I'm watching a bunch of episodes of "Ancient Aliens" from the History channel about evidence that aliens visited us a long time ago and there are stories in the bible, the Bhagavad Gita and other ancient texts and art that shows aliens, up to and including ancient nuclear battles. So, It got me wondering how you hyenas think.

I got up to pee at 5:42am and I noticed that currently playing on the TV (I fell asleep with the History Channel playing in the background) was some show that was mentioning Thomas Cranmer and the Catholic Church and all of a sudden my ears perked up and I hit the "guide" button on my DirectTV console. It's a 2 hours documentary on the Protestant Reformation. Well, you know I'm just creaming my knickers with that, and on a lark I hit the "record" button and my DVR was able to "record" it back to it's beginning at 5am because it had already been on that channel! How awesome is that???

It's little shit like this that makes me a very happy woman. So now I'm awake and watching the show from the beginning.

I fell into a bluegrass mood about 2 hous ago. First I listened to Chubby Wise to get some traditional flavor, but now I've moved onto Gillian Welch and her album Hell Among the Yearlings. It starts with this lovely haunting tune, Caleb Meyer:

Caleb Meyer, he lived alone
In them hollarin' pines
He made a little whiskey for himself
Said it helped to pass the time

On one evening in back of my house,
Caleb came around
And he called my name 'til I came out
with no one else around

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna
wear them rattlin' chains.
but when I go to sleep at night,
Don't you call my name

Where's your husband, Nellie Kane
Where's your darling gone?
Did he go on down the mountain side
and leave you all alone?

Yes, my husband's gone to Bowlin' Green
to do some business there.
Then Caleb threw that bottle down
and grabbed me by my hair.

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna
wear them rattlin' chains.
but when I go to sleep at night,
Don't you call my name

He threw me on the needle bed,
and on my dress he lay
he held my hands above my head
and I commenced to pray.

I cried My God, I am your child
send your angels down
Then feelin' with my fingertips,
the bottle neck I found

I pulled that glass across his neck
as fine as any blade,
and I felt his blood run fast and hot
around me where I laid.

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna
wear them rattlin' chains.
But when I go to sleep at night,
Don't you call my name

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna
wear them rattlin' chains.
But when I go to sleep at night,
Don't you call my name


I love this song.
