Sorry Brenda, but all my posts are orange (except where black is appropriate for sorrow). Glad you liked the review though ;)

Re: The Goblet - Take 1 & Suggestions

What a beautiful goblet. It really doesn't need much if any embellishment, but (as others have already said) a crest of Benden Weyr/Hold or a line drawn dragon would look really nice on it.

Dedicated to Virginia Tech Victims

Gun Laws

The gun laws didn't save me
As terror came that day
A discontented student
Went on a killing spree

He hated our society
He had a grudge against the world
He raved and he ranted

Re: Odd songs that stick in your head

I wrote last night. Hope you like.

Destination Unknown

I journey long
I travel far
I fly by plane
I go by car
I catch a bus
I hop a train

Destroying Planet Earth?
