Brown's Beat

Rinard Mills 11/05/2015 edition

Friday the 13th appeared three times in this 2015 year: Nov., March, Feb. This will not happen again until 2026. Whenever the first of any month is on a Sunday, there will be a Friday the 13th that month.

“November” from Betty McDonald’s The Egg and I the poem titled “November” by Wood.

Brown's Beacon Beat 10/22/15

In a whirlwind day, I was able to attend both the Hannibal Locks and Dam Festival and the re-dedication of the Monroe Park and Marina on Saturday. It was certainly a cold, windy day, and I left feeling glad I live in a hollow instead of on the river. Of course, I’m sure that river breeze on a summer day is pretty nice.
