Happy Solstice

I'm a day late but happy solstice to all. The days start getting longer now.

Thanks Griff. I was wondering why you were a day late. This is a tradition here.

See how this thread and accompanying photo documentation could make some want to stay in the Igloo curled up under the Bear Skin rugs with a warm Eskimo lady until the Summer Solstice. Worked for Anthony Quinn for a while. The key seems to be knowing when to head back to to town at the right time. Person stay too long they wind up harpooned or seems like that was the jist of it.

I really enjoy the shorter days and winter. If that's what you can call it down here in SE Louisiana.

Well here in the Great North, we are having a heat wave of a whole 23* with a slight and mild 3mph South Westerly, making a wing chill of 21*....

Thinking a person would not have normally noticed but since some have been yakking about it..seems like today was a bit longer than yesterday come to thunk on it. Its enough to get some conflicted on the topic no doubt. It just dont seem right. ]
