Guildenstern and gentle Rosencrantz are alive and living in Westminster MD



“There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” Hamlet Act 2 Scene 2 – in a conversation between Hamlet and Rosencrantz…

Yes, but of course, this is the scene in which my two good friends, Guildenstern and gentle Rosencrantz, appear…

SCENE II. A room in the castle.
Enter KING CLAUDIUS, QUEEN GERTRUDE, ROSENCRANTZ, GUILDENSTERN, and Attendants
Exeunt ROSENCRANTZ, GUILDENSTERN, and some Attendants
Enter POLONIUS

[…]

Enter ROSENCRANTZ and GUILDENSTERN

LORD POLONIUS
You go to seek the Lord Hamlet; there he is.
ROSENCRANTZ
[To POLONIUS] God save you, sir!
Exit POLONIUS

GUILDENSTERN
My honoured lord!
ROSENCRANTZ
My most dear lord!
HAMLET
My excellent good friends! How dost thou,
Guildenstern? Ah, Rosencrantz! Good lads, how do ye both?
ROSENCRANTZ
As the indifferent children of the earth.
GUILDENSTERN
Happy, in that we are not over-happy;
On fortune's cap we are not the very button.
HAMLET
Nor the soles of her shoe?
ROSENCRANTZ
Neither, my lord.
HAMLET
Then you live about her waist, or in the middle of
her favours?
GUILDENSTERN
'Faith, her privates we.
HAMLET
In the secret parts of fortune? O, most true; she
is a strumpet. What's the news?
ROSENCRANTZ
None, my lord, but that the world's grown honest.
HAMLET
Then is doomsday near: but your news is not true.
Let me question more in particular: what have you,
my good friends, deserved at the hands of fortune,
that she sends you to prison hither?
GUILDENSTERN
Prison, my lord!
HAMLET
Denmark's a prison.
ROSENCRANTZ
Then is the world one.
HAMLET
A goodly one; in which there are many confines,
wards and dungeons, Denmark being one o' the worst.
ROSENCRANTZ
We think not so, my lord.
HAMLET
Why, then, 'tis none to you; for there is nothing
either good or bad, but thinking makes it so: to me
it is a prison.
ROSENCRANTZ
Why then, your ambition makes it one; 'tis too
narrow for your mind.

Here are the winners of the 2014 US Military Photographer Awards Business Insider Australia… by JEREMY BENDER



“A panel of judges in Fort Meade, Maryland have made their selections for the 2014 Military Photographer awards.

“The judges have handed out awards to military photographers for their amazing work in ten different categories including Sports, Pictorial, and Combat Documentation (Operational). The judges have also named the overall best military photographer for 2014…”

This is an awesome set of photographs…


In photograph # 17, “A US Marine assigned to Echo Company 4th Reconnaissance Battalion rappels out of a CH-46E Sea Knight helicopter at Camp Upshur, Marine...”

Take a good look at this photograph. I trained, in part, at Camp Upshur in the summer of 1972. If you will notice how graceful the Marine jumps out of the helicopter. This Marine makes it look so easy – so polished – so graceful. A ballet in the air with a helicopter. It is beautiful. That, my friends, is not how I did it.

In the real world, the helicopter is so loud. The air rushes about so violently. If my memory serves me, in my case the helicopter was a Boeing CH-47 Chinook and-or a CH-46E Sea Knight – see picture #16...

At night it was easy to lose track of what was up and what was down - and just where is the ground anyway? You pray you find the landing zone before it finds you – with a very hard thud. I usually flailed-out of the aircraft and fell on my head. Over and over again.

Go here for all the pictures…. I also did number 7: I have no idea why I did not drown. I remember #6… I still do not like wind to this day.


Picture #10 is pretty powerful. And see if you can look at picture #14 and not get a tear in your eye.

Photograph #21 made me think of my grandfather, William Earl Wright, who served as a farrier in the cavalry during World War 1. (My dad served in the Navy during World War II – in the Pacific Theater …)

Photograph #24, ‘'The Army Chaplain' is pretty poignant.

All of the pictures are great. Please enjoy…

A visit to the Morse Tiffany museum in Winter Park Florida



A visit to the Morse Tiffany museum in Winter Park Florida http://kevindayhoffart.blogspot.com/2015/03/a-visit-to-morse-tiffany-museum-in.html

February 27, 2015

Caroline and I visited the Morse Museum http://www.morsemuseum.org/ on Friday, February 27, 2015. It is not very far from Orlando Florida. It is well worth taking a day off from Disney or Universal Studios to spend a day in the Morse Museum. It is simply an incredible exhibit… Reported to be the “world’s most comprehensive collection of the works of Lois Comfort Tiffany.”

And if the art does not take your breath away, the comprehensive history presentation putting the art in an American history context is quite well done and worth the visit alone…

Besides this time of the year, it is warm – no snow. Winter Park Florida will remind you of St. Armand’s Circle in Sarasota Florida. Very nice area of Florida.

10 Running Misconceptions


YOU'RE TOO SLOW TO BE A RUNNER 1 OF 11 - Running is a sport for everyone. You don't have to be a pro. Since it is a free-form sport, you can choose how fast, how long and where you want to run. It's supposed to be fun, so don't tell yourself that you can't do it! You can run a seven minute mile or a 12 minute mile -- in the end, all that matters is that you finished! http://www.chacha.com/gallery/3218/10-running-misconceptions/30248

How much sleep have I lost worrying about daylight saving time? by Kevin Dayhoff



A full week later, I'm still savoring the extra hour of sleep I got last Sunday morning at 2 a.m. when daylight saving time officially ended for 2012.

Of course, I lost that hour in the days since, lying awake thinking about the history of daylight savings time. The March 7, 1947, edition of a local Westminster paper carried an article which gives us some insight into almost a century of controversy over daylight saving time.

Ben Franklin is credited with advocating the value of "daylight saving," in 1784, in a satirical, anonymous letter to the editor of the Journal of Paris. In it, he proposed, among many humorous remedies to the overuse of candles, a tax on shutters, to be enforced by stepped-up police vigilance and the rationing of candles.

It was not until the Standard Time Act was enacted March 19, 1918, that daylight saving time was established in the United States. It was so controversial that it was promptly repealed in 1919.

According to the U.S. Naval Observatory, it was re-established nationally early in World War II, and was continuously observed from February 1942 to September 1945. After the war, its use was determined locally among states, counties and communities…


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In 1947, the now-defunct Democratic Advocate wrote that, "By defeating the statewide daylight savings measure, the House of Delegates left the 'time' question up to the individual towns and cities. Baltimore City has already determined that it will have daylight savings and Baltimore County will probably adopt the city's time.

"Westminster will vote on the issue on May 7, 1947. Other towns in Carroll County may use daylight savings time, from the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday in September. The result is bound to be confusing."

It was not until the Uniform Time Act of 1966 that the dates, for the beginning and end of daylight saving time during the summer months, were established.

Congress again meddled with the starting dates during the "energy crisis" years in the mid-1970s. Although the ending date remained in October, the Naval Observatory reports, "In 1974, daylight time began on 6 January and in 1975 it began on 23 February. After those two years the starting date reverted to the last Sunday in April.

"In 1986, a law was passed that shifted the starting date of daylight time to the first Sunday in April, beginning in 1987…"

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed the "spring forward" and "fall back" dates once again. The 2005 law mandated that "beginning in 2007, daylight time starts on the second Sunday in March, and ends on the first Sunday in November."

Are you confused enough yet?"

Believe me, it's not worth losing sleep over.


In researching the history of daylight saving time, many articles noted a tale about the old Indian chief who was told of the reasons for daylight saving time. The story goes that he responded, "Only the government could believe that cutting a foot off the top of a blanket and sewing it to the bottom, would make a longer blanket."
