In which politicians show their true colours - again.

Last night I finished the first half of the Fuzzy Blanket of Doom. This was supposed to be a present for the Youth of Today for his birthday, but things conspired to make it be late - new reed for loom, miscalculation of quantities needed, discovering that the fuzzy yarn I'm using beats tighter than handspun wool so takes twice as long to weave.. but yes! Half a fuzzy blanket is better than none, right? And it will be WARM!

Have a thing from Antonio Machado (not to be confused with Antonio Banderas):

"Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, nothing more; there is no road --
you make the road by walking. Turning to look behind, you see the path
you will never travel again."

I dunno, it seems relevant to a few people at the moment. Especially the bit about making your path by walking it.
