Topic: Updating badges to reflect reality
Posted: 24 May 2017 17:24

I've never been a big advocate for badges, rating, and/or awards based on numerical significance. It tends to become a cliquish quid pro quo process. However, I think Larry has a good idea in that since the system is already in place, the bar should be set at a reasonable height so that more rather than less members could achieve it.

I would think that 1000 views would get a badge. Therafter, 2500, 5000, 10,000, etc. A system of colored stars could be assigned to a badge as each level is obtained, ie, 5000 views could be a badge with a red star, signifying 6000 views.

One other opportunity for the site... there appears to be quite a wide margin to the right of our avatars in the forums. Perhaps our badges could be shown there as well so that other members could have a quick reference to the achievements of others.

Topic: DirtyMartini - Alan W. Jankowski - has passed away
Posted: 14 Mar 2017 11:13

When I began my journey into online posting of my stories and poems back in 2007, Alan was the very first person who greeted me. We've been friends ever since. He was one of the most energetic and prolific writers I've ever seen. Over the years I've watched him mature and develop into a sage and wise mentor to anyone who sought him out. I am heartbroken and vulnerable right now. I look forward to catching up to my old friend someday.

I hereby request that the works and history of DirtyMartini not be removed from this site.

Topic: INSPIRATION NEED/WANTED Help me please!
Posted: 27 Feb 2017 09:31

I'm having the annoying problem of being able to think of things to write, but physically unable to write them.

I'm having the same problem, Andrew. That's why I haven't been on here for awhile. Hopefully some answers this week.

Air Rage

So many recent headlines about air travel lately and none of them have been good. When I was a boy, air travel was special. People used to dress up in their finery and look forward to getting from here to there in hours instead of days. Planes were never full. There was a flight to wherever you wanted to go. The stewardesses would bring you hot meals and cold drinks. They walked up and down...

Broken Parts

A few weeks ago I had to go into the doctor's office for my bi-annual epidural in my lower back. A cocktail of lidocaine, cortisone and various and sundry magical concoctions that let me maneuver my manly bulk with less pain. As I jumped up on the table to wait, I got a severe twinge in my right shoulder from my torn rotator cuff from my too many sports days. My left is torn as well, but...

Ol' St. Dick

Good Old St. Nick, (Who is a bit of a dick), Thought this Christmas, He would just play a trick. It didn't matter how nice you were, Or who you hugged or who you kissed. Santa was changing the game, And using only his naughty list. Ironic or inevitable, How you see it depends, But isn't it odd, that Santa's naughty list, Is a perfect match to Dreamcatcher's friends? ...

The Old Oak

She stood regally for fifty plus years I am told. The last 10 years on my watch. Guarding the front southwest corner of our garage. Towering a majestic 70 feet into the air with a drip line 20 feet in all directions from the trunk. Home to many of nature's creatures. Squirrels, birds, a hawk on occasion, and two different raccoons would climb her silently at night causing my motion...

Who invented this language that we speak? Does a bucket leek or leak? Why is there a K in knife or knee? And who the hell spelled psychiatry? English is spelled just how it sounds. Yet everything else is meant to confound. I before E except in weigh? OK, fine, but end in GH you say? An ' contracts but a … omits? Who's to say what punctuation fits? Does a person have a sole or soul? Maybe...

Soups On!

Boil your hen, cut up in pieces Legs and wings and breasts and thighs Add crushed garlic so the flavor increases Eight cups of broth brings a smile to your eyes While you wait let's chop some stuff Carrots and onions and mushrooms are nice Celery and brussel sprouts are never enough Even a cup of brown or white rice Set your hen aside to cool And add your veggies to the broth Intense...

He didn't think I saw him but I did. Out of the corner of my eyes I just caught sight of him as he turned the corner. He had the stealth and quickness of a cat. I took off running. He wouldn't get away this time. It was always the same. He cut and slithered through the crowd as he tried to escape me. Younger and faster he traveled at the speed of light. But my old age gave me wisdom...

Doc Johnson's Rules of Life

No matter where you stand, anything dropped in the kitchen will always kick, bounce, twirl, and roll under the refrigerator. The amount of sugar, creamer, salt or pepper in those little paper containers will always be just a tad less than you need. No matter how much battery you have left on your cellphone, it will always die 10 minutes before you absolutely need it. Whenever you need...

I remember the night when it started. The dark mass that haunted me in my room. My friends and I were playing tag along the edge of the woods. It was becoming dark, and the noises in the forest began. Crickets chirping. Toads bellowing. Owls hooting. The fireflies lighting their paths in flight. As we walked home, the brightest one flew close, and that's when I grabbed her. I held her loose...

"I love you," she said "Forever and always and a day" But she meant that for another instead I was so easy to betray. She took all of my hopes And played with all of my dreams I was sliding down her slippery slope Just a pawn in all of her schemes. It wasn't done in anger or spite Her heart just belonged to another When discovered she was so contrite Between my love and his, she still chose...
