I saw this somewhere in my travels while driving my Bugatti Veyron across the Information Superhighway. It was in image form but I didn’t like the way it looked. I’m not saying I 100% support the statement but there is a point to be found here. I’m just sayin’.
If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspaper we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts but when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation,
we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.
This coming Saturday will be the first guest post of the new year. My guest is Te’Kia Miller. She is a wonderful poet and her works can be found on her blog, Tekia’s Blog. She not only writes poetry but also short stories. Short stories are in fact, her first love and Te’Kia’s favorite genre is science fiction. Her latest, The Fall of Gild City was posted on December 29th and I suggest if you like sci-fi, you should read it.

Excellent Observation! I love this and the next chance I get I am bring this point into the conversation. Being an artist that works in many mediums I quite confident my family looks at my art supply stash as hording. As some others who come into my home may agree. Now I have the perfect come back. Thank you so much!

Hey Tom, the statement does have a point. My promo post will go live tomorrow.

That’s a good point.

Happy New Year to you as well! To all! Yes, the bread is amazing. I added a little mozzarella for texture and it was fantastic. I’m making it this morning too!
