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
Since, as a singer, you almost never know where you are going to be, and when you are going to be there, and since I am married to a mathematician, to whom a vacation consists of a conference near Disneyworld, (with one day layover) or Colorado Springs (conference plus four days of beautiful mountain hiking) … Continue reading And Gutenberg Lived Here: Why Is There A Plane In The Honeymoon Suite
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.
