Thanks for another lesson from Arthur L. Guptill Sue :D

He says man can't destroy clouds but that might have changed with the advances in science.

Thanks for the PL, Craig. :)
Yes, sadly, Guptill's comment on clouds is out of date, in contrast to his advice on sketching.

"We should remind the reader...that clouds are possibly the one thing in nature least affected in appearance by man, for though he may destroy forests and alter shore lines, they continue to go their own way uninterrupted." (1922)

Hi Betty, Thanks for "Food in Little Italy"! :D "If foreign travel be impossible ... you may find quite a little diversion and gain some information by visiting the foreign quarters in our large American cities..." (1906)

My go-to supermarket is part of a family owned local chain "Angelo Caputo's Fresh Markets (since 1958)--which appeals to the many nationalities that now contribute their favorite foods to "American" cuisine. I generally try to buy one thing each time I shop that I've never tried before (fruit, vegetable, cheese, whatever), and it's for certain I'll never run out of new foods to explore. https://www.shopcaputos.com/about-caputos

Hi Mary, Thank you very much for James McBride's vivid account of the destruction caused by the 1812 New Madrid Earthquake at Little Prairie, and the aftershocks he experienced from the decks of his flat boat on the Mississipi River! :D

"On landing [at Little Prairie] we soon discovered that the place where we made fast our boat [had been] a burying ground, part had sunk into the river, and coffins were exposed along the bank."


Your selection makes a good companion piece to Audubon's account of the New Madrid Earthquake, which Kevin read for SNF vol. 072: https://librivox.org/short-nonfiction-collection-vol-072-by-various/

Thanks for Food in Little Italy Betty :thumbs:

I love that Neopolitan Ice Cream and candied nuts :D

Two errors noted:

2:00 When cousin Millicent mentioned it in a letter from Italy, I supposed from the name it must be a sorrowful carving in a church or wayside shrine. Forgot to say from the name

8:29 seemed typical to Mrs Browning of our life journey. You said Buckle

Thanks for the interesting diary entry ab out the effects of the earthquake near New Madrid Mary :thumbs:

Nicely read.

A few errors noted.

First you mispronounced Madrid - you said mad rid - it should be pronounced ma drid -- You can correct this if you want.

Repeated the title twice at the beginning. Can delete the second title reading unless you think it was important.

9:07 Each shock continued about two minutes and was preceded by a rumbling noise like distant thunder or discharge of a cannon at a great distance.
You said Earth shock

Thanks for the PL, Soupy. I'll make the corrections soon.

Regarding the pronunciation of Madrid, I would normally say "Ma DRID" and put the accent on the second sylable. However, in the case of the New Madrid Earthquakes, I've always heard the accent on the first sylable - "MAA drid" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be2v6MNe9Qg
I guess it's a case of "Toe MAY toe" 🍅 "Toe MAH toe"

I wasn't sure about New Orleans, but finally decided on a fairly subtle (I hope) "Or le ans" over "Or leens". I thought about getting real slangy and doing "Nawlins" but decided that would be going too far. :)

Wow. I guess I've never heard it pronounced that way :D

Interesting Mary. Thanks.

Thanks, Mary, for these comments! :) I had a feeling that "Madrid" had regional variations in pronunciation, as does "New Orleans." My husband and I both lived in New Orleans in the 60's, which forced our "northern" pronunciation of "New Orleans" into quick "accent reversal."
