What a Year


It's been a record-setting year in many places. 

Here in British Columbia we've had our hottest year ever recorded, our wettest year on record and, now, it looks like we'll put 2021 in the books as our coldest year.

It will also be the first full year under a pandemic. We might be in store for another.

Well, I'd better cut this short. I need to get some firewood in. 

Merry Christmas, everyone.


  1. Dry wood and easy water
    Blessings pilgrim

  2. We live in a desperate world often devoid of conscience.
    Whilst we cry the restrictive life of Covid , heat and floods many in this world actually suffer climate change with no hope in the future.
    FFS when my neighbours complain of the restrictions of winter travel whilst these poor buggers , https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/24/at-least-six-dead-after-third-migrant-boat-in-three-days-sinks-in-greek-waters, risk their lives to just survive I fear we are the pampered beyond the realities of the world.

    Blessings , indeed for whom?


    1. I share your sentiments, Trailblazer. We are undergoing change and it's not for the better. Instead of setting aside differences to unite behind a common cause, we're taking the reciprocal course of disunity, suspicion, even paranoia. It's bloody minded tribalism at its worst.

      Let's work for something better in 2022.

  3. Merry Christmas and once again, thanks for hosting this sandbox.

    2. And a Merry Christmas to you, NPoV. A Blue Christmas indeed. I had hoped to attend a Blue Christmas service this year in memory of my departed younger brother. I had hoped there would be a Sally Ann service but I found out after the fact that it was held at the local United Church on the afternoon of the 12th. As you probably know I'm quite secular but these non-denominational services for the bereaved do seem to help.
