MarLira’s Creations, is now open in Coupland! It’s right behind the Stock-Up Food Mart. I stopped in on Saturday and met Julia. I got a free pork tamale sample. One was not enough! I bought a dozen for later but I couldn’t resist trying her barbacoa taco. Here is my official, food critic response:
I will definitely be back for more and to try her other menu items. Please support this new business in Coupland. You’ll be glad you stopped in.

Venus and Mercury are closest together this evening in twilight, 0.7° apart. Look low in the southwest about 45 minutes after sunset, as shown here. They’ll stay within 1° of each other through Monday.

Comet Lovejoy is bright enough to see with your eyes alone. It’s a beautiful blue-green. You probably get the best view with binoculars but if you don’t have binoculars, use averted vision. That is, don’t look right at it but use your peripheral vision just off-center from where you are looking. Look high in the south before the waning moon rises. Here is a chart showing where to look on specific days in January.
