Christmas Cranes

December is a great time to watch migrating cranes. The cranes stop to rest at Hiwassee Refuge in Birchwood Tennessee near Cleveland.
On a recent visit I observed thousands of Sandhill Cranes, and four white Whooping Cranes. An added bonus was seeing four adult Bald Eagles. Crane Festival January 14-15 2012 is here:

Pearl Harbor Knitting

Knitters were encouraged to knit for the military after the attack on Pearl Harbor 70 years ago today. Knitting was considered a patriotic activity.

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite Christmas cookies to bake and eat.
No fancy ingredients required.
