Today’s output from Blogistan Polytechnic Institute’s state-of-the-art HEMMED (High-Energy Meta Mojo Elucidation Detector) machine is more of the same or as we say in French: plus de la même.

As long as you are here, I will share a little history. You may notice that the Parts (or “counts”) of this series are in French. That is because JanF is of French descent…French Canadian descent to be more precise. Channelling my blogging ancestor YvetteF, the orginal HEMMED operator from Trois-Rivières, QC, Canada, I occasionally feel a strong urge to using French words. It is part of my (very real) joie de vivre.

Let’s review where we are:
– Last week: Go Outside and enjoy being Offline
– July 17th: Go Outside and enjoy being Offline
– July 10th: Go Outside and enjoy being Offline

To repeat, you may decide you want to be inside reading this but I am not only Scheduling this to post days in advance but I am Recycling the First Post until the summer is over on September 4th. So here is your minutes-lost update:

The Summer Solstice was on June 21. Since then we have lost 10 19 31 45 minutes of daylight. By the end of August we will have lost nearly 2 hours of daylight…one in the morning and one in the evening.

Depressed yet? Don’t be!!! The ebb and flow of daylight is a cycle and on December 21st the light will start coming back again. Sorry. That probably didn’t help.

It is not too late to enjoy the summer and the daylight.

Here is the “order”. I am going to make it a standing order for the rest of the summer.

Set your keyboard aside and get outside and do some things:

1. Take a walk with your family
2. Ride your bike
3. Kick a soccer ball around in the park
4. Play catch with your kids

One more thing I forgot to mention…these guys will try to make it hard to enjoy the outside. Just ignore them:

Happy Saturday to everyone! And fist bumps.
