its cold and dark outside

The greenhouse themometer yesterday showed it had been -1C during the night. Still a dry enough day to go out and help my friend plant a 6ft Snakeskin Bark Maple in an enormous container, it should be happy in there for years. A quick walk to the shore at Inverkip where there was a very chilly breeze and then it was 4.30pm and getting dark.
Plodding around the internet I found this amusing. . http://www.scripting.com/specials/vonnegutMIT.html

Oh! What a coincidence! I was just looking at some pictures of me and the kids when they were really small, and I couldn't believe the changes. I wasn't as fat as I thought I was! If I could only push back down to that weight now... working on it.

Even better than sunscreen, a bit ol' hat.

I really liked this one!

"Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth."

Thanks!
