In 2007 I had a revelation about Dan Brown. I had a rebirth revelation about Brown, not because I met him but because I read him.
After reading his bestseller The Da Vinci Code and even better his earlier book Angels and Demons. The trailer is available for Angels and Demons directed by Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks. Thus I became a part of Dan Brown’s astral family. In a rebirth sense I am also related to Tom Hanks. Why? Because he is a direct ancestor of Nancy Hanks-Lincoln, mother of Abe Lincoln.
Yes, I know it gets complex. I tried to explain it in my book Dinner With da Vinci (which I’ve made available, however this chapter is not a part of it). In order to find a person’s past life you have to in some way become a part of their current life. One reveals the other, and so it was in the case of Dan Brown.
How does one name contain another name?
And what does it tell us about its owner? I use something I call and created: name recognition pattern and it garners high marks. One is often limited to obtaining identities simply because you have not met the person in the life. So you place another person in their stead until you do. It’s not a mistake but rather an application. But before one can make and apply one life to another one must become a part of the other person’s life.
It can happen on the astral plane, mental plane or the physical plane or all three. But somewhere there must be a meeting of the minds, so to speak.
In the case of Dan Brown it turns out that we were astral twins of sorts. I was actually writing about experimental physicists I was working with at the time in 2000. in my book, had a chance to visit Fermi Lab in Switzerland and both Dan Brown and myself were writing about Da Vinci in the year 2000. I did not discover all of this until I read his book Angels and Demos, which in some ways is better than the DaVinci Code.
After getting into Dan Brown’s mind I saw the light of Dante ‘s life flashed through Dan’s life. I compared their history and their names and voila–it was a rendezvous with Italy.
I started researching and writing about this find. It was not published with my book Dinner With Da Vinci wherein I do include other famous people such as Sylvia Plath whom I identify now a biracial English writer/author: Zadie Smith, who was almost named Sylvia as the reborn Sylvia Plath, just one of many in my book.
I asked the question was Dan Brown reborn Dante Bruno? The answer was most intriguing because few know that Dante’s step father’s name was Bruno. And had he accepted it his name would be in history as Dante Bruno, instead of Dante Alighieri.
Read it for yourself. The chapter I wrote can be found here .

Updated, May 29, 1 p.m.: You’ll have to visit JCPenney stores in person to buy the teakettle that resembles former German Chancellor and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Over Memorial Day weekend, a user on social news site Reddit noticed something odd: a teakettle that looked like Hitler. The Michael Graves Design Bells and Whistles Stainless Steel Tea Kettle ($40) recently showed up on a JCPenney billboard near Culver City, Calif. (If you don’t see the leader of the Third Reich, it’s all about the negative space created by the kettle’s Hitler-hair handle, like seeing the arrow in the FedEx logo.) By Tuesday morning, the kettle had gone viral. By Tuesday afternoon, it was sold out on JCPenney’s site.

Melting glaciers and rising temperatures are forming a potentially destructive combination in the deep ravines of Nepal’s Himalayan foothills, and the Phulping Bridge — on the Araniko Highway linking Kathmandu with the Chinese border — is a good place to see just how dangerous the pairing can be.
A bare concrete pillar stands there, little noticed by the drivers of trucks, laden with Chinese goods, that rattle along at high speeds across the bridge, about 110 km from Kathmandu. The pillar is all that’s left of the original Phulping Bridge, which was swept away by floodwaters in July 1981. The deluge was not caused, as is common, by monsoon rain, but by the bursting of a glacial lake. The force of the raging torrent was strong enough to dislodge boulders 30 m across. They still lie in the Bhote Koshi River.

Violence and fear travel swiftly, and faster still in the era of tweets and status updates and 24-hour rolling news. Just after 2 p.m. on May 22, police answered a call to an incident in Woolwich, southeast London. A 25-year-old soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, leaving the local barracks, had been hit by a car and then hacked to death in front of horrified onlookers. One of his alleged killers, later identified as Michael Adebolajo, linked the attack to the British military presence in Muslim countries. “We must fight them as they fight us, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” he said, waving a bloodied cleaver. Video, filmed by an onlooker, was quickly picked up by news organizations and disseminated on social media.
At 7:15 p.m., a man, reportedly armed with a knife, threw an incendiary device into a small mosque in Braintree, a market town in Essex. At 8:40 p.m., another small mosque in another English market town, Gillingham in Kent, sustained a broken window and damage to a bookcase housing copies of the Koran. Back in Woolwich, the far-right English Defence League (EDL) staged a demonstration against Islam and skirmished with police. In a video posted on the group’s website, its leader Tommy Robinson (also sometimes known as Stephen Lennon and Paul Harris), said “We are at war, and unless you can name the enemy you won’t win that war … The enemy is Islam.” The far-right British National Party is calling for a demonstration against “the wicked and cruel enemy within.”
Since news broke of the Woolwich murder, tensions in Britain have ratcheted up. Scotland Yard has increased the number of officers on patrol. Social-media users were quick to ask whether the May 24 emergency landing of a British Airways jet at Heathrow might be terrorism-related; BA said a technical fault had caused the incident. Mere hours later, Royal Air Force jets escorted a Pakistan International Airlines flight from Lahore away from its intended destination of Manchester, in northern England, to Stansted, near London. Two men were arrested, accused of endangering an aircraft. Shortly after that, one of the capital’s main train stations, London Bridge, was closed amid reports on social media of a man wielding an ax; and the M6 motorway, a main arterial route in central England, was shut while police investigated a suspicious vehicle. There were few details and no clarity yet on any of the incidents, but in the febrile atmosphere after Woolwich, it’s all too easy to see links where there may be none. And there has been an upsurge in small acts of aggression. The Tell MAMA hotline, which normally takes three or four calls a day reporting Islamophobia in various forms, has logged 72 incidents. British Muslims feel “a real endemic fear now,” says Fiyaz Mughal, coordinator of Tell MAMA and a director of an interfaith organization called Faith Matters. “It really is quite deep. Muslims have a fear that their institutions like mosques may be under potential attack. And they have a sense that unfortunately something nasty may happen.”
In the latest government/Obama scandal of scandals Eric Holder, whom we know has just got to go before he further ruins the rep of the DOJ. James Rosen who is the head of Fox has made his rounds on the airwaves. Is Eric after him in particular? It seems that Rosen might be a spy!
With the press, in the worthless state they find themselves often in the tank for Obama anyway except for a precious few press and media outlet DOJ or rather the press, has a big friend in the WH in the form of the Dem-controlled government. Fox News seems to be the main target of the illegal requests for information. But that is only the beginning of this scurilous scandal.
The end of this school year saw me jettison some things. The first to go was my prolific blogging both here and on blogcritics. I can’t say I don’t miss it. It did not pay here nor there. So I thought I would make my own money. I opened a stock account and as reporting now and again–it’s going gangbusters.
I have doubled my initial 10K startup. Correction: I did a quick and dirty look at the withdrawals from my porfolio and they come to 11K, and I still have 15K of stock left. So if I sold every position now, I would actually be ahead a whopping 15,000 since January 2013!
I was only in the market to make a little money as in interest on account that I was not getting and this bull market happened on my way to making a little interest.
Everyone is scratching their heads over this market. I am ringing the register with glee.
I know I’ve met the person I was looking for to complete my story. Things are not going smoothly or as expected so I have nothing to say about this meeting except that we met.

(CNN)–High-profile Pastor Rick Warren tweeted Thursday that his son who shot himself late last week had bought an “unregistered gun” from “someone over the internet.”
“I pray he seeks God’s forgiveness,” wrote Warren, a best-selling author and the head of Saddleback Church, referring to whoever sold his son the gun. “I forgive him.”
You know I got depression and other problems and really know that teaching in this mileu is not easy for me. I guess it’s all karma. I also had good news and maybe that’s why things seem to be falling apart. I am sure that I’ve met my soul mate. He is gorgeous and worth the wait.
He showed up on my birthday this year. He’s also Jewish can you believe that? Well, Heloise has dated almost every ethnic group including Jewish men, in the past.
More later. It’s still new and unsettled yet. But I knew it was he on first sight. He looks like he stepped right out a Roman History, ancient, book. He’s Jewish but looks Roman. He’s the one I just could not find.
The Oracle of Omaha still likes the market — but he’s hardly pounding the table.
FORTUNE — In his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) shareholders, released Friday afternoon, Buffett says he still believes U.S. stocks will “do well.” He notes that he made his first stock purchase during the bleakest part of World War II, so even if things look not so great right now, you should end up doing fine as well.
But compare that to last year’s letter. Buffett devoted three and a half pages – over 1,900 words – to a detailed explanation of why he thought stocks were a much better investment than say gold or bonds. (See Warren Buffett: Why stocks beat gold and bonds.) He also said he was bullish on U.S. housing.
