Now the stone house on the lake front is finished and the

     workmen are beginning the fence.

The palings are made of iron bars with steel points that

     can stab the life out of any man who falls on them.

As a fence, it is a masterpiece, and will shut off the rabble

     and all vagabonds and hungry men and all wandering

     children looking for a place to play.

Passing through the bars and over the steel points will go

     nothing except Death and the Rain and To-morrow.

I wonder how often this vtengite plays out for the bride/groom on that most cherished of days? I think you were lucky, Nancy. At least you knew before the ceremony. I think it's odd that many of us never consider that someone we know has gone through this.Thanks for telling of the experience so well and showing us what a gentle lady you are.Me? I would have decked him. That would have been my answer.

There is so much Oracle-related information to keep up with that I often arcpepiate someone saying - 'Do you know you can do x in 10g?'Well, maybe Doug and I need to discuss this elsewhere, because I don't want to hijack someone else's blog... but what Doug's talking about there is not a 1 minute tip. He's talking about being pointed in the right direction for further research. There's a difference: a tip claims to encapsulate a "truth" within itself. General guidance to investigate X, Y or Z isn't a "tip" in that league.Case in point: I didn't know only lower-version RMAN executables can be run against a higher version of the database. (That is, 10gR1 RMAN can backup a 10gR2 database, but 10gR2 RMAN cannot backup a 10gR1 database). I should have known it, because it's not new. But I asked on the Dizwell Forum, and got a one-word answer. Not even a 1-minute answer, mind! Just one word... a word which was a Metalink document number, and thus all the insight on the matter you could ask for was contained within that one word.But that doesn't make '76337.1' (or whatever) a tip, does it? It makes it a correction, a note pointing out my error, a reference to a store of knowledge. But a little "nugget" of tip-like information. Nah.And the same goes for someone telling you feature A, B and C should be looked into. I'm all for that. Looking into things is what proper research is all about, after all. But I am completely against the idea that you can 'nuggetise' what feature A is all about, let alone how to employ it, in a one-minute brain fart.Same problems with Arup's example. if you sit there thinking that setting AUDIT_TRAIL=DB switches on auditing, you don't understand auditing. If you understood it, you wouldn't be surprised that setting audit options has to come into the picture. Which is not to say a reminder of these things isn't useful to those of us prone to forget stuff, but again: you can't miss out the issue of intent here. If your intent is to jog memories, then brain-fart away! All very useful, no doubt. But if your intent is to try and encapsulate a nugget of knowledge, and to impart that knowledge to others for the first time, then stop it immediately, because that's not a good thing to be doing (IMHO, of course).There's a very fine dividing line between 1 minute nuggets and 'silver bullets', and I've had enough of the latter and those who dispense them to last me a lifetime! x x

I'm SorryI couldn't drink the meeimors to oblivionI couldn't blink without seeing your faceI couldn't walk without falling off the wagonI couldn't talk without losing my placeI couldn't think of anything else to sayI couldn't think of what else to doI couldn't save you from all of your enemiesWhen the enemy you fought was youI couldn't catch you, keep you from fallingI couldn't catch the bullet in my handI couldn't forget the sound of the hammer-fallI couldn't bury my head in the sandI couldn't forgive you for taking your life awayCouldn't forgive me for letting you goAnd I don't want to learn to live with itAs the bottles on the table will showI couldn't make sense of the senselessI couldn't ransom the life that you stoleI didn't have any pieces left to pick upThe family picture will always have a holeNow I sit here with all of the lights offAs the scene plays over in my mindIf only I'd done something differentBut time's a tape you just can't rewind

The poem reflects two perspectives, one that is the metaphorical and emotional, and the other that is more historical and physical. The emotional one is when the fence is imagined as an obstacle or barrier that we create to keep away things that are bad, in life. But at the same time, we are keeping away the good things, like children and positive relationships with others. Also, even if we put up a fence it does not mean that we can keep every problem out. We will eventually have to face the inevitable--like death, rain (depression) and \"tomorrow\".
The other perspective is that we can compare the \"fence\" that keeps people both \"in\" and \"out\" to a historical event such as the Holocaust, when Jews were kept \"in\" meaning hidden/killed and were not allowed \"out\" meaning--freedom. Also, we can compare the poem to a Communist/Communism idea, as well as any example where the poor people were kept out of equality (to compare to the fact that the hungry men cannot enter the house).
Simply, the theme of the poem is that no matter what barriers we create, in order to avoid something, (in the poem\'s literal case -- it was the rest of civilization) -- we cannot escape the inevitable.

This poem is about a physical barrier that isolates the individual who has ordered its construction. I see it as a metaphor for the condition of the human heart; the building is referred to as \"stone\" connoting cruelty, and the fence is a metaphor for barriers we put up around ourselves preventing relationships.

I was taught that it was about a rich guy alienating the poor/homless away. Rabble=Poor, Vagabonds=Homeless, and no physical beings passes through the fence but the elements... or something like that along the lines.
