"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. Thanks for that GV - there was I, 21, and the first time I had seen snow!

    Oh and that was what you call snow, not that dusting that we get now!

    And we had proper 'chuff-chuffs' too!

  2. That was a man's snow, Mr W! You can't beat a man with a shovel (er ... ) What I mean is that heated electric rails are no substitute for men with shovels when it comes to clearing snow. It also reminds us that snow in the UK is not some new phenomenom of climate change :-)

  3. Shucks GV, slapped wrist for me then - I slipped up not mentioning the climate change aspect! Suitably contrite!

  4. I see climate change rhetoric everywhere I go Mr W - no need for slapped wrists on this blog :-)
