    It’s not fair of you to make me ball like that without prior warning to grab a tissue first ;) May God bless precious Sophia in every way that you’ve prayed for her life. Hope she has a fantastic 4th birthday!

    Wow. Jen has nice handwriting. :)

    I hope she reads this when she’s 13 and nervous because she broke daddy’s car bumper while driving the car. :)

    Beautiful, man. Just beautiful.

    Very cool, Dustin. My wife writes notes to our son for each of his birthdays. The last handwritten note I wrote was to a Compassion International child that we sponsor. My hand hurt afterward as well. Maybe that’s an indication I should write more notes.

      that’s very cool, jeremy. i bet it’s neat to look back at past b’day notes and see how things have changed.

    I just wrote letters this Saturday morning. One to my high school choir teacher. I last saw her in 1985, but I had been thinking about her, so I Googled her. I wrote a second letter to a friend who has just gone to prison for vehicular manslaughter. He’s a really good guy who made a really stupid decision. I’m trying to encourage him while he’s incarcerated for the next 8 years.

    Love handwritten notes. Just sent one to a dear friend this past week. Amid this digital age I hope we never forget about the power of the handwritten word. Would love to do this with my own children someday.

      you’re so right. it’s so easy to send a text, email, or tweet. but to sit down and write something out? takes a little bit of effort… :)

    This is something I have started doing for my wife and I really enjoy it. Not only does it remind me how much I love her, but it’s a reminder to her that she is deeply loved.

    When I have children, I will write them so many notes! Starting with my wife is great practice!

    I really have to agree with Robert. Congrats getting over the drugs. They don’t do anything for you but kill you slowly. I think everyone has their own masterpiece that they create by their own aciesplcshmontm. Your masterpiece-your conquering of the drugs in your life. So you see, you do have a masterpeice in your life.

  • Twenty years, Zolt, but then again how often do you find a Quaddafi and Farrakhan phile as your preacher, who you trust to preside over your wedding, to have your kids follow his teachings, nothing couldgo wrong there

  • Bonjour Jacqueline,Est-ce que tout ce qui se passe actuellement, licenciements en série (8000 chez Peugeot) fait partie de ce carré PLUTON URANUS !Pourquoi des salariés doivent-ils payer et faire les frais du capitalisme ! Quand cela s’arrêtera t-il ?Est-ce que toutes ces mesures impopulaires ne risquent elles pas de provoquer des rebellions, des révoltes de la part du peuple.Je sais que les crises nous font avancer mais dans ce cas là, les chômeurs doivent ils comprendre certaines choses !Bonne journée sous un ciel gris

  • la verdad es que han intentado crear espectáculo mediático de algo que lo tiene, pero lo han hecho de un modo tan casero, que es que nadie tenñia ni idea de que iba la cosa, pero bueno, a ver si para el año que viene aprenden y no se traen aquí a los de deportes, sino alguien capaz de aportar algo, que no estaría de más. uff.

    Ouiiiii, je l’ai reçu, désolée, je me suis encore fait dépassée par mes mails :(Arf, quand j’ai lu ton mail, j’ai été tentée de dire oui tout de suite et en fait après réflexion, ce n’est pas une bonne idée, je ne sais pas de quoi sera fait l’année, je préfère vous suivre sans m’engager mais ce n’est pas sans regrets. Des filles du premier swap’anniv s’inscrivent t-elles ?

    What Vuyo is trying to tell people here, is that all of the lies, the psuedo statistics by WHO, UNAIDS, Harvard, TAC, The Economist, Pierre de Vos, Zackie Achmat, Tony Leon, Gwede Mantashe, Blade Nzimande, and so on and so forth and stuff like that. All of those have been disproved by the man in a yellow suit.
