New York Times Telling the Truth About Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump

Jennifer Stewart

David Leonhardt of the New York Times recently sent out an email to subscribers introducing himself and asking what we wanted to read, even providing an email address. I replied. "I've been reading the NYT every morning with my breakfast for years. Up until a couple of weeks ago I was ready to ditch my subscription; disillusioned with all the irresponsible attention given to Trump, sick to death of headlines that...



The Rowboat (Part 2: Safe at Home)

Jack H. Schick

It was Saturday. I can't remember if I dreamed about our rowboat or Dead-eye that night, but I slept late. Dan was already in the living room eating a big bowl of Trix and watching the Chief Halftown Show when I got up. He liked when he got up before me because I was older and made us watch what I wanted to on TV. We pretty much liked the same shows, though, at least until Fury , "stories of a boy and his horse," came...

Arlene Wright-Correll

Once Upon a Catch a Fairy Tail Tea Story© By Arlene Wright-Correll Once upon a time, many years ago, after a long day’s work at Home Farm Herbery , I decided to sit on the patio and have a cup of tea as the evening faded into darkness. As I looked out over gardens and ponds I started to notice thousands and thousands of blinking light that at first I thought was fireflies. However,...


THE NOW... or here... within an Internal Rhyme...

Robin Brown

It no longer feels as though I am barred in regard to things too complicated or things too hard. I can now bring up topics which I stand side by side... to create... without the need to dictate my own fate in the understanding of how to relate all debate... And especially concerning the unforeseen around my neck... which I now wear with respect... to the understanding that I am... as I advocate ... ALL ... or...

A lot of people are getting married everyday around the globe while a lot of people are getting divorced almost at the same time in proportion. It has become one of those "make believe" that, that is the single most important thing which is happening at this very moment to the particular people on the planet, be it getting married or getting divorced, the motive for the project is in full force to get it done in due time. ..

She didn't like him from the very beginning. He wanted to have his room's striking plate repaired, as someone had taken away the upper screw of it. She said he had to put it in writing. He asked her for some paper. She gave it to him, but demanded that he would go to the table to write it. The note had only one sentence, so he said that he could do it at the window. She, quite of a sudden, protested rigorously with some...


Words Left Unspoken Can Help In Every Relationship

Susan Thom

Most of us want our feelings heard and respected. Everyone wants to feel appreciated. We want to feel good about ourselves so when we feel we are not being heard or respected we tend to want to lose our temper. Sometimes this temper is filled with animosity and anger, even though you may love the other person. However, due to the fact that we are human, we make mistakes and if we’re lucky, we’ll have some outside support in.


Happy Universal Halloween-

Ella Camp

Halloween is the time of the year that we've designated to tip our hats to the darker side of life, because we know it is there. And we fear it. Despite all our efforts to bury it in the light of day, we must at times, acknowledge it's existence. We celebrate our defiance of it in the dark of night; where we think it belongs, and where we wish it would stay, but alas, it's like trying to contain a basket of vipers, which.



How Gene Became Willy Wonka

Neil Killion

The recent death of much-loved actor Gene Wilder has received considerable media coverage. In line with my post on Muhammad Ali, in which I displayed an incredible 20 out of 20 recently-departed celebrity profiles with a verifiable match to 'Life Cycles Theory' , I have decided to once again put myself to the 'blind test' of analysing the life and career of Gene. I have only two questions to try to answer initially:-.

A Strange Age

Sara O'Rourke

To write it takes an idea, usually bright and full of conviction at the time, or at least the scent of your getting closer to something enlightening, which you find as you unravel its disguise as you tap at your keyboard. I used to be full of ideas, full of 'first-time' feelings and concerns that felt too important not to document. It is only now, perhaps, slowly accepting that I will soon be approaching 'middle-age',...
