Greetings from St. Paul on day 220 of 2020 or to put in a percent, 60.11% of the years has passed. Today  there will be 12h 24m 39 s of daylight with sunrise t 6:05 am and sunset at 8:30 pm.

In 1990, Braham was named the "Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota" by Governor Rudy Perpich.It gained fame for pie in the 1930s and 40s when folks would drive to their lake homes using the "shortcut to Duluth through Braham."  Today is Braham Pie Day. Because of the coronavirus pandemic it has been canceled for 2020.  The menu usually includes more than 1100 pies and artisan pies. A feast!

Today's quote is by General Todd Semonite, Director of the U. S. Corps of Engineers: America needs a capability to step up when something gets really, really bad. (The New Yorker, August 3 & 10, 2020)

Today's poem  is by Gerald Manley Hopkins.
