Add the eggs and beat. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Stir this mixture into the batter. I was recently listening, via satellite radio, to a discussion of the new Narnia movies. One of the discussants was an atheist who had enjoyed the books as a child but felt the author was cheating by smuggling Christianity into his story without providing due warning to the reader.
I too am an atheist.I too enjoyed the Narnia books as a child. I too did not spot the close analogy to Christianity when I first read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Unlike the discussant, I regard that as a feature, not a bug. One of the things good writers do is to present ideas in an unfamiliar context, permitting their readers to experience them without the usual intellectual baggage. I already know why I believe that Christianity is wrong.
What I want to understand is why lots of people, including lots of intelligent and reasonable people, believe it is right.
Which brings me to a question for my readers.All damned day, and most of yesterday, the earworm has been none other than "Waterloo" by frickin' ABBA.
I'm so ashamed.Even a successful Wikipedia safari find doesn't drive it out of my head. Damn. Shoot me now. Labels: earworms, heh, life interfering with fun. See the full article here. A selected excerpt:Government leaders will need to take a "shock-and-awe" approach towards the economy as indicators show a worsening recession, Mohamed El-Erian, co-CEO of the Pimco bond fund, said Friday. Do people like El-Erian actually think before speaking? Do they think at all? Perhaps not thinking is a luxury that only the very rich can afford?A leading bond fund manager is asked for his views on how U. S. How will he answer? One might hope that the experienced sage will draw on the lessons learned from past interventions in the U. S. and elsewhere. Both consciously and unconsciously he explored the furtherest reaches of musical possibility. He was one of the strangest phenomena that ever existed in music, and he returns to us again and again. Ashkenazy plays the Black Mass Sonata:Horowitz plays Sonata no. Last year we never saw our roses, though everyone said they were very good. The roses are past the best of their first flush, but it's still been nice to see them – the climbers at the back… and the bushes at the front. That last has the most amazing, deep, rich scent. You can perhaps see the rain-drops on the petals. We're not sure yet how the weather might affect our plans for what we do with the boys. We'll spend some time on Erin Mae, not least because they're eventually flying back home from Manchester, but might need to curtail that if it's still raining a lot at the end of next week. Saturday. Quiet & caressing, like a soft shawl enveloping the shoulders. A few bubbling weeks behind filled with photography work for clients & meetings with the best ladies, clutching on our steaming coffees while jotting down plans on paper that tingle through the whole body. The joy of falling, quite by chance, serendipitously, in the middle of a little group with a bit of a mission, everyone with different skills, but with the same pulsating heart. But on this quiet & caressing Saturday, wrapped in layers of soft greys, I rest in between. A new, blank page of Sanctuary always beckons - no need to think for others, no need to get worked up about writer’s block, it doesn’t matter at all if the words don’t flow. Images, feeling & somehow connecting with you are what count. Your insights are the focus of the sessions. Our guest humanities scholars act as guides, leading discussion about how the books inform and enrich our lives. The library has limited copies of the books to loan at no charge. Mad Women in the Attic As In the Western Literary tradition, the mad woman in the attic has proven to be a convenient symbol for unconventional women who attempted to resist the patriarchal system. The mad woman was contained indoors—often in the attic—as treatment for her “disease” or madness. In reality, women oftentimes were driven mad by these oppressive conditions. However, alternative readings of the books in this series offer possible revisions of the mad woman in the attic with positive implications for readers. My theme in a talk entitled "Critical Thinking on Building Trusted, Transformative Medical Information: Improving Health IT as the First Step" was health IT trust and safety. More on my presentation later. In the meantime, I returned to the U. S. It's kind of like buying a used car.
You have to drive it a few months to see what's right or wrong with it.Bush even decimated his own party. A real stink bomb. Let's hope we can get out of this mess in a few years.
Things don't look good.
At least we don't have Bush anymore.The lads worked hard this morning trying to create better views over the new scrape. Thanks go to everyone especially Chris Wharton Lovett for the chainsaw work he did. Work continues in the marsh, but more of that from my boss Russ Boland later. .
