Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, friends!
Another fresh new year is here, another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear.
To love, and laugh, and give!
   William Arthur Ward

No Animal…

No animal, according to the rules of animal-etiquette, is ever expected to do anything strenuous, or heroic, or even moderately active during the off-season of winter.

 Kenneth Grahame. The Wind in the Willows

We Remember

rememberance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

~ Laurence Binyon
