The Magic Ring . . . what lies in store for two young boys when parents carelessly do not keep a promise?: "Grown-up people really ought to be more careful. Among themselves it may seem but a small thing to give their word and take back their word. For them there are so many compensations. Life lies at their feet, a party-coloured india-rubber ball; they may kick it this way or kick it that, it turns up blue, yellow, or green, but always coloured and glistening."
Its Walls Were As Of Jasper . . . an adventure in imagination: "In the long winter evenings, when we had the picture-books out on the floor, and sprawled together over them with elbows deep in the hearth-rug, the first business to be gone through was the process of allotment. All the characters in the pictures had to be assigned and dealt out among us, according to seniority, as far as they would go. When once that had been satisfactorily completed, the story was allowed to proceed;"

SATURDAY, November 14 at 11am at the S.S. Galaxy: More Childhood Adventures from the Pen of author Kenneth Grahame
The Golden Age is a collection of reminiscences of childhood, written by Kenneth Grahame and originally published in book form in 1895. Algernon Charles Swindburne writing in the Daily Chronicle of the time, called it "one of the few books which are well-nigh too praiseworthy for praise" — the book has come to be regarded as a classic in its genre.Grahame's reminiscences, in The Golden Age and in the later Dream Days (1898), were notable for their conception "of a world where children are locked in perpetual warfare with the adult 'Olympians' who have wholly forgotten how it feels to be young" — a theme later explored by J.M. Barrie and other authors.

Newgrange - megalithic passage tomb? burial place? celestial sundial? fairy mound? home of the gods?
The sun peeps over the horizon on the morning of the Winter Solstice and steals in to light the chamber deep inside Newgrange; exactly and perfectly as if a modern engineer had built it, but it was built around 3200 BC.
