It was nice to get break from rain this afternoon, and the opportunity to see a sunset at Scargo tower. The skies were ablaze! Enjoy!

Announcement to my devoted readership: My promised “Biblical foot-washing practices” blog will have to wait until next month, as instead I discuss politics. But don’t worry, folks, this is as political as I get…
The conventions are over and the presidential candidates and their supporters have had their say. The election season is now in full swing toward a November vote and an uncertain future. God help us!
Why are people sports fans? The word "fan" is actually just a shortened version of the word "fanatic." Even in the days of the Boston Red Sox "Royal Rooters" in the early 1900s, obnoxious supporters would taunt opponents from seats along the third base line. Obviously Boston fans have matured in the last 100 years. And by "matured," I mean gotten worse.
The assassination of the US Ambassador to Libya has put the country back on the front page one year after its leader was murdered on the order of President Obama and Tripoli surrendered to mercenaries of the western powers.
The question here in the US seems to center on who could have harbored such deep-seated ill will toward a friendly diplomat from a country that had spear-headed an “humanitarian intervention” to save the Libyans from being slaughtered by a hated dictator trying to hold on to power?
Good Lawd, he's got another Indian ad!

It was a frigid January night in 1994. A robust early winter snow had draped Falmouth in a thick blanket of white. My friend Ron “Ronnie D” DeSouza was home on leave from the Army, so we headed over to Finnegan’s Pub in the old Falmouth Mall for an after dinner drink (or two).

Have you ever had the chance to walk the empty north side beaches in the fall when the air is breezy, the sky is partly cloudy, the tide is out and the flats are exposed. I did that tonight for the first time, and what a time, the only thing to be heard was the wind blowing across the flats, the birds around me, and the waves rolling in lap, after lap against the shore line now about an 1/8 of a mile or more from the high tide mark. The flats were rippled from the retreating waters combined with the breezes that were blowing earlier tonight.
Tracy and I were doing a hike on Long Beach in centerville this morning seemed to be walking forever into the wild wind. We got to the end of the point and met local musician Michael playing his guitar. We decided to put this all together into a sun salute. Maybe a wind salute? Have fun! tomorrow we'll post the video of Tracy teaching tree pose to him .
I recently rode in a friend’s car. By the time I got home, my lungs felt tight and I was coughing. I knew immediately the air freshener in the car was the culprit. It was one of those new clip on air fresheners filled with a “scent” to eliminate car odors like food, dirt, and cigarette smoke. I decided I must post about this on my blog!
I find, as my children get older, they desire more expensive items for birthdays and holidays. Clearly, this is something I struggle with as a frugalista. Shopping for children should not be difficult but alas, I find it increasingly so as my kids grow.
We're back! On this episode of "Barnstable Today", learn about tomorrow's mooring wait list lottery; hear what the Economic Development Commission is exploring; and find out the latest on the cost of municipal health insurance.
I have been away soaking up the wonderful, warm sun of California for two weeks. I was relaxed and enjoyed life with no rushing with deadlines or stress. How we all need that gift. I guess we have to make the time for it and stop talking about taking that special trip. Life is too short to miss opportunities for ourselves.
