  1. Make kitchen of the butter.
    Wet your whistle.
    Tis an ill wind do not blow fair for some one.
    You will never miss the water till the well runs dry.
    If you want to know me come live with me.
    Beauty never boils the pot.
    What the old cock crows the young cook learns.
    Youth must have it fling.
    A rolling stone gathers no moss.
    Too many cooks spoil the broth.
    A tight gathering makes a wide scattering.
    A bad thing never dies.
    March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
    The best hurler is always on the ditch.
    Never judge a book by the cover.
    It never rains but it pours.
    Nature breaks out in the eyes of a cat.
