Thomas Tham. It is amazing to me, that this child can smile with the turmoil around her. She picks up a wired conduit to be used as her new found toy. She smiles. She plays. She is a child. Not knowing the world around her disintegrates. Or maybe she does know. I look at her and I praise God for her smile and thank Him for my blessings. JP 9/16/2012

“They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they kept only one; they promised to take our land, and they did.” Chief Red Cloud,  Oglala Lakota  (1822 – December 10, 1909)

There is an ancient Indian saying~ Something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant & immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous & unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember & seek the truth.~Floyd 'Red Crow' Westerman

I love this. Look how young and little she is, sitting and leaning over to pet the cat, demure-like with ankles crossed and knitting needles in hand.... Age????

Off the shores of Alexandria, the city of Alexander the Great, lies what is believed to be the ruins of the royal quarters of Cleopatra. A team of marine archaeologists led by Frenchman Franck Goddio made excavations on this ancient city from where Cleopatra, the last queen of the Ptolemies, ruled Egypt. Historians believe this site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves more than 1,600 years ago.

    Found this one and it is downloading. It will be my listening reward when I complete my analysis of "Song of Roland" <>. I also found "The Book that Sticks" and it is on hold! Thanks again!

    I completed Team of Rivals a few weeks ago. Enjoyed it because it had a lot of references to historical documents as the basis of the story . Seems to make it more authentic as a result. Distracting too because I listened to audio version and the narrator's style of reading made me feel like I was reading a research paper . I appreciated Lincoln's style. When I am done with school I will join/start a book club so I have an outlet to further consider books like this with others. Thanks for recommending it.

    Sure Teri ... good to hear the extra details. Sounds like it was a mixed bag of enjoyment as to the audio version + the written version. My son enjoys audio ... I am a bigger fan of the old school written words so I can retrace the last sentence read (or paragraph) for a better digestion of the last thoughts. That's another subject. Great - congratulations - another book in your personal library! And with your new goals for joining a "book-club" --- the years ahead should be built upon good authors (among other things, of course). Merry Christmas Teri - all the best to you and your husband!
