Perhaps more than the number 82 is the winter solstice - or just plain ole winter.

Hi All ~

msolga, welcome! Kudos! Very Happy http://www.able2know.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51564&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

sue, did ya know - The word solstice derives from Latin sol (Sun) and sistere (stand still), Winter Solstice meaning Sun stand still in winter.

The American Hopi Inuit Solstice tradition

Soyal (Zuni and Hopi of North America)

Soyalangwul is the winter solstice ceremony of the Zuni and the Hopitu Shinumu, "The Peaceful Ones", also known as the Hopi Indians. It is held on December 21, the shortest day of the year. The main purpose of the ritual is to ceremonially bring the sun back from its long winter slumber. It also marks the beginning of another cycle of the Wheel of the Year, and is a time for purification. Pahos (prayer sticks) are made prior to the Soyal ceremony, to bless all the community, including their homes, animals, and plants. The kivas (sacred underground ritual chambers) are ritually opened to mark the beginning of the Kachina season.

I find its widespread celebration, in most cultures, of great interest.

Thank you for the new thread, Stradee!

Just got back a while ago from picking the dogs up from the grooomers - they've got to look good for mrs. hamburger - and Bailey needed some tidying up from this summer. He got into some burrs - and I'm not as patient as Setanta. Where he spends hours (sometimes literally) teasing the burrs out from Bailey's undercoat, I pull out the pinking shears Embarrassed

I'm going to try and get some photos before the dogs manage to get themselves unfluffed again Very Happy

Our temps are at, or just above, freezing right now. It's supposed to get a bit warmer and then zoom back down again - with snow for Christmas Eve.

Works for me

Nice, ehBeth. Mine aren't crazy about the outside either. Overcast and barely over 50.

Hi ehBeth! Very nice artwork - very funny four seasonings. LOL

Thanks for the stats. Smile

sue, just got home from town and even with the freezing cold, all the parking lots are filled and stores packed with shoppers. Took an hour just to buy food for the cats.

Warm fleece, hot cappuccino, and finally me feets are beginning to thaw.

Today the mini-vacation postponed - new work schedule. I'll be home for Christmas too. Hopefully there'll be snow.

msolga - it's been a heck of a long time since we talked - How are you doing???? And, I expect after talking with you earlier that we should continue to save at least a tree a day - somewhere around the world.

What do you say???

I say - WELCOME BACK..!!

Yes, danon, ages & ages & ages ago!

I'm not too bad at all. And you?

Save a tree a day, somewhere around the world?
What a fine idea!

(psst ... say I wanted to save a tree (lots of them, actually!) in Indonesia.
How would I go about doing that? Sorry to be remedial! Embarrassed )

Her work is marvelous, isn't it? Smile

msolga, the resident wildcliker expert is our own ehBeth. Believe me, if you have questions about how to join the team, or register at the site, she's the lady with the answers.

Our team members, and those who haven't joined the Aktibirds but still click at the Care2 site are also welcome to begin a Rainforest thread. We are equal opportunity clickers. Very Happy You'll see the reminder from either dannon or ehBeth at a posting when a new thread is suggested.

We are an enviornmental group, with emphasis on saving the rainforests of the world, and welcome articles and comments pertaining to issues of importance. If you've read prior threads, you'll see we also comment on just about everything from the enviornment, to politics, or just stopping by to say 'hi' after we've clicked for the day.

Read the intro to the thread, and you'll see a link to the Care2 site. If you haven't registered at the site yet, i'd begin there. Once you've entered you own distinctive log-in name and password, you'll be able to begin clicking. With the rainforest, there are also other good causes you can click for each day.

ehBeth can give you more information about the team. Very Happy

I must go click now! Dang - so busy today almost forgot!
