Would you be scared to drive across this bridge . ...
The Millau viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris and Barcelona and features
the highest bridge piers ever constructed. The tallest is 240 meters (787 feet) high and the overall height will be an impressive 336 meters (1102 feet), making this the highest bridge in the world.
I can barely drive across local bridges without an anxiety attack.
One word answer (yes or no)...Could you do it...knowing exactly where you were?

This forum is officially a smash hit. I am excited to present once again POT LUCK FRIDAY.
What I would like to do is get some feed back from some non blogging readers or some bloggers that don't have the time to blog right now. An open forum, if you will. Anything and everything in love, life, the world(personal or global), or whatever.
There is no topic off limits! I know that relationship posts are common but be more specific. What element of the relationships? Finding one, keeping one, how to get out of one..all are up for discussion and friendly debate.
I am an information junkie! Garbage in--garbage out! But, I still like to process information. So, I'd like to try to start a day where the readers are in control of every single question, we take the comment that is posted right before you, answer their comment question, then post your own question for the next person. We can discuss it in a civil manner. If it goes well, then it could be really fun. I must exercise more moderation on the personal topics comments. I got a few emails from some participants and I must agree that some of the comments were hurtful and should be handled off line...privately. Let's have fun and keep it clean...please---thank you.
Have a fantastic weekend and let's come up with some great questions to kick around the campfire!
So without further delay.....who is up for the challenge, part 21?

Keeping in line with the "theme days" so that I don't drain all of my reserve tank dry from working on book projects, recruiting, and blogging, there shall be another instituted theme day. Today and henceforth Wednesdays shall be named...WTF WEDNESDAY!!!!!
Ok, so it isn't exactly a Wednesday post cause I'm publishing it at 8:30 pm EST. My bad!!! LOL!
There is no set subject. Anything that is on your mind. It is an open forum where the first lines of each comment start with WTF...now that could mean what the frick, where the frick, why the frick, who the frick, etc., but each comment should start with WTF.
Here's a prime example of a WTF moment in THIS YAHOO STORY about how lil miss bush became engaged. WTF(why) is this getting press over the serious issues happening in the us right now?!
Have fun and keep it as clean as possible, fam.
Have a fantastic day!

Man...I have to put myself on blast. On Monday, whilst I was writing Lo's Birthday blog, off in da cut in the kitchen with the door open, I didn't notice a black and yellow visitor that crept up in the house.
Shown in their own natural environment, they seem like docile insects. But let me tell you this, fam...OH MY GOD!!!! I did have a higher pitch voice than normal when I met Mr. Hornet.
I thought it might be a fly that casually flew past my hand under the table. Boy was I wrong, so I just waved a lil bit thinking it would bounce...and bounce it did. I was wearing some Nike sweatpants and a few seconds later, I get this feeling like a match was lit and held on my leg.
I jumped up and uttered a few choice profane words and saw him try to escape through the closed window. I looked for anything in the kitchen to kill the lil bastard with and found nothing. I went into the office, the next room over, and found an issue of Los Angeles Magazine (wasn't mine, so I didn't want to get stung by the Mrs. too), so I put it down. Then I picked up some file folders of mine and commenced to swinging.
I spotted him behind the curtain. Swung like Barry Bonds for Home run #756. Dazed him and moved him to the rug at the back door and...
I stomped that S.O.B like Bruce Lee did in "Enter the Dragon" against O'Hara with the crunchy sound and all.
...this oughtta help you out.
I waited til I was almost 40 yrs old to get my first bee/hornet sting. I must say I went out like a punk. I used to laugh when people acted like it was soooo painful.
I was quickly attended to by the Google expert herself that had whipped up a home remedy within minutes of my antics.
Watch out for the stingers, they might get you in the end. Oh and yeah...THEY HURT LIKE HELL!!!
This has been my public service announcement.

I didn' t realize that much time had passed since I posted a blog but I guess to borrow the phrase from the insurance company" Life comes at you fast", truer words may not have ever been spoken. It's been a fantastic mini vacation. My time off has been super productive yet, it's now time to get back on the grind with my blogging again...
I had a lot of topics to reflect on today, but the only thing that matters is that I have an opportunity to do so. So many entities attempt the threaten even the ability to put my thoughts into the blogosphere as a freedom of expression and speech. As sad as it is, it is true. Creative expression is on the defense against many foes and it is about to be a war to keep it that way.
I'm just glad to be able to post a blog without having it edited for content. Today marks my first celebrated Independence Day for blogging.
How would you feel if your blog posts had to be edited before you published them and if something didn't sound politically correct to the editor, changed and there would be nothing you could do about it.
It sounds crazy doesn't it?...Crazy like a fox!
Thanks for stopping by my little water cooler.
