Necessity, the Mother of Invention

Ignorance, the Mistress of Re-Invention



Happy Lunar New Year


Wishing you all a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous Year of the Horse



  1. Mmm. This stimulates interesting thoughts, Eric. In a few words, you’ve said so many. My favorite: “Ignorance — the mistress of re-invention.”

    1. Hello Uzo,

      Mankind knows all the pitfalls – individuals have their life time experiences. It’s one thing for a young person to want to do his/her own thing, but we continue to encounter people who ought to know better, commit the same errors.


  2. Funny you should mention fillings in your reply to me. I just had two root canals done at my dentist’s office. Very psychic of you.

  3. Happy New Year, Eric. Have a successful year. Thanks for stopping by. The ad posted by Clark bars,,,,ugh. I think they’re spoiling your blog. WordPress should curtail that.

    1. Happy New Year and all the very best for the Year of the Horse 🙂

      The ads vary depending on the country – I don’t get to see what you do, Pat.

      All good wishes,

  4. Someone told me I was born under the sign of the Fortune Cookie. That’s why I do the Horror-scopes.Hope you are having a good year so far.

    1. Happy New Year and may all good things shower upon you and your loved ones 🙂

      You did alright with the ‘liberties’ you took – and not far out, if I might add, Eva dear. The quote also lends itself to silly people who leave their loved ones, hoping to find greener pastures. Worse are those who set out to ‘steal’ another’s love.

      Luv and blessings,

    1. Hello Val dear,

      Fool is a man who treasures not what he has and grasps at illusions. Phoenix, you definitely are, my friend.

      In Singapore we are coy about using the words ‘cock’ or ‘chicken’ for obvious reasons. That zodiac sign is referred to as “Year of the Rooster”.

      Have a week filled with gentle and soothing breeze,

  5. Happy New Year of the Horse, Eric. So much truth in your words — “ignorance, the mistress of reinvention”. Interesting choice of words. “Mistress” instead of “Mother”. What a slippery slope Ignorance offers, that only leads to illegitimate endeavors! Thanks for the wisdom of your words. Peace, Dee
