    Weirdy thoughts…I thought you were talking of baking…and we are on the same wavelength I supposed…but no! This one’s another thing!

    Great words to think about!

    A really knotty problem!! Not as simple as Sponge Bob’s crabby patties!! The complicated city lifestyle, it really holds no charm for me.though I live in one!! 😦

    Ahh, perfect inner city and/or large city complexities … a few choice cities came to mind, now I know to add Baltimore to the list … unfortunately! Great word choices for barbed charm!!

      Unfortunately, so many cities struggle with similar issues: failing education, drugs, urban decay. But there are many many hope-filled stories as well. 🙂 Thanks!

      Thanks! Apparently I’m almost as good at packing a punch as I am at packing a lunch 😉 I like it too–enjoy it while you can; it will be forced to go on January 4th.
