Today's Jewel

Chickens are slow in coming from unlaid eggs.
Old Farmer's 2011 Almanac 03/10/11~

While I love the Farmer's Almanac and religiously purchase one each new year (in fact this year I purchased both the Old Farmer's Almanac and the Harrowsmith's Canadian Almanac) - it often amounts to nothing more than a collection of the oddest bits of useless information, which I eagerly share here!

I did find this Thought for the Day very edifying though. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac: 

'People are slowing down, increasing social contacts, and feeling less pressure to buy, buy, buy. Finding 'the satisfaction of enough' is a lasting road to less stress and greater happiness'.

This is indeed a good trend, should it prove true.


  1. I love that kind of useless information though... a lot of it is just so interesting. And I do so agree with you on that last quote.

  2. I agree, we all need to stop the insanity! This buy, buy, buy mentality is so unnecessary.

  3. I admit that I'm drawn to lists of useless information - did you know that bats always turn left when exiting a cave? Lol - well you do now!

  4. Lorene, you are so right. Just looking at the pics from the devastation in Japan makes one realize (once again) how quickly all our 'stuff' wouldn't matter anymore.
