And lo, the eagle soard
to bring us to 650 score
Or as the moderns say,
Brought us to 13 K.
And from that height, the sparrow,
In imitation of a fearsome arrow,
His heart all filled with fun,
Has brought 13.1.

Songs Learned at Mother's Garter
Young Freud and Rubicon, Vienna, 1911

While your at it, squeeze yourself, from me, too..
Sorry for your sorrow.

May all of your neighborhoods remain free of fire and may all your pets rest undisturbed this evening! (July 4 and October 31--both hard on owners of dogs and cats!)

But maybe Rapaire can shoot some big sparkly pyrotechnics over that big grassy area behind his house. No one else should be using it after dark, right?

There will be fireworks at the Fairgrounds, easily visible from my back porch. Unfortunately (in more ways that one) I won't be there to see them.

Ah well. I will "do" the Glorious Fourth when I get home on Sunday. Yessir, I got me one of these bad boys!! Should make a really nice display.

You'd better invite the boys from the Legion over and have a keg handy or you'll never hear the end of it. Librarian or not.

Keg of what? Blasting powder? Nails? Root beer? Or...well, it certainly wouldn't be whiskey because everyone knows that the Legion is renowned as a leader in the Temperance Movement. One of its mottoes is "Down With The Liquor!" Another is "Away With Rum!" Another is "Throw Away The Corks!" After all, on the periodic fishing trips north to Alberta they drink Canada dry.

I was thinking beer, but if they want to try drinking a keg of nails that is up to them. That would be a new spin on a non-alcohol drink. Too bad the name Sharp's is already taken!

A keg of spikes--brings to mind the wooden kegs that used to be along the railroad track at our remote lake cabin when I was a child. The rail started with the coal mining and logging in the area and became a regularly used trunk line for many years. We parked beside the road and walked down a path, across the railroad tracks, and into our back gate to the cabin on Lake Whatcom. As children we used to play around the tracks (only two trains in the morning and two in the evening, as I recall, so it was pretty safe). We'd pick up old spikes and take a barrel or two home if they weren't picked up after track work.

So, naming a beverage keg "Spike" might be a great blast from the past, but I'm afraid that consuming any of it would leave me fit to be tied.

Next. . .

Lines On A Piss Poor Poet


Worthy of McGonegal, I declare;
How strange to find his talent rare
And long thought happily, finally, dead,
Raising again its cheerful head
To haunt a later, different time
With equal awkwardness of rhyme
And stilted pace; enough, enough!
The world's well-gifted with such stuff.
But let it be, to each man's choosing
To read what he finds most amusing.
And let us also add, I wot,
To not read what amuseth not.

Claracile Fortinez.
Alabaster Poems
Whiteshell-On-Thunk, 1938

How strange the night, oh wan the hour,
That sees no bloom or bursting flower
Here on the thread, which 'til this day
Was ever thrown aloft, in play;
And now, like some betrayed companion
SInks to the lowest Mudcat canyon,
And waves the clouds and sly farewell,
As Mom approaches Drop Off Hell.
Oh, no! Good friends, let i'ne'er be so!
Your hearts and minds to Mother show,
And turn your wits to work, and then,
Loving and laughing raise her up again.

Why do you suppose that is so? Is it because they do nothing, only gathering the traces of others' actions in the world, thus making them safely neutral, if not neutered, on the great stage of life?

From PhysOrg:



Scientists have discovered something new about exotic particles called solitons. Since the 1980s, scientists have known that solitons can carry an electrical charge when traveling through certain organic polymers. A new study now suggests that solitons have intricate internal structures.

Scientists may one day use this information to put the particles to work in molecular electronics and artificial muscles, said Ju Li, assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Ohio State University.

Li explained that each soliton is made up of an electron surrounded by other particles called phonons. Just as a photon is a particle of light energy, a phonon is a particle of vibrational energy.

The new study suggests that the electron inside a soliton can attain different energy states, just like the electron in a hydrogen atom.

"While we know that such internal electronic structures exist in all atoms, this is the first time anyone has shown that such structures exist in a soliton," Li said.

The soliton's quantum mechanical properties -- including these newly discovered energy states -- are important because they affect how the particle carries a charge through organic materials such as conducting polymers at the molecular level.

"These extra electronic states will have an effect -- we just don't know right now if it will be for better or worse," he said.

Li and his longtime collaborators from MIT published their findings in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Hah! You left out "potters"! The only time you'll hear "potter" and "responsible" used in the same sentence is in something like, "The potter was responsible for the building burning down." But what do you expect? Nobody who makes his living playing in mud and then playing with fire is going to get a lot of respect.

I have found a solution. When people ask you what's going on, you claim ignorance, and wonder out loud how you ended in charge of X. This works wonderfully in slowing down the flow of more things to do. I still somehow seem to have been deemed responsible, despite my best efforts...

You can dance, or play the fiddle
Talk in tongues or make up riddles
Do anything you really wish to do,
But don't, don't, don't
Don't let Mom fall down below the middle.
'Cuz you will sure regret it if you do!

You can fly or drive, or keep on thumbing
Sing or play, or stand around humming
Play the banjo harpor play the blues.
But don't, don't, don't
Don't let Mom fall down below the middle
'Cuz if you do, we're comin' after you

    Tell the doctor you hear voices
    Tell your gal you're out of choices
    Leave your home and look for something new.
    But when you talk about our Mummy
    Buster, don't start to act funny!
    We're got only one good word for you:

Straddle the fencepost, sleep on the griddle
Break old headlights, holler "Kadiddle"
But don't, don't, don't
Don't let Mom fall down below the middle
'Cuz if you do, you'll surely come to rue,
An' we're gonna come and getcha if you do.

BTW, At some point, a generally numptish gentlemen made a fortune by selling coal to Newcastle. It arrived in the middle of a miners strike. He also sold Fur gloves, coats etc to the Carribian at an enormus profit. Total numpty, but very lucky....

I have regained the feeling in my feet, and so have started on the beer to remove this feeling. Having a keg at home is a bad idea, they should be saved for the BBQ and such like...
