It was lovely to see everyone outside the library on Monday morning looking a bit silly with cardboard glasses and helmets to watch the eclipse. It turned into a wonderful community event that did not require either alcohol or politics.
To the Highlands resident asking why progressives are so afraid of the current president: Let me try to clear that up for you. We are not afraid, we are angry. He has made a laughing stock of this great nation on the world stage. He has pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord because he wants to please special interest groups who support big oil: his donors.

And, Finally …
I am fit but I nearly pass out chasing ice cream vans about. Are they driving away faster than they used to do, having to make more stops like FedEx vans? Oh dear, I need an ice cream …
