All The Best

THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED

I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

      When did I ever say I was a scholar??

      I don't recall saying that.

      I have a college degree in English Lit. from U of Washington.

      To avoid being drafted in part. ...

    3. An English Lit major that does not know "The Miller"

      How humiliating, for him.

    4. Sorry, when I was in school I got 'hung up' on Walt, Ted, Stevens, John Butler Yeats and others.

      The Bard as well....I had not thought of Chaucer in years.

  3. By the way, if one wants to read about "Chaucer and the Jews' one can go here--

    Chaucer is not my main guy but he certainly is a good part of the old flow of the Rio Books....

  6. Over time, it is unlikely that literature will lead you wrong.

    That is why Boko Haram wishes to ban books.
