Potato Heads Up

Images

This is why should rub your car windshield with a potato. How many times have woke up to find a cold frozen car windshield?

My old friend, who I like o call Brother Moon says this not only is delaying the departure to our destination, but it is a nuisance and a hassle.  Our options are to scrape off the ice or deice the windshield with a store-bought or homemade deicer or use a cut piece of potato. https://youtu.be/AErz6zswKxc

Seasons Greetings from #CityImages. This is the first full week of the most wonderful three months and our favorite time of the year.

And so it begins... The best trimester of the year. Regardless of whether you're using the ancient Aztec Calendar or not.

We enjoy these three months because October's still Hispanic History Month, UB’s birthday, and then followed by Halloween. November is Thanksgiving, a time to enjoy family and friends. December is Christmas, a time when everyone feels special.

Americans love lawns but let's face it: Nice yards take time.

Just think about all the weekend hours you've spent cutting, watering, fertilizing, and weeding for that elusive green grass. In fact, I have friends and neighbors who turned their back-yard into a brick patio. Their front is a cactus rock garden. They too said no to grass.

They don’t visit very often, but when cicadas come here, you hear, and see them so clear, you’d wish they no longer were anywhere near.

Brood X Cicadas are about to return in droves after their protracted gestation period and the bugs don’t really know what happened while they were underground for the last 17 years.
