As always, Topic 3: your choice, was popular among the writers at Thursday’s class. Ibbie wrote a piece about the cat who allows her to live in his house, a fine tuxedo cat named Velvet, (“V” for short). It seems V arrived on Ibbie’s doorstep some time after her original cat, Harry, had claimed all... Sign in to see full entry.

All kinds of improvements coming to Quiet Town, but for the past couple of weeks it’s felt more like a disturbance in the force.

Looks to me like the current show in the White House is being staged by the same "genius" thinkers that bring us real housewives catfights and other time- waster 'reality' programming with no redeeming social values. One difference is, its "sponsors" funnel their money directly to the 'talent' by... Sign in to see full entry.

Funny the stuff you find in folders as you sort and pitch, things filed for safe keeping years ago and found now.
