"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    What kind of bar is it? this is a kind of request I had never heard. ;)

    A bar is where drinks (usually alcoholic) are served @Bubbly. So in general, this is not a place to bring children.

    I haven't met any solicitors in Thailand yet.
