Daytime has ended earlier and earlier these days.  When it was Summer, the evening wouldn't start at 5:30 in the afternoon.  But now with colder weather replacing hot weather as Winter replaces Summer, the sun falls exactly at 5:30.  And it will be like that for a few more months before the Gentle Reader and I can reach Summer again.  No snow has fallen.  It usually starts to snow in Ohio right about now, but it hasn't done so yet.  And while the polar bears and the penguins await the falling snow with anticipation, I won't have to shovel snow from the driveway.  Yes, I'm still torn on the issue regarding snow and ice.  Right now, it feels more like an extension of Auttumn with shorter and shorter days.  I guess I'm also fine with that.
And as I'm lost in thought about the arrival of Winter, here are some photos of film actress Katie Holmes.



They are from Canada.  Alan Anton is the only member of the Cowboy Junkies who isn't the biologic descendent of Noah Anthony Timmins.  Noah Timmins was originally a mining prospector who struck it rich and founded the town of Onterio suburb of Timmins.  Noah Timmins was also revered as the father of Canadian mining industry.  However, rather than persuing the expected career in the Timmins mining industry, Margo Timmins and her brothers Michael Timmins, Peter Timmins and her sister Cali Timmins chose a career in the Entertainment Industry.  Cali refused to join the Cowboy Junkies like her sister Margo, Michael and Peter Timmins, but instead got hired as an actress in the now canceled United States of America daytime soap operas Ryans Hope and Another World as well as one episode guest appearances until 2000.  Cali Timmins' films role include maiden in distress as Nova in Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone who along with Reena (Aleisa Shirley), and Meagan (Deborah Pratt) escape from a crashed spaceship only to be held hostage in a Mad Max replica post nuclear apocalyptic wasteland.  Cali Timmins spent her brief role sitting around waiting to be rescued by the Mad Max-like Wolff and his soon-to-be-adopted daughter Niki (Molly Ringwald) and his sidekick Washington (Ernie Hudson (of Ghostbusters fame).  
Sorry I got sidetracked.  Anyway, Margo Timmons and her brothers Michael Timmins and Peter Timmins and non-relative Allan Anton (He's like a brother they never had) forms a rock band that ranges from alternative, blues, country and folk.  Margo Timmins was born in Montreal, Quebec on January 27, 1961.  She later relocated to Toronto, Ontario (Which is close to the town of Timmins).  There are six children in the Timmins family (Including Margo, Michael, Peter and Cali).  The 24th album from the Cowboy Junkies has been released in 2012.
