Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Oh my... that looks cold.... Happy 2013, Beth!

19 degrees F. today and a bit windy -- not incredibly cold for here, but cold enough to be glad of all those layers! Happy 2013 to you, Maria!

You look well-dressed and warm for the occasion! Brr, makes me remember my growing up years in Winnipeg.

Happy New Year to you and J!

I love this! Your frozen north looks a lot like ours. :-)

And a Happy New Year to you. That is a warm coat.

Happy New Year to you too Beth. It's cold here in Boston. 9 degree this morning:((

Beth, after a long break, I am catching up with blog-reading only now. Thus, belated best wishes to you for the New Year.
