The Origins of Some Interesting Sayings...

My friend Rindy sent this to me.  I love learning about the origins of language, especially colloquialisms, and am passing it along. It's a bit lengthy but interesting, at least to a language nut like me. Forgive the somewhat colorful phrase here and there...

Biscuits and The Heathen Hours...

Cold and foggy makes for a beautiful morning
It's Sunday and I must confess.  I often spend my Sunday mornings at Jungle Jim's International Market in Fairfield, Ohio.  It's quiet then. My husband calls this time on Sunday mornings The Heathen Hour.  No crowds -- especially this time of year.  Most people are in church or in bed. It's fun because all the produce managers and fish mongers and department managers are there.  If you need something special, they are there to chat and figure it out for you.

Baby, It's Cold Outside...

Overstating the obvious, as usual.  But I decided to load up a pix that gives a pretty good idea of what it's like around here today... enjoy!

In Harmony...With My Heart

Last week I had the opportunity to watch HRH Prince Charles' gorgeous environmental movie Harmony. It was a visual delight and an inspiration. 

Harmony made me feel as though I'm not just one little guy banging  my head against a wall of indifference in my concern for the earth.  There are others out there, many of whom have greater resources than I and whom one wouldn't think were your typical tree huggers; who are working hard to make a greater impact in the global environmental movement.
