Robb, is that the writing thing, to see what you can do in one month?  I did that one year, jeepers, it was terrible.  Good way to get going at the typer though.

Yes Dog, I've never done it before, but I'm trying to finish my 4th book before Christmas so I am giving it a try. 2500 words a day.

That's a lot of words per day, Robb.  I never came close to that.  75,000 words is what? about three hundred pages.  Good Luck!  I had fun but ran out of steam about mid-month.

Some headline writer at CNN needs to be replaced: Scientists replace skin of "butterfly child"with rare genetic disease.

    Let's go eat Grandma.

Jacey, age old punctuation example.  A comma can save a life.  Let's go eat Grandma.  Or.  Let's go eat, Grandma.

Yeah, I knew it was familiar.  Just re-emphasizing the importance. 

A panda walks into a bar.  He orders a plate of bamboo from the bartender and settles in to have lunch.  Once he's finished, he pulls out a .357 Magnum, fires three shots into the air, and walks out.  Another guy at the bar gives a WTF look to the bartender, who shrugs and hands over a wildlife book opened to the page on pandas.  It says "eats, shoots and leaves."

"Ranger Dan and his big dog, Dick"

"Ranger Dan and his big dog dick"

Somehow I don't think I could get away with using that in my 7th or 8th grade classes..... Though the prison inmates would have loved it when I taught there.

So a judge agrees with me in the Penn State Piazza binge drinking suicide...

And had the frat boys not destroyed evidence, that might not have been the case.  http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/13/us/penn-state-fraternity-hazing-death/index.html

I stopped caring about that story months ago Jes.

I still have no sympathy for him at all and if his family gets rich off of it I hope kharma gets the best of them in short order.

No one made him do what he did.

He willingly drank what he drank.

Thats called suicide not murder.
