Little bits of happiness!

A meme I can get behind: when you see this, post some Shakespeare (or if you've had enough of that already, your favorite poet).

That a woman conceived me, I thank her; that she brought me up,
I likewise give her most humble thanks: but that I will have
a recheat winded in my forehead, or hang my bugle in an invisible
baldrick, all women shall pardon me: Because, I will not do them
the wrong to mistrust any, I will do myself the right to trust
none; and the fine is (for the which I may go the finer,) I will
live a bachelor.

I went and changed the penny collection to something far more useful. Hooray nicely rolled pennies!

One thing I used to do: keep a change purse, three-compartment. Pennies in one, larger change in another, and exact bus fare in the third. Phoenix busses take pennies, and it's an excellent way of shedding them five to ten at a time.

The Ethics of Manipulation
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
