All my publications are available on Amazon, in print or Kindle e book form. Just google the titles and my name as on book covers and you can buy copies in either format, or as used books.

If you do, please write a review on Amazon.

If you have ever bought anything on Amazon (it need not be a book) you can review a (my) book or books.

Please do so.

Please read and support the reading habit in your children and grandchildren.

I do believe Mr T is supported by ill informed non-readers, by their own admission, and we should work against that by informing ourselves, even resisting and fighting (legally) some one who mongers hate, such as -- x y z T

Cheers

In rural Pennsylvania, T does his brand of white extreme nationalism, still followers chanting Build the Wall and Lock her up. SAD.

It seems they will follow anything orange.

Meanwhile T continues to call his opponents what he
is.

As in kettle calls the pot orange.

DISGUSTED.

But keep following the real news and keep exercising your rights.

They are under threat from this T guy and his minions daily.

Russian-Soviet writer--Mikhail Sholokov--

1965 Nobel Laureate in Literature--

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Sholokhov

I am reading his second book, The Don Flows to the Sea, which I bought for $2 in the Princeton Public Library on Nassau St, where I went with my friend.

It's more reasonable to read the more famous And Quiet Flows the Don first, but they can be read as free standing novels.

Here is the full ms. of And Quiet Flows the Don, but you should buy a book if you can.

On line you will have to read it sitting at a desk, which isn't the same at all as lying down and reading a novel in your own bed or on your own futon.

Also, the online transcript, maybe scanned, has quite a few errors and typos.

brilliantly written and acted, down to the hand gestures and calling Trevor, "Travis."

This is god help us time.

I can't even laugh due to coughing so much I have a stomach ache.

God bless all of you out there just trying to make an honest living and doing no harm.

  2. Of course, that's how the system is set up CHECKS & BALANCES, didn't you know Mr Sessions ??? See below.
  3. First Trump doesn't care N Korea can already hit Hawaii; now Sessions says it's just some "island in the Pacific."

I had not even heard of Congress Heights and had never been E of the Anacostia River.

Even going to the National Arboretum is iffy.

I know "all about gunfire on the streets" because I lived in West Philadelphia 13 years and people still get shot.

compares to JFK and Cuban missile crisis, where JFK INSISTED he and generals knew exactly where all ships were, so Cuba/Russia would not think an accidental placement was starting a war.

This is giraffe live birth at Dallas Zoo in 2015--baby later died when ran into wall and broke her neck

It looked like enclosure had too many hazards, after all giraffes live on grassy plains and are built to run.

Nice comment from Washington Post--copied and pasted --on April the Giraffe

been watching April because I find it strangely soothing. April doesn't know jack about politics, she has no opinion on military strikes in Syria and she doesn't give a lame rat's rear end about how many times Trump has golfed in Florida. She's affectionate with her handlers, she likes to play with Oliver, she adores carrots and begs for them like a golden retriever. She's been a bright spot in my day and when I woke to see her finally in labor - I watched for hours until the baby was on the ground, then on its feet and then, wobbling the whole way, found its way to breakfast. Welcome to the world, little giraffe! May you never know hunger, never be homeless, never be a refugee... may the only humans you ever meet treat you kindly and may you someday be a part of helping your species return to abundance in the lands you were made for. Maybe one day we'll care as much for each other as we've cared about you....

I'm thinking, since as it was being born it was pooped on, then fell 6ft to the ground and after it was born all the rest of the bodily fluids were dumped on its head... it was probably thinking "WTH just happened to me!?"

the nice thing about animals is that they don't steal, cheat, collude with Russians, take away people's health insurance, don't approve of of dumping waste in the drinking water and muchmuch more. Let's have more giraffes and fewer politicains.
Brenda Worden
This morning we learned that April is 15 years old, while her mate, Oliver, is only 5 years old. Shouldn't that qualify her to be a COUGAR, instead of a giraffe?

If she were human, we would consider her a predator.

Strange how we never had a program called "Desperate Husbands" ogling all those beautiful, nubile young woman.

To be attracted to the most beautiful isn't shallow, it's Nature 101, and as natural as breathing. Somehow, we have criminalized a woman's choice of whom she wants to be with. Weird at best.
