Happy feast of St. George to all my dear readers, especially to those of you who are English! Below, I have included G. K.

All Praise to Thee my God this Night – Canon in eight parts
Six thirty and it’s pitch dark. Probably global warming.

Are there some few categories in which US law places every human or group of humans?

I’ve found that opening the cream cheese on just one side, along the designated seam, then scooping some out with a butter knife works well. Before discovering this new method I’d been pulling loose three sides and completely unwrapping the cheese.

Still, there may be issues with getting out the last bit toward the end of the package. I’ll keep you posted.
