In this world whatever that needs to be written has been written...whatever jokes need to be told has been told...whatever advise that needs to be given has been given...I take what i like and where possible put my own take on these writings, rehash them and share them with those that want to read them....the originality is from the way I try to craft them into situations that are around us.
