    KENTUCKY WEATHER.Wow, what about our Kentucky weather? March 15 was a beautiful day to enjoy being outside and the next day we has rain, sleet and snow. It made for very dangerous driving and many wrecks accured. The snow was pretty coming down and really fast but the next day it melted away very quickly. Will spring weather ever get here? Maybe not by the actual date but it will come.

    Then again “they” say a lot of things and we still don’t know who “they” are.

    Why don’t “they” change that?

    At any rate, I won’t argue with the aforementioned statement. It’s true enough, many times.

    Change can keep things from getting stale and can spark inspiration. In fact, I purposely break routine when I realize it has become just that: routine.
