-Dirty Dancing- 2017

Ooooookay, at five-something pm on May 24, 2017, my friend Sasha and I watched the new ABC rendition of Dirty Dancing. I wrote the following in real time and in present tense.

Kathy Griffin Photo Controversy

In history, there have been moments where people became angry, vengeful, making a stand against either a spouse or a corporation, a rival or a local government.

Here we go!

By the way, a child was so inspired by the rainbow Equality House for the LGTBQ community that the group running the rainbow house, Planting Peace, bought one right next door in her honor.

Romance Novels: Specific Love Scenes


I've read novels by two or three different authors now who all used a particular moment in their love scenes.
I wouldn't ask authors to start being PC and change their ways,
