1139 – Conon of Naso, Basilian abbot (d. 1236)
Conon (3 June 1139 – 28 March 1236) was a Basilian abbot at Naso, Sicily.

Religious life

A famous tale from the life of Conon tells that he made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and whilst there he received a vision. In this vision, Conon witnessed a priest he knew being suffocated by a snake. Having returning from the Holy Land, he went directly to this priest and told him what he had seen. The priest at once confessed to Conon that he was taking church funds and keeping them for himself. Conon then persuaded his fellow priest to change his ways. Another tale tells of how Conon healed a Sicilian boy of his apoplexy.

Legacy and veneration
In 1571, Naso was in the midst of a dire famine. The people of the city prayed for the intercession of Conon, their patron. Conon then appeared to a ship captain, who brought grain to Naso, and thus the people of Naso survived the famine.

This is just beautiful lyrics.

Here is a lyrics of a Cookie song
(Verse 1) In a world of wonder, where dreams take flight, There’s a friend so special, a beacon of light. Budgie Cookie, with feathers so bright, A loving companion, soaring day and night.

(Chorus) Oh, Budgie Cookie, you bring joy to our days, With your wings of freedom, you show us the way. Through the endless sky, you dance and you play, Our precious friend, we’ll never let you stray.

(Verse 2) Your tiny beak and your gentle voice, Filling our hearts with a melodious choice. You perch on our shoulders, a colorful display, In your presence, worries simply fade away.

(Chorus) Oh, Budgie Cookie, you bring joy to our days, With your wings of freedom, you show us the way. Through the endless sky, you dance and you play, Our precious friend, we’ll never let you stray.

(Bridge) Together we’ll soar, high above the land, In harmony, our friendship will forever stand. Through sunny skies and clouds so grand, Budgie Cookie, we’ll journey hand in hand.

(Verse 3) You teach us to embrace the winds of change, To spread our wings, to reach for the range. With each graceful flight, our spirits arise, In the boundless sky, we find paradise.

(Chorus) Oh, Budgie Cookie, you bring joy to our days, With your wings of freedom, you show us the way. Through the endless sky, you dance and you play, Our precious friend, we’ll never let you stray.

(Outro) Budgie Cookie, our loving friend so true, We’ll cherish the moments we’ve spent with you. Fly high, dear budgie, in the heavens above, Forever grateful for your friendship and love.

James Patterson was born March 22, 1947, in Newburg, New York. He is a bestselling author who is mainly known for mysteries and thrillers, but he has also written historical fiction, romance, nonfiction, young adult fiction, middle grade, and picture books. He’s won many awards, including National Book Foundation’s 2015 Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community, American Library Association “Teens Top Ten” Pick, and Children’s Choice Book Awards.

Patterson desires to prove with his writing “that there is no such thing as a person who doesn’t like to read, only people who haven’t found the right book.” He’s backed up his mission by giving over a million books to school children, over $40 million to support education, and over 5,000 college scholarships to teachers.

Here is a list of James Patterson’s books, first by series, then the standalone books in each genre.

742 – Emperor Dezong of Tang (d. 805)
Emperor Dezong of Tang (27 May 742[2] – 25 February 805),[3] personal name Li Kuo, was an emperor of the Chinese Tang dynasty and the oldest son of Emperor Daizong. His reign of 26 years was the third longest in the Tang dynasty (surpassed only by Emperor Xuanzong and Emperor Gaozong). Emperor Dezong started out as a diligent and frugal emperor and he tried to reform the governmental finances by introducing new tax laws. His attempts to destroy the powerful regional warlords and the subsequent mismanagement of those campaigns, however, resulted in a number of rebellions that nearly destroyed him and the Tang dynasty. After those events, he dealt cautiously with the regional governors, causing warlordism to become unchecked, and his trust of eunuchs caused the eunuchs’ power to rise greatly. He was also known for his paranoia about officials’ wielding power, and late in his reign, he did not grant much authority to his chancellors.

451 – Battle of Avarayr between Armenian rebels and the Sasanian Empire takes place. The Sasanids defeat the Armenians militarily but guarantee them freedom to openly practice Christianity.[2]
The Battle of Avarayr (Armenian: Ավարայրի ճակատամարտ Avarayri čakatamart) was fought on 2 June 451 on the Avarayr Plain in Vaspurakan between a Christian Armenian army under Vardan Mamikonian and Sassanid Persia. It is considered one of the first battles in defense of the Christian faith.[8] Although the Persians were victorious on the battlefield, it was a pyrrhic victory as Avarayr paved the way to the Nvarsak Treaty of 484, which affirmed Armenia’s right to practise Christianity freely.[4][5]

The battle is seen as one of the most significant events in Armenian history.[9] The commander of the Armenian forces, Vardan Mamikonian, is considered a national hero and has been canonized by the Armenian Apostolic Church.[10][11]

Servius Tullius was the legendary sixth king of Rome, and the second of its Etruscan dynasty. He reigned from 578 to 535 BC.[1] Roman and Greek sources describe his servile origins and later marriage to a daughter of Lucius Tarquinius Priscus, Rome’s first Etruscan king, who was assassinated in 579 BC. The constitutional basis for his accession is unclear; he is variously described as the first Roman king to accede without election by the Senate, having gained the throne by popular and royal support; and as the first to be elected by the Senate alone, with support of the reigning queen but without recourse to a popular vote.[2]

Welcome to the Stump the Bookseller blog!

Stump the Bookseller is a service offered by Loganberry Books to reconnect people to the books they love but can’t quite remember. In brief (for more detailed information see our About page), people can post their memories here, and the hivemind goes to work. After all, the collective mind of bibliophiles, readers, parents and librarians around the world is much better than just a few of us thinking. Together with these wonderful Stumper Magicians, we have a nearly 50% success rate in finding these long lost but treasured books. The more concrete the book description, the better the success rate, of course. It is a labor of love to keep it going, and there is a modest fee. Please see the How To page to find price information and details on how to submit your Book Stumper and payment.

Thanks to everyone involved to keep this forum going: our blogging team, the well-read Stumper Magicians, the many referrals, and of course to everyone who fondly remembers the wonder of books from their childhood and wants to share or revisit that wonder. Isn’t it amazing, the magic of a book?

On This Day

919 – The nobles of Franconia and Saxony elect Henry the Fowler at the Imperial Diet in Fritzlar as king of the East Frankish Kingdom.
East Francia (Medieval Latin: Francia orientalis) or the Kingdom of the East Franks (Regnum Francorum orientalium) was a successor state of Charlemagne’s empire ruled by the Carolingian dynasty until 911. It was created through the Treaty of Verdun (843) which divided the former empire into three kingdoms.[a]

The east–west division with the Treaty of Verdun in 843, enforced by the Germanic-Latin language split, “gradually hardened into the establishment of separate kingdoms”,[1] with East Francia becoming (or being) the Kingdom of Germany[b] and West Francia becoming the Kingdom of France.[2][3]

Born On This Day

15 BC – Germanicus, Roman general (d. 19)
Germanicus Julius Caesar (24 May 15 BC – 10 October AD 19) was an ancient Roman general and politician most famously known for his campaigns in Germania. The son of Nero Claudius Drusus and Antonia the Younger, Germanicus was born into an influential branch of the patrician gens Claudia. The agnomen Germanicus was added to his full name in 9 BC when it was posthumously awarded to his father in honor of his victories in Germania. In AD 4 he was adopted by his paternal uncle Tiberius, who succeeded Augustus as Roman emperor a decade later. As a result, Germanicus became an official member of the gens Julia, another prominent family, to which he was related on his mother’s side. His connection to the Julii Caesares was further consolidated through a marriage between him and Agrippina the Elder, a granddaughter of Augustus. He was also the father of Caligula, the maternal grandfather of Nero, and the older brother of Claudius.

On This Day

996 – Sixteen-year-old Otto III is crowned Holy Roman Emperor.[2]
Otto III (June/July 980 – 23 January 1002) was Holy Roman Emperor from 996 until his death in 1002. A member of the Ottonian dynasty, Otto III was the only son of the Emperor Otto II and his wife Theophanu.

Otto III was crowned as King of Germany in 983 at the age of three, shortly after his father’s death in Southern Italy while campaigning against the Byzantine Empire and the Emirate of Sicily. Though the nominal ruler of Germany, Otto III’s minor status ensured his various regents held power over the Empire. His cousin Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, initially claimed regency over the young king and attempted to seize the throne for himself in 984. When his rebellion failed to gain the support of Germany’s aristocracy, Henry II was forced to abandon his claims to the throne and to allow Otto III’s mother Theophanu to serve as regent until her death in 991. Otto III was then still a child, so his grandmother, Adelaide of Italy, served as regent until 994.

He is believed to have been the avatar of Nandaka, the sword of Shree Hari Vishnu. He is widely regarded as the Andhra Pada kavitā Pitāmaha (Grandfather of Telugu song-writing).[1]
