Winter Merlin















Woodie Allen on aging and death...

"I find it a lousy deal," he said. "There is no advantage in getting older. You don't get smarter, you don't get wiser, you don't get more mellow ... Your back gets sore, your eyesight gets worse ...  I would advise you not to do it."

"My relationship with death remains the same," he said. "I'm strongly against it."

Falco After Breakfast















"We were nothing,we were only the past
Hard times like that don't last
I've been forgiven,I've been surpassed
By my heart

Cause it's almost over
Yeah it's almost gone"

Black and White Sunshine





























"Cedar Waxwings with orange instead of yellow tail tips began appearing in the northeastern U.S. and southeastern Canada in the 1960s. The orange colour is the result of a red pigment picked up from the berries of an introduced species of honeysuckle. If a waxwing eats enough of the berries while it is growing a tail feather, the tip of the feather will be orange."
