It's too hot for deeply philosophical thoughts but a fellow Lion recently sent me the following information which some might find amusing... or sad... or something.  I have done nothing whatsoever to verify the truth of the assertions (but the veracity would not surprise me).

The Lord's prayer has 66 words.
The Ten Commandments have 179.
The Gettysburg address, 286.
The US Declaration of Independence runs to 1,300 words
while the US Constitution, with all 27 amendments, needs 7.818.

The European Union regulations on the sale of cabbages - 26,911 words.


 In this hot weather, Fern prefers her walks to be under the shade of the trees in Stanmer Woods rather than across the open fields.
