  • Phenomenal Cat has 2 sober years!!!!

    Huge Congratulations, PC, ON 2 PHENOMENAL SOBER YEARS!!!!!!!!!!

    You have been such a great presence on the WQD.

    Your 'voice' is invariably, tolerant, calm, rational, open, accepting and forgiving and yet you are not afraid to tell it like it is when circumstances demand.

    Is there a kinder voice on the WQD? I wonder.

    Is there another who attracts such a wide range of different personalities on the WQD? Again, I wonder.

    Is it because you are funny and intelligent, or that you enjoy the sports talk and have great taste in music?

    Is it because you are searingly honest about your own experiences and no less honest in how you report the sense you make of these?

    I guess it is all of these reasons and more.

    Shark said it best when once he noted that if you have a failing, it is in not knowing what a great man you are!

    Congratulations!! May next year be better still !!!

    What an occasion life is!

    Lest I forget: ''So today June 7th 2014, the day has finally arrived, I am done, there is nothing that needs to be done, nothing that needs to be said, no place that I must go, no paper that I must write (I reason that whatever it is - it will get written; if I don't write it someone else will and it might be a nice opportunity for them), no itch to scratch nor wound to bandage, nothing to explain, nothing to justify, no silliness. Just ocean upon ocean of time and opportunity laid out before me..........''

    'There is nothing that cannot be overcome. There is no limit.' Lao Tzu
