Editor’s Foreword
A wedding poem, but one that can certainly be relevant to life as a whole, in many of our relationships.
SFFH: Article

I saw two clouds at morning,
   Tinged by the rising sun,
And in the dawn they floated on,
   And mingled into one;
I thought that morning cloud was bless’d,
It moved so sweetly to the west.

I saw two summer currents
   Flow smoothly to their meeting,
And join their course, with silent force,
   In peace each other greeting;
Calm was their course through the banks of green,
While dimpling eddies play’d between.

Such be your gentle motion,
   Till life’s last pulse shall beat;
Like summer’s beam, and summer’s stream,
   Float on, in joy, to meet
A calmer sea, where storms shall cease–
A purer sky, where all is peace.

Born in 1796 and died in 1828; both in New London, Connecticut. Educated as an attorney, his true passion appeared to be poetry.

Canville Virtual Village
Under Reconstruction...
There was a time when the streets were alive with the sounds of children playing, friends gathering, and adults conversing. When the heat of summer met its match in an ice cream bar delivered by the friendly chap in the neighborhood ice cream truck. Or, a rubbery hose would refresh children with the spraying of water into the air. Oh, how times have changed. Where go the little children now? Where now gather the teens? Where chatter away the adults all afternoon? And, alas, what has become of the lonesome ice cream man?

In today’s fast-paced world, where many suffer from information overload, we offer a retreat from the headaches of the computerized world in our own Suburbs of the Information Superhighway, Canville Virtual Village. Click here to visit the site.

The Rundown
Dan C. Rinnert: Or show two dates. A thread-started date and a last post date...

Lawrence Richards: Perhaps the date column in the forums could show the date of the last post instead of the first.
