I have to apologize Thistle....I was actually making a joke...sorry tongue.gif

I was purposefully mis-characterizing the word...intransitives..as 'transients'.  Transients are people who only stay a short time in one place.  I was even further mis-characterizing the word 'transients' to include migrant workers, who in the states are mostly of Mexican origin and hence speak Spanish more often than English.  Intransitives are verbs, or verb constructs which do not require a direct object to complete their meaning.  Aslan is reading a book entitled The Function of the English Verb.  I apologize for my lame attempt at humor. cool.gif

The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change.
So that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger, but in wisdom, understanding and love.

I just finished From Potters Field by Patricia Cornwell, it was good, but lacked the detail i am used to reciving from Stephen King. I just started The Dark Half by Stephen King. And not to get off the topic, but i just saw Secret Window last night and it was great... varried from the book just a little, but kept true to the story.

I usually have a few different books going at a time, in different styles. I am a big Louis L'amour fan, and am working through his series of books now.

My wife and I take turns reading to each other at night, almost always it is a good old cowboy story...

Right now we are reading "Westward the Tide" by L'amour. About 75% of his stories are the same basic plot; they are your typical western stories. Good guy/Bad guy-White hat/Black hat. His main characters seem to be one of three different types of cowboys that he chooses from...even with the similarities, I still enjoy the writing; very descriptive and beautiful...



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

My late uncle was a huge LL fan also.  He had the entire series of books in Leather Bound Edition.  He was also a 'gun nut'.  He loved guns and everything about the old west.  I have read a few LL books.  Good reading! thumbsup.gif

I'm currently reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

A very fascinating novel of a satirical view of the future, where cloning and the "conditioning" of humans are taken extravangantly with technological and biological mass production becomes seemingly a key.   thumbup.gif  clap.gif  thumbup.gif

Currently chin deep in Black's Microbiology: Principles and Explorations, 5th edition.  It's a really great source of info on microbes, but the editors could have done a far better job.  The amount of spelling errors is almost alarming for a professional text!

On the side-Serving up a side of Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix,  for about the 3rd time.  I like the series, but this last book is very dark, full of teenage me-ism type angst.  Really makes me want to reach thru the pages and tell this kid (Potter) to pull his head outta his arse and realise he is cared for.  Grrr...

PS Blue Scorpion-Brave new world was one of my all time fav's!  Reminded me of the movie Gattica (or vice versa).

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Lord Byron

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

The point is to discover that core of uniqueness that is in each of us, that is beyond all social roles and to make that the point from which we act, live, and think in the world.
