Somehow, the idea of John Gadbury that the weather has a variable air sounds lovely. Very temperate and maybe warm? It was a good description of the weather here today. Made for a nice walk.

I add my thanks to Mountebank and SD Sarah. Thank you Phil and Terry for all your work. This site is certainly a welcome distraction from the current plague. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

I was much struck by this bit of 400 year old wisdom: "...for no Parliament can, as he says, be kept long good, but they will spoil one another..." We see this there in UK and here in US. Charles certainly knew what he was talking about!

Noticed this "where I met Mr. Batelier with my wife, in order to our going to-morrow, by agreement, to Bow to see a dancing meeting. But, Lord! to see how soon I could conceive evil fears and thoughts concerning them;" So he's concerned about Mr B and Bess? Rather ironic after his shenanigans yesterday.

Happy birthday, Mr. Pepys! 33 is a good age and you've accomplished so much. We are lucky to have all his personal information and his perspective on the goings on in London. So thanks to Phil, too, for maintaining this site.

I am in sympathy with Sam...I have lacked company and the glut of mirth that I really wanted!

I have been reading the daily entries for months now and enjoying the annotations. I just never signed up to add my 2 cents! So today, I want to say Happy Holidays to all the annotators and especially to Phil for all his work here. It is appreciated, even if we don't say it.
