09:17 – It was 55.5F (13C) when I took Colin out at 0700, mostly clear. Lows this week are to be in the 30’s, so our first frost and perhaps a hard freeze isn’t far off.

Barbara is getting ready for a vacation trip. She and a girl friend are driving up to the Finger Lakes region of New York, leaving this Friday and returning on Sunday the 29th. I’m happy that she’ll return well before the antifa Days of Rage, which is scheduled for November 4th and the days following. Not that I seriously expect any major problems, but when a terrorist group announces that they’ve scheduled large-scale, widespread protests (i.e., riots), it’s a good idea to at least keep it in mind.

I’ve watched a lot of the videos that Jaime and Jeremy post on their Guildbrook Farms YouTube channel. Yesterday, Barbara watched several of them with me, and said she enjoyed watching them.

Their “farm” is actually a ranch house sitting on one acre in what used to be an exurban development, but because of urban sprawl has now become suburban. It’s in Davidson, NC, which is the Charlotte metro area. They’re homesteaders and preppers, and they post a lot of videos. I just checked, and they have 157 videos posted in just over one year. Roughly one every other day. There are a few short ones, but most are 12 to 20 minutes long.
