There’s a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon coming out. Why, I don’t know.

It’s oh so very cold here. There’s a weather advisory that the wind chill could get down to somewhere between -3 and -20 degrees Fahrenheit.

For lack of anything interesting of my own to say I found some Langston Hughes Poems:

The Dream Keeper

Bring me all of your dreams
You dreamers.
Bring me all of your
Heart melodies.
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too rough fingers
Of the world.


Lovely, dark, and lonely one
Bare your bosom to the sun
Do not be afraid of the night
You who are a child of night.

Open wide your arms to life
Whirl in the wind of pain and strife
Face the wall with the dark closed gate
Beat with bare, brown fists
And wait.

… and now for something completely different.

“Well, what it comes down to is about half of the slaughter of animals is non-sellable to humans. They either have to pay to put it into the dump or they sell it for feed, so they grind it up, turn it into something that looks like brown sugar, add to it all of the animals that died unexpectedly, all of the road kills and the euthanized animals. Add it to them, grind it up and feed it back to other animals. It’s about as simple as you can be. We are doing something to an animal that was never intended to be done. . . .”

This is a quote from Howard Lyman, a former rancher, being interviewed on Oprah. (Full transcript)
