A Little Spanish Night Music

Posted on May 20, 2019 at 9:49am 19 Comments

We were at the home of friends last night .  Rosa Icela is Mexican, born in Tijuana, and her husband is a Georgia boy who was stationed in San Diego where he met her.  She treated us and other guests, most of whom we knew, to a Mexican dinner.  It was sort of “Tex-Mex” with a decided improvement in flavors: tacos and pico de gallo. Dessert was something I had never had: cheese with candied quince.  After dinner we sat out on their deck on the top of one of the mountains here enjoying the…

Insomnia

 

The origin of the word, insomnia, is from Latin in- (without) + somnis (sleep).  Etymologists remark on the varied meanings of the prefix “in-“ with the formation of, in some cases, opposite meanings for the same or similar words.  Similarly, they remark on the use of a number of different consonant endings for the meaning “not or without” such as ir-, il- and ig-: and, by the substitution of u- or e- for I- in some cases. Un- is usually used for native words, and i-…

State Abortion Bans

Posted on May 10, 2019 at 2:09pm 6 Comments

 

Several states have passed onerous anti-abortion bills nicknamed “heart beat bills” in an effort to force a Supreme Court decision to overthrow Roe v. Wade.

Georgia just passed one, and Alabama is considering one that, if passed, will be the most restrictive bill yet.  A version passed the Alabama House, but…

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
