To celebrate more than a quarter-century in Charlotte, Carpe Diem now offers a nostalgic section on its menu, a nod to customers who have been dining here since the beginning. “Old School Carpe” brings back customer favorites from the restaurant’s early days, back when the space was on Tryon Street near what is now the Mint Museum. Warford says to expect often-requested dishes such as the pistachio-crusted trout, champagne chicken, and Peking pancakes. Longtime customers can reminisce, while new customers have the chance to realize just how ahead of its time this restaurant has been.
North Korea was created to be the tipping point for WWIII according to http:// . I have been reading his World Affairs Briefing he publishes every Friday for about 5 years. If you visit https:// you can subscribe but also on that page on the top right is an interesting article “Strategic Threats of This Decade.” His book “Strategic Relocation” which I have gifted many times is a really good read on what states provide the most survivable locations (he points out proximity to military installations, infrastructure and more). I really need to heed his warning to get the heck out of Florida. After Irma – I am looking very hard at it although my only child is currently living her dream in Orlando (about an hour from my country home) and it’s hard to leave her behind. The ties that bind!
At first glance "The Passionate Shepherd To His Love" can seem to be a nice piece of pastoral frippery. Considering that it was written, probably, in Marlowe's late adolescence, and if read as a superficial exercise in the practice of a very old form of poetry, it can seem to be light and insubstantial. But any studied analysis of the poem reveals its depth; the poem can be read as containing irony (as written by an urbane man who longed for the city rather than the country, and thus constructed impossible rustic scenarios), serious and heartfelt emotion, a slight political commentary, a gentle sadness, and a transcendent love of nature. Good poetry is often many things to different readers, and Marlowe was able to create, within a codified (and one might say ossified) form of poetry a piece of clever and flexible Elizabethan verse. The Shepherd may not have been real, but the emotions and effects created by this poem have their own reality.
