Just spent a week at our old family lake haunt in CT. A 6 yr old, a 2 yr old, a 1 yr old and a 2 month old were the center of attention. Cousins, in-laws, guitar, games, fishing, catching up late into the night.

Earthiness and a Lab too. Meade is in heaven.

Planning a trip to Waterloo battlefield with a friend whose great, great,etc grandfather was there and who attended the Duchess of Richmond's ball the night before.

I love history, especially when I can see the spot. Have to get busy with more reading about Wellington. I've read a lot about Napoleon and have been to his tomb. Too bad his hemorrhoids were bothering him that morning and he took too much morphine. He slept late and let the Prussians steal a march on him.

From wiki: "If she [Elizabeth II] is still reigning on 10 Sept 2015, she will have surpassed her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, as the longest-reigning British monarch"

So just like you and I talk about "Victorian Architecture" or "Literature"or "mode of thinking"; future generations will talk about "The Second Elizabethan Age".

I wonder what they will say is the dominant zeikgiest* of our age?

*(I tried to spell check that ziekgiest word--you know that German term for the way the world is now- but spell check keeps recomending 'Zestiest**' which is not what I meant at all.)




** (Say what you will about our maligned River City of St Louis, but we have some of the best weed on-the-planet!)

Your spelling is just too far off for spell-check to figure out what you want, Jim in StL. The correct spelling is "zeitgeist." The "i before e" rule doesn't apply in German. :)
