I really don’t like summer to much, but got 6 out of 10. Maybe I will do better on the winter quiz :)

I hate New York Summers not because of the heat but the humidity so I am ready for winter already. I will say with all the humidity the gardens are doing great, too bad the elderly weren’t doing as well in this suffocating air.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
