  • Odd that endless completely inane comments are permitted, while witty tongue-in-cheek comments, which are somewhat critical are deleted completely… Need more emojis, apparently, or perhaps a county permit…

    (Compot is a composting method, while a Kompot, is a refreshing non-alcoholic drink.)

  • Well, I have a moratorium on arguing with certain individuals, and primarily upon arguing with the editor…

    Useful news is another thing that is in the eye of the beholder, and, the amusing news, is always with us, and is the amusement from reading and creating inane comments…

    I know you love the Mateel, so I will shut up now… Thanks for all you do!
