gast: Second of all, several economic experts interviewed on the money channels expect no great catastrophe,
that's your problem gast,,,you get your "information" from TV
hmm, perhaps ronnie could donate the money he would have spent to a worthy cause, maybe feeding poor children.......naw, don't guess that would provide a testosterone rush.
Totally agree !!!!!!! Thanks for the article
He then published all three versions under the title "The Jumping Frog: in English, then in French, and then Clawed Back into a Civilized Language Once More by Patient, Unremunerated Toil"
In "Private History of the ‘Jumping Frog’ Story," he recounted some background to the tale—in particular, his surprise to find that the story bore a striking resemblance to an ancient Greek tale. He wrote:
Now, then, the interesting question is, did the frog episode happen in Angel’s Camp in the spring of ‘49, as told in my hearing that day in the fall of 1865? I am perfectly sure that it did. I am also sure that its duplicate happened in Boeotia a couple of thousand years ago. I think it must be a case of history actually repeating itself, and not a case of a good story floating down the ages and surviving because too good to be allowed to perish.
ah, young america
air-max,,,,,i would just suggest that we all retire to the "spirit oasis" with beverage of choice.
Donna, Not to let this thread get too personal, which it may already have, but you seemed to have grown up in the South. My mother being from Maury County and my father being from the west, I was moved each and every year from the south to the northwest beginning in kindergarten. Very different world back then, and I have to admit southerners were often most welcoming on the surface of things, but not necessarily honest about their "welcoming nature". Point being....people are people, and as I think Mark Twain would agree, it becomes an extremely individual concept. Not to take away from your sense of comfort and community, but I believe any time we think in generalizations, of our own or others, it becomes destructive ultimately.
Anyway, that being said, the truth and light usually shine through in the end...and how we react to the conversation and the journey are what is important.
