12 days of Christmas, learned something new:

On the 9th day of Christmas my true love (God) sent to me Nine Ladies Dancing. The nine attributes of the Fruit of the Holy Spirit: 1) love, 2) joy, 3) peace, 4) patience, 5) kindness, 6) generosity, 7) faithfulness, 8) gentleness, and 9) self-control. (Galatians 5:22)

Davidson Basketball:  It’s a great day to be a Wildcat. GO Davidson, BEAT Duke!  I’ll report back tomorrow …

 traditions, RIP, Nancy Wells Johnson: I thank Debbie for giving me this lovely remembrance of Nancy every time I see or smell rosemary.

Hamlet

Act 4. Scene V

OPHELIA

There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray,

love, remember: and there is pansies. that’s for thoughts.

Remembering Nancy Johnson today.

just a thought …: I like this … But I would probably pay dearly.

fiscal cliff:

Again I’m much more glum. I’d say we’ve accelerated our trip to disaster. My big puzzle is why young people are not in the streets. They are really being hosed, sentenced to a living standard much lower than their parents because of boomer greed. I guess it’s hard when you are 25 to imagine the tax bill and the benefit cuts that will hit when you are 40, but someday interest rates will return to their normal levels and it will all come crashing down.
