Poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sonnets from the Portuguese


XLI

I thank all who have loved me in their hearts,
With thanks and love from mine. Deep thanks to all
Who paused a little near the prison-wall
To hear my music in its louder parts
Ere they went onward, each one to the mart's
Or temple's occupation, beyond call.
But thou, who, in my voice's sink and fall
When the sob took it, thy divinest Art's
Own instrument didst drop down at thy foot
To harken what I said between my tears, . . .
Instruct me how to thank thee! Oh, to shoot
My soul's full meaning into future years,
That they should lend it utterance, and salute
Love that endures, from life that disappears!

Vet: Dead Rabbit Looks Like a Jackalope

SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. - Veterinarian Dennis Bechtold looked at the dead rabbit in disbelief. The rabbit's wart-like growths made it look like a mythical jackalope — an animal that is half rabbit half antelope.

"It was amazing, really," Bechtold said. "Two of (the growths) were in the exact spot that made them look like a jackalope."

The dead rabbit was found in a woman's garden. It had Shope papilloma virus, a highly contagious disease that causes rabbits to grow things on their head and face that look like horns.

"I've never seen anything like it before," Police Chief Curt Gullickson said after the woman had called police about the rabbit.

Bechtold said the disease does not infect humans or domestic rabbits. He and Gullickson said there may be other rabbits in the area with the same problem.

"(People) may see them, and should not be scared of them," Gullickson said.

Rabbits with the disease can live with it, but usually die when the growths prevent them from eating.

Dogs go woof over Brazilian puppy love motel

SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - A love motel, complete with a heart-shaped mirror on the ceiling and a headboard resembling a doggy bone, has opened for amorous pooches in Brazil.

The doggy love motel in Sao Paulo, South America's largest city, was inspired by the thousands of such establishments that rent rooms to Brazilian couples for four-hour periods for trysts.

"I am absolutely certain this is the first one (for dogs) in the world," said Robson Marinho, a director at the Gang dos Bichos, or Gang of Animals, a pet shop.

Marinho says he has already received reservations for the room, which he built on the second floor of the store and hung a sign that reads "Pet Love Motel." The window has thick curtains for timid dogs that want discretion.

Marinho's business partners own seven love motels for humans in Sao Paulo, including the island-themed Caribe and another called Opium.

The air-conditioned pet love motel room, with a paw print decorative motif, has a special control panel to dim the lights, turn on romantic music or play films.

"The owner has to know what kind of DVD will excite his or her dog," Marinho said with a chuckle.

The dog motel, which opened this month, costs 100 reais for two hours, making it more expensive than the least luxurious rooms at the Opium, which cost 107 reais for four hours.

"We also have a wedding agency that matches up dogs and if the female dog doesn't get pregnant, we offer artificial insemination services," said Marinho

You are a very mysterious. You are most likely a

you don't think that people completely
understand you. Your emotions run deep, but you
are unsure what you are feeling, often. You
most likely like nature, and prefer animals
over human company. It is guessed that you are
also very quiet. You are strong-minded, and
very independant. You might like to read, or

want to make friends, but you also just want to
be left alone, since you've probably been hurt
most of your life by certain people. In large

Assassin
You are an assassin.
That means you are a proffessional and do your
job without mixing any emotions in it. In your
life you have probably been hurt many times and
have gotten some mental scars. This results in
you being distant from people. Though many
think that you are evil, you are not. What you
really are is a person, trying to forget your
pain and past. You are the person who never
seems to care and that is why being an assassin
fits you good. Atleast, that's what people
think. Even if you don't care that much for
your victims, you still have the ability to
care and to generally feel. It is not lost,
just a little forgotten. In crowds you tend to
not get to noticed, and dress in black or other
discrete colours. You don't being in the
spotlight and wish people would just leave you
alone. But once you do get close to someone you
have a hard time letting go and get real down
if you loose him/her.

Glass Gave Venetian Paintings Their Glow


By CARL HARTMAN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - How did paintings by Tintoretto and other Venetian Renaissance artists get their special glow? Using an electron microscope, Barbara Berrie, senior conservation scientist at the National Gallery of Art, discovered one of their secrets: tiny bits of glass the artists mixed with their pigments.



"By looking beyond the limits of their usual practice and transforming materials from other trades to their painting, the great artists of the Renaissance created a palette that gave them an immediate and lasting reputation as brilliant colorists," Berrie said.

It was long thought that Venetian painters, glassmakers and ceramic designers each had their own ways of concocting paints and dyes, probably getting the ingredients through apothecaries, as in most of Europe.

But Louisa Matthew, head of the Visual Arts Departments at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., found evidence that Venice developed a special market for dyes and pigments a century before other European areas did.

She was poring through the Venetian archives for information on how local artists did business. Among the dusty wills and tax records, she came upon an inventory of 102 items drawn up after the death of shop owner Domenico de Gardignano. He is identified in Italian as "dai colori" — "among the men in the color business."

"There are certain pigments that contain glass mentioned in the 1534 inventory, but by no means all," Matthew said. "Because (customers) were all buying colorants in the same place, we hypothesize that they traded ideas and ingredients including materials not on the shelf."

People from many different trades bought supplies at de Gardignano's shop and were likely to have shared both ideas and materials, Matthew surmised.

That possibility led to Berrie's examination of paint samples under an electronic microscope. She discovered rounded bits of powdered glass, only thousandths of an inch thick, in two paintings by Lorenzo Lotto — one in a red gown worn by St. Catherine, another in an orange-red coat worn by Joseph in a Nativity scene.

Glass was also discovered in a yellow pigment used in a Tintoretto painting of Jesus at the Sea of Galilee.

"They're also teaching me a lesson: to try to go beyond the bounds of what I know and what I think is right," Berrie said. "It's a good trick for an old artist to teach a new scientist something."

SALAD OF FRESH HERBS AND GREENS WITH FRIED EGGPLANT

1 small shallot, minced
2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon (or more) ground sumac* (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
7 tablespoons (or more) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 1/2 cups (loosely packed) fresh Italian parsley leaves
1 1/2 cups (loosely packed) arugula, torn if large
1 cup (loosely packed) small fresh basil leaves
1 cup (loosely packed) torn fresh sorrel or baby spinach leaves
1 cup (loosely packed) fresh mint leaves
1/3 cup (loosely packed) 1-inch pieces fresh chives
1/3 cup (loosely packed) fresh chervil leaves (optional)
2 10- to 12-ounce eggplants, stems cut off
Coarse kosher salt Nasturtium blossoms or other edible flowers (optional)





Whisk shallot, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon sumac, and cumin in small bowl. Gradually whisk in 4 tablespoons oil. Season dressing with salt and pepper. Combine herbs and greens in large bowl. (Dressing and salad can be made 2 hours ahead. Cover separately and chill.)
Using vegetable peeler, remove eggplant peel in vertical strips every 1 to 1 1/2 inches, making striped pattern. Cut eggplants crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick rounds. Place rounds in large colander. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt and toss to coat evenly. Let stand until rounds soften and release moisture, tossing occasionally, about 1 hour. Rinse rounds, 1 at a time, and press to release excess moisture. Arrange rounds in single layer on several thicknesses of paper towels. Pat dry with additional towels.

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry eggplant until golden and soft, adding more oil by tablespoonfuls as needed, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer eggplant to paper towels to drain.

Overlap eggplant rounds on platter. Sprinkle with pepper and more sumac, if desired. Toss herbs and greens with dressing; season to taste with salt and pepper. Mound salad atop eggplant. Garnish with nasturtium blossoms, if desired, and serve.

*A fruity and acidic seasoning powder made from ground dried sumac berries. It is available at Middle Eastern markets and by mail from Adriana's Caravan (adrianascaravan.com).

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Siberian police arrest bear for begging

MOSCOW (AFP) - A bear is reportedly being detained in a police cell after being arrested for begging in the western Siberian city of Divnogorsk.

According to the RIA-Novosti news agency, police picked up the female bear after reports she had been cajoling food from drivers parked at a roadside cafe.

"Capturing the bear didn't require much effort," a local police commander told the news agency, adding that the bear had obviously lived with humans for a long time.

She appeared to have fled from her owner or had been abandoned like a "useless toy", the officer said.

Despite her apparent familiarity with humans and good behaviour, the bear has been put behind bars, although the officer stressed it would be a temporary detention.

"We are feeding her honey and cake," he said.

Managers of the zoo in nearby Krasnoyarsk have refused to take the animal, saying they already had plenty of bears.

A former circus trainer has offered to give the bear a home if its owner doesn't come forward within two days.

The beggar is the second bear to be picked up this summer by police in Divnogorsk, a city of 30,000 on the Yenisey river, which is surrounded by dense Siberian forest or taiga.

AAAHHH.

A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty,

He said...no.

She asked him if he would want to be with her forever....

and he said no.

She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry,

and once again he replied with a no.

She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said....


You're not pretty you're beautiful.


I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever.


And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...

free gorilla bar .. but you gotta wait

From GeneBOB...concerning gorillas/slurpee's/sugar/kids/7-11's...

There are times when I'm really happy I don't have 4 children under 7 in tow.

This afternoon, I succumbed to the advertising and decided I must have one of those new tropical flavored Slurpee® Beverages ("available only at 7-11!"). So, I waddled down to the nearest one, and .. stopped dead in my tracks. There, in front of the Slurpee machine, was a Thirty-Something Mom with four kids in tow.

Half of these younguns were barefoot and appeared under 4 years old, but they all were trying to concoct The Perfect Frozen Beverage, mixing any number of the five available flavors. There was a small pool of what I hope was water on the floor. One decided (after pouring an entire drink) that s/he didn't like the flavor, and proceeded to pour it into the trough, where it will eventually melt and re-enter the water supply. It was then time to pour another. The mother had a look somewhere between dumbfoundedness and impartiality. She wasn't annoyed .. merely in a trance. After 3 or 4 minutes, this Band of Five somehow squeezed away from the Frozen Beverage area, and headed straight for the Pressed Sugar (candy) aisle. Although she passed within a few inches, there was no eye contact. She was probably afraid I'd try to sweep her off her feet with an appropriate pickup line. Trust me, it wasn't gonna happen, darlin'.

Being the Slurpee Wizard that I am (!), I plucked a Slurpee Cup from the Slurpee Rack, then attached the rounded Slurpee Lid. In a single, effortless stroke (!) I then poured myself what I hoped to be a delicious frozen concoction, leaving a little room in the lid for expansion (recall that I'm a Slurpee Wizard .. I don't make the Slurpee Virgin mistake of filling it to the top). It was then time to insert the Slurpee Straw, pay, and leave.

Ah, but that was not to be. Although it only took me 24 seconds (!) I now found myself in line behind The Party of Five. In typical Soccer Mom fashion, the mom was shocked to find that the clerk expected her to pay for 5 drinks and at least a dozen pieces of candy. There was no lecture about eating healthy .. the intent was to add as much sugar as possible into their tiny metabolisms and get back in the Yukon.
Deep Thought #71: Remember the old days, when a family of five was able to fit in a passenger car? Ah, nostalgia. I hope she gets 8 miles to the gallon and has to refuel twice a day.
Anyway, Mom finally found a debit card, and then it was time to learn how to use the card swiper. Apparently this is the first time she'd ever seen one of these contraptions, and the clerk (with a thick Indian accent) tried to explain. It wasn't working. And my Delicious Frozen Concoction was starting to melt. Depression began to set in. Two more people had joined me in line.

Eventually (12 minutes later?) it was my turn at the register. Apparently I was a prize winner (?!), as the clerk announced that I was entitled to a "free gorilla bar". She motioned behind me, saying something unintelligible about "lower shelf". I started pointing, hoping for a nod when I got close. The tactic worked. As my finger neared the Nature Valley™ Granola Bars, her face lit into a smile as wide as an elephant in Mumbai. The "gorilla bar" turned out to be a granola bar, so now I had both frozen and non-frozen Goodness to consume.

If it hadn't taken 16 minutes, and it wasn't 101F outside, it might've been better. Next time I want a Slurpee, I'll wait until 3am, when the younguns are asleep and mom's not at the 7-11, learning how to swipe her debit card.

By the way .. the melted tropical flavored Slurpee wasn't good. Next time, it'll be the old reliable Cherry Coke flavor. Indeed.

Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red Tomato












Gary Ibsen, who goes by the name of "Tomato Man", and is perhaps the most prolific tomato-geek of our time, has named a new variety of tomato "Clint Eastwood Rowdy Red", after the Rowdy Yates character the actor himself once portrayed.

According to Ibsen...
"This is one of those big, bold tasting tomatoes that is not for sissies. Although it has some of the highest sugar levels I've ever seen from a tomato, the sweetness is in the background and its fruity flavors are balanced beautifully with plenty of acidity, earthy nuances and complexity. It's a perfect tomato for eating fresh or canning."
We asked Ibsen for photos of the new pistol-packing tomato but he hasn't responded. His website says he'll be unveiling it to the public at the 14th Annual Carmel TomatoFest on September 11.

The tomato was actually developed by a man named Archie Millett, now 81 years old and living in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Archie claims to have been enjoying this Nightshade variety for years, and only now decided to bless the rest of the world with the finest of salsa and marinara makings.

Ibsen named the new tomato after Clint Eastwood to pay tribute to the actor's contributions to the Carmel-Monterey region of California. It's probably the best way he knows how.

Smoothies from the Amazon

The americanization of exotica continued on in full steam today as Smoothie King announced new flavors for their frosty-concoctions, proving once again that the tried-and-true nutrients like Vitamin A, C, E are so "yesterday".

Now, its stuff like "Goji Berries", "Acai", "Ginseng", and "Mangosteen" that's cool. Moreover, if it doesn't come from exotic places like Indonesia, the Himalayas, and the Amazon then you're not achieving your maximum health potential.

To this end, Smoothie King has created a new line of smoothies packed with these chic ingredients and are delivering them to farmers in Kansas, auto-workers in Kentucky, railroad engineers in Texas, and whereever Americans are demanding the health secrets of Rain Forest Pygmies and Balinese Islanders.

Expect to find new flavors, "Acai Adventure", "Green Tea Tango", "Passion Passport", "Go Goji", and "Mangosteen Madness", at Smoothie Kings everywhere.

WTF!!!! 'Idol' Bo Bice Recovering After Surgery


LAS VEGAS - "American Idol" finalist Bo Bice is recovering from surgery.

"Thanks to some incredibly kind prayers and words of support from family, friends and fans, Bo's surgery was a success," according to a statement on the performer's Web site.

The statement did not say what was wrong with Bice. An Alabama newspaper reported Sunday that the singer suffered from a stomach ailment and had surgery Friday at Desert Springs Hospital in Las Vegas. The paper quoted Bice's grandmother.

Last month, Bice broke his foot during a performance in Manchester, N.H.

He was in Las Vegas for the "American Idol Live!" tour.
****************
Ok More on this from a different newspaper..




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bo Bice Has Emergency Surgery

He may not wanna be, but Bo Bice has been sidelined.

After missing Thursday's concert on the American Idols Live! tour, the long-haired crooner underwent emergency surgery in Las Vegas on Friday to remove a blockage in his intestines.

Fans were disappointed when Bice failed to take the stage at Vegas' Thomas & Mack Arena last week and started up a "We want Bo!" chant, which eventually prompted season four Idol winner Carrie Underwood to announce that the singer had been hospitalized.

According to a posting on the Website for his band, Sugarmoney, the operation was successful, though Bice reportedly must return home to rest for a minimum of six weeks, which would mean that he would not be returning to the Idols Live! tour.

The American Idol runner-up's grandmother, "Granny Madge" Schofield, told the Decatur Daily News that Bice "has had ulcers most of his life" and is also prone to food poisoning.

"But his problem now doesn't have anything to do with either," Schofield said.

Bice's actual diagnosis remains unclear--to both his public and to his Granny Madge.

"I don't know the diagnosis. But I'll tell you what I do know. If prayer works, Bo will be all right," Schofield said.

It's been a rough summer for the Alabama rocker. Earlier this month, he broke his foot during a show in Manchester, New Hampshire, but vowed to continue performing.

"There's no keeping me from the tour," Bice told People magazine at the time.

Then, last week in Los Angeles, Bice's half-brother, John Cohran, and his pregnant wife were hospitalized after their car slid into an 18-wheeler on their way home from an Idols Live! show. Both have since been released, per the Decatur Daily News.

Bice's mother, Nancy Downes, was previously scheduled to go visit Cohran in Los Angeles Monday, but changed her plans late last week after learning that Bice would need emergency treatment and flew to his side instead.

Since undergoing surgery, Bice has missed two shows in California. As of Monday afternoon, there was no official statement from the promoters of the Idols Live! tour regarding the singer's health.

Clay? where ya going?

Clay Aiken Leaving L.A. for Raleigh, N.C.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Clay Aiken is selling his Los Angeles-area home to return to his North Carolina hometown.


The Raleigh native refused to tell The News & Observer of Raleigh exactly where he's building his new home.

"Whether this ride lasts for one year or 10 years, I want to have a home base," said Aiken, 26, the runner-up on "American Idol" in 2003.

The pop star has rarely been at the Mediterranean-style, six-bedroom home he bought last fall for $2.3 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 7,800-square-foot home was new when the singer bought it and rests on more than an acre in a private, rural area of the San Fernando Valley that is zoned to allow horses, the Times said. The house has 6 1/2 bathrooms, a swimming pool, a spa, a gazebo and a sports court.

Aiken listed the house in March for $2.5 million and expects to close escrow next month, the Times reported.

Aiken's mother, Faye Parker, decorated his California home with North Carolina furniture. "All the stuff, curtains, fabrics and whatever else is coming, too," he said.

what is it with the NUNS this week?


TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan has withdrawn an anti- AIDS campaign ad featuring a smiling nun holding a condom after it sparked an outcry from Roman Catholics, local media said on Wednesday.

The poster, which shows the nun holding the condom with both hands and saying "Although I don't need one, even I know," had been removed from all condom machines in Taipei hospitals, subway stations and elsewhere.

"As a nun, I can't agree with their way of expressing things," a church spokeswoman said Wednesday. "This is a serious insult."

Nuns take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and the Vatican considers all forms of contraception a sin.

Local media said the plan had been to use someone with a "positive image" to promote the use of condoms to prevent

AIDS.

There are about 300,000 Catholics on the island of 23 million people.

Nun's wild dancing earns her a reprimand ....OOOPS!

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A Belgian nun's acrobatic and indecorous dancing with a missionary during the Catholic World Youth Day in Germany over the weekend earned her a reprimand from her mother superior, a Belgian paper said Tuesday.

Daily Het Laatste Nieuws showed pictures of a dancing Johanne Vertommen being held up in the air by the missionary, and then clinging to him with her legs wrapped around his body.

"I wouldn't do this at home but at such occasions I get carried away by the enthusiasm of the group," the 29-year-old told the paper later.

"My mother superior raised the issue today: she thinks I should watch out a bit and bear in mind that I represent our community," Vertommen said.

Pope Benedict attended the celebration at the Marienfeld, outside Cologne, in the presence of some 700,000 people.
