It's kind of a hobby... seeing how deep I can
dive into the sea of information we
are all sinking in. Woosh

Trump 13 Tuesday, January 29, 2008 |

This is a classic tarot card from the 1450s, hundreds of years ago, from an incomplete set. It's the Trump card number 13, the death card, from the Visconti Sforza set of cards made in Italy. I like it.

Temperance! Sunday, January 20, 2008 |

(1887) Nothing says "family time" like getting around the fire (they didnt have TVs or PCs back then, OK?) and signing up a promise for everyone not to drink. Every last one of us, even little Johnny. Added to that but we promise to make the lives of anyone else who drinks living hell. Oh yeah! Thats the way to do it!

The text typed out for easy reading:

Family Temperance Pledge
Temperance Leads to Virtue & Happiness.
Intemperance Tends to Poverty and Ruin.
"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is decieved thereby is not wise."

We the undersigned Family of ________ Agree with each other that we will not Buy, Sell or Use intoxicating Liquors as a beverage and will use our Best Endeavors to Qurtail and Prevent the Sale and use of the Same by others.


I can't get enough of the details on this. Don't drink and life is easy-street, drink and everything goes to crap. Nice! If I had a printer I would so print this out and get all my friends to sign it and put it up on my wall, and then have a bigass wild drinking party because I'm that immature! ha-ha OK, I guess that means you have an assignment.

Lets go on a dive Friday, January 18, 2008 |

Why surf when you can dive? Thats the concept behind this journey. Don't really need to say much about that, it kind of explains itself. A few words about my "mission statement" ... I will dig through ancient information (mostly online) and present it here. I might edit it, I might play with it, or I might present it raw. I might chop it up or even fuse it with something else. Basically this is just an effort to froth up old content. Shake up the bits that have settled to the bottom of forgotten memory. Yup. Enjoy!
