  1. Thanks, so so good! Joyeux Noël !

  2. Merci pour le rirw. JOyeux Noël…

  3. How?

  4. Do they do that clock-change thing in France too? I thought it was just us. My oven doesn’t have a clock (well, the microwave does, but I never bothered setting it in the first place), but for those like the car clock where it’s too much trouble, for the relevant period I just remember that it’s one hour off.

    By the Tom Hanks logic, Peter O’Toole couldn’t have played Lawrence of Arabia. What a loss that would have been.

    Meat-eaters claim the antibodies in milk benefit people (they don’t, but that’s because humans and cows mostly don’t suffer from the same diseases), so Lecter’s question is a legitimate one.

    By all means, remember the plight of the Ukrainians. And in the US, spare a thought for our own railway workers too, forced to work dangerously exhausting schedules with (still) no paid sick time, robbed by Congress of their right to strike to improve their situation, working to deliver all the stuff in stores for oblivious hordes to fight over.

    Any who haven’t been reading your posts this year — it’s their loss.

    • I’m not surprised to learn that you are able to keep track of the time when your car’s clock is off by an hour, Infidel.

      Love Lawrence of Arabia. Have you also read the book? I’ve wanted to.

      Thanks for all the insightful comments you’ve left here. You’ve added an interesting perspective to nearly everything I’ve posted.❤️

      • I’m sure I’ve read Seven Pillars of Wisdom, but it must have been decades ago, maybe back in university days. Lawrence was something of a storyteller, and many suspect he embellished some details, concealed others. Given the times and circumstances, one can’t blame him. It’s just as well he never saw how places like Saudi Arabia and Qatar have turned out. He might well conclude Arabia would have been better off with the Turks after all.

        Thank you for the kind words — I look forward to another year of thought-provoking posts.

  5. Merry Christmas, Carol. I hope Santa is good to you. Best wishes for you and your family.
