This week all the hoopla started for the release of the new Tarzan film. With champagne dinner and gala premiere. I assume in white tie and loin cloth. And since it is school vacation here, the kids, privy to such info faster than we are, are sitting in the trees and practicing the Tarzan yell. … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Of Tarzan, La Brea, And The New Mastadons.
The Big Hundred
I've been thinking all week about how I'm going to handle today's not so ordinary blog. Since, Ta da Today is The big one-o-o. At least for wordpress. Not that I don't write other things, or that a hundred blogs is all that special- especially when some of the people I read have been blogging … Continue reading The Big Hundred
And Gutenberg Lived Here: Does That Sleigh Have Brake Lights, Mr Claus?
When you decide, out of some strange form of craziness, probably having to do with musicians' overwork, due to the holiday season, to take part in a project to write on a pre-fixed topic,, somehow you know that: no matter what the topic was SUPPOSED to be, it will turn out different than you thought, … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Does That Sleigh Have Brake Lights, Mr Claus?
Of Shavians, Diets, And Oat Cuisine
A couple of days ago, I got in a discussion with a very interesting, and down-to-earth writer, GrannyMar Who writes of memories, joyful moments, and with a downright respect of solid and decent food. That got me thinking. Standard in our home, was always a simple, honest meal of tomatoes, cottage cheese, beans, and applesauce. … Continue reading Of Shavians, Diets, And Oat Cuisine
Uncomfortable Situations: And If You Thought THAT Was Bizarre…
The Helmsley, aka Writers' Den, hint for this week is: Uncomfortable situations. Hmmm... In my life? Where to start. Sleeping: A mother, father, three kids, two dogs, cat, canary, and the chicken... defrosting in the sink and dragged over, and into the bed, by the cat. Probably in case we get hungry in the night. … Continue reading Uncomfortable Situations: And If You Thought THAT Was Bizarre…

I got a note today from the Writers's Den that they want me and a whole lot of other people, I suspect, to write on A Forest In Winter. Why not? I wood therefore I am. So anyway, there are a lot of forests out there: actors: Forest Whitaker Forrest Tucker both fun to watch … Continue reading A Winter of Forests In Winter
And Gutenberg Lived Here: Sunday In The Park With George
"White. A blank page or canvas. The challenge: bring order to the whole, through design, composition, tension, balance, light, and harmony." Sunday in the Park With George. The musical. by Stephen Sondheim. Based on the George Seurat painting "Afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte." Both have always fascinated me. Singly. But what fascinates me … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Sunday In The Park With George

As most of the people who read my blog know, I'm married to a mathematician. Gasp That implies two things. One: at every party if you want to talk to someone you have to circulate. Alone. And two: If you are a at a party, unless you happen to be hosting it yourself, everyone there … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Geek Humor And Me
Synesthesia: Not wasting Human Resources
Some time ago I suggested, and wrote a piece for the FLBC on, a topic that has always fascinated me: synesthesia. With the idea in mind that, since everyone has something that sets him apart, some kind of special talent, or gift, or just an innate goodness that the world needs more of today, we … Continue reading Synesthesia: Not wasting Human Resources
And Gutenberg Lived Here: Favorite Book or Film?
I admit it. I'm a book junky. I read them in all places, at all times of the day or night. Tea and books were made for each other. They almost make up for all the junk you have to do till you get to that point in your day. And as for books, bathtubs, … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Favorite Book or Film?
