When to wear an overcoat

It's cold in the room I'm writing this blog post right now. I had a look on temperature outside and it's freezing, just a bit.


I am cold, and I have a cold. It reminds me of my mum that used to warn us not to have your coat on going in and out of the house. This weekend I moved my daughters stuff over to her house. She is living there since Sunday now. And yes, I do miss her. But in moving her stuff we walked a lot in and out of her house of course.
I have this book called "Principles of Public Health" by Thos. D. Tuttle. It was published in 1910, four years before the great war started. It's a very nice book because it explains the most essential now common sense things about hygiene and staying healthy. It's on Gutenberg as well. Here is what inspired my mum used to say to us:



In cold weather the same amount of clothing should not be worn in the house and outdoors; for this reason, we have overcoats. If you wear your overcoat in the house, you will become over warm and your underclothing will then become damp with perspiration; when you go outdoors into the cold air, this dampness will have just the same effect as would dampness that comes from outside.

As soon as the weather gets cold, put on your overcoat every time you go outdoors, and take it off as soon as you come into the house. This is troublesome for boys and girls to do, because they want to run in and out of the house so often; but on the other hand, think of all the cells you will kill if you do not do this, and you will certainly consider it worth while to take off your coat and put it on again.

Womens right to vote

It seemed appropriate to me to put this post on the blog on Inauguration Day.
The inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States will mark the commencement of the four-year term of Donald Trump as President and Mike Pence as Vice President.

The inauguration theme is "Uniquely American", a phrase that highlights the inaugural ceremony as "a uniquely American expression of our Constitutional system." The theme also stresses the peaceful transition of power, and that the American people are "united behind an enduring republic."[1] The inaugural ceremonies held in Washington, D.C. from January 17 to 21, 2017 will include concerts, the swearing-in ceremony, luncheon and parade, inaugural balls, and the interfaith inaugural prayer service. The presidential oath will be administered to Trump during his swearing-in ceremony on January 20, 2017 by Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts and the vice presidential oath of office will be administered to Pence by Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.

And if you are a dedicated Trump fan or Trump hater the people of the United States of America have voted en masse for Mr. Trump. And that is how a democracy functions, the majority of the voters decide who is going to be, in this case the President of the US of A.

 It is interesting that exactly 100 years ago women needed to parade in New York City in 1917, carrying placards with signatures of more than a million women that demanded a right to vote.


It took in America until 1920 women got their legal right to vote nationally. In 1916 Alice Paul formed the National Woman's Party (NWP), a militant group focused on the passage of a national suffrage amendment. Over 200 NWP supporters, the Silent Sentinels, were arrested in 1917 while picketing the White House, some of whom went on hunger strike and endured forced feeding after being sent to prison. Under the leadership of Carrie Chapman Catt, the two-million-member NAWSA also made a national suffrage amendment its top priority. After a hard-fought series of votes in the U.S. Congress and in state legislatures, the Nineteenth Amendment became part of the U.S. Constitution on August 26, 1920. It states, "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."

These women were called suffragists and there was quite a hate campaign against them. Look at these:
Suffragists consists of only ugly women

Suffragists are women that cannot get a husband, and therefore are militant

Suffragists are disappointed in love and therefore wanting to right to vote

Suffragists hate men

Who said anything about dirty campaigning of this President election? The right for women to vote was a tough battle with heated arguments on both sides. It seems so long ago, but it's really isn't 100 years old. And the women of America have now chosen this President. If you agree with their choice or not, it's their choice and it's not a matter of course that they have earned that very right.

At my feet

Some days I just want to find you in the evening at my feet. Holding me as you will find strength flowing from holding my leg into your heart. Some days I need you here at my feet with your head finding comfort against my leg. Some days I want you close to me. We don't need to see each other in the eyes, we don't need to talk, just lean on me.

This is one of those days.

In the arms of an angel

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it ok
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
They may be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of an Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Seen one, seen them all

Oh, I have posted quite few of pictures like this. I know.
But it has so much attraction to me. It's not very much Wanita play, it's more a fantasy that one day might be fulfilled. I'm a dreamer. I love the look on her face and his "study"of the newspaper, and we both know that he's not reading one word.

Underrated Dominant Phrases

To be dominant means not being able to care. As I posted before I have more with the gentle approach than the brutal one. I'm not into humiliation or the power shift in the marriage. I'm more into the loving submission...
“Have you eaten?”
“Drive carefully.”
“Good morning, beautiful.”
“What did you have for lunch today?”
“Sleep well.”
“I’m proud of you.”
“Are you feeling better?”
“Take a sweater, it’s cold out.”
“Be safe.”

Shoe fetish

Some people have a thing with shoes. They make their sub lick their shoes.

That is fine if you both like it, but I simply don't. I don't get a kick out of humiliating someone, and it really doesn't make me feel. And she gets nothing out of it except a dirty tongue (and she already has one, oh God I'm so predictable). No.

It's not my thing. Licking your bare feet (if they are clean) sometimes feels nice, but no.
I'd rather use her tongue for something else.

What the world needs is a return to sweetness and decency

Roman Holiday from 1953. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. My mum used to have a crush on mr. Peck. And after 64 years the world still needs is a return to sweetness and decency.
