The Water Cure has drawn instant comparisons to The Handmaid’s Tale, and not just because author Margaret Atwood called it “a gripping, sinister fable.” The book centers on Grace, Lia, and Sky, three sisters who live on an isolated island with their mother and their father, whom they call King. When their father disappears, their lives—as well as everything they’ve been told about the outside world—are upended.
IN THE FUTURE, FOR STARTERS, PEOPLE WILL HAVE BLUE BUTTS: IN THE FUTURE, FOR STARTERS, PEOPLE WILL HAVE BLUE BUTTS. ORYX AND CRAKE IS A 2003 NOVEL BY CANADIAN AUTHOR MARGARET ATWOOD. SHE HAS DESCRIBED THE NOVEL AS SPECULATIVE FICTION AND ADVENTURE ROMANCE, RATHER THAN PURE SCIENCE FICTION, BECAUSE IT DOES NOT DEAL WITH THINGS “WE CAN’T YET DO OR BEGIN TO DO”, YET GOES BEYOND THE AMOUNT OF REALISM SHE ASSOCIATES WITH THE NOVEL FORM
Jerimiah Winthrop, a bachelor lived in a village not far from the Big City just east of his quaint bungalow on the west side of the local IGA store. The front of his house a large bay window jutting out an extra 10 feet, Its WOODEN FRAME, stained pillows odd Colour, had a odor yet to be defined or discussed. It was a place that encouraged his tendency to feel his grief and sadness. Not a living soul wanted to sit on his one of a kind Designers Couch, purchased as the 5 & Dime Boutique down on Main and 32nd Street. For that reason , every day he sat on it, unhappy gazing out this huge window, ever since his Party the whole community was invited too. He only wanted everyone to have peek and take a seat on his treasure , The Designer Couch. Only one person, however did not attend this disastrous soiree as it turned out to be
As Jerimiah did this routine the 3rd Friday of the month 2 weeks before his 45 birthday, he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Beatrice Fishbone. She was a gentle hero of a questionable reasons yet with a figure as lean a “filet of sole” . The gossip was, platies, exercises using 3 bouncy Balls, a daily 10 ounces of carrot & kale juice, with a Mickie of Vodka, shaken, not stirred , straight up with a garnish of sliced Beets was her secret.
Then! my Gosh! Miss Beatrice, is coming, Yes …. up to my picket fence gate that’s been hanging on one hinge since 3 past Octobers’, when a vintage Mini MG 2 seater smashed into it, the get away car used in a string of bank robberies through out the lower 22 counties surrounding the river that supplies water to that Big City Jeremiah had only been to Twice.
The Door Bell rang. His Budgie Bird started to dance and squawk in it’s oversized gage that occupied his entire dining room. Both bell he had not heard that sound since the Avon lady dropped of samples of face cream and lipstick 3 1/2 years ago.
Jerimiah, flustered and in such a sweat jump up scurried to the door, paused and took a quick glance in the mirror beside the umbrella rack; thank goodness he did. A piece of Spinach was wedged between his 2 front teeth, from last night snack before the 11 o’clock News, he always watched on Tuesday’s. Tucking in shirt, a quick spritz of Old Spice he reached for the front door knob, putting on his biggest smile, a glow in his eyes opened the door .
Their eyes met and both looked each other up and down, Beatrice smiled, it was her beet stained shirt Jerimiah noticed first, she quickly apologized, for it was because her washing machine has been broken for 6 months and the laundry was piling up It was the only shirt, she wore only six time. It was literally, the cleanest piece of clothing she had at the moment, yet the least important thing on her mind. it was what she said next, the beet stain irrelevant. She swung the screen door open, confident, her lipstick a peach gloss, her mascara a olive green, before Jerimiah could blink an eye, she was in his dining room.
Scaring the daylights out of the Buggy Bird, she plopped her gym bag on top of the cage. she unzipped it reached in, needing 2 hands just to lift it. pulled out a 15 litre vintage Vagabond Thermos 1935, almost mint condition. It’s what she said next, Jerimiah smiled even blushed a little, the first time since Grade 8.” “The gossip you hear it is not. I do use 3 Bouncy Balls at Pilates workout but the carrot / kale crap, that is Rubbish. It’s my Vagabond filled with tequila Margaretta’s for a party of 26 I have before. is the reason why. Filet of soul Figure, some of us are just lucky, I guess. . So how’s about you get us a couple of Dixie cups an ashtray and I’ll go have a seat, because the next time I walk by your bungalow, You’ll be smiling cause the whole village is about to see us making whoopie on the Designers Couch everybody else thinks stinks, ugly, and should be burned at the county dump. I just think you and me need 8.75 months , of Vagabond bonding onyour Designers Couch Sotheby’s will be asking 2 million opening Bid. Jerimiah Winthrop got 6 million, 11.5 months later bought another Buggy Bird and all 4, yes Beatrice moved to that big City “BIGCITY” its name known for it beaches, temperate climate and 2 for 1 Happy Hour cocktails 12 hours a day 7 day a week. They are currently looking for a new Couch

It’s oddly spotted, warty walnuts, which are Blue . Rarely have such,like as ugly a pansy could be, reminded me more of the buttocks of a tiny wee dog .Its cherries are as flawless as exemplary, tender peach pits, which have been tossed sadly in a neo- magical, scrawny drizzle (splash!).Naturally, it has all the glory of holes, which once ate calmly. There is nothing like holes that one eats calmly. Lest not forget the little, loopy look of a lonely lemons tearful nibbling. Otter likes its ugly pansy look. Daddy likes its Blue walnuts.

Jews around the world ceLooklebrate Purim, which begins this year on the evening of 15 March and ends the next night. The holiday commemorates an episode said to date to the 4th Century BC, recorded in the Book of Esther, in which a plot to kill all of the Persian empire’s Jews was foiled by the Jews’ leader Mordechai and by the king’s Jewish wife, Esther. The holiday is traditionally celebrated with gifts, recitations and a celebratory meal. Here, Haredi Jews read from the Book of Esther in a synagogue in Bnei Brak, Israel. But it is in Tel Aviv that the celebration is one of the liveliest, with a massive street party and live music.
Las Fallas – Valencia Spain 15 to 19 March
From 15 to 19 March, the Spanish city of Valencia explodes – sometimes literally – with the festival of Las Fallas. The city’s different quarters compete over who can have the most impressive volley of firecrackers, and on the final night, called the Night of Fire, enormous papier-mâché figures called ninots, often satirizing politicians or other well-known figures, are burned in a blaze of glory. For those who prefer flowers to fire, there is also the Ofrenda de Flores a la Virgen de los Desamparados (Floral Offering to Our Lady of the Forsaken) on 17 and 18 March, when people wear traditional regional dress, dance to folk music and offer bouquets to the Virgin Mary’s

From January until the beginning of April, some 10,000 grey whales gather along Mexico’s Baja Peninsula to mate and give birth. These gentle giants of the sea world, at up to 16m long and 40 tonnes, are otherwise quite elusive, spending most of their time underwater. During whale-watching season, though, it is common for them to swim right up to tourists’ boats – sometimes even allowing themselves to be stroked. (Omar Torres/AFP/Getty)
Holi – 17 March 2014
According to Hindu tradition, the god Krishna, who had a dark complexion, worried the fair-skinned goddess Radha would never accept him. Krishna’s mother, frustrated, told him to colour Radha’s face however he wanted. Today, Hindus around the world celebrate Krishna’s playful application of colour to Radha’s face by doing the same, with people painting one another’s faces, frolicking in the streets and spraying coloured water and powders, as shown here in Vrindavan, India. This year, the holiday takes place on 17 March. Celebrations happen throughout India, but for one of the most boisterous, vivacious festivals, head to Delhi, which includes the traditional Street dancing & colour throwing. India Truly a Nation who celebrates LIFE!
Among Nostradamus’ more dire
predictions about the future is the threat of international war destabilizing
global security. Nostradamus’ followers point to a particular passage, Quatrain
Century VIII, which mentions the East weakening the West. Century VIII 59-60
reads: “Twice put up and twice cast down, the East will also weaken the West. “It’s
adversary after several battles chased by sea will fail at time of need. “First
in Gaul first in Romania, over land and sea will be against the English and the
Parisians. “Marvelous deeds by that great troop, violent, the wild beast will
lose Lorraine. “Further passages in the same quatrain speak of the “holy
temple” being plundered, France falling to ruin and a butcher “gaining an
empire through force. AND WORLD WAR 3, shall be 27 years… “CONFLICT IN THE 21ST CENTURY “

When was the darkroom invente Leonardo da Vinci put the word of Camera Obscura as his writing record in the century 14th. After Louis Daguerre invented the daguerreotype process and it developed to the darkroom as worked in the tent or dark room to develop the film and papers processing in the 18 century
The camera obscura used by the ancients embodied within it the principle of the photographic camera but was lacking, as yet, in one essential ingredient : and this was a means by which a permanent record could be made of the scene projected by the lens.
Modern film photography depends for its success on the fact that chemicals, most notably the bromide and chloride of silver, are affected by the pattern of light and shade can become visible by a series of appropriate manipulations involving treating the film with chemicals. Although straightforward enough, this principle long eluded capture. Amongst the first to investigate the action of light on chemicals was the German scientist Johann Heinrich Schulze who showed in 1725 that a solution of silver nitrate and chalk held in a glass bottle darkens when placed out in the sun. Almost a century later, Thomas Wedgewood, son of Josiah Wedgewood, the founder of the pottery empire, made an interesting experiment in which leaves and other botanical specimens were placed over paper moistened with silver nitrate. When left in the sun, the border which received light darkened leaving a clear silhouette of the opaque object.
The first person to succeed in creating a permanent image using a camera obscura was a Frenchman named Joseph Nicephore France is often regarded as the birthplace of photography. Niepce was experimenting as early as 1816 with a camera obscura hoping to record a picture on a chemically treated stone used bitumen spread over a pewter plate as his sensitive surface and succeeded in obtaining a positive picture in a camera obscur . This crude photograph requiring a camera exposure of about eight hours is the world’s first photograph taken in a camera and is still in existence today.
NICEPHORE + DAGUERRE
Louis Daguerre was a contemporary of Niepce and worked in the show business, staging dioramas with spectacular lighting effects. Daguerre’s invention was made public in 1839 and became an instant success worldwide. The first successful portrait in America using this method was of Miss Catherine Draper; it was made in 1840
TALBOT + DAGUERRE + NICEPHORE
While the world was witnessing the marvel of the daguerreotype, a quiet revolution was taking place in England. William Henry Fox Talbot, landowner and amateur scientist, found himself fascinated with the camera obscura and began his own experiments trying to record a scene on sensitized paper
The would-be artist was William Henry Fox Talbot (1800–1877). A graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, and a recently elected Liberal member of Parliament in the House of Commons, Talbot was a true polymath. His intellectual curiosity of of mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, and botany; philosophy and philology; Egyptology, the classics, and art history. He had published four books and twenty-seven scholarly articles on a variety of subjects and was a fellow of the Astronomical, Linnean, and Royal Societies. ” I found that the faithless pencil had only left traces on the paper melancholy to behold.” He was quoted saying A young English gentleman on his honeymoon sat sketching by the shore of Lake Como early in October 1833, one eye pressed close to a camera lucida.
It seemed a simple task to trace the features of the village buildings, lake, and distant mountains with his pencil. But alas, it only seemed simple, he later recalled, “for when the eye was removed from the prism—in which all looked beautiful . Talbot worked little on his invention between the sunny days of 1835 and January 1839, when the stunning news arrived that a Frenchman, Deguerre had invented a wholly different means of recording camera pictures with dazzling precision on metal plates Talbot next tried making pictures in a camera obscura. By 1842 he had devised a satisfactory method of obtaining a negative. Talbot spent the last twenty-five years of his life developing and perfecting an effective photogravure process.
