The Cottage on the Moor is a place where I'll keep a fire going on cold winter nights and a breeze flowing through the windows on steamy summer days. There will be a "cup of warm" waiting for you to stimulate your mind. I'll try to keep it fresh by adding something every week or two. So come often. I hope you find something you enjoy.

When You’re Up, I’m Down
by Jim Rapp
If the economy is sagging
And the Congress can’t decide,
And the bills are coming due,
It’s no time for petty haggling,
Something really must be tried,
And the “fix”, my friends, is nothing new.
When you’re on a tetter totter,
And your butt is on the ground,
There’s no pain-free way to get it up again.
You must allow your opposite more “fodder”,
Or try, yourself, to lose a pound;
Either way your rise will cause you pain.
