For no particular reason, I was recently thinking about the subject of bogus history—historical "facts" that are very widely believed and flatly false. The example I started with is one of some current political interest, the belief that Herbert Hoover responded to the beginning of the Great Depression by cutting government expenditure. As I pointed out some time back in response to such a claim, it's the precise opposite of what really happened. e. By that standard, he makes Obama and Bush look like skinflints. For a second and unrelated example, consider the standard story of Columbus—that he heroically stood up for the scientific truth of a spherical earth against a flat earth orthodoxy, sailing west in defiance of warnings that he would fall off the edge. A spherical earth had been the accepted scientific doctrine for well over a thousand years and the Greeks had produced a reasonably accurate estimate of its size. It's from the Hubble Deep Field, an image of a small region of space about a thirteeth of a Full Moon wide. "Spring is sprung, the grass is riz, I wonders where the birdies is. " That's how the rhyme goes, as I recall. For those interested in language, "spring" here is both a noun and a verb, with "sprung" as a participle of the verb "to spring".
Ah, what a loss I must have been to the English teacher fraternity.However, what we have here… is an adjective. A spring line is a second mooring line running at an angle to the first, to stop the boat moving around either in the wind or when another boat goes by. Properly set up, it will hold your boat very steady, and at Skipton junction, Erin Mae needs something to do just that. Boats of all sorts pass all the time, and the edge of the path wobbles around as it curves away. Without that spring line, bangs and crunches are regular occurrences. Post-hole-a-rama Yeah, another post with fat bikes in it. The only clear roads are the busiest ones. So, it was me and The Snow Dog again yesterday. I decided to go in search of the elusive packed down snowmobile trails that could be found by riding from the house. I am not one to drive to a ride unless it is to Camp Ingawanis. And boy did I! I ended up going all the way over to Westfield Road, a slog of over a mile, post-holing snow all the way. Photo by Simon Annand The Bristol two part Jane Eyre production is being reviewed in several local and national newspapers:Very Positive: The Telegraph: Just occasionally you go to the theatre, think in the early stages that the production is absolutely not your cup of tea, only to discover that your prejudices are being overturned and that initial dismay has given way to sheer delight. The action is set on what looks like a modern adventure playground, constructed of wood, and featuring a raised platform, a ramp, lots of step ladders and an on-stage band. I was out doing some Thrift Store Shopping recently and I found this "TREASURE. " I was so excited and immediately knew what I was going to do with it. I knew I wanted to recode the game and turn it into a BIBLE Matching Game. I knew one of my favorite clip art programs would be perfect for this project. Since I can not seem to cut a STRAIGHT line, My DH cut them for me on the cutting machine. Then the REAL work began. I peel and stuck two of every picture to those tiny squares. It was a labor of love. courtesy of on. Zhang Jin's face was even up against a pile of push pins. His dragon tattoo look also was unveiled for the first time. Raymond Wong Pak Ming even said that Zhang Jin would be the next kung fu action representative. ". Scott brought this article to my attention the other night, tucked away in a corner of the newspaper. Scary and depressing it may well be, but I'd still be interested to know if this would be documented anywhere. I'd very much like to see it with my own eyes.

The Wordsmith over at Flopping Aces ties the Bamster up with a bow and delivers the message with a lot of good links and quotes:Obama Doctrine Clearly Defined That's why those guys are on the Regular Stops list!. I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it. 'I thought about making a fitness movie, for folks my age, and call it "Pumping Rust. "I have gotten that dreaded furniture disease. ' I think you should write, "A Good Doctor!"I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me, they were cramming for their finals. "Who is that?" a passenger asked a passing steward. .
