Is that true? I like flowers, but I'm not a gardener.
LLapp on 2015-01-20 06:47:20
Maybe I'll run outside to check the next time I see a storm brewing . . . . and if you never hear from me again, you'll know that Richter's ruse worked.
montyb on 2015-07-19 11:07:09
LLapp? Are you there, LLapp? Helloooooo...
LLapp on 2015-08-06 10:03:00
Okay I'm back, soaking wet and tracking mud. What's for dinner?
abra on 2015-09-04 14:46:11
The flowers, woman, did they emit a sweeter fragrance? Inquiring minds need to know this.

My gardenia blossoms emit their strongest, sweetest scent just before they die.

This must be a metaphor for something.
LLapp on 2016-01-18 17:59:10
Back again, and it's mid-winter, with no flowers, just brown grass and frozen soil. But fear not: I have written this quote on half a 3x5 card and stuck it to the front of the fridge. Come April's first impending storm, I will be out among the forsythia, taking notes. Patience.

Default Sacrifice

"As soon as sacrifice becomes a duty and necessity to mankind. I see no limit to the horizon which opens before him. "
Ernest Renan
punga on 2009-11-09 10:51:11
Comma after "mankind".
montyb on 2013-08-20 00:48:34
An opening on the horizon? WORMHOLE!!!
wobray on 2014-04-08 23:02:05
We've tried sacrificing virgins, rams, goats, fatted calves, non-fatted calves, chickens, other humans, etc., and we still haven't had a lot of luck with it...
LLapp on 2015-04-10 11:03:11
ERROR: Please change the first period to a comma! No need to google the quote to verify this correction; it's a no-brainer. Thanks.
LLapp on 2015-08-20 18:02:49
We offer the needless period as a sacrifice to the Baron god, and we pray for a comma in its place. Amen.
LLapp on 2016-05-15 18:05:58
Please, Mister Baron, look and see / if there's a comma in your bag for me. / We've been waiting a long, long time / since punga asked back in 2009.

"Progress always involves risk - you can't steal second base and keep your foot on first base."
Frederick Wilcox

bansaisequoia on 2009-05-26 00:15:37
Who's on first? What's on second?

Lurker on 2011-05-28 01:14:52
I don't know.... third base.

You don't have to steal second to progress in baseball.

pootie49 on 2011-08-23 15:39:26
theres progress in baseball?

bvwRedux on 2012-02-18 00:42:02
90 feet.

locodad on 2012-10-14 14:48:52
You could steal all you want in baseball and never go to jail, bases that is. That's why is so much fun

montyb on 2013-02-16 14:49:05
And why bankers like the game so much.

Baseball: 20 minutes of excitement packed into four hours!

Quizzical on 2014-02-15 15:59:19
Allen, you're being generous. But humorous nonetheless.

Fred Wilcox was the back up catcher for the Yankees and replaced Yogi Berra when he got his foot stuck in his mouth ( just kidding)

Football: eight minutes of action spread out over three hours.

kb83 on 2016-04-08 01:59:32
Ah, stealing as a metaphor for progress-- love it.

That's certainly a letter of recommendation. I'm better than Charles Manson.

Absolutely. I never posed for nude photos in the '70s.

pootie49 on 2012-05-14 21:21:16
thank you bansai.

Never a preposition end a sentence with.

I agree -- Those nude photos of bansai in the '80s were worth waiting for.
