In 1995 he published "Economic Thought Before Adam Smith." Chapter 6 is entitled "Absolutist thought in Italy and France." While the sceptic Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1532-1592) laid the foundation for sixteenth century French absolutism, Jean Bodin (!530-1596) in his monster-sized "The Six Books of the Commonwealth." furthered it. Bodin wrote this massive work to blunt the attack of the Calvinist Huguenots on the idea of Catholic monarchy. The key word for Bodin is "sovereignty" The sovereignty of the monarch is unchallengeable. POETIC FRAGMENTS Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) is known for his novels, such as "Ivanhoe," but he also wrote Romantic poetry Here is a portion of his poem "Lochinvar": "So boldly he entered the Netherby Hall, Among brides men, and kinsmen, and brothers, and all: Then spoke the bride's father, his hand on his sword,-- For the poor craven bridegroom said never a word,-- 'Oh! Come ye in peace here, or come ye in war, Or to dance at our bridal, young Lord Lochinvar?'"

NOTABLE QUOTES Ellen Ripley: "Did I.Q.'s just drop sharply while I was away?" (from the movie 'Tklien," with Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley) Nostalgia Quiz Answers (1. a; 2. b; 3. a; 4. a; 5. c) I IcHDIIR VJ g the Way of Life It is perfectly quiet as I sit in my living room chair. The only sound I hear is the even hum of our refrigerator and an occasional melody from the birds outside the curtain covered windows. I woke this morning with a migraine headache and as hard as I have tried to ignore it, I can't seem to halt the constant pounding against my temple lobes. So I sit in a darkened room my eyes half closed from the pain waiting for the ache to cease its tormenting callousness. I take slow deep breaths as my eyes close for a moment and my mind wanders to thoughts of green pastures and still waters. I have no idea what causes such a menace across my head and shoulders but I'm sure it is a combination of worry and the bulging disc in my back doctors recently discovered. Whatever the source, I pray for healing so I can get on with the tasks and responsibilities at hand. I think about how much we take for granted our health, only occasionally feeling the gratitude when sickness and injury begin to ease and we start to feel better. Too often we strain ourselves thinking about all that is going wrong when in reality there is a multitude of things going right. When we wake each morning free from pain, illness and defeat we need to rejoice amidst our circumstances. I have a dear friend who has been going through a difficult time lately and when I spoke to her the other day I told her how God seems to work in mysterious ways. For reasons we may not understand initially, He changes our journey's direction. As days, months, years pass we begin to realize why the jagged path was ours to experience in the first place. I recently found out another friend received news his mother doesn't have much longer on this earth due to cancer which has spread throughout her entire body. I am at a loss for words in such a situation but the same truth holds, perhaps her reality will bring change and understanding to another's disillusion. Although too difficult to comprehend right now, there is a certain peace in knowing none of us live in vain. Life is sometimes riddled with defeat - like a metal file box holding all our important documents, the energy that exists within and around us holds the categorical movements of our days. Our power lies in every attempt we make to release the negativity that hinders us so we can fill up with the optimism which will sustain us. Finding those healing sources of renewal can mean all the difference. Sometimes it is simply about looking past the soiled specks on the windshield to the beauty that awaits and letting go when there is no need to hold on to the pain of our past any longer Every day is new, every moment is brief, and every portion of our lives is set out before us for one reason or another. Although we may never know the answers, it seems the less we search the more we understand and the greater awareness we receive. Outside my living room walls I hear the tumble of thunder as a storm begins to roll in. It doesn't seem to phase the sparrows and blue martins resting in the trees as they continue to carry out their songs of life. I close my eyes and hear the faint tick of our clock as it counts the minutes, second by second. The sound is suddenly accompanied by the rain and hail splashing against our windows. I look out the window and watch as the hail seems to be jumping from between the long blades of grass as if it is scared of how quickly it will disappear once it rests on the warm soil. I emerge from the solitude filled with the peace of knowing every painful moment is followed by the sunshine of easier ones. Waking to such a truth brings credence to our daily actions and compassion to our thoughts. One of my favorite poets Emily Dickinson wrote with such vision of what we should try bring into each new day... It's all I have to bring to- day, this, and my heart beside, this, and my heart, and all the fields, and all the meadows wide. Be sure you count, should I forget, - Some one the sum could tell, - this, and my heart, and all the bees Which in the clover dwell. Sometimes along the way our journeys lead us to places and perceptions we never thought possible. Each unanswered question, unsteady step, and unresolved conflict seems to be directing us to the knowledge we are meant to receive. As the wind rages outside my darkened windows and the clock continues to tick, the ache in my head eases oh so slightly as I look forward to the sunshine that always returns after the storm and the song of life that will never end. Antioxidants Act Like Superheroes Helen Volk-Schill, Pembina County Extension Agent Environmental factors such as smoking, ultraviolet light and pollution cause oxidative damage to cells and form what are known as free radicals. Oxidative damage caused by free radicals contributes to health problems such a heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and cancer. The good news for us is that antioxidants are here to We've all heard of Superman and Wonder Woman. But have you heard of antioxidants? Antioxidants are your body's form of superheroes. The body is an amazing machine. Our trillions of cells work hard each day to carry out daily functions. For the most part, the process goes smoothly. Sometimes, however, cells can be damaged. Member FDIC help save the day. Antioxidants are compounds found in some foods that defend our body from Oxidative damage. Some of the most commonly known forms of antioxidants are carotenoids (which form vitaminAin your body), vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium (a mineral) and various phytochemicals (natural plant chemicals).
