"If you're short of trouble take a goat."
I'm back from the Grand Canyon, and very busy as I prepare to move to Alaska, about which I'll try to post a little more later. I've little time and less patience for the internet these days, but I did just run across a very amusing page of Finnish sayings. Folk wisdom from other cultures is usually pretty entertaining, and the more poorly translated the better, I say. How could you ever tire of pearls of advice such as this: "Other people slept, I was awake; the cat had all the baby's milk." Perhaps a Finnish speaker can inform me as to what's not coming through the language barrier.
