It's snowing here in Berkeley County, Steve. It should be only a little over an inch, but that's enough to make the roads slippery.

Shirley McLaine is going to be in the 3rd season (on PBS) of "Downton Abbey", which starts in early January. The show is wonderful, as it is now, but I know she'll add another element of enjoyment to it. I'm really looking forward to it.

But Machiavelli was of the mindset that a prince must rule with an iron fist-squash the rest into oblivion. Knowing this changes how I view his statements. It may or may not for others. His bigger problem is that he lived through the Borgias. He didn't think society should be without a prince, he espoused hatred for hereditary princes. A prince who took power was best. Very tainted view.

Shirley is an excellent example of laughter as the best medicine and she's an excellent healer.

Surprise, I picked the political quote. And I agree that:

"Politics have no relation to morals.
Niccolo Machiavelli".
Some people are praying to a false god, the almighty $$.
