Back in those days, it was a sink or swim type of environment and one, quite literally, figured everything out on the fly. I can't count the number of trees that were cut down in order to supply me with a continuous stream of literacy bibles.

I should have added that when I talked to the school principal about this subject he said that they are going to start teaching a new writing technique that involves melding cursive and print type writing together since that is how the majority of people write now. Erm, he said the school district is adopting this new style.

I think almost all westerns I've ever seen had a cook named "cookie". Walter Brennan would be a good stereotype, altho I think that I think more of others in that general role. Not sure who set the standard....probably pre-tv at a guess.

Brinegar's character was named 'Wishbone'. Cooks and chuck wagons were ubiquitous in westerns, though I suspect few were in real life as erudite as Roscoe Lee Browne in 'The Cowboys'.
Brennan, BTW, started playing elderly parts in 1933 when he was only 39, after losing his teeth in an accident. He more or less played being 60 for 40 years. That was aided by his high pitched voice, from vocal chords damaged by mustard gas in World War I.

I've seen stranger come-backs than this potentially strange come-back.........if they indeed do come back. They are playing with most of the same players who won it all last season.

Well it looks as though the Padres have awoken the slumping, slumbering Giants. Lincecum pitched a no-hitter tonight and was saved by two brilliant plays. One by Pence who made an unbelievable catch and the other from the "overweight" Sandoval at 3rd. Their bats have come alive all of a sudden scoring 19 runs in the last two games.

The season is still young and FAR from over! smile.gif

P.S.........this thread has obviously sorta turned into a "whatever" thread which is fine by me and seemingly most of you too. I figure when Brian chimes in again we can then get back to the business at hand. biggrin.gif

I agree.. it’s nice having a thread like this to take a break and see other peoples opinion on things and the sense a humor that’s behind the posts. Brian can step in at any time of course.

Not trying to take away from Lincecum's nine inning, historical, no hitter shutout, Posey's catching/hitting/throwing, the brilliance of Pence's catch/batting (despite his batting stance that yesterday, netted another home run), Sandoval's amazing throwing skills to first base or Tanaka's unbelieveable Major League debut, but unfortunately, when two last place teams are playing each other, they're evenly matched and one is going come out looking better than the other. After the All-Star break (some of the Giants won't get a break) the Giants who are 6.5GB, will be playing first place Arizona and then we'll get an idea if they've come out of their slump or the win was because they were playing the last place team.

(yes, each player has what could be considered superhuman skills and so my pessimism is not misunderstood, yes, I am ever so grateful for the last three wins. The last few weeks have been tortuously painful)

My! The Padres second baseman's throw from the knees to first. Geeze! eek.gif At no time do I have stupid style criticism to offer but the last few weeks have not been encouraging and the upcoming series with the D-Backs will tell if these last few wins was due to the level of competition or if the Giant's are out of their funk. I'm voting/hoping for the latter.

Couldn't agree more. D-backs will show us if this is indeed a turn-a-round or if it's simply that they are playing better than the worst team (Padres). Even still, a no-hitter is a major deal regardless of who you're playing and how bad they are. wink.gif

I looked up Walter Brennan's profile on IMDB, was surprised to see the photo of him as a (relatively) young man....he always seemed to play the old crusty guy....did not know that about the teeth/vocal cords, though....his picture made me think of William Schallert....

Barry Zito has served up three home runs, the Giants are on their third pitcher and the score is Padres 7 and the Giants 1. It's the bottom of the third, the Padres are up, bases are loaded, two outs and the count is 2-2......the suspense is killing me. tongue.gif

I appreciate these facts as well as BeeMan's comments earlier. I was just trying to point out that while on the surface, cursive can be seen as an obsolete art there is actually a "method to the madness" so to speak. For those interested I submit the following:

My high school chemistry teacher used to talk in cursive. Every word began before the previous word ended. The whole class period he talked in one long, monotonous breath.

It was impossible to learn anything.

I think these arguments are coming from people that just don't want to let cursive go because it was an integral part of their writing lives. Notably, many of the motor skills benefits being described happen through learning printing, too. The question that is not being addressed is how much is enough.

Also, the article is comparing paper and pencil to keyboarding, not to wordprocessing. What we also know from research in the 1980s and 1990s with the advent of the PC is that word processing with older students (high school and college age) resulted in more writing and more expression of ideas than handwriting. Then there are effects on the process of writing. Wordprocessing allows for and promotes revision in way that handwriting does not (does anyone miss having to copy a text a over again in the process of revision, which discouraged extensive revision?). So to prove literacy benefits of handwriting for writing, there would need to be longitudinal studies to examine effects over K-12.

I hear you. I'm not suggesting that cursive should be an integral part of all elemetary and high school education, and of course you wouldn't want a 4 grader preparing a research paper in cursive. I'm just trying to point out that not all proponents of cursive writing are simply trying to preserve an "ancient art". There is some hard science supporting that there are in fact benefits for young children to learn how to read and write (early on) in cursive.

Well, we could train young children to be hunter/gatherers, and I'm sure that researchers would find benefits for that as well. The point is that there are LOTS of things that young children could do that would provide some kind of benefit. I would want to see evidence of long term literacy benefits.

I absolutely think young kids should be trained to be hunters/gatherers!!! I would much rather my kids be outside playing hide and seek (hunting smile.gif) than sitting inside tapping away at the ipad. They would indirectly improve their social skills, physical fitness etc...

I'll see if I can find some evidence wrt long term benefits, it may not even exist... I suspect there will be studies in about 10 years comparing literacy results in districts that continued to teach cursive vs. those that stopped.

Morals may be a major issue but I think nutrition and sleep can be overlooked by parents as well. Kids with a consistent routine/bedtime who have a nutritious breakfast will perform better than those that do not.

I was thinking that when I posted, that bringing back physical education for kids in schools where they have eliminated it is way more important to their development than whether or not they learn cursive smile.gif

Need more control than that. Too many factors that influence literacy.

Early word processing:


(Youngsters: those are typewriter correction strips)

You'd first have to explain to a youngster what a typewriter is. I have one in our office, an IBM Selectric of many years age, and it constantly draws attention from people walking by. They think we've started an office equipment museum or something. Still the best tool for some jobs we do. It had the self-correcting tape built in.

One of my favorite trivia is that Mike Nesmith's mom invented Liquid Paper (and believe Mike has spent most of it now). For the youngsters, Mike Nesmith was the tall dude with the knit cap on (a fashion foreteller) who was in The Monkees. Who are The Monkees? Oh, never mind...

There's a great expose on the Monkees currently running on NatGeo right now. Check for times, it's VERY interesting!

Yeah, big surprise there. While I don't think I knew that in the first year of watching that new show, I did know not too long after they were backed musically by studio musicians although that somewhat changed in time, they were The Knack of their day (sort of, Monkees were much bigger but same concept as some of the boy vocal bands have been).
