Ferdly is fabulous!
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
Interesting aside, the Rosetta Stone, which provided Jean-Francios Champollion the hard data to reconstruct a meaning for hieroglyphics, was of a part of an obelisk called a stela which posted officials decrees.
Very Nice Reginald. Thank you.
You are very sweet, Mimi. Thanks for listening. Go to the free tab and give The “Little Girl and the Stream” audiobook a listen… Reggie
The top of the Washington monument is crowned with a pyramid ion of made of what was at the time, the most precious metal in the world. Aluminum.
Reflects well too!
Engaging, thought provoking, educational and easy to digest!
Thank you Reggie.
I appreciate the photographs and the historical narrative.
You travel, I learn.
An intriguing and poignant mix of current nonfiction, past fiction, and sweet Tomorrowland plans to make. Big fans here!
Munfordville, KY….Who knew there were so many species, types of mussels….all would be good in a garlicky wine butter sauce. Seriously, very interesting and informative. 👍🏽👍🏽
“We are all, in one way or another, the children of Jules Verne.” – said Ray Bradbury.
“The universe is a big place, perhaps the biggest.”- Kurt Vonnegut
Another fine article Sir. You write, I learn.
We learn together!
Viva La France or Verne. Loved it
Very well done, and very helpful in understanding what’s going on and what went on back in 1918 and how similar our two battles are. Thank you!
Thanks so much. In trying to find my own bead on the current tyranny of information (& Trumped-up misinformation), I researched how many in my own family fell to the 1918 pandemic. Just one, that I can confirm, the most creative, a musician, named for a Shakespearian character. Her granddaughter sent boxes of genealogical data, to clear her closets and shed the weight of family history. You’re right-on about the hubris of our era. None of us stand at a pinnacle, but are borne along a tide with all the rest of (known) life. As a member of CRT, I hope to chat in person one day. For now, I’ll hunker down on this hillside, circled by Hoosier Nat. Forest, and walk around the pond for its therapeutic effect. And garden. And sew facemasks to send friends working in senior healthcare sites. And Zoom with my adult kids. And crave time with my 4-month old g-girl!
WOW!!! Good for you!
Excellent my good friend.
Excellent podcast my friend.
Great job describing a complex subject, and with humor as usual! Thanks!
Just great!!! Sounding good too!!!
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”
Love it… but who’s the beardless guy in the black shirt on the guitar? 😉
Some history of Kentucky in “one glorious summary.”
The chord progressions in this song have become favorites of mine.
I play them every week in various keys, usually in very slow tempo and sometimes with harmonicas.
Thank you for sharing this rockabilly version.
It is especially nice with two favorite musicians, Paul and Tom.
I don’t try to sing this but I do love the the lyrics and the Kentucky history.
One line which has baffled me somewhat is “from the Blockhouse they would come.”
I suspect this refers to the blockhouse that was at Fort Harrod?
Thanks, Darrell, I was thinking of several stockades, Stamford, Harrod and Painted Stone
