our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Here in Fayetteville, yesterday was rather horrendous, but today we're having a beautiful day. I think it's likely that there's a good chance that wherever you might be, it feels rather like a winter day today.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnZdlhUDEJo - Hazy Shade of Winter - Simon and Garfunkel
|"A Hazy Shade of Winter" is a song written by
Paul Simon, recorded and released by
Simon & Garfunkel in 1966, and then included on their 1968 album,
Bookends (although it also appeared on their
Live from New York City, 1967). It peaked at #13 on the
Billboard Hot 100
making it the second highest-charting song on the album after "Mrs.
Robinson", which reached #1
when it was released on the back of its inclusion on the soundtrack of
Critic Richie Unterberer described the song as "one of [Simon and Garfunkel's] best songs, and certainly one of the toughest and more rock-oriented".
The lyrics evoke the passage of the seasons, but (as the title suggests) focusing on the gloominess of winter...

FINALLY:From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/07/15:
A 20-something year-old girl finally decided to introduce her boyfriend to her parents. She hid him from them because she was afraid of how they'd react because he was very religious, but now that they were engaged she couldn't hide it anymore.
The boy shook the father's hand firmly and sat down for a talk.
"So I understand that you want to marry my daughter. Do you have a job to support her?"
"With God's help, sir, someday soon I'll find a job."
"Are you planning on having children?"
"With God's help, sir, someday, yes."
"I understand that you're a student. How are you going to pay your tuition and afford a baby?"
"With God's help, sir, I'm very certain both of these are possible goals."
The conversation went pleasantly and politely. After the boy left, the mother asked the father, "Well? What do you think of the young lad?"
The father replied, "He seems pretty nice; the only problem is that he seems to believe that I'm God."
