IMPORTANT NOTICE: The blogger has received notice of new responsibilities relevant to new "laws" coming from the European Union. The blogger receives no personally indentifiable information. As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog. Europeans and others are instead directed to my new blog with a new host. (See link in post below.)

The Dog Days of Summer

Did you know?  Department --

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, these are the Dog Days, so named for the Dog Constellation of which the star Sirius is a part.

Somehow, these early days in August can seem more dolorous than they have to.  The Republican Presidential candidates' joint appearance last week has only added to the effect.  It is hard to comment seriously when a "candidate" such as Donald Trump is included.

But let me not dwell on the cause of summer doldrums.  Between vacation and a slight summer flu, I have had enough to cause low energy.  Fortunately, Yahoo has linked me to an article explaining that Coca-Cola and other sodas have added to my low energy, but covertly.  Now I have the chance to snap out of it by consuming green tea instead.  Joy!   Let it not be said that the Internet doesn't have needed information -- and just when you need it.
