Haha - indeed!  But it is far, far away so there are no fancy primates messing around with it.

Here at home today, the cold snap continues:

One never knows what sorts of primates, reptilians, arthropods, or maybe cephalopods are mucking about out there.

Only formal tea ceremony for Cuchulainn this year.

The trick is - to enter the tea house, you have to crawl through a very small doorway (the "nijiriguchi").

Do you know why?

ImageThis is what I would have liked for New Year's Day.
But around here, you tend to get leeches or other atrocities instead. :D

It's fine, I will go and buy myself some white roses at the local luxury farm stand.

japanese for cat-flap?

It symbolically separates the small, simple, quiet inside from the crowded, overwhelming outside world, although why they can't do that with a door instead of a cat-flap escapes me

You'll need to post some barrier options to keep us barbarians out of your more civilized threads.

Leeches reduce blood pressure! Something roses cannot do. Think about it.

Leeches stick to you through thick and thin. Roses are more fickle, the fall off, one by one.

if you stop and smell the roses, that helps reduce blood pressure

It is all fine. Time for a wilderness adventure soon - and maybe some skiing not too far north of here.

Did you see the Super Moon?
