Harvest Moon Greets Season of Autumn

 

The full moon closest to the autumnal equinox is always called the Harvest Moon. This year the moon is full on September 21 and autumn begins on September 23.

Usually the moon rises about 50 minutes later each night. During the harvest moon, it rises just 30 minutes later. This lingering moonlight once proved extremely useful to those who farmed the land. Bringing in the crops was often done by the light of the shimmering harvest moon.

A BEAUTIFUL SUNSHINY DAY

 

While kayaking at Chain O' Lakes State Park in northern Indiana, I followed a butterfly as she led the way through the channels. Then suddenly, she landed on the water, and with the weight of the water on her tiny wings, she was not able to lift herself up to fly. She called to my spirit for help.

Paddling over to her, I scooped her up in the palm of my hand and brought her into the kayak with me. She perched on a life vest, and I paddled out of the channel into...

A BYTE OF KNOWLEDGE

Details

Here Kitty Kitty

 

This byte of knowledge focuses on Apple's latest edition of their operating system Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar. Over the past year and a half Apple's Mac OS X has evolved from a great innovation to a reality of full productivity, simplicity and compatibility.

Just by looking at the box and Cds you see a wild Jaguar skin print on the box. This I see as a symbol of Apple's dedication to design and graphics. After updating my system to 10.2 I noticed speed improvements in the...
