Very busy and now very tired so few words and no pics for you tonight. It's sorta like braille for high-functioning morons.

Quote of the Day

Based on his immense collection quotes I'm thinking Winston Churchill pretty much had the Middle East figured out a 100 years ago and we're just re-learning everything the hard way.

The Middle East is one of the hardest-hearted areas in the world.  It has always been fought over, and peace has only reigned when a major power has established firm influence and shown that it will maintain its will.  Your friends must be supported with every vigour and if necessary they must be avenged.  Force, or perhaps force and bribery, are the only things that will be respected.  It is very sad, but we had all better recognize it.  At present our friendship is not valued, and our enmity is not feared.

Ghosting and Demon Lovers

One of the 50 classic ways to leave your lover is to simply leave without a trace or explanation i.e. 'ghosting'.
