Invaders, patriots and entitlements

 
Frank White

A basic principle of war is that a combatant will fight most fiercely when protecting his home. Failure to weigh that axiom has depleted many powers over the centuries.

When building a house last year, we positioned it so that it was enveloped by the trees. We believed we were staking our claim and had the registered deed to prove it.

The natives, however, saw things differently. They had been there for generations and we were invading their home.

We were somewhat benevolent as we provided provisions for the natives through the winter and into the spring. The natives began to see our provisions as entitlements as summer came on. Why should they labor when adequate resources were provided?

When efforts were made to regulate the supply and monitor the recipients, things turned ugly. «Read the rest of this article»

Early childhood development spans the ages.

 

Have you ever sat and watched as an elderly woman bounces a bright eye baby on her knee? Have you observed how she wraps her aged hands around the soft newness of the young hands and brings them together in a game of Pat-a-Cake? This timeless game of baby bonding has spanned generations and brought laughter to young and old.

The earliest mention was found in Thomas D’ Urfey’s play The Campaigners from 1698. In 1765 it was written in the following format for the  Nursery book Mother Goose Melody.

Patty Cake, Patty Cake,
Baker’s Man;
That I will Master,
As fast as I can;
Prick it and prick it,
And mark it with a T,
And there will be enough for Jacky and me.

Of course, each generation and each culture had its own version of this little rhyme making it their own. What your Grandmother may not have known was that she was teaching her infant important fine motor skills. When you take your baby’s hands and bring them together where they touch you are not only working the developing muscles in their arms but you are nurturing hand-eye coordination. «Read the rest of this article»

Add a little humor to your life

 

smile

Humor in Uniform is a favorite section in the Reader’s Digest.  Having served as a soldier and Army Chaplain, for 20 years, in time of peac and for two years of war in Vietnam, I appreciate recognition given our soldiers, even if its humorous.Being rather serious and solemn by nature, I have a psychological need for entertainment, especially humor.  I meet this need for balance for jocularity by selecting cheerful TV programs to watch while exercising at the Athletic Club. When I get there early enough, I’ll watch my all time favorite, M.A.S.H. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Conan O’Brien hosts Doyle and Debbie parody with Clarksville’s Jenny Littleton

 

Doyle and Debbie Show Do you love country music? Me neither.

From the Country Music capitol of Nashville, Tennessee, comes the Doyle and Debbie show (Live Theatre) with song favorites such as Whine Whine Twang Twang, When You’re Screwing Other Women (Think of Me), Stock Car Love, Barefoot and Pregnant, I Ain’t No Homo (But Man You Sure Look Good to Me), Daddy’s Hair and so much more.

Performed by Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton, who is a native of Clarksville, the show has been an overwhelming success. That success comes to late night television tonight via the Conan O’Brien show (10:30 CST). The show precedes their appearance the next night at the midtown Manhattan B. B. King’s.

Littleton is talented as usual, using her coyly flexible voice to solid comic effect even when she’s singing things straight-ahead. Arntson is often flat-out brilliant, inhabiting his frighteningly lifelike character with a passion and intensity worthy of the country entertainers he lampoons. His tongue-twisting delivery of the show’s closing number is masterful.” —Nashville Scene «Read the rest of this article»

 


The Pour House Café

 

Larry Dunlap

The Pour House Café is your typical small town café you find in most every little town in the U.S. The once white frame building sits on the corner of highway 41A and Slipknot Road. It is the place where problems are solved, gossip is started and grease is consumed. 

Square foot for square foot more characters eat here than most any place south of Mayberry. 

Things were busy at the Cafe Sunday. «Read the rest of this article»
