The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2While walking a few fairways this morning, I was distracted by the colors of some of the trees.  The shades are starting to emerge, and the colors are especially striking.The photo above was shot last week, but there are a lot of other trees trying to catch up now.  Over the next week there will be a much larger change and then there will be nothing but piles on the ground and bare trees.The colors are beautiful but short lived.The Colors Of Fall Are Coming 2

Some Roadside Mechanics Take Too LongAs I was driving back from an appointment this week, I noticed an unusual site just off the roadway.The car was pulled far enough off the road, but evidently the repair was a little beyond his abilities as it appears he had been there for a while.His passengers were equally as frustrated.The car is a 1928 Ford Model A Woody Wagon.  Don't know the age of the mechanic or his passengers.Some Roadside Mechanics Take Too Long

The Colors Of Fall Are ComingWe are into  very colorful time of year in Connecticut but there is no set schedule for it's arrival.  It's all based on the weather and with the amount of rain we have had this year, the colors should pop.For me, the colors seem to be just a bit brighter on a golf course, possibly because there is so much open grass area to allow the trees to stand out a bit more. Hopefully not hiding my ball as well.On this fairway, I took a photo Sunday afternoon of a tree stand trying to make a change.And after our Zoom call I met up with some friends to play a few holes and as if overnight a burst of color.While the day itself was sunny Tuesday vs an overcast sky on Sunday, it was still a beautiful sight.The added advantage for me as someone else would be raking these l...

This past Thursday, thanks to my good friend  Ed Silva, I had the pleasure to MeetUp with the one and only Carol Williams .  I doubt there is any ActiveRain member, who is regularly on ActiveRaian, that does not know Carol.  Carol is also one of the regular Weekly ActiveRain ZOOM Meeting attendees, and contributor.When Carol made it know she was going to be within a short distance of CT while on her cross country road trip, Ed reached out to her about meeting up with her.  Carol not only agreed, but she even changed her plans, and drove to CT.  Ed than reached out to a few of us who regularly attended the past MeetUps in CT, many of which were hosted by Dagny Eason. Ed than arranged for us to MeetUp at a small Middle Eastern Restaurant called Kibberia.  This was the first time those in ...

20 Years Later, A New Order To Our LivesAs people were preparing to go about another routine day, events were unfolding that would shock our country and the world.  At airports in the East coast, people boarded planes and prepared for flights.As best as can be acknowledged, groups of flight trained terrorists, commandeered 4 domestic flights and  set to their agenda.The first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade center in New York City shorty after 8:30 Am.  Within minutes, the South Tower was also hit.In Washington DC, a 3rd plane struck the Pentagon building, and alert passengers, listening to news in a fourth plane intended to hit the White House, retook the plane, which crashed into a field in Pennsylvania.With so little information available, government authorities put t...

Happy Labor Day 2021Labor Day is a Federal holiday in the United State celebrated on the first Monday in September in any given year to honor and recognize the American Labor movement  and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.  Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade unions and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. "Labor Day" was promoted by the Central Labor Union, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day. Canada's Labour Day is also celebrated on the first ...
