  • Merkle's Boner refers to the notorious baserunning gaffe committed by rookie Fred Merkle of the New York Giants in a game against the Chicago Cubs in 1908. Merkle's failure to advance to second base on what should have been a game-winning hit led instead to a forceout at second and a tie game.

America, 1908: The Dawn of Flight, the Race to the Pole, the Invention of the Model T, and the Making of a Modern Nation



A captivating look at a bygone era through the lens of a single, surprisingly momentous American year one century ago. 1908 was the year Henry Ford launched the Model T, the Wright Brothers proved to the world that they had mastered the art of flight, Teddy Roosevelt decided to send American naval warships around the globe, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series (a feat they have never yet repeated), and six automobiles set out on an incredible 20,000 mile race from New York City to Paris via the frozen Bering Strait.
A charming and knowledgeable guide, Rasenberger takes readers back to a time of almost limitless optimism, even in the face of enormous inequality, an era when the majority of Americans believed that the future was bound to be better than the past, that the world’s worst problems would eventually be solved, and that nothing at all was impossible. As Thomas Edison succinctly said that year, “Anything, everything is possible.”

Bradman Museum 16 January 05 2010




Bradman Museum 16 January 05 2010





Sir Donald George Bradman, AC (27 August 1908 – 25 February 2001), often referred to as The Don, was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time.[1] Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been claimed to be statistically the greatest achievement in any major sport.[2]

The story that the young Bradman practised alone with a cricket stump and a golf ball is part of Australian folklore.[3] Bradman's meteoric rise from bush cricket to the Australian Test team took just over two years. Before his 22nd birthday, he had set many records for high scoring, some of which still stand, and became Australia's sporting idol at the height of the Great Depression.

During a 20-year playing career, Bradman consistently scored at a level that made him, in the words of former Australia captain Bill Woodfull, "worth three batsmen to Australia".[4] A controversial set of tactics, known as Bodyline, was specifically devised by the England team to curb his scoring. As a captain and administrator Bradman was committed to attacking, entertaining cricket; he drew spectators in record numbers. He hated the constant adulation, however, and it affected how he dealt with others. The focus of attention on his individual performances strained relationships with some team-mates, administrators and journalists, who thought him aloof and wary.[5] Following an enforced hiatus, due to the Second World War, he made a dramatic comeback, captaining an Australian team known as "The Invincibles" on a record-breaking unbeaten tour of England.

A complex, highly driven man, not given to close personal relationships,[6] Bradman retained a pre-eminent position in the game by acting as an administrator, selector and writer for three decades following his retirement. Even after he became reclusive in his declining years his opinion was highly sought, and his status as a national icon was still recognised—more than 50 years after his retirement as a Test player, in 2001, the Australian Prime Minister John Howard called him the "greatest living Australian".[7] Bradman's image has appeared on postage stamps and coins, and he was the first living Australian to have a museum dedicated to his life. On the centenary of his birth, 27 August 2008, the Royal Australian Mint issued a $5 commemorative gold coin with his image.[8]

On 19 November 2009, Sir Don Bradman was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.[9]

Australia Stamp.
Centenary of Scouting in Australia - Datestamped First Day Cover with Stamp Set
?? (??): 33.00


This set of three stamps mark the Centenary of Scouting in Australia from 1908 to 2008.

The centenary of the Scouting movement was celebrated worldwide in 2007 marking the first experimental camp for 20 boys at Brownsea Island, England in August 1907. The founder of Scouting, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, used the opportunity to test his ideas for an outdoor education program that "developed pluck, intelligence, initiative, and a spirit of adventure". The success of this initiative led to two publications: Scouting for Boys and Scout both appearing in instalments in 1908. Scouting quickly spread around the world and the arrival of these pamphlets in Australia led to the rapid development of scouting in this country.

The 50 cent stamp depicts Joeys, Cubs and Scouts in an action shot that highlights the resourcefulness and teamwork sentiment so strong within the Scouting culture. The international stamps feature a more global image that depicts the goodwill of Scouts from around the world including an Australian Scout in an orange shirt, and a commemorative profile of international founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell.

America, 1908






The 2005 Ashes series was the most eagerly anticipated for decades. Not since 1989 had the famous urn left the hands of the all-conquering Australians, and with England in the ascendant after a string of Test successes, hopes were high that the balance of power in world cricket would at last shift.
The series did not disappoint. From the rip-roaring first day at Lord's, with seventeen wickets falling, it was clear we were in for something special. Although the visitors went onto win that match England bounced back with a spectacular win at Edgbaston, and further nailbiting finishes followed at Old Trafford, Trent Bridge and The Oval. In this sparkling account of an amazing summer, England's coach Duncan Fletcher reveals the strategies, the stresses and successes of one of the greatest series in the history of the game.

rainbow bracelet




rainbow bracelet





The look of this bracelet is that of “Antique” colours. I have carefully chosen beads whose colours and patterns conjure up images of bygone days.

The beads used to make the rainbow of charms are mainly glass and semi-precious stones. Please note: as the latter are from second hand jewellery i can only make an educated guess as to the exact stone type; ie aventurine (rather than jade) and sodalite (rather than lapis). The lapis lazuli chips I can identify as I bought the original piece they were on!

The charms include the following; pale yellow and green vintage glass beads, green gemstone (aventurine, i believe), two ceramic hand-painted beads, green glass “boiled fruit drop”, amber glass rounds, asymmetric beads and column bead, red plastic faceted bead, red gemstone chips (i believe garnet), red glass beads, purple glass and cats eye beads, lapis lazuli chips, royal blue and turquoise blue glass beads, blue gemstone rounds (i think sodalite rather than lapis). A very unusual collection of beads!

The gold-tone chain is 6.5 inches / 17cm long and closed with a flower toggle clasp (adds approx 1 inch to the length).

Gold Dew Leaf Necklace




Gold Dew Leaf Necklace





Length: 22 inches
Materials: Pure Silver, 24kt Gold, 14k Gold Fill

This little leaf is made of pure silver and then "dusted" with 24 kt Gold to make it shine. The leaf is attached to a 14kt Gold Fill chain and finished with a lobster claw clasp.

I really love this necklace and think it would be a great addition to any jewelry collection. You have a little taste of everything here: and organic stylized leaf, silver, and gold. The chain enables it to move freely and catch light at a lot of different angles.

I hope you give this little leaf some love!

Thanks for looking!!!

B Company

Welcome to the 222nd Army battalion, B-company. This is where the Army rakes together all the insubordinates, hellraisers and troublemakers that won’t fit in any other unit. When the Rangers and Deltas are too expensive to waste, these guys are the first ones in.

They’re called “Bad Company”; a mismatched bunch of rejects selected to serve their country as cannon fodder. This isn’t the kind of outfit a lot of soldiers would join voluntarily. Getting transferred to “the B” is a punishment and a way for the generals to put all their rotten eggs in one basket.

No one starts out in Bad Company. But for some, this is where they end up.

Deadwood, Ghost town of Bodie




Deadwood, Ghost town of Bodie





Bodie was named after Waterman S. Body (also known as William S. Bodey) who discovered gold here in 1859. The change in spelling of the town's name has often been attributed to an illiterate sign painter, but was a deliberate change by the citizenry to insure proper pronunciation.

The town of Bodie rose to prominence with the decline of mining along the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. Prospectors crossing the eastern slope in 1859 to "see the Elephant" - that is, to search for gold - discovered what was to be the Comstock Lode at Virginia City, and started a wild rush to the surrounding high desert country.

Bodie became a boom town in 1877 and by 1879 Bodie boasted a population of about 10,000 with 2,000 buildings, and was second to none for wickedness, badmen, and "the worst climate out of doors". One little girl, whose family was taking her to the remote and infamous town, wrote in her diary: "Good-bye God, I'm going to Bodie." The phrase came to be known throughout the west.

Killings occurred with monotonous regularity, sometimes becoming almost daily events. The fire bell, which tolled the ages of the deceased when they were buried, rang often and long. Robberies, stage holdups, and street fights provided variety, and the town's 65 saloons offered many opportunities for relaxation after hard days of work in the mines. The Reverend F.M. Warrington saw it in 1881 as "a sea of sin, lashed by the tempest of lust and passion."

The town became more known for its wild living than for its big gold resources. Every other building on the mile long main street was a saloon. Seven breweries were working day and night. The whiskey was brought in by horse carriages, 100 barrels at a time.

The boom was over in four short years and by 1882, Bodie was in the grips of decline. The rich mines were playing out and mining companies were going bankrupt. Two fires, one in 1892 and the other in 1932, ravaged the business district. Bodie faded into a ghost town during the 1940's. It became a State Historic Park in 1962, managed in a state of arrested decay. Today, with less than 10% of the town still standing, it is still the largest ghost town in the western United States, and what is left looks much the same as it did over 50 years ago when the last residents left.

Nearly everyone has heard about the infamous "Badman from Bodie." Some historians say that he was a real person by the name of Tom Adams. Others say his name was Washoe Pete. It seems more likely, however, that he was a composite. Bad men, like bad whiskey and bad climate, were endemic to the area. Whatever the case, the streets are quiet now. Bodie still has its wicked climate but, with the possible exception of an occasional ghostly visitor, its badmen are all in their graves. (Source: americanwest.com)











mayan gold

Not genetically modified corn, well, I think it is. I did buy it in France after all where gmo’s are supposed to be illegal. But are they? Cattle and pig farms have been importing tons of bt corn from America to stuff their French animals full of a grain that they were not breed to eat, one that makes them fat (that marbled fat that everyone loves to eat) but it makes them very, very sick as well. Over half of the gmo fed cows have liver disease when they are slaughtered and millions have e coli raging inside their intestines because bt corn hanged the acidity of their stomach to a nice breeding ground instead of a killing field for bacteria. One hundred cows are killed per hour so there is not a lot of sanitary action to get the e coli off your future hamburger as the knife slides from one tainted stomach to the next cut of “beef”.

But I digress, this is about this natural corn, the Mayan secret to livelihood, the original people of the corn who respected it, who worshipped its ability to take sunlight and make energy and nourishment for their people. The indigenous people of Mexico knew its secrets and still respect it, but bt (modified corn with the pesticides built in) corn has 20,000 spores per kernel of corn, little fine like dust particles that are blowing in the wind down to Mexico and beyond, potentially modifying one of the eight foods that the world today survives on into Frankenstein food with who knows what consequences.

I wanted to write about Nixtamalification and how I used my own wood ash lye to treat this corn to make it more nutritious (releases the proteins and B3 vitamins to make them digestible to humans) like the Aztecs did and the first Europeans who didn’t find out that tidbit of knowledge before they slaughtered all the people in their conquest and subsequently did themselves in with a bad case of Pellagra (vitamin deficiency). I’ll save that story for the blog and my recipe for really, truly homemade Posole, that is if you can find some corn that has not been Frankensteined by a billion dollar company who created Agent Orange with no retributions.

Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise, and Other Bribes






The basic strategy we use for raising children, teaching students, and managing workers can be summarized in six words: Do this and you'll get that. We dangle goodies (from candy bars to sales commissions) in front of people in much the same way we train the family pet. Drawing on a wealth of psychological research, Alfie Kohn points the way to a more successful strategy based on working with people instead of doing things to them. "Do rewards motivate people?" asks Kohn. "Yes. They motivate people to get rewards." Seasoned with humor and familiar examples, Punished By Rewards presents an argument unsettling to hear but impossible to dismiss.
