Build Your Own Private Renaissance Library. It'll be Great Reading!

"Your library is your paradise."
-- Desiderius Erasmus
(1466 {69?} - 1536) - Scholar, theologian, humanist, author, Renaissance man.

 Private library of Frans and Gertrude Blom in Casa Na Bolom. Français : Bibliothèque personnelle de Frans et Gertrude Blom à Na Bolom. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Several years back we relocated from Texas to Maryland.  It was a job transfer. For a few months we lived in temporary quarters. Found a classified ad in a Texas newspaper that led me to a women-owned business. They rented out temporary housing. We were set up in a lovely home in Bethesda, Maryland and what was awesome about this house was that it had a private library. My dream home would definitely have to have a library. But what kind of books would be on the shelves? For sure there would definitely be books about the Renaissance.  (FYI.  We're back in Texas now.  Cost of living is much more reasonable and you seldom have to shovel snow!)

Are you a Renaissance enthusiast?

Entertainment: Celebrities: In Memory of: Doris Day (1922 - 2019)

Must say good-bye to "America's girl next door" and Hollywood legend, Doris Day.  She had a major influence on my childhood development.  She charmed me.  That was her appeal.  I think she charmed everyone; publicly and privately.  I loved all of her movies.  No really.  There is not one movie she starred in that I did not like.  



For me, the most memorable movie was the one where she sang "Que sera, sera" and she had to land that airplane: The Man Who Knew Too Much.  It was a departure from her usually light-hearted comedy roles.  That movie was very serious and she played her part quite convincingly.  I have wonderful memories of this fine actress.  

She wasn't included in My Top 10 List of Iconic Female Celebrities' even though she suits the definition for "iconic". It's because she deserves a spotlight all her own.

Quotes and Notes : Women in History: Countess of Blessington

Quotes found at Thoughtful Mind that may provide a peek into this gentle lady’s true nature:
  • “Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart.”
  • “Superstition is only the fear of belief, while religion is the confidence.”


If you like to collect quotes or short biographical notes about women throughout history in various walks of life, please add this post to your collection.
Margaret, Countess of Blessington (1789 – 1849); Artist: Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769 – 1830); Wikimedia Commons
Marguerite (Power) Gardiner, Countess of Blessington was an Irish novelist.  A woman of high society, she was well known, particularly among literary circles as she had a literary salon at Gore House, Kensington.  One might think from the portrait she led a protected and cherished life, but a quick review of a few biographical facts will reveal much that can not be seen just looking at pretty face.  Deemed a woman of “rare beauty, generosity, and wit”, she wrote essays and sketches of London life.  She and the Romantic English poet, Lord Byron, appear to have been very close friends.  Her husband introduced them.  She wrote a book about their conversations.  There was at least the “appearance” of a friendship, however, some say she lived in her own world of make-believe when it came to their relationship.


To know more about the Countess here are a few suggested bio links:

Ways Women Can Support Other Women

" ... While certain forms of competition can be healthy, the kind of claws out, Housewives of Atlanta style undermining that many women partake in is more worthy of the unflattering term, cat fight. As women gain momentum and presence in all aspects of life, we would do well to take heed of Albright’s ominous assertion. ... "

Quotes About Texas ~ Kinky and Others

Rummaging through some of my old content and material and found this two quotes. Have a board on Pinterest that I maintain called "ALL THINGS TEXAS". Published this post and tacked on an image just so I could pin them. :)

 "The folks in Mississippi are saying, 'Thank God for Texas.' "   -Kinky Friedman.  (Richard S. "Kinky" Friedman (1944 - ), American singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain.)


 "I want to be a Texan 24 hours a day." -James Dean  (James Byron Dean (1931 - 1955), American film actor and cultural icon, who died at age 24 in a tragic car accident.  Best embodied by the title of his most celebrated film, "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955). NOTE:  I've heard a lot about that movie.  But I don''t remember watching it.  I remember Mr. Dean from the movie "Giant" with Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor.)


Mr. Dean is pictured on the LIFE magazine cover sandwiched between Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee.

My Favorite Power Quote 4 (3, 2, and 1)

Isn't this like one of the best motivational quotes you've ever heard?  Something new, just recently started and as you can see by the post title this is the fourth quote added the collection.  The other three were shared at my other blogs.  






Gifts for the Tolkien Enthusiast


One might think that I got the idea of power quotes from a site like BrainyQuote, which is a great site if you need to find a quote by a famous or notable person very quickly.  But that's not how it came to me.  You see being a student of the Bible, you have what are called "memory verses".  Particular scriptures that you want to memorize and be able to recall when needed.  Well there used to be a religious publication (apologies for not being able to remember the name) and they had something referred to as "power verses".  A memory verse that gave you power!  It's like a "Get thee behind me Satan" verse you use to thwart those who try to trouble you.  Yeah.  You think of the verse instead of punching the person in the face or yelling at them.  Don't know if this is a technique used in anger management classes, but it works for me! 


At any rate, taking the idea a step further, because quote collecting is my hobby and blogging is my home business endeavor, the two were joined in marriage and so far the union seems to be quite useful!

My Top 10 List of Iconic Female Celebrities

In America, we love to apply the word “icon” to people who sort of serve as symbols or are symbolic of something much larger than themselves, and are representative of an ideal that we, as individuals, hope to achieve in life. It's almost as if these people are idols. Almost.




A better way to explain our usage of this term would be by sharing my first time hearing it applied to a well-known figure. My first time hearing the word used was a report where people were speaking of Lee Iacocca. What did this man do to have people call him an “icon”? He's an American businessman, in the automobile industry, who (based on my recollection of events) brought the Chrysler Corporation back to life. Evidently, because of his prowess as a business warrior, he stepped up, took the helm as CEO of ailing and failing business entity, revived it and steered to success. For accomplishing this impossible feat, people showered praises on him as if he were a god of the American automotive industry.


As time passed, the word “icon” started popping up everywhere and is especially used for entertainers, such as, Madonna. Why is she an icon? “Madonna could be considered one of the most successful women of all time.” (Quote source: Madonna: Icon (and Single Working Mother with Custody Issues) | The Huffington Post)


Another example? Beyoncé was selected as the 2016 CFDA Fashion Icon. (CFDA = Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc.)


Once read an article published at Listverse.com about Hollywood suicides. The full title of the article is “10 Iconic Actresses Who Tragically Ended Their Lives”. After reviewing the list of female celebrities, the facts presented about their deaths were indeed tragic, but describing the actresses as “iconic” kind of made me bristle. It didn't seem to jive with other people in the entertainment industry who were being described as “iconic”.


So! Decided to compile my own list of actresses who should be considered “iconic”. Nixed the requirement that that they had to have committed suicide.


Hmmm …? Now where would be the best place to start to find those sort of people very quickly? The iconic Life Magazine. Of course!



Here's my list of ten (10) female iconic celebrities (not all are actresses, but they are famous or recognizable). The parenthetical notes are my rationale or reasons why these women measure up to the criteria that sets them apart as icons.

Movie Review : 'Mahogany' Taught the True Value of Being a Success

"Success is nothing without someone you love to share it with."


That's my takeaway quote from the 1975 film "Mahogany".

Agree or disagree?


There was once a time when Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams were an "item"; for movie couples, that is. They had great onscreen chemistry but never a real-life romance.

They had a romantic relationship in the film Mahogany (1975).  A movie that is memorable for its really nice theme song and great fashion; especially that Bob Mackie rainbow dress Ms. Ross wore in one of the scenes. When it comes to fashion, beauty, and style though, in real life, Ms. Ross was and still is one of the best-dressed women in the entertainment business; onscreen and off. Click through to view a fabulous gown she's wearing in the video for this September 2014 article:

Diana Ross : Still a 'Supreme' Performer

Nothing much to say about this motion picture that you can't look up on Wikipedia. That quote about success struck a chord with me though.  That's it!  That's my movie review.

Always Laugh When You Can ... | We Heart It

Started using WHI (We Heart It). Know what you're thinking. There's Pinterest, Scoop.it, StumbleUpon, etc. Why create another set of collections? Why? Because they share really good stuff on WHI that is different from my findings elsewhere on the web and because it's so easy to click that little “heart” button on the images. I have a Tumblr blog and lots of folks on Tumblr use it. That's how I found the site. 

This lovely quote by Lord Byron is my 100th “heart”. ♥

Collectible Quotes: Einstein

Enjoy collecting great quotes. Found this one today on Amit Agarwal's Google+ profile. Coincidentally (or intentionally) he seems to have a habit of explaining complicated matters very simplistically. I like that! :)  

His bragging rights? He is India's first professional blogger. I'd say that's something to brag about.

He also founded Digital Inspiration, a how-to tech site that's been around or almost a decade; since 2004.  That's something to brag about too! Glad to have found this guy.  Added him to my circles.

  Einstein quote



My Worry-Free Philosophy (Humor and Serious Truth)

“Revenge it's a kiss, this time I won't miss, now I've got you in my sight.”

( Lyrics from GoldenEye - http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/tinaturner/goldeneye.html )

I love me some Tina Turner. Her being picked to sing a James Bond theme song? So worthy to be chosen to become a member of the same club as Dame Shirley Bassey. She performed this song well, but alas … Revenge is not a part of my worry-free philosophy. 




The advice in the image above (found at glitter-graphics.com) says: “Never go to bed angry. Stay up and plot your revenge.”

Eh! That's great for a joke! But not a route one should take in real life.

 Never go to bed angry. Anger is an emotion that you can fully control. CONTROL IT!! Anger, more often than not, makes you do things you regret for a long long long time.

Say what? Jesus got angry with the money changers in the temple? Yeah well, you're still trying to get to heaven. Don't screw up your chances! Jesus is already there! He can lock the gates!! ☺


Also, don't give me that crap about anger management or you'll make me angry!!  


 Stay up and ... Stay up? WHAT???!!! I get precious little sleep as it is!! You want me to choose between beauty rest versus wrinkles, extra gray hair, and bloodshot eyes? What are my other options?


 Plot my revenge? Plotting is needed when writing a book or a script for a movie. If I have that kind of time to spare and can spend it on plotting, might as well write a book. Why not? I'm wide awake anyway!! You never know. Could be another Harry Potter series.

So the bottom line is: 
Revenge is _______________. In my life, it's a blank and I'm never going to fill it in.



Like to read more of my worry-free philosophy? Click this link: My Worry Free Philosophy You have my assurances that none of the quips and quotes were borrowed from Erma Bombeck.



IN MEMORY OF: Erma Bombeck (1927 – 1996) 
Ms. Bombeck is a beloved American humorist. She was noted for using the vehicle of comedy to aptly and succinctly express practical wisdom and advice encapsulated in witty, terse, hilarious statements.


March is Women's History Month and it seemed fitting to honor her and supply a link to an article which shares some of her selected quotations: http://womenshistory.about.com/cs/quotes/a/qu_erma_bombeck.htm

What is a Universal Language of Light?

Sharing a link to an article written by fellow freelance writer

What is a Universal Language of Light?




  • Quote extracted from the article: “Modern research confirms the most ancient form of Hebrew to be a natural language; the alphabetic forms emerging from the phosphate flare patterns of the brain.”
 
The Tower of Babel, c.1563 This is my first time learning, hearing or reading about a “Universal Language of Light”. The research results do make you wonder. However, I am convinced that God invented all human languages because I believe the biblical account of the tower of Babel. If Genesis 11 is true , then any human language is a “language of The Light”.

  • The article also contains an interesting question: “Is DNA the next Internet?”
It seems that Russian scientists have made some claims. Next? I’m not trying to split hairs or “strain at a gnat and swallow a camel”, but DNA was here first! Just sayin’. This article is fascinating!!
