GOD’S FROZEN PEOPLE – the bitterly cold weather cold weather kept us on our toes last week – the snow was the icing on the cake! It is said that if the weather is fine and frosty at the close of January, there is more winter ahead than behind. February, in the old proverbs, was known as fill-dyke, when the rain and melted snow filled the ditches to overflowing. On clear nights Venus is at her most brilliant in the South Western sky, and in the early morning.

IF – the coat be ever so fine that a fool wears, it is still but a fool’s coat.
J O’D – ‘Each day that is given to you is full of the shy graciousness of divine tenderness. It is a valuable practice at night to spend a little time visiting the invisible sanctuaries of your lived day. Each day is a secret story woven around the radiant heart of wonder. We let our days fall away like empty shells and miss all the treasure.’
E LEAR – There was an old person of Cheadle, was put in the stocks by the beadle, for stealing some pigs, some coats, and some wigs. That horrible person of Cheadle’
ISAAC NEWTON -Whence arises all that order and beauty we see in the world.
