    the second day of advent is Monday.

    that is more than 50h away!

    methinks you also need a new calendar.

    Is it like Lent and Sundays don't count? Or would that be self defeating?

    Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas.
    The long march through the institutions is nearly complete.

    As you get older the percentages decrease. I'm 50 so a year is just 2% of my life, whereas with our cubs its 10%. So life should be going slower not faster.

    Yeah. You're only acting on behalf of their moral welfare, after all.

    Nearly time for my favourite sound of all; the pitter patter of dried-out pine needles onto the presents below.

    It is terribly disappointing.

    Well thanks for that.

    A night camping, I should add, not just a day visit, with my explorers. And as my explorers are awesome, I'm sure the nights camping will be too. Or it'll be an anecdote at least. A win either way.

    Ho hum.
