The day before yesterday was Blue Monday, or at least that is what I heard on the radio. What is blue Monday? Why is it different than any other Monday of the year? Is there a green Monday, a purple Monday? I know there is a black Friday, before Christmas, but blue Monday? So I did what most people do in this day and age, and I asked Google. Here’s what I found.
Blue Monday is a name given to a date in mid-to-late January stated, as part of a publicity campaign by Sky Travel, to be the most depressing day of the year. However, the whole concept is considered pseudoscience, with its formula derided by scientists as nonsense.
I figured as much. If this was the case, then I should also celebrate (and I use the term lightly) Blue Tuesday, Blue Wednesday, Blue Thur………well, you get the idea.
Let’s see now…we’ve got Blue Moon, Blue Christmas, Blueberry Hill, and Blue Monday.
I must say, I’m feeling the blues……..
Our weather would make anyone blue, even the people who like snow. Last Saturday looked like this,
and then Sunday, it warmed, and the wind blew and it looked like this.
When thinking about blog ideas, I thought perhaps I could come up with something a bit more interesting than this weather, but the only other thing I could think of was the ‘Windsor Hum’.
citizens are hearing a strange hum, and there have been about 400 complaints
about this noise, and the government has given some funds to help discover what
is causing it. Some think it is coming from Windsor, Ontario , which is right across the river.
Well, I wish them, whoever is doing the investigating, luck. Someone suggested
use the noise as a tourist attraction. Come to Windsor , the home of the hum. Windsor
The reason this news event caught my attention is because
is where I grew up. It has changed a lot since then, since I left when I was
23, and moved to Windsor .
I do not miss it, the grit and grime in the air, the traffic which is a lot
worse now, and the noise (not hum). Nova Scotia is definitely my favorite place now. Nova
It is bitterly cold out today, -15 with wind and snow falling, and the ground is covered once again with its white blanket. I have to get up enough courage to go to the drugstore to get my prescriptions. Brrrrrrrr.

I hope wherever you are, you are enjoying your day. Stay warm.
