Happy New Year's Day

And god, it is the eighth day of maids, but please, no jokes about David Pinner's 1967 novel The Ritual, filmed as The Wicker Man (1973).

That was a horror genre aficionado's in-joke, of which there are many in this pod because I've been around for a long, time, etc., and there's another too. And no, that did not break the copyright of a few dessicated old mummies. Look up the lyrics.

Other than that, again no news but to wish you all a very happy New Year.

Day Eight

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five gold rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
