Up In Smoke


Light-winged Smoke, Icarian bird,
Melting thy pinions in thy upward flight,
Lark without song, and messenger of dawn
Circling above the hamlets as they nest;
Or else, departing dream, and shadowy form
Of midnight vision, gathering up thy skirts;
By night star-veiling, and by day
Darkening the light and blotting out the sun;
Go thou my incense upward from this hearth,
And ask the gods to pardon this clear flame.

Henry David Thoreau

    If that coin was in Kenya, that means China owns that Island. China will be stopping by shortly to claim the island, sorry Kenya.

      I cannot bring myself to post anymore to HP. I’ve never cared for Yahoo, but I know what you mean about the filth on that site. I’ve come to the conclusion, that anger masked in humor is still anger.

        Yahoo is the worst.

        HP is still OK for me depending on the thread. Like the Higgs Boson thread today was fun.

          I used to have a tolerance for posting to HP, but looking at the comment sections of all sites I just got tired of reading either the same thing over and over, or the blatant hate. What also bothers me is that it is very much like a herd mentality. Someone will post a comment with decent facts in it, then the trolls will come in and say all types of stupid stuff about the comment, basically create facts to fit their response, then the herd will favorite and approve their comment when in fact they basically made stuff up. It is like stupidity is rewarded more than genuine sentiment.
          It will do a wonder though spending some time away from reading them. I didn’t realize how much a single comment would upset me and bother me until I stopped reading so many of them.

            Yeah, I had a guy the other day who claimed everyone who didn’t vote in the 2012 election didn’t vote because they’re opposed to Obamacare.

            Please, 90 percent of the people who didn’t vote in 2012 NEVER vote, EVER. Because they don’t care.

      Kenya is an island…?

      Is he thinking of Zanzibar?

    Oh dear, hubby just put some plain yoggie in a bowl, ready to put fruit on top, but left it for a mo, to go to the loo, he’s come back to an empty dish, and Angus licking his lips, and there is none left. :lol:.

    The destruction of the Library at Alexandria, due to a fire spreading from a naval battle between the Romans and Egyptians, in my opinion is one of the greatest tragedies of mankind. Caesar foolishly set fire to his own ships to frustrate the Egyptian commander who was blocked behind the fires. The fire jumped to the shore then burned the Library. But, I guess it even goes to show that even back then, the best of man and woman’s ability to learn is always in danger when men with grudges and a desire to fight come near.
