Ten Powerful Words – Dan Rather

“You have done enough.

Have you no sense of decency?”

Dan Rather writes:

“These are the immortal words of army lawyer Joseph Welch in response to Senator Joseph McCarthy during the communist witch hunts of the 1950s. They are sadly just as apt today.

I do not like rising to the bait of the tweets of President Trump. But this morning’s demeaning, sexist, and scurrilous attack on Mika Brzezinski cannot go unmentioned. I have known Mika for many years. We were colleagues at CBS News and she is a fearless and fair journalist. I also knew her late father, Zbigniew, who was President Carter’s national security advisor. The fact that this attack comes while Mika is still mourning his death only adds to the outrages and disgust.”

I love a man in a skirt.

A kilt, really. Women around the world have a fascination with a man bold enough to don a kilt.

San Franciso is famous for many things, and Wm Glen and Sons – the Kilt Capital of the Free World/West Coast branch is Mecca for men seeking the perfect Kilt ensemble.

Ask any woman the first time she met a man in a kilt and she will quote – chapter and verse- the when and the where.

Brenan Burke, bachelor and bon vivant, wears a kilt to every wedding he attends. He never leaves alone.

Memory is a magnet. It will pull to it and hold only material nature has designed it to attract.

California Dreaming…

“I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree…”

“Having made these noble trees an especial study during the past year, I approach them always, I may say, with reverence.

As giants and patriarchs of the forest they stand alone. Nowhere throughout the world can be found living trees that are more majestic and inspiring….

It is a pleasure to linger in the redwoods to contemplate their greatness….

The trees are grand without being oppressive; noble but not arrogant; lords of the soil that do not impoverish the land. ”

F.H. Clark “Forestry; Redwoods,”

Annual Report of the State Board of Horticulture of the State of California, for 1891

To Err is Human – to lie is bad…really bad

The King was in the Counting House counting all the Rubles..

Sing a song of six guys

A pocket full of wry…

Four and twenty senators
Involved in a scheme.

When the scheme was opened
The News Anchors  began to sing;
Wasn’t that a Gotcha dish,
To set before the king!

The king was at the Golf Course
Counting all his Rubles
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating Blini, Pelmeni and Knish

The aid was in the garden,
Whiting out and deleting  files, documents, secret papers

When down came an FBI undercover whirlly bird
And pecked off the news!

No one told them about high tide

Every five years, a tsunami hits.

Rober and Laura were tired of City living and were at the point, they would do anything to get away from the noise, pollution, the density and the filth.

They attended a wedding on the island and fell in love with the sky, the water and the solitude. Their real estate agent swiflty found a newly built home, put the sales package together and was off on a trek to Himalayas. 

Laura could not have been happier. She carefully unpackced their belongings before they had to travel to Egypt for a month-long meeting about Climate and Change.

The night they returned to their beautiful new home –  there were strong winds, then rain.

Rober said he had never heard a noise like the one that rumbled outside their home that night. It sounded like a train – a massive train – traveling at high speed. WIthin a minute they heard the ocean barrelling towards their home.

Tsunami.

A cup of Con fefe every morning?

cropped-brooke-lark-158019-2.jpg

We start each morning with a “Hiya, sun!”

That’s our abbreviated   Sun Salute.

A colorful fruit plate is our traditional weekday breakfast. Never the same -each day is a mealnge of seasonal sweet fruits. We toss in a few mini-berry muffins or hardboiled eggs. Voila!

Our stove top has special copper pot where each day we brew an addictive, floral concoction my granddad, Con, named Con Fefe – a name our family and friends have all used for decades.
