    I wonder if Mike Morgan, the cartoonist, is aware that the day this was posted, February 24, is the anniversary of the birth of Charles Wesley’s son Samuel who was a composer and composed 100 or more hymn tunes, although few of them survive today even in the most obscure hymnbooks.

    It’s remarkable how insular climate change deniers are. All the explanations I have seen so far for the extreme weather in parts of the northern hemisphere this (northern hemisphere) winter say it stems from a stronger-than-usual “El NiƱo” effect, caused by WARMER-than-usual water in the south pacific, off South America. Meanwhile, when I mentioned the cold weather we are having right now in Hong Kong, a friend in New Zealand mentioned how how it was down there.

    You haven’t heard of the Twelve Days of Christmas?

    Going up is actually easier on your knees; walking down a flight of stairs is very hard on the knees, and something to be avoided if at all possible if you have bad knees. (I don’t, but my wife does.)

    Barefoot is best. It was best when I was a kid and it’s still best now I’m 66.

    No pun here, this time. Just a tongue-twister.

    To each his/her own. The Grapes of Wrath was never on the reading list for any class I ever took, but I read it on my own, liked it, read it again, then watched the movie. Encouraged by that, I tried a couple of other Steinbeck works, but had hard going with them. I did find them boring.

    In the old-time barber shops in Hong Kong, where I have spent most of my life since age 14 (I’m now over 60), the barbers always used to finish up all hair cuts with a straight razor to even up the sideburns and get the fuzz off the back of the neck. I haven’t seen that done for many years and had almost forgotten about it until I saw what people have said here.
