she’d been drinking too much egg nog
and we begged her not to go
but she forgot her medication
and she staggered out the door into the snow
when we found her the Christmas morning
at the scene of the attack
she had hoofprints on her fore head
and incriminating Clause marks on her back
Less Than Jake, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
I’m going to hold of on posting very much for the next week and change. Partly, because I’m working a pretty heavy load for the next week, and partly because I know a lot of people will not be around for reading and discussing on the net so much.
With that in mind, I was looking at my stats the other day and discovered several articles that seem to have gotten only minimal attention, yet I felt that they had something important to say. So we’ll throw those up here and see if anyone else agrees 🙂
One the most communal human behaviors is cooking. Yet in this modern world, many people have given up this art as lost, as too time consuming, as too hard. So the question arises: who will teach future generations to cook?
A friend of mine asks, without knowing of my writing, or passion, on the subject: It’s amazes me more and more what honest communication can do. What puzzles me is why it’s not our natural default.
If we are to build new communities, how do we do so with people that have learned, all their lives, that selfishness is the only way to get ahead in this world?
The great water debate: plastic bottles and the three R’s.
