Lovely spring days last week. Today? Snow and ice pellets. Need something cheery. For some reason I can’t quite put my finger on, the image above by art director Marc Shur, aka Shakes The Clown, does the trick. Must be the bright colors.

And that is something you would certainly never suspect from your relationship with a pork chop.”
