November 29: Apple Hill
Hush that anguished hymn you're humming: / "Come, O Come, Emmanuel." / Trumpet Christmas! Fix his coming / firmly at "The First Nowell."
He's already come in glory! / Why plead, "Savior, come at last"? / Let's talk Christmas! Tell a story / safely in the distant past.
Drown out John the Baptist. Edit / out "Prepare! Make straight the way!" / Cut to Christmas! Buy on credit. / Square things up another day.
Advent's dreary. Let's start living / Christmas now! Wear red and green! / While we're at it, skip Thanksgiving! / Deck the halls at Halloween!
Then, when the Incarnate Verb / overnight becomes passé, / carry Christmas to the curb. / Pack the Prince of Peace away. -Julie Stoner

"Climaquiddick" I like that.
I'd seen some of my Facebook friends going to Apple Hill and so realized it was still open. We haven't been for years and years and that time most of the farms were closed. It sounded like a good idea, so I ran a geocaching pocket query, Rich printed maps, and off we went after church.
Our first stop was Abel Acres. We've been there before, probably when the kids were little. We had lunch there, then went caching and shopping all around Apple Hill. We found 9 caches and had only one no-find, and we visited a lot of farms. We made sure to go to the place that sold dolls (nothing special.) We visited one place that had "crying tongue" olives (stuffed with jalapenos and marinated with habaneros. Gee, I wonder why they named it that.) We saw the Larkin family museum. We went to the brewery and had a nice talk with a vendor selling safari stuff. She is the supplier to Safari West. I tried some types of apples I've never heard of, and I like Arkansas Black and Mutso, and Lady Pink. It was a beautiful day and a lot of fun. We need to go back more frequently.
Oddly, data is missing.

0bama's own words demonstrate his real character.
Donna Marie Ruby: I like the article not the six trillion. The man is insane and anyone who follows this man is destroying America. He is tying the hands of our military, spending cash like shat through a tin horn and spreading the dread. People are ticked off. PC is out the window.
If we're in it, let's win it. (Sarah Palin): "We head into the Christmas season wishing for leadership in Washington that reflects our commitment to the values and ideals that have built the freest and most prosperous and generous nation on earth."

'He talks too much," a Saudi academic in Jeddah, who had once been smitten with Barack Obama, recently observed to me of America's 44th president. He has wearied of Mr. Obama and now does not bother with the Obama oratory.
