I have sent off for the back issue!

I could have mailed you a copy--didn't think to offer. Oh well, nice to support the Society, I guess, though I doubt Dale got paid anything in the first place.

Rats. We only have through 1999 in the seminary library.


No culture gets everything right, and I’d say a flawed testament of real love and real faith is far preferable to a sick popular culture which speaks of women only as “hot” or not, and has given us the term “hookup.”

Well said.

Because, though free of the outer court
I am, this Temple keeps its shrine
Sacred to Heaven; because, in short,
She’s not and never can be mine.

Wow. A lot to ponder there.

Thanks for the "well said"--that sentence as first written was a longer list of these contemptuous terms, including the cruder ones, which I decided I didn't want to propagate.

From the title alone I wouldn't have guessed (and I didn't) that the poems are romantic. And when I did, I didn't think the title referred to a woman. --Not at once, anyway; at any rate, when I read that the author wrote these with his wife in mind, my reaction was one of wistful regret.

That's interesting. What sorts of things did the title suggest to you?

"wistful regret"--because people don't think like this anymore? Of course most didn't, really, back then, either. Still, it was an admirable ideal in a lot of ways, and the book's popularity would indicate it was at least aspired to.

What sorts of things did the title suggest to you?

...an angel in a house. *sigh* I'm dead and doomed, aren't I? :-) (Or is it doomed and dead?)

it was at least aspired to.

--And not by all, certainly; and, I suppose, most were a lot less serious about it than the author. Still, it was indeed aspired to, however imperfectly; and I deeply mourn and regret the loss. But you know the immediate answer to your question :-)

Heh! Well, to paraphrase Freud or whoever that was, sometimes an angel in a house is just an angel in a house.

Что Вы думаете о своей фамилии?
Вы никогда не думали, насколько секрет фамилии влияет на жизнь человека и влияет ли вообще?
Ученые долгое время пытались вычислить, почему иногда судьбы современных людей повторяют судьбы наших предков, в чем таится виновник похожих судеб в веках и как связанна фамилия с будущей судьбой человека. Ради того, чтобы понять причину и найти ответы на все эти вопросы, ученые проводили исследование многих архивов, которые сохранились в наше время.

Весела Коледа и Честита Нова Година! С пожелания за много щастие през новата 2012!

Историкът Пол Арбластър, преподавател в Университета в Льовен, Белгия, се е заел с амбициозна и нелека задача - да проследи пътя през столетията на три малки държави, чието историческо значение далеч надхвърля скромната им площ. Огромен е приносът на Белгия, Нидерландия и Люксембург за политическото, икономическото и културното наследство на Европа. От епохата на римските завоевания, през Средните векове, до днешните конституционни монархии и европейската интеграция - авторът не пропуска нито един важен момент от събитията в региона на Бенилюкс. В същото време миналото и настоящето на държавите от Низините не биха могли да се разглеждат извън географския контекст - общото развитие на цяла Западна Европа, тъй като през годините те са били бойно поле и търговски кръстопът на континента, а сега са пример за модерна икономика, сърце на Европейския съюз и район със забележителен духовен и интелектуален заряд.

Oh, sorry - don't know what came over me. (Mine is a safe link, by the way, albeit self-promotional.)

Huh - hovering with my mouse cursor suggests that my safe link has been disabled, but their dodgy ones haven't! What gives?

Here, this should do it!

Heh. I didn't even know what language that was. I followed your link and Chrome offered to translate it. That was several minutes ago. Did it misidentify the language? It thinks it's Bulgarian.

The thing you were replying to may or may not still be there. I reflexively marked it as spam before I noticed that your comments were replies to it.

As far as I know TypePad doesn't do any disabling of links--the spam catcher either snags it or not. I think your link wasn't working because you had 'ref' instead of 'href', which I just corrected, so maybe it works now.

I'm impressed that you know Bulgarian. Chrome is still churning on that translation.

Ok, I see the un-marking-as-spam of the original comment worked. I removed the links from it first, though.

All I know of Bulgarian is that my book has been translated into it. The rest is copying and pasting.

Ah. That's better.:-)
