Just Finished Hiaasen’s new Book “No Surrender”

Skink--No SurrenderSkink–No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished Hiaasen’s latest book as soon as it became available at my local libranry. I felt like it was the best thing that he has written, and I have read all of the adult novels that he has written, and am considering reading the juvenile series. Very Good.

Testimony of Ben Stroman

It is traditional at our church for one of the Elders or one of the members to give their testimony on the Sunday after Easter. There were many services over the week preceding Easter and it gives our Rector a week without preparing a sermon. This Year, Father Paul asked me to do it, and it is really a tribute to my Parents.

Utah Phillips

Yesterday, May 15 was the birthday of folk singer and activist Utah Phillips, born in Cleveland, Ohio (1935). utah_phillips

He said: “I have a good friend in the East, who comes to my shows and says, you sing a lot about the past, you can’t live in the past, you know. I say to him, I can go outside and pick up a rock that’s older than the oldest song you know, and bring it back in here and drop it on your foot. Now the past didn’t go anywhere, did it? It’s right here, right now. I always thought that anybody who told me I couldn’t live in the past was trying to get me to forget something that if I remembered it it would get them serious trouble.”

William Blake Poem

The Smile by William Blake from The Writer’s Almanac May 10, 2011. william_blake

There is a smile of love,
And there is a smile of deceit;
And there is a smile of smiles,
In which these two smiles meet.

(And there is a frown of hate,
And there is a frown of disdain;
And there is a frown of frowns
Which you strive to forget in vain, (Continued on The Writer’s Almanac, May 10 2011)

Today’s Poem from Writer’s Almanac

garrison_keiller
She was poor but she was honest,
Victim of a rich man’s whim,
First he loved her, then he left her,
And she lost her honest name.

Then she ran away to London,
For to hide her grief and shame;
There she met another squire,
And she lost her name again. Continue reading Today’s Poem from Writer’s Almanac

John Stuart Mill

“If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.” John Stuart Mill (books by this author) born in Pentonville, London (1806).

Ode to Chocolate

Marvelous Poem on Writer’s Almanac today was “Ode to Chocolate” – The perfect poem for My Dear Wife, a Chocolate Lover

by Barbara Crooker

I hate milk chocolate, don’t want clouds
of cream diluting the dark night sky,
don’t want pralines or raisins, rubble
in this smooth plateau. I like my coffee
black, my beer from Germany, wine
from Burgundy, the darker, the better.
