    Well. I think it’s supposed to be a shepherd, since the little piece by piece story behind every door is a slice of this Christmas story and today says “Shepherds were living outside the town, guarding their sheep”. But it has a cute little moustache and a big round nose so it looks more like an otter playing dress up. But I think it’s definitely supposed to be a shepherd. Not sure what he’s holding though. It’s too square to be a sheep.

    So it’s about 7am now so it’s actually tomorrow but never mind. I have finally finished making all my cards.
    Well sort of. I’ve put them together. Now I just need to stamp a sentiment inside all 17 and then it’s definitely all done.

    We were supposed to put the tree up today but I wanted to finish my cards first. The last post is the 21st for 1st class post and I rather it not be left that late. If I can finish my cards first then I can ...

  5. Women's clothing an 'invitation' to harassment

    by , 12-16-2017 at 05:06 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    'I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,' Rep. Marcy Kaptur tells fellow Democrats at a private meeting

    This is true, and it isn't just women.

    It was good to see a woman commenting that women’s clothing may seem inviting to some men. Humans, like all animals, constantly send out messages about their sexual status and interest. The ...
