Krampus Campaigns For Obama 2012

Until you catch sight of Krampus and his Obama campaign sign, you can help him in his work of promoting the 2012 Obama campaign from an unusuahttp://www.cafepress.com/irregulargoods.497291473l angle. Start by placing a Krampus for Obama lapel sticker on your Krampus for Obama t-shirt. [...]

The Horned God Is The Reason For The Season?

Damh the Bard sings of the Horned God as the reason for the season. When will he sing specifically of the revels of Krampus? [...]

The Solstice is the Reason for the Season

The tilt of the Earth, half-shrouded in darkness, is the reason it gets so dark and cold this time of year. The commemoration of the blanket of darkness and the wait for light’s return at the solstice has been the reason for the celebration of the season for a long time, long before the strategic [...]

For Congressional Election, Pay Attention To Current Climate Research

If you’ve got a congressional candidate, like Ken Buck, who claims that global warming is a hoax, you’ve either got a candidate who is too ignorant to understand what the facts are, or too unscrupulous to care what the facts are. [...]

The light is low and short even at the southern window where the pot sits, yet slowly, extremely slowly, a few of the dianthus shoots are growing, giving me hope for more color in the year to come. [...]

The Final Flowers of 2009

Less than one minute after I took this photograph, a snow began to fall which covered these flowers. Even the English primrose will not, I think, persist in blooming now.

A Sprouting Problem With Warm Winter Weather

The plants are taking energy from their bulbs to create nice, long greens that won’t have very long to take in new energy from the thin midwinter sun. Will their blooms suffer in the spring? [...]

That Cold, Cold Winter Was Actually Warmer Than Average

Boy, that last winter was cold. Cold, cold, cold, huh? I mean, it was so cold it just blasted a hole in that whole global warming theory, didn’t it?

Never mind that one year does not make a trend. This past winter, like all winters for nearly two decades, was warmer than average.

Look [...]

Cold January Was Actually Warm

January was warmer than average – not colder than average. So much for all nonsensical protests of the industrial opponents of action against global warming. [...]
