Desert Dessert

Every once in a while throughout my lifetime I have run across a couple of people playing a game to pass time, or to gamble, or for an alternative method of choosing rather than rolling dice. The official name of the Asian-origin game is Roshambo, but mostly it is known as Rock-Paper-Scissors. When... Sign in to see full entry.

Age Of Rocks?

"There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it's like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges." ~ Ernest Hemingway After eight and a half years of Blogit, for me, and having fun writing, and trying to write, it seems nothing comes easily anymore;...

No, Not Maggot Therapy

All the time that Grandson Peter was in high school, all he talked about was becoming a meteorologist. He read everything he could get his hands on, watched all educational programs on TV regarding that subject, talked about it incessantly, even wanted to chase tornadoes. His grandpa gave him a...

According to the new ranking just out, Missouri is the 11 th fattest state in the country and is expected to be #9 in only two... Sign in to see full entry.

Am I The Eccentric Relative Of Someone?

I must apologize to Annicita. When she said, "Never heard of the show", I said, "It is not a show." Well, I had totally forgotten that it had been made into a movie until Kabu reminded me. Drew Barrymore did a great job of playing the part of Little Edie Beale who along with Big Edie Beale were the... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Not Sam's Fault

Bark, Not Meow

"Aha! One of my humanities classes from college is finally paying off and I just have to chuckle because the weirdest things stay with me! He was indicted for stealing, twice!

Art Who?

There once was a sculptor named Phidias Whose manners in art were invidious: He carved Aphrodite Without any nightie, Which startled the ultra-fastidious. We will get back to the invidious accusation of Phidias in a minute, but first I would like to tell you about Trivia #4 from yesterday's post.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Shame Of It All!

Self-proclaimed wiki-addict, adnohr, was onto Mozart (last post) like Swiss on rye, just as Mozart so long ago was a tiny tot glued to the keyboard doing piano finger exercises. Like my mother always told me, "Practice makes perfect," and that's what it takes in life--repetition or Fuggedaboutit! I... Sign in to see full entry.
