Hello. There is now more snow covering Chester County, PA this morning. Clever neighbors shovel, creating new and different boundaries from what was once their property lines. I can't blame them. This latest snowfall was heavy! Deliberately modifying where they have to shovel and even where to throw the snow is creative and has been done for years. Gerrymandering is a form of boundary redistricting in which electoral district or constituency boundaries are deliberately modified for electoral purposes, thereby producing a contorted or unusual shape. On this day in 1812, Massachusetts governor Elbridge Gerry "gerrymanders" for the first time.What a thing to be named after! I need to send out more velvet samples but left the books at my shop. It will have to wait until tomorrow. I have to admit, the landscape is beautiful today. Please remember to fill your bird feeders. Have gun today and if you have to push some boundary lines, do it for positive things. 'Mesh Metal Mirror' shown today. I said mesh, not mush, but that would have been more appropriate.
