Conan On What Is Best In Life

Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?

Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.

Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?

Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

Mongol General: That is good! That is good.

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line


Psalm 107:

23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

OLD SCHOOL MAN: Gran Torino and the 31 Old School Man Habits of Walt Kowalski

My Friend and one of our Fellow Lexicans had this link at Facebook this morning.
Got some of those things I remember from Dad, Uncles, Great Uncles and those Dads of my childhood friends.
Perhaps we need a return to these again?
I thought it might be interesting to all of you out there, in the 'sphere.
I found it to be so.
The link is right here:  http://www.deathvalleymag.com/2010/04/20/gran-torino-and-the-31-old-school-man-habits-of-walt-kowalski/#more-3675
I am going to have to book mark the Death Valley Magazine for further reference.
BTW, Kanani is over on the blogroll, http://kitchendispatch.blogspot.com/
