The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Fornications

As I promised via Facebook yesterday ... Fornications !

Just as a matter of interest, fornications  [Late Latin fornicr, fornict-, from fornix, fornic-vault, vaulted cellar, brothel  ]  are the arches that you may find in, for instance, a vault, crypt or perhaps a church or cathedral. 

Nothing whatsoever to do with what you may have come looking for!

    1. Slip it into the next conversation you have in a church.

      That might go down well.
