In case you missed it, here is the 2017 Eclipse…
Its aura was a beautiful orange color.
On the serious side…
The 2017 Eclipse was like the other partial eclipses I’ve seen. This time, I used my pinhole lens to take a picture…
After spending time looking at the eclipse through my special sunglasses (made especially for viewing eclipses), I made a decision. The next time, I don’t bother unless it is totality.
The next full eclipse is in 2024. Totality will pass over Palmyra, New York.
Rooms at the Beckwith Mansion the night before and after are $50,000 each. (Okay… they probably won’t be that much, but there is this thing called supply and demand.)
I picked a good peck of tomatoes today. The last 2 days many ripened. Elizabethe is turning them in to tomato sauce with herbs for pizza and stuff like that. (She cooks it down so it is nice and thick.)
Our home teacher (John Harmer) told us about cucumber spiced apple slices. Elizabeth researched and found a recipe and is making a batch. She’s doing this to the huge cucumbers that went hidden until they got too big for much of anything else.
