An Aesop fable re-told by Andrew Wright

’Let’s go to the market and let’s sell the donkey.’ said the man.
So the man and his son took the donkey to the market.  They walked along the road and the donkey walked behind them.
A young man saw the man and his son and their donkey.  He laughed, ’You’re crazy!  Why don’t you ride on your donkey?’
’You’re right!’  said the man and he got on the donkey.  The donkey walked in front and the man’s son walked behind.
A young woman saw the man riding on the donkey and his young son walking behind.  She shouted, ’That’s not fair!  You are big and strong and that poor little boy is tired.  He must ride on the donkey. Not you!’
’You’re right!’  said the man.  So the man got off the donkey and he told his son to get on the donkey.
The donkey walked in front and the father walked behind.
A rich farmer saw the boy riding on the donkey and the father walking behind.  ’Heh!  You’ve got a donkey but you are walking.  That’s ridiculous!’
’You’re right.  It is ridiculous!’ said the man and so he got on the donkey and sat behind his son.
A poor old woman saw the man and his son riding on the donkey. ’That’s cruel!  That is so cruel!  Poor donkey!  Get off it at once!  It is the donkey’s turn.  YOU must carry the donkey!’
’Yes, you’re right.  It’s cruel!’  said the man. So the man and his son got off the donkey.
Then the man tied the donkey’s feet togther and then he got a long branch and he put it between the donkey’s legs and then the man and his son picked up the donkey and carried him to the market.
’Poor donkey!’ everbody shouted.  ’Put that donkey down!  Don’t tie its legs! Let it walk!’
’Oh, no!’ said the man.  ’We wanted to make everbody happy! Now everybody is angry!’
So the man cut the rope.  The donkey stood up and then it ran away. Try to make everybody happy and you make nobody happy!

    Hi Andrew,

    I was just getting ready to do a storytelling session for a school today -(Pri 1 & 2) when I checked out your website. Oddly enough, the stories I tell today have to be linked to Total Defence. I prefer to add a little humour when the theme is so specific. Perhaps, I will tell the Old Man, His Son and Their Donkey in my own way. (I first came across this story in India.) Also, another story that I will share with you, once I have it down in text.

    Cheers!
    Rosemarie

    I liked your blog, I have created a link for your blog, in my blog, under kids corner :)

    thanks and take care..subodh

    Thanks….for this Story…..

    I was not able to exactly recall the story…
    wanted to quote this as an example in my real life situation,……
    I got to the site from google….by typing “father son and donkey story”

    Now I am good….

    Thanks!!!

    Hi Andrew,

    Do you remember me? We met eachother in the Air India flight travelling back from Kathmandu to London. The fact that I am writing this feedback would let you know that I have been to your website.

    I had read this story before but was a long one. Your story is quite precise and has a clear message where there is something to learn from.

    You know what? I will read out to poeple in the nursing home.

    Cheers.

    Dhruba

    • 6 Andrew Wright March 27, 2011 at 10:08 pm

      Dhruba, of course I remember you and it was a memorable journey, wasnt it? I wrote to you once at the nursing home…and wished you well with the ideas we talked about ie the stories of the people in your care. I am VERY happy you visited my site which is a little bit like my home…except I cant give you a cup of tea when you come in. Please call in again. And please tell me how YOU are getting on with YOUR story collecting. Best wishes to you and to your wife. Andrew

      Happy you like it…I think it is a one of the Hoja stories. He was a Turkish story man and many, many stories are attributed to him. Andrew

    Hi Andrew

    This is a very interesting story in our lives. Andrew,we’ve got a big challenge in our life.
    When we do our business we don’t need to consider what people say about us. I still remember when I send my wife to school, all my friends were complaining, saying no don’t do this, this woman is going to leave you. I never listen to them. My wife finished studies and she is working now. in fact when you run a marathon , don’t wave to people next to the road, just press towards a goal.
    I thank you
    Themba

    • 12 Andrew Wright December 27, 2011 at 1:31 pm

      Themba! I am very happy you like the story…please pass it on to other people…that is how stories live…by being told. You are VERY right to have supported your wife in going to school…we are so enriched when everyone around us is fulfilled. Happy New Year! Andrew

    They claim that bananas are a fantastic food to assist any dieter, but
    they are not magic. There is a new diet craze in Japan and it has created a shortage of Banana’s form the shelves. For lunch enjoy 3 more bananas and for a mid lunch snack have one more banana.

    I have read so many articles or reviews about the
    blogger lovers except this post is genuinely a fastidious post, keep it up.

  12. 19 http://Www.thewhir.com/profile/chillact3 June 18, 2013 at 11:08 am

    I want to encourage you continue your great
    writing, have a nice evening!
    We absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for.

    Does one offer guest writers to write content in your case?
    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome weblog!
    We stumbled over here from a different web page and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking into your web page again.
    Everyone loves what you guys are usually up too. Such clever work and coverage! Keep up the superb works guys I’ve
    added you guys to blogroll.
    Hello I am so glad I found your webpage, I really found you by error, while I was browsing on Google
    for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design),
    I don’t have time to read it all at the moment but I have saved it and also included
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more,
    Please do keep up the superb work.
    Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.

    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material.
    Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.
    Greetings! I’ve been following your site for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Dallas Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent work!
    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever
    run into any browser compatibility issues? A couple of
    my blog audience have complained about my
    blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with? I’m having some minor security issues with my latest site and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?
    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
    everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thank you!
    Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
    Great site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really
    like to be a part of community where I can get responses from other
    experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Bless you!
    Howdy! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give
    a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your blog posts.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go
    over the same topics? Appreciate it!
    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a
    blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice practices and
    we are looking to exchange solutions with others, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if
    interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your site. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Kudos!
    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

    But think of if you added some great visuals or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
    is excellent but with images and clips, this blog
    could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Great blog!
    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few
    simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got
    your theme. Thanks a lot
    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Many thanks
    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a
    lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.
    Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss and would really like
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

    Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with
    us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting
    this to my followers! Fantastic blog and amazing design and style.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to
    seeing it grow over time.
    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking
    and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I
    look forward to new updates and will share this
    site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
    Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using
    WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome site!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
    Right now it sounds like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
    Excellent post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very grateful
    if you could elaborate a little bit further.
    Bless you!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin
    for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Cheers!
    Good day! This is my first visit to your blog!
    We are a group of volunteers and starting a new project in
    a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us
    valuable information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve
    had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Good day! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading
    this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page
    to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.

    Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You definitely know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against
    it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Excellent work!
    Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but
    after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely
    glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
    Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your
    content. Please let me know. Cheers
    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal
    but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not
    sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Cheers
    Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find
    a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Appreciate it!
    I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up!
    I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later on. Cheers
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.

    cheers
    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both
    show the same outcome.
    Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
    to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge
    to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
    Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.

    I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything
    I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to
    rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thanks!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
    Hi there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 4!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Keep up the superb work!
    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all
    that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say great blog!

    • 20 Andrew Wright June 18, 2013 at 12:33 pm

      Good Heavens! What an extraordinary posting! I cannot really believe you wrote it all to express your response to my blog! And you say at the end you lost it all…well…I am sure it arrived here! Andrew

    How to get over being dumped and get your ex boyfriend back
    will require you to make him feel the pain and reverse the
    dumping so that he feels like he is the one being rejected.
    This will only get her back up and will probably drive her further away from you.
    If your ex does want to get back with you, playing hard to get
    won’t hurt anything (as long as you don’t
    overdo it).

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.
    Superb Blog!

    blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet
    hosting provider at a honest price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

    Awesome website you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!
    Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics? Thank you so much!
    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to exchange techniques with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your weblog.
    You have some really good posts and I think I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Awesome blog!
    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks
    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue
    or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks
    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
    Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.
    Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to check it out. I’m
    definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and wonderful design and style.
    Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally
    confused .. Any tips? Kudos!
    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites
    for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog!
    I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your blog on my
    iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog
    loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good site!
    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
    Right now it seems like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve
    read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
    Wonderful post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Appreciate it!
    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
    Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of
    volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us beneficial information to
    work on. You have done a extraordinary job!
    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s
    driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back
    often!
    Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thank you
    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying
    for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m
    thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
    Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
    I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the
    road. Cheers
    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks
    Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but
    it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent
    choice of colors!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon
    but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to
    stop hackers?
    Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new
    updates.
    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on
    this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Heya! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!
