Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 2 Ms Anywhere In the Word

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenges are really that: Fun.

Her series, Alphabet With a Twist, is now on the Letter M: To complicate things, you have to have 2 Ms, anywhere in the word.

It took self some assiduous looking, but she finally came up with these two pictures of the Prince Albert Memorial in Hyde Park, from her most recent visit to London, a few weeks ago:

#amreading: King Henry the Fourth, Part 2

Prince: Shall I tell thee one thing, Poins?

Poins: Yes, faith, and let it be an excellent good thing.

Prince: It shall serve, among wits of no higher breeding than thine.

Poins: Go to, I stand the push of your one thing that you will tell.

Prince: Marry, I tell thee it is not meet that I should be sad now my father is sick; albeit I could tell to thee, as to one it pleases me for fault of a better to call my friend, I could be sad, and sad indeed too.

Poins: Very hardly, upon such a subject.

Prince: By this hand, thou thinkest me as far in the devil’s book as thou and Falstaff, for obduracy and persistency. Let the end try the man. But I tell thee, my heart bleeds inwardly that my father is so sick; and keeping such vile company as thou art hath in reason taken from me all ostentation of sorrow.

Poins: The reason?

Prince: What wouldst thou think of me if I should weep?

2017 Highlights #1: To the Graduates of Bethune-Cookman

In a year of lowlights (“Rocket Man” and Fake News, the US pull-out from the Paris Climate Agreement, THAT DARN WALL, Charlottesville and “many sides,” the Las Vegas shooting, the Texas shooting, the dissembling of Sarah Huckabee Sanders), self would like to thank the graduates of Bethune-Cookman, for giving her one of the most stirring memories of 2017.

Betsy DeVos, the “woefully under-qualified Secretary of Education,” was invited to speak at the Bethune-Cookman commencement. This is the Secretary of Education who had not (yet) at that point announced that she would put an end to the loan assistance provided to those college students who intended to become teachers. But she had already said her piece about guns in schools: It would be appropriate #because grizzlies. Worst of all (This quote is taken from the open letter to the graduates of Bethune-Cookman, published in Cassius) was “her egregious framing of historically Black colleges and universities as pioneers in school choice.”

!!##@@ Put laughing-so-hard-its-painful emoji here.

The students stood and turned their backs. Literally.

The students defied the presence and rhetoric of DeVos.

Thank you.
