Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

I remember an episode of Little House On The Prairie...

... when the Ingalls family were losing their home to foreclosure because times were hard (like what else was new). It was being auctioned off and it seems the entire town of Walnut Grove was crammed inside the house to bid. There were about 8 people who bid, but they'd only bid one dollar. Ma started to cry. Then the kids started to cry. Then Pa saw his family crying so he started to cry. After the auction was over the winning bidder said something like "It's true that we only bid a dollar, Charles, but being the winning bidder means we're able to sell it back to you for a dollar", so the Ingalls family were able to buy their house back for a dollar. Then I started to cry. haha

I don't remember this episode, but it does sound like a tearjerker.

If only things were that simple today. I loved that show and catch episodes on TV every now and again.

I did like it, but not anymore. I don't think it's held up as well as, say, The Gong Show

I loved the books. The TV show made me want to go postal.

I tried to read the book but it didn't hold my interest because there were no pictures
