In reading many Blogs and Writer's websites, they all have one thing in common and that is they like to share what they know or have learned.

What I shared this week on Facebook that I found to be quite hilarious, was a cartoon picture of what was supposed to be Stephen King reading his first work while in school and the students were running out of the classroom for their lives.

It was very funny and possibly quite true, as I was told that he did share his work at school. Whether this is true or not, I really do not know.


Weatherman says two or three more weeks of winter. I am really tired of all the cold and snow. We have had nearly, or more than, 90 inches this year. We normally get around 66 inches.
Enough of this winter, bring on spring.

The real true way of knowing that spring is almost here is when the Red-Winged Black birds come back from the south. The warm temperatures come and stay about a week or two after they show up. Of course last year, they arrived and then we had another harsh week. Poor birds were probably quite confused about the cold weather still being here.

It used to be that people would say when the Robins come back, but in the last 10 to 20 years not all the Robins have been migrating south, which brings us back to the true indicator the Red-Winged Black bird.


Look for them along the highways, sitting on anything that will hold them.

The title of this Blog is an old saying that comes from:

"Daniel Defoe, appears to be the first to have used the 'share and share alike' version. That was is Robinson Crusoe, or as he called it The life and strange adventures of Robinson Crusoe, 1719:


'He declar'd he had reserv'd nothing from the Men, and went Share and Share alike with them in every Bit they eat.'"

I try to share something every time I update this Blog.  It would be real nice if some of you shared what was going on in your life.  We all would be interested in reading about what is going on in your world.

Please leave a comment and share!

Until next time,
John

I am sure you are like me and are ready to say that we don't want to see any more snow for a long time.

 

Problem is that it is not over for us.  We are supposed to get more this weekend on the 8th. 

 

Besides the snow, this has to be one of the coldest winters we have had in a very long time.  I hate winter with a passion.

 

What have you been doing to stay warm and when you are snowed in?

 

Leave a message below and let us all know.

 

Myself, I have been on my Amateur Radio working a lot of stations around the world. Just a week ago, I worked the 5th most wanted country in the world, Amsterdam Island.

 

That was really great, since it is as far away from us you can go before you are heading back.

 

Now it is your turn, last month we had one comment from a reader in Terre Haute. 

 

How about some of you write us and let us know what is going on in your world.

 

We would love to hear from you.

 

Stay warm and safe.

 

Fill the page with comments.

 

Until,

John
