One man's rant is another mans' anti-rant!

Perspective matters!

My sister and I were having a mock text rant about New England winters this afternoon.

But if you think it is cold and treacherous, and are fighting your way through ice, snow, sleet, rain wherever you may be... think about this:

Top of Mount Washington, New Hampshire,  elevation 6,288 feet (1,917 meters)

LAST UPDATED ON: THURSDAY DECEMBER 19, 4:48 PM EASTERN TIME (from the Mount Washington Observatory)

Wind Speed: 93 mph
10-Minute Gust: 110 mph
Wind Chill: -58 degrees F (about -50 C).

Suddenly, it seems very cozy here and we can dream about spring adventures while tucked under a down comforter sipping blackcurrant tea! : )

(Not a selfie, but just to show that women can and do climb Mount Washington, aka "Big George"!)

Pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring
Pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King
Pa rum pum pum pum
Ra pum pum pum
Ra pum pum pum


Ra pum pum pum
Ra pum pum pum pum pum
Yeah, I'm on the drum
Yeah, I'm on the stand drum
Yeah, I'm on the beat 'cause the beat goes dumb
And they only spare heat 'cause I'm playing for the sun

I absolutely cannot take seriously any war-zone reporter who has had Botox.

How can wait times always be longer than normal?

I hate the use of “nod” to describe a nomination. Seems to be a recent bandwagon.

I can’t see Scorsese’s new comedy the Irishman doing well at the Oscars. People seem to think it’s a drama. I couldn’t stop laughing, but then I only managed 30 minutes.

To all you naysayers out there, I’ve arrived. At least according to google maps.

Don Jóse didn't kill Carmen. English National Opera did - yesterday around 10 pm :-/

I’ll save one for you.

I’m sending the rest to myself, anonymously. I’m told you have to keep the mystery alive in a marriage. That will do it.
