That time of the year has come round again, when yellow leaves, or none orFall leaves, white chair, rain few, do hang upon the boughs which shake against the cold.  And in a lot of the country just now we’ve had a lot of rain. And when it wasn’t raining, the sky was heavy with clouds as gray as slate.  This is weather in which to listen to Leonard Cohen sing one of his near suicidal songs. Or maybe just stay in bed. Well, the leaves are pretty this time of year. That’s something.
