Actually, it is now December. Before we know it, it will be Christmas and then, soon after, New Year's Eve.
It is looking like December in another way: it is cold out! For Los Angeles (and many parts of California), the last week of November has been quite cold. Global warming? That's a bunch of B.S. anyway. It is a fraud perpetrated by statists to impose laws restricting everyone's freedoms. I have heard that the temperatures over the weekend for the Mojave Desert ranged from the teens to the thirties. It was very cold at Joshua Tree National Park while I was there. It was so cold that the concrete benches at the campground's amphitheater were too cold to sit on. So I stood during the ranger program on the night sky's constellations. I had on my wool coat from my days as a scout leader, and that kept me pretty warm.
November ended on a good note. My review on the Chiriaco Summit Campground (that is directly behind the General George Patton Memorial Museum) has been approved by RV Park Reviews. But there's a little problem with it. It appears on my profile page, but the link to the full review just takes people to the list of campgrounds in Indio, California. I have alerted the management of this, so hopefully it will be ironed out shortly.
I am still waiting for my latest article at JapanTravel to be approved. They have a little back-up going on there. But one of the moderators likes it. It just has to finish "going through the process".
Also, I began my Christmas shopping yesterday. Thankfully, everyone I am buying for is making the task easier as they indicated what they'd like to receive. Buying clothes for women/girls is not something I can do with any degree of competency. I as mentioned to one, giving gift cards from their favorite stores would work better as I may end up buying them "mom jeans". That definitely would not work!
