Santa's Helpers

We have such a great time at Choir Practice. Lots of laughs, and giggles. Thank goodness Sharon takes charge and puts us back on the road to singing. Thank you Sharon for your contribution tonight - caught you "practicing" for the big event. Hope you will drop by our FB Page and give us a like - it would be awesome to hear from some folks outside our little town. 
Just follow the link or copy and paste.

Cheers and Thank you....

Every day........

Every day the heart creates enough energy to drive a truck twenty miles.
In a lifetime, that is equivalent to driving to the moon and back. So, when you tell someone you love them "to the moon and back", you're essentially saying you will love them with all the blood your heart pumps your whole life, which I think is equally as meaningful.

Supermoon Monday

The November "SUPERMOON" tomorrow evening will be the closest to Earth since 1948. It should be bright enough to read by moonlight, so I hear.
In astronomical terms, we're about to get up close and personal with our moon - SUPER CLOSE, one might say.
When a full moon reaches its closest point to our planet in its elliptical orbit, that is called a Supermoon, or "perigee" in scientific terms.....and, this month's Supermoon tomorrow evening is going to be the closest we've come to our orbiting neighbour in almost seven decades, and it won't happen again until 2034.
At perigee,the moon is about 14 percent closer than when it's at its farthest point from Earth, which will make it appear 14 percent bigger in the sky - hence, it'll also shine about 30 per cent more light onto us. Once it gets high in the sky, then its like a huge light that's been turned on - even somewhere dark, you won't need a flashlight to even read. I shall check this out for myself tomorrow evening. I am not sure exactly where I shall watch, but I know a spot out in Oak Bay that may work. Regardless, I am looking forward to catching some of this "bright light" in the dark of the night. Hope some of you get to enjoy it as well. Cheers,

Remembrance Day Remembered

For the sake of those we never knew
We trooped into the hall
Where their names in golden letters
Were written on the wall.

Somebody sounded a bugle
And ghosts seemed everywhere
Until the last note softly fell
On the suddenly empty air.

Then the world filled up with the living
In its own accustomed way,
With the usual busy traffic
Of the usual busy day.

But, what I most remember
And know that I always will
Is how we stood utterly silent
And absolutely still.

A tree of few words, Groot is an Alien known by the Kree as a Floral Colossus. He originated from "Planet X" and it was thought that his species had been extinct. Groot was first seen when he landed on Earth with his space-ship and threatened humanity as one of the Marvel Monsters in the Marvel Age of Monsters. It was his purpose to conquer planet Earth. He used some trees from Earth to become his soldiers. Groot was however soon defeated by a clever human which used termites on him. Groot fell to the ground and seemingly perished. He was not heard from for many years after his initial encounter with humanity.
Eventually Groot resurfaced when his body was taken by the "Collector", a cosmic creature that collected different rare species from the universe. It was him that revived Groot once more.
Groot was freed from captivity by the "Mole Man", roamed Earth for quite some time, fought against the Incredible Hulk, along with a number of other Marvel Monsters. He went on to be recruited by the "Howling Commandos", that was a team compromised of monster-like heroes.
Some years later Groot started changing his ways and became a force for the good. He joined a team of space superheroes - Groot became best friends with Rocket Raccoon. Rocket dutifully waters a twig he took off Groot in yet another battle and Groot returns once more to join Starlord's revamp of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Groot eventually received his very own ongoing series, in which Groot and Rocket explore the far reaches of the galaxy.
Groot made an appearance in our very own neighbourhood on Hallowed Eve, protector of children, disguised for the evening of trick or treating. It sure was nice to meet him and when we shook hands, I felt a little twig settle in the palm of my hand, assuring me all children in his care would be safe during this night.

And The Season Moves On.....

Folks around here have gone suddenly from fall jackets to toques n winter jackets.....and in a matter of days filled with heavy rain and high winds....all those pretty leaves have gone....sigh.
Fall leaves fall, die, flowers, away -
Lengthen night and shorten day,
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow,
Blossom where the rose should grow -
I shall sing when night's decay,
Ushers in a drearier day.
Emily Bronte

Brilliant Colours........

Brilliant colours are filling our County. The snap to colder weather, not only brought out the magnificent beauty, but also brought high winds from the north to shake many trees free of their beauty. Walking through ankle deep leaves and playing....sigh....ain't life grand :)
Can you find me?
Is a Halloween creature lurking somewhere?
St. Croix River
My Fishin' Pond
Great Aunti n Kyle
Signing out from Canada.....until later, Eh...

I've only just been........

Many hours have passed since I last posted. For myself, I had an excellent break away, popping in now and then to read your posts. Much has been accomplished.... from renovations in house, straight out to the yard. We worked hard all summer, and are most happy with the end result. Time with family and friends, new beginnings and loss, repair and repaired. Even though I have not been posting, I have had each of you on my mind now and then. Thank you for your email and FB chatter and keeping me up to date in your Blogger Land.
By The Bay frequently with family and friends
House n Yard major replacement.....
Riding with great friends
....and, always a brilliant sunset each night.  There's more to tell, but first, let me catch up with each of you and do some serious reading. Cheers.

Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really really nice, Eh.

I have a Prime Minister, not a President
I speak "Maritime" English and French, 
and I pronounce it "aboot", not about.

I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack -
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and that last letter of the alphabet -
is prounced "zed", not "zee", but "zed"....
Canada is the second largest landmass,
the first nation of hockey;
and I love my Country
From Sea To Shining Sea.

My name is SaucyKod
.....and I am CANADIAN :)

On July 4, 1776, thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States -  Independence Day. Happy July 4th to my southern neighbours, friends and relatives. May your Independence Day be every bit as bright as my Canada Day.

Lepreau Falls...

Lepreau Falls

There is so much more to see, when you LOOK.....
A "cam" day on the water...
