By Kamakshi TandonFri Jan 27, 2006 2:29 PM ET TORONTO (Reuters) – When it comes to romance, women prefer someone who tickles their funny bone while men opt for those who catch their eye, according to an international survey released on Wednesday. The survey, conducted in 16 countries by Canadian romance publisher Harlequin Enterprises, asked[…]
Commondreams.org and projectcensored.org teamed up recently to publish online a list of “news stories” that were supposedly censored (or left out of the mainstream media) during the 2005 calendar year. They have a “Top Ten” list and then some other stories that fill out a “Top 25.” (Click here for the list and brief descriptions[…]

“Examinations, sir, are pure humbug from beginning to end. If a man is a gentleman, he knows quite enough, and if he is not a gentleman, whatever he knows is bad for him.” –Oscar Wilde, “The Picture of Dorian Gray”
Of course, it was Popular Mechanics and Popular Science who predicted in the 1960s that we’d all have flying cars by the 1980s. They were wrong about that, so they may be wrong about the following ideas, too. But it’s a little easier to predict one year in advance than 20 years… Here are some[…]
(Note to my readers: I don’t really plan these posts. The ideas just pop into my head. It’s obvious, isn’t it?) I don’t really care what you call “the holidays.” I don’t care if you call it Christmas, Xmas, holidays, Chanukah, or that other one that I can’t remember right now. I am a little[…]
I think AC-DC said it best: “It’s a long way to the top, if you wanna rock ‘n’ roll.” The road to the Oklahoma high school playoffs has been a rough one for the Sasakwa Vikings. Just three years ago, they were contemplating their chances of breaking the state’s longest losing streak — 39 consecutive[…]
It’s just plain wrong for a legitimate, law-abiding citizen to fear his own government. Yet I fear U.S. Senator Bill Frist (and anyone who agrees with him). The man (our Senate Majority Leader) said today that he’s less concerned about illegal government operations than he is about prosecuting the people who point out these flaws[…]

Okay, I’ll admit it; bad manners are a pet peeve of mine. But I don’t mean stupid manners like using fork #3 for a certain part of the meal, because that makes no sense. But to me, it’s bad manners to stand only a few inches away from someone while talking to them, especially if[…]

Here’s another song that reminds me of Marline. However, I had to change one word. I’d actually changed this word in my head, many years before I met Marline. The word is “bluest.” The reason I changed it is because it never made sense. “Bluest skies” don’t think of rain. Duh. Blue skies think of[…]
My cousin Evan let me a read one of his newest poems recently. I thought it was worth sharing with all of you. Love Is Where You Find ItBy: Evan PierceOct. 1, 2005 Love is a flower In between the slabs Of a sidewalk Love is a helicopter When you’re stranded On a rooftop Love[…]
Usually, I really love StatCounter (www.statcounter.com). It provides a really nice counter tool so I can see how many hits I’ve had over the last several days/weeks. It also shows me which friends and family members are stopping by to visit, as well as the visitors who stop by on accident, sometimes from all over[…]
“It’s a good thing when a man is different from your image of him. It shows he isn’t a type. If he were, it would be the end of him as a man. But if you can’t place him in a category, it means that at least a part of him is what a human[…]
“It is usually taken for granted that you dream of something that has made a particularly strong impression on you during the day, but it seems to me it’s just the contrary… Often it’s something you paid no attention to at the time — a vague thought that you didn’t bother to think out to[…]
Here’s a subject I will almost never attempt to tackle, whether verbally or in print, but it’s something I must mention. And mark these words carefully: I am a human being. This is the race/species to which I belong. I have always failed to understand it any other way. By the same token, you are[…]
Well! I must thank everyone who sent me positive comments on my photo (some by email, and some as comments on this site.) Thank you. I had no idea. It was meant to be an “ambiance” photo to go along with the post. And, as it always does, Life begins to throw the “change-up.” Not[…]
Old photographs are certainly a joy to observe, but tonight I was reminded that in many respects, moving pictures are better than still ones. While a still photo may capture a “moment” or an instant in time, usually a posed moment, the motion picture can capture an entire afternoon, or an activity from beginning to[…]
