I wrote to Canada's PM to express that imo the Minister of Defence should resign.

This is both why the egg won't stand on its end and why I will never vote for this f####ng government.


Please know that your e-mail message has been received in the Prime Minister's Office and that your comments have been noted. Our office always welcomes hearing from correspondents and being made aware of their views.

Thank you for writing.

Sachez que le Cabinet du Premier ministre a bien reçu votre courriel et que nous avons pris bonne note de vos commentaires. Nous aimons être bien informés de l'opinion des correspondants.

Je vous remercie d'avoir écrit au Premier ministre.


I will likely become a Wiccan. I figure if everyone's gonna lose a tenuous grasp on reality, I'd be crazy not to join them.

Equinox, just happens, night as long as day just once, you can't help it, any more than being born or dying.

Happy everything!

My sunflowers are bent over like ancient crones, heavy with seeds which have not quite dropped. Last year's brought a whole bed full of babies last spring; so many, I had to thin them out. This year's I think I will broadcast elsewhere as I don't want them taking over the perennial bed, though they have been very companionable.

I liked autumn better when I was still in Virginia. The colours were richer and more varied than in Essex UK.

Some warm bread with that soup?

slice soft baps or crusty rolls
place on baking sheet
spread with chunky apple sauce or thinly sliced apples
sprinkle with shredded mature cheddar or cinnamon
toast under grill until bubbly on top


Who's next?

John McCutcheon has a song "Smells Like Soup at Our House" a good one for these days where (in the northern hemisphere) it is beginning to cool down at night.

Any more songs or poems or even photos for the season?

This is a bit off beam I know, but what the hay. I made this really tasty Autumnal stew thing that feels really seasonal & would look right proper in one of those cast iron witchy cauldron thingys some of you Wiccans use - maybe even better suited to bonfires around Samhain actually, but here goes:

Harvest Stew

* In a large pan: heat a glug of Oil, & saute a chopped Onion and some crushed Garlic.
* Add a teaspoon of Cumin seeds & a tablespoon of Paprika.
* Add to pan: one peeled and chopped Red Pepper, one peeled and chopped Butternut Squash, & one peeled and chopped Sweet Potato.
* Add a glass (1/3 pint) of Red Wine, & a couple of glasses (2/3 pint) of water, plus a Veggie Stock Cube. Add a can of Chopped Tomatoes.
* Place lid on pan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat & simmer for 15 minutes.
* Add a handful (3 oz) of Bulgar Wheat. Simmer with lid off, for a further 15 minutes.
* Season & Serve.

Topper!

over here, it's suddenly spring - trees almost completely covered with leaves when a few days ago they were bare, flowers all over the place, including displays set up by the Council in planters on many city streets.

Yeah, the same from me to all CS I think it is definately Autumn, chilly in the morning and as I left work for the day(about 1 hour ago) there was that classic smell of autumn, Burning Leaves, on the nose"
The Burning of the Leaves   

Now is the time for the burning of the leaves,
They go to the fire; the nostrils prick with smoke
Wandering slowly into the weeping mist.
Brittle and blotched, ragged and rotten sheaves!
A flame seizes the smouldering ruin, and bites
On stubborn stalks that crackle as they resist.
The last hollyhock's fallen tower is dust:
All the spices of June are a bitter reek,
All the extravagant riches spent and mean.
All burns! the reddest rose is a ghost.
Spark whirl up, to expire in the mist: the wild
Fingers of fire are making corruption clean.
Now is the time for stripping the spirit bare,
Time for the burning of days ended and done,
Idle solace of things that have gone before,
Rootless hope and fruitless desire are there:
Let them go to the fire with never a look behind.
That world that was ours is a world that is ours no more.
They will come again, the leaf and the flower, to arise
From squalor of rottenness into the old splendour,
And magical scents to a wondering memory bring;
The same glory, to shine upon different eyes.
Earth cares for her own ruins, naught for ours.
Nothing is certain, only the certain spring.
