Listening to Lord of the Rings...

The disc in the player is the first in the series of three: Howard Shore's music for the film trilogy of LORD OF THE RINGS. The others will follow. As many of you know from my poetry posted here and there, and a collection available in my listings for sale, I am a Middle-earth ex-patriot. Part of me... Sign in to see full entry.

Tying one on...

I just read one of Strat's posts ( http://www.blogit.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/strat/ July 10) regarding the proper way to wear polo shirts, in which he mentioned the problem of being color-blind and choosing which tie to wear. This reminded me of something I discovered a few years ago when I had a... Sign in to see full entry.

What have your kids been saying?

My 5-year old granddaughter has always had something to say... We take notes. In Angkor Wat, a man took pictures of Zoe and family, and when they emerged from the temples and got on the bus, there were a gang of kids waving plates that had the photos on them.

Writing on Blogit: Critique and Respecting Creative Space

There are a lot more strokes offered than actual critique, which makes it encouraging to write,... Sign in to see full entry.

Being good enough

There are so many great dog trainers! There's the Whisperer, Cesar Milan, and Victoria Stillwell, the dog dominatrix who probably leaves some of the humans wishing she would give them bits of chicken, too... There is Patricial McConell, the animal behaviorist who's book THE OTHER END OF THE LEASH I... Sign in to see full entry.

Responding to Kaboom

Kaboom has written a couple of very moving posts in her blog regarding the anniversaries of the nuclear bombing of Japan. http://www.blogit.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/KaBooMuses/ My father was in the Pacific in WWII and was just weeks away from being part of the second wave of American soldiers onto the...

The difference between humans and animals...

It used to be easy: Man is more than an animal because he makes and uses tools; uses language; makes war on and hunts his own kind; reasons and remembers; laughs; loves; is motivated by altruism...
