This time of the year this song always runs through my mind:

(It has/had a political meaning for residents of the UK, but I take it at face value.)
Surprisingly, when I was going through the phonebook while visiting my sister in college, it turns out there actually IS a Chinese restaurant called Lee Ho Fuk's in Philadelphia (or was, we're talking about twenty years ago).

I just thought that you might enjoy seeing a picture of Joni Mitchell & Carole King, 1973.

@flowerbug, think about visiting an Asian market. I will recommend methyl salicylate from Wintergreen. Salonpas (from Japan) might do the job for you but I would go with an oil and personally prefer Hysan. Rub the oil on but stop rubbing just as soon as you feel some heat. Don't take the rubbing too far ;).

i love libraries and have spent a signifcant fraction of my life in them. i have also helped as a kid in setting up two new libraries (one for the township and one for a church) and then after they were set up since Mom was a volunteer or worked there in each of them i also spent a lot of time just sitting on the floor and reading through whichever books i could get at. many i may not have had a clue even what i was reading but the pictures were often interesting or helpful and then i could figure things out from context after that...
