Along the Via Dolorosa, Way of Grief. The top photo is of an impression of Jesus’ hand as he stumbled while carrying the cross. Top row middle, Station VII along the way where Jesus fell a second time. Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Entry to the tomb. This site has a telling of Via Dolorosa
Written Monday, April 1, 2018 This morning I looked into the future and determined that I was not going to be wholly productive today, and I was correct. But I ought to do something, right? So I looked to see what sort of things I had previously posted about Easter. It appears I had a
I look forward to Claudia’s Sunday Evening Art Gallery. Today’s is fabulous! Check it out (I’m looking at you, Daughter C & The J-Man).
Memphis Zoo and Aquarium, Memphis. Memphis, Tennessee. Traveling Sunday– a day late on account of the fact that we were traveling! The hotels in downtown Memphis are to be avoided at all costs. The SleepInn elevator (1) malfunctioned. Stopped at every unoccupied floor on the way to 5 & 6 and back down again We
The zoo opens at 9am. FYI, traveling with a mini electric kettle, Melitta ‘morning bliss’ coffee, two ceramic mugs, and a pour over cone sure does make waking up early in a pretty crappy* downtown Memphis hotel room more tolerable. *I have spared you the under construction details.
There’s a blog I read religiously, American Digest. A little of this, a little of that. Poetry, music, stories, personal history, thoughts on current and past events, occasional Monty Python. It’s smartly written by Gerard Van der Leun, edited by Olive. Gerard’s mom, who is 104 and looks fabulous in red, is not well. If
Hobbiton, New Zealand! From Kat & Tony’s Newsletter: To get to Hobbiton, you drive into farm country. Actually, most of New Zealand is farm country, but in this case you drive into places where it’s tough to get a cell signal. We arrived late the night before — late enough that we weren’t sure whether
From a garden in Savanah. Pouring down rain– again– and a bit chilly. Needed something Spring. How about you?
That’s like real snow. In February. I’ve experienced such in my younger years and had hoped to avoid it going forward. FYI just checked all of the Mississippi road, emergency, weather sites. Aweful. More rain, flooding, storms, tornados to come this afternoon.
“Essentialism and Determinism in Popular Thinking about Genetics” “A Synohony of Citizens: A New Strategy of Civic Friendship in Plato’s ‘Laws’” “Discrimination at a Distance: Vicariuos Wrongs and the Comparative Test for Discrimination” “What are the subjective Probabilities in Quantum Theory” “Food Ethics and Eating as a Self-Shaping Activity” A representative sample of what we’re
I made my way down 16th St., in Denver on my way to Walgreens for a few OJs and cran apple juices, and a few crackers and some hummus. I nearly lost an ear lobe along the way. It’s cold as crap out there. Thank God I have my puffy coat. Mr Big Food was
Humm. Scheduled to depart Chicago 10:26. 29>26 Mr. Big Food is keeping himself busy by reading some business ethics text. Case studies & all. Enron. Walmart. Birkenstock’s. That sort of thing. Many people are keeping themselves busy by drinking alcohol at 10:29am. And looking at their phones, of course. But hey— what am I doing?
“All warfare is based on deception. “Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. 20. Hold out baits to entice the
The menu, a litany of updated regional classics such as black-eyed pea cakes, was relentlessly “improved” by garnishes such as avocados and Basmati rice. The joint’s “philosophy” — since all new restaurants must now publish a justifying manifesto along with their menu — centered on the now tedious homage to “local” “organic” produce and a
I have no idea how a theoretical physicist living in Sophia, Bulgaria came to follow my little blog. The polite thing to do when someone inexplicably follows is to– as WP asks me to do– is “check them out” (grammatically incorrect, WP). More often than not, I move on with my life. But sometimes… you
I understand. We weren’t actually together speaking of math, but Rocky & I were, so… . 77 – 29 = 48. A 48 degree drop in temperature from yesterday afternoon to this morning. More layers! And speaking of math– I witnessed the most amazing thing yesterday at the SuperLu. (That’s the SuperValu grocery in town
Welcome to Volume 92, Issue 05 of local news– where I endeavor to entertain you with all the news that’s fit to print here in the newspaper of record in my little county in rural Mississippi. Before we begin, an update on the ongoing and BIG news. The sheriff– having been indicted on 12 felony
As Missy is wont to do, I’ve began last Sunday’s Travels in the middle of things. So let’s back up. First– thanks to Daughter C! Not only were the photos taken by her when she & the J-Man visited the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, but also she kindly supplied me with a lot of
