CAESAR, CAIS JULIUS- b 7/12/100/02 bc. family of high office. in every relation in life, he attained apparently without effort to the highest excellence, as a citizen, politician, orator, a geneal, a companion, a man of letters, or organizing statesman. yet not over rated!
entered active life in a time of crisis. a strong national individuality, firmness, and unity of character and purpose had gradually won for rome the supremacy of latium of italy and of the world, but qualities w/ gained him an empire, he was not able to govern it. blah blah blah-in the time of Horace that rome was falling by the weight of its own greatness.
the long struggle between patricians and the plebians for political equality served rather to strengthen than loosen the cohesian of the state. -but nation outside rome could not be assimulated without severe struggle. the equality of the latins-itlains w/ romans might be won by effort of a demogogue(georgie/hitler/napoleon) but could only be assured by an entire change of Govt.(woe in 09)
failure to effect the purposes of govt. had diminished the sense of responsibility in the ruling class(!) Jugurtha had been able to discover that roman virtue was accessible by bribes(tax cuts!) the direction of provinces at once gratified and stimulated the avarice of statesmen. the riches of the world which were beginning to flow into the imperial city excited the desire for more. there existed at the same time the demoralization which accompanies the breaking up and abandonment of old principles(no shit!) of conduct, and an unsettled yearning for the adjustment of pressing difficulties-the senate which had conquered the world was unable to save itself: it could neither recover its former power, nor bring into being a new constitution. it COULD NOT EXERCISE THE ORDINARY FUNCTION OF GOVT WITHOUT ENTRUSTING TO A CITIZEN POWERS WHICH MIGHT BE TURNED AGAINST ITS OWN EXISTENCE.
if rome had perished in their crisis, she would have left but a faint impress upon the nations who owned by sovereignty. the long reign of LAW & ORDER from which we derive the chief legacies which rome had left the modern world was yet to come! the new empire dids not fall before the onslaught of an eastern despot, or break into sseperate provinces due to julius c alone.. the genius and foresight of jc left rome blah blah blah diplomacy blah blah blah taken prisoner by pirates. blah blah blah gaining reputation as an orator. 74 bc. returned to rome and elected pontiff and military tribune.
12 years JC, w/ a short absence in spain as questor was in rome, built up democratic party, in 70 bc the Sullan constitution repealed powers of tribunes restored. that of the senate diminished, control of the courts, which had been abused to sheild from punishment high-born plunderers was divided in the senate. pushed equality to the citizens. 68 lost his aunt and wife. blah blah blah.
lots of bread + circuses under him. 63 bc elected pontifex maximus. head of the state religion.
the conspiracy of catolinenus perhaps been exaggerated by the vanity of cicero; but it threatened serious danger to the state, and it showed the impotence of the roman government at the time. catiline, trying to get best spot for him and his(georgie?). EB poo pooing this. but WE KNOW THIS IS BAD. dec 5,63 he spoke against the execution of the conspirators. JC saw it was bad to break laws to enforce laws. cicero, wanted revenge.
62 JC praetor.
61 at 40 yrs, assumed propraetor and military command and gaining reputation as a great general.
compassion and support of the troops! added to romes riches and his own. canddate for consuleship the next year and serve by proxy, but cato and the senate would not allow it due to law. JC gave up army + became consul. formed alliace w/pompeius and crassus. 1st triumverate. P + C had been enemies and reconciled by JC.
blah blah blahCicero blah blah blahnew wife calpurnia, daughter of Piso.
time of new laws. in 8 years, a free + chivalrons(sp?) people were reduced to absolute obedience new countries absorbed. in 58 2 victories-defeat of antan + helvetin who were leaving switzeland to settle on the atlantic coast + JC pushed them back + germans under Ariovistus + pushed them over the rhine + now the rhine a border, but the belgie still unsubdued. 57 JC attacked the B + scattered them. the nervii made a stand + JC forced to battle like a common soldier, but defeated them aswell and submission of the veneti and coastal cantons. in 56 the veneti rebelled + whole coast joined insurection. JC huried from Italy + disabled them. only the moroni + menapii free of romeDau(?) now contained + JC went after germany. took out the Usipetes and tenchter. built bridge over the rhine and spent 18 days on the other side. same yr 55 his1st expedition to britain, curious + hoping to end this escape for for the celics. B made brave resistance + JC compelled to retreat, rustrated, made extra preperation to attack in 54. was able to get further + crossed the thames,impossed a tribute but unable to subdue it. the gauls revolted in next 2 years. inflamed by the death of daminorix+ inspired by germans and Bs. in 53-52 under princeVercingetorix(?) blah blah blah the final struggle wa over alesia. vercingetorix, took refuge here w/ 90,000 infantry and 25,000 horse. JC had joined his forces w/ labienes + invested the hill on all sides. the masses of the gallic landsturn(?)-oy my hand writing sucks- crowded from all quarters to release their champion. JC became besieged while sieging his genius saved him the provisions of alesia exhausted, JC repulsed the double attack on his lines and V, disdaining to flee, delivered himself into JC's power.
51 bc finally pacifies Gaul. while inGaul, the triumverate in rome was desolving, the 3 members met in Lucca in 50 bc +arranged JCs command in gaul to be 5 more yrs. P +C be elected conuls for 55 bc + and o end of their office, C should have syria + P the 2 spains. sept 54 JCs daughter Julia and Ps wife did. in 53bc crassus slain in Parthia. in 52, P asserting his independence, moving towards cato + prosenate. JC control of army extended to 49. consul in 48. blah blah blah
crossed the rubicon in jan 49. and assinated on ides of march 44. those 5 years, he crushed armies in europe + laid the foundation for imperial power that followed him . barely 15 months in rome, blah blah cleopatra blah blah enlarged the senate. gave all classes representation, anti cronyism. built up libraries. ides of march blah blah blah



i actually sent this to my cousin from cue overload, but it has been deleted. and i love the baby puffer. major memory for me and so i love puffer fishes. my grandma F was a excellent decorator and when i was young she had silver/gold/black/white cool wallpaper in the batheroom. it sort of was like metalic granitish looking. and a freeze dried puffer fish hung from the ceiling above the bathtub. and so, i have a plastic disney puffer fish toy. and when i encounter them, i am reminded of a happier time before george. i long for the post A.G. era.

RANDOM POLITICS POST-mini rant. rant?

teh(do i have to spell it that way now?) gnews media are a flutter that iowa voted for a BLACK man. obama is 1/2 black. you'd think they had voted for SHAFT the way the gnews talk. obama does NOT look like scary mandingo.
i am not talking about that 'is he black enough BS, but come on, he isn't jesse jackson, he isn't reggie jackson. tho, he might be darker than michael jackson at this point.
obama may want to try O'Bama in the MA primary tho.



another plane pic. flew from NJ, and i am assuming flew along the northern coast. and over nova scotia and canada. i am wondering if i was seeing the great lakes from above. lots of big water.

starting a new benedicte trip. this oe to denmark in 03. april 03. right after georgie's grand misstep into messapotmia.
i got up insanely early(5amish) to fly to NYC. landed at la guardia and my uncle hired me a car to take me to JFK cause he didn't have time to see me. had a few hours wait. as i walked into JFK, my barefeet were complimented. i didn't have much to eat, but nibbles and a soft pretzel.



by the way, my bare feet don't smell. shoes make them stink.



checker DOG. pepper. the golden retriever/dauchsund mutt who lived next door. he was my favorite of their 3. put to sleep. he was getting quite old. and he was a big short boy. loved it when he would get a buzz cut. loved snow.
saw him smiling one day and said. THAT'S IT! that's the face!

i was polled today. a WI poll about judge elections, tho the young poll chicky did mention it a few times. course i am all for public financing judges. SINCE THE LAST REPUBLIKKKAN BITCH WHO BOUGHT HER SEAT ON THE SC HAD ETHICS PROBLEMS BEFORE THE FUCKING ELECTION. but had more commercials to sway the idjits here.
the poll writing sucked tho. and the chicky had a hard time asking them. 1/2 the time i was confused.
but, i seemed to impress her with my knowledge. but i was the 1st one to mention NPR, when i questioned whether it was news radio. cause it ain't limbaugh and shit.
she said i sounded younger too. maybe it's that blogging i does. hmm. if 40 is old, how old was she?oh crap. i am old! i'm fucking vintage!



a herd of hotdogs.



mainly for elspeth. and whoever. all prints are now $7. this includes shipping. unless overseas. but not much more. AS IF I HAVE OVERSEAS. do i? anyways. i guess easy is to find me on ebay. where i don't sell art yet. but just use advanced search and look for pansypoo. YES, my ebay name too! i snatched it up before ebay was EBAY. and contact me. then i might send you to my art pickle page. but everything will eventually be posted here.



been throwing these in the blog file and gotta start putting them on. pansypoo really reazlly likes old butter stamps/molds. eventually she will post hers, but she saves the best that ebay sells and she can't afford.


i may not be able to do the password to the stupid apple mail as i don't think i paid to join THAT club. NO BIGGIE, but i accidently erased the stores messaged i had at ebay and it had a retrieval system, but i had to DOWNLOAD a FUCKING microsoft office program and now my desktop font is FUCKED UP and i can't find that program to DELETE IT!

from astronomy pic of the day. i saw similar clouds once and yes, i got pics. just have to find them. way pre digital.


OH NOES. tom lantos is retiring. ahh, memories of them HUD hearing and tom saying influence peddling in is euro accent. tho he was too pro Gulf war and the terror war.



auntie must have been going thru a box. she found some vintage unused cards. auntie is a BIG hallmark/greeting card slave. she loves buying cards. she gave me a blank card and wrote in a hallmarking couplet! gotta ask if she cribbed it, or came up with it herself. should get a job with hallmark.
grandma saved every damn card she ever got. boxes and boxes and boxes of em.

of course, i am more of a shoebox™ kinda person.

54? more stupid weeks of Bush to go
54? more #$@%^ stupid weeks of Bush to go
and nah nah nah nah hey hey, good BYE loser
54? more weeks of Bush to go




oh, by the way, on BBC news show on my radio, economics reporter said the words mini STAGFLATION and depression. not recession. DEPRESSION!
wow, boy that bush boom.



well, we got a lot of perfect snowman snow. and i passed this on the way to west bend VERY BIG snowman with a FEZ! ok, i know it's a pail, but i am saying it's a fez and i am gonna send it to ataturk.




now, i understand, i have on a FUZZY PINK SOCK, but ever since Mutts comic strip has that cat going nuts over a FUZZY PINK SOCK, all i can think of is this. beware FUZZY PINK SOCKS! hardwood floors and FUZZY PINK SOCKS do not go together. i was in too much pain to take my camera to get a pic without the sock. it was a clean impalement. went in right under my big toe, thru the pad, and out into the arch, so i had about 1 1/2 inch of splinter on the other end. i tried pulling it out. took about 2 hours to get to emergency room, where they had tools to pull it out, and then they flushed the wound. funny seeing it come out the exit. held that hole shut for better cleaning. band aids a script for vicadin. since brett favre's addiction was big news then, i just said no. and, it didn't really bother me.
NOW, the next year, i went to denmark, and since i had sent a pic to benedicte, the kids want to see the scar, but there wasn't much. just a little bump at the exit and a little squished y at the entrance. and 9 years later, there is no scar at all. all i have it the photo, the other pink sock, and the splinter in a biohazard bag on my wall.
SO, socks are far more dangerous than barefeet. especially if they are FUZZY PINK ONES!

Monday, December 31, 2007



well, at THAT TIME the day we were leaving was the sunday after daylight savings, so i got up early enough to get pictures of the frost and the perfect light.

oh, i forgot to mention that one day we had this freaky iowa southern oscillation weather. strong southern wind and got up to high 70's. very strange. and John Chaffee died. told eivind, e were sitting in their addition. me reading or knitting andf he listening to jazz. and that golfer who died in his oxygenless plane. and the nice abandoned kitty i gave my leftover steak to. stoopid country people, and going to their local antique store called the eggcrate, and and and i got a triangular base heater.....

and i took a pic of benedicte with jeanette and eivind. i always sent them xmas cards. always adding political thoughts.
he and jeanette were married for 59 years. i really liked eivind. he was salt of this earth.

oh, i don't have a good picture, but we took the quick way home on the I. passed a 18 wheeler with tweety-bird strapped to the front grill. drove thru dubuque. very pretty.





well, one day, we went to Walnut, IA, antigue capital of the world i think they called themselves. lots of little victorian houses and lots and lots of antique shops. i didn't buy anything. tho i do think i got a cheap pair of salt and pepper shakers. visited a polish immigrant woman who benedicte could speak polish with. or was she danish? she was a school teacher and we met her in the close to walnut town she worked.ahh, flashbacks to my childhood going to an early 1900's school house in the outer core of milwaukee, tho when i went, the huge windows were all glass. waz up with illminating 75% of the windows??? tho we had 50's era desks. ahh all that woodwork.
then we took the lady benedicte 'collected' into her very large circle of friends, and drove to Omaha to meet her husband. and we went to the fancy smantsy hotel restaurant for dinner. jeez, nobody told me, i was wearing a blaze orange polar tec top and jeans. but it was halloween, so i was a pumpkin! the sports bar steak was better.
and then we went to the omaha symphony. it was a special beatles thing. had fake beatles for a third and the symphony basically just sat, except for the triangle WHOO HOO! triangle gets to play!!! and 3 who clapped at specific spots.
let's just say, it wasn't my cup o tea.
i have been to the milwaukee symphony. omaha's was maybe a 1/3 of 'ours'. but they were good. i suppose they need help to bring people in. sad.

ANYWAYS. why benedicte was there was to work with the children and they set up a 'program' singing/dancing danish stuff. they built a mockup of ebeltoft, denmark.about 3 1/2 feet high. i thought i scanned that. so i t6ook pictures for benedicte at the program at the museum. i did like this pic of a participant who also watched some of it when he was done.



fat ass pansy. an earl one. i like it, but not a good seller. no idea why not. is it the fuschia?

Sunday, December 30, 2007



near the end of the week we had 'tea' at a mother and daughter's farm. a rarer 3rd generation danish speaker. ooh, fish paste in a tube! YUM.
NOT!!1! HELL NO! i ain't eating that.
and as you can see it was late october and while we were there, a thunderstorm started, so i go out hoping for pictures of lightning, but settled for barns. which are listed with brass plaques.



one day after benedicte was done at the museum, we visited a very old woman who was very elderly and had been recognized by the government(can't think of what ya call it) for tatting, or was it lace making, but that's tatting. anyways. smithsonian type stuff. named majeska. could speak danish, so she and benedicte could talk in danish. a lot of the older people in those towns spoke danish. after a while majeska'a daughter/son or grandkid stopped by with their adopted chinese daughter named RUBY. she was very pretty, and i think she was 1/2 caucasian.

and when we left, this is one of my favorite sunsets. and i photoshoped it, but the images are trapped on ZIP DRIVES.



cherch is start. open ur himnells.
