"I read this aloud to Susan, who informs me that she met Diana Nyad years ago when Susan, a former competitive swimmer herself, lived in Connecticut. Susan allows as how Diana at that time was still a bit "puffed up." That was of course…"

Foolish Monkey commented on Stephen Brassawe's blog post I Believe . . . but I Could Be Wrong
"I think we have to assume we're flawed. Imperfect.  so even if we're gobsmacked with truth, can we recognize what it is? Is my truth (and the cost of it) the same as what it might be for someone on the other side of the world? or…"

Stephen Brassawe commented on Theodora L'Engle Knight's blog post my completely brilliant comments are NOT POSTING and i'm losing what is left of my mind. this steel trap is now an Aluminum Sieve. planet earth 2. and lying.
"Upon checking yesterday I was shocked to find that it has been almost two years since I visited you here. I have since been checking your interim posts to bring myself up to date in a somewhat catch-as-catch-can manner. Your method of titling your…"

Stephen Brassawe commented on Ron Powell's blog post Trump is visiting the National African-American History Museum today...
"Frederick Douglass's portrait holds an honored position above my bar in the Chicken House, along with James Dean. I know of no reason why he should not consult with Mr. Douglass. It might expand his horizons. I could not resist."

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

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.
