Eskimo Love Song

You are my husband, you are my wife
My feet shall run because of you
My feet dance because of you
My heart shall beat because of you
My eyes see because of you
My mind thinks because of you
And I shall love, because of you.

Three Butterflies

I strode long a private way,
Where new petal, bud, and fragrant bloom laid,
Off minor perch three golden butterflies rose,
To dance, and loop ahead in ragged churns,
My guilt for their trouble made,
Was lost when they my friendship chose,
As their sentinel my share was paid,
Along the path four boundless souls,
Kept in band during nature’s go.

My older brother starting catching/releasing butterflies when he was three years old.

thank you Canada


Undoubtedly the final leg of the 2016 MLS eastern final (Montreal at Toronto) was one of the greatest soccer matches of all time, and  anywhere. The ball was contested over the entire pitch, all the players strained at the max  for every minute of play. We were riveted in our seats literally with bated breath. The fans were  emotionally spent and physically drained at the final whistle.

Facts about the early Celts

The name Celt originated with the ancient Greeks, who called the barbarian peoples of central Europe Keltoi. The Celts were a broad cultural-linguistic group. The Celts were never an empire ruled by one government.

Celtic society there was not a rigid class system imposed by birth.



Clann is a Gaelic word that means children. A clan is a family, descended from some notable individual, often bearing his name. The currant clan chief, who is the prime descendant of the founder, is nominally the father of the whole clan, having moral authority over all its members.

The general impression from all sources of evidence designates the Celtic aristocratic society as being tall, physically powerful men and women with fair or reddish hair, grey-blue eyes, light skins, oval faces, and fresh complexions.

The Celts were a very clean people, using soap long before the Romans did. The Celtic men and women of Britain sometimes wore swirling blue tattoos or paintings on their bodies.

Humor in Marriage

The best way to get most husbands to do something is to suggest that perhaps they're too old to do it. - Ann Bancroft

Any husband who says. "My wife and I are completely equal partners," is talking about either a law firm or a hand of bridge. - Bill Cosby

My mother buried three husbands, and two of them were just napping. - Rita Rudner


The Hawk (not the Hoff)


the media feeds on him like pigeons on popcorn, hoping for some amazing new idea every couple of weeks; something outlandish, totally speculative, and scary,  such as, if aliens visit us they are more likely to eat us than help us;  black holes might not be so bad; and most recently, humanity has 1000 years left, at most.
Let me relate the suggestion of a friend of mine - do you ever wonder if he's effing with us?
Seriously dude!
