Well I think there has to be a balance. The mug market was something that was really affordable for people and not every time you buy a piece of ceramics are you going to get a gourmet cup of coffee either. So I think it was a good introduction to the community but we also want people to know that we are artists and we exhibit and not everything we make is mugs. So we want to plan different types of events. We would like to do some community outreach too and not always be about sales. We just kind of look at our group and see what they want to do.
Princeton University PressHardback: ISBN 0-691-06532-2 (1988) From the fatal shipwreck of the opening episode to the late reflections on the Pilgrims' Cape Cod landing and reconnaissance, encounters with the ocean dominate Thoreau's compelling account of Cape Cod. His trips to the Cape, he wrote, were intended to afford \"a better view than I had yet had of the ocean\"; and in the plants, animals, topography, weather, people, and human works of Massachusetts' long projection into the Atlantic, Thoreau finds \"another world.\" Throughout, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, farmers and salvagers, lighthouse-keepers and ship-captains, as well as his own intense confrontations with the sea as he travels the land's outmost margins.
This collection of fifty-three early pieces by Thoreau represents the full range of his youthful imagination. Collected, arranged, and carefully edited for the first time here, the writings date from 1828 to 1852 and cover a broad range of subjects: learning, morals, literature, history, politics, and love. Included is a major essay on Sir Walter Raleigh that was not published during the author's lifetime and a fragmentary college piece here published for the first time. Titles of essays published in the volume are given below.
Excursions presents texts of nine essays, including some of Henry D. Thoreau's mostengaging and popular works, newly edited and based on the most authoritative versions ofeach. These essays represent Thoreau in many stages of his writing career, ranging from1842--when he accepted Emerson's commission to review four volumes of botanical andzoological catalogues in an essay that was published in The Dial as \"Natural History ofMassachusetts\"--to 1862, when he prepared \"Wild Apples,\" a lecture he had delivered duringthe Concord Lyceum's 1859-1860 season, for publication in the Atlantic Monthly after hisdeath. Three other early meditations on natural history and human nature, \"A Winter Walk,\" \"AWalk to Wachusett,\" and \"The Landlord,\" were originally published in 1842 and 1843. Lively,light pieces, they reveal Thoreau's early use of themes and approaches that recur throughouthis work. \"A Yankee in Canada,\" a book-length account of an 1850 trip to Quebec that waspublished in part in 1853, is a fitting companion to Cape Cod and The Maine Woods,Thoreau's other long accounts of explorations of internal as well as external geography. In thelast four essays, \"The Succession of Forest Trees\" (1860), \"Autumnal Tints\" (1862),\"Walking\" (1862), and \"Wild Apples\" (1862), Thoreau describes natural and philosophicalphenomena with a breadth of view and generosity of tone that are characteristic of his maturewriting. In their skillful use of precisely observed details to arrive at universal conclusions,these late essays exemplify Transcendental natural history at its best
This first volume of the Journal covers the early years of Thoreau's rapid intellectual and artistic growth. The Journal reflects his reading, travels, and contacts with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and other Transcendentalists. With characteristic reticence, Thoreau mentions only a few episodes in his emotional history: an ill-fated romance, the death of his elder brother, and an unhappy sojourn on Staten Island, where he tried to write for New York periodicals. Parts of Thoreau's Journal have been published, but always with large omissions of text and with considerable grooming of its erratic manuscript style. This edition presents the entire surviving manuscript in a text preserving Thoreau's words as he originally wrote them.
A prosecutor's misconduct during closing argument at the trial of indictments for rape and other serious crimes, in displaying to the jury a piece of rawhide not part of the evidence, was, in the circumstances, properly remedied by the judge's curative instructions delivered the morning following the objectionable incident and did not require allowance of the defendant's motion for a mistrial. [38-41]
After the sexual episode, the defendant released the victim's bonds and slept. The victim dressed and stole away. She tried to call a friend and, finding him absent, related the incident to the friend's roommate. The next morning the victim asked for help at the Brookline Family Counseling Service and later that day went to Beth Israel Hospital for a physical examination. Dr. Michael Alper, the examining physician, testified that he observed on the victim a black eye, a bruise on the chin, lacerations of the face and wrists and tenderness in the neck muscles. The victim did not report to the police that she had been raped until July 24, 1979.
During his summation, the prosecutor wrapped a piece of rawhide around his hand, held it for a considerable time and threw it on his desk for emphasis. At no time had the rawhide been introduced -- or even offered -- as evidence. So far as appears the rawhide was a stage prop entirely of the prosecutor's devising. Twice defense counsel attempted to object, but the rawhide was outside the trial judge's field of view. As nothing seemed untoward about what the prosecutor was saying, the judge fended off the objections and only after the jury had been excused for the day were the prosecutor's theatrics brought home to the judge by a defense motion for a mistrial. This came as an unpleasant surprise. The judge had taken particular care to warn both counsel before final arguments that they should think about their closings and that they should steer clear of the excesses which have been the subject of so much judicial comment.

the edge. Compare Commonwealth v. Blow, 362 Mass. at 200-201, in which indictments for robbery and breaking and entering at separate times and places (although on the same day) were held improperly joined. However, the fact that the gun was stolen was related to evidence properly in the case, and, to that degree, was not entirely extraneous to the main charge. Unlike Blow, it was here not likely \"that the jury were influenced by the accumulating effect of evidence as to the separate offenses.\" Id. at 201. There was a thread, albeit slender, of connection among the criminal episodes. Mass.R.Crim.P. 9(a) (1), 378 Mass. 859 (1979). 59ce067264
