Greetings

Welcome to the blog, 'zine, and bookstore of Priscilla King. We encourage comments, contact, and support. If the comments section isn't working, or the "contact" tab isn't showing, please feel free to e-mail salolianigodagewi@yahoo.com (our Message Squirrel's address, which routes messages to Priscilla King, Grandma Bonnie Peters, Gena Greene, and others). And please e-mail us if you'd like to buy anything you've seen here.

Want to get paid for chatting with me (and lots of other people) at Chatabout? http://chatabout.com/referral/u/63718

At Tsu? https://www.tsu.co/PriscillaKing

We are currently looking for (TWO) paid guest posts. Guest posts should be unique, informative, and well referenced. They may reflect your political and/or religious views but should not be primarily or specifically about politics. They should tell me something I didn't know, about something I find interesting but don't write about. If in verse, they should have some recognizable form, not necessarily a traditional form. Whether in verse or prose, they should have at least three published nonfiction references, at least one of which should be a printed book. Guest posts will be reviewed by at least two separate people, the writer will accept an offer for the post with or without changes, and $5 will be transferred to the writer's Paypal account before a guest post appears here. Guest posts should also be e-mailed to Saloli at the address above.

As discussed below, due to recent world events our discussions of U.S. political issues have moved to a U.S.-only web site called Freedom Connector. Many writers, elected officials, and others active in U.S. politics have pages at this site. U.S. readers should find it easier to comment and socialize at FC than it's been here.

International readers are still welcome to read and comment about books, nature, history, recipes, handcrafts, and miscellaneous topics here.



Unlike some other web'zines, this one has not been kickstarted with a big grant or loan. We are paying as we grow. So, in order to buy guest posts, or even keep this site alive, we need reader support. If the Google "Support" button above or the Paypal "Donate" button below isn't working, you may e-mail Saloli to buy any book you've seen reviewed here (total cost is usually US$10), buy an advertorial article or picture ($50-100 if I write it, less if you do), or buy any handmade item you've seen photographed here (they start at a total cost of US$10).

Please support this blog! If you like what you're reading, Google recommends $5, the average cost of a printed magazine:

Book Review: Call Me Bandicoot

Book Review: Call Me Bandicoot
        
Author: William Pène du Bois
        
Date: 1970
        
Publisher: Harper & Row
        
ISBN: none, but click here to see the cover picture on Amazon
        
Length: 63 pages
        
Illustrations: color paintings by the author
        
Quote: “Ermine Bandicoot...looks ratlike, as his name suggests.”
        
Actually, as painted, he looks like one of the masses of Beatle fans found in high schools at the time, and his name turns out to suggest that he belongs to one of New York’s old Dutch families, but why quibble? This is another funny story about inventions that might or might not have worked in real life, as designed by William Pène du Bois, as seen in Squirrel Hotel and Peter Graves...only there’s more to it.
        
When I consider the funny story in its historical context, I confess, Gentle Reader, I am puzzled. Toward the end of his distinguished career, William Pène du Bois set out to write a short book, accessible to children but amusing to adults, about each of the seven deadly sins. (He died without having figured out a way to write a kid-friendly story about Lust, though one might have thought that the 1980s panic about sexual predators would have simplified that problem.) There was no question that Lazy Tommy Pumpkinhead was a caricature of Sloth. Porko von Popbutton and Pretty Pretty Peggy Moffitt were vaguely linked to historical events, but were clearly about Gluttony and Pride (well, vanity). Call Me Bandicoot is about Avarice, but it’s not clear what’s being held up as the bad example, or who learns what, or what the author wanted readers to learn from this story.
        
There are two forms of Avarice in Call Me Bandicoot. Which one you consider worse probably depends on which side of the famous “generation gap” you were standing on in 1970. Teenaged Ermine Bandicoot seems to be homeless; he rides around on the ferry, demanding snack-bar food from the audiences to whom he tells elaborate stories, presumably on the way to and from school. When the narrator realizes that a story he’s taken for fact was probably fiction, he takes an unfavorable view of young Bandicoot...until he sees old Hermann Vandenkroot and decides, “Ermine Bandicoot was as great as he had said he was.”
        
So, which of these stubborn men is “the stingiest, money-grubbingest cat that ever was,” and what’s the moral? While making their judgments, readers will be entertained by Bandicoot’s preposterous stories.

This book is recommended to anyone who likes picture books that are either funny or serious. It rates high on both qualities.

If you buy it here, the price is $5 for the book + $5 for shipping, and anything else that fits into the same package comes under the same $5 shipping charge. If you can get a better deal elsewhere...this author no longer needs a dollar, and I've sold the copy I had on display when I wrote this review.

Book Review: Basketry of the Appalachian Mountains

Title: Basketry of the Appalachian Mountains
        
Author: Sue H. Stephenson
        
Date: 1977
        
Publisher: Van Nostrand Reinhold / Litton
        
ISBN: 0-442-27972-8
        
Length: 112 pages
        
Illustrations: photographs (by Aubrey Wiley) and diagrams
        
Quote: “It takes fifty hours to make a twin-bottomed egg basket. The weaving is extraordinarily simple, but the shaping and molding of the oak requires hand skill of a high order.”
        
The twin-bottomed egg basket is the type shown on the front cover of this book, against a lovely mountain landscape. Only to an informed eye does it look worth fifty hours of skilled work. Even in the Appalachian Mountains, only a few people feel called to keep the old European and Native American basket-weaving skills alive. Sue Stephenson is one of those people.
        
Serious basket weavers can tell by looking whether a basket is part of a European or American tradition. I can’t, but I’ll take Stephenson’s word that the baskets she’s collected and made are European styles.
        
This book contains much of the information readers will need to make their own baskets. Beginners will find it easy to work with honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica), an invasive weed that needs lots of cutting back, or phragmite reeds, or spent raspberry canes. (The brambles on which raspberries and similar fruits grow have a three-year life cycle: one year to sprout, one year to bear fruit, one year to get in the way of berry pickers.) Miniature baskets can even be made with twigs and grass or string. The full-sized, challenging patterns in this book can be scaled down to twig-and-straw proportions, at which size they make cute dollhouse or Christmas tree decorations.
        
If you want to work your way up to making full-sized baskets with willow or oak splints, this book also provides information on how to convert solid wood into material that can be woven. A good oak basket, Stephenson tells us, should last thirty years. Willow baskets are vulnerable to mildew; paint and varnish aren’t traditional but will probably extend the working life of a willow basket.
        
Along with information about the baskets, and patterns for several baskets, this book contains some information about the makers of the baskets Stephenson studied. This information is valuable when not overgeneralized.
        
For example, Stephenson usefully specifies that her own Scottish family, in West Virginia, condoned marriages between first cousins, a risky practice often blamed for what are more often the results of brain drain in small towns. When jobs are scarce in small towns, talented young people tend to seek jobs in cities, and people who qualify for disability pensions stay in the small towns, a high incidence of brain damage will always be observed in the active generation. Meanwhile, each of the ancestral cultures that influenced the various Appalachian Mountain communities seems to have had a different rule about relationships among cousins; when Virginia banned marriages between people more closely related than “third cousins once removed,” the legislature was compromising between English custom, which allowed marriages between first cousins, and Irish custom, which banned marriages between fourth and fifth cousins. So today it’s offensive to suggest that cousins ever married each other in some towns, while in other towns, not far away, the fact is that they did.
        
Nobody I know has any grievance against the one small town that is properly known as Appalachia, but residents of other towns have every right to object to the way outsiders (a) cling to outdated stereotypes of Appalachia, and (b) add insult to injury by confusing our towns with Appalachia. And one of the best features of Basketry of the Appalachian Mountains is that its narrative is precise and specific, with little confusion about “Appalachia” and lots of details about this basket made by this person.

As an example of praiseworthy precision, this book is recommended to all students of handcrafts and folkways.

A hardcover edition of Basketry of the Appalachian Mountains exists, and is quite expensive. Paperback editions are cheap, so unless you insist on the hardcover edition you may purchase the paperback for $5 + $5 shipping. As always, anything else you see on this site that will fit into the same package can be shipped for the same $5. 

Will Sue Honaker Stephenson get a dollar out of this $10? I honestly can't say. I'm not finding any personal information about her online, and don't know whether she's still alive or not. But if you buy this book from me, I'll make efforts to find her, and, if living, she can claim a dollar from me or send it to a charity of her choice.

Morgan Griffith on Filibusters

From U.S. Representative Morgan Griffith:

"More on Ending the Modern Filibuster Rule

On many occasions, I have taken issue with the modern interpretation of the Senate filibuster rule.  When I last wrote on this topic in a newsletter, it was just before this year’s elections.  Control of the Senate had not yet been determined.

As I have said previously, this is not a partisan issue.  On running the government efficiently, it might not matter which party wins the majority if the Senate rules are not changed.

Whether or not you agree with Republican policies, come January 6, the Republican party will be in control of both the House and the Senate.  I strongly believe that in November, the American people voted for change.

I also strongly believe that the modern filibuster – which requires a super majority in order to make a decision on any issue of significance – violates the spirit of the Founding Fathers’ intent to have a majority rule Republic based on Democratic principles.  They never intended for a significant portion of the Senate’s business to be blocked by a minority.

The historical rule – as depicted in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington when Jimmy Stewart holds the floor with an impassioned filibuster that slowly changes the minds of his fellow senators – is a good process.  But starting in the 1970’s, a senator can filibuster by merely making a request.  This is generally called a “hold.”  Adding insult to injury, the senator’s identity doesn’t even have to be made public.

I had been hopeful that a Senate Republican majority might see that this modern filibuster rule is a threat to the long-term stability of the Republic, and revert to the historical rule.  Instead, unfortunately, some in the Senate seem unwilling to return to the historical filibuster rule, and are already making apologies.  By apologies, I mean they are telling us in the House and their constituents that they can’t get everything done the voters want because they still don’t have 60 votes.  But as I quipped to one new Senator-elect recently, “It’s only a 60 vote requirement because you allow it to be that way in the rules.”  Clearly it would break with a 40-year tradition, but the Founding Fathers believed in majority rule. 

There are many problems in Washington, and there are some rules in the House which need to be tweaked.  Further, it would be helpful if the House actually followed its rules.  But I believe that the modern filibuster rule is one of the biggest procedural problems in Washington, D.C.

The American people are deserving of a government that works.  I have no problem with a Senator taking to the floor for a traditional filibuster should they object to a bill under consideration.  Nor do I take issue with the fact that the filibuster reform I am supporting would likely result in bills coming to the House from the Senate that may be difficult votes for me and my colleagues.  This would be especially true should the Democrats regain control of the Senate.

But by reverting to the historical rule, I believe more bills will be voted on, more compromises will be reached, and more progress can be made when it comes to growing jobs and our economy, fixing our health care system, securing our energy future, and more. 

This is how the process is designed to work.  It is essential to begin building the consensus and compromise.  This is what our country expects from its elected leaders.

After reading my November 3, 2014 message calling for the end of the modern filibuster rule, several people said something to the effect of, “Oh, yes, of course Griffith wants to change this rule now that the Republican party gains control of the Senate,” or, “I don’t remember Griffith calling for this change before, when the Republicans used this rule to block the President’s agenda.”  To these folks, I would respectfully note that I wrote regarding my thoughts about the need for filibuster reform as early as November 16, 2012 – soon after the 2012 elections, in which President Obama won reelection and the Senate was firmly in Democrat hands with a combined total (53 Democrats and two Independents who caucused with the Democrats) of 55 seats. 

As always, if you have questions, concerns, or comments, feel free to contact my office. You can call my Abingdon office at 276-525-1405 or my Christiansburg office at 540-381-5671. To reach my office via email, please visit my website at www.morgangriffith.house.gov. "

Griffith to McAuliffe: "Do Not Carry On the War on Coal"

From U.S. Representative Morgan Griffith:

"​Tuesday, December 16, 2014 - Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding reports that Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) will soon be proposing to limit State tax credits and deductions that assist coal producers with coalfield jobs and electricity generation:

“Coal-producing regions such as the Ninth District of Virginia are already reeling from job losses resulting from federal regulations and the Obama Administration’s ongoing war on coal.  Sadly, now it seems our State Executive will soon be declaring his own war on coal as well.”

“Governor McAuliffe claims to want jobs, economic growth, and to ‘put Virginia first.’  But one may question the motive behind his reported policies.”

“As I have said repeatedly, the war on coal, while targeting the coal industry, affects us all.  Those working in the coalfields suffer as a result of these policies, but also harmed are the industries that rely on coal mines.  When coal jobs are cut, the people who supply materials to the coal mines, those operating the trains carrying the coal, and the people working in the ports that ship the coal are all impacted.  And when the work stops below the ground in coal-producing communities, life above ground is impacted as well, hurting the livelihoods of many in the surrounding communities.”

“Under the Constitution of Virginia, the State has an obligation to make sure educational opportunities are equal throughout the State.  The continued war on coal makes it even harder on coal-producing localities to fund K-12 education.  To make up for the dollars these localities are losing by virtue of the actions of the Obama Administration in Washington and now his Administration in Richmond, Governor McAuliffe should also be increasing the amount of money from the State Treasury going to these communities.  Absent significant new expenditures for education in coal-producing parts of Southwest Virginia, I fear the Governor’s proposals are short-sighted.”

“I have one message for those waging the war on coal: end the war on coal so that the people in coal-producing regions of Southwest Virginia can better support their own local governments, schools, and their own families.”"

Robert Hurt on Transparency

From U.S. Representative Robert Hurt:

"Dear Friend,
Last Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a government spending omnibus to establish the budget for the 2015 fiscal year. Unfortunately, Congress failed, once again, to follow an open and transparent legislative process and, instead, waited until the last minute to cobble together a massive 1600-page $1.1 trillion spending omnibus for the U.S. government – with only 48 hours given for consideration.
The United States Constitution places tremendous responsibility for spending taxpayer dollars with the U.S. Congress. Our laws and our legislative rules clearly set forth a process by which the Congress considers legislative proposals in a deliberate and thoughtful manner. In this process, legislative proposals are presented, debated, amended, and ultimately passed, or not. When this process is followed in an open and transparent manner, the Congress is not only properly fulfilling its constitutional obligation, but it is also much more likely to produce a legislative product that best reflects the will of the people whom we represent.
At a time when so many Fifth District Virginians are gravely concerned about our staggering $18 trillion debt and about the President’s repeated unconstitutional use of executive authority to spend taxpayer dollars in a manner inconsistent with the law, it is more important than ever that we have a full and robust debate on these issues. Sadly, when Congress fails to live up to these constitutional obligations, many of our constituents conclude that Washington simply does not care about the legacy we leave for our children and grandchildren – indeed a country poorer in every way. For these reasons, I was unable to support the government spending omnibus.
With the New Year comes a new Congress and new opportunities to work together on behalf of the people we represent. It is my sincere hope that the new 114th Congress will be committed to considering legislation in an open and transparent manner consistent with our obligations to the Constitution and to our constituents.
I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House and our colleagues in the Senate to promote pro-growth policies, to reduce our debt, and to ensure that we leave our children and grandchildren with a better future.
If you need any additional information or if we may be of assistance to you, please visit my website at hurt.house.gov or call my Washington office: (202) 225-4711, Charlottesville office: (434) 973-9631, Danville office: (434) 791-2596, or Farmville office: (434) 395-0120.
Robert visited with Ken Carlson, a member of the Danville Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol and former Squadron Commander, before they attended Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony in honor of the Civil Air Patrol.
Sincerely,
Robert Hurt"

Book Review: Castle Craneycrow

Title: Castle Craneycrow
        
Author: George Barr McCutcheon
        
Date: 1902
        
Publisher: Herbert S. Stone & Company
        
ISBN: none
        
Length: 391 pages
        
Quote: “It was characteristic of Mr. Philip Quentin that he first lectured his servant on the superiority of mind over matter and then took him cheerfully by the throat and threw him into a far corner of the room. As the servant was not more than half the size of the master, his opposition was merely vocal...”
        
Right...it’s awful. Consistently, resoundingly dreadful. During McCutcheon’s lifetime, the specific kind of kitschiness that defines his fiction was named, in McCutcheon’s honor (??), “Graustarkian.” The first of his bestsellers was called Graustark, which was also the name of the fictional European kingdom where the stories are set, and this first edition of Castle Craneycrow contains advertisements for Graustark
        
The story of how young Quentin found a servant who would put up with his abuse, and then proceeds to woo and win a bride in a similar style, is so preposterous as to be funny. Sadly, though, no internal evidence suggests that McCutcheon realized how bad his fiction was.

Castle Craneycrow is recommended to those who want to read a full-length novel that would have won a Bulwer-Lytton Bad Fiction Award if it had been written in the 1980s. (Although the quote above is written as two sentences, don’t you agree that as an opener it deserved a Bulwer-Lytton Award?) It’s also recommended to collectors of old books. The copy I had when I wrote the first draft of this review really was a first edition from 1902, wonderfully well preserved, marked only with the signature and private library “catalogue” information of its original owner.

Though old, Castle Craneycrow was a bestseller in its day and is still easy to find online. You can buy it from me for the usual $5 + $5 shipping, but since McCutcheon no longer needs a dollar you're welcome to shop around for this book and buy a living writer's comic novel from me.

Knitted Plaid Jacket

Here's Gena Greene's take on a design from a vintage issue of Elle Knits:



The colors are pretty similar in real life to the way they look at the center of the picture, on this computer screen: jade green, blue, and yellow.

Material: acrylic

Care: machine wash and dry

Size: 34-36", 5'6"-5'9"

Price: $30 + $5 shipping

Book Review: Zink

A Fair Trade Book

Title: Zink
        
Author: Cherie Bennett
        
Date: 1999
        
Publisher: Dell / Random House
        
ISBN: 0-440-22810-7
        
Length: 226 pages plus a supplemental section
        
Illustrations: readers’ drawings in supplemental section
        
Quote: “She’d fainted in front of the entire sixth grade.”
        
The fictional story of Becky Zaslow, whose wild imagination helps her cope with the ups and downs of sixth grade even when she has cancer, is based on the true story of Kelly Weil (1982-1993). In real life Kelly Weil wrote only one page about a fantastic zebra named Zink with polka dots instead of stripes. Cherie Bennett expanded the legend of Zink into a play, and then into this novel, while working with a foundation created in memory of Kelly Weil.    
        
Although Becky’s story is sad, it’s interwoven with the wild and wacky adventures of Zink and with Becky’s relationship with her brother Lee, so there’s room for surprise, suspense, and happy endings in Zink too.

The supplemental section contains basic information about juvenile cancer, with contact information for legitimate organizations that send out literature on the topic, and might be a good starting point for students researching this topic. 

Although it's widely available, if you buy Zink from me for $5 + $5 shipping, (a) Cherie Bennett or a charity of her choice gets $1, and (b) you can add anything else purchased at this site that will fit into one package for the same $5.

Aquamarine Shawl


This is a simple triangular shawl, without fringe, knitted in a fluffy, slightly sparkly, baby-boucle yarn in pale aquamarine with a strand of glossy white. It's meant to be light, soft, and dressy rather than blanket-thick...definitely not snowproof.

Size: One size fits adults; can be stretched, can't be shrunk.

Material: Acrylic

Care: Machine wash and dry

Cost: $20 for the shawl + $5 for shipping

Book Review: A Handful of Horrid Henry

A Fair Trade Book

Title: A Handful of Horrid Henry
        
Author: Francesca Simon

Author's web page: http://www.francescasimon.com/about/
        
Date: 2000
        
Publisher: Orion
        
ISBN: 1-85881-847-8
        
Length: 288 pages
        
Illustrations: cartoons, many full-page, by Tony Ross
        
Quote: “Henry threw food, Henry snatched, Henry pushed and shoved and pinched. Even his teddy avoided him when possible.”
        
Henry is such an annoying child that even when he offers to help adults routinely tell him, “Don’t be horrid, Henry,” on the assumption that he “will just make a mess.” His school friends, if one can call them friends, have names like Perfect Peter, Moody Margaret, and Pimply Paul. He’s not as believable as Ramona the Pest, but he’s funny in the same general way, and like Ramona he sometimes comes out ahead.
        
The “Handful” of Henry stories is an omnibus reprint of three previous picture books. Written by a Californian in London, these books apparently went through several reprints in Britain before being brought together under one cover. There are sequels...it's actually possible to buy eighteen picture books bound as a set of six full-sized books. (Click here.)

Most likely to amuse children between ages four and eight, A Handful of Horrid Henry is written on a second or third grade reading level, with large clear type and lots of pictures.

This series, or part of it, can also be read bilingually: click here to see which volumes are currently available in Spanish. (In Spanish the kid characters' names rhyme...Pablo Diablo and so on.) 

A Handful of Horrid Henry has been a bestseller, "everywhere but in the U.S." the Guardian once claimed, so if you buy it here you pay $5 for the book + $5 for shipping, and we mail Francesca Simon $1. If you buy A Handful of Horrid Henry, Pablo Diablo, Pablo Diablo y el Club Secreto, and Pablo Diablo y el Dinero here, all at once so we can ship them in one package, you pay $5 for the book that's widely available in the U.S., $10 for each of the three that are more expensive, and $5 for shipping (that's $40 altogether), and we mail Francesca Simon $5.50, or 10% of the $55 you would have paid for those four items shipped separately.

The Rest of the Amazon Wish List

This is a test. I'm testing whether the images of book covers will actually link to the Amazon pages where you can decide whether you want these books for Christmas too. A few of them are books I used to own, have lost, and miss. More of them are books I've not read yet but wish I had, so I can't tell you anything more about them than Amazon will...

Looks as if the images aren't showing up but the links are, but those boxes where the images should be are working as links. Wotthe...? Maybe on some people's computers the images will show up and look pretty.

Anyway, if any fans out there would like to send me any of these books as Christmas presents (or as payment for advertorials, links, items of similar value advertised here, etc.), feel free to send copies that you may already own and not have offered for sale on Amazon.
