    I didn't know you guys lived near me! Or maybe you're just stalking...

    At our co-op they just recently brought out the hot-cross-buns. Either they're insanely early getting them out, or these are left over from March... I love hot-cross-buns but I don't fancy taking the risk.

    That's happened once or twice locally. Some of those railway bridges are low.

    I try to put up my outdoor xmas lights right before Thanksgiving but I dont turn them on until Thanksgiving night.
    The way our weather is going so far this month, I might not be putting out any lights this year.
    I'm a retro nerd, so I like to use the old style c9 bulbs. C7's on the tree. Who else goes retro with their lights?

    One of our local shops had removed the Halloween stock from display by October 3rd and replaced it with Christmas stuff. Drives me mad, been listening to piped Christmas songs for a fortnight. I see no benefit to beginning Christmas seemingly earlier and earlier every year. I’m not a ‘bah, humbug’ guy, but I’ll be fed up with the whole darn thing by the time it actually arrives.
