The teacher, at the end of day
Looks to the setting sun
With clasping hands she softly asks
“Dear God, what have we done?”
For anglers in spring it is always unlucky to see single magpies ; but two may always be regarded as a favourable omen. And the reason is, that in cold and stormy weather one magpie alone leaves the nest in search of food, the other remaining sitting with the eggs or the young ones ; but when two go out together, it is only when the weather be mild and warm, and favourable for fishing.
"Weather Lore: A Collection of Proverbs, Sayings, and Rules Concerning the Weather" Richard Inwards. 1898.

wakes me up calling his friends;

The clachan yill had made me canty,
I was na fou, but just had plenty;
I stacher`d whiles, but yet too tent aye
To free the ditches;
An` hillocks, stanes, an` bushes, kenn`d eye
Frae ghaists an` witches.

Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.

When Catholicism goes bad it becomes the religion of amulets and holy places and priestcraft: Protestantism, in its corresponding decay, becomes a vague mist of ethical platitudes. C.S. LEWIS.

If you can’t stand the heat… don’t start the fireplace.
If you can’t stand the heat… go swimming.
The original proverb: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
Harry S. Truman (1884-1972)
This year will be interesting in that we have 4 Lunar Eclipses rather than the usual 2.
Walk on a RAINbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty.There is a way out of every dark mist, over a RAINbow trail.
