Day trip to Mount Solon
Jacqueline and I took advantage of yesterday's balmy temperatures (what a contrast to last week!) by driving through the northern reaches of Augusta County. We traversed miles of rolling pastures and then stopped for a while in the town of Mount Solon, where we relaxed and watched the ducks and geese on the picturesque pond. I walked around and was particularly impressed by the old architecture such as the old brick building that may have been a school or a courthouse. Mt. Solon must have been a thriving community in the 19th Century, but today it is regarded as a sleepy, bygone village. If you ask me, it is truly an idyllic locale. Then we went to Natural Chimneys Regional Park, less than a mile north of town, but were dissuaded from entering by the $6 per car entry fee. For an afternoon picnic, sure. For a brief photo op? No. See y'all next time. On the way back home, we stopped so I could get a picture of the old steel girder bridge in Stokesville . Now that's a classic image of yesteryear rural America.

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.
Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.
The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
