Here are a few links to Mammoth websites and favorite poetry.

  • "Checklist for Aging" - A Workbook for Caregiving by Woolly Warren Wolfe.   Be a more effective caregiver.  This book has more than 300 pages of highly informative text covering problems faced by caregivers.

  • Cutting through spiritual and political confusion since 1976   by Woolly Charles Buckman Ellis The stand is this:  the time between now and my death has already been counted, the days a known quantity, though concealed.  The space between home and the cities requires care in the use of travel, travel I choose to devote mainly to art and friends.  Therefore, I will, even more than I have in the past, frame my work projects as matters for the student, the scholar and devote time to them in the measured and consistent way I know well.  At some point I will turn that work over to the poet for creation of manuscripts:  essays, poems, books.  The monk's role will be to keep my spirit steady and refreshed, in contact always with the geist as it interacts with my Self. In the overall I place family first and the scholar's labor second, the monk's rhythm will define my days, and the poet's sensibility my creations.

  • Woolly Mammoth    Woolly Mammoths (scientific name Mammuthus primigenius) are extinct herbivorous mammals that had long, dense, dark black hair and underfur, long, curved tusks, a fatty hump, a long proboscis (nose), and large ears. They lived in the tundras of Asia, Europe, and North America. They lived from the Pleistocene to the early Holocene epoch (about 10,000 years ago), millions of years after the dinosaurs went extinct. They are closely related to modern-day Indian elephants. They were about 11.5 feet (3.5 m) long, 9.5 feet (2.9 m) tall at the shoulder and weighed about 3 tons (2.75 tonnes). The tusks were used for protection, in interspecies dominance, and for digging in the snow of the ice ages for grass and other food. Much of our knowledge of mammoths is from cave drawings found in France and Spain and from mummified mammoths found in Siberian ice! (Classification: Family Elephantidae)

  • Great Woolly Mammoth Jokes   Imagine a place unchanged since the end of the Great Ice Age. A place where the mighty Woolly Mammoth might still roam!

  • The Dwelling In The Woods was designed to provide a year round Hermitage experience.  As a guest at The Dwelling you had the opportunity to live alone in a simple private Hermitage omfortably surrounded by other Hermitages in the woods or meadows.  It is now the Shire in the Woods.

  • Blue Cloud Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery, was founded in 1950 by St. Meinrad Archabbey in Indiana. The peaceful and beautiful rural surroundings of NE South Dakota are conducive to a monastic life of prayer. The first monks moved to Marvin, SD in the early 1950's and lived in a small farm house on newly acquired land. Over the years, the monks themselves constructed what is now Abbey of the Hills retreat location.

  • Woolly Mammoths: Evidence of Catastrophe?  Preservation of the mammoth remains was somewhat different than has been imagined by the uninformed. The mammoths were 'mummified', a process that is quite easily done in a cold environment.
