On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    Well today I actually said, "There's many a slip twixt cup and lip."

    It means that even when something seems certain, things can still go wrong.

    A good one for me today as I discover that Bootstrap now uses col instead of span.

    Colour me confused.

    (It basically means the change confused me to start with, because nothing worked on my old template. Grrr!)

    Don't do things too quickly, or it will take you longer in the end!
