Lord of the Flies author loves Women: True!

Snopes Reports!

There is no doubt that Golding spoke these words, perhaps more than once.

A clip preserved on YouTube, in which Golding discusses the origins and meaning of Lord of the Flies, captures him making that pronouncement, specifically in answer to the question of why his dystopian novel featured boys rather than girls:

Girls say to me, very reasonably, ‘why isn’t it a bunch of girls? Why did you write this about a bunch of boys?’ Well, my reply is I was once a little boy — I have been a brother, a father, I am going to be a grandfather.

I have never been a sister, or a mother, or a grandmother. That’s one answer. Another answer is of course to say that if you, as it were, scaled down human beings, scaled down society, if you land with a group of little boys, they are more like a scaled-down version of society than a group of little girls would be.

Don’t ask me why, and this is a terrible thing to say because I’m going to be chased from hell to breakfast by all the women who talk about equality — this is nothing to do with equality at all.

I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been. But one thing you can’t do with them is take a bunch of them and boil them down, so to speak, into a set of little girls who would then become a kind of image of civilisation, of society. The other thing is &mdashl why aren’t they little boys AND little girls?

Well, if they’d been little boys and little girls, we being who we are, sex would have raised its lovely head, and I didn’t want this to be about sex.

Sex is too trivial a thing to get in with a story like this, which was about the problem of evil and the problem of how people are to live together in a society, not just as lovers or man and wife.

Uncle Charlie- married again. And again.

The Funny Uncle with the many wives…

There was something about our quirky, kooky, Uncle Charlie that attracted women.

He was short and balding; he didn’t play one sport; abhorred board games, and would not play cards, dominoes, chess or checkers. He was not good with kids, and women were mad for him.

As kids, we were impressed by the parade of pretty woman he brought to family events. At Thanksgiving, there might be a tall redhead in a tight dress and high heels who towered over him. We all stared.

One Christmas, he brought a petite, blonde woman dressed in all in red – with a velvet miniskirt and black boots. We couldn’t stop staring at her either; she smoked cigarettes and blew circles of smoke. She used a huge gold compact and applied red lipstick in front of everybody. We were entranced. She was the most beautiful woman we’d ever seen. Later, we heard, Uncle Charlie married…

Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas and to all a good night!

Bingo! My very favorite Christmas Carol to you

holiday resort in thailand

Mele Kalikimaka!

Ho, ho ho! Just like you, I like “Jingle Bells” “Silent Night,” “Frosty,” “Rudolph,” sung by Burl Ives,  Elvis’ “Blue Christmas,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” 

howver, I love

Mele Kalikimaka!”

  It is quite possibly the happiest-quirkiest-most unsung hero of the Christmas calvacade of songs.

Our family has six grass skirts stashed away – waiting for any opportunity to sing our very favorite Christmas carol.

 Yeah, yeah, yeah, Bing Crosby got a bad rap-  for all those bad raps –  but, when the King of Croons stops to sing –  we slip into our neon grass skirts- get ready for Hula Hands- and belt out  the island greeting that we send to you…

 

 Aloha and Mahalo 

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas
A very Merry Christmas
A very, very, Merry,Merry Christmas to you

Have more fun this Holiday Season and Reach out and touch Someone

Hey, kids! Try this at home  (and away from home) 

Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone.

I say, “Bah, humbug!” to the bland, vanilla, PC “Happy Holiday” malarkey.

Take it up a notch, say “Merry Christmas” to the people on the bus, in line at Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the Lyft driver, the salesclerk, the bus driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…

So much sadness…

 

Throughout history, it has been the inaction

of those who could have acted;

the indifference of those who should have known better;

the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most;

that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

Haile Selassie
