Weather Reportage

We Rhinos live where it does not Snow, virtually ever. However, We do like to hear about it, and imagine it. We see ourselves involved in its many mysteries and conjurations. A good time, and economical, as good times go.

Of course, our ancestors, Wooly Rhinos & Friends, used to tromp around in snow and frost, etc., but things were much cooler Long Ago. Don’t ask why. We don’t know.

Rhino Blizzard Prep is all speculative, at least in the Wild, but trust Us: if and when that first flake lands, Rhinos will be all over it!

Sweets to the Sweet

Brownies are legendary Household Helpers, scurrying around when Homeowners are asleep. But be careful; Brownies are temperamental, they say.

Today is National Brownie Day, but it turns out that the Brownies in question today are Confections. ¬†Nobody seems quite sure who invented these chocolatey baked goods. (That’s what research is for, to investigate phenomena.)

We Rhinos are pro-Brownies, any way you like it. With or without nuts.

Musical Ramblings

Alexander Borodin (b. November 12 (!), 1833)  was a remarkable Russian composer. His single opera, Prince Igor, features a ballet called the Polovtsian Dances. It celebrates a nomadic people who lived near the Black Sea in the 11th century.

Rhinos always assumed these folk were pretty exciting, though We were no longer living in that neighborhood when they were in residence. Hearsay.

Music makes Us Rhinos wiggle.

 

Courtesy under siege

Rhinos celebrate the birthday of Ms. Judith Martin, better known as Miss Manners. She’s a modern writer, doing what she can to instill Civility, Kindness and Consideration in her readers. Needless to say, hers is a Daunting Task.

Issues of Social Grace have always mesmerized Us Rhinos. Miss Manners gives advice laced with wit and insight and does not suffer fools gladly.

Our kind of gal. If ‘Your Inner Rhino‘ gave awards, she’d get one, no question.

And here We are…

Rhinos are impressed with how often Adventures commence on Mondays. There are other days, but if it’s a new set of Experiences, Monday is the most likely start time.

We admit, We are seldom sure what day it is, but if its suspect, Rhinos call it a Monday, and nobody argues with Us about it. Which proves something, or other.

We do want to point out that Adventures are not necessarily Bad Things. They just involve a lack of Control, which is the norm anyway.
