The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Women's Self Defnese, Pre WWII Great Britain

One of the favorite videos of all time here at Cook Ding's Kitchen is a video clip depicting Women's Self Defense in 1947, starring Pat's redoubtable Aunt Mary.

Two other old women's self defense clips that are certainly deserving, but didn't make it to the all time list can be found here and here.

Well, we have a new... old one. Again from pre WWII Britain. Listen to the commentary, it's great.

I like the way she tosses her head after she tosses one of her attackers.

Enjoy.
