To wondering eyes appear a sleigh with tiny reindeer -
To the top of the table, to the top of the tree, up with the star
With stamping of hoof, with gay snorts and laughter.
On the White House la...
I’m reading Somerset Maugham’s The Razor’s Edge - God I love that man. How does everyone else feel about him?

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once,...
We have a nice grocery store in my town. It’s part of a small chain and it can be counted on for good product, decent prices and good service. It has young people who pack your groceries, car...

I have another hopefully fun conversation ahead with granddaughter Kate.

This gave me great pleasure.
I do not expect ANYONE to waste the time to experience - Amis, McEwan and Rushdie but I wants to let people know that they exist and this video exists. We all like ...

One too many syllables for the first line of an haiku.
One too few for the middle line.
Doesn’t work for the last line either.
Feel free to argue with me about whether haiku deserves ‘a’ or ...
But take a look and listen at this. It’s Bob Crosby’s band. He was Bing’s little brother and pretty good in his own right. The song Bing Noise in Winnetka came to my mind when I saw one of ...
