NOTE:  Hurricane Irma has put me behind -- but mostly it's been AT&T who only restored my internet (and television and home phone) on Monday afternoon (25 Sep)
My power (Florida Power and Light) was restored on the 15th  even though I had a line down in my back yard!  If FPL had shown the dilegance and service of AT&T, I wouldn't have had power intil Thanksgiving.  [Although it did turn out that my gateway box was bad -- and when we finally reached a person, they sent out a repairman to fix the problem in an hour]


Oktoberfest and Autumn


Oktoberfest is an annual beer/folk festival held in Munich, Germany (and copied around the world).  Contrary to what you might think because of the name, Oktoberfest in Munich starts in mid-September and goes to early October (this year, from 16 Sep - 3 Oct).  Munich only allows beer brewed in Munich to be served in the offical Oktoberfest area -- 1. Augustiner-Bräu  2. Hacker-Pschorr-Bräu   3.  Löwenbräu   4. Paulaner   5. Spatenbräu    6. Staatliches Hofbräu-München.
 

There are many Oktoberfest celebrations in the US -- many run by local German-American clubs -- and most feature other beers too -- smile

Of course man can not live on beer alone (although I'd like to try -- smile).  Oktoberfest is also known for sausages and pretzels.
 

 

 





 


















Fall

Fall officially begins with the autumnal eqinox which is on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 20:02 UTC (4:02 pm EDT).  (This coincides with the vernal equinox -- start of Spring -- in the Southern Hemisphere)
In the US, Autumn is known for harvest and leaf colors (and finally cooler weather for most of us -- smile).



 





 



 

 

 

 

  

 



See you next time -- don't drink too much Oktoberfest beer (German or not).
