Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. ~ MLK, Jr.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

  • The Galumphing of the Sith

    Cloudy and not quite as warm today. We made it to 79˚F. There's a chance of severe thunderstorms tonight. I was unable to write due to the extra CBD…
