My dear friends,
Thanks for all the support you provide . . . you're the only reason I am able to get through some days without making the national news. I teach at a small liberal arts "institution," and we just wrapped up lectures for the quarter. Don't know if you've already used this .gif before, but I thought I'd send it your way, nonetheless. It sums up my feelings during these days dealing with the depths of darkness and frigidness . . . both in the classroom and in the environment.
I toast you often during the late night, usually just before closing time.
