One of the recent positive news items that has been popping up lately is the comet Neowise. It was discovered earlier this year and apparently there are only a few more days left for people to be able to see it this month. After that, the next time the comet is scheduled to come near Earth is 6,800...
There are people who are slowly moving back to normal due to the COVID-19 pandemic, others have been moving more quickly and some never made any changes at all.

The Bob Dylan song “The Times They Are a-Changin’” is one that seems very appropriate over the last few months. Dylan’s song was released in 1964, another time of changes, social unrest, racial tension, protests, and an ongoing war. There was even an influenza pandemic, but that came near the end...

There’s the old saying about March that if it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, or vice versa. So far March has been more like a lamb with temperatures in a pleasant range and little to no snow. If the saying holds true we could have some snowstorms later this month, but we will see...
Time is the one thing that many of us wish we had more of, although in about a week’s, well, time we have two events that deal with the changing of time.
