Not enough points by Cassie’s Stories (BLW Contributor)

Cassie's Stories

I’d forgotten all about this short story that I wrote a few weeks ago, using this prompt from the Writers Digest website:Write a short story, of 700 words or fewer, that begins with the following line of dialogue: “You don’t have enough points, sir.”


”You don’t have enough points, sir.” I apologized to the small boy who had tried to buy a bottle of cheap perfume with the points on a store loyalty card. He looked around ten years old and I couldn’t help being reminded of Oliver Twist, by the boy’s skinny frame, tatty old clothes and timid expression.
“You need 480 points to buy this, but you only have 120.” I explained sympathetically.
“That’s ok,” the boy replied, looking disappointedly at the floor. “I guess I’ll just leave it then.” He took back the card with a small hand, left the perfume bottle at the counter and…

Harmony in Hiroshima by Life in Camelot (BLW Contributor)

Life In Camelot

This week’s blog topic from Where’s My Backpack blog – Travel theme: Harmony

Hiroshima was in the news recently when Barack Obama made his visit there – the first US president to do so since the 1945 nuclear attack. This visit brought up the collective memories and consciousness of the horror that occurred almost 71 years ago, when according to the president’s speech, “the world was changed”.

His visit also highlighted the need for reconciliation between nations previously at war, and a future that relies on harmony.

I visited Hiroshima just 2 months prior to the president’s visit as part of the itinerary of Queen Elizabeth’s 2016 World Cruise and of course I expected to see the peace park, memorial museum and the bomb site, that includes the famous A-bomb dome, (preserved as a symbol of peace), to remind the world of the events of August 6th 1945.

Lean On Me by Think One Change (BLW Contributor)

Think One Change

This has been running through my head all day. I love this song and the words.

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have faith you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won’t let show

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be…

Are You A Big Dreamer Or Small Dreamer? (BLW Contributor)

Michael J. Fite

“It’s best to dream big and have big goals so that you can have an unlimited ceiling in your life than to dream small and have small goals to where reach a limited ceiling in your life.” -Michael J. Fite

Keep this in mind when you find yourself trying to determine the size of your goals and dreams. To have a big dream or goal may be scary at first because you do not know how exactly you are going to get there, but it allows for you to have something to grow into, learn from, and help create new possibilities. When you choose to have a small dream or goal, you can only go so far and it can limit you from seeing your true potential in life.

I have learned in my existence that people who dream big seem to be crazy to those who dream small. I have…

Happy National Hot Fudge Sundae Day!!!

Be Like Water

Hot-Fudge-Sundae-Cupcakes

Today is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day! A sundae is the perfect treat to enjoy on a summer night. The cold ice cream paired with a warm, chocolate topping is one of the most delicious combinations known to man. Add some nuts, whipped cream, and cherries on top and you’ve got yourself a world-famous dessert!

The Guinness Book of World Records has documented several record-setting sundaes. For example, the most expensive sundae can be ordered at Serendipity 3 in New York City for the hefty sum of $1000. In 2009, the Kids Club in Brunswick, Georgia created the world’s longest sundae. It measured over 130 feet long!

Average, Ordinary & Boring by Spearfruit (BLW Contributor)

In my very first post ‘Hello world, this is my blog‘, I wrote the following –

This is my very first post. What should I write that may be of interest to others?  Not much and then again maybe I do have many things I can write about.  I am an ordinary person, just like many others who live ordinary lives and do ordinary things.  I have many opinions about the everyday stuff, some important and some not so important.

On my ‘About Me’ page, I wrote the following –

Most of us have average lives, filled with disappointments and failures and through life we have issues to deal with due to events and other people and with ourselves. So, what makes my life more special than others? Well nothing really. The difference is this is my life that I am writing about.

Why you gonna take me seriously if I don’t show you that I’m in charge of myself? That I’m no joke. You ain’t gonna respect me until you know that what I say is for real. —Samantha, a 14-year-old girl

There ain’t nothing more convincing than a good punch. —Lakeesha, a 16-year-old girl

This girl tried to really mess me up once. She brought three other girls with her. I knew I was gonna get it, so I cracked her on the side of her face with this can that was on the ground. They thought I was so crazy they just picked up their friend and left me alone. —Victoria, a 15-year-old girl

Fighting is about image. It’s about showing you’re no punk. I know I don’t rule the world, but I can feel like I do, make you think I do. Fighting is independence. I beat someone up…

Bringing home the Bacon by Drag the Pen (BLW Contributor)

Dear Readers,

Here is something to crew on.

e63a_bacon_wallet_inhand

Society consist of the nuclear family, meaning two adults and their children and throw in a pet or two. Some how its been established that man’s duty is to bring home the bacon. Why? Because he is the head of the family.

Question, if the wife of this nuclear family earns more money compared to her spouse, Does this means that she is now the head of the  family? There are countless husband, boyfriends etc., who are not comfortable with a women  earning a bigger pay check than they do.

Does this mean that a man identifies his position in his home based on his earning power? And what does this say for a woman who earns less?

What say You?
