RICHARD CROMPTON’S ‘WILLIAM’ – ‘What’s the good of us usin’ up all our brains at school so’s we’ll have none left when we’re grown up an’ have to earn our livins? I’d rather keep mine fresh by not usin’ it till I’m grown up an’ need it. I think that’s why grown-ups are so stupid, ’cause they’ve used up all their brains over Latin and History an’ such like when they were at school, an’ haven’t got any left.’ !!!!!
AMERICAN INDIAN PROVERB -Don’t judge a man till you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins. Not bad.
GLOBAL WARMING HITS MOSSLEY ! – well, perhaps not this week. The last few days have been really beautiful, if chilly. Pedestrians walk purposefully as if eager to reach their destination. Advent is a lovely season.
A former bishop asked us not to sing carols until Christmas and to defer the festivities until the Feast – but to no avail! But, we can be still now and again.
