Yes, Minnesota can get really hot in the summers: 90s are normal, 100s aren't so rare, and it's humid besides. I hate that. I'm sure we're at or near the top for biggest difference of temps in the country (sometimes literally within a day or two). As for the niceness, I don't know about that. "Minnesota nice" is a cliche, but I think a lot of it is more passive-aggressiveness than anything. And just try getting anything done at a 4-way-stop intersection, with everyone trying to out-nice everyone else, waving one another forward...maddening!

And really, if you ever moved here, Minneapolis is the superior town ... (said the Minneapolitan).

What did I do today? So far, not much. Working from home, so I made a bigger breakfast than usual.

Haven't watched much TV lately, the last two days watched sporting events .
Yesterday around noon I tuned in to a Premier League game, Liverpool vs Suddersfield. Had never heard of the latter before but decided to root for them because they wore blue striped shirts. They held Liverpool to one goal: unfortunately, they got "nil."

 today I fixed my Mother's emergency alert system (press a button and it connects you with someone who notifies emergency personnel -have had to use it numerous times these past few years). But now our landline system isn't working...

Half heartedly watched the Saints play the Ravens, assuming that once again the Ravens would win. Wrong. The Saints are living a charmed life right now, winning two games due to "gifts" by the opposition's kickers.

I forgot this thread. Anyhoo, tried to cook pancakes but given I'm world's worst cook, they turned up super imbalanced - some side fat, the other super thin. It isn't edible either. Maybe will give food to stray dogs & winter birds that didn't fly to south. The cat gets really poetic in winter & sits in windowsill looking at snow flakes falling hypnotized few hours.

I've never had much luck with pancakes. The edges are burnt and the center's uncooked.
It rarely snows here but love when it does - as long as I don't have to go anywhere. It's usually a gentle snowfall, big fat flakes . I've heard it referred to as "snowing handkerchiefs."
 And like your kitty, the effect on me is hypnotic and relaxing.
No snow around here anytime soon though. Temperature got back up to nearly 30C today. Supposedly it will turn a little cooler later this week.

To the pancake subject: Thin pancakes cooked at 7-day Maslenitsa holiday = "crepes".

Severe cold, fog December begin. Cat stays in the house, zero walk arrangements. People must quit walking dogs as well. I'd seen poor stray lying rolled up in the dry surface with less snow, shaking, trying to be warm - bottom line: smb. should adopt. If it bites, still adopt to prevent freezing in cold. They'll get used to people & quit biting. Maybe.

Hello, it's me again. 3D Ha! Chime in here to tell what's with day to day selective news by NBBF? Liked reading 'em, esp. cat-related news, not politics, baseball-football, whatever. Hey, N, resume the posts about yoursees catsees. 3D

Not much to say. Spent last night with my Mother in the emergency room of a hospital. Problem with one of her medicines . Got that taken care of, she's feeling better, and we're home. Waiting for overnight sitter so that I can maybe have some sleep tonight.
Maybe later on there will be something interesting to mention.
I did watch a live performance of "Forever" - the concert at Central Park, 1971.

Checked nice early 20th cent. greeting cards. Would be cool to print them, write down friends' names (Daiana, Sonya), give to friends. They can read English well-wishes. I dislike creating well-wishes, prefer cards with written text. It saves time.
