Nothing to do with today's blog..just a cool photo!
Our friends up north celebrated their longest day of sunlight today while we here in the southern hemisphere endured our shortest day. Here in Cuenca, we were cut back to a brief 11 hours, 57 minutes and 22 seconds between our local sunrise and local sunset. Back in December when you guys were whining about your shortest day, we had our longest...on that day the time between sunrise and sunset mushroomed into a startling 12 hours, 10 minutes and 55 seconds. Needless to say we don't mess around with that nonsense called "daylight savings time". The only time we reset clocks down here is when have a power outage or power surge.
As my friend and fellow blogger Clarke Greene would say: "Life is sweet"
(This is true even though Jif Peanut Butter has become more expensive down here...SuperMaxi figured out we really like the stuff better than the other U.S. brands so they priced it $1.58 higher than the others...it's volume really slowed down but it still outsells that stinky old Peter Pan!)
Anyway, we are are still alive and kicking and still glad to be "juntos en el camino de la vida!"
