Come join us by the bonfire tonight for the Harvest Moon. An interesting fact is that in the few days before and after the Harvest Moon, it rises around sunset, making it appear larger when seen against the horizon. It also often takes on an orange-like color. According to National Geographic, another October Harvest Moon will not be expected until 2020.
Tis the season for the southern flannel moth caterpillar. While this caterpillar doesn't yet float like a butterfly, it does sting a bit like a bee, and San Antonians can now expect to see it popping up in trees and bushes. This particular caterpillar injects a venom as a defense mechanism using its hollow-like hairs. However they are not predatory creatures and inject venom when they feel threatened. Found in trees and woody bushes, they'll soon vanish as cooler temps reign.

A timely illustration of the value of kindness. There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. “Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.” So it is with our lives... Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.
A facelift for The San Antonio River Walk barges. Besides the pretty new look, you can now expect a larger boat size and a bit higher off the water to afford better views of the River, more legroom, led lights for night time cruising and ecological electric instead of gas powered. The price will increase a couple dollars but it will be well spent with all the improvements. The current boats will be removed from the water tonight and the brightly colored new ones will take their maiden voyages tomorrow, 10.2.17.

There are lots of steps to winterizing your RV but here are 3 short tips. Please share another tip you feel is vital in the comments. 1. Keep your battery at full charge (a discharged battery will freeze faster than a fully charged one.) Recharge when at 12V. 2. Keep generator & fuel tanks full. Use fuel stabilizer and make sure to run engine till stabilizer gets through the system. 3. Fresh oil change before winterizing is always a good idea.
