Chesapeake 1850 by Ken Rossignol
"I enjoyed this book. It seemed to me to be written in the style of an old turn of the century kid's book, the kind where you read it and think, "Wow, that was written for kids?" I mean that in a good way. It was intelligent and educational, like a..." Read more of this review »

A nice, clean, attention grabber. It was quite easy to become caught up in the storyline. I'm looking forward to additional books in the series."

“There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us,
it doesn't behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us

Edgar Cayce

“Be not simply good - be good for something”
Henry David Thoreau, Life Without Principle

“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."

[Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928) (dissenting)]”
Louis D. Brandeis

“Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure that there is one less scoundrel in the world.”
Thomas Carlyle, On Heroes, Hero Worship and the Heroic in History

“god grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that anybody may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: 'This is my country!”
Benjamin Franklin

Sorry to take so long to say hello and you are welcome! I am trying to get the hang of this social media. Never had Twitter or FB until 18 months ago.

Nell Grey Thanks for the friending, Ken.

There is a large branch of the family name in Maine which successfully avoided the British attempt to ship them out of Canada and dump them off at ports in Florida and Georgia as is said to have happened to my ancestors. I just spotted your note, sorry to take so long to respond. I was drafted during the height of Viet Nam but they rejected me for vision, which was silly because I was pro-marksman in our junior high rifle club. But who was I to argue with the supreme wisdom of the U. S. govt.

Bert Carson Ken,
You're the second Rossignol I've met - the first was a Sergeant in Vietnam - he was a friend but I have no recollection of his first name - from New England - career NCO - E-7 when I knew him - any idea if he's within a degree or two of you


Sallyandthemonkeys Thank you for the friend request. :) We should talk more!


message 2: by Ken

Ken Rossignol I look forward to reading your Children of the Flower Power, its always a pleasure to get a break and since buying my Kindle in June I have been plowing through lots of books, its really convenient. Sorry for the double entry, I haven't a clue as to why it does this.
