Highland County Maple Festival

If it's March, it must be time for the annual Highland County Maple Festival, and once again Jacqueline and I made the trip out there, buying maple donuts, maple syrup, maple candy, etc. Most of the time we spent in Monterrey, the county seat, but we also stopped in McDowell on the way back. Unlike 2007 and 2008 (coinciding with Palm Sunday, this time the weather was mild, with no snow.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
