In Greek mythology, the great inventor Daedalus and his son Icarus attempted to escape the island of Crete using wings made out of wax and feathers. While testing the wings, Daedalus warned his son of complacency and also of hubris, suggesting that he fly neither too low nor too high.
I used to really enjoy the television show, The Jetsons. Perhaps I’m dating myself with that statement, but the Jetsons – George, Jane, Judy and Elroy, were an average family living in a really cool, high tech society. The intro to the animated series demonstrated just how progressive the future was expected to be, depicting the characters wearing clothing that’s more in line with something out of the Hunger Games than anything we might know today.
As we are enjoying the last days of warm weather, winter is probably something you don’t yet want to think about. It can be hard to let go of those warm, sunny days, but don’t let a lack of preparation make it even harder on you and your home. When a chill sets in we trade t-shirts for hoodie sweatshirts, iced tea for hot cocoa, and air conditioning for heat, so why neglect our homes? Winterizing is just as important to enjoying a comfortable winter season, because the last thing you’ll want to deal with on a dreary, cold day is a frozen, busted pipe!
