From our Poetry Page
                   The Mysterious Night
                     by Duane Bristow
                     October 31, 1962
        The corn is in the shock.
        The punkin's in the shed.
        The lonely night wind blows away the day,
        And summer.
        It is cold.
        It will frost tonight.
        The cows low in the barn.
        All is silent,
        Save for the rustling of dead fall leaves.
        It is a cold light the lonely moon spreads upon the scene.
        It is a warm light from the home spreading out.
        It is HALLOWEEN!

We were informed today that Leigh Ann Honeycutt, daughter of one of our long time web visitors, Joseph D. Bristow, passed away quietly at 2:30 this morning. Leigh Ann had been ill for a number of months and Joseph had kept us informed by email as he and his wife, Sally Ann, made numerous trips to the home of Leigh Ann and her husband to be with her and to help out in times when she had to be hospitalized and have treatments. Eva and I would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to Joseph and his family.

I have decided to put a current favorite surfing site here periodically (once a week I hope). Some sites I find to add to my surfing pages seem to deserve special recognition because they are not well known but offer something that may be of special interest to our visitors.

The current site is Sunrise Records, a commercial site in Taiwan selling CDs of beautiful oriental music. If you have a 28.8 connection or higher and the Real Player from Real Audio, check them out. You can play the whole CD on the Web before purchase.
(Commercial sites will probably be listed here very rarely.)
