    Eating will be a bit thin this month for me and the family

    I like broccoli; brussels sprouts, not so much.
    Your mentioning the fiscal cliff reminded me of another Cliff -- Cliff Clavin from the Cheers television show. We could use his wisdom in Washington now. My favorite Cliffism is Cliff Clavin's Theory of Beer:
    "A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, the slow and weak at the back are killed first. The speed and health of the herd keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

    "In the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as its slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. Naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

    "In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
    Oh, did I get off subject?
