And Gutenberg Lived Here: Hula In The Snow For Your Health.

Friday, coming home from conducting, the BEAST hit. Well, actually, it was more like a beastlet. Or a beasturtium, or a beastiary conundrum. Why? It hit with a flurry, dropped about a foot of snow, then brought its little brother for a visit, melting everything the beasti beastorum had dropped. Leaving us with wet Saturday … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Hula In The Snow For Your Health.

And Gutenberg Lived Here: 1000-Watt Sunshine, And Fish By The Net-full

It's cold here in Gutenberg Land. So cold that it's almost disgusting that the sunshine is at the thousand-Watt, sunburn through the frost level, and most people aren't out in it. Most people meaning: the beautiful Rhine pathway is freezing- we were smart enough to take double strong peppermint tea in a "senator thermos." Small, … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: 1000-Watt Sunshine, And Fish By The Net-full

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Sunday In The Land Of Celts And Teutonics

In a recent "And Gutenberg Lived Here" blog, I talked about Sunday morning in the land of Celts and Teutonics. We have a huge population of celtic ancestry here- Stonehenge-like builders from way back, (they were here before they went to GB or Ireland) and the result on the populace is visible. Those Gutenberger descended … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Sunday In The Land Of Celts And Teutonics

And Gutenberg Lived Here: The Sigh Of The Corn

I miss the sigh of the corn a lot, living over here in Gutenberg Land- that soft sound when the summer is really far along, the sky is soft blue, the air is hot hot hot, and, as you walk through the seven-foot stalks in the field, there is just a tiny moment of wind, … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: The Sigh Of The Corn

Dragons’ Breath, Writers’ Breath, Save Your Breath.

What is it about breath that makes people so flip out they haven't got any to spare? If you look at the Chinese medicine 5 element system:¬† wood, fire, water, metal, earth, add in the air from Earth, Wind, and Fire, and you get: our body's warmed-air-breathing plus blood circulation. aka survival. Cool. In, out, … Continue reading Dragons’ Breath, Writers’ Breath, Save Your Breath.

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Residuum On A Bed Of Rocket

Whoever would have guessed that when I made a quick end run around the leftovers in the fridge today, -hey, we made it through the weekend- with guests- what more do you want? that I would. on a Tuesday, be: One: making a huge ¬†statement as part of the flash movement ie of the millions … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Residuum On A Bed Of Rocket

And Gutenberg Lived Here: And What Would YOU Do When You Heard The Words “Paleo- Flirting?”

I admit it. I'm an unashamed people-watcher. And people-wonderer. As in: Sitting peacefully in a cafe, English tea with milk in hand, to the chagrin of every German barista ever trained- except at McDonald's- I overheard two rather loud women at the next table saying: "I swear, I heard it on tv last night. " … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: And What Would YOU Do When You Heard The Words “Paleo- Flirting?”

And Miss Phryne Fisher Lived Here: Nuts, Bolts, Sex, And Moolah

Sorry, but I just couldn't pass this one up: apparently, Melbourne, that's in Australian, is right in the middle of their yearly so-called sex-po, a trade fair for the erotic trades, this year featuring: get ready, this is really good- ta da- pole-dancing robots. yes, you heard me right- pole dancing robots. And the gigabit … Continue reading And Miss Phryne Fisher Lived Here: Nuts, Bolts, Sex, And Moolah

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Invisible Watches, Body Heat, And The Real Dr Who

I read an article today that absolutely fascinated me: A smart watch that runs on body heat. Totally. I kid you not. The heat produced by your body, and escaping through your skin, assuming you are a normal, warm-blooded being, is enough to run a very sophisticated smart watch. AND... store enough energy in the … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Invisible Watches, Body Heat, And The Real Dr Who

And Gutenberg Lived Here: Pokemon Go. Away.

One of my relatives is Pokemon mad. Which I assume, from the little bit of reading I did on it, has something to do with Californian culture and Japanese cartoons. Nuff said. What I didn't figure on, especially in these days of news programs filled with violence and killings, Brexit, and, in general, unbelievably stupid … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Pokemon Go. Away.
