Okay… not so much rules, definitely not laws. Principles in name only. But there are some truisms that stand the test of time.
You’ve got this. Right?
Like elephants, the Internet never forgets. Whose fault is that? And should you be bothered?
A slightly philosophical tale involving floss. Yes, really.
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune are starting to get a bit much now, actually.
We lost two very different practitioners this month.

right after Bonnie gets back.

so many fishies – but no-one for me…
I’m thinking of thinking of hooking a love,
soon after supper is done.
