Caturday Reflections

The more things change…

The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. - H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)

Black History month edition:

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. – Martin Luther King  (1929-1968)

Caturday edition:

Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods. - Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

NOTE: My eyes are slowly improving as the steroid treatment continues, enough so that I can fully appreciate the beautiful flowers that arrived yesterday with love from the MOTI. As ever I can’t thank you enough for the joy, beauty, scent and love they bring with them. This arrangement includes bells of Ireland, saucer sized pink Japanese peonies and nearly as large vibrant yellow roses.


Add a cat and you would have absolute perfection.

Just remember: Valentine’s Day is both an exhibition AND a competition. There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing.
