From Soup to (the Usual) Nuts

A snow-covered woodpile. Are you getting any of the White Stuff? Then you must be in the northern hemisphere. Willem's hot where he is. I wish I were. Brr. It dropped 30 degrees (Fahrenheit) in our town one day last week, and the wind blew like blue murder. Now we've got a 'blanket' of snow. Phooey. It's that time of year in the Northern Temperate. Hope it's better where you are.

Rain, wind, snow, or sweltering heat, however, there's one thing we all have in common: good reading. Here at the Post, we gotz it. You're going to enjoy this week's issue.

Willem's got a froggie. See it courting your eye down the page? Read about it. And yeah, we've got cute kitties. (Comment by Milla: Aren't cats the basis of the internet, anyway?) Remember: if you don't want to see so many cats, send us your captionable photos. I mean, there must be something else going on out there…

Bluebottle, h2g2's resident motivational speaker, is here from the far-famed Isle of Wight to tell you what's been rescued from the Flea Market last year, what's still to come, and why you should be helping them out over there. Pay heed.

We've got old jokes and new ones. We've got funny pictures. We've got poems that will make you chuckle, and think, too. We've even got some instructions on how to think, just in case you wanted a refresher course.

Read, enjoy, leave snark at the bottom of the pages. Button up your overcoats, take your vitamins, and don't catch cold. And remember to write! Have a great week!

Sad News: h2g2ers have been saddened to learn of the death of David Bowie. Bluebottle has kindly sent us a tribute (see below), and Awix has dedicated his column to a past performance. Others wishing to express their thoughts on the loss of this artist should feel free to send them in.

It never rains but it pours. We've also lost Alan Rickman, who was a fine actor. By Grabthar's Hammer, we will miss him. Tributes have appeared in a forum here – if you have something special to say, please send it to the Post.
