Completely agree with Wulf (and Lindy). Have been wearing double socks for several years now with excellent results - very comfortable!

et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis - just a reminder that it means "peace on Earth to men of good will". Not to everyone.
Quite agree. The NT Greek (which the Latin vulgate above translates) is: καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκίας.
 ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία translates to “men well-seeming” or more referentially, “men In whom he is well-pleased.”
The point being that on earth it’s up to us to live in peace with one another. A point found, I think, in all ethically based religions (or philosphical systems).

Or as the judge said in “Bonfire of the Vainities” , “Go, and be decent to each other!”

[Verse 1]
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, my dog doesn’t know he’s old
My dog just knows if he’s hungry, thirsty, horny, hot or cold
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, and that’s why people stare
And even if my dog did know, my dog just wouldn’t care
My dog is sweet and gentle, but he’s uglier than sin
He’s shed most of his fur, and now he’s started shedding skin
My dog’s eyes are always twitching and his lip is always curled
My dog looks like he’s plotting the destruction of the world

[Verse 2]
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, my dog doesn’t know he’s old
My dog still struts around like he’s some canine centerfold
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, or that he’ll cease to be
Perhaps that’s why my dog seems so much happier than me
My dog’s right eye is bloodshot, and his left one’s milky-white
His last few teeth are clustered in a hideous overbite
My dog is almost blind but hasn’t noticed yet at all
So his skull’s all creased from where he keeps on running into walls

[Verse 3]
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, my dog doesn’t know he’s old
My cat keeps trying to tell him, but my dog just won’t be told
My dog doesn’t know he’s ugly, my dog still thinks he’s glam
I wish I were more like my dog – oh God, perhaps I am

With apologies to John Finnimore  (who I think is a comic genius) for ripping this off from t'internet.

Cheers - Phil

Ooops... Embarrassed

I meant to say this is my 'Christmas song', as I don't think Nobby has got the time to do his panto' this year.

Au contraire Mon Vieux; in the original Greek (Codex Sinaiticus) it is "ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία", in the vernacular "Peace on earth, good will to men"

The dog is a peasant. The cat is a gentleman.

'twas the Latin I was translating.

I like my mother's version best: "Play nicely, children."

Bought some woollen socks yesterday - thin and thick. That two pair advice works a treat. Have now had the two most comfortable walks I’ve had in months.
