GNIRPS:

When you get a Scarlet in Orange County next to Georgia and Mitchell, you think of O’hara. Not the airport. Don’t say I don’t know nothing about birthing no map synchs!

bb:

I won’t GNIRPS. And thank you again for your contributions to the Frank and Herman, Einstein! blog.

GNIRPS:

Glad to be of service.

Orangeville points out Orange County, Indiana home of basketballhead legend Larry Bird. Scarlet in northwest corner of same county. Near Scarlet, WV is Bias, like Lenny Bias. Larry Bird and Lenny Bias: twins. Orange basketballhead twins, highlighted in scarlet. Third Scarlet (GA) near Seals(ton). This is, once again, the Scarlet Triangle.

Georgia was also Larry’s mother’s given name.

map sinking feeling 03

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleveland_Rocks

The song was covered in 1997 by The Presidents of the United States of America as the opening theme of the television program The Drew Carey Show, a situation comedy set in Cleveland. It accompanied a lavish opening sequence in which the cast lip-synced the song while performing elaborate choreography. The band covered the entire song, but only part of it was used for the Drew Carey theme. At the beginning of the recording, Drew Carey (a native of Cleveland) can be heard saying “Hey!” and then laughing, and at the end shouting “Ohio!” to an echoing effect. The latter soundbite appears in both the theme song and the full-length version of the song, and is a direct remake of the original, which has a similar “Ohio!” soundbyte at the end. The song is a track on the album Cleveland Rocks! Music From The Drew Carey Show as well as on the band’s compilation Pure Frosting. This version is traditionally played after a home win for either the Cleveland Indians or Cleveland Cavaliers.[citation needed]

Hunter’s original version would later open a Drew Carey “mistakes” episode.

As we close in on Election Day in a race that may well be decided right here in Ohio, are you aware that no fewer than eight of America’s presidents have been Ohioans themselves? The only other state that can claim that many presidents is Virginia, and Virginia and Ohio like to bicker back and forth over which one owns the nickname, “The Mother of Presidents.”

Baker (excerpt):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caledonia,_New_York

Communities and locations in the Town of Caledonia

Baker – A hamlet in the northeast part of the town.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caledonia,_Ohio

Notable natives

Warren G. Harding was a resident of Caledonia during his childhood, and worked for a brief period of time at the community newspaper, The Argus.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_G._Harding

Upon graduating, Harding had stints as a teacher and insurance man, and made a brief attempt at studying law. He then raised $300 in partnership with others to purchase the failing Marion Daily Star, the weakest of the growing city’s three newspapers. By 1886, he completely owned the Star.[14][16]

….When Harding moved to unseat the Marion Independent as the official daily paper, he met with strong resistance from local figures, such as Amos Hall Kling, one of Marion’s wealthiest real estate speculators. The editorial battle with the Independent became so heated that, at the inevitable mention of Harding’s questionable bloodline, father and son brought a shotgun and demanded a retraction at gunpoint. They were successful.[18]
Florence Harding

While Harding won the war of words and made the Marion Daily Star one of the most popular newspapers in the county, the battle took a toll on his health. In 1889, at age 24, he suffered from exhaustion and nervous fatigue. He spent several weeks at the Battle Creek Sanitarium to regain his strength and ultimately made 5 visits over 14 years.[19] Harding later returned to Marion to continue operating the paper.

…. In the last year of his Presidency, anticipating no resumption of his journalism career following his years in the White House, Harding sold the Star to Louis H. Brush and Roy D. Moore for $550,000.[25]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherwood_Anderson#Early_life

The Andersons headed north to Caledonia by way of a brief stay in a village of a few hundred called Independence (now Butler). Four[7] or five[8] years were spent in Caledonia, years which formed Anderson’s earliest memories. This period later inspired his semi-autobiographical novel Tar: A Midwest Childhood (1926).[9] In Caledonia Anderson’s father began drinking excessively, which led to financial difficulties, eventually causing the family to leave the town.[9]

7. Townsend (1987), 3
8. Rideout (2006), 18
9. Rideout (2006), 20. For connection between Tar and Caledonia, also see Anderson (1942), 14-16

The success of Dark Laughter put some extra money in Anderson’s pocket, and he used it in 1926 to purchase Ripshin, a small farm outside Marion in southwestern Virginia. Soon after, he also bought two newspapers, the Smyth County News and the Marion Democrat. As a newspaperman, Anderson immersed himself in local politics and even sometimes adopted an alter ego and pseudonym, Buck Fever, to report on colorful characters and events in town. (He collected some of his Buck Fever columns in 1929’s Hello Towns!) Anderson gave ownership of the newspapers to his son Robert in 1929….

Anderson moved from Caledonia to Clyde in 1884.

Taft and Harding are the last 2 (of 8) presidents born in Ohio. 2 of these 8 were assassinated (4, Garfield, and 6, McKinley). Both Taft and Harding only served 1 term. Taft was considered a “standard” president, while Harding is considered one of the worst, and could have been the first to be impeached had he not died in office. William Henry Harrison, the first Ohioan president, also died in office, the first president to do so.

More strange stuff indeed…

smoky01

That’s all the Smoky/ pp in the US, including variations. Lo and behold, the Lovely, KY we were just talking about pops up, and right next to the only legitimate Smoky in Calvert County, MD. The variant name for Lovely, and why it shows up in this list, is Smoky Bottom.

I’m not sure if this means anything but a pointer to Kate Swift of [Winesap], who is Lovely as described by Rev. Hartman (and Lovely *and* a Beauty in the next story) and also a smoker — smoky or smokey. We know this through Smoky Ordinary, VA linked to Ordinary, VA and Glass and Lady and Achilles. The Lady is Kate again, who, at the end of the reverend’s story, becomes one with the praying child of the window who has lost his (Achilles) heel. Story of Achilles, then, to refresh my memory. This is only US Achilles besides one in remoter part of Kansas (Rawlins County).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achilles%27_heel

In Greek mythology, when Achilles was a baby, it was foretold that he would die young. To prevent his death, his mother Thetis took Achilles to the River Styx, which was supposed to offer powers of invulnerability, and dipped his body into the water. But as Thetis held Achilles by the heel, his heel was not washed over by the water of the magical river. Achilles grew up to be a man of war who survived many great battles. But one day, a poisonous arrow shot at him was lodged in his heel, killing him shortly after.

The use of “Achilles heel” as an expression meaning “area of weakness, vulnerable spot” dates only to 1840, with implied use in Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Ireland, that vulnerable heel of the British Achilles!” from 1810 (Oxford English Dictionary).[5]

Money may also be involved. Only 1 of 2 Moneys in US in Gloucester County, along with a historic Cash. The other is in Mississippi with possible attachments to Pink Floyd’s song Money, reinforced by Money Creek + Root River in Houston County, Minnesota, remembering that we’ve brought up this county before (archetypal 2, as in HHH). Floyd’s Gilmour croons that money is the root of all evil to-day in the song Money, a famous line of the Dark Side of the Moon album. Money is another achilles heel for a lot of people — worrying about it in various ways (not having enough, wanting more, etc.). Not the Winesap reverend’s problem necessarily, but add it to the list along with sexual temptation. At the top again, Minnesota is more about Nixon (through Hixon) and him being a crook and exposed after the ’68 election. Nixon tops native son Hubert H. Humphrey. We’ll travel down that path or Trail sometime soon as well, hopefully avoiding the Gully. 🙂

Another type of smoke (monster) we’ve been seeing on LOST a lot lately. We’re at the final episode… started in July!

This smoke monster began as an ordinary man, a Man in Black like Cash. A man without a name, not even Sue.

“We need to go back to Willard-Note, then, and look at more examples perhaps. Willard is a note in the Book of Music known as Winesap. We know what Winesap is. It’s in Herbert Domain. You can make Cash off of it. Get Credit for it. At the top is the 2 Hermans and the 2 Fishers. You know what this is. A door, an opening. You know that Bono *shuts* the door after ’23. Faulkner County is deadened, but that may be a green book behind the blue and red book we are dealing with. You know that too.”

bb:

Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes. In the flesh.

bb:

Thanks for showing up. We have a little time I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Always time for me, right?

bb:

Yes. So the trail leads to the Beech Grove which is the Beach City — for Willard — and inside this grove he thinks of Kate Swift. The reverend who has broken a corner of the Glass in his bell tower study also thinks of Kate — the Lady. He thinks the lady who smokes in her bed and reads is sinful but he also remembers reading books of ladies’ smoking so perhaps it is not so un*Ordinary*. Smoking is ordinary. Smoky Ordinary.

Hucka D.;

Yes. You are doing fine. Good night.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D.

“So continuing… I also believe Lovely and Beauty relate to Kate Swift, as described by both Reverend Hartman and also George Willard. As Lovely is also Love + Lee, this may related to the Civil War and Confederate Army led by Lee, and war fields involved, many of which are in Virginia. We’ve already encountered Love Valley in various disguises.”

bb:

I thought you had gone to bed, Hucka D. Maybe you should turn out the light.

Hucka D.:

Oh… just borrowing your computer for a while. Couldn’t you sleep?

bb:

Kept thinking of Warfield and Paul and wars in general. Civil War.

Hucka D.:

Me too.

bb:

I see that a Warfieldsburg is only several miles north of Winfield in Maryland, Hucka D. Missed that before.

Kermit also here:

Hucka D.:

Didn’t Kermit the Frog with the face of Cardboard Derek Jones greet Baker Bloch in the afterlife at West End? Think so. And also Kermit has come up regarding that rock in Sharieland, the one that looks like a frog. *Wait*, there was a *Dolphin* Rock as well there. Wasn’t there?

stuff more map 04

All pp in Craighead County west of the county seat of Jonesboro.

craighead02

Several more from this list, then…..

hern/: 8 of 8:

I won’t list these out but it’s split evenly, 4 to 4, by “Hern’s Grocery” and “Northern Ohio”. Perhaps strange that there is a Northern Ohio in Arkansas not too far from the listed Herndon above, in Poinsett County immediately south of Craighead…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Ohio,_Arkansas

The community of Northern Ohio has been noted for its unusual place name.

gib/: 1 of 1:

All during the first year Louise tried to make her husband understand the vague and intangible hunger that had led to the writing of the note and that was still unsatisfied.

nem/: 3 of 3:

Into Jesse’s mind came the conviction that all of the Ohio farmers who owned land in the valley of Wine Creek were Philistines and enemies of God.

He was not one to arouse keen enthusiasm among the worshippers in his church but on the other hand he made no enemies.

Might not one by striking his person strike also the greater enemy—the thing that smiled and went its own way—the judgment of Winesburg?

All of these regard Winesburg or the people in the Wine Creek valley as enemies or potential enemies. See also: nemesis (anagram of enemies).

This one just east of Jonesboro: oddly named “Apt”.

apt/: 1 of 1:

The piece of glass broken out at the corner of the window just nipped off the bare heel of the boy standing motionless and looking with rapt eyes into the face of the Christ.

A broken piece of glass as “Achilles heel” is implied, with the hole offering a view of a (naked) lady.

I think Scarb (historical) might represent this…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity#Examples

My example concerns a young woman patient who, in spite of efforts made on both sides, proved to be psychologically inaccessible. The difficulty lay in the fact that she always knew better about everything. Her excellent education had provided her with a weapon ideally suited to this purpose, namely a highly polished Cartesian rationalism with an impeccably “geometrical” idea of reality. After several fruitless attempts to sweeten her rationalism with a somewhat more human understanding, I had to confine myself to the hope that something unexpected and irrational would turn up, something that would burst the intellectual retort into which she had sealed herself. Well, I was sitting opposite her one day, with my back to the window, listening to her flow of rhetoric. She had had an impressive dream the night before, in which someone had given her a golden scarab — a costly piece of jewellery. While she was still telling me this dream, I heard something behind me gently tapping on the window. I turned round and saw that it was a fairly large flying insect that was knocking against the window-pane from outside in the obvious effort to get into the dark room. This seemed to me very strange. I opened the window immediately and caught the insect in the air as it flew in. It was a scarabaeid beetle, or common rose-chafer (Cetonia aurata), whose gold-green colour most nearly resembles that of a golden scarab. I handed the beetle to my patient with the words, “Here is your scarab.” This experience punctured the desired hole in her rationalism and broke the ice of her intellectual resistance. The treatment could now be continued with satisfactory results.[16]
