I watched an episode from a TV show. The episode prompted me to recall the old grandmother that I knew, who had a tattoo
from being in the Nazi death camps. I did not know her for very long. She did not tell me much. She did show me her tattoo.
She was very old and thin. The line of numbers looked too big for her arm. She and her sister had survived.

Secrets and lies, are what led to that Holocaust. Permission to commit evil, was given. Were there secrets and lies,
that caused the Holocaust for Native Americans ? It began with a King, who gave permission to commit evil.

The King who sent his people forth, did not believe himself to be evil. Did Hitler believe himself to be evil ?

Today we have advanced technologies to clean the air. If people were incinerated, the terrible smell would be removed.
The people in Nazi Germany who lived not far from the death camps, could smell the stench from the chimneys.

Hatred was nursed into being, during the Nazi era. Secrets were kept and lies became the fabric of life.

Will America have a new Holocaust, in the future ? Will there be secrets kept and will lies become the fabric of American life ?

Not many who are targeted for death would survive. We have become so much more efficient at killing. Progress ?

Ah, to be young again. To have no worries, except for how to stay in touch with your best pals, when school started again.
(Before internet and cell phones) Some were lucky enough to go to private schools. Or, unlucky, if you hated boarding school.
Gathered together, during "Hurricaine parties, lamps and tape-decks and battery run radios. Some acoustic guitars, sometimes a fiddle.
Playing a card game, called "Fuck Your Buddy." It had nothing to do with sex. But, there was a lot of good-natured teasing and
swearing during the card game. Waiting, tuning into the weather radio, waiting to hear if we could plan something fun.
In the dark, resting in our sleeping bags,with our flash lights. Not knowing we were mortal, not knowing of tragedy and pain.

Oh! It is not the end of the Mayan Prophecy ?

"The Maya recorded time in a series of cycles, including 400-year chunks called baktuns. It's these baktuns that have led to rumors
of an end-of-the-world catastrophe on Dec. 21, 2012 -- on that date, a cycle of 13 baktuns will be complete."

"But the idea that this means the end of the world is a misconception, Stuart said. In fact, Maya experts have known for a long time
that the calendar doesn't end after the 13th baktun. It simply begins a new cycle. And the calendar encompasses much larger units
than the baktun."

http://news.discovery.com/history/ma...ay-120511.html

But where did this Mayan doomsday idea come from anyway?

2012 Doomsday is a "Marketing Fallacy" ?

When I was a child, you sent the cat out for the night. And brought the dog into the house.

Now, you bring them both indoors at night. Coyotes eat cats. Dogs, too. I hear the coyotes, having their yipping sessions.

I did not hear the foxes, this fall. Makes me sad. Chased away, or eaten. The groundhog did not shepherd her kits across my lawn.

[Bing] Crosby lived there at least 20 years after it was designed in the late 1930s by architect Gordon Kaufman,
who also built the 46,000-square-foot Greystone mansion in Beverly Hills for the oil-rich Dohenys in 1928.
Crosby sold his house to Patrick J. Frawley Jr., president of Schick Laboratories, who sold it to Spelling,
who reportedly plans to replace it with the new mansion.

http://articles.latimes.com/1986-01-..._beverly-hills

April 8, 1988: Under construction at a cost of $12 million, the 56,500-square-foot Spelling mansion takes shape in Holmby Hills.
Now officially known as “The Manor,” the home is slightly larger than the White House.

http://framework.latimes.com/2011/05...lling-mansion/

What's bigger than a football field, smaller than Hearst Castle, has a bowling alley and an entire floor of closets,
and is making some people very annoyed? Aaron and Candy Spelling's 56,500-square-foot mansion in Holmby Hills.

The French chateau, under construction now for two years, has turned the corner of Mapleton and Club View drives
into a gawker's paradise. Sprawled across 6 acres on what once was the Bing Crosby estate, the house dwarfs the
sizable mansions on the block and looms large over tranquil Holmby Park near Wilshire Boulevard.

http://articles.latimes.com/1988-04-...1_holmby-hills

The widow of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling put the 4.7-acre residence up for sale more than two years ago at $150 million.
Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of British billionaire and Formula One Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone, is in escrow to buy the property,
a report says.

To non-scientific readers,
Gesner will be best known for his love of mountains (below the snow-line) and for his many excursions among them,
undertaken partly asa botanist, but also for the sake of mere exercise and enjoyment of the beauties of nature.
In 1541 he prefixed to a singular little work of his (_Libellus de lacte et operibus lactariis_) a letter addressed
to his friend, J. Vogel, of Glarus, as to the wonders to be found among the mountains, declaring his love for
them, and his firm resolve to climb at least one mountain every year, not only to collect flowers, but in
order to exercise his body.

In 1555 Gesner issued his narrative (_Descriptio Montis Fracti sive Montis Pilati_) of his excursion to the Gnepfstein (6299 ft.),
the lowest point in the Pilatus chain, and therein explains at length how each of the senses of man is refreshed in the course
of a mountain excursion.

- Lives by J. Hanhart (Winterthur, 1824) and J. Simler (Zürich, 1566);
see also Lebert's _Gesner als Arzt_ (Zürich, 1854). A part of his
unpublished writing, edited by Prof. Schmiedel, was published at
Nuremberg in 1753.
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/37610/37610-8.txt

Did Konrad Gesner say this, (about the alicorn, [unicorn ] in 1551? "the animal must exist on earth, or else its horn would not exist."

Born 26 Mar 1516; died 13 Dec 1565 at age 49.
Swiss physician, naturalist, and encyclopedist is best known for his monumental works. Gesner's aim was to survey all the world's recorded knowledge. His books included systematic compilations of information on animals and plants. Elaborately illustrated , Historiae animalium comprised five volumes, the first appearing in 1551, each covering a portion of the animal kingdom. Gesner's pictures made his works both more appealing and less ambiguous. Although he listed all the animals known in Europe, he had no idea of the relationships one animal to another. Yet, in Historica Plantarum (History of Plants), published two centuries after his death, he was the first to recognize that similar species could be grouped to form genera.
(pic on page)
The first known illustration of a lead pencil is found in Gesner's book on fossils (1565). [Name sometimes spelled as 'Konrad'.]

Is it wrong of me, to want a Christmas tree decorated with sea slugs ? Nice sticky molded silicone would make very nice models.

This one, is so pretty!

Binturongs would be nice, too. They have a scent similar to popcorn.

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night, and you're half asleep but you're viewing yourself from a weird point of view? I don't mean looking at yourself, but it's like you're seeing yourself from outside in a way. It's a moment of clarity where you see your life as it really is, like an outside observer would see it.

What it reminds me of is all those tv shows and movies where someone is going about their daily life but actually they're in a coma in a hospital, or on an alien spaceship or something. And every now and again they have these brief flashes of reality... seeing their life as it really is, and it's terrifying and disturbing.

Does anyone else get that?

Where the Wild Things Are
Maurice Sendak
1963
Harper & Row

In 2001, Universal Studios acquired rights to the book's adaptation
The animated version was replaced with a live-action concept in 2003
Eric Goldberg was dropped for Spike Jonze.
Where the Wild Things Are
Film Release date- October 16, 2009

Bears (book)
by Ruth Krauss, Maurice Sendak (Illustrator)
3.34 of 5 stars 3.34 · rating details · 82 ratings · 18 reviews
With just 27 words, the inimitable Ruth Krauss created a charming little universe.

Bears (original) Ruth Krauss, illus. by Phyllis Rowand (1948)

Now Maurice Sendak has turned her bears into a troupe of players in a slapstick comedy starring a familiar boy in a wolf suit.
Hardcover, 24 pages
Published May 24th 2005 by HarperCollins

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2293154.Bears

Dr. Eugene Glynn, Sendak's [life] partner dies, May 2007.
Dr. Glen's words- “Techniques will have to be worked out for educational television for showing, not a baseball game,
but how to pitch a curveball; for sending its audience on nature hunts, into club activity, to the library for books.
Being aware of the dependent relationship in its audience, television must look for ways to undo it—the problem
of any teacher or parent.”
(And along, came the interwebs....)

Sendak died on the morning of May 8, 2012

He did not live in a world where he could marry the one he loved. (for 50 years!)

"All I wanted was to be straight so my parents could be happy. They never, never, never knew." (That he was gay.)

I ran into this word, again, elsewhere.
"....he made her presents from time to time, sending her whiles a clove of garlic, which he had the finest of all the countryside
in a garden he tilled with his own hands, and otherwhiles a punnet of peascods or a bunch of chives or scallions, and whenas
he saw his opportunity, he would ogle her askance and cast a friendly gibe at her; but she, putting on the prude, made a show
of not observing it and passed on with a demure air; wherefore my lord priest could not come by his will of her."

Peascod ? Cod piece ? Cod fish ?- Middle English pesecod= pese + cod bag, husk- related: cod piece! 14th C
( 2 Peas and a cod, in a pod ? ) Middle English codpese, from cod bag, scrotum (from Old English codd) + pese piece
First Known Use: 15th century

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/codpiece

the pod of the pea plant

http://www.memidex.com/peascod

the front of a 16th-century doublet, quilted or stuffed to form a pointed bulge over the stomach and abdomen

If there is anything, that I am grateful for, it is that you dragged me down the street, to go and see his artwork.
The image I had of him, changed. He touched theses things, he came up with those ideas. Something urged him
to create. And we came along, and shared what was there. You were drawn to some images, and I was drawn to
others. Gifts that he left, for all to share.

In 2010 more newborns arrived in September than in any other month. The second, third, and fourth most popular birthday
months were August, June, and July, in that order.

27 July 2010

The summer has been the top season for births in the United States, according to records kept by the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, and August often wins the title as the month during which the most babies are born.

In 2006, the most recent year for which statistics are available, August had the most U.S. births, just as it did in 10 of the previous
16 years, with the CDC estimating that 9 percent of all births occurred then. February had the least.

"We bid a hearty welcome to the millions of new earthlings who arrive in August, the month with the highest birth rate."

"You are the proud results of a joyous Christmas season… even if your parents did not put up Christmas trees."

"And compared with other months, the stork flies least in February."

$300,000.00 worth of dead, dry, rusty red, nearly needle-less Christmas trees. The loss of three years effort.

A string of powerful storms has dumped a mountain of snow in the Sierra Nevada and provided top-notch conditions
for what traditionally is one of the busiest weeks of the skiing season.

Squaw Valley USA near Lake Tahoe reports receiving more than 3 feet of new snow between Friday and early Sunday
morning, and forecasters expect another 1 to 2 feet by Monday morning.

Resort spokeswoman Amelia Richmond says the storms have set the stage for a busy holiday week and assured Squaw Valley
of its second largest Christmas Day snowpack since 1970.

The resort has received some 200 inches of snow so far this season, compared with nearly 250 inches
of snow on Christmas Day, 2010.

The heavy snowfall will allow most Sierra resorts to kick into full operation.

http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2012...sierra-skiing/

Five feet of snow ? It is possible- at least, at the peak.
