The march of the zebra mussel continues
Last week, at our family cabin on Lake Amelia in Pope County, the news went rapidly around the shoreline. Zebra mussels have been found in the lake. Some were nearly panicked, most were somewhat concerned but some were also almost nonchalant about it. Their thoughts were, it was only a matter of time, considering nearby Lake Minnewaska was found to be infested in 2012.

Sirius, the Dog Star, and another dog
Our brightest star, Sirius, is magnificent right now during this time we call the dog days of summer. It was just below the half moon at dark this past weekend, July 21 and 22.
Sure, to most of us, it is a time when we all get "sluggish." (Think about the derivation of that word for a minute). Our dogs would gladly dig in beneath the front porch for cooling, if we had a front porch.
