House Lit & Decorated For Halloween 2019 — With 6-Weeks To Go!

All Teischan’s work — today, 6-weeks ahead of Halloween, and she is complaining that she was LATE!

Christmas & then Halloween are her two favorite holidays — Easter a distant third and Thanksgiving not even making her radar.

Lights and decorations are her thing. She has been doing the lights on her own. All I have to do is keep her supplied with lights. I got some fancy flame lights for the front door. Upside down flame. Pretty cool.

Given that she put up the Christmas lights on November 19th last year, I assume we will just go from these lights straight to the Christmas ones. The infrastructure with the timers etc. is all in place.

What can I say?

Makes her happy. Keeps her happy.

P.S., I have been informed that she is TOO OLD to go trick or treating this year! Well, I will believe it on the day. This could be the END of OVER 20-years of taking kids trick-or-treating! Yes, over 20-years. 4-kids, widely spaced.

U.S. House Approves $1 ‘Christa McAuliffe’ Coin To Be Minted -> Proceeds To Benefit ‘FIRST Robotics’.

This is BIG for New Hampshire & the FIRST Robotics program. The bill to make this happen passed the U.S. House this last Thursday with bipartisan support.

The bill instructs the U.S. Mint to issue 350,000 $1 silver coins to commemorate Christa Mcauliffe, the NH science teacher who died in the January 1986 ‘Challenger’ Space Shuttle disaster. The proceeds from the sale of this coin will go to benefit the FIRST Robotics initiative.

The bill, however, has to be be approved by Donald Trump. That should not be a problem, since Christa, in marked contrast to Harriet Tubman, is white & good-looking. Well, it had to be said, and few others will, though they will think it.
