⦿ Let’s Rub Noses Like the Eskimoses ~ Porky Pig 1939

‘Let’s Rub Noses Like the Eskimoses’

There’s a nice land known as Iceland, living there is swell,
That’s where those frozen people dwell.
One supposes rubbing noses saves them lots of heat
Boy, how they’re making both ends meet!

Oh, let’s rub noses like the Eskimoses,
That’s a northern custom turns winter into spring
Each polar guy’s a hero when it’s under zero
You can always trust them to do that certain thing

When the band is playing Nola at the Polar Ball
You won’t find a blue schnozola anywhere at all
Let’s rub noses like the Eskimoses
Don’t you know that’s Eskimo for “I love you”?

⦿The Ancient Lights Windows

  The ‘Ancient  Lights’  Windows of Englandancient-lights-windows

An intriguing phrase. . .
On many old brick buildings around London  are signs saying  ‘Ancient Lights‘  marked  beneath
individual windows. The phenomenon is not unique to London. The signs can be found in Dorset,
Kent, and other places across England.  What are they?
‘Ancient Lights’ or the ‘Right to Light’ is an English property law that gives house owners the right
to receive natural light from and through a window  if that particular window has been receiving
light uninterrupted for  20 years.
Once a person gains the right to ancient lights, an owner of the adjoining land cannot obscure them,
such as by erecting a building, raising a wall or planting trees.

⦿The Driving Lesson

Long, long ago when I was in high school, and  learning to drive ::: there was a certain Saturday when my boyfriend of the time was supposed to pick me up to go to the Renaissance Fair.. but after I’d taken a psychedelic substance in anticipation of the occasion, he phoned me to say we couldn’t go after all, because of car trouble.

So there I was, high at home.. and my dad said — ‘well then, a perfect opportunity for a driving lesson’.   A bit of panic !  Who  wants to go practice-driving with their dad when they’re high on LSD ? !  I tried begging off but he said  ‘GET IN THE CAR,  NOW!’     And so I went,  a relatively inexperienced new driver, trying to be ‘normal’ while high on acid, driving in the car with my dad. .  yikes ! 

 But surprizingly  it went ok –I pretty much kept my mouth shut and I didn’t drive up a tree or anything!  and by the way–on a stick-shift !    My dad never knew I was spaced out on acid that day. . .  so  now these many years later  it’s  a funny memory… now that my dad has passed on.

(for info :  I haven’t partaken in that substance for many, many years since then)

Yeah.. it was kinda like this  !

‘Nature always gets her way’. This is a series of photographs taken by  Tang Yuhong  of 
an overgrown abandoned fishing village in China, on Goqui Island in the Shengsi Islands,
near the mouth of the Yangtze River. The vegetation is the voraciously invasive kudzu, native to China.
