As the quarantines and other guidelines and recommendations surrounding the coronovirus epidemic are being relaxed in various countries, everyone is cautioned not to expect an automatic “return to normalcy” in our daily lives. The viral infection hasn’t disappeared or even been completely eradicated. Transmission remains a very real possibility and there exists no known vaccine or cure.
For all of us bare practitioners (bisexual and gay naturists and nudists), maintaining a respectful distance and other safe practices are highly encouraged! The reality of a secondary wave of infection remains a valid concern.
Many of us bare practitioners anxiously welcome the beginning of daylight savings time, no matter where we live. It afford us, at least, an extra hour of daylight, or more, for as long as it endures. This additional natural lighting permits us more time to roam throughout without having to wear clothing! Not that we require the daylight in order to enjoy our being naked, but daylight savings time (DST) does permit us a longer period of natural (outdoor) fun and freedom!

The title is very suggestive of the game of basketball because here in the USA, for many years the very term, March Madness, was used enthusiastically and emphatically by sports fans to denote the month as one of endless collegiate competitions leading to champions in the basketball world. As an obsessive basketball fan myself, I am one to overuse the designation every year regardless of whether or not the topic is basketball.

The best and the traditional way to greet someone on this international day of affection, devotion, love and romance is with either a hug or a kiss (or both) and the salutation: “Happy Valentine’s Day!” So the above gif. image extends to everyone reading here a hug and a kiss and the approved salutation is included in this paragraph. Best wishes to all of you (single or otherwise) for this special day!

An extremely fickle month! One day it is pleasant enough to take a hike in the bare and barren woods – then the next day be forced to bundle under a dozen layers of clothing before stepping outside on the way to work. The month is notoriously unpredictable as to the outdoor temperatures and often bounces from one extremity to the next. If this is caused by global warming, then someone needs to educate the political leadership!

The first day of Winter is this upcoming Sunday, December 22, 2019. Of course, the cold and frigid temperatures are applicable for all of us who reside inside the Northern Hemisphere. Those fortunate to live in the Southern Hemisphere are all too happy to welcome the warmer temperatures and their “beach season!”

The first Sunday in November, (this year, November 3) annually, marks the end of Daylight Savings Time (DST) and the return to standard time in the USA. This timing event heralds the end to the seasonal adjustment for more daylight hours and returns us to the barren sequence of timing that brings us to a time of winter. The colder outdoor temperatures encourage the majority of us to spend more time inside with the coziness of warmth.

The World Naked Bike Ride is held annually, throughout the year, on every single continent on earth except Antarctica (note: penguins and seals don’t pedal bicycles). The event isn’t restricted by precipitation and most rides continue even through the rain. Downpours may affect the number of riders, but for the most part, the rides are still held. This event takes place all year long as extreme temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere are usually moderate in the Northern, and vice-versa.

My summer daytime returns to a normal routine of solitude this weekend as my friend, Jay, flies back to his home tomorrow. It was terrific having him here this week and the time passed much too quickly for us both. We did manage to read three of the four of John Grisham’s books on our list – “A Time To Kill,” “The The Pelican Brief,” and “The Client.” We didn’t have the time to read “The Firm” so last night we went to a local bookstore and we each bought a copy to read this weekend – me, bare, riverside and Jay while flying home.

Those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere are now experiencing the busy and fun-filled season of warm weather, plenty of sunshine and the strong urge to bare all and be 100% natural (clothes-free) outdoors. Despite the urge, there are many among us who cling to many of the misinformation and misunderstanding regarding the benefits and protection of sunscreen. This post is an effort to dispel those myths with facts.
