Daily Stuff 3-10-21 Tibetan Uprising Day

Hi, folks!

Minus Tide at 5:04 PM of -0.3 feet. The shop is closed today. Winter hours are Thurs-Mon. 1-6pm. Featured photo by Ken Gagne.

It’s only partly cloudy after the afternoon’s rain, so it’s getting very chilly. 38F, wind at 2-4 mph and gusting, AQI 1-38, UV3. Chance of rain 12% today and 9% tonight. We should have a dry and sunny stretch though Saturday. On Sunday there’s a pretty good chance of rain and then showers out through the end of the forecast. I could get kinda breezy this afternoon, too.

Yesterday was frustrating. I tried to work in the morning, but could *not* wrap my head around what I was doing. The brain-fog was thick. I went back to bed for awhile, but it was no better the 2nd time I got up, so I went back to bed again. Tempus and I finally got up around 2, and once we were at the shop with coffee, things went a bit better. I still didn’t get the House Capuchin newsletter done until nearly 5pm. Tempus finally had to help me with the pictures.

…and no laundry happened, still. We just ran out of time. We did open the utopenci and try some. That’s the Czech pickled sausage. It needs more horseradish. I didn’t harvest last fall and I don’t know why. It’s the wrong time of year to dig the roots, now, but I might, anyway, and replant after.

Keep your fingers crossed for us. It looks like we do finally have a space at a tiny home park. Hoping to set things up pretty soon! …and the horseradish will have to wait until we’re set up and have space for more plants again. …and I’m looking for bids again on the steps/deck combo that we need to have. Oh, wow! Maybe I can have an artichoke plant again!

Today Tempus needs to do laundry and I need to get my class into final form for Sunday. I’m glad I cried off on the blackwork. After this I need to get the marzipan class ready for 4/2 and then Blackwork will be in late April and May (two-part class).

I’m kinda hoping I can get myself together better today and do some more on stock, although we’re still going to have to figure out what to do about headers again. Tempus is hoping that cleaning the printer will be enough. I’m not so sure. I’m going to order some lighter cardstock on the off chance….

plant herb sage blossom bud

SageSalvia Officinalis, sometimes called true sage, or culinary sage, is a plant that has been used in cookery, magick and medicine for many thousands of years. It is one of the ingredients in Four Thieves Vinegar. The blossoms make a delicious tea. – Masculine, Jupiter, Air– In purple cloth, brings wisdom. Worn in an amulet sewn into a horn shape protects against the evil eye. Used as a wash, or sniffed, enhances youthful mindset and appearance. Eat sage in May for long life. Carry to promote wisdom. Write a wish on a sage leaf and sleep on it. If you dream of it, it will happen, else bury the leaf in the ground. More here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvia_officinalis

feast 0310 Dalai_Lama

Tibetan Uprising Day – This is the anniversary of the uprising of Tibet against China in 1959. The uprising failed and the Dalai Lama had to flee and has lived in exile since. Tibet is not free, and China has been pretty cruel.  More here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibetan_Uprising_Day  and on the Dalai Lama here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalai_Lama

The middle star of the Big Dipper’s bent handle is Mizar, with tiny little Alcor right next to it. On which side of Mizar should you look for Alcor? As always, on the side toward Vega! Which is now the brightest star in the east. If your eyes aren’t quite sharp enough, binoculars show Alcor easily.

By nightfall, the Big Dipper is high in the northeast and beginning to tip left. Look left of its center, by about three fists at arm’s length, for Polaris in the dim Little Dipper. Other than Polaris, all you may see of the Little Dipper through light pollution are the two stars forming the outer edge of its bowl: Kochab (similar to Polaris in brightness) and below it, fainter Pherkad. Find these two “Guardians of the Pole” to Polaris’s lower right by about a fist and a half at arm’s length. Now is the time of year when the Guardians line up exactly vertically around the end of twilight.

Jupiter and Mercury are coming off their March 5th conjunction, while Saturn looks on. The two widen from 1° apart on the morning of Saturday the 6th to 6½° apart on Friday the 12th.

Having passed by Saturn yesterday evening, the Moon passes 4° south of Jupiter at 11 A.M. EST this morning. It then skims 4° south of Mercury at 8 P.M. EST. Again, the trio of planets lines up nicely in the early morning sky; look in the same direction at roughly the same time as yesterday morning — can you notice how Mercury has moved just a little? The line they create is straighter this morning as well.

Neptune at its best – The subtle blue-gray color of Neptune shows up through amateur telescopes, though the cloud features Voyager 2 captured in 1989 are out of reach. – NASA/JPL

Neptune is in conjunction with the Sun at 7 P.M. EST; due to its location, the gas giant is not visible at all this month but will reappear early next month in the morning sky.

Tonight marks the start of Unistellar’s Messier Marathon 2021 activities. When you “run” a Messier marathon, you attempt to view the entire catalog of Messier objects (109 or 110, depending on how you count them) in a single night, starting at dusk and ending at dawn. You can use binoculars or a telescope, but you will need optical aid to see all but the brightest objects in Messier’s catalog. If tonight isn’t ideal for your marathon, don’t worry — this weekend (March 13/14) is actually 2021’s best Messier marathon viewing, thanks to the date of the New Moon. And Unistellar’s observing event runs tonight through March 16, offering plenty of time to get your marathon (or half marathon) on. Stay tuned for more information from Astronomy’s editors and contributors on how best to run your Messier marathon for the highest chances of sighting your favorite deep-sky objects.

Venus is out of sight in conjunction with the Sun.

Runic half-month of Teiwaz/Tyr, 2/27-3/13 This is a time of positive regulation, sacrifice and hard work in order to progress.

Celtic Tree Month of Nuin/Nion/Ash, Feb 18 – Mar 17, Nion (NEE-uhn), ash – the common ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) is a major tree of lowland forests in much of Europe, along with oaks and beeches. It grows to 40 m (130 feet) in open sites, with a broad crown reminiscent of American elm trees. Ash was and still is an important timber tree, and is a traditional material for the handle of a besom. The common ash is occasionally cultivated in North America, and similar native ash species are widely grown as street trees. Ashes are members of the Olive family (Oleaceae).

SONJA’S RECIPEShttp://www.sonjasrecipes.com/make-amazing-easter-eggs-beautiful-ever/  – HOW TO MAKE AMAZING EASTER EGGS, BEAUTIFUL THEN EVER. – Sonja | April 3, 2017 – Easter is coming and that way here is an idea how to make beautiful Easter eggs with napkins, onion peels and electrical insulating tape. Here is my way around it.

1.EASTER EGGS  WITH NAPKINS.

All you need is napkins with details of flower or butterfly and egg white which will use like a glue to stick  the napkins flower or butterfly for the egg.

-Boil the egg , place in a food color in which you have previously added a little vinegar, leave it for 2-3 minutes and remove aside to cool down.Then with a brush soaked in a egg white get through the flower and let it dry.

2.EASTER EGGS  WITH  ONION PEELS.

You need onion peels, women’s socks .The egg wallow it with onion peels and strengthen with women’s socks. like these we boil the egg in a water. After boiling it  place in a green  food color in which you have previously added a little vinegar, leave it for 2-3 minutes and take  aside to remove the peels from the egg.

3.EASTER EGGS  WITH ELECTRICAL INSULATING TAPE.

All you need is baking paper and electrical insulating tape.

First  stick the tape on the baking paper, cut on the middle lengthwise and then in half  of width.

То the already boiled egg put first two strips lengthwise, and place in a  food color whatever you prefere leave it for 2-3 minutes  take  aside to remove the strips, then again stick the strips on the width leave 2-3 minutes in other food color and take aside to remove the strips. The eggs are incredibly beautiful, At the end  all eggs cover with oil in order to obtain shine effect. Good luck!
