Out Our Way:

This month was a fun-filled month that spanned the Sugar Bowl to the Super Bowl. For over three years the fortunes of our two football teams, the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints, have tracked each other - through losing seasons, coach firings and re-hirings, going to post-season games in 2000 and winning, and well on into this season, when in mid-season their fortunes drastically diverged as the Saints went into the Toilet Bowl, and the Tigers went into the Sugar Bowl and beat the big noise from Illinois.

The City of New Orleans wins by hosting both the Sugar Bowl and Super Bowl this year to sell-out crowds and street-filled revelers. And with the early Mardi Gras on Lincoln's Birthday, February 12, this year, the Super Bowl has plopped itself right in the middle of Mardi Gras season. This Saturday is Groundhog Day and Election Day for a new Mayor in New Orleans. If the Groundhog sees his shadow and pops back in his hole, we'll have six more weeks of chilly run-off weather as the two top contenders from a large field of wannabees do their last minute vote buying, er, shopping.

On Sunday, Super Bowl visitors will become the street parade as they march down Poydras Street to the Superdome. Laissez bon temps roulez is the year-round motto of the Big Easy and the good times literally roll down the streets during Mardi Gras, which follows immediately upon the Super Bowl festivities. If you don't have a friend in New Orleans that likes you enough to send you a King Cake during Mardi Gras season, by all means cultivate one. If it's too late for this year, you might bake one yourself using Haydel Bakery's recipe at: If you're not a baker, call 1-800-442-1341 and order one for yourself. Ask for the cream cheese filled one and tell them Bobby sent you. Talk about good!

Our January was a time of warming fires in the hearth, Dad's homemade hogshead cheese cold on crackers, minestrone soup hot on the stove, and movies on our new DVD player that Santa installed for us in the Screening Room. We signed up for and always have three DVD's ready to watch, or on their way to or from our home.

I went tuna fishing out of Venice with our son, John, and his father-in-law, Rod, at the Midnight Lumps about fifteen miles offshore of the mouth of the Mississippi River out of Venice, Louisiana. We boated over three hundred pounds of fish, amberjack, blackfin tuna, and our prize for the day, a 100-lb yellowfin tuna. I caught a 40 lb. blackfin tuna. It was a messy, bloody business and for me it was a case of "Once in a Row is Enough!" See photo of me with my blackfin tuna.

What a busy week! Tuna fishing Sunday. Monday, lunch with my daughter, Maureen, who turned 40 years old. Friday, Annual Meeting of the Timberlane Civic Association, with good eats afterward. And Saturday, Maureen's surprise birthday party at Legends. Her two younger sisters came in town with my two grandsons for the occasion. And the next day we had a Day Retreat with our Anam Caras.

To round out the month, I received a copy of the interview tapes of Edward Reaugh Smith [middle name is pronounced "Ray" - like in Foxborough, the "ugh" is silent.] with Dr. Roméo Di Benedetto. He was interviewed on the material in his book, "The Burning Bush," for the Renaissance Series of El Paso Community College.

On the 27th we met our friends Ruth and Ted for brunch at Café Marigny. I had the wild mushroom risotto with eggs and andouille sausage. Later we walked into the French Quarter and caught the Krewe of Barkus parade marching down Dauphine Street. Barkus is a dog-oriented takeoff on Bacchus - the carnival parade consists of dogs, costumed, marching, and riding in shopping carts decorated as floats. This is New Orleans' idea of a dog show. Brass bands, beer, and bulldogs. "It don't get no bettah dan dat!" as Boudreaux would say.

This month we feature Boudreaux and his wife Marie solving everyday problems the Cajun way. After the full moon in January is the prime time for plowing our South Louisiana gardens for planting our spring crop of potatoes, unless the sac-au-lait are biting.

One day in January, Marie said to her husband, "Boudreaux, you got to get the plowing for the Spring potatoes done, Sha!"
"Mais, Marie, I'm going sac-au-lait fishing tomorrow, me."
"You got to promise me that you will plow the field before rain comes."
"I promise dat, me."

Each day Marie told Boudreaux, "You better do the plowing tomorrow." and Boudreaux said back, "Mais, I'm going sac-au-lait fishing, me." This went on for three weeks till one evening the weather forecast said, "Rain day after tomorrow." Armed with this information, Marie approached her husband again, "Boudreaux, tomorrow you got to plow for sure."
"Okay" came his reply.

Sure enough the next morning Boudreaux got up early and went out to hitch the plow to the mule. But what did he find? His only mule was dead!
Marie, who was following close behind him to make sure he did the plowing, began yelling at Boudreaux, "Now you done it! How you gon' plow today when our mule is dead? You and your merde fishing!"
"Look, Marie, I promised I'd plow today, and I will. Hitch the plow up to me and I'll be the mule to do the plowing."
So she hooked Boudreaux up to front of the plow, grabbed the handles of the plow and yelled, "ALLONS!" and away they went plowing a row as straight as a sugar cane stalk right down to the edge of the field. When Boudreaux reached the edge of the field he kept on going through a shallow ditch until finally he done run himself right up into the barbed wire fence.

Marie, she was mad, yeah, as she yelled, "Boudreaux, how could you be so DUMB!?! Runnin' yo' self into the fence like dat!"

Boudreaux turned around and gesticulated wildly as he yelled back to Marie, "Who's dumb, me!?! Mais, you de one wat forgot to say WHOA!!!"

Need a good quote to start off a speech? Looking for the exact wording of a quote by Voltaire or the origin of the phrase, "As above, so below"? A whole spate of new quotes have been added. Check it out at Bobby's Treasury of Famous and Interesting Quotes:

Check the Frequently Asked Questions or FAQ Page of the Website. A Quick Index to the long list of questions has been added for your navigation convenience:

Many of you have been doing doyle tracing and may have wondered exactly how it is that just "counting time," as a young friend in Sweden calls it, can create such dramatic changes in your life. For the answer go this page: -- it contains an essay on doylic memory with diagrams to show in detail how I imagine that a speed trace works.

The home page has been modified to attract people to the website that may surf in briefly. The top of the home page has hyper-links for people to get more information about some particular problem they have that a speed trace could easily eliminate. Check it out at:

A friend asked me the following question, "Did you see the article in the newspapers about the fear of flying clinics? Particularly about their ineffectiveness and lack of attendance since 9/11 - have you ever considered that as a potential area of eliminating fears?" The answer has been posted on the website on the Frequently Asked Questions FAQ page at

Another question that comes up is, "How do you do speed traces with children?" I've added an expanded answer which has instructions for the "surreptitious speed trace with children" on the FAQ page as well at:

And finally, the colorful book jacket of the Burning Bush, which I posted in the upper right hand corner of the review page, seemed to beg for a little animation. It takes a little longer for the page to load, but I hope you will enjoy it at: Also I added my photo to the top of the list of Digest archives at: - if you'll look closely after the loading is done, you'll notice a subtle animation in that photo as well.

6. ARK OF AGES - A Poem by Bobby
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

(refrain adapted from
Rock of Ages by Augustus Montague Toplady)

This poem first appeared in my review of Kevin Dann's Lewis Creek Lost and Found without explanation, so for my good Readers who may have been puzzled by its meaning, I offer one here. The "Ark of Ages" is the immortal spirit that lives in you, your Individuality, your "I", your Ego body, that, like an ark, carries you from lifetime to lifetime. In this third millennium after the birth of Christ, the time has come for us to remember that we are body, soul, and spirit once more and that this one life is but one leg of a voyage to the stars. At each port we drop off our baggage, change bodies, and re-board. The baggage we left on the ship from the last leg is still there waiting for us to lug around and work through on this trip. We are wise to do so and to strive to avoid creating new baggage for the next leg of our cruise into eternity. As we read the poem, we in effect ask Moses, Abraham, and Christ Jesus to listen attentively (harken) to our heart and to help us in our spiritual journey by allowing us to nestle in them, by allowing a part of them to nestle in us, and finally by helping us to recognize that the immortal part of us nestles within us. If not now, when?

Ark of Ages, Cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

The creek becomes cradle
The bulrushes rocking
And Moses my dear one
'arken to my heart.

Ark of Ages, Cleft for me,
Let Thee hide myself in Thee.

The sacrifice forestalled
The Angel rushes in
Abraham father of Isaac
'arken to my heart.

Ark of Ages, Cleft for me,
Let Thee hide Thyself in me.

The cradle becomes cross
Holy Ghost rushes in
And Jesus my dear one
'arken to my heart.

Ark of Ages, Cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in me.

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for February:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: Lewis Creek Lost and Found by Kevin Dann

One of the pleasures of reading the Journals of Henry David Thoreau is to go walking with him through the woods and see the world of nature through his eyes. Surely no one today walks through woods like Thoreau, one might think. Well, Kevin Dann walks through woods and writes about his walks in a manner strikingly similar to Thoreau. Lewis Creek and its ecosystem lays exposed for us in all its biological and geological wonder as Kevin engages us in his exploration of its environs and its history. If you're one who, like me, looks at rocks as just rocks and plants as just plants, be prepared to find out that the jack pine's proper name is really Pinus bankiana and that fossilized seaweed in the rock has as its Latin name, Paleophycus incipiens.

What trees and rocks with hidden names populate the area where you live? Take a walk in Vermont's Lake Champlain area along Lewis Creek and it might set you to thinking about such things as you enjoy the trek in the good company of a modern day Thoreau.

To read the review and take a walking tour of the past and present of Lewis Creek with Professor Kevin Dann, click below:

2.) ARJ2: The Burning Bush by Edward Reaugh Smith

This is an extraordinary book. Encyclopedic in its scope, while maintaining a readability that few encyclopedias ever achieve. One can ill afford to ignore this book if one is interested in understanding Christianity. The Bible alone is like a treasure map with key portions of the map cut out to prevent the casual observer of the map from locating the treasure. Edward Reaugh Smith has scoured Rudolf Steiner's works to locate the missing pieces of the map and has provided us with a completed map of Christianity and salvation, salvation in the microcosm of our individual selves, and salvation in the macrocosm for all of humanity.

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
