    So this is Suzette Prime too?...I see I have some studying to do!...Sounds like the rest of the world needs to become 'Ubuntu'...Your 'About' section was fascinating too...especially the part about our actions affecting others...I wrote a poem on that subject a long time ago...About how each of us set off small 'chain reactions' so to speak and a single world or action by anyone could possibly affect the course of history - Tim

    this is an excellent write on Ubuntu. I had not heard of it before, but it makes perfect sense! And yes, I agree with you about limericks. Either funny or naughty funny should be acceptable. I think mine are not always THAT funny but hopefully just enough whimsy in them to elicit a smile.
