Book fair finds. Most are Al's military and history books. I found 4 or 5 interesting items including the opera music and lyrics for The King's Henchman, the ND history book, some Rudyard Kipling, King Kong, and a 1980s illustrated book about space travel. All $1 or less.
Just had two days away thanks to my wonderful husband,who just told me to pack an overnight bag,with no idea where I was going. Well we start Wednesday after Sian had picked poppy up(thank you) then made our way to Hughenden which was Benjamin Dissraille's house,but after his death was used for map planning during Second World War. Then it was onto the next stop which was the main surprise Warner Studio's for Harry Potter world which was absolutely fantastic,we both had a wonderful time for nearly 4 hours. After we had finished here we went onto an overnight stay in Cambridge. Thursday got up had breakfast,then a swim before going to Wimpole house and farm. This was an interesting house,which was last owned by Rudyard Kipling's Daughter and her husband,before being handed to the National Trust on her death. Then the only downside to two days away,stuck in traffic most of the way home.

They have taken me went to Nigeria with Chinua Achebe and to India with Rudyard Kipling. I travelled all over the world while sitting in my little room in my native village.
'The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.' Rudyard Kipling
How You Manage When you see that word “management” I hope you don’t think about your boss, but instead about how you manage your peers, your work, and your customers. We’re all managing things. The issue is how effective and wise we are in that duty. Enjoy (hopefully). · The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook – William James · Every race and every nation should be judged by the best it has been able to produce, not by the worst – James Weldon Johnson · More men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies – Rudyard Kipling [amen to that] · Power is the great aphrodisiac – Henry A. Kissinger · Market competition is the only form of organization which can afford a large measure of freedom to the individual – Frank Hyneman Knight · People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge – Lao-tzu [to which I would add, then people in this country must be pretty darn stupid because they’re getting rolled over] · If we had no f ...
NEVER DISCOURAGE ANY HUMAN BEING's POTENTIAL: :-) "In 1889 the editor of the "San Francisco Examiner" advised a then-unknown author named Rudyard Kipling that his submitted article was "simply ridiculous to any San Franciscan of ordinary intelligence." "I’m sorry, Mr. Kipling,” he said, “but you just don’t know how to use the English language." Kipling refused to change the article, and shortly thereafter left town. In 1907 the newspaper learned that Kipling had won the Nobel Prize in Literature." (Sir David Frost: I Could Have Kicked Myself: Book of World's Worst Decisions, 1982)
I love Wilfred Owen, Rudyard Kipling's If, Lady of Shallot - plenty of good poetry x I shall Wear Purple is my favourite.

Imagine yourself a modern Cassandra: 5 full years ahead of the sub-prime loan debacle (aka the Great Recession, which it would become globally) you had insisted that the commonsensical ways led to a dead end. And you walked your talk alright: your portfolio consisted exclusively of broad-based indices; the notion of the so-called risk appetite being totally absent in your mental apparatus, stiff upper lip all the way! Let's remind ourselves now with the full benefit of hindsight (русский мужик, как известно, задним умом крепок) how the things would have played out — wealth-wise — therefrom. While everyone around you were losing theirs (as Rudyard Kipling would probably have put it), you faithfully abstained from accumulating the securities in circulation. In real world terms, the other guys would get er... richer than you. A loss? A loss of profit? Let's pause here and try to reframe it too: the guys who blew the bubble to its limit inevitably causing a worldwide ...

Good afternoon to ALL my literate likers. A brief break from my scribblings to tease you once more. First, the quote of the day: "Man, an ingenious assembly of portable plumbing". Christopher Morley. I LOVE this one: Besides being well-known men, what did or do the following have in common? Walt Disney, Reich Marshal Herman Goring, Sir Edward Elgar, Peter Cushing, The Duke of Gloucester, Andy Williams, Rudyard Kipling and Neil Young. Feel free to Google this one. LOVE to ALL, JSJ.
When I was 8 I watched Bernard King and talked to my mother. I cooked amazing food compliments of Bernard King like Spanish Omlettes and made potatoe bird nests and pasties and pizza out of the wood stove jam tarts and apple turnovers with produce from the garden . I read books mostly from op shop Shakespeare and Rudyard Kipling and wrote plays
LOL! Oh, Yes! Under the blankets, with a flashlight, for up to 3 days at a time without sleep for thick books, like Great Expectations. Or, at my elementary school desk, hidden inside a history book I'd already finished reading in the first few weeks of class, for Dracula, Frankenstein and such skinnier books. Then, there were lots of Jules Verne, RL Stevenson, AC Doyle, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London. There was Moby *** the Hardy Boys and Marvel Comics, the Greek and Roman myths and native American stories, and… well, the list does go on. I lost a lot of sleep and missed a lot of my teachers' lectures. ;-) - Bill
D The Gods of the Copybook Headings by Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936 • Background Published in October 1919 when the poet was 53 years old, "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" has proved enduringly popular, despite the fact that copybooks disappeared from schoolrooms in Britain and America during, or shortly after, World War 2. A copybook was an exercise book used to practice one's handwriting in. The pages were blank except for horizontal rulings and a printed specimen of perfect handwriting at the top. You were supposed to copy this specimen all down the page. The specimens were proverbs or quotations, or little commonplace hortatory or admonitory sayings — the ones in the poem illustrate the kind of thing. These were the copybook headings. Kipling had lost his dearly loved son in World War 1, and a precious daughter some years earlier. He was a drained man in 1919, and England, with which he identified intensely, was a drained nation. Though he was no atheist, was in fact a Christian of an eccentric . ...
Today is the Death Anniversary of Sir Pelham Grenville WODEHOUSE ( 15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) the English Humorist whose body of work includes novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics and numerous pieces of journalism. He enjoyed enormous popular success during a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of a pre- and post-World War I English upper class society, reflecting his birth, education and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by recent writers such as Christopher Hitchens, Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams, J. K. Rowling and John Le Carré. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse wa ...

Rudyard Kipling asked how the leopard got its spots, the rhino its wrinkled skin. He called his answers "just-so stories." When evolutionists try to explain form and behavior, they also tell just-so stories—and the agent is natural selection. Virtuosity in invention replaces testability as the criterion for acceptance. Stephen Jay Gould (1980)
Recently, revisiting Rudyard Kipling, I came upon these eerie lines. Far-called, our navies melt away; On dune and headland sinks the fire; Lo, all our pomp of yesterday is one with Nineveh and Tyre! Judge of the nations, spare us yet. Lest we forget - Lest we forget. (Recessional) Ring a bell?

Reasons to be proud to be British . " If " by Rudyard Kipling is probably the worlds most stirring and frequently quoted poem . Its quiet wisdom , a reflection on the beauty of living a virtuous and humble life adorns office walls , is spoken publically at major rallies and is displayed at countless public monuments across the land . It`s even framed on the wall of the players` entrance to Centre Court at Wimbledon . It is the quintessential English poem written by a very English poet . Kipling was inspired to write the inspirational verse after a colonial raid executed by Sir Leander Starr Jameson in the Transvaal province , South Africa which finished on 2nd January 1896 . The raid was a bloody disaster and its failure helped incite the Boer War . But hey *** , every cloud etc , the poem is jolly nice .

In honor of Rudyard Kipling and his birthday – the most apropos poem in history:
If You Were Born Today, December 30 You are a passionate and enthusiastic person who is exceptionally goal-oriented. Without clearly defined goals to work towards, you feel utterly lost! You are ambitious for the most part. Although you tend to over-think and can become quite nervous when you do, for the most part you go after what you want in life. At times indulgent, you are also responsible and sensible. You work hard and play hard, but for many of you, work does come first. You have a strong artistic side to you. Famous people born today: Rudyard Kipling, Tiger Woods, Bo Diddley, Patti Smith, Tracey Ullman, Eliza Dushku, Kristin Kreuk.
i share my birthday with, Jeff Lynne (Tom jealous much?), Jamariqui,Bo Biddley, Tracy Ulman, Rudyard Kipling, Patty Smith, Hiedi Fleiss. Bet they're all gonna be delira when they find out they share their birthday with me!
Jenny Hooker-Drewery asked me what I know this year that I didn't know last year. I have discovered one of the cruelest jokes of God. As you get older it is more difficult to lose weight which is cruel because that means you have to work harder in the gym with an older body that has difficulty working harder. Also, I share a birthday with Titus (10th Emperor of Rome), Rudyard Kipling, Jeff Lynne (Traveling Wilburys), LeBron James, and Heidi Fleiss to name a few.

Origin of term 'It Girl' - Rudyard Kipling, 1904 - more widely used after Clara Bow film 'It', 1932
“The White Man’s Burden”: Kipling’s Hymn to U.S. Imperialism In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled “The White Man’s Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands.” In this poem, Kipling urged the U.S. to take up the “burden” of empire, as had Britain and other European nations. Published in the February, 1899 issue of McClure’s Magazine, the poem coincided with the beginning of the Philippine-American War and U.S. Senate ratification of the treaty that placed Puerto Rico, Guam, Cuba, and the Philippines under American control. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, copied the poem and sent it to his friend, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, commenting that it was “rather poor poetry, but good sense from the expansion point of view.” Not everyone was as favorably impressed as Roosevelt. The racialized notion of the “White Man’s burden” became a euphemism for imperialism, and many anti-imperialists couch ...

To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild, Your new caught sullen peoples, half devil, and half child. (Rudyard Kipling, 1899) Colonialism, racism, sexism, repressive labor policies, white minority control of wealth and resources: Post apartheid South Africa. 'Honor Mandela. Remember the goal.'
Rudyard Kipling, Masonic Ritual, And My Attempt To Find A Saving Grace In Mormon Temple Rudyard Kipling was an English poet and author, probably best known to the casual American reader by his "Jungle Book." I was fortunate to stumble across a critical review of his lesser known writings involving a fictional Masonic Lodge (Rudyard Kipling: *** and Heroism, by Wllm B. Dillingham). In fact, many of his writings were peppered with Masonic references, and for a good reason; he was initiated a Freemason in Lodge Hope and Perseverance, No. 782, E.C., in India, on the 5th of April, 1886, just under 21 years of age. ("Rudyard Kipling and Freemasonry" by W. Bro. S.P. Thompson, M.A., LL.M., vs. Sacred Kipling believed in the heroic life - a life filled with service and brave deeds for his fellow man. He also had an affinity for clubs and secret societies, and belonged to a good many of them. In writing about secret societies, he made secrecy a fundamental aspect of his ideal club, for it was also a basic ingredie ...

KEY OF SOLOMON VS WICCA VS GOLDEN DAWN ~LL~ Gerald Gardner claimed to have been initiated into Witchcraft which he later changed to Wicca. He claims that the information he provided came from his Book of Shadows of that coven to which he belonged. It seems fairly clear that Gardner’s story about a surviving hereditary Witch coven at Christchurch near the New Forest is false. It is possible he was initiated into some sort of occult group but not Witchcraft. Gardner concocted his Book of Shadows, a collection of rituals supposedly received from the coven, from the book Aradia Gospel of the Witches by Charles Leland, "which treats of Witchcraft in Italy, from the writings of Aleister Crowley who was a member, as was Gardner, of the Golden Dawn, and poetry of Rudyard Kipling and Free Masonry. The Golden Dawn obtained much of its foundation from the Key of Solomon. Who and what is the Key of Solomon and why can so much of it be found in modern practices of the new movement called Wicca. The Key of Solomon is ...

About Albert Camus (from the Guardian) ■ Born 7 November 1913 in Mondovi, Algeria, Camus grew up in poverty (his father was killed at the Battle of the Marne in 1914). His illiterate and partially deaf mother worked as a cleaner. ■ His intellectual promise was recognised by a teacher and he went on to study at the University of Algiers, where he played in goal for the university football team. ■ After working as a journalist and then joining the French Resistance during the war, he became a writer. His reputation is largely based on three novels, L'Etranger (The Stranger, or the Outsider, 1942), La Peste (The Plague, 1947) and La Chute (The Fall, 1956). ■ In 1934, he married the actress Simone Hié. They divorced in 1936. He married Francine Faure in 1940. She is the mother of Catherine and Jean Camus, who are twins. He was still married to Faure at the time of his death in 1960. ■ He was the second-youngest writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature after Rudyard Kipling. ■ Camus once c ...

Comment: a poor benefitting from unsustainable economic growth is hurting its society. Response: They are not hurting their society - their society receives labor, consumption, babies to ready for war and all around economic strength when the poor do well. Why do you think America can bully the rest of the world, and India can't? Even little Norway has power far surpassing a tiny nation of 3 million from the prosperity they create, and prosperity more than anything else is effective, efficient and lucrative (including for the individual) work for the poor. "Survival of the fittest" indeed - the fittest nation - and what more just bullying could their be than nations that are abusive to their weakest members being put down, humiliated and used by nations that aren't? "For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack." (Rudyard Kipling). A stronger poor is a stronger working class is stronger, more efficient work is a stronger America. Even in the event of scarce resources, ...
Steeped in heritage surajit kumar das Great Eastern Hotel, renamed Lalit Great Eastern, reopened on 19th November. Now that a private hotelier has taken it over from the state government, I ~ as a retired government officer ~ cannot afford to hire its banquet-hall for the annaprasan ceremony of my grand-daughter. But when it was under state management in March 1977, my late father, a businessman, hosted my wedding reception in that elegant hotel when middle-class Bengalis deemed holding them in hotels unorthodox and too expensive. He dreaded depending on relatives to buy foodstuff from the market, get it cooked, and serve it to finicky guests that nitpicked at trifling things to embarrass the host. You just told the hotel manager how many guests you expect and the day and time of the reception: making guests happy was their USP — right from the entry notice-board announcing: “Mr. and Mrs. Das welcome you to their son’s wedding reception in the Banquet Hall” and ending with ice-cream but ~ disappo ...

That the female of the species is deadlier than the male ! - Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling Justice October, 1918 Across a world where all men grieve And grieving strive the more, The great days range like tides and leave Our dead on every shore. Heavy the load we undergo, And our own hands prepare, If we have parley with the foe, The load our sons must bear. Before we loose the word That bids new worlds to birth, Needs must we loosen first the sword Of Justice upon earth; Or else all else is vain Since life on earth began, And the spent world sinks back again Hopeless of God and Man. A People and their King Through ancient sin grown strong, Because they feared no reckoning Would set no bound to wrong; But now their hour is past, And we who bore it find Evil Incarnate *** at last To answer to mankind. For agony and spoil Of nations beat to dust, For poisoned air and tortured soil And cold, commanded lust, And every secret woe The shuddering waters saw -- Willed and fulfilled by high and low -- Let them relearn the Law: That when the dooms are read, Not high nor low shall say: -- ...
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! - Rudyard Kipling

"And the Stute Fish said, If you swim to latitude Fifty North, longitude Forty West, you will find, sitting on a raft, in the middle of the sea, with nothing on but a pair of blue canvas breeches, a pair of suspenders (you must particularly not forget the suspenders, Best Beloved), and a jack knife, one ship-wrecked mariner, who, it is only fair to tell you, is a man of infinite resource and sagacity" 'How The Whale Got His Throat' Rudyard Kipling
"In 1888 Rudyard Kipling published a story within the book “In Black and White” titled “On the City Wall.” The first line of the one of the chapters in this story about a prostitute reads: “Lalun is a member of the most ancient profession in the world.” That appears to be the first time the phrase appears in print and it seems everyone believed him and has kept the myth of the oldest profession, alive ever since. The Emmy winning actor and well known voiceover talent Ed Herrman at an award show In his acceptance remarks he challenged the Kipling myth and said that he believed the oldest profession is actually storytelling."

The Pench Tiger Reserve is named after the Pench river, which flows from north to south through the Reserve. The Reserve is located in the southern reaches of the Satpura hill ranges in the Seoni and Chhindwara districts in the Madhya Pradesh state of India. The terrain is undulating, with most of the area covered by small hill ranges, steeply sloping on the sides. The Reserve is situated in an area that holds a significant place in the natural history of Central India. The description of its natural beauty, richness in flora and fauna has appeared in numerous wildlife books dating back to 17th century. Books written in the 19th and early 20th century by famous naturalists like Captain J. Forsyth and Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book explicitly present the detailed panorama of nature's abundance in this tract. An extensive forest belt extends in three directions, north, east and south, covering forest tracts of Seoni, Balaghat and Nagpur districts. The contiguous forest on the southern side in the Maharashtra ...

FOCUS “I disapprove of what you say, But your right to say it, I will defend until my death”, said Voltaire, the French philosopher. In an India of over 1200 million people with myriad kinds of dogmas, practices and beliefs, what Voltaire said centuries ago, always stood its test of time. Tolerance of one’s speech, practices and beliefs has always been the corner stone of the ‘Idea of India’. The debate on ‘Idea of India’ has been going on at different points of time almost continuously. Only because, there is no country like India in the entire world. There have been rightly many thinkers, not just Indians, but from across the global spectrum, who wrote, at times with disdain and more often with pleasure, at the exasperating diversity called India. While quoting Rudyard Kipling may be out of place in the present context, there are others who have been more kindly-critical and some very approbative. Writing on India, John Keay writes “India challenges the visitor like no other country. Vas ...

The birthday of Geoffrey Chaucer the first great English poet and author of The Canterbury Tales, is unknown, and so we instead remember him on the anniversary of his death, this day in the year 1400. He was buried in the south transept of Westminster Abbey in London, where he was a tenant and a member of the parish. Chaucer's fame increased after his death. He was called the "father of English poetry," and many other British poets began to be buried in the south transept of the abbey, which is now known as Poets' Corner. Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning, Charles Dickens, Samuel Johnson, and Rudyard Kipling are all buried here; and William Wordsworth, John Keats, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare all have memorials.

Alice Munro Wins The 2013 Nobel Prize For Literature Canadian author Alice Munro has won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature. Making the announcement, Peter Englund, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, called her a "master of the contemporary short story". The 82-year-old, whose books include Dear Life and Dance of the Happy Shades, is only the 13th woman to win the prize since its inception in 1901. "I knew I was in the running, yes, but I never thought I would win," Munro told Canadian media. Presented by the Nobel Foundation, the award - which is presented to a living writer - is worth eight million kronor (£770,000). Munro said in an interview that Dear Life would "probably" be her last book Previous winners include literary giants such as Rudyard Kipling, Toni Morrison and Ernest Hemingway. Mr Englund told The Associated Press that he had not been able to contact Munro ahead of the announcement so left a message on her answering machine, informing her of her win. "She has taken an art form, ...
Caspian Sea, central Asia; the new Great game with China as major energy player reports Al Jazeera China plays for energy in new Great Game Stalled decade-long negotiations with Russia have led China to go energy shopping around the Caspian Sea. Shanghai, China - Near the right bank of the Amu Darya River in Turkmenistan lies a sprawling complex that is the fruit of China's decade-long charm offensive in the hermetic state. Derricks erected in the bleak, forbidding desert extract natural gas from huge reservoirs underground. Pipes carry the gas to a plant, the largest and most advanced in Central Asia, where it is processed before being pumped more than 1,800 km east to China. The Amu Darya gas project, as it is known, is a testament to China's courtship of Central Asia - a region of increasing strategic and economic importance to Beijing. China is now a player in the latest round of the "Great Game" - a tag coined by Rudyard Kipling to describe the 19th-century rivalry between imperial Britain and Russia ...
I love Read-In Week - quite possibly my favourite week of the year. I visited three very different schools today: in total, I read to one grade 7 class, one grade 8 class, three grade 3 classes, two grade 4 classes, and one 5/6 split. On today's menu? The Cremation of Sam McGee, by Robert W. Service, The Lady or the Tiger, by Frank R. Stockton, The Elephant's Child, by Rudyard Kipling, Dirty Beasts, by Roald Dahl, and The Pumpkin Giant, by Mary Wilkins. By the end of it all, I was happy but hoarse, with a tremendous respect for Edmonton's teachers. I'll visit two more schools this week - but not till Thursday! At least I now get a day to rest up. My thanks to the wonderful students and staff at St. Edmund, Parkview and Laurier Heights - you were wonderful hosts and wonderful audiences.
Christabel Mary Melville Macnaghten (Fig. 1) was born on 12 December 1890. In 1899, when she was 9, she was best friends with Josephine, daughter of Rudyard Kipling, and Kipling wrote a poem “The Way Through the Woods” after talking with the young Christabel about the New Forest [2]. At age 19, Christabel married Henry Duncan “Harry” McLaren (1879-1953), son of Charles McLaren (1850-1934), a Scottish Liberal politician and jurist. In 1880, Charles was elected to the British House of Commons. In 1877 he married Laura Pochin who in 1895 inherited the Bodnant Estate on the River Conwy in Wales, twelve miles northeast of Bangor. In 1902 Charles became Sir Charles McLaren, Baronet of Bodnant. In 1911 he was created Baron Aberconway by Lloyd George for political services. He chose “Aberconway” because it is Welsh for “at the mouth of the Conwy.” Harry became a successful industrialist and between 1920 and 1922, had constructed at 38 South Street in Mayfair, London, a neo-Georgian mansion of 22,7 ...
OK, so Orson Scott Card was never Rudyard Kipling in terms of his writing, but I loved his imagination 20 years ago; I have most of his books. So it's sad to see him go off the rails into right-wing paranoid fantasies. To me he's another Kipling: brilliant, but his earlier, truly powerful work being overwhelmed by the crap he's spilling out later in life via his non-fiction outlets (his fiction's been getting kinda weird lately too, honestly, and not in a good way). Then again, I also have plenty of friends who have left-wing paranoid fantasies, so there's that. Still... sad.

I have been very critical on here of Ed Millibean. Now, however, I have to say he has gone up in my estimation. The Daily Mail needs to be out in its place. We are rather reminded of the Mail's campaign to oust Stanley Baldwin as leader of the Tory party in 1931, following his unexpected defeat in the 1929 election. The paper put up a candidate against the Tory candidate, Duff Cooper, in the Westminster St. George by-election of March 1931. At a public meeting in Queen's Hall, Baldwin took on the press, as no leading politician since has done, with words probably written by his cousin Rudyard Kipling. " What the press were "aiming at (was) power, and power without responsibility--the prerogative of the harlot through the ages." As an aged Prebendary student of mine once said to me, "Baldwin was a man of principle." Indeed. And so is Mr. Milliband, apparently, following a quite inappropriate attack on his father, a rather tossery Marxist scholar who famously argued that the Labour party could have done mor ...
STOCKHOLM, Oct 04 (BSS/AFP) - Who is the oldest Nobel laureate, and who is the youngest? How many women have won a Nobel? How many married couples? Here are some of the answers, based on the Nobel Foundation's figures. - The oldest laureate to win a Nobel was Russian-born American Leonid Hurwicz, who was 90 years of age when he won the economics prize in 2007. He lived only a few months longer, passing away in June 2008. - In 2007 British author Doris Lessing became the oldest winner of the literature prize, aged 87 when her name was announced. Lessing later described winning the award as a "catastrophe" because it left her no time to write. - British laureate Lawrence Bragg, who won the physics prize in 1915, was 25 years old when he won and remains the youngest laureate in the history of the prizes.

Robert Frost's snowy walk tops Radio 4 count of nation's favourite poems Polls to discover the nation's favourite poem have traditionally crowned Rudyard Kipling's If as No 1, while TS Eliot has been hailed as the greatest poet, but now an audit of the poems most-requested on BBC Radio 4's Poetry Please has found that US poet Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is the piece that listeners most want to hear. Programme producer Tim Dee has totted up every poem featured on the programme since it began in 1979, to produce a list of the most popular. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening has been read out 17 times in the show's 35 years on air. Dee said: "The number of broadcasts is a direct ratio to the number of requests, so it's the one that people are most asking to listen to. It was a surprise. It's humanly thwarted, not getting to where it wants to get to, and there's that wonderful opening out at the end, like a prayer or a meditation; it speaks of human vulnerability.

Unit 1 Print Media Print Media is the term used to define the collection and periodic publication of news through medium such as newspapers, or magazines. Print media is a rather commonly used term referring to the medium that disseminates printed matter. It’s an intermediate communicative channel aiming at reaching a large number of people. Until radio and TV became popular in the 20th century, print media had a monopoly on news, but by the time the century closed, a new medium--the Internet--loomed as a new threat. In everyday life print media is referred to as the industry associated with the printing and mostly with the distribution of news through a network of media, such as newspapers and journals. Print media is popularly referred to simply as "Press". Types of Print Media. 1) Newspapers: A newspaper is a scheduled publication containing news of current events, informative articles, diverse features, editorials, and advertising. 2) Magazines: Magazines are publications that are printed with ink o ...
Rudyard Kipling once painted his golf balls red so he could play in the snow!
More of the Just-So story (Rudyard Kipling) about how the Elephant got its Trunk. Conrad Taylor might enjoy. That very next morning, when there was nothing left of the Equinoxes, because the Precession had preceded according to precedent, this 'satiable Elephant's Child took a hundred pounds of bananas (the little short red kind), and a hundred pounds of sugar-cane (the long purple kind), and seventeen melons (the greeny-crackly kind), and said to all his dear families, 'Goodbye. I am going to the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River, all set about with fever-trees, to find out what the Crocodile has for dinner.' And they all spanked him once more for luck, though he asked them most politely to stop.
I have been writing since I was a child, got heavily involved in it as a teenager and then took a break for much of my adulthood. Over the last few years I have gotten back into writing, exploring poetry and other types. I am a dark poetess, who writes a variety of things from twisted takes on fairy tales to simple poems of sadness and loss. I am into hardcore music, classic rock, heavy and writing are my sanity, they have been my life source for many years. Edgar Allan Poe is a constant inspiration and my favorite poet, followed by Jim Morrison. I also draw from the works of Rudyard Kipling, Longfellow, Stephen King and many other authors. Archived MP of the Month = Wai Young May 2011This month's MP of the Month is Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP, Wai Young. Young was chosen on the basis of how she conducted her campaign in the 2011 Canadian Federal General Election. Accusations include her endorsement by a man (Ripudaman Singh Malik) who stood trial in the Air India terror bombings, and violating the Elections Act. You can read more here regarding this story that was carried by all the national and local media outlets.Young claims ignorance about Mr. Ripudaman Singh Malik, stating that she was unaware of his history. Unaware of the history of the most infamous man in Canadian and British Columbian history? Really? Has Young been in a coma for the past 25 years? Or, is she just not credible as she brushes off any associations with this man who has admitted links to the Air India bombers? It is one or the other, unless she is just that plain ignorant of Canadian current events and history. Either way, are these the quali ...

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." – Rudyard Kipling

father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter. ~Euripides A daughter is a gift of love. ~Author Unknown A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life. ~Irish Saying Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express. ~Joseph Addison Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla. ~Jim Bishop A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart. ~Author Unknown Daughter am I in my mother's house, but mistress in my own. ~Rudyard Kipling A mother's treasure is her daughter. ~Catherine Pulsifer, Inspirational Words of Wisdom A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend. ~Author Unknown How the mother is to be pitied who hath handsome daughters!

"Now it is not good for the Christian's health to hustle the Arian brown For the Christian riles and the Arian smiles, and it weareth the Christian down And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased And the epitaph drear: 'A Fool lies here, who tried to hustle the East.'" Rudyard Kipling
For God and the soldier we adore, In time of danger, not before! The danger passed, and all things righted, God is forgotten and the soldier slighted." - Rudyard Kipling
HISTORY LESSON: You're a Patriot? Listen up, please, Tommy Robinson and English Defence League! Listen up, please Nick Griffin, Sir, of British National Party--do you Know what Culture you're defending? More than flag-waving, queuing, Pounds, Shillings and Pence, and tea-drinking. Remember The British Empire? Our Regal Imperialist past, when we ruled India, Pakistan, Australia, and The New World-under the Reign of Queen Victoria? Remember Rudyard Kipling? What happened to that Empire? Why did we lose it? Turned OUR BACKS ON GOD! When it was no longer cool to love The Lord Jesus Christ, that's when Patriotism became 'The Last Refuge of The Scoundrel'! Plus the terrible trauma and devastation of The Great War, meant that the common man--and woman--lost Faith. I mention it because a Strong Faith--in God, as well as King/Queen and Country --was all part and parcel of British Culture, of Great Britain. Marxists cannot be believers, because they are 'dialectical materialists'--and Marxism proudly boasts that .. ...

Some die saintly in faith and hope-- One died thus in a prison-yard-- Some die broken by rape or the rope; Some die easily. This dies hard. Some die quietly. Some abound In loud self-pity. Others spread Bad morale through the cots around . This is a type that is better dead. - Rudyard Kipling

“If a person’s scale of values is based primarily on material wealth, that person will be in difficulty all of his or her life. Do not pay much attention to fame, power and money. Some day you will meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you will know how poor you are.” --Rudyard Kipling addressing the graduates of McGill University in Montreal
