There are 19 days left to Sant Jordi, our patron’s day in Catalonia (and also the Rose and Book Day)! Yay! :dance:

If you run under the rain you're still going to get wet.

It's also good synergy because Levar Burton used to host the "Reading Rainbow" show on public television and is a huge advocate for childhood literacy.

Reading and telling time are critical learning skills.

So are writing and mathematics.
Words are the litmus paper of the mind. If you find yourself in the power of someone who will use the word "commence" in cold blood, go somewhere else very quickly. But if they say "Enter", don’t stop to pack.

When interpreting a writer's work, it is important to look at the words they actually wrote. I am occasionally astounded by how many people don't understand that.

Hurrah for Sant Jordi! :D :clap:

Winter woollies are necessary right now in Melbourne (Australia), where I live - we've just had a taste of winter to come. High winds, unceasing rain, squalls... yuck. :(

Winter woolies are still useful here in Maryland, too - at night. Daytimes are beginning to warm, and the first ants of the season have begun to invade. *sigh*

The WWF wresting matches are choreographed and fixed in advance.

If I could see the future, I'd know which books I would need to keep. Unfortunately, I seem to have difficulty with that.

If I could see the future, I would know which numbers to pick for the lottery. Then I could play the lottery for the one and only time that I've ever played or ever will play the blasted thing. Otherwise I may as well just throw my money away. ;)

(Not a joke. I've never played the lottery, nor do I wish to do so - because the chances of winning are so vanishingly tiny).

If I could see the future, I'd know whether to wear long sleeves or short sleeves before I open the door. I'd also know whether to bring a sweater or a jacket, though the answer to that is generally yes, especially if I'm going to be out after 4 PM.

Hmm... I've looked up the London weather for the next week or so (I'll be flying in mid-next week). It actually doesn't look all that bad - 3 days of rain/drizzle, 3 days of sunshine/partly cloudy etc. It looks pretty similar to the weather here in Melbourne. Then again, I presume that I'm seeing London weather at its best? ;)

Back to the obvious game............... hmm. Wolves are rarely seen in the wilds, and rarely (if ever) attack anything larger than themselves. The werewolf legend may have grown up because humans wanted to imagine something more frightening than themselves.
