  • I continue to be amazed at how quickly time flies, the older one gets. And even with this seemingly rapid passage of time, I do always take time to stop and smell the roses, as they say.

    So! One thing leads to another and after being reminded that it is time to get a flu shot (among other things), I elected to take the morning off and visit my favorite county seat, Mora for more than one reason.

Most winners will be elated and almost all losers will be sad and angry.
