'Lingua Franca', as I understand it, means a 'third language', or a 'created language' that enables two, or more, people to communicate in the event that their 'mother-tongue' doesn't.

Something like 'Esperanto' may fit this scenario, although from my own 'Latin days' of 40 years ago, I seem to remember that Latin itself was a 'lingua franca'.

May I ask you a question? You, along with John, asked me what was the point of this blog. My question to you is, what's the point of ANY blog?

CLM blogs, as I see them, are for the purposes of information; entertainment; knowledge, and experience.

If you agree with that, then how does this blog not fit into any of those categories?

You may like to consider this blog as the first in a series of 3.

Your 'lesson' will begin, and I have no intention of failing to teach.

Watch this 'space', my friend.

That's the problem, my friend. You are too predictable!

I'm going to be nice to you. It's entirely up to you if you do this or not, but you may learn something valuable if you spare yourself 30 minutes or so.

Go to my friend's website (

On the 'Home Page' you'll see a list of 'pages'.

There's one entitled 'The Devil's Playground'.

This is my page. There you will find all my work. Read the introduction and then feel free to click on any of the links.

Hopefully you'll thank me later.

Love and Light to you and your family.

@paulfox Do me a favour?  One's man's favour is another man's curse!  Such a page is enough to make me cringe and curdle.  The idea of gods is and will always remain an absurdity to me.  Thanks but no thanks.

"You are too predictable!"


If so, why did you say you were surprised, Paul!   (giggle)(giggle)

I hate to say this, but I have to. You are the epitome of everything that's wrong in the world.

I point you to a website in order to look at MY stuff, and you go off on some kind of 'rant' about 'God'. If you've read my blogs here you'll already know that I abhor religion. Where did I mention 'God'?

People are so stuck in their own belief system that they refuse to even consider the fact they may be wrong - even just a little bit wrong. I'm not saying you are 'wrong', all I was expecting was for you to have enough of an open-mind to take a look.

I nearly forgot. What makes you think your idea of 'god' is the same as everyone else's idea?

Can you define 'god'?

@oldghost You think, travel and learn. You can evaluate if a website has anything to contribute to the quality of your life. I can't see a problem with those attributes. The world would be a much better place if everyone had those attributes.

@ paulfox: Oh how quaint it is to hear people ingenuously say things like 'I hate to say this'! Gave me a good giggle, guffaw, even an involuntary snort.  I granted 30 seconds perusing your index and one page - full well knowing I'd be gasping at the gruesome drivel, and so I quickly left. Each to their own.  I vaguely recall a similar reaction reading some (a very little) of a conspiracy blog here. I imagine that was yours?  You are entitled to your views as I am entitled to laugh at them without malice.

While people like you are laughing at people like me, people like me are feeling sad, and sorry, for people like you.
