  1. Why does he have six toes? It is like an AI image from 1611. LOL https://archive.org/details/1611TheAuthorizedKingJamesBible/page/n1/mode/2up
  2. In your account settings, look for Signature:
  3. I'll suggest you are plenty Baconian enough to promote whatever you do! I'd be interested in being a beta reader, but I swear I can not read very well anymore. I read backwards, up and down, barely reading a few sentences at a time forward. 🙂
  4. I have a hunch it is, of course, Her book is in print, and in amazing quality. It is one for any library and also one to have in your hands a lot. I bought two and already passed one on to someone a little curious about the subject matter. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CLDKDPY8 If you paid for the online version and did not download it, I am sure you can still get it. But the print is really awesome. Every one of us needs to own and hold a copy.
  5. I did not see it until just now! I don't know why it slipped by. I always look at the newest posts. But maybe there were so many that this was pushed down way too fast. And my week has been totally crazy, and still. That is what I do not like about most social media as the stream goes by too fast. They say for popular Facebook accounts maybe 2% will ever see the posts. But if you cultivate a million followers you might have 20,000 viewers. Or if 10,000 followers then hopefully 200 viewers. Kate, your post needs to be in the Light! Maybe tomorrow afternoon or evening I can reply as you present some great perspectives I see!
  6. This is so much fun, maybe I am starting to see better. Page 32 that has the word "Mother" in it, brings up a "yong Sonne by the Widdow," then page 33 begins all about Bacon and his infancy. SOW, the Sow rooting up things. Of course, right? Or maybe I am dreaming this up... 😉
  7. Leycester's common-wealth came up a year or two ago, and I believe it was A. Phoenix who suggested I read it. They shared quite a bit about it here on the B'Hive, but I've never looked into it to explore. Look at page 33: "* The children of adulters shall be consumed, and seed for a wicked bed shall be rooted out , saith God, Sap. 3." Rooted out? Like by a Hog? Page 33? Where is that vneare'd womb anyway?
  8. Same resource, page 157 the first three words are "Sonne and heire..." https://archive.org/details/leycesterscommon00pars_0/page/n174/mode/1up
  9. Wow! These lines share a lot. Knowing it is really hard to click a link, I'll paste a screenshot of the last link so maybe one more person might read it! 😉
  10. And of course we must remember that it is the combined total of the two Secret Shakespearean Seal numbers added together. 157 plus 287 equals 444. 😉
  11. I highlight with my mouse and click "Quote". The reply is below the post, at least the latest post, but the quote appears like above wherever the Reply box is. May be that after a while it goes to the next page if there are several replies? I don't even know! LOL The image of Dee passing the Lamp to Bacon is bigger than those two guys, in my vision. It's passing the Light from the Past to the Future, whatever the Light is. I like to think of it as the Light of Truth, whatever that is, but my belief is partly because it adds up to 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher. 😉
  12. "Alas, at first glance..."? LOL I'm planning on my first glance in a little while already following you lead... 🙂
  13. I love this quote from the link you shared: This shows him seated at his desk, writing and surrounded by books. Above is the motto aut scribenda agere, aut legenda scribere ('Either do things worth writing about, or write things worth reading'). 🙂
  14. Pretty good, Pee! 🙂 Where inDeed? LOL EDIT: adding link that came up in search, but might not be right (page 108): https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/89/Spiegel_van_den_ouden_ende_nieuvven_tijdt_-_bestaende_uyt_spreeck-woorden_ende_sinne-spreucken%2C_ontleent_van_de_voorige_ende_jegenwoordige_eeuwe_(IA_spiegelvandenoud00cats_3).pdf
  15. I had to look up the term and read a little, but would enjoy it if you elaborate. 🙂
  16. Yup, same "Dictionary" as Dodd referred to, and Peter Dawkins. But the "Dictionary of National Biography" is available online and I cannot find the details referenced. That "Jan. 21, 1561" quote has been shared among Baconians over some years and carries some influence. The exact source would be so valuable! There may be another version I have not found. I have not looked into the 1584 "Leicester's Commonwealth" on this quest though.
  17. Thank you. I have tried to locate the actual source he refers to with no luck yet. Any ideas where it might be?
  18. In my opinion, Bacon was leaving his life story in a cryptic method. I never took his meaning as narcissist, but have felt the turmoil he must have gone through living a lie within a lie in public.
  19. If you click Edit Profile you will be able to delete extra videos, etc.
  20. I never saw her live. I'm not sure she ever came around on tour. Today I bought tickets for Bob Dylan who I have never seen either. He is coming to Clearwater in a month and Theresa and I will hear him sing and play guitar live. We are taking inventory on who is left, and especially if we have not seen them live. Bob Dylan is one of them. We were thrilled to see the Rolling Stones a couple years ago. I haven't seen Robert Plant. Sadly I never saw Jimmy Buffet and felt like there would be a more convenient time as he was a Florida kind of guy. Theresa was at the bars when he was a two-bit country singer in Key West at first! But I did take Theresa to see Joe Cocker before he died when I had seen him when he was much younger. She was thrilled. We both were amazed by Paul McCartney a few years ago, and saw Ringo a year or two ago. Thing to remember even among ourselves is that life a bubble. Little clip from one of my AI friends: In comparing life to a bubble, Bacon is highlighting its transient and delicate characteristics. Bubbles are known for their fleeting existence; they appear, shimmer with an array of colors and possibilities, and then vanish suddenly. This is akin to human life, which Bacon sees as brief and susceptible to unexpected changes or an abrupt end.
  21. Fall of '71 my Mom brought me and my brother to visit my maternal grandparents in Bradenton, Florida. I was 11 years old. My grandma and grandpa ran a small senior trailer park. They lived in a little cottage which was also the office with no A/C. They used fans to try to keep cool like many people did back then. At bed time I wanted to sleep by the front screen door that had a fan in the room blowing out muggy inside air to help bring in any cooler air from outside, if there was any. I've always been uncomfortable when its too hot and muggy, even as a kid. Soon as the lights were out and it got quiet while laying on the floor I heard music from some trailer in the park. "I got a brand new pair of roller skates, you got a brand new key..." Whoever was playing that 45 (for we older folks who don't have to Google that term) obviously had the arm to lift and repeat to the player, as if there were a stack of 45's ready to play. After a little while I realized that song was repeating, over and over, for a while! It is a catchy tune, but I realized that something was wrong, it should not be playing for that long. Eventually I fell asleep and woke up later. It was still playing. "I got a brand new pair of roller skates..." We didn't have lighted digital clocks back then, but I knew it was the middle of the night and I had heard the same song maybe 100 times or more. I have never done the math. When morning arrived and the sun came up, it was still playing. "I got a brand new pair of roller skates..." As a responsible 11 year old concerned about old people, I mentioned it to my grandma who had my grandpa go check on the old lady and she was fine, just hard of hearing and fell asleep. I've never had one song play that many times in my brain over such a long period of time, the same song playing for several hours in the night when the world is sleeping. Funny thing is I never got tired of hearing it. Even later when it became a number 1 hit on the radio I still liked it. Its got a catchy tune. And even all these years later I like it. Any other song would have driven me crazy I am sure! LOL I just read this that made me smile: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brand_New_Key Possible sexual innuendo Melanie has acknowledged the possibility of detecting sexual innuendo in the lyrics, but has denied any deeper meaning: [The song], "Brand New Key", I wrote in about fifteen minutes one night. I thought it was cute; a kind of old thirties tune. I guess a key and a lock have always been Freudian symbols, and pretty obvious ones at that. There was no deep serious expression behind the song, but people read things into it. They made up incredible stories as to what the lyrics said and what the song meant. In some places, it was even banned from the radio. My idea about songs is that once you write them, you have very little say in their life afterward. It's a lot like having a baby. You conceive a song, deliver it, and then give it as good a start as you can. After that, it's on its own. People will take it any way they want to take it.[4]
  22. Always one of my favorite Rolling Stones songs as well.
  23. You would enjoy and should read this thread on that topic:
