Share Stricken Birds All...
KIyer 2015-3-9 08:11
I am the sole and founding member of the ‘Walking - Special Interest Group’ of the Lonely Hearts Club of Alexandra – our motto – “Don’t walk alone!” I was walking alone early one morning and saw the body of a little bird on the road. He had been hit and apparently did not make it to safety in time. This is a common scenario around these parts – the birds and animals are so comfortable with human presence and vice-versa that they sometimes cross ...

I get hand-me-down clothes from my son and they fit well. I just have to roll up the legs of the pants. He is much taller than I am.

Share Life As It Flows By
KIyer 2015-3-7 07:51
As the days slip by quickly, flowing swiftly like water in the creek near my house after rains, I don't seem to have time to pause and take a breath at leisure. It seems like an endless cycle of well known, familiar chores keep me moving like a programmed robot. This is life with school going children. There are routine chores - making breakfast, packing their lunches, driving to school, making their evening snacks, driving back, making dinner, helping with homework, driving them to th ...

Share A USA policy maker's nightmare
KIyer 2015-3-6 04:46
A policy maker from the USA had fallen asleep and had a dream. "The sun was shining in the clear blue sky. A gentle breeze was blowing. All was calm and peaceful in the world. Neighbours were getting along with each other, peacefully and lovingly. There was peace and friendliness between Arab and Jews, between Christians and Muslims, between Hindus and Muslims, between India and Pakistan, between China and India, between China and Japan, between China and Philippines, between Russia ...

Share Goodness for Goodness's sake
KIyer 2015-3-2 18:33
Teacher: "What is goodness in people?" Student 1: "When someone gives money to someone else in need, or helps them in times of trouble, we call their actions 'good deed'. It is supposed to reflect 'goodness' in the person." Teacher: "But is it really always so?" Student 2:"I reckon it should be. Isn't it always so, Teacher?" Teacher: "Ok! Lets take an example and study it. Can you tell me of an actual 'good deed' as you describe it and let's see if it indeed reflects goodn ...

KIyer 2015-2-16 05:48
Hearing that HRRomeo thought the list of expectations of man from a woman on the online website was 'good', Juliet and her friend’s jaws dropped open in apparent horror. HRRomeo did not seem to notice it. "What?" they asked in sync. Juliet’s friend continued, "You think it a good list? This is what a man seeks in a woman and it is OK in this day and age?" "Of course! It is a good list of capabilities for ANY day and age, isn’t it?" replied HRRomeo, "All the things one hopes ...

The Honest Romantic "Does my butt look big in this dress?" she asked her truthful, romantic partner who she had met online. She had clearly stated that honesty was an absolute necessity and a deal-breaker. She had ranked the requirement of his being 'romantic' fairly high. He had answered “Yes” on both counts. She saw he was looking at his mobile phone as she asked the question and it seemed he was busy and did not hear her qu ...
