    I will miss Freddie, I had many good conversations with him. It seems ironic on the heals of his give peace a chance contest that it is a lack of peace that caused his departure. I sincerely hope he changes his mind and returns. What ever anyone can say against him the one thing that is undeniable is his authenticity, also I have never seen a negative comment come from Freddie.

  1. Date: 6/12/2013 11:16:00 PM more thing. I just HAVE to quote my favorite Bible author, Paul: Will you allow me? "The very fact that you have lawsuits among you (or blogs, or comments, or poems) means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? (IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO DO THAT! TO BE WRONGED AND TAKE IT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO KEEP PEACE!) Why not rather be cheated? (spoken ill of). I Corinthians 6:7- If only we could. If only...Great blog, Becca....lovely poem! :) I know your heart! This too shall pass....

    Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:6- EVERY effort to keep peace. That means sometimes being wronged and saying, if I do something about it, it will make matters worse. I haven't always been the better person because I'm "thin skinned". People, this place is a life line for me. I need it. I BELONG! This situation has really made me sad because it's taken the GLOW off this place I thought was perfect! But perfection is overrated. We need to be REAL. We are ALL prone to mistakes. So, let bygones be bygones. Apologies to all from me. If Freddie has enough friends here, he'll come back. We live and learn. I need this place! We all do!

    Oh....and your poem is lovely, Becca. The idea of yours is a good one. Freddie always left nice comments on my work when he stopped by it....I think he was a good fella...

    Stopped in to see what was happenin' here. I've seen a lot of misunderstandings happen lately. That's unfortunate because I think most have better intentions that what may come across on the page. I love all o' ya'll....and I hate that I might have lost a friendship or two here over something that really should have never been an issue...I tend to stop and think a little more now before I post a comment on a blog...ha...anyhow...maybe time really will heal wounds. I hope so, but for's dark and I'm goin' frog catchin'...mmmm...frog legs tomorrow. Can I get an amen on frog legs?

    Becca, this excerpt of your poem is beautiful. I hope (somehow) Freddie will get to read it. I think it would be a really nice idea for you to "pick up the torch" and finish his contest.

    surely we are not in kindergarten? all I know is that two interesting characters (one of whom is a dear friend) have withdrawn their work from the site today, and it is really sad...there's plenty of room on this site to accommodate all the many different personalities and viewpoints so it's time people learnt to respect each other's different opinions and became more tolerant of one another's quirks and flaws, and if people can't do that then just focus on those you get on with and steer clear of those you don't, what could be more simple?

    Wait a minute, in despite of the homonymy, I don't agree with you, PD. I use to laugh MAO at the blogs : D Certain bloggers, when they're fighting (directly, indirectly, or "subliminally"), are very witty, clever, resourceful ... and funny, of course! You are one of them and I really enjoy your ingenious blogs. Frank, Craig, Chris ... are also part of my selected group of Fav-bloggers. : D I can't help laughing!! ... when you fight, you're hilarious. One of the main problems here is that people get offended so easily... many Soupers are hyper-sensitive to any kind of criticism (and insults, of course!). Peace, Love and "Thick Skin"!! Ruben.

    Message: Hi Linda, I would like to thank you for your support but I decided to delete my account. I know that I am not wanted by some few, and I cannot take this hatred anymore. Keep healthy. Sincerely Freddie

    For the love of God, can you not see why he left. I got word from Alfred, this morning, I lashed out at the reason he left. Becca, if you only knew why he left!!!!!!! He was pushed the limit this morning. By the actions of 2 men, one who posted a blog, in provoking the audience. and the other defending the situation...... but that is what the blogger wanted. Poor Cyndi was the object in a blog, so vile. the blog turned my fanny around. Never have i loathed a man with so much passion. I myself was so hurt someone would blog about her the way they did. What happened to Alfred & Cyndi was yesterdays news.... but, today the decided to bring up the issue turning pain back on the soup. purposely

    Thanks for the blog and I'm sorry if Mr. Vassalo felt the need to leave. Hopefully, he'll make his way back and post his poetry. I like your poem, Becca, and I'm sure it would have placed high! Awesome. Maybe someone else will pick up Mr. Vassalo's torch and open a contest about peace so that the poems created can gain the thumbs up they deserve.
