Some Wisdom From The Past...!
Some things only get better with age...fine wine, beautiful women, fond memories, ME, and good advice!
This was taken from the Old Farmer's Almanac. originally written a long time ago...it applies very well to the way of the world today, and is still very sound!
December Farmer’s Calendar
• Remember, ye wealthy and affluent, the sons and daughters of affliction! Think of those into whose shattered dwellings poverty enters to increase the inclemency and the horrors of the present season. Distribute bread to the hungry, and clothes to the naked.
• Pay off your mechanics, laborers, &c. Though the sum due to them be but trifling, they may suffer for want of that trifle at this inclement season.
• Now make it a point to balance your book of Accounts, call upon debtors for payments, so that you may begin the year square with every man.
–Robert B. Thomas, The Old Farmer’s Almanac, 1795 and 1796
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen. Raining outside again!
