Happy New Year to all those celebrating :-)
Hey Cedar...I thought your name "Cedar Chopper" was because you were tough enough to cut one of those stubborn cedar trees down! Cedar is among the hardiest .....and they don't go down without a

Rosh Hashanah (The Jewish New Year) begins today at sundown. Have some applesauce and potato pancakes!
Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) begins NEXT Friday night at Sundown.  I'll light a Jahrzeit candle for my dad.  We lost him to a surprise abdomional aortic embolism 12 years ago.  He would be 81 last June. 

I keep up with Jewish holidays. 
(It has something to do with this Jewish Carpenter I follow around.... :-) ...)

My name comes from my Dad.  His nickname was the "Original Cedar Chopper." 
During the 1930s -he lived underneath what is now Lake Travis - West of Austin Texas. 
He herded goats and chopped cedar "posts" for fences and gates.

Thanks for the vote of confidence - 
I initially called upon dad's nickname to craft "posts" of ecouragement here to those where I can - and to fence out the darkness.....
My "fight" is for kindness, beauty, and truth.
And I really do thank God every day for all you beautiful, kind and caring people here!
To paraphrase some guy named Paul, against such friendship - there is no law!



In cedar brakes surrounding the oak groves in the Texas hill Country, the Golden Cheeked Warbler hides from bobcats and other predators by building nests only  in the oak trees - only with strands of bark from Texas Cedar (actually a Juniper....).
They are difficult to see and yet their beautiful song is easy to hear...  C2

Happy New Year from an Irish (lapsed) Catholic.
You know, I heard a Jewish comedian say one time that there is only one difference between the Jews and the Catholics.
Jews are born with guilt -- Catholics have to have it drilled into their heads at school.
But G-D knows we have it!
LOL.  Enjoy your holiday.
