Friday Poem

From the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) at Hamline University, Saint Paul, MN, good morning. It is the 323rd day of the year (88.49%) or 46 weeks and 1 day after the start of 2021.

Today there will be 9h 23m 36s of sunlight and the sunrises at 7:16 am and sets at 4:39 pm. The dark hours are enclosing our lives.

It is National Macchiato Day and Foodimentary shows us the art of a caffe latte, has five facts about them and some food history.  One is quite grisly! On the other hand, National Today informs us that November 19 is National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day

Aliyah Armstrong, reporter for the San Antonio Current, tells us why we have so many national food holidays. Foodimentary "lists approximately 500 food days" while National Today includes "314 food celebrations." Aha, some clarity. Foodimentary listed 19 November as National Peanut Butter Day in 2012 and 2019. So P&J to go with the latte to go, please.

Quote: Saving the planet isn't a partisan issue.--Barack Obama, COP 26.

Today's poem is by Lisel Mueller.
