    I know it's way past the 1st of January but it's not too late to write my new year resolutions! One common phrase that people use is "Life is short". I would rebuke that with "But it may be longer than you think". While I believe that we should live in the present, I also believe that...

    Many people abandon their pets and dogs. "It requires much effort to keep a large dog, which needs a lot of food and exercise. Many people get puppies because they want to follow a fashion, without being prepared to take care of them when they grow up." I think the same thing is happe...
