November is a ages abounding with changes, memories, and giving thanks.
One change is in those states who participate in aurora extenuative time. Utah does, so I achievement you angry your clocks aback one hour. Sunrise and dusk are now one hour beforehand than before, so we accept added ablaze in the morning. My own affection would be to aloof leave it alone. We accept endless clocks and watches in our abode and car. (I accept no abstraction how abounding “umpteen” are, but there are a lot). Kept me alive alteration them all, and as I blazon these words, I bethink that I didn’t change the ones downstairs. We don’t go bottomward there often, but we do accept clocks in all three of the bedrooms there and two in the ancestors room!
A big change in Utah is that the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret Account will stop publishing circadian newspapers. Already a anniversary for anniversary is the new format. I admiration if the Abbey Account area will still be allotment of the Deseret News. As I’ve said before, there is annihilation abiding except change.
Nov. 3 was Election Day, about best association account this bi-weekly acceptable voted beforehand by mail-in ballots. Jane and I beatific in our ballots weeks ago. Are you admiring with the outcomes? For me, “yes” in best cases and “no” in a couple. But I will abutment those who were elected.
November is additionally the ages we account veterans on Veterans Day. Be abiding to fly your banderole tomorrow. I was never in any of the armed casework except the Air Force ROTC aback I aboriginal came to academy at Utah State. As a land-grant university, it was a appropriate advance aback then. We marched about the Quad on Armed Casework Day. I played a boom in the band. However, I was never in alive battle overseas. Due to accepting arthritic agitation as a adolescent and a babble in my heart, I didn’t authorize for alive duty.

What is your assumption as to aback the COVID crisis will end? Abundant doctors and pathologists in accomplished years put an end to polio or baby paralysis, measles, and abundant added pandemics. Penicillin was a phenomenon drug, and now there are alike added medications to advice cure added ailments. The cardinal of new cases fills the account letters in all the media, TV, newspapers, and radio news. (I accept I rarely accept to a radio these days, but conceivably others do.) I am beholden for methotrexate, an bang I accord myself already a anniversary for rheumatoid arthritis. It’s actual able and has absolutely helped my joints and bones. A account of circadian contest accustomed to me by Logan Physical Therapy are morning regulars. I do three altered bedding of contest that are apparent with drawings. I “work out” admiral in our ample bold allowance on one end and Jane’s appointment on the other. After accomplishing the assigned attic exercises, I airing a bisected mile on a treadmill we purchased several years ago and watch the morning account while accomplishing so. In acceptable weather, I booty our dog JJ for a airing alfresco in the afternoon. He and Jane go for a best airing anniversary morning. And we both booty him out briefly aback he rings a alarm blind on a band abreast our aback door. Aback the snow and ice appear with the access of winter, we acclimate with central assignment outs and abrupt alfresco trips for the dog and some beginning air for us.
In November’s Reader’s Digest there is a abundant area entitled, The Genius Area (nine pages to acuminate your mind). One commodity is called, “Your Academician Was Made for Walking — Artistic afflatus is alone a abbreviate airing away.” The commodity is abounding of belief and quotes Thomas Jefferson who said, “Walking is the best accessible exercise. Habituate yourself to airing actual far.” It additionally shares this adduce by Charles Dickens, “If I could not airing far and fast, I anticipate I should aloof backfire and perish!” The commodity added states, “A Stanford University abstraction begin that participants were 81% added artistic aback walking as against to sitting.” One key aspect of walking is acutely movement. The phrase, “Exercise your creativity,” refers to the academician as a muscle. The commodity ends by advising that you “Turn off your buzz and accord yourself the adventitious to be present in the world, to apprehend conversations and accustomed sounds, to apprehension the way bodies move, the way the sun reflects in a puddle. Airing not aloof for exercise. Airing for wonder.”
Whenever I anticipate of November, I consistently anticipate of Thanksgiving. I will address about that in my abutting column. One affair I apperceive is how beholden I am for a ancestors who keeps in blow with us and with anniversary other. Aback there is a need, they come. Aback there is article special, they accompany in adulatory by phone, texting, or postal means. Caring and administration matters. I don’t apperceive who said this first, but I accept it, “A ancestors who prays together, stays together.” I couldn’t acquisition out who aboriginal said this, but a Google chase said it was Father Patrick Payton. I apperceive leaders in the abbey I appear accept generally said this. I am a praying man. Families all over the apple pray. It may be in an absolutely altered way than we pray, but assertive in a absolute actuality is worldwide. Leaders of all religions and abounding faiths accept in a ability stronger than what we see, feel, or experience.
Let us accompany calm in giving acknowledgment and adjure for those who are in need. Donate some aliment for others. The Cache Aliment Bank is a admirable endeavor, as is the Deseret Industries for clothing, books, furniture, and abounding added items. Look for means to accurate acknowledgment and acquisition opportunities to accord all ages long.
