I haven’t watched CNN for months – but this is mind-boggling..
"If you get pure beauty, you get about the best thing God has to give."
The quote is attributed to an anonymous artist long ago, cited by the British writer, Charles Latham in his 1905 book, The Gardens of Italy. The sentiment sums up the intention of the Italian villa—pure beauty! And Villa Gamberaia, set in the peaceful hills overlooking Florence is certainly no exception.
Interesting points.. on the ramifications of this…
“Details are emerging in the Boston Marathon bombing that suggest the case will not only be remembered as a local tragedy, but also one with broad political and economic implications,” Politico reports.
“Authorities believe the two suspects may have ties to Chechnya, news that could rock the debate on immigration reform unfolding in Congress. A police officer in Cambridge died in a shooting, two days after the Senate voted down a gun-control bill. And law enforcement has the city of Boston on lockdown, just as billions in across-the-board spending cuts are hitting local authorities.”
More of the Warren Show:
Elizabeth Warren once again reminds us why we love her, pinning down government banking regulators on why they aren’t telling the public—or even the homeowners in question—more about illegal foreclosures. In what’s becoming a familiar scene, Warren first methodically asks the regulators what they do and don’t know and what they’re actually doing to hold banks accountable or at least let foreclosure victims do so, and then she flatly lays out the implications of what they’ve just told her, making clear how weak the current oversight system is.
After watching Kevin Spacey’s show we’ve started looking at the original series from the 90′s from BBC in Britain. It has a very different tone, it’s a bit warmer and more funny – and it has a way better plot, as the Whip is going directly after the Prime Minister after a little snub of Cabinet Seats. Kevin Spacey as a power-hungry monster going after the Vice Presidency never made any sense..
So at a bit slower pace; here’s Francis Urquhart:
This Brain Research Project is simply fantastic. Curing diseases and removing fear of a decaying and dysfunctioning brain with age is a great initiative. Props to Obama.
