    Knowledge is power. “Information” is not always correct and people need to learn that apparently. But, yes, I like that site!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning B. and everyone. We would like to think that knowledge is something we acquire and information is something we share.
    Hopping to get news today from Team Snowhook. Also hopping the banquet went well. Who are good dogs? Snowhook dogs, that’s who!

    Good morning and Happy Groundhog Day. 6 more weeks of winter, so Phil says! Truthfully, probably more than that in northern Illinois!

    Thank you for sharing the website. I agree with both of the above comments. Today though, we have too much fake news and alternative facts!

    Congrats Snowhook!! I wonder how difficult it was for the dogs to run their best after taking such a long trip to the race. The Iditarod starts just outside their back door. And Mom was so excited to see that Truman ran and finished the race!! He was a large puppy when Mom met him!

    Greetings!

    Happy Groundhog’s Day!

    Here in New York, Staten Island Chuck did not see his shadow…

    Thanks for the link, Spence!

    James Joyce’s Ulysses was published on this day in 1922.

    HOH: Iditarod might be returning to Fairbanks for a start. Lots of snow in Anchorage but not on a portion of the trail. Do you want to make reservations in Fairbanks with the idea of cancelling later if necessary? Try Pike Waterfront Lodge first. You will be closer to the start.

    Does Joyce’s Ulysses have the longest sentence without being a run on? (Of course we are counting on B. for the information.)

    CHobbitz, thank you for the info. We are going to have to discuss this.

    Congratulations, Opal Mae and Happy Groundhog’s Day to All. I understand that the groundhog saw his shadow, so we’ll have 6 more weeks to play in the snow. I love it.
    Here’s a new month, a day late. I hope it’s a good one for everybody.

    The entire last chapter of Ulysses, which is 43 pages long, is one “sentence.” (Note the quotation marks.) We are in the mind of Molly Bloom before she falls asleep. I think I’ve mentioned before that I always used the last page of the novel when I was demonstrating to my students the necessity of punctuation to make reading easier.

    By the way, Ulysses is filled with run-on sentences.

    B. Thanks. Mom has never had to read or study it, thank dog. Thought we’d heard that discussion before. HEY, the Herd heard ????

    To be fair, Joyce was writing “realistically” using “Stream of Consciousness” technique. (A stream runs in one direction, meets some obstacle and changes course, then hits a stone and changes course, etc.) And we don’t use punctuation while we are thinking. It is realistically the way the mind works. Sit and think for a while and try to notice how your thoughts change from one thing to the next based on some “strange” connection. (I’ve always found S or C technique fascinating.)

    B. That sounds like lying in bed at night looking at the ceiling and waiting for sleep to come after something awakened you.

  21. B.Stover

    HOH: Yes, that is a good example.

    I need to clarify something: Stream of Consciousness technique does not mean that the writer does not use punctuation. Virginia Woolf and William Faulkner both use the technique but they use punctuation. What I mean by describing Joyce’s use as “realistic” is that he chose not to use punctuation and that makes it more difficult to read.

    I’ll stop now.

    TYB: my favorite photo of youse. I am a sucker for Lambchop (and an handsome dog). I remember reading an interview of Shari Lewis who was extremely talented, btw. She said whenever she invited guests to her home for dinner, they would always show up with a package of lamb chops to give her. She found that odd and annoying.

    BTW…I read somewhere that it is not knowledge that is power, but rather the application of knowledge that is power. Interesting distinction. Or not.

    Hey, I have an ID again. Went to get a replacement ID today, and the nice gov’ment employee was actually helpful. I thought I’d have a problem when the first one at the door told me to press the second option on the screen, but, umm, yeah, she clued in eventually too. LOL

    And of course, Hildegard was wonderful. We have to work on distinguishing different kinds of doors though. Like “Outside” doesn’t necessarily mean “the nearest door”.
