Where Do Suicides Go?

We shall now create a typical example of what happens to a person who commits suicide for one reason or the other. It does not actually matter the cause, but the results are similar. Let us take a case of a jilted lover. In her opinion, life without her man is empty. After several blackmail […]

A Bug on the Plate Is Worth How Much?

Did you ever have a smile on your face that no matter what you did you could not wipe it off? Well, that is quite a regular occurrence with me. But this past week was a “smile-on-the-face” to beat all “smiles-on-the-face.” My only regret is that I did not do a Selfie. It all began […]

Oh, Dem Golden Tones Of Silence

Wishing Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

The last several months have been rather busy with hardly a break anywhere. Sometimes the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I get so busy we forget about the necessity of taking a break every now and then. Soon one day becomes just like the last day. And tomorrow? Will be just like today. We […]

Can I Get An Amen?

An interesting aspect to people is their proclivity toward hypocrisy. By that I mean we say one thing but we really do not mean it or it does not really apply to us personally. I was complaining about this to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage this past week. “Why is it,” I said most […]
