Here we are. Friday and we are in February. Yes! Because it seemed like January was 74 days long. Is that possible?
Sometimes you just need to rise above!
Just a preliminary. In case you did not receive a copy of our January newsletter… here it is (HERE) and also a way to subscribe.
So just a couple of things because I don’t want to take you on a major blog expedition. Just some thoughts.
This falls under the category of arms control. But not such a good ending. Around the middle of the 16th century, Hideyoshi, known as the peasant ruler of Japan, ordered that all the swords in the nation be collected… and melted down. The metal was then used to construct an enormous Buddha. Does that sound like a good idea?
It took 50,000 skilled workers more than six years to build the statue. Ten years later… an earthquake brought it down. No good! I guess that’s truly living in the present because there was no future for that statue.
How about this game? “Hot Cockles” was a popular game at Christmas in medieval times. No… not Hot Pockets (which is perfect if you just feel like burning the roof of your mouth)
Here’s Hot Cockles, in case you want to play it with friends and family this weekend. Players took turns striking the designated blindfolded player. The blindfolded player had to guess the name of the person who was hitting them delivering each blow. Just a friendly game… among friends who want to be enemies? How about some friendly “slappage”.
And finally, here’s some useful information. Did you know that the Donald Duck comics were banned from Finland… because he doesn’t wear trousers. Not even pants on the ground.
I hope you have a great weekend. These are the good days!!! And I hope your weekend includes some sit-down time! (I know what you are thinking. Apparently pictures that require magnifying glasses are really relaxing)
