It's not liking me today...I just posted the story of Pig Latin, Ol' Ole, Sandeye, and the Tagalog language and it didn't take!

Well, I didn't find a picture of a hog I liked, but I did run across an ad for "Sleezer Genetics." They impregnate sows. I didn't read any further than that.

Well, the evening was spent choosing things to stuff into bags and worrying about having forgotten which the things were I was trying not to forget. And pondering questions like "How cold is cold, given that we don't use the word much in these parts?"

Crack o'dawn flight to Baltimore, a city whose very names resonates with history and song. I put new strings on the Martin and left them tuned way down, put the Martin in the case with a pillow under its head, and put the case in a Clamshell traveling box suspended on dense foam joints. I put Fragile stickers all around the outside. I can only pray it arrives when and where I do, intact.

See ya'll Tueday, I reckon.

This twice now....

I posted that at about 8:30 a.m., EDT, October 13, 1971, I walked into the Burton Public Library and began a temporary job that lasted 12 years. Or 34, because it was my first professional job....

Have fun, Amos! I wish I were going also. I didn't know when the refinance closing was going to happen or I'd have been able to schedule a trip and maybe even pay for it! (Last week, with a few hours notice, is when it happened, with follow-up papers this week). Maybe next year.

We three -- Bunn, SRS, and myself -- will keep the home fires burning. We will rally 'round the flag. We will not be moved. We will remain. We shall remain.

We, the few, the proud...we few, we band of brothers (and a sister)...in years to come, when grandchildren crawl upon your knee and lisp, "What did you do at Getaway 2005, ya old fart?" we will be able to say, "We cared for Mother."

And those little tykes will pause and a tear will form in their eye, and they will know of Us, the few who cared enough to remain the very best.

There are many people who attend Getaway for the listening, or so I have been told. That is how I would go, and I'd sing along under my breath when the occasion arises, but I wouldn't be up there playing an instrument and performing for others.

Mom has even been known to tap her foot and try a few fancy Scottish steps at shindigs like this.

If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.

Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.

This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.

He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'

Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.

This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition*:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

Well, yes, usually it's pretty rare on the macro scale. But it does happen. Just the other day the Halfmaster of the Legion, Ol' Ole, was seen by his wife in the company of Half Moon Hattie, one of the local filles de joie, up at the Legion Hovel. But when Mrs. Ol' Ole got home to git the skillet ready for Ol' Ole's head, there was Ol' Ole on the couch, red in the face and panting like a dog in August. She thought he'd seen her and run all the way home, only he said that he'd been shoveling snow or cutting grass and got all tuckered out and had just a few minutes ago come in to rest. Mrs. thought he couldn't be two places at the same time, but Ol' Ole explained to her all about quantum mechanics and the stuff we've been discussing here and she allowed that yes, maybe he could have been in both places at the same time

But she clobbered him anyway, because quantum physics or not he shouldn't have been with Half Moon Hattie. She said that if he was going to be in two places at once, the other one had better be church.

And Ol' Ole said that when that skillet connected it felt like it passed clear through his body down to his toes, only it didn't leave any mark except on the top of his head.

So there you have it. Proof positive of bilocation AND passage through a solid object (and there are danged fewer objection solider than Ol' Ole's headbone).

It was a proper autumn day today. Beautiful, crisp air, amd a sunset that turned the hil orange. Shame it won't last.

Also, you do not wear a sporran whilst Highland dancing. Well, you can, but are unlikely to be able to dance for very long. As for my tartan, it's somewhat purlply, but not lavender.href="http://www.clanlindsay.com/lindsay_modern.htm">My tartan

Put cans of preseasoned, chopped up tomatoes in a pot (how much of any depends upon the number to feed). Add whatever veggies you might have -- bits of carrots, onions, garlic, cut-up broccoli stems, corn (whole kernel, canned or frozen or fresh), bits of potatoes, whatever. Add sliced linguica sausage if you can, or a mildly spicy anything sausage if you can't (use the kind of sausage in casing, or fry up bulk). Add some pearl barley and let everything kind of cook together for a couple hours (add more liquid if necessary, but keep it covered). Add some sweet paprika if you didn't have linguica, correct the other seasonings, and search with toasted sourdough bread slathered in good butter.

What you you be searching for, with your loaf of bread? A spoon?

Sounds like a great recipe.

Right now I'm working on a sort of goulash of my own. I'm defragging a very old laptop, and the screen image of the drive is a mess to behold. This one is being retired from online use. I tried updating the Symantec in the poor thing last night and it nearly ground to a halt under the ponderous program. I uninstalled it this morning and the little machine (about 10 years old) breathed a huge sigh of relief.

It is going the way of the "Old Typewriter," my wonderful reliable little Olivetti that I worked my way through college with. It became a kids toy and I think they finally did it in. My Dad's old 66hz laptop has actually been the favorite of the kids because they use it in their rooms for solitaire and for Word documents (their "big" computer is in the living room). His is great for both of those things and it starts relatively fast because there isn't much else on it any more. Now the Acer will go into a kids' room for solitaire and Word documents. It's a 133hz computer, fast in its day, but a relic now. It was my emergency backup computer. Now we have five computers in the house (my Dad's old Amiga is here also, never been out of the box since I got it out of storage a couple of years ago). My "big" computer is okay using the dialup or the DSL, so if DSL dies, we'll just plug in a phone line. I guess it will be its own backup.

I wonder how it's going for the Getaway folks? Is Amos singing his heart out, or getting himself into trouble as the sole representative of the Golden Globe society?

Oddly enough, my brother just called asking if the 1997-era laptop I sold him had a USB port. I told him he was lucky it had a hard drive.

133 Mhz Hitachi, with Win95 and an external CD drive. He wanted to run the pix from a trail camera on it, so he could just take the computer to the camera (it's for photographing deer for deer season, so far he's only got a picture of his friend Niles bailing hay). I suggested he get a 3-way Dazzle drive and a second SD card for the camera and bring the pix home to his "big" computer.

He liked that idea.

This morning I stumbled upon an interesting essay that I've been dipping into all day when I have a few minutes. Here's a brief excerpt and a link:

The paper is called Raymond carver's "epiphanic moments"

    1. Carver and the Realist Epiphany

    Carver's interest in the rhetoric of the sudden illumination is well-known. In his autobiographical sketch "On Writing," he emphasized his indebtedness to a line from a story by Chekhov he reportedly liked so much that he pinned it on the wall beside his writing desk: it reads, "'... and suddenly everything became clear to him."' Carver was intrigued, he said, by the "hint of revelation that's implied" (Fires 23). If the notion of a "hint of revelation" is understood in the romanticist or modernist terms on which recent aesthetics (Beja, Langbaum, Nichols), phenomenologies (Bidney, Patterns), and typologies (Tigges) of literary epiphany tend to focus, it refers to the charging of external reality with a sense of transcendental significance that, on the one hand, makes a text's narrative agent see matters in a radically new light, but that, on the other, cannot be translated into a logical proposition or concept. This "revelation," then, remains at the level of a non-semantic sense of the "whatness of things" and at best branches into multiple meanings.


I think this has practical applications here at the MOAB.
