Thursday night was bittersweet for Ben, Gary and me. We closed down Communicycle at McKendree. For six years we provided truly affordable bicycle, bicycle repair and bicycle maintenance instruction to hundreds of youth and adults in the Lawrenceville area. It was a good run but it was time to shut it down. Thank you, McKendree UMC, for the support. Thank you, Ben and Gary, for your help.

Happy Candlemas!

Today is Candlemas. You have no excuse left to not take down your Christmas decorations.

It’s also Groundhog Day. Yesterday was Embolc or St. Brigid’s Day.

Why are these days all hitting on the first two days of February? It has to do with the seasons. It is exactly halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. You will have noticeably more sun today than you have been use to over the past six weeks. Herdsmen will need to be watching for new editions to their herds and its time to start preparing your garden.
