It is a bitter cold time in our part of the world. The temperature has not risen above -5C for twelve days, which is unusual. Though today was sunny it was especially bitter: -11C with a brisk wind blowing.

This is my last cross-post to Facebook. Once again I invite those followers to click the link to my blog and follow me by email. Or you can add the URL to your favourites and visit at your pace. If FB followers prefer not to follow either way, thank you very much for liking and commenting on my posts for the past three-plus years.

I will take Wednesday off and return Thursday.
