freezer from a previous occupant of the turkey run. We may make a pumpkin pie.
    I am thankful that we can now have quiet Thanksgiving with just the two of us after years of large gatherings of minimum fifteen.

  12. Well last night I found out that red peppers make me sick, but after that I had fun. I had gotten one top at Kohl’s when I was in Oregon. I was looking at getting it in other colors. When I looked last night they were having their black Friday sales and it was down to 4.24! First time to buy anything on those sales, so I got four. And even with tax and shipping they were each less than 7 dollars.

    Thankful to be in a country that I can do something like that. I am warm and comfy. We are going out to do our own virtual turkey trot today. Doing a 5k instead of waiting for tomorrow.

  13. I don’t know if I answered Chas’s QOW yesterday, though I came on here intending to do so. So I’ll start with what I meant to post yesterday. I’m thankful for the orderliness of seasons. I have been outside for at least a few minutes every day (not yet today–it’s raining) since sometime in April. I committed to a “photo a day” for a site on Flickr, and I far prefer nature shots, and I also figured that in this Covid year it would be better for my mental and physical health to get outside every day I could. I usually do get out just about every day from late spring on into summer, but I probably have never had a time of getting outside every single day for seven months straight (seven months tomorrow) and most days for the whole year. (I’ve had only 23 days this year all my photos were taken inside, and one of those days the shot was of ants. Most of the other “inside” days I’ve photographed things like acorns and dried flowers that I brought inside to practice macro photography.)

    Several days a week that “getting outside” has taken me down the street to the pond half a mile away and most often to one of the walking trails just past the pond. I have thus had a really good opportunity to see the rhythms of the seasons in one specific area. I also have photos from the same area for the last year and a half before that (though not every day in those months), so for three summers and falls and two winters and springs so far I have seen the local seasons. I know when a specific wildflower will start to bloom, and where I’m most likely to see it. I know when to start looking for dragonflies or butterflies and what time of day is best to see insects (afternoon) and what time of day to go out if I want to see woodpeckers (late morning). I know what months and what time of day the chicory is open (it’s a morning bloom unless the day is overcast), and I know when the orange wildflowers start to bloom (not till June).

    This year I have photographed somewhere between 450 and 500 species of insects–and I know of several species I saw last year and didn’t see this year and several more species local photographers have shot and I haven’t. Add arachnids, reptiles and amphibians, mammals, birds, etc., and plants, and the variety is amazing. Then think of all the other places in the world that have a different assortment–I’ve barely gotten outside my own county this year, and those hundreds of creatures are all in one smallish area in southern Indiana, mostly within two or three miles of my house! (I’ve also photographed hundreds of varieties of wildflowers, more than I had any hint that we had, but it’s harder for me to figure out what is or isn’t a distinct species of them.)

    All those creatures have their own rhythms. It isn’t uncommon for a specific species of wildflower to only bloom for two or three weeks of the year. Its spot in the field may be used by two or three different plant species over the course of the year. Some insects are only adults for a few days to weeks, and insects like butterflies may only have one adult cycle in a year. (Some like the monarch will have several generations over a year.) If an adult insect is going to be around for only two weeks of the year, and is going to be out at the same time a specific flower is blooming, that’s pretty specific timing. And thousands of life forms (including the plants) all have those rhythms going on. Each one is blooming, or has its adult life form, at just the right time of the cycle to have the right temperature, right food source, and right circumstances to reproduce. Male birds have to be ready to reproduce at the same time female birds are, and they have to be ready at the right time for the best abundance of food when their chicks are getting big. It’s all way, way more complicated than I had any inkling of even three or four years ago.

    And all of it was put into place by a Creator who has made us in His image, communicated with us, and came down to live among us.

  15. Six Arrows, oldest and youngest of our seven are seventeen years apart (plus one month and one day). But in my family the oldest and youngest are both boys and we youngest ones grew up in an area that didn’t have snow. That youngest brother ended up living with the oldest brother for a year or two several years ago in order to help him as he did work on his house.

    The tricky thing with such an age difference is that it’s hard for the older ones to recognize when the youngest ones are adults. One of my brothers admitted that he didn’t realize it until my younger sister got married (she was 27 and I was 28 when she married, and her husband was about six weeks older than I). He met my brother-in-law and wondered what “this man” was doing marrying his little sister, and then realized there was only a year between the spouses and that his younger siblings were likewise adults too.

  16. Adding to my comments on the rhythms of the species, each has its own place and time of day, too. For all the shots I took of local creatures, I got few shots of species in the water. There are quite a few species of fish, but they have their own realm, and other creatures live under the dirt, under the bark of trees, etc.

    And because lots of creatures come out only at night or mostly at night, I rarely get to photograph them. I no longer have a backyard and it isn’t safe to be on the trails after dark. So I have only one owl species, a skunk (my first sighting in nearly a decade), but no raccoons and no bats. I have photographed several dozen species of moths, largely from having scared them up as I walked across the grass, but most moths fly at night and I’ve seen comparatively few of them. The night creatures have their own place in the rhythm of the year.

  19. Sorry, Kathaleena, it always hurts to have a parent go before. Even when ready. After watching my mom go through cancer, we were willing to let her go. But to this day (she died nearly forty years ago) I wonder how she made certain things and what she was like as a person. (I was mid twenties when she died, just starting to get to know her). Though you had her for many more years than that, there will probably still be unsaid words and unasked questions. Death is so final….and yet….God.

  21. There is a memory I’ve been treasuring in my heart for a few years, one which I haven’t shared here yet. With all the mentions this week about what we’re grateful for, it seems like a good time to share my memory as I express my thankfulness for having a mother and father who love each other so deeply.

    My mother had back surgery a few years ago. My Midwest siblings and I took turns for about a week or so with helping Mom & Dad with things Mom normally did before her surgery and recovery time.

    I traveled to their house one day, stayed overnight, and left the next day during that period.

    Mom was pretty restless during my time there, wanting to get up and do things, but in quite a bit of pain whenever she’d try to get out of her recliner. I encouraged her to rest and reminded her I could assist with whatever she wanted done.

    As night fell, and Mom & Dad prepared to go to sleep in the living room — Mom in the recliner, where she slept during her recovery, and Dad on the couch, because it was more comfortable for him, with his back issues, too, than their bed at the time was — I sat in a chair in the living room, quietly reviewing the day in my mind.

    All fell silent, and I thought they would both soon be asleep, but it was too early for me to go to bed in the spare bedroom — it wasn’t even 8:00 at night — even though I was tired from caring for them. So I just sat a spell.

    A few minutes later, I saw Mom trying to hoist herself out of the recliner again. I was too weary (in my mind) to say anything that time, to ask Mom what she needed and how could I help. So I just sat, and said and did nothing.

    She managed to get out of the chair. Then I watched her walk over to the couch where Dad lay.

    She stopped. She took Dad’s hand, gave it a squeeze, and said, “Good night, Dad.” [She always calls him “Dad.”] And then she told him, “I prayed for you tonight.”

    Dad then gave a drowsy but clearly soothed, “Ahhh” and squeezed her hand back a few times.

    Mom lingered at his side a few seconds longer, then slowly walked back to the recliner and settled in.

    It was likely too dark in the room for them to see the tears shining in their daughter’s eyes.

    I don’t know if I’ve ever been so blessed as I was to be allowed by God to witness that loving exchange between two people who so treasure Christ and each other.

  24. NancyJill, I can help with that! First you have a tom and a hen, they do their thing and she lays an egg. Keep the egg warm for twenty eight days, turning three or four times a day. At twenty eight days, the poult should begin making an entrance. You then feed it chick starter, non medicated and keep it under a heat lamp until it feathers out. Let it run around the yard but keep food out for it. In about three months, the turkey is ready. If the first steps fail, go to the store.

    Peter, 11:05, I received that same email from Zoom. I suppose because I have the free version. I can actually teach Zoom piano lessons longer than 40 minutes, though, without having a paid account, because I send to only one family at a time.

  26. I mentioned on the WV Zoom Monday night that I learned that day that I would be getting a new student at the studio. So that will bring me up to 24 students.

    But then yesterday, one of my students that I have at home quit. So, one in, one out.

    The one who’s done started with me this past January, so he didn’t last very long. He was interested at first, but not by the end.

    Parent was a bit on the high-maintenance side. Late payments nearly every month; last-minute cancellations for flimsy reasons, etc., etc.

    It’s just as well they stopped.

    I have a student on my home waiting list who might be able to fill the spot. Or the student who comes before the one who quit has a little bit of a challenge getting here on time. She has to actually be dismissed early from school to arrive on time. She does have permission to do that, but now with winter coming / basically here, they’ll need even more time to get here, as her school is about 10 miles of back roads from our house. They might appreciate being offered a lesson time that is a half-hour later.

    Since I was out and about, I picked up a bunch of silly Christmas odds and ends at the Dollar Store to send Stargazer. He’s thinking between Seattle and CA, he probably should stay home for Christmas–the first time ever.

    So, I’m indulging myself in sending a box of silly items. The Adorables all wrote Christmas cards and enough other drawings and snowflakes that I can send one for every day of Advent. It’s the little things.

  35. There was some confusion as to if X would have another visitation with Boy this weekend after being with him tomorrow for Thanksgiving. Nightingale held her ground that Thanksgiving should count as the week’s visitation, but also allowed two extra hours.

    When this strict visitation with supervision was decided on earlier this year, it was supposed to be temporary, until their next court date in June. But with Covid, the courts have not been in session, so what is in place stays in place. Nightingale is happy with the way things are, and says she has seen an improvement in Boy’s behavior and attitude since he hasn’t spent as much time with X.

    The only other holiday to come along before now was Easter, but that merely meant that the usual Saturday visit was switched to Sunday, so there was no problem or question.

  37. Peter, I assume you don’t mean she insists all her foods are GMO (as the double negative implies)?

    We’re on Thanksgiving leftovers after having our meal Monday, so I’ve already had two turkey meals with all the fixings, turkey with rice soup (I froze most of it but kept a couple servings in the fridge) and a turkey sandwich. I hadn’t cooked a turkey in three or four years (last year there was some concern about our oven and we didn’t dare buy one, and the years before that we were preparing to move or settling in), and it’s one of my favorite meats, so it’s nice to have enough for several meals and to freeze. My typical meal at a restaurant is a turkey sandwich, as long as they don’t serve lunch-meat turkey. Having several packages of turkey in the freezer will give me good meals for the next few months.
