Hello Friends, What Are Those 3 Stars?

I’ve felt really distant from my blog lately, and so I wanted to say hello and give all my readers and friends a warm welcome. Speaking of warm, we’ve had quite an “Indian Summer.” I’m kind of kicking myself in the ass for taking my air conditioner out of the window, but I thought October 1st was a reasonable date considering how cold the nights have been.

I don’t know how many of you keep up with basketball, but I read yesterday Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets has walked way from the NBA and a boat load of cash. Irving refused to get vaccinated, and basically that’s what it all came down to. Get vaccinated and play, or refuse and don’t. I have a lot of respect for Irving after making this decision because here’s a man who walked from fame, money, the NBA-all of it, for what he believed in. He has a higher purpose in life and he knows it. Good luck Kyrie Irving.

Monday the 11th was Columbus Day, and I was taught in school that Christopher Columbus discovered America. When I got older I realized there was a great possibility he didn’t, and the evidence was overwhelming. I have a book in my personal collection that claims America was discovered at least a half a century before Columbus even stepped foot on the continent. The things we learned in history class in school were all taught from a book, and as time goes on people research and challenge those historical topics, but I must be honest, it seems like once something is accepted into the text book, it’s often difficult to have that content changed.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out our Nooz Buffet merchandise page, do it! I brag about the coffee mugs all the time because they’re that awesome. I bought everyone Nooz Buffet coffee mugs for Christmas last year. You’ll also find T-shirts and some other cool stuff there.

Did anyone look up at the sky last night?

That bright ball of light is the Moon, but if you look closely, you can see two small white stars above and diagonal from the moon. There’s a third star but it’s faint. This picture was taken with my cell phone camera. The brighter of the two stars is on the left. If you look closely below that star about 3/4 of an inch and a little to the left, you’ll see the third star.

I have no idea what these three stars are, but I would love to know.

Alright everyone, it nice to have some time to blog again. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this wonderful October!

Halloween-23 More Days

Can you feel the excitement in the air? It’s almost that time! We are twenty-three days away from Halloween 2021.

For whatever it’s worth, there’s another Halloween movie (as in Michael Myers) coming out this year. I can’t believe it. I’m just one of so many people who grew up watching Halloween on Halloween. It was a tradition. 🀣

The latest is called Halloween Kills, and its release date for movie theatres in the United States is October 15th. Jamie Lee Curtis will be the star, of course, unbelievable, and incredible at the same time, and from what I read, she leads a vigilante mob to destroy Michael Myers once and for all. I can’t wait. I hope it’s good. For all of you youngsters who haven’t seen and aren’t familiar with the original, make sure you see it. The original Halloween came out in the 1970’s, and it was one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Part 2 was good also, but after the first two, things get a little weird and drawn out. True fans of the movie understand what I mean, and you will to once you start watching them.

So, Halloween, the night we all dress up and go out for candy is the pre-celebration for the western Christian festival of All Hallows day or All Saints Day on November 1st. (111) It is believed the tradition of celebrating Halloween was influenced by ancient Celtic harvest festivals, and the Gaelic Festival, Samhain. Samhain marks the end of the harvest season, which makes way for the winter and generally, the darker half of the year.

Spooky!!

All right my friends, have a wonderful night and a blessed day tomorrow!

As the Seasons Change and Time Moves Forward, We Move With it

When I registered with WordPress in 2018, I had no idea it was the first day of Fall. Every year now, in the month of September, we celebrate both. It’s hard to believe, but yesterday was our 3-year anniversary. I’d like to thank all of our readers, followers, and fans; we love you and appreciate your support.

Today is September 23rd, which means in seven more days 2021 will be 75% or three quarters done. It’s basic math-twelve months in year are broken down into 3-month quarters.

Yesterday, the 22nd, was the first official day of Fall. According to the craft, the autumn equinox (first day of Fall) is the time when the God prepares to leave and the Goddess rests. Today, this day is celebrated as Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims celebrated it September, but in the nineteenth century, it was changed to November by Abraham Lincoln.

Remember to Keep the Sabbat Holy

Tomorrow is August 1st, and it’s the first day of Lughnassadh, the feast of bread and time of transformation. I don’t get too involved with the celebration, I consider myself to be more of an outside observer. I’ll buy yellow candles and frankincense, and I’ll keep the Sabbat holy until the time of the Equinox.

Independence Day

Happy 4th of July 2021! 245 years ago on July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was formally adopted by congress.

Americans today recognize the 4th of July as the day we claimed our independence from Great Britain. We celebrate it by barbequing, spending time with friends and family, and shooting off fireworks.

Today in 2021, on July 4th, America is 245 years old. Happy birthday America!

Have a blessed and joyful day!

MLK Jr.

With the attack on history in this country I’m surprised we even recognize Martin Luther King Jr., but you know what, Nooz Buffet will.

King was born on the 15th of January in Atlanta Georgia, and he died on April 4, 1968 in Memphis Tennessee. He was just 39 years old when he was assassinated during his famous “I have A Dream Speech.” Yes, he was a minister, but he was also an activist and remembered most for his leadership during the Civil Rights movement.

MLK believed in equality, and he devoted his life to ensuring black Americans were given the same rights given to all Americans spelled out in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution. He was a follower of Mahatma Gandhi, which inspired his belief and use of peaceful protesting and nonviolent resistance.

Today, Monday, January 18th, we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
