      That's nothing--in the 10th Grade, I heard a little guy riding on the bus (he was maybe 6 or 7) accidentally drop the F-word. :lmao::rofl:

      This generation got it so bad. I haven't used a F-word in my life other than to explain it to some the high-school guys here in our colony.

      I very rarely swear, whenever i go to i feel as if my mom is watching over my shoulder waiting to clip me round the ear.  Of course if something angers me enought I will, but it takes a fair bit. 

      These days I think bad language is tolerated too much, both on the streets and on tv, kids are just repeating what they hear...

  7. Today is National Moon Day

     

    National Moon Day is observed annually on July 20 and commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969.   NASA reported the moon landing as being “…the single greatest technological achievement of all time.”

     

    Today is also National Lollipop Day and National Pennsylvania Day.

      Posted, Sir.

       

      I really struggled on how I'd present this, in the end I decided to go with individual chapters for each memory.

  12. Wherein I might just get a tad upset about politics... Please read, please share if you think it's a worthy read.

      Yes. Firstly, we must support candidates who don't have phobias about helping refugees. Second, we can look for agencies and NGO's which will help - probably discreetly, as they may have to operate in semi shadows.

      I wonder if there's a way for me to lend some sort of support to such an agency?

      I am. Just organizing my thoughts on paper first. Old fashioned like that!  Lol. 

  15. Yesterday
  16. Tony and Geoff re-booted. The two characters from some of my prompt responses will have their own story, Soul Music, which will start at the beginning of their relationship. The chapters will still be driven by prompts, and those already posted will be taken down, revised, and re-posted at the appropriate time. The first chapter Overtures will post soon.  :).

  19. Booked my son's flight to Ireland today.  It's amazing how much one thing can make you both happy and sad at the same time.

      Change of plans. Morgan decided on Mexican food tonight. Mmmm....quesadillas on white flour tortillas with chorizo sausage, minced chiles, and four kinds of Queso: Fresco, Asadero, Cotija and Manchego. All hand-grated/crumbled, not pre-shredded. Yummy! :wub: (Hey, chorizo is a sausage, right?) :P

      It is, and I think that would count. Though, the Fleetwood Mac did sound good.

  23. I added another poem. This one's a bit different than my usual fare though. Hope you enjoy.

  24. Chapter 3: of my poetic story has been posted. It is now waiting in the queue for approval. Spoiler alert this one should have you think a lot more deeply about yourself and life.
