Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Brrrrr!

We're just not used to this weather. It's cold. I know, you poor saps wonderful people who live in the more northerly states are used to this sort of thing. You even pretend to like the cold air ("brisk", I think you call it). You enjoy the changing of the seasons and so forth.

Balderdash!

It's cold and a good lot of you agree with me. Otherwise, you wouldn't fill our streets and our restaurants each year between October and April. Not that I mind so much that I cannot drive from point A to point B in less than 30 minutes even though in all the other months it only takes 15 minutes. And I do not mind that I have to either eat very early or very late to avoid the crowds at the local restaurants.

But did you have to bring the cold air down with you?

Sheesh!

It is 52F outside according to the little gadget on my desktop. And I am miserable.

I totally agree! I lived in that minus 60 degree weather and still wonder what the hell I was thinkin! I now live in SW Louisiana and it's cold and rainy today with temps hovering around 50degrees and that's ABOVE zero but it still feels cold. If you live in the north it's just easier to call it nippy, brisk or whatever the hell they want then to pack up and move to a more temperate climate leaving family, friends and homes behind. Yeah, I would go with brisk if I were them and I'm glad I'm not ...not living in colder climes then what we have here today. At least the roads aren't icy and slippery. Did I mention it's "brisk" here today?
