"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one´s lifetime."

´Golf Links´

The golf links lie so near the mill
That almost every day
The laboring children can look out
And see the men at play.

It’s a long one ... but the ONE for me

“I didn´t give up, I walked away
I had enough of accepting actions that were less than I deserved.
So...
I made a concious choice
To honour myself,
Before complementing another
&
If that´s what; has made you undeniably mad, Than I know, the history of our connection is hidden in the truth of your heart and regardless of your outcome, I have made the right choice for me.”

The real story of the "incredulous" quote is that it was used by our Senior VP of Retail Operations (a pretentious sounding title in itself) in an email...I thought it was a pretentious, over the top sounding phrase, and wondered if he broke out the thesaurus or bounced ideas off his wife at 11 o´clock at night while he was writing the email...

I seized on it, and started getting on the crew about their "comportment", and how it was the height of "incredulity"...

In a joking way of course...

I was mostly ignored, since the crew expects that kind of nonsense from me...

I did have a friend at work who appreciated that kind of thing though, so every time one of the corporates used a 25 cent word in an email, we would christen it "the word of the month", and find ways to work it into even the most mundane, everyday conversations...

That was a funny month... :4:

The Sheep-Thief´s Message

Mr. Pratt, your sheep are very fat,
And we thank you for that;
We have left you the skins to pay your wife´s pins,
And you must thank us for that.

Good one, but it´s not just Americans...

Nobody likes the truth.

It it doesn´t jive with what "you want" then it sucks...

Pretty much babies at heart, we all are...

But not in a good way..
