Once more unto the breach……

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!                                          Literature Network » William Shakespeare » King Henry V » Act 3. Scene I

Once more Russell will head into the fight, can the mighty Oil Barron succumb all odds and beat back the mighty Galu?  He  doth have the loyalty of the Princess of Shambo who follows him blindly into battle. The witch from the south has been defeated and sent to exile. The knights of the oblong table now fight amongst themselves over how to overthrow the mighty Barron. Princess Natalie now at his right hand is ready to administer justice to anyone who defiles her Barron. Her band of Merry Men ready to defend the Foa Foa castle and rule the the dynasty. The evil overlord Jeff P. watches over the Kingdom of Samoa to be sure all is fair at challenges and council meetings. It is his duty to berate the common folk of the kingdom until they turn on each other to give themselves a chance to incite a riot which might end their opposers rule.

  1. Well SAL… you have given Shakespeare a run for his money with that one! Very clever. And a true day for Thanksgiving now with the video above!

  2. Hi AGGIE… missed you… you misread my words earlier… hope you have a good time this holiday! Hows Chicago this a.m.?

  3. HAPPY TURKEY-DAY TO EVERYONE… Esp. FRANNIE who doesn’t like turkey! A story for FP2… Every year my grandmother cooked the Thanksgiving Dinner with a perfect turkey. She hated turkey. She always had a slice of ham for herself.

  4. Just watched the vid with Laura (thank you again Sal), and it is amazing that they thought the John Plan was going to work… shows how clueless the Galu Four really are…

    And, just because it is a holiday does not mean that we have to stop talking about Survivor… I have to go tyvek a building now… then to my daughter’s (who does not have TV… so no football for me) for the big holiday. So see everyone later… don’t eat too much.

    Finally, wishing RUSSELL HANTZ a happy day and giving thanks that he will be holding The Check for One Million Dollars soon!

  5. Well,Well ….. we have a family of bloggers wo have graced our Holiday ………… thanks y’all. Be safe and enjoy the day!

    PK – probably thought no one else would show up!!

  6. Hello Everyone. Tried to get this posted sooner but I’ve been “hiding” from relatives that I haven’t seen in eons TRYING REAL HARD TO BE GOOD & find my HAPPY PLACE :lol: for the last 9 hours . Anyway—just wanted to tell everybody Happy Thanksgiving
    And here’s a nicer one.
    Happy Thanksgiving To You All Again

    I hope everyone has the best day possible. Be safe & be good. :lol:

    Gooble ’til you wobble. :lol:

  8. Hi gang… I’m sure you are all in bed by now… I tried to sneak away and get on the computer to say hi, but got caught. See you tomorrow… Yeah, you are right SAL… new season starts tomorrow.

  9. Hi Fran, still pretty tired from yesterday, Ted you will like survivor, laura is still on this one ,i dont get it Ted i dont think she is pretty, sorry. SAl, good morning also.

  10. Good morning aggie…..I’m still tired too. I can’t
    blame it on the turkey dinner because I didn’t stuff
    myself on anything….not even desert. I’m trying
    to lose ten pounds before Christmas so I can chow
    down on the things I really like. That way, I won’t feel
    so bad if I gain a little….who am I kidding.
    Oh well, I’ll talk to you all later from work…if I get time.
    The plan is to decorate and put the X-mas tree up. Hell,
    I don’t even like doing my own. Josh is usually a lot of help,
    but this year, he will only have one arm to use because of the
    surgery. Oh well…the boss is bringing in some (drinks).
    That ought to help…not.
    PK….I will talk to your stubborn ass later. :roll:

    Peace out

  11. Hey boss man….how did you do on football? I screwed
    up and took the Giants over Bronocs. I talked myself out
    of picking Denver. Stupid…Stupid…Stupid. So I am 2-1.
    Later dude

  12. Fran, not to thrilled about holidays at all ,guess who gets stuck cooking ,as far as christmas goes , i havent put up a christmas tree since my father passed away, my mother does not want one in her house either. have a good day Fran.

  13. He wont listen to me at all… we talked about it on my ET account the other day thats why i switched to this one, changed my pic and told him she looks prettier now

  14. I guess everyone is still stuffed from all that turkey yesterday.
    I have to say that I enjoyed the recap episode lastnight. Russells taunting of Dave with the idol necklace was too funny. And I felt bad for Shambo getting so emotional about her sister..great episode

  15. GOOD MORNING ALL!!!… With the dawning of a new season, comes a Kinder and Gentler Ted! I pledge to emulate that paragon of virtue Thumper’s Mom.

  16. Oh, hi Fran… hope all is running smoothly at the bank today…

    And Aggie… so nice to hear from you today. Yes, I cannot wait to see the Survivor Recap Show and all my favorites. I believe I said that I thought Laura was sexy.

    Donna… truly sorry that Eli and the Giants were not able to beat the Broncos.

    And if Miss Tipton is around sometime… I just hope today is a better day for her and her family.

    Sal… waiting to see what you come up with next, Survivorwise…

    And waiting for PK… Hey, that might make a good title for a play.

  17. just logged in before i left to hospital (finally got kids together for the sitter) and wanted to ask Sal for the clip of Russell wearing immunity idol in front of Dave… CLASSIC!! I think you should take the Laura clip down and exchange it for that one!

    Hi Ted and everyone… bye!

  18. Reb took here mom out early this morning for shopamania. Not me… no way… Iron Bowl though at 1:30

  19. Big family Thanksgiving Day yesterday all day… Perfect opportunity for her to pull out our Disney little kids Mickey Mouse table and 6 chairs, lol

  20. Hey….I’m shutting down the other thing….you know
    what I mean? I have so much open here, with all that’s
    needed for work and play. :lol:

  21. It is so freakin cold here, I have a small space heater right
    next to my legs and I am still freezing. I am always cold.

  22. Got to get ready for the Iron Bowl now and drive to Semmes, Alabama, just north of me to meet up with Reb. Keep my money safe Frannie, promise?

  23. DonnaP….he must have been too busy baking pies to
    talk to his cyber friends.

    Did you have a good Thanksgiving?

  24. Sal, dear….just making sure you’re ok too. What’s with all
    you people today. Do we need to send out a search
    party for you too. Come on man, show yourself.

  25. You have got to be kidding….nothing or no one posted
    since my last one at 1:37. Everyone must still be
    out spending their money on Black Friday.
    I’ll check back later.

  26. Boy what a slow day, this place is dead today. Just curious what happened to Jt?, i havent seen him on in awhile, I hope everything is ok with you.

  27. Hi AGGIE… I guess this is going to be hit or miss tonight… just got my TV liberated from the 8 year old dynamo watching Sponge Bob and I’m heading to Samoa…

  28. Hello folks of the Survivor Blog. My name is Kevin W.
    and I have a few things that really need to be said, to you
    and to Cynthia.

    I am extremely sorry for the post I made a few days ago
    with the poem that upset Cynthia so badly. I will admit
    that there were many not-so veiled threats in that poem.
    I will admit that I was only trying to intimidate you,
    Cynthia. I thought that I could make you go out with me
    again. But I have had a hard lesson taught to me tonight
    and I have been told, in detail, about some of the things
    that has happened to you in the your past that I had no
    way of knowing about, that made it literally impossible
    for you to ignore my threats. I admit to you and everyone
    reading this, that my poem was very wrong and I
    understand now why you had no choice but to take it so
    seriously. In short, I have been made to see the error of
    my ways like I never have before. I give you my word,
    for what it’s worth; that I will not bother you again
    Cynthia and I will not bother any of the people of this
    Blog again with my childish tactics. I fully intend to move
    on and let bygones be bygones.

    So again, I apologize for using this Blog as a means to
    get to you and I apologize for interrupting the unity of
    this Blog. More importantly, I apologize for upsetting
    you, Cynthia, and making you feel unsafe. I would also
    like to apologize with everything I have in me to your
    Mother for causing unnecessary drama in her home and
    upsetting her so much. I am told that this was the straw
    that broke the camel’s back, so to speak. I now
    understand many things about you and the way you deal
    with and process things that I had way of knowing before.
    It will not happen again. I will not bother you at any time,
    ever again, while I’m alive. Please do not send any more
    “messengers” here. Ok? I give you my word that I am
    out of you life. You do not ever have to worry about me

    Cynthia I wish you only the best. Have a very nice life.
    Very Sincerely,
    Kevin W.

  29. Just saw the Survivor Recap Show and was delighted to see so much time devoted to The Great One’s strategic play. And a little more insight on Mick was interesting. Dave continues with his hilarious comments. And, didn’t you think that Shambo was unduly harsh on Laura. Nice to see Laura enjoying the beach. Hope to see more of life at Ponderosa, for sure! Eric and The Chicken was fun. Looking forward to next week! Everyone have a nice weekend!!!

  30. Oh Ted….You just liked seeing Laura in her swinsuit.
    Who are u kidding. I felt bad for Shambo. At times
    it looked like Laura was smiling while Shambo was telling
    her story. Seemed rude to me. Ted….you have me on board
    with Russell not but it’s not gonna happen with Laura.

  31. Hello everybody. I hope you all had a great day yesterday with the families & friends. Just wanted to stop by & read a little & say hey to you all. Thanks Snake for letting me know the apology was posted & thank you Kevin for posting it. No worries. We are good to go now that we understand better. Right?? No response needed. :lol:

    Soooooooooo—who besides me watched the Survivor show last night?? Was it just me or did it feel more like what we are used to seeing with Big Brother?? We got to see things that they have NEVER shown us before. How cool was that?? I wish they would do one show like that very week so we could see what is REALLY going on. :lol:

  32. OK did I get here too late AGAIN??? Where is everyone?? Well nevermind. Sometimes it’s best not to know. :mrgreen: Anyway—Snake—did you take a vacation today & give yourself a rest from the blog or what?? :lol: Heeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllloooooooooo is this thing on??

  33. Ok I guess it’s not on. :lol: Going to say Goodnight then. Want to watch DEXTER one more time before the new show comes on this Sunday. Actually I’ll probably watch it once more after tonight. I LOVE DEXTER—the show—that is!! Goodnight fair people of SS Blog land. :lol:

  34. Hi CYnthia, Im Glad you got everything straightened out, I watched one season of Dexter , i dont know why i stopped watching it ,but i have not seen any of the new season, maybe i will pickit up again sometime. Have a good one.
