Monday Musings - January 2, 2016

1. Happy January 2, 2017. There are 51 Monday's left in the year.

The Christmas Tree
2. My idea of a White Christmas involves white sand on a sunny warm beach somewhere with palm trees.

3. One of the great questions of the holiday season is, "When should the Christmas Tree come down?"

4. A new subway line opened in New York City yesterday and everyone is very excited according to the New York Times. It is the Second Avenue Subway.

5. Queen Elizabeth is still feeling under the weather and missed church again. I'm not sure why that is news, but it is being widely reported. I have been watching the Netflix channel program The Crown with great interest especially for its historical views of Queen Elizabeth's early years as the Queen of England.

6. I have a holiday today! It is New Year's Day Observed!

7. The neighborhood is growing darker at night as people turn off their Christmas lights. It is a bit sad that the festivity of the holiday season has ended so abruptly.

8. With my football team out of the playoffs, it is now baseball season! Although the Orioles have not announced the date for pitchers and catchers to report it is likely to be February 12-14, about 41 days away.

9. There is snow in the forecast for the next ten days, complete with some accumulation.

10. We are less than three weeks from Inauguration Day! Hopefully the animosity between the outgoing and incoming administrations will settle down a bit
