  1. Today
  2. Glad to oblige, have a look at:
  3. This is a truly mesmerizing tale, with a story wrapped inside a story. Wonderfully crafted, it leaves me wanting only a video of the whole process Mr. Timpson guides Rick through! Thank you.
  4. This was an enchanting read. The dialogue, the descriptions, the emotions, and how it all tied together. Just an excellent story.
  5. A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. “Human beings are the only animals that stutter,” she says. Little Johnny raises his hand. “I had a kitty-cat who stuttered,” he volunteered. The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked young Johnny to describe the incident. “Well,” he began, “I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard! “That must’ve been scary,” said the teacher. “It sure was!” said Johnny. “My kitty raised his back, went ‘Fffff, Fffff, Fffff’… and before he could say “F*ck off”, the Rottweiler ate him!”
  6. Yesterday
  7. I'm still troubled by all the destroyed paintings -- those can't be replaced. R
  8. Wonderful story, which is not surprising as that's what Nigel writes. This one will keep you entertained and engaged all the way from the first sentence to the last. Highly recommended. C
  9. I keep going back and reading it again and again, it is so good. Though it is costing me a fortune in tissues.
  10. This is heartbreaking.
  11. I am impressed with how David is taking charge, both of himself and of the outcome.
  12. Link fixed in previous post. Sorry.
  13. Chapter 11: Ah, good things come to those who wait patiently—and even to those of us who react before we see where the author is taking us. I should have trusted Cole more. I like the way everything seemed to come together in Chapter 11.
  14. I like most of what Nigel has written, but this is one of his best, IMO. The first time I read it, I missed a lot of stuff; on subsequent passes, I kept discovering new gems. Bravo!
  15. Luckily chapter 11 is posted on Codey's World as the link from the main site does not work. UPDATE: Link is working now. Before there was an error message. R
  16. Someone in California, where juvenile gay-conversion therapy is illegal, with no religious exception, could be taken by his/her parents to Nevada, where there is a religious exception to their new gay-conversion therapy law, and once there the boy/girl could be subjected to gay-conversion therapy. Colin
  17. The link takes me to a Blog for birdtales, someone in the Netherlands with the most current post being in 2004. Couldn't find 'articles plus anciens' or anything in French. Colin
  18. The rule every parent should instill in their children is NEVER, under ANY circumstances, answer questions asked by a policeman or a campus officer, or by any other person when a policeman or a campus officer is present, until one of their parents is contacted and arrives and is present during the interrogation. Colin
  19. Lightning in a Jar ~ Chapter 11 of a Novel by Cole Parker. David's at loose ends this summer and likes it that way, hoping to goof off until school starts in the fall. With his mom pushing, it doesn’t work out that way, however. No More Tears ~ A Short Story by Grant Bentley. Keon assumes he’ll be disowned by everyone that matters to him if they find out he’s gay; but then again, no one has ever said he was all that bright. Featured stories are from our archive and we think you'll enjoy reading them again — or for the first time. One Two Three We’re Out ~ A Short Story by Colin Kelly. Mike is a freshman at Edison High. He’s being pressured by his friends and his family to go to the Homecoming Dance. That’s fine except he will have to ask a girl to be his date.

  20. Last week
  21. I was about to start a new topic about this movie, but bilal beat me to it (by about a month). The acting is outstanding, the relationships of the characters is drawn really well in a fine plot, the cinematography is superb. The English subtitles leave something to be desired, but they are adequate to get the story across. I found the movie at http://tbiet.blogspot.com/ in a May 18th posting (jeudi, Mai 18), now on the second page or lower (click on 'articles plus anciens' at the bottom of the text)
  22. This is ridiculous. You want to gather these adults together and have a "Let's Save our Asses" party, in reverse. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-naperville-north-suicide-20170522-story.html C
  23. Yet people continue to defend him. Although, I'm hearing more and more, "Well, I didn't say I liked him. I said I liked him more than the alternative." We humans are unsurpassed at justifying our stupid decisions. C
  24. Now that Trump has gone soft on Islam, kissing ass across the Middle East this week, I suppose the following is considered acceptable behavior: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/2-men-in-indonesia-caned-dozens-of-times-for-gay-sex/ar-BBBrpC4?li=BBnbcA1 The foreign excursion currently underway with Trump and his cabal of advisors is a disgusting display of greed, and how the New Amerika will embrace anyone for a dollar. No matter that Saudi interests have funded ISIS from the beginning, all is now forgiven because...because ISIS is evil just like Iran. The new ignorance in this foreign policy is astounding. Indonesia needs to feel the pressure of an economic boycott, and besides, they make lousy clothing for the American market. But their version of Sharia law is dead set against homosexual behavior between adults while they manage to overlook their huge market in child sex. Can't touch a woman before marriage but you can have all the anal rape of boys you want. This is not uncommon in Muslim countries, just ask a soldier returned from Afghanistan. The hypocrisy of this New Amerika, a supposed Christian nation, turning a blind eye to human rights violations propagated in Islamic countries is disgusting. This week is just another nail in Trump's coffin.
  25. Wait a minute. If Nevada has banned gay-conversion therapy, how can you transport someone there to do that procedure? But, assuming it was legal there, it makes for an interesting legal question. If something is illegal in a kid's state of residence, would it be legal to transport that kid against his will to a state where the act in question is legal? It seems some good arguments could be made against this practice. C
  26. The first time I read this story I knew what was coming after reading the sentence: “Come back,” I whispered, but in vain. Maybe I should have guessed sooner, but it was that sentence that was the clincher. I also tear up every time I read this story, even though I know exactly how it's going to end. That's the mark of an outstanding story. Colin
  27. So, if you're an ordained gay-hater in California, all you have to do is stuff the gay kid in the trunk of your car and drive them to Reno or Las Vegas and have your way with them. Sad!! Colin
