"The Canterbury Tales" is Geoffrey Chaucer's most well known work, which consists of an amalgamate collection of stories told by a diverse group of pilgrims who are on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. Both the "Parliament of Fowls" and "Troilus and Criseyde" are also written by Geoffrey Chaucer, but "Confessio Amantis" was written by Chaucer's contemporary, John Gower." -This quote is in honor of my mother visiting my brother this week.

P.S. Just because I know a friends and relatives in the Army does not mean I LIKE the US military, or the human soul free crap that runs the U.S. military. I very much so hated 9-11 and the fools that helped it happen. I have hated every second I ever spent on a military base. Completely hated it to the depths of my soul. My mother is going to watch my brother retire from the military this week. I refuse to go with her on this government rear-kissing pilgrimage, I feel the government should not look for fights we do not belong in. The idea that being policeman to the world is a great way to spend United States taxes is a sickness which should be protested.

    The cartoon is a hoot! And prolly more true that the politically entrenched would admit to!
I understand about your feeling vis a vis military conflicts. It is a shame that a small group of people seem to have caused so much damage to our National psyche. I geuss, for me, the question isn't whether we "should" be the Policemen to the World, but rather, since we are; just how do we do our job? No easy answers for sure!

History

More great moments in medical history. Old advertisements are just FUNNY. How did anyone ever live until age 18 in the olden day times?

    Many did not! My mom (who was born in 1913) tells me they took turpentine for somethings- imagine swallowing turpentine! it would eat your flesh all the way down! I know some things worked, like mustard poltis (however it is spelled). I thank God for all the more modern things today. Of course in 50 years someone will be saying... can you imagine how insane these people were for taking that!
Thus innovation continues :)

Wooden Leg

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I got this one wrong, but I like the theme of living past problems. George Eyser won six medals for gymnastics in the 1904 Olympics. Amazingly, what artificial body part did he have?

Your answer: Tin ear

The correct answer was Wooden leg

Eyser was a 14-year old boy when he was hit by a train and lost his left leg. His wooden leg did not prevent the 33-year old man from winning three gold medals, two silvers, and one bronze. He won them all on the same day for the United States gymnastics team. With all those medals, teammate Anton Heida still bested him with five gold medals and one silver.

Photography Class

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

This is in honor of the A and B average I got, and the As on photography projects I submitted, in the Photography certification I just took in online college classes. "In photography, which of the following terms refers to a broad view that is usually scenic? Your answer: Panorama British painter Robert Barker (1739-1806) coined the term "panorama", which has its origins in the Greek language."
