Plea of the Simla Dancers (Kipling)
Too late, alas! the song To remedy the wrong –
The rooms are taken from us, swept and garnished for their fate.
But these tear-besprinkled pages Shall attest to future ages
That we cried against the crime of it – too late, alas! too late!
“The richer you were the more ornate your equipment was. It sends the message, take me for ransom rather than kill me in battle…”
This video takes you through the process of arming a 14th century knight.
** Jules enters INKTOBER with an eerie scream from the dark woods. You have to get in line with the reason for the season.
** General Mark Milley, US Army (ret.) showed who he was down deep when he explained that he worked out a back-channel deal with Communist China during Pres. Trump’s first administration. Outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told “60 Minutes” this week he will take “appropriate measures” to protect himself and his family following comments by former President Donald Trump suggesting Milley’s actions would warrant execution “in times gone by.”
Milley wore the traitor’s mantle proudly during his government service.
Does anybody actually watch 60 Minutes anymore? I was interviewed by Mike Wallace on a 60 Minutes piece that aired in 1988 back when people watched the program but now?
** With the novel Broken Toys complete (at editing), I embarked on a sequel, titled Hungry Ghosts, which takes up where the last one left off.
** If you were reading the Book of Daniel and you arrived at the end of the Book and thought, “This could have used more nudity and talk of sex.” The Book of Susanna is the missing chapter from Daniel that you have been looking for.
** VDH on Ukraine – But Ukraine risks now becoming a new—and different—proxy war altogether.
** Record Breaking Sales – Conservative beer as an alternative to Bud Lite…
** Johnny Quest factoid: Jezebel Jade appeared in 2 of 26 episodes: Double Danger and Terror Island. She was a mercenary for hire, entrepreneur, ally of the Quest team, and a love interest/old flame of Race Bannon.
She popped up in the jungle in Thailand, where she saved Jonny and Haji from a wild cat. Jonny recognizes her and calls her by her first name, meaning the two must have met before. The boys immediately enlist her help and leave camp with her, showing that they trust her. Jade meets the Race Bannon impostor and their conversation implies that the two have been romantically involved in the past. When the real Race is found, Jade saves everyone by letting them escape in her helicopter, although she is not piloting it. Her parting remark that “there’s only one Race Bannon,” as well as the fact that she came personally to the jungle to warn him, seem to suggest she still has some feelings for him, although she still mentions she will charge him for her help.
