ZZ you and your daughter are simply lovely.

I think you meant to say, "ZZ you and your daughter are simply TOPs."

Ha! Just now seeing this. Well played!

Although some of the individual's in this photo think they are adults, I am the only actual adult.  ;)

Photo is from this summer's Vacation Bible School.  This year I taught them about being "Salt of the Earth".



Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

So are leftover blood in steak and chicken meat unacceptable?

There is no blood in steak nor chicken. Not in anything you are going to find in the US at least.

I hope someone else has pointed this out.

And yes, blood is delicious.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I think I've seen a photo of you before, but I don't remember you looking like this.  You look so young!  Maybe you are young, I don't know.  Anyway, it is a nice picture.  And the v-neck is a good choice.  Always pick a v-neck over a crew neck unless of course it is a deep v-neck.  A deep v-neck is always gross no matter who you are.

Ionnis, yes I get the comment quite a bit that I am very young looking. I'm keeping the peach fuzz so I don't look fully 12 years old. Remember I can't grow a beard to save my life.

I looked better a few years ago.

I wear v-necks simply because I hate regular t-shirts, the collar just bothers me way too much.

I got in trouble today at work because my jeans were sagging and I forgot to bring a belt. The one day I forget, and some old lady complains!

Here is one of me and my niece.  This was taken a few hours after birth.  She is almost one month old now.  She is very sweet.  I now have a niece and a nephew, which is nice.

Aw, thank you!  You're too kind.  My heart explodes whenever I see her.  Perhaps if I had ovaries they'd explode too.  :)
