A Moment to Remember

Spot-on, as always.

What Matters Most

Not long ago I was walking through the beautiful William H. White, Jr. Library late on a Friday evening before the St. Christopher’s football game the following day. I came across a senior defensive back deeply immersed in a paper for his philosophy class. I was intrigued by his title: “What Is the Truth and How Do You Know?” We visited for several minutes and I walked away, reminded that the rhythm and routine of Woodberry matters in ways that help boys grow into young men, prepared for the challenges and opportunities of a changing world.

Boys have never needed Woodberry more than they do today, and Woodberry has never been more relevant to the world than it is today. This may sound like headmaster hyperbole, but let’s be honest: adolescent boys are engines of distractibility, and in a culture that celebrates the latest iteration of the iPhone, 24-7 gaming…

Rebalance, Karuna, and Sidespied

January 10, 2017 § Leave a comment

I’m always interested in what the pros come up with theme-wise. There are so many themes out there that most originality anymore is subtle. But these, and quite a few other more unique, themes from Themeshaper, who’s part of Automattic, who’s associated with WordPress, are among the best of the crop. If you’re looking for a solid free theme, Themeshaper/Automattic should be a primary stop.

ThemeShaper

We have three Automattic-made themes now available on WordPress.org.

Rebalance is a fresh take on the classic Imbalance 2 theme. Designed by Mel Choyce and developed by Allan Cole, Rebalance is a contemporary portfolio theme for photographers, artists, and graphic designers looking to showcase their work, and features an elegant Masonry grid for displaying both blog posts and Jetpack portfolio projects.

Another Mel Choyce-designed creation, Karuna is a clean business theme crafted with health and wellness-focused sites in mind. With bright, bold colors, prominent featured images, and support for customer testimonials via Jetpack, your business’s brand is sure to shine with Karuna, which was developed by Caroline Moore.

Child theme Sidespied puts a new spin on Espied, a classic portfolio theme. Created by Tammie Lister, Sidespied shows off photos and images of all kinds in a clean grid layout.

A new pair of boots is a big deal in my life. I tend to keep these things for decades and have them resoled and conditioned regularly. I don’t buy them often in other words. These will probably be on my feet when I finally croak.

Dossier on Hillary Clinton from DNC

June 22, 2016 § Leave a comment

Digital security isn’t something HRC does very well.

GUCCIFER 2.0

This’s time to keep my word and here’re the docs I promised you.

It’s not a report in one file, it’s a big folder of docs devoted to Hillary Clinton that I found on the DNC server.

The DNC collected all info about the attacks on Hillary Clinton and prepared the ways of her defense, memos, etc., including the most sensitive issues like email hacks.

As an example here’re some files:

2016er Attacks – HRC Defense Master Doc [updated]

04.29.15 CGEP

2016 Democrats Positions Cheat Sheet 7-7-15

20150426 MEMO- Clinton Cash Unravels

Attacks on Clinton Family Members

Clinton Foundation Donors $25K+

Clinton Foundation Vulnerabilities Master Doc FINAL

Clintons PFD 2015

HRC Defense – Emails

HRC Travel – Private Jets FINAL

MEMO — Clinton Cash Claims (2)

You can download the archive with all files using any of the links:

The Suicide of Venezuela

April 28, 2016 § Leave a comment

This describes a future America, if things don’t change soon for the better. All of these conditions are Democrat talking points, however I wouldn’t expect any to be able to see that it describes their policies exactly. When you exist on “Hope” and violently yell “We can,” at everyone when reality and history clearly illustrate you can’t, of course you’re going to think the outcome will be different this time. (That is, if you’re even aware of possible consequences and what’s really going on in the world, which is pretty complex to say the least, so that’s a large set of assumptions.)

Joel D. Hirst's Blog

I never expected to witness the slow suicide of a country, a civilization. I suppose nobody does.

Let me tell you, there’s nothing epic about it. We who have the privilege of travel often look down in satisfaction at the ruins of ancient Greece; the Parthenon lit up in blues and greens. The acropolis. The Colosseum in Rome. We walk through the dusty streets of Timbuktu and gaze in wonder at the old mud mosques as we reflect on when these places had energy and purpose. They are not sad musings, for those of us who are tourists. Time has polished over the disaster. Now all that is left are great old buildings that tell a story of when things were remarkable – not of how they quietly fell away. “There was no reason, not really,” we tell each other as we disembark our air-conditioned buses. “These things just happen…

Finding Your Purpose

Another inspirational and thought-provoking post from Byron worth sharing.

What Matters Most

boysprayer_finalThe following entry is the sermon given on Sunday, January 10, 2016 in St. Andrew’s Chapel by Headmaster Byron Hulsey:

“These are the times that try men’s souls. Winters here are awful. Regardless of how much fun your break was, how awesome your spring break plans are, in this stretch from now until early March, more than any other time, you will wonder what you’re doing here.” So writes our friend Publius in a recent edition of The Anarchist. Now Publius and I don’t agree on everything, but he’s certainly right about this: winter at Woodberry is tough. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s gloomy. Guys don’t feel well, struggling to shake a cold before it turns to bronchitis, doing everything possible to avoid the stomach virus when it starts to rifle through the dorms. The academic load can seem unrelenting, the teachers unceasing in their high standards…

Taking Care of Each Other

I always enjoy Byron’s writings. Very little ever changes at WFS.

What Matters Most

It’s a great privilege to welcome you here to this special place at the start of the 127th year at Woodberry Forest. I want to offer a warm welcome to all 128 new boys. I hope and trust that no matter where you are from you will come to think of Woodberry as a second home, the community of teachers and coaches and fellow students that cared for you and challenged you and shaped you at the most formative time in your life. Thirty-two years ago, my parents dropped me off at Woodberry as a new boy fourth former. From the moment I came on campus I had a feeling I have never shaken, a feeling that I might have had fleetingly in other places, but never so enduringly as I do at Woodberry Forest: Here I feel big and small at the same time. Right away, as a…
