"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

    I sent this to my dentist @Xanthippe. I'm sure he will find it amusing, as long as it doesn't give him ideas!
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭✭✭
    :) :) :) If so I would avoid him. ;)

    I think I can trust him @Xanthippe. He's the best dentist I've ever had even if I have to go to Kathmandu to see him. :#

    @mheredge I meant only in case he would like to apply the methods described in this article. ;)

    What do you think of the latest controversy over the effectiveness of flossing?
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge, oh I haven't heard of it. Is it not effective? Well, sometimes a piece of floss gets stuck between your teeth.

    It seems there's quite a few arguments saying flossing is a waste of time. Doesn't your dentist keep telling you to floss @Xanthippe? Mine does.

    @mheredge, he doesn't but I do it anyway. :) I do everything to avoid him (although he is very good). It is just expensive. :)

    I had a really bad toothache when I was a child. So, I had one thing in common with Tom Sawyer. LOL
