Notes from the Heart...

It's official!  It's going to be a colder than usual fact according to The
Old Farmer’s Almanac we're going to have a cooling (not warming) trend in the
decades ahead.  So, what's up with that?  Turns out folks at the Almanac don't use
carbon footprints but sun spots in predicting weather.  According to their
calculations of these sun spots and its effect on the oceans show that cold -- not
warm -- climate is in the stars -- or rather, the sun -- for the next 50 years.  Here in
New England the Almanac predicts lots of heavy snow for this winter.  Last year
the Almanac was right on the money with "above normal" snowfall in the
Northeast (yup, it was WAY above what's normal!)  In case you didn't know, The
Old Farmer's Almanac is North America's oldest continuously published
periodical.  If you've ever been curious what the little hole in the corner is for --
well, it originally was put there so that it can hang in the outhouse.   ~ Marcia

You would think two fairly intelligent homeowners-to-be would have gotten the
hint when, during construction, the builder told us they had “hit ledge”.  

Recipe: New England Blueberry Muffins
I am not sure why these muffins seem so much better than similar recipes, but,
whenever Joanne has tried another, she always returns to this one.
