I passed for gray until I had a bath.
I’d like to say thank you because I have had readers from 63 different countries this year.I am very pleased that my writing and images appeals to more than just my UK friends.My biggest source is the USA and that is a big nation…but I have Finland,Qatar,Israel and Burma.I am hoping to continue next year.
Names in the Bible can carry the essence of a story. The patriarchs’ names often reflect key moments in their lives, like their births or their encounters with God. By naming her son Isaac (in Hebrew Yitzhak, from tzchok, or “laughter”), Sarah memorializes her mirth at the improbable idea of having a son at 90. But in English, Sarah’s famous laughter can’t be heard in Isaac’s name.

Send for the horse’s heads and beat upon a drum
Kindgdom come,kingdom come.
Too much idle chatter makes my heart feel numb

One day Thomas Edison came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told her, “My teacher gave this paper to me and told me to only give it to my mother.”
His mother’s eyes were tearful as she read the letter out loud to her child: Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have enough good teachers for training him. Please teach him yourself.
After many, many years, after Edison’s mother died and he was now one of the greatest inventors of the century, one day he was looking through old family things. Suddenly he saw a folded paper in the corner of a drawer in a desk. He took it and opened it up.
On the paper was written: Your son is addled [mentally ill]. We won’t let him come to school any more.
Edison cried for hours and then he wrote in his diary: “Thomas Alva Edison was an addled child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century.”
Never Give up. Be confident. Remember – (be it life, sports, career, health, family, or any competition) – any battle is won twice – THE FIRST TIME IN YOUR HEAD!!
“Evil begins when you begin to treat people as things.”
― Terry Pratchett,
An intriguing notion was the succubus
Who took the guilt off night sex from us.
Men were all innocent
But the succubus was intent
On arousing their organ with her tremulus.
It never seemed to be clear we are beasts
Imbued with reproductive pursuits.
So we all got hysteria,
Trying to be superior.
Men are all horny,at least.
I understand women’s fear of an incubus
Who excited himself to have sex with us.
Wish fulfilment makes us cheerful
And being loveless is tearful.
Yet a beloved human man is the best for us.
I suppose these are projections of our badness
Into other beings more glad than us.
We criticise in others
All our crimes,sins and bothers
Then they become even more sad than us.
a demon assuming female form in order to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep
About the Word:
A succubus is the female version of an incubus – a demon in male form who has sexual intercourse with sleeping females.
Originating in medieval European folklore, with similar beings in many cultures, succubi appear in modern fiction, video games, and South Park.
As a more practical insult, the word is also used figuratively, as in this Jezebel.com headline: “This Week In Tabloids: Courtney the Evil Succubus Maneater Will Devour Bachelor Ben.”

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back.
Guiltie of dust and sinne.
But quick-ey’d Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lack’d anything.
A guest, I answer’d, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I the unkinde, ungrateful? Ah, my deare,
I cannot look on thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?
Truth Lord, but I have marr’d them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, sayes Love, who bore the blame?
My deare, then I will serve.
You must sit down, sayes Love, and taste my meat:
So I did sit and eat.
