Without dear, beloved, all mighty Sol we would be NOTHING.

I have always appreciated that everything is only possible because of mighty Sol.

I have been a sun worshipper most of my life — at least since I was a teenager and was able to work out what is what.

When I entered ‘Mill Hill’ and had to declare my religion I wrote, with pride, ‘Sun Worshipper‘.

So, here I am. Making sure that Sol knows that we AWAIT his return.

Sam Mtukudzi, Oliver’s Son, Also Now Dead (At 21) — Was As Good As Dad, Maybe Better!

Click to access my post from a couple of weeks ago.


YouTube introduced I to Sam Mtukudzi just a couple of days ago. Since then I have been listening to him, on YouTube, whenever I get a chance. He is good. As good as his father? Maybe better.

I can’t get over that they are BOTH now dead! One at 66 (my age) and the other, even more tragically, 9-years ago, at 21. Wow. What a loss. Appears that he died under suspicious circumstances.

I kind of, vaguely, was aware that Oliver had a son. But, I had not paid any attention. Maybe now that I think about it, I might have also heard about the death but didn’t give it much heed since it was Zimbabwe! Yikes.

Sam is good. Brilliant. Has the same sound as the father.

I wanted to make sure that you got to hear him. Start at YouTube. You will thank me for this. SMILE.

First Time Using My ‘Cub Cadet’, 3X (3-Stage), 26″ TRAC Snowblower — December 2, 2019.

Very first time. I have NEVER used a snowblower before! So, this was all new to me. Plus, of the two REVERSE speeds only ‘R2’ was working. So, had to figure that out.

It was OK. It is a heavy beast. It does move snow and does so fast. I am sure I will like it more when I am more used to it.

I still went back and shoveled by hand! Smile.

Thought this will amuse

All 3 2019 Christmas Trees Are Now Lit — Big 2 Still Need To Be Decorated.

by Anura Guruge

They will look much better when fully decorated. That will be in the next two days. Today was just the lights.

The little, artificial tree is decorated but has new ornaments added daily — partly because the 2019 Lego ‘Friends Advent Calendar’ is doing tree ornaments this year.

I will keep you posted.

I Went For A Walk In The Snowstorm Last Night & It Was Entrancing.

Part of my latest ‘fitness’ (if you could call it that when it applies to I) regime is walking at night. I was not going to let a ‘little’ snow stop me. It was enchanting. I always feel so privileged and blessed. I live for moments like this. This is peace. This is happiness. Costs me nothing. I don’t need a gym membership. Just some decent boots and crampons on my walking stick. SMILE.
