That would be a cool place to stay - or to live in.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

I occasionally have had a mouse in my house. I wonder if I could lead it out by playing a flute?

Flute playing for rodents seems to be a lost art; it is not even mentioned here:

If the flute method did work, I wonder if I would have to take lessons, or would the mouse just follow any tune, even if it's discordant?

Do you ever wonder whether Helen Keller wore "Sunglasses At Night"?

I have never wondered that, but I do like that song.

At least it's a good song to be stuck with!

I'm not sure how to celebrate Insurance Awareness Day or Paul Bunyan Day. Maybe you know of some better holidays.
