The Descent of Man

The Descent of Man was a compilation of scientific evidence used in conjunction with Darwin's theory of evolution.


I'm currently studying ancient civilizations. (Mesopotamia, Northeast Africa, India and China)


Iv'e been watching the policy of "preemptive strike" employed by the Smirking Chimp and now being considered by Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and of course - always being employed by Israel over the Palenstinians, and it's disastrous effect it is having on the world.


I've been listening to the Dirty Dozen Brass Band lately, and one of the tunes on The New Orleans Album has piqued my interest for some time: The Monkey.


The Monkey

The monkey speaks his mind.

Now, three monkeys sat in a coconut tree,
discussing things as they are said to be.
Said one to other now listen, you two
“There’s a certain rumour that just can’t be true!
That man descended from our noble race
Why, the very idea is a big disgrace, yea”
Now, no monkey ever deserted his wife,

starved her baby and ruined her life!

Yeaaaa, the monkey speaks his mind.

And you’ve never known a mother monk,
to leave her babies with others to bunk,
and passed them on from one to another
‘Til they scarcely knew which was their mother

Yea, the monkey speak his mind

And another thing you will never see:
a monkey build a fence around a coconut tree!
And let all the coconuts go to waste,

forbidding other monkeys to come and taste
Why, if I put a fence around this tree,
starvation would force you to steal from me!

Yeaaaaa, the monkey speaks his mind.

Here’s another thing a monkey won’t do:
go out on a night and get all in a stew,
or use a gun or a club or a knife,
And take another monkey’s life!

Yes, man descended, the worthless bum,
but, brothers, from us he did not come!

Yeaaaa, the monkey speaks his mind.
Yeaaaa, now the monkey speaks his mind.

Written by Dave Bartholomew and Pearl King.

Happy Monday. ,

Garden Update

This is my attempt at an 'artsy' garden and harvest photograph. That old Caddy in my neighbor's yard helps I guess. Notice the tomatoes...hee hee. I've gotten eight so far and the Fourth of July is tomorrow. Most people 'round these parts don't get ripe tomatos until the end of the first week of July. It's no big deal either way.
The whole shabang.
A tomato close up. It's tomato porn.
Snap beans in between tomatos and zucchini. The zucchini started to acquire this gray mold that we get here so I chopped half of those plants down and tossed them into the compost pile.
This is why I grow zucchini. It's the first week of July, there are about twenty or so in the bottom of my fridge and I've been eating two a day now for about a couple of weeks. I picked some snap beans yesterday but only a handful. Once they start to roll I will probably get rid of all the zucchini plants and maybe throw a more few seeds in the ground for that late season bumper crop. We'll see what happens.

With the world about to come to an end due to the war mongering chimp and Israel about to commit an Adolph Hilter on the Palestinians, this garden is my little oasis. I hope you and yours can find a place of peace, and remember that there are many Iraqi and Palestinian children that have no hope and nowhere to go. ,
