IN TEXAS there is no snow in winter, but luckily I took many snow images
to keep me reminded how it was to live in the forest at 3000 feet.
The above was my original text! What do you know?
on Sunday 9 am it started SNOWING and
it snowed all day long – a very fine powdery snow!
Snow is on the country side is a treat

Blast of the past
Two of the oddest things I learned when moving from
the city to the forest. There are certain “burn days.”
The burning of leaves, wood, branches. The only thing
needed is a permit (one phone call) and call the
Fire Department you are burning leaves today.
These fires often burn for longer than a day, so you need to be prepared to have a water hose close by, and a shovel |
to throw dirt on the fire when it goes out of hand.
The first time was nerve wrecking (what if I burn down the forest?), but one gets used to it!
Also it helps that on those days usually several people are burning wood. The fun thing is you smell several smells in the neighborhood (each wood has its own smell when burning).
The other little tidbit is about the image below. In front we had several of these Manzanita trees (below) with pretty red trunks. We were warned that you NEVER put this in your wood stove. This wood gets so hot that it explodes. You would not want to set your house on fire!
Textiles for vacation (am already thinking about it, haha)
1994 and now I’m retired. To be a Doctor was
quite a different role than to be a graduate student
PS Recently there was someone who thought Jill Biden was not a real doctor
and should not call herself that way, because she was not a medical doctor,
but had her doctorate in Education.
Even though I agree that her dissertation was not the best,
this guy showed his ignorance though, because a doctorate
is a DEGREE, not a specification of study. So everyone
with a doctoral degree is “a doctor,”
not only one who has studied medicine!
I think I deserved it, having had experience
in 5 types of facilities, and a full time year at the end,
comparable to a medical residency.
