1. December Violet-n-Joey CARTOON:
== == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == ==

In December I continue unfurling my cartoons that have been furled for twenty years. These simple two- panel cartoons start slowly in the first dozen or so, but stay tuned. As we proceed in their chronological order of development, they get even more interesting. Two new cartoons this month. I will publish an Index of cartoons on the website at a later date. Click BACK to return to the website after viewing a cartoon. As of May, 2007, there are two ways to view all Cartoons on the website. Read below:

For newcomers to the Digest, we have created a webpage of all the Violet-n-Joey cartoons! Check it out at: Also note the rotating calendar and clock that follows just to the right of your mouse pointer as you scroll down the page. You'll also see the clock on the 404 Error page if you make a mistake typing a URL while on the website.

The Violet-n-Joey Cartoon page is been divided into two pages: one low-speed and one high-speed access. If you have Do NOT Have High-Speed Access, you may try this Link which will load much faster and will allow you to load one cartoon at a time. Use this one for High-Speed Access.

This month Violet and Joey learn about "The Letter" and "The Release".

Out Our Way:

November was a busy month. Started off the month with my 17" monitor burning out as I was typing my review of “Illusions” – replaced it with a 20" monitor and finished my typing. My plaintiff attorney tells me that we have an offer from the trucking company whose 18-wheeler dump truck took me on a wild ride on I-10 in Metaire rush hour at 55 mph. We’re holding out for a better offer. (2007 Followup: Due to the incompetence of the young State Policeman who ignored the obvious evidence of the Semi's right front tire showing scrape marks when it grazed my left rear tire, and the testimony of a man who reported seeing the truck driver barrelldown upon my tiny Geo from the Power Drive entrance ramp and claimed that neither of us was responsible. Even though only my car had damage, I received only half the value of the car. My Geo, bless its heart, continued to provide me excellent service until we traded it in on a 2000 Nissan a couple of years later, a car that I am currently driving today.)

On the second day of November I had an opportunity to assist a friend who was in throes of an allergic reaction to a dog do a doyle trace. After a 60-second trace, she was able to breathe freely for the first time in 24 hours and within fifteen minutes, her eyes were no longer all puffed up. Read my report of it on at:

Del came with me to several lectures at at my club with me this month. Brian Kelley came with me to a club breakfast, my first since I was inducted.

The parallels of LSU and the Saints football fortunes continued with both clubs achieving identical records of 6-3 to replace a dismal 3-6 record about this time last year. Both clubs lost their premiere runners with a foot injury.

On another note, LSU is being mentioned for a Cotton Bowl berth. If Texas were to be the other opponent, LSU would have faced the University of Texas in three post-season games in the three major sports of Basketball, Baseball, and Football in ONE YEAR. Stay tuned, sports fans. My daughter, the geologist who graduated from UT calls the prospect “dismal.” Del and I have three offsprings and their spouses who graduated from UT and four who graduated from LSU. The only “democratic” thing to do is pull for LSU.

The doyletic activity began to pick up with interested folks popping up in South Africa, Geneva, and Los Angeles in addition to local calls from viewers of the interview on cable TV.

After bulletin folding with Dad on the 16th he invited us to go along with him to the Senior Citizens dinner sponsored by the local DA. I’d been once before when I first turned 55, and now it was Del’s turn. It rained all that day and for three days afterward. The ten inches of rain we got in those four days neutralized the drought we had been experiencing for the year 2000.

I discovered the interesting new disease “fibromyalgia” which is booming. If clients of an attorney in a lawsuit don’t have it at the beginning, they seem to develop shortly thereafter. I wrote a post about it to the doyletics list which is available for you to read at:

On Sunday the 19th we had the exquisite pleasure of attending the baptism of our new grandson, Collin Michael Hatchett, at St. Jean Vianney’s Catholic Church on Harrell’s Ferry Road in Baton Rouge. Attending mass in the unique architecture of that church is akin to attending a Druid rite in the ancient Stongehenge. The bare concrete walls are interspaced with floor to ceiling windows and the altar in the center of the octagonal shaped building is surrounded by pews on all sides. The holy water fonts have been implemented as one long rectangular reflecting pond with a large hemispherical watering pot at one end brimming over with water as the water re-circulates from the pond to pot. This was also used as the baptismal fount for Collins christening. After blessing Collin, Fr. Donald Blanchard held him high as he walked proudly around the center altar area presenting him to the entire congregation. It was a proud moment for parents, godparents and assembled grandparents, I can tell you.

This month, Boudreaux is unable to go duck hunting with Broussard, and figures a way to keep from opening a rift in their friendship and get himself a duck for the pot on Thanksgiving Day, too.
Broussard calls up his friend Boudreaux, “Hey, Boudreaux, you all set to go duck hunting the day before T’anksgiving like we always do?”

“Mais, Broussard, I got some bad news for you,” Boudreaux replied. “I can’t go. I got de ‘blue flu’.”

“How you say dat? The blue flu? What’s dat?”

“Mah wife is blue, and she told me I gots to stay home wit’ her tomorrow to cook for T’anksgiving. So I can’t go shoot dem ducks wit’ you dis year. But you can brang me one back, yeah.”

“Mais, Boudreaux, how I’m gonna do dat me? You know we gotta have bof’us to pole the pirogue back with all dem ducks.”

“Don’t worry, my mom-in-law’s minister’s been axing to go duck hunting wit’ me. He’ll go wit’ you fo’ sho.”

“Boudreaux, you mean dat minister from the church wat don’t drink liquor? I don’t know about dat, me.”

“Look, Broussard, dere’ll be more Jack Daniels for you, n’est ce pas?”

“Mais, I nevah t’ought about dat. You right dere!”

So Broussard and the teetotaling minister ended up in the duck blind early Wednesday, right at daybreak, all ready to shoot ducks for the Thanksgiving feast. The sky was clear, the air was bitter cold, and a strong wind was blowing from the North. Not too many good things come from the North, Broussard thought, as he sipped his Jack Daniels from Lynchburg, Tennessee. Only problem was the ducks must have had blue flu, too, as none of them showed up. So Broussard popped open a bottle of Jack Daniels to take a swig to get warm. The minister popped open a can of Sterno, heated up his tea pot, and poured himself a cup of tea.

It was a long, cold day, punctuated only by more swigs of Jack Daniels and more sips of tea. The sun was setting in the West, when Broussard slugged down the remains of his third fifth of whiskey and the minister sipped his last cup of tea. Suddenly they saw one lone duck flapping its way towards their duck blind. Being occasionally religious, Broussard allowed the minister to shoot first.

The minister stood up, took careful aim, and fired one shot. BANG! The duck wiggled a little and kept flying. BANG! Second shot missed too. BANG! Third shot hit a few tail feathers that floated gently to the water, but the duck kept flying stronger than ever. The near miss must have confused the duck, however, because it made sharp turn that took it past the duck blind again.

Broussard stood up in the pirogue, swayed from side to side, waved his shotgun in the air, closed his eyes, and pulled the trigger. BANG! The duck dropped dead into the water!

The minister exclaimed, “That was an INCREDIBLE shot!”

“Mais, it was easy,” Broussard said, a little slur in his voice, “I jest shot in the middle of the flock!”

[Cajun glossary: T’anksgiving is Thanksgiving, bof’us is “both of us,” brang is bring, de is the, t’ought is thought, dere is there, pirogue (pee-rogue) is a wooden canoe, jest is just, nevah is never, Mais is used like But or Well, “n’est ce pas” is “don’t you know” and mah is my. ]

5. Websites’ ADDITIONS for December
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Take a close look at the Home Page for and you’ll notice some changes. The word DISCOVERY ! ! is prominent at the top. A quote from Michael Faraday about what use is a discovery has been added. The sentence "Fear, Anxiety, and Anger are Endangered Species From Now On!” is prominently highlighted. The font size of the first paragraph is increased in size to make it more readable. The Top Ten title now reads TOP TEN THINGS YOU WANT to make it more personal.

Check it all out at: An important report of a doyle trace to remove a “dog allergy” was added to the Red Wagon page of the website. In this trace a lifetime allergy to Labrador retrievers was removed. The woman’s allergic symptoms were alleviated dramatically when she went from 5 to 4 years old during a 60 second speed trace. Her breathing difficulty disappeared immediately and within minutes the puffiness around her eyes went away. We now have 26 subscribers to the World-Wide Doyletics List, with subscribers from Switzerland to Australia and points in-between. There were about 30 messages in the past month, or about one a day. To read the messages already posted, go to:

We are still working on getting the El Paso interviews shown on the Educational Channel in the New Orleans area, thanks to the help of NO resident and good friend Judy Wood.

The good news is that the interviews are still being shown in Jefferson Parish (the outlying metro area of New Orleans proper) as I’ve received phone calls from viewers. This morning the produce man where I shop for groceries told me he saw me on television. The lack a schedule of viewing times has made it difficult for folks to watch all of the interview or catch both interviews. If anyone wants to view the two interviews, email me and I’ll arrange for you to receive a copy on VHS tape.

Warren Liberty was able to get the local cable company in Ukiah, California to give him a schedule when they broadcast the interviews in October, and the viewers of those airings have generated some interest in doyletics.

6. “A Reader’s Treasury – Journeys in Discovery”
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The biggest website addition for December is the publication of new 30 reviews on-line at These are reviews of books that I read prior to 1987 when I began writing reviews of books as I read them. New reviews will be added each month and I will keep you informed as they do via this Digest. For the initial set, there are reviews of Illusions, Flatland, Visits to Sufi Centers, Conceptual Blockbusting, The Angels and Us, and Frogs into Princes among other titles. These are the books that I read as I began my journey of discovery back in the 1970's. You may join me on that journey by reading these reviews as they are published.

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

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: Bright Air, Brilliant Fire by Gerald Edelman

In this book Edelman lights a brilliant fire under the science of consciousness and that fire casts a welcome glow onto the nascent science of doyletics. Without naming it the doylic system Edelman says that its importance is to help primary consciousness “abstract and organize complex changes in an environment involving parallel signals.” In his own words:

[page 121] Even though some of these signals may have no direct causal connection to each other in the outside world, they may be significant indicators to the animal of danger or reward. This is because primary consciousness connects their features in terms of the saliency determined by the animal’s past history and its values.

I hear often from my Good Readers that they have bought books after reading my book reviews. Keep reading, folks! As I like to remind you, to obtain more information on what's in these books, buy and read the books — for less information, read the reviews.

The second and final Galley proof of “The Spizznet File” has been edited and returned to the publisher. We are anticipating the release of the book by Christmas!

Here is a preview of the book cover. (2007 Note: to order a copy of the book, click on Book Cover below):

From the novel summary:

“How do dolphins communicate? How do dolphins use their enormous brains, equal in size to humans, to experience their dark, undersea world? In this novel, Dr. Mornay discovers the secret of how dolphins see and speak. He builds a device to communicate with them, not in simple grunts and whistles, but in full-color 3-D images. Yes, the dolphins speak ‘moving pictures’ and have a story to tell humankind. Their ancestors were eye-witness to history and their handed-down stories are living newsreels of history. Join the rest of the world for the global ICN telecast -- THE DOLPHINS SPEAK!”
The Dolphin People in the first chapter tell us humans that they went back into the sea because they discovered that the world was perfect the way it was and they no longer needed hands to build machines, so fins were just fine for them. Dolphins will never have problems with the artifices and “set forms” of ahrimanic machines.

By next month’s Digest, I will be able to tell you where to buy yourself a copy of this novel. You will be able to order a copy at B. Dalton, Walden, Barnes & Noble, or search on Wait about three weeks or December 15, 2000 before trying. That’s my best guess as I write this Digest.

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.
