Generational

Few weeks back my seven year old and I went to a classical tabla performance. Before the concert the artist talked about his late father. He talked about his humble upbringing in a dusty village in Maharashtra. He recalled his father taking him to classical music conerts in Bombay - an overnight trip which they could barely afford. These concerts mostly extended late into the night, and they often missed the last train they needed to catch to get back home. At the train station his father scrambled the last remaining coins from his pocket to buy his son a meal while he remained hungry. Then they would both huddle together and sleep on the railway platform waiting for the train next morning.

While he remembered his late father his eyes welled, his lips quivered, and his voice cracked with emotion. Overwhelmed by memories he paused a moment, held his composure, and started the performance.

On our way back home that day, my son and I were talking about the performance. Sriram liked everything about the concert. He loved the front row seats, enjoyed all the numbers, was happy to see his friends there. But there was one question that still lingered in his mind.
"Why did he weep before the concert when he talked about his dad ?"

Military pilot who had sex with an 11 year old boy when he was 17 year-old virgin!!!
A JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL WHO HAD SEX WITH AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENT!!! He needs to be on a sexual preditor list.
How long did he masterbate and think about having sex with this pre-pubescent child? In boot camp? Into his flight training? 20, 25 YEARS OLD??? OLDER???
"Creepy rotten grape attached to an otherwise normal bunch."
He was never was very smart. He didn't figure out how prostitution worked until he was in the military:::
You don't want to pay someone to LET you suck HIS dick. You should have waited for the child to suck YOUR dick before you let him drive your car.

Awww... I love the innocence of children.

by the way, women's every belongings when they go outside are in their handbags. If they lose it, they lose everything they brought. Now, companies offer handbag insurance to cover for that so it would be a smart investment to apply for one.

如何預防骨鬆?楊再興建議,停經後婦女及年滿65歲的男性,應至醫院進行骨質密度檢測。

檢測部位包括兩邊髖關節、脊髓共3個部位,需自費1200至1500元,若有經濟上的考量。

年輕人可檢測脊髓,老人則檢測髖關節部位,評估是否需要藥物治療,若確診可透過荷爾蒙、副甲狀腺素,或雙磷酸鹽等藥物治療。
