I think I've already shared with you my love of hippos - although my experiences are limited to the collectible ones, not the really wild ones that would never fit in my kitchen.
And I've also mentioned The Secret - Daily Teachings that a friend gave me earlier in the year.
Each day (if Fiona asks), or every other day when I remember, I read the short message, ponder for a while and then move on.
"If we live good lives, the times are also good. As we are, such are the times."
All good stuff. But who is credited with saying that?
Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430).
I know what you're thinking - but no, it's all true.
