Blogging: All Dogs Must Be On Leashes and All Blogs Must Be In Niches. Phooey!

  Like the feminists of the sixties I refuse to be harnessed and have chosen to burn my niche. You must hear it at least once or twice a week. Maybe on an ad or, if you’re managed by a cliché lover,  in a management meeting. What? “Think outside the box”.

Daily Prompt: Sorry, I’m Busy – De Nile

Today’s Daily Prompt called for a picture of the Nile, so here’s a lovely shot from Wikipedia. What’s that? Not de Nile but denial.
