    Great Lyrics

    Nothing Ever Happens - Del Amitri Post office clerks put up signs saying position closed And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats Janitors padlock the gates For security guards to patrol And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink While the married ones turn on a...

    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    I am yet to recover from my Indiana Jones disappointment. :sad: sparkchaser - Last Crusade followed by Raiders of the Lost Ark are my favourite Indy movies. I didn't care much for Temple of Doom (which technically is the prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark), but the Crystal Skull...*sob*...

    Punctuation help on a creative writing piece.

    Thank you everyone for your input. :) A2R - All except one in my writing circle picked up my erroneous 'sort/sought' when I submitted my effort. Thanks for pointing it out, corrections, advice and constructive criticism is always appreciated. Polly - I did leave in the 'labyrinth' bit as I had...

    What's the most misspelled word?

I know I checked the spelling (mine is in Latin), font size, and font before the one I have on my inner forearm was inked. Dumbtionary for those who are somewhat challenged (or...

    Grand photos, Polly. I love 'em! The way the structure of the bridge gives the photos such perspective and draws the viewer in is wonderful. :)

    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Tonight, I lost my faith in Indiana Jones. It broke my heart. It really did. But I couldn't blame Indy. I can't blame the character; it wasn't his fault. He didn't choose this adventure, and he certainly didn't write the tale. So it's not him. I'm not sure who to blame. Whilst...

    do you keep track of the books you read?

    I have a notebook dedicated purely to my reading pursuits. My 'have read', 'to read', 'to purchase', and what books I own and are nestled snugly on my bookshelves in my library/study.

    Splendid, Gilgamesh! So much easy to get a view of all that sumptuous corn without all the distracting stuff. :) And, thank you, the front yard view is even better. :)

    Boredom Attacks

    An intriguing piece of writing that most certainly piques the readers interest. :) Once again...just the spelling.

    The Art of Improvision

    An exquisite piece, A2R! Just be mindful of your spelling--i.e. devine/divine, expell/expel, recieved/received, decieved/deceived. Putting all writing through a spellchecker is a beneficial undertaking.

    Do you have a newspaper subscription?

    I did have a subscription to one of the lead newspapers here (Oz), the Herald Sun, until this past Monday. I found the paper becoming more and more biased in regards to its political leanings...I've opted to stay with a more balanced news view by perusing different newspapers available online.
