Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

The first frost after the full moon
I know that our chilly weather might strike some of you further North as more of a nuisance than anything else, but this morning we had our first temperatures below freezing. Big deal? Well, for those of us whose families were raised in the country, the first frost after the full moon is Hog Killing Time.
Here is a link to a story about hog killing first published back in 1995, and another more recent.
Funny, but in all the rush to take down Halloween decorations and put up the ones for Thanksgivmas, the stores never do seem to remember to put up the decorations for hog killing time.
