One particular unique feature really stood out to me. Overlooking the shore, along the Promenade sit park benches. They dot the whole stretch. They have various inscriptions on them primarily dedicated in memory of loved ones. Like inert sentinels they seem to be they rest there, unmoved, looking

In 1999, Cameron Barnes’ published a book called,

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TURN IT OFF?
Too often when Julie and I watch a movie, I am forced to turn it off or over because of the coarse nature of the movie, particularly relating to the sex scenes. It is taken for granted that sex is a necessary part of most movies. I disagree! I don’t need to

I am steadfastly for monogamy. Adultery is almost certainly going to make a dent in trust and intimacy, and in many cases I’ve known, it has destroyed them altogether. A woman who is conducting a secret affair has to become deliberately deceitful...like a CIA agent or spy. She can’t just come home
