OldFarmersAlmanac2023While I generally do not plug things on My Desultory Blog, I do enjoy reading the paper edition of a couple of publications. Barron’s Magazine is my go-to weekend reading,BarronsCover220815 but their shrinking size and poor delivery has me giving up on renewing again. If they would promise Saturday delivery again, perhaps with the WSJ, then I would renew again, but they will not – go figure since both publications are by Dow Jones?

The other less serious read is The Old Farmers Almanac which is published each year (mentioned before). Those of a certain age will likely remember seeing dog-eared golden or yellow covered copies around rural homes and farms. It is always an enjoyable read, even if the weather forecasts are suspectand brings me back to my youth.

DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE, this will be the best of winters or memorable for all the wrong reasons,” reports Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. “One half of the U.S. will be dealing with bone-chilling cold and loads of snow, while the other half may feel like winter never really arrives.”
