Another GREAT Story
On April 20th, 2018, the Queen Anne’s County Waterman Association and Grasonville VFW Post 7465 hosted a Waterman’s Story Swap, an event designed to celebrate the history and cultural heritage of the men of the Chesapeake Bay.
The audience awaits the beginning of the Story Swap.
Harry Davidson & Shea Springer opened the show.
HARRY DAVIDSON is a native Kent Island Eastern Shoreman, a waterman, and an ecological activist, with a great interest in saving the menhaden fish, a critical link in the Chesapeake Bay food chain. Harry’s music captures the essence of his love for the bay and the lives of watermen, and the songs on his CD, Songs of the Chesapeake Bay, tell the waterman’s story through that music.
SHEA SPRINGER downplays his role in Harry’s work, but Shea is a talented and soulful musician, and I know how much Harry appreciates him. Shea is the owner-operator…

Saw this while browsing the wordpress pages. It’s a pretty good read!
Having read another bloggers serial fantasy story (in collaboration with someone else) it’s inspired me to have a go at writing my own fantasy story. My main objective is to have fun writing it. Some of the names I’ll be using such as Tigreralat, Larantel, or Salané are old names for me. They are […]
Today was the day
when all was supposed
soon to be disposed,
is just so near,
with certain fears
do not spare
notice has been served
it is time,
wake up to
after the end,
seeing on the other end
long lost relations, friends,
cross without fear
unable to bear,
a beloved’s kiss,
wipes tears dry
The Story of the Sandwich
http://www.gawker.com. (“Big sandwiches are trendy.”)
Would you believe that Americans eat more than 300 million sandwiches a day? That’s right, every day we consume about as many sandwiches as we have people to eat them. And why not?
The sandwich might be the perfect food: portable, open to any interpretation and as simple or as elaborate as the mood permits.

The sandwich has a long history, but it hasn’t always been as embraced in America as it is now. It’s hard to imagine, but the sandwich was once thought of as a symbol of a colonial past that most patriotic Americans wanted to forget.

This is the only Black & White Sunday this month, and I decided that it should be Traces of the Past (the recurrent photo challenge on this blog). Here is one of the most beautiful landmarks of Northumberland – the famous Bamburgh Castle. The day I took this photo it glistened nicely in late, golden sunlight, but for this opportunity I decided to show it in silvery tones i.e. in black and white.
Janel Mithani drew,
and painted a fairy review….
With no bustle stresses,
Crenillin and magic will do!
Most are in soft pastels,
For fairies don’t stay among themselves…
Thus if seem
They’ll be fashionable dreams,
In designs visible by Janell!
Light fabrics so rare,
Fairies float lighter than air…
Glisten in these things,
And sprites show an appreciative stare!
A fairy fashion poem!!
