"Interesting piece on a part of the city I am unfamiliar with. I have known two different bar owners in my life who were themselves dry for an extended period of years. Both owned Irish pub-like places, and both eventually caved and started drinking…"

"This reminds me of another perverse calculation done some years ago. Cannot remember who did it. That calculation purported to show that smoking results in a net savings to society as a result of the shortened life span of smokers."

"Experiences such as this can lead one to suspect that one is not really well-equipped mentally to function in this world at a basic level. So many distractions. You may have inherited the problem."

A Bit More

I like nothing more in the world than sitting on my ass doing nothing. And it's not my fault. I have this attitude because I happen to have an amazingly comfortable ass. It may not look like much, but if you could sit on this baby for two minutes, you'd realize that getting off this ass would be a crime against nature. --Lori Chapman

It sits about eight miles downriver in the unincorporated village of Waubeek, population somewhere between 75 and 85 depending on who’s home. It is to be found on some maps and…

The Power of Prayer

Posted on March 6, 2017 at 11:30am 17 Comments

Hi Stephen, como estas? Yes, I am here too. I thought I would join the exodus here and I must say, though I still am learning the ropes here, it does operate and load much quicker than Open Salon.

I am on Word Press also. My Blogger account has been giving me a lot of trouble so I am cruising the blog hosts.

Stephen--

I'm sort of like the last kid in high school to get bell-bottoms, as I've been watching the out-migration from OpenS but not joining.  Yesterday was rock bottom at the site.
