And the next line, thanks to a beautiful medieval song from about 1261, is "loudly sing cucco." Yup. Those medieval birds were definitely loud. And knew how to sing. And enjoy the fact that summer was coming. And the people who sang it also. So why Summer is a-comin in, now, "amid the snows of … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Sumer Is Icumin In
It's freezing here. And grey. And the local doctors, life coaches, night education classes and sun studios are doing a booming business in winter depression cures. Not helped along much by the fact the local carnival clubs have all called it a day until February, at least, to make room for the six weeks, now … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: From Death to Christmas- Pass The Chocolate.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the first words ever made- The words sent out. And let flow into the earth, Where they mixed with tungsten, And lead, And all the other earthly elements, Until a particular mix was formed That held them solidly in place, And allowed everyone to feel the power of … Continue reading And We All Lived Here: Have You Ever Wondered?
I don't know what it is about Fridays- Maybe it's just the fact that since everyone else is on the road that day, in up to two-hour traffic jams, or has picked up their kids from school at one pm and are at McD's, before trying to shove the tykes into winter boots for school, … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Just Call Me Friday

And one for the doctor. And one for the dentist. Where I don't have to go so often, thank heavens, but … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Did The Romans Have Vampires?

(Probably more so … Continue reading And Erasmus Lived Here: On Ghostbusting, And “Best Local Food? At The Top Of The Funicular.”
Last weekend one of those special family holidays snuck up on us- the type that here in Gutenberg land is called a "round birthday" and always celebrated as an "event" of the kind where you need to rent the San Francisco Cow Palace, invite everyone you call friend, and, here at Gutenberg U, your area … Continue reading And Erasmus Lived Here: Of Alemannics, Catholics, And Long-Short Reds.
Saturday, after the usual twenty-seven crises and forty-two errands, we decided we had had enough. And took the car, drove through the city of Gutenberg since the bridge across the river near us still isn't functioning right, resulting in three-hour traffic jams (for a twelve-minute trip) headed across the Roman-built Theodore Heuss bridge, up the … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: John Adams, Abigail Adams, Gomez Addams
