Sean replied to David R.'s discussion Profanity and Vulgarity
"I try and avoid the use of such words myself, although I do occasionally employ them. But I find the history of our tongue and how our language came about fascinating.  Our vulgarities are just that- vulgar, as in common.  They are among…"

"Heraclitus wrote that no man steps into the same river twice.  His student modified it to say that no man can step into the same river once.  It is always too late to be what you might have been."

"Technical point:  "extramarital" means "outside marriage".  So for the single person the act may not be cheating, but it is still, strictly speaking, extramarital."

My insanity plea, update,

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted about one of my ongoing woodworking projects-a homemade pipe organ.  I thought I would drop in an update:  I have finally completed the pipes, all four hundred and change of them,  for the keyboard.  I am now left with a decision:  Should I build fifty pipes for the pedal argan, or should I leave it keyboard only?  The pedal organ pipes would be the largest, and at… Continue

It's Shakespeare Day!

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 7:30am 8 Comments

Today is the 446th anniversary of the date traditionally assigned to Shakespeare’s birth. It is also the 396th anniversary of his death, but people being what they are, we tend to look upon the birthday rather than the deathday aspect of the matter, thus, perhaps, play some lip service to the long acclaimed notion of the ever-living, immortal bard.



But why do I speak of Shakespeare, the man from Stratford, and his life and death, when many believe that he did not, could not, in any… Continue

Lessons in Manliness

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 11:30am 1 Comment

My father. Born in Hamilton in 1922, died in Mississauga in 1996. In the almost three quarters of a century that he lived, he saw the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Post War Boom, the Cold War, the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of his life, cars were a luxury, and carts pulled by horses still rumbled regularly through the streets of Hamilton. The sound of an aeroplane flying overhead was enough to make people run out of their houses and look up. He…

Thanks. I figure a guy who takes time to welcome random people to a web community he's not in charge of is probably a guy worth knowing.

Fear of abandonment

Hello allI've been together for 10 months with my girlfriend. No matter how much she reassures me I still have serious abandonment issues.This anxiety causes me to be jealous, needy and not the confident man I want to be. I've been reading numerous articles on the issue.  I have the feeling that  I'm in a rut and I really want to get rid of this feeling and start living a more confident and relaxed life.Last month I started hitting the gym and I started a journal as of last week. The first to…See More
