(Weapons are a subset of tools.  And, even though many tools can – at times – be used as weapons, it’s important that we practice good safety procedures when using our tools.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks, shall win my love.”   —   Washington Irving
