discovering Ben Franklin

July8

this dissertation on Benjamin Franklin is insightful.

me? I now have a renewed and insatiable appetite for learning everything I can about this man and how he came to influence.

 Enrolled in the Boston Latin School at the age of eight his father had to withdraw him after the first year. The Boston Latin School was well known for many of the famous Puritan divines, a future Franklin apparently did not want to follow. One author stated that while a youth he was reported not as pious or faithful, but as “skeptical, puckish . . . irreverent.”(1) He went to another school but soon educated himself from the age 10 and on.

its another demonstration as to how brilliant and unique our founding fathers were. imagine being eight years old and having that much situational awareness. then being able to self educate himself from the age of ten into the leader and international influencer he became.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

    each time i used to read smaller content that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading here.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Cheers

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
