Eric commented on Barbare's blog post The Best Lines Ever Said By A Man
"True sensitivity is not gender specific. Real love comes from the heart. As far as I know, love isn't defined by an X or Y chromosome. Men and women express feelings and emotions so differently. As a man, watching my…"

Eric commented on Anah Sid ©'s blog post Badly Bothered by Ignorance
"Ignorance is simply a lack of education or enlightenment upon any given subject. Ignorant people may have a chance at becoming better people if they have the ability to listen and learn. Stupidity is entirely a different subject.…"

Eric commented on Jai's blog post God..!!!
"Jai, In Christianity, a concept of God is an extension of your own consciences. In my belief, you only get what you give. In the carnal sense, most of us (no matter where we reside) are selfish by nature. The God of our choice may dictate how…"

Eric commented on Sara's blog post why we need old-age homes?
"It's a sad situation. I'm not privy to all cultures and how the elderly are treated in different countries. Even in America, some "fall between the cracks". In my opinion, no family member, no matter how old, gets left behind. We…"

WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?

Posted on October 16, 2014 at 6:07 11 Comments

Some of you may question the title of this latest entry. Incase you're wondering, "What makes you tick?" is an English expression (idiom) that loosely translates to mean, "What's your reason for living? What gives you motivation to wake up in the morning? What's your true passion in life and why?".

If the question were literally translated, I'd be writing about pre digital age mechanical clocks that make a "tick tock" sound.…

Writing Challenge: THE WORLD'S BIGGEST PROBLEM

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 6:08 5 Comments

Writing Challenge: Dinner Guest (WHO Would I Invite?)

Posted on July 12, 2014 at 4:30 5 Comments

I've been a member of English Club for about two years now. Anyone here WHO's ever met me knows that I'm a huge DR. WHO fan.

Some may ask why I'd chose such an eccentric fictional character as a dinner guest. He's not exactly notorious for having excellent table manners.…

Challenge Versus Fear In It's English Enterpritation. (American Style)

Posted on March 6, 2014 at 8:30 6 Comments

In the often "politically correct" language of American English, we sometimes exchange the word "fear" for the word "challenge"...

To many Americans, "challenge" just sounds better when motivating a good friend while encouraging them to face his or her "fears".

For a brief example, I'll give you two sentences. One is written in the negative context. The other contains the positive. Both…
