What books do you recommend?


Judging by your constant misuse of the English language, like then instead of than, I'd recommend a dictionary.

Do you need some water for that burn?

I wasn't having a bad day, and I wasn't being mean. Being mean would have been suggesting a dictionary, thesaurus and English lessons. This was just a bit of humour. I'm sure if Ghostreader had had a problem with it, he'd have said so himself. There's not much point getting worked up on someone else's behalf.

New question: Why do people often misunderstand the dry wit?

Maybe because one man's dry wit is another man's public humiliation, rendering the 'joke' totally unfunny.

Why is there no Like/Not Like button on the Forum posts, so that we can all show our support/lack of support for what has been posted?

Well you could quote what some one has written and show your likeness or unlikeness.If you put the like or unlike option, It wont work , since we all respect each other and we try hard to not to hurt anyone. Sometimes it might happen accidentally, We are matures we could talk and sort that out. I agree that someones dry wit may be humiliation to other. What Andrew wrote might be wrong, what if same thing written in the funny fact about the person thread, we could have laughed at it and moved on and would have posted some more facts.However the dictionary comment might hurt him here, well no one is perfect, even i do more blunders. We should stop dragging this and let Brain talk to Andrew and sort it out.But its good to see friends coming to support keep that up and keep writing.

A new question : How does one get recommended Poem or story? and who decides that?

As I understand, Recommended Reads are given by a single moderator, rather than by the whole moderating team, like with Editor's Picks. My advice, is just to write from the heart and not bother about getting awards. If you write well enough, then awards will come because people will see that you're not merely writing for awards, but for the love of the craft. Or you could bribe someone, I hear Alan (DirtyMartini) likes vodka...

Have you ever done a ouija board?

Oh My. A Ouija Board. Yes as a matter of fact. I recall there was one at my aunt and uncle's lake cottage. Some of the kids were over from next cottage and along with my cousins asked, "Who will Jim marry?" The answer was Evelyn Wastebasket! I still have yet to meet her. Unless that's Talia's real name!

Did you mother ever wash your mouth out with soap?

Quite the contrary. Message boards that do not frown on impoliteness degenerate very quickly.

Hugs, James! You are sweet - and it is not my real name. And I can't remember if my mother ever washed my mouth out with soap. I think it was discussed, but if done, it was only once.


In the area where you live, do you get charged for grocery bags? And if so, do you pay, or bring your own?

I'd need to know what that "something" was first.

Did you ever hide or play under the bed when you were a child?

Funny you should ask. I had a very high bed as a child. It was totally unsafe and would never be allowed under today's standards. There was oodles of room underneath it — and every square inch was utilized for "storage," a habit I carried into adulthood. It's only been within the last two or three years that I cleaned everything out from under the bed, and now I'm a little too big to play there. crybaby

How far do you walk on an average day?

Two miles and what is typically human, I walk the same two miles every day!

My Question is: Can I use a Ouija board to find out what the beautiful Talia Russell's real name is ?

I suppose, but I'd prefer to know exactly where I was going, so I could make preparations.

Do you have a familiar? (A spirit, usually animal, who guides you... That's a very crude explanation, but to explain it fully would take too many pages.)

I don't follow much. Watch Prison Break, its one of my favorite, its already over. Else go for Game of thrones but season 5 is recently concluded so wait for the season 6, till then complete the other seasons. Flash is there, might air in September, not sure but you could vouch for it. Though i might not answered you, since you wanted latest, if found will update.

What did first thing come to you mind when you woke up today morning ?

I kind of enjoy older tv shows around the 90's :P

I do at times enjoy sneezing at time because I can breath again.

I would go and enjoy. Though it's risky but I would take that and go with someone you mentioned. I can't say no to dinner, movie is fine. In Yes man you might have seen how Jim carry meets his love by helping a stranger who almost looked like cannibal. Though, that is not assured in real still a chance.

What strange thing you did recently and why?

Certainly not in Glasgow. I might get stabbed.

Don't you just wish this warm weather would just give over and make way for the cooler days?

Yes I agree, I hardly see users online here. Max I seen was 10 members online. In future it might be used though.

The answer to question - Oh we do want that to happen. Though where I live it's sunny in day and rains in night but other places are still hot. As I read somewhere the scorching temperature will just raise in coming years. But, I wish we had winter through out the year, it's also a problem but would have been better than this summer hotness.

This brings topic "Global warming", in future temperature 40-50 degree centigrade would be normal I think. They might think we lived in cooler era.

So,

What are your thoughts on combating this "Global warming"?
