Introduction My priority for Blogden is to catalogue the lasting influence of Ogden Nash's poems on our contemporary world. Contact me: john @ ogdennash dot org.
Interests I enjoy discussing 'what if's' and reading the diverse body of work of the highly prolific F.O.N. My wife and I have three highly energetic kids and an ancient plumbing system in our house which faithfully delivers "a leak a week." I like stories of discovery new scientific ideas, and entrepreneurship. Favorite 'Random Question': If not now, when? If not here, where? If not you, who?
Favorite Books Historical non-fiction that read like novels such as Shorto's 'The Island at the Center of the World', Swanson's 'Manhunt', Cunningham's 'The Uncertain Revolution', Fleming's "The Forgotten Victory", Crawford's 'Mannahatta', McCullough's ' John Adams' and Philbrick's 'Mayflower'. I also enjoy the works of Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman and Longfellow
