Saturday July 14th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite authors, A.A. Attanasio. I first encountered him through his novel “Radix,” the first of a four-volume set each with the theme of one of the four dimensions. “Radix” – height, “In Other Worlds” – depth, “Arc of The Dream” – breadth, and one of my Top Five Novels of All Time, “The Last Legends Of Earth” – time.
    “Radix” is an exceptionally difficult read, but the good things in life never come easy.
    For his next two, he scales it back a bit – just a bit! – with “In Other Worlds”
    and “Arc of The Dream”
    and finishes in strong fashion with the simply amazing “The Last Legends of Earth”, the scale and scope of which is truly mind-expanding.
    One of the most common adjectives applied to Attanasio’s work is “mind-bending.”
    Here is his GoodReads blurb
    and here is his website
    He has also written one of the most unique interpretations of the Arthurian Legend I have ever encountered, a multi-volume set overtitled “The Perilous Order of Camelot,” containing the four novels “The Dragon and The Unicorn,” “The Eagle and The Sword,” “The Wolf and The Crown,” and “The Serpent and The Grail.”

        Without the ability to think for themselves, there’s not an original thought or action in the entire group. Old, worn-out and never-true philosophies clog their minds and they act out insipid scripts others have written for them.

        Take them from the streets this hour and plunk them down in one of their utopias, they’d do nothing but cry and beg and live with the street rats unable to work because they know how to do nothing. The masters of their paradise would find it necessary to eliminate them for they are of no use to anyone.

      Lucille, I’m not that limber yet…..but all those long slow stretches with learning how to properly breath from the diaphram…. is sure helping. I spend way too much time at my desk……by classes have taught me techniques that I can do at home, and release the tension in my muscles!!

    I am new here. I think I only posted a couple of times in the past! Was wondering, I am on Twitter, and realized that I am not receiving many of PDJT tweets in my timeline. This has been probably going on for a while. Is this a common problem? I have been a little upset about reports today about more censorship on social media (particularly stories about Facebook and how they try to censor “fake news”, the definition of which is left to the imagination).

      Welcome (again) to the Tree House sherry! 😀


    • BigMamaTEA says:

      Same thing has been happening to me sherrymerlot. So, I just go to Trump’s page, go through the tweets, and repost the ones I want in my timeline. “Bypass the system” Trump is being shadow-banned.


      • sherrymerlot says:

        Thank you. I am finding that, if I follow a sufficient number of highly active Trump supporters, they “like” and “re-tweet” enough that the best @realdonaldtrump tweets will appear on my timeline anyway.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
