The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Not me in the picture but a nice view of the coast around these parts

As I write this our friends Ivan and Anne are motoring north from New York City with their kayak on top of their little car. We are going to have a weekend of fun. Tomorrow we are going out to kayak and a picnic at an estuary that flows into the sea and on Monday we are going sailing with another dear friend in her 80's who has a summer house on the water. We start the weekend at a birthday party for a dear friend tonight.

The weather will be accommodating at it is now in the mid-70's, a perfect Maine weekend is ahead of us.

I was just outside cutting up some pieces of wood that we recently got and our 5th grade neighbor girl helped me move it all onto our big wood pile that will need to be stacked in the spring. Our little friend spent the night here last night after we took her out for pizza in reward for her exceptional efforts to work with Mary Beth throughout the summer on her reading. This morning she and MB made pancakes. Since MB never had kids the little gal is a joy in her life - and mine too.

Yesterday we had to pull up all of our many tomato plants that had been stricken with the blight. It was the most bountiful tomato crop we've ever had and it broke all of our hearts to have to destroy them. I was able to salvage a big bowl full of green tomatoes so I intend to cook them up in the next couple of days - nothing better than fried green tomatoes.
