I went to the Capitol for five days and yes I played golf every one of those days. The first day my father and I drove down from our home in Dallas, but instead of going straight to the hotel I had to sit in on one of his business meetings.

Composing the vast majority of his poems in a one-year time span, Owen found inspiration from his personal experiences fighting in World War I and fellow poets joining in the fight around him. Born in 1893, Owen grew up the oldest of four children, enjoying a particularly close relationship with his mother while his father remained distant. Owen graduated from Shrewsbury Technical School at age eighteen. Afterwards, Owen took numerous odd jobs throughout Europe, seemingly at a loss for his purpose in life.
For over 40 years the life and times of the Australian Bushranger, Ben Hall has held my imagination. My first introduction to the name Ben Hall came about by my father when on a long drive from our home in Queensland to our former Victorian home following my fathers service in Viet Nam, and our first opportunity as a family to visit my grandmothers and the wider family of Uncles, Auntys and Cousins, and to recover my sister who was holidaying at the family 's holiday home at Phillip Island. As for anyone who has taken the long road anywhere, a car ride of such distance could be tiresome, not with my father, who had a great interest in the early history of Australia and as well as a wider interest in world history.

Born in the small town Earle, Arkansas, Moody Jones interest in music started at a very early age when he learned how to play the guitar after his brother bought him a broken guitar for $3, which Moody fixed and started to develop an interest for.
