 Article Title :: The When, Wheres, and Hows of Palmistry
“Cross my palm with silver, luvvie” smiles the deeply tanned, middle-aged palmist in true gypsy tradition, her beautifully manicured hand held out across the velvet-clad table. I duly hand over my 10-pound note, as instructed by the sign at the entrance, and my reading begins.The palmist asks to see my left hand and promptly tells me that I’ve experienced a recent relationship crisis. How clever! The fact that there’s a slight white band around my third finger where a wedding ring once sat might have been a clue, but I let it slide. “Yes, that’s right,” I confirm, not wanting to show my scepticism towards palmistry.“You have children, but I see at least one m  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Shirley Temple, I Still Love You!
Shirley Temple was the big thing with the girls when I was a kid. If my sisters could generate a dime, they went to one of her movies. Being a boy, I was only interested in war and western movies. That is until puberty, when I was interested in war, westerns, and any movie starring a sexy woman. When “The Outlaw” came to our town, we snuck off to see it. Wow!I mainly watched Shirley Temple movies with my kids on television. She was a cute little tyke with the cute dimples and all. Shirley also made some movies as a teenager. I’ve seen a couple of these on television and the first thing I noticed was that she talked the same way as she did as a child. Some director! Well, mayb  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why I Don't Like Frederick Wilhelm Viktor Albert of Hohenzollern: Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany
This morning I popped out of bed as I do every Sunday morning and stuck a cake in the oven. If I were to forget to do this I would be in deep trouble with my thirteen (13) Idaho grandchildren.While the cake was baking I got into my Sunday clothes for church. My wife and I piled into the pickup (It’s a small Nissan so the locals here call it a “toy.”), scrapped the first ice of the year off the windshield, and drove the 300 yards (276.923 meters) to the church.The parking lot was empty on the north side of the church but I could see that the cars of church leaders were on the south side parking lot. There could be only one explanation. We were on Daylight Saving Time!  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Read this Article if You No Longer Vote
Many Americans do not vote, which seems silly considering our democracy has proven to propel us into the status of being one of the most Free countries on the Planet. Recently the world watched as Iraq was liberated and the citizens were able to vote and plot their own course for their future. With purple fingers as proof they made a choice to rule their own destiny. Again Iraqi citizens showed up in droves to ratify a new Constitution and set of rules they agreed to live by. It is truly inspirational and for them a turning point in the Middle of the Middle East.As we watch these wonders our heart smiles and we understand and feel the raw emotion of their endeavors and their new fo  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Shakespeare - Taming of the Shrew - Play Review
Keeping within the imaginative boundaries of human life, without becoming overly outlandish, the comedy demonstrated in the play was often sardonic, lighthearted, and always entertaining.The comedy revolves around a group of men and the conflict that ensues between them in the battle to win the heart of a wealthy man's beautiful and gentle daughter, Bianca. These men disguise themselves, assume false occupations, and even hire others to deceive and charm young Bianca. Though this would normally be an easy feat of the daughter simply choosing a groom, a wrench is thrown into the gears. Bianca has a sister named Kate. A woman, who does not lack in beauty, but blessed (burdened?) w  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Great Wall of China - The Chinese Dragon
When seen from above the Great Wall of China looks like a dragon zigzagging over mountain tops. The Chinese call it “Wan Li Chang Cheng” which means “Wall of 10,000 Li”. (10,000 li= 5,000 km)Actually, the Great Wall is 7,200 km long. Height wise, it is 4.5m to 9m. Depth wise, it is 4.5m to 8m. The entire structure was built by hand using stone, bricks, soil, sand, straw, wood, clay or whatever was available depending on the terrain.Three main Chinese dynasties -- the Qin (B.C 221-207), Han (B.C 206- A.D 220) and Ming (A.D 1368-1644) -- built the Great Wall of China.
