Season's Greetings One More Time

Please accept without obligation, express or implied, these best wishes for an environmentally safe, socially responsible, low stress, non addictive, and gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday as practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice (but with respect for the religious or secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or for their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all) and further for a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated onset of the generally accepted calendar year (including, but not limited to, the Christian calendar, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures). The preceding wishes are extended without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual preference of the wishee(s).
Or,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everybody!

And a Merry, politically incorrect Christmas to you as well!

From your 1/3/2009 comment on another blog: "Men don’t mind living with uncertainty. Women cannot stand it."

This never occurred to me but I think you're right. How did you come up with this fascinating insight?

Observation, experience, history, literature ....

I don't think that it is invariable. Some men are that way too -- Damocles is a man in the myth. And there are women who don't mind having a dozen loose ends that they will deal with, if and when they have to. But I think that it is true as a generality.

Sergio Leone used the more literal lesson of the Damocles myth very well in "Once Upon A Time In The West". Henry Fonda tells Charles Bronson in the final scene that he, Fonda, could never be a businessman because he could never go on with his business knowing that Bronson was out there somewhere looking to kill him.

I once called you a poet but I was wrong. You are a philosopher.

You also give good Webblog voting advice.

Thank you, DRJ, but I really want to be appreciated for my lamb and artichoke fricasse in egg-lemon sauce.

I meant to post on recipes before I quit but I didn't get around to it. That means you'll have to share your lamb recipe here.

It'd be better start in a new post, I think.
