Book Suggestion: Knight Life by Peter David

The legendary King Arthur emerges from an enchanted cave and returns to reign once again in Camelot. Only it’s 1500 years later and Camelot is now known as New York, New York. Hardly a fairy tale city. “Because New Yorkers are all crazy” and they are not in the habit of calling anybody “Your highness”.

So don’t think you can just show up and take over. You have to run a campaign for a public office and win the votes of the people. Running for Mayor shouldn’t be too hard. Especially since you still have Merlin as your trusted counselor.

Who is Peter Ackroyd? Biographer, Historian, Poet, Novelist, Etc.

Who is Peter Ackroyd?


Hmmm ... let me think.  Is he the guy in the picture?



Nope!  But you're close!  The guy in the picture below is Charles Dickens.  Peter Ackroyd wrote a biography about Dickens.  He also wrote a bio about William Shakespeare, in case the mention about the Charles Dickens bio is not impressive enough.  :)  If that's not impressive enough, then if you like biographies or biographical notes about celebrated, it might interest you to know that he wrote a bunch of books about famous people like Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Isaac Newton and more.  His series is called Ackroyd's Brief Lives.

The History of Astrology and the Gifts of the Magi

Just read an interesting blog post about the history of astrology and how it was applied in the beginning. (Reference: The Brilliant History of Astrology on Earth | Literacy Base

I believe the initial use of the science of astrology, "in the beginning", i.e. to predict weather for agriculture purposes, natural disasters, etc., is its correct use or application. 

The post goes on to state that people began to say they could apply it in human affairs for success. I believe that could possibly be when scam and con artists began to leave their indelible marks on the history of mankind. With one exception.

*The star that led the wise men to Jesus.*

The visit of the Magi may be a part of the so-called Christmas tradition but more importantly … it's a true story.  

It's an integral part of the most beautiful story every told.

Christmas Tradition: The Gifts of the Magi - Daily Two Cents

Every year during the month of December, many people direct their minds to the story about the birth of Jesus, revered by faithful Christians as the Savior of the world. Although the nativity scene always shows the three wise men (also called the three kings) adoring a newborn baby and bearing gifts, the biblical account indicates that their visitation did not occur on the night that Mary gave birth.

All Those "ites"

Now that you know how to read you can read the Bible for yourself. That's what my momma said.



Most Bible readers (from my generation and the generations in the centuries before mine) will likely say what struck them when the first read the scriptures was all those "begats". Some people will skip over verses, even whole chapters if they see that word. The word "begat" usually connects a string of names that are very difficult to pronounce.

For me, one of things noted when turning the pages of the Old Testament starting with Genesis and working my way to the Revelation was all those "ites". The names for the inhabitants of different ancient nations.

Hittites, Asherites, Jebusites, Amorites, Amakelites, Girgashites, Moabites, Perizzites, Canaanites, and of course, Israelites.

Then it changed from "ites" to "ans".

Syrians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Romans.

Suffixes in the English language:

ite = follower or supporter

an = pertaining to
* ian = belonging to

Belonging to? Hmmm?  Like Christians?

Yes. Only Christ is not a nation. Christianity and the gospel message of peace and goodwill is not restricted by man-made boundaries. But it's an observation as to how the suffixes were used by the scholarly translators.

JAT. (Just a thought.) :)

The Gifts of the Magi – Daily Two Cents

“Though one can question the total number of men that comprise what we refer to as “The Magi”, everybody accepts that there were 3 gifts and these offerings were gold, frankincense and myrrh.”


The account of the birth of Jesus recorded in New Testament scriptures is well known. But there is much that is not revealed. The gifts the wise men brought for the baby Jesus? What became of them? Something to ponder? Some things I pondered.

Online Writing and Revenue-Sharing Communities

  • Are you a thinker?  (Aren't we all?)  
  • Do you like to write? (I prefer to write.  Talking is not one of my strong points.)  
  • Do you maintain a diary?  (No.)  
However ... Blogging is almost like thinking, writing and maintaining a diary, only you can use it to earn income.  

My blogging escapades started a couple of years back.  So far I have not earned consistent monthly income.  But the fact that income has been earned gives hope and motivates me to persist.  There are many blog publishing platforms that are free to try out.  Free really means free!  Some allow more customization than others.  All the ones I've tried so far have treated me graciously.  

What is frustrating is when something finally works right and smoothly.  Then something changes!  You don't know what.  You don't when.  You don't know why.  All you know is you're frustrated and can't think of a valid reason why a product or service that was working fine and consistently - how or why did it get broken??!  Have had that problem.  Used great platforms.  Some got shut down totally!  Used great tools to supplement the process.  An update here causes an out-date there - the plugin doesn't work and you go:  (O.o) "What happened?" (???)

Eh!  Whatever!  You keep on keeping on.  My late mother used to say:  "Child!  Do you see that sun shining in the sky?  God put it there.  It has never failed to rise.  But when mankind makes something?  Don't put too much faith in it.  It'll probably break!"

Anyway, in addition to my own home business blogs, I am currently using 3 different revenue-sharing platforms and sure do hope they don't break!


There are three new online writing communities that are really starting to grow. They use the Wordpress blogging platform.  The first two are PPV (pay-per-view) and the last one is PPC (pay-per-click).  Check 'em out!
