But to see her was to love her

But to see her was to love her love, but her, and love her forever.

Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759 in the village of Alloway, two miles south of Ayr. His parents, Willian Burnes[s] and Agnes Broun, were tenant farmers but they ensured their son received a relatively good education and he began to read avidly. The works of Alexander Pope, Henry Mackenzie and Laurence Sterne fired Burns’s poetic impulse and relationships with the opposite sex provided his inspiration. Handsome Nell, for Nellie Kilpatrick, was his first song.

But to see her was to love her, love but her, and love her forever. Robbie Burns

As fair art thou, my bonnie “lass, So deep in luve am I; And I will luve thee still, my dear, Till a’ the seas gang dry.” Robbie Burns

Jean Amour

The Book Shelf – The PiT’s  unusual scribble picks

January 1926: A physician in Moultrie, Georgia determined that the cause of 12-year-old Mellzo McCoy’s upset stomach was the boy’s appetite for the family Bible. By the time this diagnosis was made, Mellzo had already devoured the entire volume, except for the covers and two pages on which the family record was kept. Mellzo’s father said he knew his son sometimes ate dirt, but he had no idea about his Bible eating habit.

Barely a mouthful, but yet a tasty  nugget a noisette,  a mere driblet sampling. I thought, a tad more than a nubbin, definitely a smigeon less than morsel…a  speck more, my suspicion, a hint this snippet will be a bit of a chew Well it, just took one  smigen to lick then a quick, lap, a wee sip then gulp… Being so, naughty  I swallowed it. But all I wanted was a Nibble in the first place.. What kind of a lady, do they think I am?

The Lettuce Cigarette

Bravo Smokes                                                               were a nicotine-free cigarette β€” made out of cured lettuce leaves. They were invented by the chemist Puzant Torigian, who determined that lettuce leaves were the best tobacco substitute, after he also tested kale, grape, cabbage, kohlrabi, spinach, carrot, peanut, tomato leaves, and sugar beet tops. Bravo Smokes went on the market in 1965, but received consistently bad reviews, such as, “worse than dried buggy whip or coffee grounds in a newspaper wrapper.” Torigian’s company went out of business in 1972, but he eventually managed to find new investors and brought Bravo Smokes back to market in the late 1990s. The second-time around, the company stayed in business for over a decade.
