Good 46º scattered clouds morning. 
 
 
Happy Throw Back Thursday........ Later when Brian grew taller I ended up at the front of the line! L-R Brian, me, Kristen, Aaron, Jerry.
 
 
 
Yesterday stayed cool. Only 71º by noon. Some wispy clouds and a breeze kept the heat down. Then by the end of the day we topped at
85º.
 
 


Picture of the Day... Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
 
 
 
 
Interesting about The Scream..........
 
 
The Scream is the popular name given to each of four versions of a composition, created as both paintings and pastels, by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The German title Munch gave these works is 'Der Schrei der Natur' (The Scream of Nature). The works show a figure with an agonized expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky. Arthur Lubow has described 'The Scream' as "an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time."
On 12 February 1994, the same day as the opening of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, two men broke into the National Gallery, Oslo, and stole its version of The Scream, leaving a note reading "Thanks for the poor security". The painting had been moved down to a second-story gallery as part of the Olympic festivities. After the gallery refused to pay a ransom demand of US$1 million in March 1994, Norwegian police set up a sting operation with assistance from the British police (SO10) and the Getty Museum and the painting was recovered undamaged on 7 May 1994. In January 1996, four men were convicted in connection with the theft, including Pål Enger, who had been convicted of stealing Munch's Vampire in 1988. They were released on appeal on legal grounds: the British agents involved in the sting operation had entered Norway under false identities.

Tractor Dave got here about 5:45pm and finished up the brush hogging by 8pm. I won't see him again until next year. He put in a total of about 15 hours.

On May 9 raise your glass and toast National Moscato Day. Moscato, or Muscat in Italian, is one of the oldest known variety of grapes grown in the world.
The grape can be white to almost black and the flavor from sweet to dry. Because of this, it is quite versatile and is used to make everything from sparkling and dessert wines to dry and floral wines. Where one Moscato may pair well with a steak, another will go well with fresh fruit and a sharp cheese plate.
In February 2012, it was reported that Moscato wine became the third most popular white wine consumed within the United States.
HISTORY
National Moscato Day was created in 2012 by the Gallo Family Vineyards.  The Gallo Family Vineyards is a family-owned business that has been in operation since 1933.
