I try to realize the principle that opinions should derive from the analysis of demonstrable information, and should evolve if the information changes.

The Eleventh Month
November - that should mean the ninth month.
Today is a nicely palindromic date: 01-11-10 in DD-MM-YY format. Enjoy it while it lasts - it will be a century before it happens again.
Today is bright, autumn golds brilliant in the low sun. But this will prove exceptional. You will not be disappointed if you expect November in England to be as Thomas Hood described so memorably.
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!
