Splash du Jour: Thursday

I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside of me.
-- Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865). Reply to the Missouri Committee of Seventy, 30 Sept., 1864 –

Where is his like, today?
And more importantly, would anyone know enough, to elect him?

Have a great Thursday!

Thought you'd like to know today is Mr Saramago's birthday. You should celebrate accordingly.

Thank you for this reminder Isabella.
I cannot believe I forgot Jose's birthday.
I think he is 84 or 85 now?
All the best to you.
