What Food can be used as kindling?

Hello November!

What a great month to be in the Prescott area. With the time changing on November 3rd for most of the country, us Arizonians get to enjoy NOT changing our clocks. Something I love about living in this beautiful state. On November 11th  we take time to thank the mighty men and women of this great country who have and are serving to keep this nation the greatest nation in the world. Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service. November is  a month known for many things.

November is the eleventh month of the year in the Gregorian calendar and one of four Gregorian months with the length of 30 days.
The Latin translation of “novem” is nine, for it was originally the ninth month on the Roman calendar.
November begins on the same day of the week as March every year and also February except in leap years
In Finnish, November is called marraskuu, meaning “month of the dead”
In Xhosa, November is called ngeyeNkanga, meaning “month of the small yellow daisies”
November in the Northern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent to May in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa
Around November 17, the Leonids meteor shower reaches its peak

In 1863, Abraham Lincoln, declared the last Thursday of November to be a National Day of Thanksgiving.

“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”
– Elizabeth Coatsworth

Thank you November for these reasons to celebrate!
