Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

, posted: 2-Mar-2009 12:48

Today is the 105th anniversary of a most gifted individual Dr. Seuss.


  Dr. Seuss was one of my favourites as a child and continues to be  a favourite of children the world over - even though the parents at time may have reservations about having to read some of the phrases!!!

There is a huge amount of information on Dr. Seuss on Wikipedia (HERE)

Three of his books have been turned into movies including the recently released "Horton Hears a Who", along with 11 television specials and a Broadway musical!!


The Poetic meter oft employed by Dr. Seuss is called "Anapestig tetrameter", almost as much a mouthful of much of his writing.


I'll leave you with a sample of one of my favourites to try and read to kids...


Chicks with bricks come.
Chicks with blocks come.
Chicks with bricks and blocks and clocks come.

Look, sir. Look, sir. Mr. Knox, sir.
Let's do tricks with bricks and blocks, sir.
Let's do tricks with chicks and clocks, sir.

First, I'll make a quick trick brick stack.
Then I'll make a quick trick block stack.

You can make a quick trick chick stack.
You can make a quick trick clock stack.

And here's a new trick, Mr. Knox....
Socks on chicks and chicks on fox.
Fox on clocks on bricks and blocks.
Bricks and blocks on Knox on box.

Now we come to ticks and tocks, sir.
Try to say this Mr. Knox, sir....

Clocks on fox tick.
Clocks on Knox tock.
Six sick bricks tick.
Six sick chicks tock.

Please, sir. I don't like this trick, sir.
My tongue isn't quick or slick, sir.
I get all those ticks and clocks, sir,
mixed up with the chicks and tocks, sir.
I can't do it, Mr. Fox, sir.

I'm so sorry, Mr. Knox, sir.

Here's an easy game to play.
Here's an easy thing to say....

New socks.
Two socks.
Whose socks?
Sue's socks.

Who sews whose socks?
Sue sews Sue's socks.

Who sees who sew whose new socks, sir?
You see Sue sew Sue's new socks, sir.

That's not easy, Mr. Fox, sir.............

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!


Who knows! 


but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!


I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Privacy
*Mobile Devices
*Pluto
*technology
*general and specific ramblings
*ergonomics
