Early this morning, my Daughter and Son-in Law with their Sheba Inu in their back seat, wisely, headed north out of Florida, and are now safely out of the harm’s way of Hurricane Irma.
Watching the news and seeing the devastation in the Caribbean, I know they made the right decision. Growing Up in the 50s and 60s, I went through a couple of hurricanes in New England. In particular, I remember one of the more than frightening hurricanes. We could see the maple trees bending all in the same direction. The torrents of rain and gale force winds pounded our house on what seemed all sides. The deep bass roar of the storm’s, furious, thunder shook us to the bone. Lightning would suddenly fill the room with blinding flashes. Suddenly, it was calm, the eye of the hurricane passed directly overhead. The rest of the hurricane, seemed pale to us as it tapered off. However, that was nowhere near the intensity of the 150 mile per hour winds and storm surge about to engulf Florida in the next few days.
For those safely out of harm’s way, here is the best classic hurricane movie ever made: Key Largo, about a bunch of criminals and crooks descending on a beach house and getting trapped inside during a level 5 hurricane. It has an all star cast, starring: Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall:

Without looking it up, name me just one quote that you remember from even one book by any author, other than a book title. Then think of Shakespeare, and his quotes role off our tongues, as they were meant to do. His quotes have become a part of our language and our very souls. He was the playwright of his times. He enriched our lives with literally hundreds of quotes in his plays. Right off the top of my head, Shakespeare’s most famous line comes to mind, “All the World’s a stage and we are mere actors upon it.” OK, so I didn’t get it perfectly right, but you know what I mean.
You may know the titles of your favorite author’s novels, but with Shakespeare you know his words for sure. We use his words everyday without realizing it. There is a world of difference between Shakespeare, and any other author who has ever lived. Shakespeare never wrote a novel, his plays were meant to be spoken with meaning and performed Live.
