What do you think? Los Angeles Considers Eliminating Soda Vending Machines

Los Angeles already has a ban on sodas in school vending machines and cafeterias. Now Councilman Mitchell Englander has proposed putting an end to soda vending machines in Los Angeles parks and libraries, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Supernatural fiction

'Ariana's Curse'

The heaped branches were kindled, and the roar of the flames and sizzle of sap drowned out the sound of all else as the rapt gathering backed away from the raging conflagration to form a six-deep circle. They watched eagerly, as first Ariana’s wet clothing steamed and then ignited.

Twisting and straining, her frantic efforts were ineffectual against the chains that held her pinioned to the green oak stake. Her wailing became a strident inhuman scream as her…

How do we see things?

Bird Droppings June 4, 2012

How do we see things?

When I spend time alone with my granddaughter who is now eighteen months old we communicate in a sort of pointing fingers, hand signs, words, facial gestures and occasionally a pop pop I will show you what I want look as she picks up the item. She is learning much like setting a dry sponge on a table with a puddle of water and it is soaking up. I am amazed each time I see her at how much more she has learned in a week. As I sat…

Past..Present & Future

In the end, we only regret chances we didn't take & mistakes we've all made. The relationships we were too scared to have and the decisions we waited too long to make! There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesn't, who never did and who always will!

A Quote by Cherokee Indian

An old Cherokee Indian was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A battle is raging inside me ... it is a terrible fight between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
