Quote of the day 11th December 2017

A quote which seems rather apposite today from George R. R. Martin's book "Game of Thrones" and the rest of the "Song of Ice and Fire" books (and the TV series "Game of Thrones" based on them)


And a commentary which fits today's weather ...


(For anyone who hasn't read any of the "Song of Ice and Fire" books or seen any of the "Game of Thrones" TV episodes, "Winter is Coming" is the motto of one of the noble houses who are protagonists in the power struggles in the story, House Stark. It refers to more than just seasonal bad weather. Jon Snow, portrayed by Kit Harington and photoshopped in the upper picture to wield a shovel, is an illegitimate scion of House Stark who finds himself in the front line of defence against what is meant by "Winter." The lower picture is Lord Ned Stark, played by Sean Bean, who was one of the few people to take the warning in his House motto seriously ...)
