Well…

…this would certainly help explain why the “fasten passenger-side seatbelt” light sometimes flashes on my car dashboard when all I have on the seat beside me (as far as I can tell) is my briefcase.

And, to think that the Americans actually figured this out nearly 70 years ago… quite amazing!

Just saying…

My dear Dad was a churchman, and somewhat of a crusader as well—no doubt a little like Thomas Fuller. (The brackets in the above quote are mine).

On women, and their eyes…

eyes_of_a_woman_3

Caution is advised, Gentlemen—from the moment of that first gaze…

Her eye (I’m very fond of handsome eyes)
Was large and dark, suppressing half its fire
Until she spoke, then through its soft disguise
Flash’d an expression more of pride than ire,
And love than either; and there would arise,
A something in them which was not desire,
But would have been, perhaps, but for the soul,
Which struggled through and chansten’d down the whole.

Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
Don Juan (canto I, st. 60)
