It's HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY HAYDON Day!!!! We hope it's a fabulous day for you Haydon, and the start of a remarkable year ahead for you!! Yesterday, while we were out Haydon dropped by and driveway cam was pleased as punch to catch him in action doing us a big favor ~ and so drivewaycam is sharing it in case you missed his visit. Thanks Haydon! Here are pictures and even videos (!) of Haydon on his last day of being 24 ~ Enjoy them, some birthday cake-n-icecream, and the views, and all the rest of the trimmings too :)

~ We've passed the halfway point of the month and things are going to start rolling very fast down to the end of the year! As the pace increases we hope you'll take time to stop and catch a few of the usual views along with some of the lovely seasonal views, with a tasty warm seasonal beverage, some tasty warm seasonal cookies, and some lovely seasonal music playing in the background (okay we'll stop...) You get the idea... take some time to relax and enjoy all the madness no matter what sort of traffic jam, cash register line, encampment at the post office, or fight with wrapping paper you find yourself in (despite your best planning and swearing that this year you'd get done earlier!) ~ Now, to the views and the fa-la-la'ing!

Friday, December 15th 2017 ~ Through no fault of their own the blurbetts were out yesterday and so today we are celebrating (1 day late) Adam's BIRTHDAY!!!!! ~ We hope it was a good day for you Adam and the start of a wonderful year!!!!! To celebrate may we suggest birthday cupcakes and tea all around, while wearing your worst or best (just ugliest) sweaters as it is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, National Cupcake Day, *and* International Tea Day!    Happy Birthday Adam!

Wednesday, December 13th 2017 ~ There is much joy (and some snow too!) in Mudville ~ we have enough to cover the ground and it's still falling. Ahhhh snow. Today is a great day to wander the views (if you don't want to wander outside that is) and explore new territories as it is the 440th anniversary of the day Sir Francis Drake sailed out of Plymouth to explore the Pacific (he returned there 3 years as the first British explorer to circumnavigate the earth). And it is the 99th anniversary of the day Woodrow Wilson arrived in France to begin the first official visit by a U.S. president to Europe. You can wander the globe all day long from the comfort of the driveway ~ so brew up some hot chocolate and Allons-y!!! We'll meet you out on the views ~

Tuesday, December 12th 2017 ~ Snow!!! Snow!!! Snow!!! There is dancing, not so much in the streets (the plows are very big and have trouble stopping quickly) rather among the blurbettes! History is celebrating the S word too ~ as it was 116 years ago today that Marconi sent the first wireless Atlantic transmission ~ it was simply the Morse-code signal for the letter “s” and it traveled more than 2,000 miles from Poldhu in Cornwall, England, to Newfoundland, Canada. Today is also the birthday of S crooner Frank Sinatra who would be turning 102. Last words to Frank as we head off to make some tea or hot chocolate (it's National Cocoa day after all) and watch it snow ~ via the windows for a while and then via the views ~

Monday, December 11th 2017 ~ Some snow to grace the driveway this morning ~ always helps on a Monday. Today's we-wish-were-meeting-these-interesting-lunch-companions are a couple of today's birthday-ers ~ Teri Garr (turning 73) and Alexander Solzhenitsyn (who'd be turning 99). We'd love to meet them at Freemans, or any where else they might like and would suggest.... It will help us get past the fact that today is also the day that the Apollo XVII astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt became the last men (to date) to land on the moon. Those were the days my friends ~ but before that gets stuck in our collective heads it's to the views and finding snow ~

Sunday, December 10th 2017 ~ Back in 1901 on this very day the very first Nobel Prizes were awarded ~ and as we type and watch, the 2017 awards are being presented. You can watch the presentations here. And (motives aside) today is also the day in 1869 that Wyoming became first territory or state in the history of the nation to acknowledge the right and allow women to vote. With thanks to Wyoming, a quick look in there, and a reminder that with the snow happening in the south and on the east coast the traffic cams are always a good view ~ it's off to see what the 344th day of the year brings ~ hopefully it will bring some more snow for us! Stay warm and enjoy the views ~

Saturday, December 9th 2017 ~ One of those days where there is so much to do (hustle and bustle wise) ~ there is the 5th Annual Holiday Brainery Bazaar (c'mon down, we'll see you there) to get started on that if you need a nudge. Hopefully we'll also finish putting up our snowflakes around the offices of Drivewaycam International (very important right now as we have no real snow flakes to watch) and get some other bustling done as well. Along with that it is the birthday of dear Grace Hopper (there wouldn't be driveway cam without her), and it's the anniversary of the most famous knitting poem (EVER) being published (Charge of the Light Brigade ~ yes, really). And, so you can set your alarms, tomorrow morning at 7AM (eastern) is the ceremony to award the Nobel prizes. You can watch it here, or c'mon over and watch it here. It's such an encouraging reminder that thinking is still valued, despite all the evidence daily that counters that notion. A driveway cam favorite, Kazuo Ishiguro, (author of novels including Never Let Me Go) is receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature ~ a list of all the recipients is here ~ now to the views and the hustling and bustling ~
