The Good Earth

Three cheers to Pearl S. Buck! We're having a nasty little heatwave in Detroit and my circuits are fried today. Tomorrow may be better.

On days like these, I'm with the Sex Pistols: I don't wanna holiday in the SUN!

Today's Rune: Movement.

Birthdays: Abner Doubleday, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Pearl Sydenstricker Buck, Willy Messerschmitt, Maria Nikolaevna Romanova, Babe Zaharias, Laurie Lee, Violette Szabo, Eleanor Parker, Mick Jones.

I'm beating the heat in my pool; had to install a new liner, but it was well worth it!

Years ago I sent money to the Pearl Buck Foundation and helped out a boy named Johny Han. Pearl Buck was quite a woman. There is a museum near Doylestown in Pa. I would like to visit sometime.

Erik, I read in periodicals on the finding of the manuscripts. How jewel!
Here we like sun, we go for the beach! I live in front! The winter is 28graus and falls here in maximum 17.
Erik, when to arrive in blogue, gives to stop before finishing the shipment, that does not fall! If not to obtain, says me!
Beijus, Luma
