I love baby bunnies, I encounter them a lot this time of year on my walk to work during the pre-dawn hours. They are less skittish than their parents.

I am clueless why you are posting a lie that "there is no love in this world anymore". Please explain why you are promulgating this thought.

It's a line from a song called "I Believe," by the Buzzcocks. It's a bittersweet and funny song in which a man lists some things he believes in and others which are impossible. At the end of the song, he repeats, "There is no love..." I was feeling depressed after a recent argument, so I put that up there. I change my quotes from time to time. I will try and pick a new quote soon.   :)

Thanks Dear Biro, I understand.
I have been feeling depressed as well, which is probably why I have been posting today.
