    6/11/2021 1:07:06 PM, by CEMOSES2

    5/30/2021 1:56:10 PM, by AUTUMNAGATE

    I chose team Scarlet Dragons as my first choice because I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones. Daenerys in Game of Thrones is the mother of dragons and she tamed them. But I also think of heroes and heroines that fight and slay dragons. Dragons usually guard their treasure sometimes in a cave (su... Read more

    A friend of mine died at 60 from cancer after a seventeen year battle with cancer. Her death was not "unexpected". However, I feel totally broken up.

I find have a "healthy" sweet from time to time does tame a sweet tooth. However, often I have no self control and will just eat th... Read more
