Stonehenge

March 17, 2013

I've gone to my farm in Kentucky for the weekend. It's a great place to relax, do a little hard physical labor, and forget about the rest of the world. If you don't have such a place, I highly suggest you get one.

In the meantime, what's your opinion.

See you on Monday.

Peterman

A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times
eleven, equals nine squared and not a bit more.

We really don't celebrate St Patrick's day. So I have no special menu planned CD. I did have a few friends over to dinner last night and made veal saltimbocco--not very Irish, but I did make myself a black and tan as a cocktail.  I may have to have one again today.  Tonight I'm going to make some roast chicken.   What's Irish and stays out all night?  Patio furniture!  Maybe that's what Stonehenge is all about?  I want some flourless chocolate cake with pistacho ice cream! Yowza!

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you all from the Neighborhood Luxembourger!

We lived in a predominantly Irish Catholic South-Side Chicago neighborhood and there was nothing quite as mouth watering as climbing the stairs to the top floor and smelling the cooking of Corned beef, cabbage and potatoes wafting from all of the apartments on the way up.

My green today will be the peppers on the pizza I have while watching the Boondock Saints this evening....... But I do hope for a piled high corned beef on rye at Jason's Deli before hand.

Peace out

Back to the Stonehenge topic, miss Hazel has an even better story about stones.  Hazel, I wish if you can, to share about the stones in your garden.  This story has fascinated me, and I think of it often.Thank you.

Stonehenge started out as a prank by
Leprechauns who brought the stones over at night from the wee little land and
placed them in a circle at their present location.  At the time they were
brought to Salisbury, they were no bigger than, say, lincoln logs. On
subsequent nights, the leprechauns would sneak over and feed the rocks corned
beef and Guinness stout until the rocks grew to be their present size. Thus it
was a mystery from day one and even the Brits who lived in the plains of
Salisbury did not know what had happened. If I told you how it is that I know
these things, you most likely would not believe me.  

 

Now back to watching Wisconsin
Badgering the Buckeyes.

I figured Stonehenge was a 'Just Add Water and Watch The Grow' product that went a bit wild.

Personnaly, I would prefer they, and other such phenomona, would always remain a mystery. It is healthy for our present day experts to have to just slap their foreheads and shrug their shoulders every so often.

I have seen papier-mâché-henge in a school gym, plywood-henge in a public park, sheet metal-henge in a tech-school parking lot and adobe-henge which was actually the remains of burned-out migrant housing south of Fairwater.
I'm henged out.
Had a nice lamb stew for lunch and CB&C in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.
Happy St. Patrick's Day one and all… whatever it may mean.

Peter Lake, I couldn't agree more, and I love the mystery of the place itself.  Many years ago when you could still walk about at Stonehenge I was there on a misty day with one other person.  Eerie, mysterious and wonderful all at the same time.

The only library book I ever borrowed without returning was Stonehenge. We moved...no excuse, but it's the only one I have...to another state and the book went with me. This was in 1965. I still have the book. I should mail it to the Memphis Library. Adding to my list of things to do.
 
Yes, ChefDeb...perfect combination...flourless chocolate cake and pistachio ice cream  ...yumm

Not to worry. The Library Police cannot cross state lines. I am certain that the librarian would be pleased that the book was in such good hands.

Hello SpringRain~ I was racking my brain as to which stones story you were thinking of, and now I know which one it is. A place I formerly lived for about 12years before moving to the cottage I lived in for 29 years was named Tyn Llan. (The church smallholding) It was right next to an ancient church and an even more ancient wooden church was there previously. And previous to churches, such sites were the location of stone circles. Stonehenge is the most famous - if you ask anybody of my generation to name a tall building they would say "The Empire State Building" So it is with henges, there are numerous lesser henges, the sites of which were usurped by the church&state in cahoots to abolish 'paganism'. Of course the location of a stone circle was not a random act, they were carefully chosen by divination of "earth forces" and, having lived in the middle of one such Christianised site, we became aware that there was 'something else' going on and went off to the local archives to investigate. Wow! what an amazing lot of reading! The quantity as well as the fascinating  legends and theories associated with these now mysterious places. We were intrigued to find, with the assistance of our local Historical Society who were delighted that we would dowse, make a map, dig. Turned out that our house was within the outer ring of what was two concentric circles of upright stones and that the huge upright stone that served to hang our garden gate was indeed a remnant of the outer circle, as was a nuisance 'rock' in our veg garden that we had to work around. At the time we were doing this research, we took a holiday in Brittainy, France and visited Carnac. Which  is much more impressive and mysterious than Stonehenge in my humble opinion.

OOOh.  Hazel!  Thank you.  How interesting.  Yes, you are right.  Your story is better than Stonehenge.  Thank you for sharing.  Wonderful and interesting story. I had a calendar that had photos of carins (?) standing stones by themselves in the forest;  Stonehenge-like in structure.  I found those interesting.  These were in Ireland.

bebe...the feeling is mutual and thank you so much for noticing my birthday. I had a swell day. ❤❤
 
Paolo, I have to believe that even with George Clooney at bebe's door, her knees wouldn't buckle and she'd find some other way to win his attention without turning in my ne'erdowell self....I trust her.

Miss Jane ~ do you remember Miss Bebe's George Clooney story? I
think it is about time she told it again. She would most likely bring
Nick and George with her and y'all would be out and about with the
Clooney lads checking books out of libraries and carrying on with no intent of returning those borrowed goods. Ne'erdowells are so difficult to reform, especially the innocent looking ones.

Love your story of the stone circles, Hazel. So much of history has been razed in favor of some new building for "progress."

I saw a UK weather report that you had yellow ice in SW England....What is that kind of ice? (Here, we say, "Don't eat yellow snow," but I never heard of yellow ice...or was it a yellow alert for ice...not sure, but sounds unpleasant.) Is winter hanging on there? We had 77 degrees and sunny today. Lovely St. Paddy's Day.

Jane - You are probably safe, as the statute of limitations on library books is about 7 years....Ha!

Stonehenge is a fascinating mystery. Moving those enormous stones so far must give witness to some kind of tremendous dedication and motivation of the folks of 3000 BC. That's more work than you'd get today's people to do.
