  3. Happy birthday beautiful! 

  4. Today
  5. The person ahead of me in the drive-through this morning paid for my breakfast. :) So I paid for the person behind me's breakfast.  It's small acts of kindness that remind us that people are essentially good.  Pay it forward.

  6. Taking a breather.  Be good to each other.  

  7. I decided to start the day with a poem by John Rice. 

    Enjoy :) 

     

    If ships sailed on the motorway

       and potato crisps were blue,

    if football boots were made of silk

       and a lamp-post wore a shoe.

     

    If motorbikes ran upwards

       and milkfloats really floated,

    if beds were full of dinosaurs 

       and peas were sugar-coated.

     

    If flies wore bomber-jackets

        and eggs laid little chickens,

    if spacemen had a panther each

        and insects studied Dickens.

     

    If babies' prams were motorized

        and you listen to your conscience,

    if your brain was working properly 

        you wouldn't read this nonscience.

      Yesh i queried the spelling of that, but i had to copy the poem exactly as it is in the book i have. I bought it from the author in 1995 and even got it signed. Also note, it is in UK English, don't know if that makes a difference.

      Milkfloats and potato crisps are quite idiosyncratic icons of the British Isles :gikkle:

      It is not often that a cover version of a great song succeeds in matching or even bettering the original, but this did!

      :hug:Take care Ashi...

  16. Peace-out. I need to step away for a while.

  17. Have a Blessed Memorial Day. Remember what it is about, and that is not a Day off and a BBQ.

  18. I'm not dead but very preoccupied, so I've had to stay away from GA. I've put all my stories on hold for this reason (except for The Wardrobe, which can't be edited without changing the title because another story apparently has the same title) and will wake them up one by one when I manage to produce something for them again.
    Once the clusterfuck that is my life calms down again.

    See you then.

      Doc, I hope everything's ok...

  19. On Mercury a day

    lasts 1,408 hours.

    Just like every

    Monday does on

    Earth.

     

    Did you know? That the Great Barrier Reef was discovered by Captain James Cook, when his ship crashed into it. It took seven weeks to repair his badly damaged ship.

      When I worked in retail, I worked just about every holiday. But when I started working in the late ‘70s, stores were closed for the big three holidays: Easter, US Thanksgiving, and Christmas. In the ‘90s, I started working for a bookstore that was located next door to a Tower Records store and we got enough business on Easter that we stayed open on subsequent Easters. None of my employers ever opened on US Thanksgiving or Christmas and major retailers are beginning to realize it isn’t cost-effective. (Grocery stores, convenience stores, and gas stations, of course, have long been open for obvious reasons.)

       

      I refuse to shop on any of those days – retail workers deserve time off with their families. Overtime is not adequate compensation for the time lost with your loved ones. Customers are never grateful for the sacrifices made by lowly hourly workers who cannot afford to lose their jobs by refusing to work on those days.

  20. Just noticed my Demon story has had 666 views - how appropriate. :gikkle:

      I've had that problem when I use my laptop. It went on for a while then stopped. Fingers crossed it will for you too, LBO.

      I think both chapters will significantly impact the story! They aren't just fillers
