Latin . . .


(from wikipedia.com)
". . . Latin was originally spoken in Latium, Italy. Through the power of the Roman Republic, it became the dominant language, initially in Italy and subsequently throughout the Roman Empire. Vulgar Latin developed into the Romance languages, such as French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Romanian. Latin and French have contributed many words to the English language. Latin and Greek roots are used in theology, biology, and medicine. . ."


Long To Be Latin

Fingers . . .


(from http://thinkexist.com/quotes/with/keyword/fingers/)
“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.”
 -Audrey Hepburn

“The two most misused words in the entire English vocabulary are love and friendship. A true friend would die for you, so when you start trying to count them on one hand, you don't need any fingers.”
 -Larry Flynt

“On the other hand, you have different fingers.”
 -Stephen Wright

“When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself.”
 -Louis Nizer

“Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers”
- Hans Christian Andersen

 “Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away.”
-Dorothy Parker

Songs . . .

. . . without music . . .


(from http://www.frederickgorilla.com/the-art-of-listening)
“Rod,” as he prefers to be called, is quite the colorful character, blending, as he does, a Salisbury, England, upbringing with 18 years of Americanization. But if it weren’t for this pond hopper’s passion for music, the Songwriter Showcase that’s been running at Brewer’s Alley for seven years, (where you can hear live, original music . . . every Monday night) might not have occurred.

And what could be more inspiring on a Monday evening than experiencing original works of performing art with an intimate local audience, in a setting that—with its raftered ceilings and paneled walls—whispers of culture and enchantment? Nothing else comes to mind, except to say that this night of cultural enrichment is also free—though, tips, of course, are suggested for the featured musicians.

Ditty . . .

. . . in the city
. . . last week . . .


On your mark get set
Disconnect that internet
Every girl and boy
Breathing in the joy
Not a care at last
Sit outside and bask
In rays of summer's bliss

Crabs and fish and shells
Feel your tensions melt
Fries and pizza pie
Smiles won't be denied
Everything is cool
in 2 1 8 4 2
Feel the sparkle in your eyes

Catch a wave and ride
Cars and motorbikes
Bikini babes in the sand
Vibin' to rockin' bands
Ocean City

From Memorial to Labor Day
We beckon you to play
To a boardwalk beat
Miles and miles of beach
Your memories to take
Currents dance and sway
leave your footprints in the sand

Fireworks at night
Give your love a kiss
Sail and fish the sea
Here life is a beach
in Ocean City

Now is the time that's right
For you only live once
Time does drag when it's all work and no fun
The ocean gateway calls you
Sport your shorts and shades
It's so divine to dine at life's buffet
It's almost heaven and
There's so much more we can say

Catch a wave and ride
Cool cars and motorbikes
Bikinis on the sand
Dance to rockin' bands
Ocean City

More . . .

. . . Blood . . . 

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My hands

Bar rooms sure have a funny way
Of bringing loyalty out in a man
Buy a drink and tell a joke
And buddy you've got you a friend
But keep a good eye upon that friend
Because he really doesn't give two hoots
And don't say anything about his Mom
His girlfriend or his army boots

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My hands

Walked into an auto-mo-showroom
I need some wheels but got no money to spend
When a guy with an ugly tie
Walks out and acts like he's my long-lost friend
I said hey Buddy I've a purpose here
And if you please I will accomplish my goal
So don't you slap me on the back again
Cause if you do I might just lose my control

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My hands

So please be careful when you meet someone
Who'll make a promise at the drop of a hat
And don't provide them with encouragement
You will regret the day you offered him that
Cause everybody needs some empathy
But just how willing
And how far will they go
To really help you when the chips are down
Can they be trusted half as far as you throw them

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My hands

Fever . . .

. . . courtesy of OHO. . .


(from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco)
". . . Disco is a genre of dance music containing elements of funk, soul, pop, and salsa that was most popular in the mid to late 1970s, though it has had brief resurgences. Its initial audiences were club-goers from the gay, African American, Italian American, Latino, and psychedelic communities in New York City and Philadelphia during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Disco also was a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period. Women embraced disco as well, and the music eventually expanded to several other marginalized communities of the time. . ."

Crackpots . . .

. . . abound . . .
Advice for Ben Carson. . .
1.  Cancel your presidential campaign
2.  Research Islam
3.  Research the Constitution
4.  Never run for president again


(from http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/spokesman-ben-carson-thinks-people-would-decide-muslim-president-n430656)
". . . Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts said Carson will likely reach out to members of the Muslim community in wake of the comments but said the interview should be "watched or read carefully." "He did not say that a Muslim should be prevented from running, or barred from running in any way," Watts said. "He [Carson] just doesn't believe the American people are ready for that." Carson said Sunday in response to an interview question that "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that." When asked if a candidate's faith should matter to voters, Carson said, "I guess it depends on what that faith is. If it's inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter." When asked if he thought Islam is consistent with the Constitution, Carson said, "No, I don't, I do not." . . . "

Monday . . .



(from Mr. Rod Deacey's weekly bulletin)
". . . The featured performer tomorrow night, Monday, September 21, is making up for a snow cancellation for the second year in a row – we hope he won’t make it a hat-trick this coming winter! Our good friend ANDREW McKNIGHT wears a bunch of different hats – he is a skilled musician on a number of instruments, a talented songwriter and singer of songs (both solo and with his band, Beyond Borders), and an excellent raconteur and storyteller. On top of that, he is a really nice guy – we like him a lot! Come and check him out – he is constantly entertaining!

      Monday’s Piano Prelude will be played for us by the one-and-0nly ROCKIN’ RAY JOZWIAK, whose style is akin to jazz pianist Keith Jarrett.  Rockin’ Ray will also rock out a bit as part of our house band later in the evening – he sounds more like Bill Payne of Little Feat in this portion of the evening… During Ray’s prelude and for the rest of the evening, Christian will be taking care of our food and drinks, assisted as usual by Steve…

    Three-song cameos come from our good friend TOM DEWS, back in the area on a rare visit, plus Ron’s Pick KATY HYLTON Poetry will be from JOHN HOLLY, and I’ll throw in a poem and a couple of songs late in the evening. TOMY WRIGHT is away this week.

      MISTER RON GOAD will be in charge of the percussion section this week, which may be just him, but could also include talented pinch-hitter TIM BRADY . . . "

Balanced . . .



(from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender-specific_and_gender-neutral_pronouns)
A gender-neutral pronoun, by contrast, is a pronoun that is not associated with a particular grammatical or social gender and that does not imply, for instance, male or female. Many English pronouns are gender-neutral, including they (which in certain contexts can also refer to a singular antecedent such as everyone, a person, or the patient).

Many of the world's languages do not have gender-specific pronouns. Others, however – particularly those that have a pervasive system of grammatical gender (or have historically had such a system, as with English) – have gender specificity in certain of their pronouns, particularly third-person personal pronouns.

Problems of usage arise in languages such as English, in contexts where a person of unspecified or unknown sex or social gender is being referred to but commonly available pronouns (he or she) are gender-specific. In such cases a gender-specific, usually masculine, pronoun is sometimes used with intended gender-neutral meaning; such use of he was also common in English until the middle of the twentieth century but is now controversial. Use of singular they is another common alternative. By using "he" or "she" the speaker may make assumptions about gender identity. Some people express their identities more ambiguously and appearances can be deceptive. Some attempts have been made, by proponents of gender-neutral language, to introduce invented gender-neutral pronouns.
