    The very same Sandburg. ;)

    FOG

    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Jack and Jill went up the hill
    To fetch a pail of water.
    Jack fell down and broke his crown,
    And Jill came tumbling after.

    Then up Jack got and home did trot
    As fast as he could caper;
    To Old Dame Dob who patched his nob
    With vinegar and brown paper.

    When Jill came in how she did grin
    To see Jack's paper plaster;
    Mother vexed, did whip her next,
    For causing Jack's disaster.

    Now Jack did laugh and Jill did cry
    But her tears did soon abate;
    Then Jill did say that they should play
    At see-saw across the gate.

    To infinity and beyond.

    I thought that was assinine (not you, the acts in and the concept of an oxygen "bar").

    Everybody knows you make friends with a welder and get all the free oxygen you want...:cool:

    Heh. And I bet none of you, OR a RARE one here or there actually knows the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne... The song soooo many sing every year... Yet most haven't got a clue about the words.. I find that, funny. Isn't also odd that song is like from the 16th - 17th century from primitive scotish clans.... Yet it's still here, world wide today...

    I was just thinking about that the other day. (And sorry about spelling it with a "z"--it's habit.) No, we really don't, as a rule, pay much attention, do we? I have another set of lyrics somewhere, and I don't think they say the same as these, but here goes:

    AULD LANG SYNE

    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And days of auld lang syne?
    And days of auld lang syne, my dear,
    And days of auld lang syne.
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And days of auld lang syne?

    We twa hae run aboot the braes
    And pu'd the gowans fine.
    We've wandered mony a weary foot,
    Sin' auld lang syne.
    Sin' auld lang syne, my dear,
    Sin' auld lang syne,
    We've wandered mony a weary foot,
    Sin' auld ang syne.
    We twa hae sported i' the burn,
    From morning sun till dine,
    But seas between us braid hae roared
    Sin' auld lang syne.
    Sin' auld lang syne, my dear,
    Sin' auld lang syne.
    But seas between us braid hae roared
    Sin' auld lang syne.

    And ther's a hand, my trusty friend,
    And gie's a hand o' thine;
    We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne.
    For auld lang syne, my dear,
    For auld lang syne,
    We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne.


    InPeace,
    InLove

    You had to go find lyrics though eh? True we don't pay much attention to detail... Becuase I am sure most people if you asked them to translate Auld Lang Syne... Wouldn't be able to... Yet come every year they sing it.... Humming or mubble the bits they know with all their hearts lol.... It could mean... "I hate this world please make this the last year...."

    LOL--well the reason I was already thinking about it is that I got a CD for Christmas that has all the words. So, I was ready to dance to this one! :)

    InPeace,
    InLove

    Edited to add: Now you have me thinking of something my husband (who is quite Scottish in ancestry) says often (he borrows it from Mike Meyers (sp?), of course): "If it's not Scottish, it's c-r-r-a-p!":D

    Hi,

    You make it sound like it's a hobby of mine (The Lounge Rush Tango, not the coffee drinking - that's a vocation:p )

    Not at all, Snoop--we know you are just having fun and I'm glad you did it because things were really boring!

    Okay--I've got news (in more ways than one)!

    I love it when I really get peeved about the local school district making a stupid decision to keep the schools open in dangerous weather and road conditions, and I decide to blog in to the local news station and the conversation I am involved in makes it onto the television reports. Yes! I guess maybe one (or a few, anyway) voices can really make a difference. The school district did not change its policy for the day, but judging by the ongoing reports, they are surely wishing they had by now!

    I know that there are probably lots of people reading this who make a difference by getting into the "media mix" all the time. But I haven't made much of an impact in this way in a long time. So, it is very satisfying for me, and maybe next time the roads are dangerous around here, the people who make these kind of decisions will proceed with a bit more care.

    By the way, it looks like at least half the States are in a kind of deep freeze, or have been recently, so everyone hang in there. Hope everyone here in CR is okay. And California lost its entire crop of winter fruit, I hear. Bummer.

    Brighter days to come....

    InPeace,
    InLove
