Astrology makes predictions of future events based on cosmological alignments of both planets andRead More the Sun and Moon in relation to constellations of stars. So what exactly is the difference if not the predictions and labels used? While the ancient writers of scripture surely associated celestial events with real world events by sensing a pattern, without knowing that the pattern is repeated throughout the universe, they could not know that it couldn't be personal. That the eclipse happened while the skies were overcast suggests that if it were a sign, few were able to see it. The logical question is to ask why God wouldn't have ensured there were clear skies so that the sign could be seen. Simply put, if it were in fact a sign, hiding it is counter productive. The significance of the world wars depends on from where and when you look at them. Significant to those who lived it to be sure but to those who came afterwards, perhaps less so. While tragic to those who suffered the effects of the times, the losses were replaced within 3 generations and the memory of those who experienced the times are fading as time moves on. Besides, if another world war is to happen, it, like everything else, must be by design of anything is. I do believe that everything happens because it is supposed to or nothing can, I just don't think it all happens for us as some seem to. My ego is healthy but to assume the entire universe was made for man alone is beyond my hubris.

sounds fascinating -- I heard of John Hagee a minister who wrote a book on the Blood Moons - don'tRead More get it yet, but sounds intense, we just had a lunar eclipse + full moon days ago.

christie I hope you don't think it's significant that the eclipse and the full moon occurred at theRead More same time. That is ALWAYS the case (simple geometry).

The nice thing about selfies is that they are - selfies. Once people teach others to take selfiesRead More are they really selfies anymore? Portrait photography is not new.

Ah, Joshua Tanner: For teens raised in an Instagram world, portraiture is new; and like eachRead More generation of artists, they will create with fresh eyes.

The more unresponsive the dog is, the funnier that monologue of Launce’s is. During my dramaRead More training, a Royal Shakespeare Company actor performed it in our class, substituting a rolled up coat for Crab. Absolutely brilliant!

Bob, it is not about you it is about selling beer and having a few restaurants making windfallRead More money. I don't know why they call it a Jazz and Blues when last year there was NO Blues and this year there is NO Jazz. The BID and Red House (obviously in the same political pocket as Birdsall House) have put all there efforts into selling beer. Gary Bonds is and always was a top 40 pop guy from 50 years ago who plays the nostalgia circuit, Professor Louie and Correll are bluesy types and the rest are bar bands. NO Jazz. But remember after 5 or 10 beers in the hot sun Rudy Vallie would go over with this crowd, and he's dead! I am quite sure the organizers would think it would be a great artistic hit! Don't forget your megaphone Bob.
