The Lewis & Clark Series – Part One

Written By Samantha James 

The Lewis & Clark series is dedicated to my eldest nephew. He is reading a Lewis and Clark novel in school. The kid told me I should write about them. I could not have agreed  more! I love you nephew of mine. I hope you enjoy reading aunties article! 

The story of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark is one of the most fascinating pieces of American History. It all begins when President Thomas Jefferson longed to explore the west. He had dreams and imagined all the benefits that this could bring to the young and growing country. President Jefferson thought the U.S could only prosper from such an expedition if it were a successful one. This would be especially true if the U.S could find a route to the Pacific Ocean. It would open up a lot of opportunities. Thomas Jefferson decided to put all his plans in motion to get an expedition started. The first thing the president would need in order to achieve this mission was money. Jefferson wrote to congress on the matter, he said …

About us – Eastern Region Woodturners Inc

RedMalleeSlab1

Eastern Region was started in 1985-1986 by Jim Dorbis while a student of woodturning at a College of Technical and Further Education. Things were hard in the beginning but at the same time exciting.

Eastern Region is the smallest of all the Sydney Woodturners Guild Regions but it is well supported. Most of the members are working and often lack time to devote to their hobby but are emphatic that the eastern region will survive.

In the early days of the Region, woodturners met  at Jim Dorbis’s premises, after which the meeting were held in various other members workshops which was a good way of seeing other peoples woodturning tools and equipment and approach to work turning safety. The members found this approach very practical. At the end of 2014, we had the opportunity to move into our own workshop in Malabar which is now our home.

Eastern Region is a miniature United Nations woodturning club with members originating from Sweden, Italy, Egypt, Israel and Malta. Some members even come from Sydney. {   }

Re-us

Written from the Dental Hospital between 10,00 am and 10.40 am this morning

Dear friends, you may have noticed that it has been quit up here. Some of you know that  have been in hospital doing Video telemetry for Jessoca’ s epilepsy.

Well trouble struck for me the following Monday when we attended St. Vincent’s hospital. I HAD A SECIZURE ON THE BUS coming in to the appointment and then had a headach focused on mt left occipital lobe and was seeind double. I WENT TO EMERGENCY  as if one visit wasn’t enough- spent the entire day fom 8 until 2, Had a cat scan, chest x ray, eeg, ecg, to rule out stroke and minor heart attack, then it was decided I had had a peculiar post ichtal reaction. Will be seeing my Neurogist Friday week.

It is now 5 minutes after 11 pm , I have had an inpression made for my dentures and paid the excess for the superior base which will give me opportunity to actually taste the food I eat.

My phone is too flate to abstract its phots, as is the phone which is making me more than annoyed. I hope to return to my regular postings soon.

Also to the Parish one which have suffered just as woefully as this one.

An Interview with Harold Norse, Part Two: The Pain of Becoming Literate-Rob Goldstein 2017

I moved in with Norse in 1984 and spent my days writing and studying
film and literature.

Norse was drafting his memoirs.

We lived in a creative stew under the strain of the most devastating years
of the AIDS epidemic.

We both had good reason to think our lives would soon be over.

The pressure I placed on myself brought on the symptoms of florid DID.

My alternates were coming out and writing and Harold was responding
to them as ‘characters’

Norse gives me a rundown of what he liked or hated about a collection of poems I left for him one week in February 1985. He calls me ‘Bobby’ in the note and uses. ‘Bobby’s’ accent in the opening. Seems I also wrote a poem called ‘Jew-Boy’ that Norse thought was sick. I have no memory of ‘Jew-Boy’. One definitely had to be strong to ask Norse to critique one’s writing. What I loved about Norse was that I always knew I was getting the truth. He signs the note, ‘Your loving dementor’
