That woodstove sure feels good these days. Someone asked me the other day why us Scandahoovian types always go in for fiery things this time of year. You know, yule logs, candles, bonfires and the like. He wondered if it was some archetypal solar imagery designed to draw that fiery orb back. "Naw", I said, "It's just cuz it's so danged cold." Ba-dum.
Hope you all enjoyed last night's solsticial lunar eclipse. The kids dragged me out of bed to look. "What's the big deal?" I asked. "I don't see any moon." Ba-dump.
