It's not even thanksgiving, and there is already that yucky Christmas music playing on the radio!!! confused.gif Doesn't it get sickening enough playing that crap AFTER thanksgiving and having to put up with it till January?

Don't get me wrong, I love the Lord, I just hate that sickening music that has nothing to do with Him at all!

What's next, Are they going to start rolling out the Christmas tunes right after Labor Day?

Cal....It's only a little over a month away? It's a seasonal thing...a week or so from now and it will be all fine and good. It's only for a short time...it could be worse. And it's not gonna change! Why put yourself through it?

We started playing classic Christmas music a week ago....Dean Martin, Elvis, Bing Crosby....gotta work up to it, get in the mood, it helps soften the blows of the up comming Christmas debt. Grit your teeth, you'll get through it. It's like snuff, some people like it, some don't! grin.gif Hey, what about switching stations?

I don't suppose it's anything different then preparing for the summer or winter openers in advance? FleetFarm, Cabellas, Gander, they all come out with seasonal stuff well in advance of the actual event...of course you don't have to listen to a new reel, or a tip-up, or a pair of waders in their ads...but they are just trying to lighten peoples spirits and get people in the Christmas holiday mood!

I agree! The Philistine merchants have to sell, sell, sell and some college educated bozo told them Christmas Music puts people like us in the mood to spend, spend, spend. Personally, I just give a card with money in it and they can go buy what they like AFTER the Christmas sales are over and get it for 50% off. No shopping, No listening to dumb music, and more time to fish.

P.S. If they tell you giving money is NOT Christmas remind them that GOLD was one of the gifts they gave at Bethlehem!

I know one thing, the Boy Scouts best get to steppin with their wreaths if they want us for customers again this season! I danged near bought one from Cub when we went grocery shopping this morning.

If something doesn't develope by Friday, we'll be going back to Cub. Yesterday, we put up a nice little Balsam my wife picked out....get an early start on the fire hazard!

She has some gifts wrapped and under it already! I used to be a "Bah, Humbug!" but over the years, she has changed me and I helped!

Now I look forward to Christmas, why, we were even dancing to some Elvis Christmas music just this afternoon! cool.gif

Calvinist,

I agree with you. It's the season to avoid the radio and the malls. Christmas has become insanity. Time to hunker down with family and celebrate the real reason for the season.

I don' know about the rest of you, but Jingle Bell rock and "I saw momma kissing Santa Claus" every hour on a canned station are not my idea of classical Christmas music.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
