Re: Word of Today

Guédelon - lovely medieval-style castle currently being built at Treigny, near Dijon, by people using medieval building techniques. Funded by visitors paying to look around, do workshops in various medieval crafts, and buy nice things among the cheap mass-produced junk in the gift shop. I recommend a visit if you're in the area ...

Re: Word of Today

Learned something new from my CFO: you are a virus on two legs.

Translated: go home and take some sick time

Re: Word of Today

I strongly suggest to obey your CFO. And get some Bissap, a magic drink, that will put you to healing sleep. I just got that off my neighbors. We added some fleur d'oranger, honey, lemon and mint. The superpowers are almost unbearable.

Get well.

It puts me back on my feet. Not sure if the Senegaleses dried flower is the same potency, but it never hurts to drink hibiscus. Hope that you are better.

Choral.

Calves are good too. But they both hurt today.

Perseverance.

Ikigai ((生き甲斐) -- a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being," usually used to indicate the source of value in one's life or the things that make one's life worthwhile.
