A FILM REVIEW OF THE CLASSIC 'LES MISERABLES'. RIGINAL.
My name is Alfred Shortcock. Brother of Alfred Hitchcock. He had to. I didn't want to stretch it any further...a hitch at first but i percy veered went Westward on the wagon of Artisticness via a short course 'cockup' (as already mentioned). I thought i was studying a diploma course on filmic critique. Only to find at the cessation of the course to be handed a diplomatic 'pass' of 10% out of a possible 500%. The diploma read thus and i'll quake verbatim..."how to flog a dead horse back to life in an earthquake." unquake. Obviously... Read More
how does it change us?
what makes us different if anything?
we see the same things ....... though probably now through squinted eyes or glasses
we hear the same things ... though you may have to speak up a little or slower

The presence of a carnation flower anywhere signifies divinity. The literal meaning of ‘carnation flower’ is the ‘flower of love'. The legend of the carnation says that these beautiful flowers first grew on Earth from Mary’s tears after watching her Son, Jesus, carrying His cross through Jerusalem. Therefore, carnations are used in many ceremonies and any special occasions; this flower was pink in color.
Mary, the Mother of Jesus, wept at the sight of her Son bearing the cross, and her tears turned to the first carnations. Leonardo Da Vinci immortalized the association of the carnation... Read More

RUDYARD KIPLING'S BROTHER DRAYDUR GNILPIK. riginal.
A friend of mine stationed in Bombay sent me an email recently concerning documentary evidence about the existence of a little known-or little known about i should say-Rudyard Kipling's brother.Draydur Gnilpik.
Had there been a reversal in namesake and fortune the famous Rudyard (Nobel Prize winner for literature) could indeed have had an alter ego.Had Draydur's alpha rhythms been that of a'normal rested person's' parlance the brother may have achieved a semblance of literary achievment befitting a 'not too shabby story teller'...

I am thinking of so many of my dear friends who are struggling with health issues and many other of life's problems. What is the one thing that we all need to have in these times? To me it is hope and faith. Very much the same in many ways. But faith to me is "hope in action"....So I wish you my friends, while I am unable to fix all of this for you, or as I said to a dear lady, "wave a magic wand".....so the next best thing I can offer you is hope...and may this hope turn to faith. Love and blessings. Barbara
Hope...is the opposite of despair. Hope...is the opposite... Read More
