    If ant hills are high in July,
    Winter will be snowy.
    If the first week in August is unusually warm,
    the coming Winter will be snowy and long.

    For every fog in August, (we had 5 foggy days in AUG. I'm gonna see if this holds true
    There will be a snowfall in Winter.

    If a cold August follows a hot July,
    It foretells a Winter hard and dry.

    When leaves fall early,
    Fall and Winter will be mild;
    When leaves fall late,
    Winter will be severe.
    Squirrels gathering nuts in a flurry,
    Will cause snow to gather in a hurry.

    Much rain in October,
    Much wind in December.

    A warm October,
    A cold February.

    Full Moon in October without frost,
    No frost 'till November's Full Moon.

    Flowers bloomin' in late Autumn,
    A sure sign of a bad Winter comin'.

    A warm November is the sign of a bad Winter.

    As high as the weeds grow,
    So will the bank of snow.

    Thunder in the Fall foretells a cold Winter.

    Onion skins very thin,
    Mild Winter coming in;
    Onion skins thick and tough,
    Coming Winter cold and rough.
    A green Christmas; a white Easter.

    If there's thunder during Christmas week,
    The Winter will be anything but meek.

    A tough Winter is ahead if:

    corn husks are thick and tight...
    apple skins are tough...
    birds migrate early...
    squirrels tails are very bushy...
    berries and nuts are plentiful...
    bees build their nests high in the trees.

    If the breast bone of the Thanksgiving goose is red or has many spots, expect a cold and stormy Winter;
    but if only a few spots are visible, expect a mild Winter.

    The severity of Winter is determined by how far down the feathers have grown on a partridge's leg.

    The wider the brown (middle) band on a woolly bear caterpillar, the milder the Winter.

    The nearer the New Moon to Christmas Day, the harder the Winter.

    If the first snowfall lands on unfrozen ground, the Winter will be mild.

    If there is thunder in Winter, it will snow 7 days later.

There was an outdoor well that a pump was used to fill a pail of water. There was an out house. And we took baths in a # 10 washtub. Well, that was us little ones. I have no idea what the grownups did. Sponge baths? I loved the bed, it was a very soft feather mattress that sunk way down in the middle, like being in a cocoon.
    Thanks I love finding 'gems' like this and I have always been interested in the old days. Glad you enjoyed it!

    I haven't seen on of those since 1980. We had one that made a web over across front room window. I read somewhere yesterday that there are large numbers of them cropping up.

    One of our neighbor's told Anna yesterday that they are noticing a whole lot of rats moving in in the last few weeks. Every night when I water baby grasshoppers are everywhere.

    Wow! Glad that's all it was. That can be cured by taking vitamins with Iron in them. DD got diagnosed with that too when she got heat exhaustion this summer. She's always pale, but her color was abnormally pale.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Oh my goodness! reading about your husband gave me a flashback to an article I read in The New York Times Magazine a year ago.

    Here is the first part (you can click on a link at the bottom for the second part):

    http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/0...tor-losing-it/

    This guy's symptoms were very perplexing to medical professionals. A partial list of their guesses regarding possible causes were: environmental poisoning, renal cancer, Lyme disease, Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, and Pernicious anemia.

    In the end, it wasn't just a B-12 deficiency, but an underlying copper deficiency as well. He also had celiac disease, which damaged his ability to absorb nutrients.

    Don't know if any of this applies to your husband, but it does give some insight into why it took so long to get a proper diagnosis.

    Wishing him a speedy recovery now that the problem has been identified!

    MY dh husband donated double red cells and after a few times he starting feeling tired all the time, and when he went to Carter the next month and they did the finger stick and said his hemoglobin was low, and he couldn't give, so he saw his dr. and that was his diagnosis was anemia. They started him on iron, and told him to eat veggies with iron. Green leafy veggies, mushrooms, red meat and fruits, Basically a healthy diet. His levels came up, but he hasn't gone back to giving blood. We started donating when Q102 had their blood drive each year. They'd give out t shirts and concert tickets. We saw the Moody Blues, ZZ Top, Tom Petty there. Dh has thirty his once a year t shirts still. His favorite was Tom Petty's Great Wide Open.

    I hope all those things that predict a cold and snowy winter are wrong. Really need a break from harsh winters! Never used to be that way here. Might have to become a FL or AZ snowbird if the current trends continue!
