Nature - Red in Tooth And Claw:

Written by Alfred Lord Tennyson in 1849 (when they did a lot of history) - the poetry line

"Nature, red in tooth and claw" 
was adopted by others as a phrase that evokes the process of natural selection.. - Certainly by some aggressive violent process wherein the winner takes all.

Interestingly at both ends of life
we seem disarmed and toothless.

- But throughout the middle period .. we demonstrate the armed aggression that gained us supremacy over all of the animal world and helped us feed and defend our dependents.

- Now we need to learn to start looking after what we have before it's too late eh - by exercising control.

Life is good,

Enjoy your Christmas dinner - Drive carefully,
