Poetry lesson for today. (Please read, this could be very important in your life.)

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.


---The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

What it means:

Once you have sent an email, you can’t undo it. No matter if you do a “Recall” and it’s successful. Its ghost is still out there somewhere, somebody could’ve read it/saved it, in the nanosecond between your SEND and your RECALL. Someone probably did.

What THAT means, in practical terms:

Think carefully before you hit SEND.

Some suggestions for state songs.


Now, I know every state already has a state song. But I heard a song on the radio yesterday about a particular state (I didn’t include that one here because its theme isn’t very pleasant) and I got to thinking, how about if some states were to change their state songs to something more relevant, more tuneful, or just different?

Here are my suggestions:

SC “Myrtle Beach Days”

Alabama “Sweet Home Alabama” (of course)

Kentucky “Blue Moon of Kentucky”

Delaware “What Did Delaware?”

Oklahoma “Oklahoma Hills” (OK, I know it’s the state folk song. But I think it ought to beat out Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma.”

Kansas “Dust in the Wind”

California "Surfin USA"


Louisiana "Born on the Bayou"
