Mistress certainly had a sobering, disturbing day Sunday, touring Auschwitz on what, coincidentally is Holocaust Remembrance Day. She has done lots of reading on the subject, but, as she told me this evening, all the study and research in the world can not adequately prepare one for standing in the midst of those killing fields. Wish I was there to cuddle close tonight.
Some say the horror of those years was the product of some perverse accident of history, or a specific nation's proclivity for evil. But what troubles me is that something about the human condition made that coldly efficient form of genocide all too real. Who's to say it could not happen again, even closer to home?

And since I have little to titillate you with today, it’s fortunate that our Director of Security, International stepped up to the plate.
As you might imagine, Bill is a man who shoots first, and asks questions later, usually directed at the Coroner. So it’s not surprising that his contribution is short on words, and long on imagery.
There are times in life when we’d all like to have a simple plain message, no subtle intonations or double meanings. Below find a few I like that are simple straight forward with no quibbling on there meaning-
Of course if that is more message than you want try this one-
Then you might get back –
I like this message and the one that follows-
Another style that works very well is-
And finally this warning sign should be seen whenever I'm around-
