Sara - This is great for those who fly these days. Why in hell don't the airlines print a quickie flyer with this stuff? It is interesting, even though I don't fly much, anymore. From this, I'm glad I don't Thank you.- Bill

Sara - You ad I have been poetic and online buddies for many months, and I've come to appreciate how you write. From your tribute to "Mom," I recommend your writing at length on subjects with which you feel special connections.
I am a better and more spiritual person after having read your work. Although a Christian, I have had to find my own way through all the man-made falderal, and absolutes, therein. Thank you for doing this piece, and in being genuine throughout its telling. Anyone who reads this is bound to be better for it. The word, Honesty," comes to mind... and that's enough for me. -Friend Bill

"Despite our worst efforts, life manages to survive human intervention."
Sara, this story is priceless. The intro line is perfect, the story flowed beautifully. The ending had me laughing out loud. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Laughing my butt off, thanks Sara. Um... I mean, Ed. After all, without Ed, there would be no story. Best laugh I've had today.

Simplicity is so under-rated anymore. And don't even get me started on the ridiculousness of "fashion boots". Your article was humourous but full of excellent advice.
Road Warrior Cries the Blues (Short Story) - 10/8/2004 7:57:07 AM
Nice to hear from another wise seasoned traveler, and some wonderful advice, Sara. I just wish others would heed it and learn. I got so tired of the constant hassles and delays caused by the people you speak of, I now drive most everywhere; and I'm much happier these days.
Truly hope frequent fliers heed your sage advice.

Hehehehehe...this reminded me when my luggage was over weight...I had to unpack almost 7 pounds of chocolates to reduce the penalty to still another 40 pounds overweight...I had to take all those chocolates as hand luggage...and I had a overload of books already...and the moment I was doe with the security check tha baggy with the chocolates fell and all landed spreaded over the damn floor...I picked it up and the last sa 20 cubes or so ..I just left it on the conveyor and told the staff they could have it. You musta seen the joy on their faces...Everybody just started to laugh and the tention was gone!!
Take are Dear one!!

I was going to suggest you send for Ed (Kostro that is) but I see he has already called in! We do have snakes in the UK, Adders, but I have only ever seen one, many years ago, while eight months pregnant, I had a mad urge to climb down a cliff in Whitby to pick wild flowers and I very nearly sat on an adder that was basking in the early morning sun. (We do get sun occasionally!) Jackie <> <

(Note to self, husband is a chicken shit.)
Sorry to say, I'd have to agree with you, Sara! A harmless baby garter snake, and your hubby's name is Ed, too - Double Shame!
Really enjoyed this; and so glad you weren't afraid of Baby Snake. He probably wanted to help you meditate since snakes are very good at it - sometimes never moving for days - while they think.
Life's Comedy - Or How Not to Catch a Snake (Short Story) - 8/1/2004 12:25:43 AM
Ohhhhh shit thank you for the meditating read.....goodness I laughed so loud I think you could hear me.......OH Saraaaaaa!!
Wow it's been quite a while since the last time I had so much fun reading you!!
Thank you Sis!!
This was just great!!
Saving this one for sure!!

A Letter to Mankind (Article) - 8/16/2008 9:21:06 PM
It is true that Human Beings are stupid. They prepare war, they prepare killing each other, they prepare famine, they prepare innocent children to die, they prepare cancer, and they prepare to poison the world. And because of their beliefs or ideologies - Religion, Science and Politics - they prepare to destroy life. If they can only think deeper, that aside for looking a decent meal, the main purpose of life is nothing more but to enjoy it with fun to the fullest...AOUIE

I never could understand the concept of desiring to plagerize. How can you possibly consider yourself creative if you don't create? I can't even use a pattern in sewing or crafts because of this. Maybe I'm just too prideful, but I can't stand the idea of using somebody else's ideas-- I do however, enjoy twisting ideas to conform with my own. I'm all about twisting... --Charlie

It is unfortunate, Mrs. Coslett, some people do not wish to be confused with the facts. In any event, thank you for this useful information. It reduces five-hundred pages of tax minutiae down to one page of easily understood words. I have found when detractors complain about our country ... they can never name one country that offers a better system or quality of life.
Warm regards ...

Well, 3 years late and all I still found this article enlightening. The metaphor really helped me understand. Thanks for sharing. Liz
Ruff Work (Article) - 7/26/2007 5:46:14 PM
I agree. This is a wonderful idea and when considered with the cost of other detection devices cost effective. I volunteer Bob Barker to head the program. He is a stance animal lover. Or Betty White would be great. Either one would see that the animals are treated better than our vets and soldiers are. I have a beagle and I believe he and his breed would be wonderful for the job. They are a small-medium sized and are breed to sniff their prey to ground. Wonderful article and great information. Thanks for sharing. Liz
Ruff Work (Article) - 7/17/2007 6:45:36 AM
Excellent idea. I could see tax rebates for training your dog to do something better than attack strangers and neighborhood kids and pets. Traveling with a dog can be an adventure, especia;lly when there are no doggie rooms at the inn.
Saw a guy in a wheelchair (MD?) getting into his van (he drives, like me) yesterday at a hospital with his helper dog on leash. These dogs can be a life saver. But they need care, too. So much so that I decided not to replace my pomeranian after a big dog killed him.
Ruff Work (Article) - 7/16/2007 7:13:22 AM
On the surface, a fine idea, Sara. But having worked for our government, I would never trust it to properly care for our pets. Our valiant veterans are treated most shabbily these days by our government leaders; I can't imagine the horrors man's best friend would be put through.
PS It was also our government that ordered people to 'leave behind' their devoted pets in the wake of Hurricane Katrina's massive destruction.

I agree that the father's reaction is a little unexpected. But I agree with you that it was a good day when the 500 pound bomb found the serial killer. Psychopaths are psychopaths whether in war time or peace time. Excellent write. Liz
Tax Cuts - A Simple Lesson In Economics (Article) - 4/18/2007 2:01:05 AM
I would say that it's a bit of a crock in how it's presented as it's presented as a clear metaphor that represents stratification in our society due to economic boundaries and economic relationships. However, the entire metaphor is in a big way flawed, because when the HELL would the four poorest folk eat in the same restaurant with the richest one?
The four poorest are not allowed in the same restaurants, nor would the richest show up if they were. Hence, the poor do pay in other ways that are not represented here. They are hardly getting the "free ride" implied by this article!
I am a Canadian who moved to the UK 7 years go. I will quote a good friend who echoes my thoughts on the Canadian system:
"What are taxes supposed to pay for? Let's think about that. They are supposed to fund public institutions, and pay for the construction and maintenance of publicly used spaces like roads and parks, they are supposed to pay the salaries of public servants, etc. etc. In Canada, our taxes go to pay for other social safety-net things like health care and welfare, etc. These funds are not always handled carefully, and while i'll grant that, I don't believe that keeping them in private hands is a better, or more morally justifiable solution. I think that taxes get wasted mostly by people who forget what they are really for...
This feels especially fresh as the last job I worked at took huge chunks of my salary for taxes. I *felt* that money gone every paycheque. But I still strongly believe in the need for us to all chip in not just enough to make ends meet, but enough to do a good job for everyone who relies on services that taxes pay for." - Roxanne B
I too am happy to pay my taxes and always have been. Although, in the UK, I really do feel my taxes are being pissed mercilessly down a hole.
My trust in all public institutions and the whole idea of a government run for the people has been atom-bombed since moving here. When you're put in situation where your government seems to betray and rob you at every turn and claims that it is acting in the name of the under-privileged, suddenly, right-wing politics looks more tempting. I figure some Americans must feel the same.
Let's use a real-life UK example to extend this metaphor. A three stop subway journey on the now-private "public transport" system is has now hit 4 pounds (yes, that's 10 dollars CAD / 8 US for a 5-minute ride; and almost double what it was 3 years ago (2.20 - 4.00).
Privatization is supposed to encourage the 10th man to stay at the table, and let the natural beauty of "market forces" control pricing, wasted spend. I.e. the capitalist engine keeps the machinery of society lean and fit through healthy competition.
B**shit. In fact privitisation specifically, and the type of thinking represented in this article generally, provide and opportunity for the tenth man to extract this $59 BACK from the 4 poorest by fact that they can't get home from the restaurant without paying his extortionate rates for services he privately owns. He, however, can afford a place next door.
My tears for you... oh tenth man! Please don't abandon the biggest economy in the world, which lets you trample human rights, environmental laws, and buy yourself enough party lobbyist to legalise murder by proxy! Please don't leave the place that considers you it's ultimate achievement and values your precious capital more than any other noun on the earth! You might have a harder time going somewhere where healthcare is on you, transport is on you, pregnant woman go off work on you, and a myriad other atrocious impositions from YOUR EMPLOYEES trying to get a fraction of the quality of life you take for granted.
- Thank you,

Some people took my songs from my songs site and posted them together with Sandie Shaw's and others. See this link for yourself:
However, they have given me the credits for the songs that I have sung, so I think it is okay.
Also my story "My Psychic Dream" has been copied together with my name and put into another author's site who is a psychic advisor, and then one of my reviews here in the Den in which I had responded to another author's work regarding how I had escaped death when pinned underneath a car is posted in another's site. However, they have all given me the credit for the work I have done, so I have not said anything. I wonder if it is appropriate because these people have not asked for my permission first, even though they have posted my name along with the my songs and posts.
Anyway, most of my work are done instantaneously, i.e. I think, and therefore I write type of style.

Good article! In fact, I'm seriously considering removing your name and posting it on my website.
Just kidding! Lol
Plagiarism in an Online Community (Article) - 8/26/2006 8:14:23 AM
Very interesting and well thought out article! Since plagiarism is a serious thing to accuse someone of, I also applaud you for not naming names.
There could actually be other explanations for someone's apparent copying. For example, a writer may have posted somewhere else, perhaps earlier in their writing career, using other pen names. Or maybe the OTHER person is the one that actually plagiarised from the one that's being accused.
I also know of at least one AD writer that relies very, VERY heavily on public domain works. Which opens up the liklihood that others may have utilized the same public domain items..not always the best (most honest) thing to do, but probably not illegal.
Anyway, I very much respect the way you handled this article by pointing out a potentially serious problem without accusing anyone specifically. Well done.
Plagiarism in an Online Community (Article) - 8/25/2006 8:58:40 PM
Oh Sara, don't be afraid to call a spade a spade!!! Name names !!! ;)
Plagiarism in an Online Community (Article) - 8/25/2006 3:28:02 PM
In my books there is no excuse and they should be named and asked to defend their work in public. If they feel they have the right to plagarize then they should be pointed out.
Plagiarism in an Online Community (Article) - 8/25/2006 2:56:21 PM
Plagiarism runs rampant on the Internet, because it's so easily accomplished in this environment. I've found several of my poems and articles displayed on other websites - supposedly penned by someone else! I think it will only get worse.
Plagiarism in an Online Community (Article) - 8/25/2006 1:42:32 PM
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Once a plagerist, always a plagarist. Like the cleverly-crafted Internet hoaxes and more cleverly Internet viruses, plagarism is a violation of copyright law and criminal.
This person does not need kindly reminders like a five-year-old. This person needs to be exposed and his/her name posted on the Internet as a warning to the unwary.

Interesting and thought provoking and yes I sort of raised an eyebrow when I saw the father's response but who can know what this man has gone through and perhaps his mind has been affected by the loss of his son in a different way then you or I. Not for me to judge I guess.

Very interesting article. Any invention, as well as it may have been intended, can be turned into a killer. Same holds for the internet. The only positive thought which comes to my mind after reading your article is that all negative energies are auto-destructive. Bad feelings such as hatred and pride are like parasites that feed on psychological merits. An enemy motivated by hatred can harm us, but will destroy itself in the long run. Franz

To love . . . (Poetry) - 12/3/2013 4:40:05 PM
I understand your journey...it is hard to reconcile a God of love with our world as it has become, but The Lord has given us His answer if we'll take the time to hear Him out. Most will not. Because the truth convicts us all, and shows Him to be innocent. Your poem is honest, and a common expression of the human heart, written in a fresh way.
No Place Like Love (Poetry) - 11/7/2013 10:32:58 AM
It is wonderful for me to read you again my Jewish Princess. The plight of the homeless is even here in Arizona. Your telling like it is sure is factual. I am an old man now and do not stop to give the street people a dollar bill or two. My life has come 360. NYC was my old stomping walks, but now? who knows. You still are very talented my poetess Goddess. Great Write.......GOD BLESS YOU.....Always, Tony Nerone

I don't get it. Not when it come to POliticks tics tics. They BUG me.

Jesus Christ is THE answer.
If Christians were given a paycheck to save the poor and the help sick we might all get well quick.

To love . . . (Poetry) - 7/29/2013 8:21:57 PM
Sorry, Sara, like you, I often feel there is no one to love us.
My problem is that since we have intelligence and reason, why do we keep wondering and searching in spite of ourselves?
What drives science on to discovery is the hint that something is there.
What keeps people from going awol with reality is the hint that just maybe something is there.
It's that hin that keeps me searching.

The Interview With God (Poetry) - 1/26/2013 3:09:13 AM
Faith is indeed a mystery!
But one thing we all know...
We all have a home to go home to.
Be it either a park bench, a tent or a mansion.
It makes little difference really.
Life is NOT what it IS.
IT is HOW we react to LIFE.
After all, there are miserable people in mansions and very happy people in tents!
I have LIVED in TENTS and have marveled at the crispness of the air outside upon waking up. So did a few others...
Still, there were some who yearned and complained wined for the creature comforts of a cozy house.
My motto has been, "Home IS where I hang MY HAT, I MAKE THE VERY BEST of where I am AT!"
That is the motto I have lived by and it's made all the difference in the world!
Still, one thing is for sure, and we can surly agree.
Every atheist this life and every believer in the Lord will one day be gone - yes, we will all disappear.
So I ask, "Where is your Eternal Address?"
You are building the road to your Eternal Address today.
Yes, we all can agree- we have a choice to make.
I know my Eternal Address and I will make the BEST of that Eternity!

The great religious excuse for man's inhumanity to man: "free will." For how else God, if God exists, how else can those who believe, believe that a benevolent god would allow such horror? The great excuse: "free will."
To love . . . (Poetry) - 12/16/2012 10:08:06 AM
God doesn't allow of cause things to happen ... everything is made of God ... we are all God ... our purpose, either negative or positive was designed so God could observe his creation from within ... not to influence it ... that is left to our free will ...

To love . . . (Poetry) - 12/16/2012 6:15:18 AM
this is a remarkable piece Sara!
I appreciate reading this so much
and while looking for answers, and
reason after reason why, I feel you
have given us a God Sent Answer:
"No, my love.
Your kind is so young.
Just a few thousand years have passed since your awakening.
Iím sorry yours now and before
Has had to know so much pain.
But, your creation is still evolving.
You are a work yet, undone.
And sadly, perfection takes so much time
To go through all possible permutations
Of good, goodness and the unspeakable.
At least until
To Love . . . "
this helps me so very much
I am so grateful to have seen this
because this is the reason...this is the answer
this is very valid & very wholesome & for me
God Spoke Through You...
Love & Kindred Blessings xx
To love . . . (Poetry) - 12/16/2012 4:07:51 AM
an honest questioning, Sara,
and a finely delivered work in tragic
we were given the opportunities to evolve,
we're still becoming but it seems we have
a very long way to go..probably closer in the past
than we are at the moment to a possibility of higher
good to see you posting after so long

In regards to your thought on the creator, my latest book is titled "The Late Great God," and it is all about why, if there is a god, does he allow innocent children to be hurt and killed.

Circling the Work Wagon (Poetry) - 11/11/2012 12:23:15 PM
Extremely novel way to describe the "rat race" of work,Sara. I like it!
It,unfortunately, does not get any better until one decides to "opt out", i.e.,retire. Even retirement can become too busy,especially when one finally gets to do the things one enjoys.

Well, I have had many adventures since we last spoke. Iíve been at deathís door twice, surprising how great the temptation is to resign yourself too it.
However, something inside kept fighting on, I guess you will too.
We,just need to keep taking the tablets.
Give Me Strength (Poetry) - 10/14/2012 8:19:30 AM
This reads like you need the strength to get up and get out, and even get away from where you are out and into the light of day, because there's a lot more to life than this poem.

Sara, your words echo clear and strong for like-minded souls who hear what you say. Expressed beautifully my friend.
Give Me Strength (Poetry) - 10/14/2012 3:23:24 AM
Sometimes we must seek out that surprise, or actually make up our own. I understand where you're coming from, life gets boring and stale, but sitting back and waiting for something to happens isn't the way to create excitement and/or surprise.
Give Me Strength (Poetry) - 10/13/2012 9:30:22 PM
Liked it very much. Very sensitive poem. Only a good literature may fill the gap for a good poet. This comes in that category...
Give Me Strength (Poetry) - 10/13/2012 9:15:10 PM
Yes, your verses do evoke sadness but they also express the angst of the theme that you write about here and that is seemingly timeless and universal in this world/life. Thank you, Sara. Love and best wishes,
Give Me Strength (Poetry) - 10/13/2012 8:54:16 PM
This poem seems so sad, Sara. And if these words are a true reflection of your feelings, as I do not know you and as I am not one of religion I, in all honesty, cannot offer truthful words of solace or hope. However, I, as most people, I am sure do go through pitiful times and sometimes, in time, given time, life can become much more bearable as I would hope for you.

Some are tasked to carry a heavy burden

to make it to the end.
You will make it, Sara ~

Powerful words. The true meaning of a one dog night. Unfortunately, in the North she may need more than one dog to make it to morning.

Sadly, you share a timeless and universal theme of this world/life, Sara. Like wars, things have not really evolved. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
No Place Like Love (Poetry) - 1/22/2012 4:35:47 PM
a sad but beautiful poem ... good to see you posting again ...
No Place Like Love (Poetry) - 1/22/2012 1:52:00 PM
I wrote a similar poem a few years ago. This is very touching and about as true to life as you can get. Even touched this old grouchy reprobate.
No Place Like Love (Poetry) - 1/22/2012 1:46:18 PM
Very sad yet lovely poem, Sara.
As it so happens, today there was a homeless man with a dog standing at the on ramp of the freeway but he was to the right of my car (on thewrong side) and, though I took some money from my wallet and was about to open the window and lean across to give it to him, the light changed and as there were cars behind me I went on, but have felt bad about it all day.

Running from ourselves, or even from others, sometimes gives us a greater recognition of our vulnerabilities.
The Obama Generation (Poetry) - 11/16/2011 10:04:37 AM
I am afraid that is the logo for all mortician politicians of diversity. And if you think one party is better than the other, look at their wardrobes, their Tiffany accounts, and their bank accounts, then look into yours that 47% of Congress are millionaires, That is part of the 1% of wealth in America.

The Wolfy Pack (Poetry) - 7/11/2011 12:45:55 AM
Of course he's running steeplechases, Sara.
I admire how you manage to be so fluent
and energetic in your writing here, a difficult
thing to do considering such loss of a family
member, and pets are definitely family.
This is a fine biography of one who mattered
so much. Thank you.
The Wolfy Pack (Poetry) - 7/10/2011 4:40:27 PM
Only we dog people can understand the deep sadness that overtakes us when one of our "kids" go to doggie heaven. So sad that it is a fact of our lives that the puppy will grow and live and grow old as we merely grow older. I am ashamed to admit, and think that there may be something wrong with me, but I cried more when my Yorkie, Harry, died than when my mother passed away.
So sorry for your loss, Sara.

Actually that's not outrageous ... For valentines one year I spent nearly that much and didn't get caviar. 3 things to remember... She can afford it... It's NYC... It's the Waldorf Astoria. Unless you've eaten there you wouldn't know. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a certain amount of class be given to the first lady. Democrat or republican.
Just my opinion... Your milage may vary...

Today's society has created a need for "something" else in a home to replace the traditional "wife" whether that something is a maid, a live in, a relative or just a scheduled union of all hands.

Circling the Work Wagon (Poetry) - 1/8/2011 10:38:18 AM
So much of what we write, especially regarding the poetry that we write, is so much a part of ourselves, of what we've allowed our lives to become. This endless circle that you write of, Sara, tells much of what and how you are and, unfortunately, life is so short and yet, what choice is there? What choice do you have?
So true, but so unfortunate.

I'm confuzzled. His Idea, well it was an idea Clinton had in the 90's. Does sound a good idea. Kinda like here. Go in to hospital and everyone is treated the same at no cost. Whereas before 1947 only the rich could afford medical aid. We had many Dr.'s etc anti the NHS. But now peeps will fight to keep our amazing health service. It must be a culture thing.

Powerful decription describing the pangs of obsession, the process by which the over-ride button sweeps away all other thoughts besides the ONE. There is no white-knuckle escape, it seems, which has any lasting value other than "temporary." It runs deeper than that. One has to really drill down to get to the core of it. Great poem.

Sara - Understated but more powerful for that, profound and touching.
The simplicity of the last line expresses so much more than the literal definition of failure ... sorrow, regret, longing and acceptance of an experience that could not be changed. - David
