You should have gone for using "glower" which rhymes with "hour."

That's -15 points for bad rhyming.  Maybe the greats CAN get away with it, but they don't post here!



:D

I'll pass on your suggestion to Mr. Longfellow :)

I recorded a PBS show on Herculaneum.  I've been to that site  several times and I'm always fascinated by new  shows that reveal the newest finds.  The site has only been marginally excavated and new things will be revealed in  many years to  come.

That's okay.  I didn't have a single "Ooh! Ooh" in me.

And I didn't want to fudge around with code to make the page numbers big and beauteous.

I'm guessing DR François will  be returning to "the fold" soon, as his January holiday will be ending this week (if I haven't misunderstood  that's why he's been E&T).

I think it's time for bed.

But before I go....TomovOz, our local PBS station (KQED) aired a beautiful episode of "Nature" (in high definition) Sunday evening called "The Colorful Parrots of Oz".  It was a co-production of KNET New York with the Australian Broadcasting System.

It's rather recent (2006, I think), and it was narrated by F. Murray Abraham.  The show covered the continent and offered spectacular footage of the varieties of parrots, their distinctive colorings, diets, mating rituals, etc., in different parts of Australia.  Part of the proceedings showed what happened in the channel region (district?) after the seasonal rains fall and tens of thousands of parrots frantically begin their breeding along the banks of channels that are filled with water after the rains.  

What was particularly fun was that thanks to you and Colin, I was familiar with many of the names of the varieties of parrots I saw.

What a paradise Australia is.

One of my very favorite spots to visit.

I am always amazed by how far advanced Roman engineering had progressed - municipal water supplies, indoor plumbing, heated baths...

The Greeks were such great thinkers, but the Romans were the doers!

Just think - brain surgury in ancient Egypt, a working steam engine in Alexander's court, accurate measurements of the circumference of the earth and the distance to the moon - then war and turmoil - and a thousand years of Dark Ages until man began to regain the learning!

Skip seemed to have enjoyed JERRY SPRINGER, THE OPERA very much.

I have the London cast recording and enjoyed that.  I had no idea that I would like it as much as I did. :)
