November!

We note in passing that while we would never dream of discussing a scientist's shirt, particularly when he had just landed a probe on a distant comet, Thomas Hood's sartorial elegance, purchased on a poet's income, might well inspire you.

Thanks to Sarah Hawkins for sending us a brief summary of recent weather.

No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds -
November!

Thomas Hood, 1799-1845
