I need an apron for woodworking, to keep the chips and shavings off my lap. Out of curiosity, I went to Ebay and here I found:
Lot Of 3 Black Aprons... All Reversible One Brand-New And A Cumber Bun
nothing like a good Cumber Bun on a winter’s day.
From an American seller, mind you.

羊年吉祥,廣結善緣,普締美義。Happy New Year. It’s the year of the goat, a great year to realize your dreams. Don’t be sheepish, but don’t ram your ideas down other people’s throats. Be good, don’t kid around, don’t do anything baaaaaa-d. Dare to break away from the flock. If you have to butt into a line, be sure you’re not following a bellwether. Don’t let anybody pull the wool over your eyes, and don’t get fleeced. This is the year to be as great as ewe can!

溫度上升,小鄰居出來辦年貨。The temperature warmed to 17c, so the neighbors came out for a snack.

A woman of mixed Nigerian + German blood went into a library in Hamburg containing 350,000 books. She found herself drawn to one book, so she took it down from the shelf and changed her life. She discovered that her biological mother was the illegitimate daughter of Amon Goeth, the commandant of a Nazi concentration camp noted as the “Butcher of Ploszaw.” He was noted for shooting prisoners from the porch of his house every morning. LINK
Jeeeezzzz…. I’m at a loss for a comment to wind this up.

The ISIS has decapitated two Japanese citizens. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has told the terrorists “we will never, never forgive them for this act.” LINK
Now that would be interesting if this spurred Japan into going after the ISIS. They are pretty experienced themselves in chopping off people’s heads.
