(RoadNews) Memories of a Future LifeMate

Tribute to Og: Remember Sayward, from the Landlore post "Escaping Life on Replay"? This wandering wayfarer has just self-published her very first book earlier this year, a sci-fi epic that journeys in both time and space, and in a specific blend of love, adventure, and suspense. She calls it: "Tribute to Og: Memories of a Future LifeMate". You really need to read up on the extended description and check out the book.

10 Life Lessons People Learn Too Late: This one is very much related to an earlier post here on Landlore--"The 5 Most Common Regrets of the Dying". But this time around, it's "10 Life Lessons People Learn Too Late". You'll need to read the full article for the complete descriptions, but I'll at least include the titles here:
This moment is your life
A lifetime isn’t very long
The sacrifices you make today will pay dividends in the future
When you procrastinate, you become a slave to yesterday
Failures are only lessons
You are your most important relationship
A person’s actions speak the truth
Small acts of kindness can make the world a better place
Behind every beautiful life, there has been some kind of pain
Time and experience heals pain

Dumpster Diving: DENIED!: And to bring this down to as real as it gets, this is a completely new level of fukkduppedness going on right here. Hundreds of poor people were lining up outside of dumpsters in Augusta, Georgia, so that they could eat the only food they could afford--trash. They were all evicted and the dumpsters were guarded until they could be taken to a landfill where the food added to all the other garbage in that rotting pit in the ground. Police were actually called in to restrain the poor and to take them away. The full details are [Here on GlobalResearch].

The Song of the Day: It's extremely rare that I post a "song of the day" that is NOT available for free download. Today's an exception. I keep hearing one incredible song after another from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack. Last Friday, these young ladies Tna and Kia made only a single song suggestion--"Back to Black" by Beyonce and Andre 3000 (from Outkasts). I've held off until I got a moment to look it up, and that moment came earlier today. Ever since that moment, the song's been on repeat, with these two musicians turning the original Amy Winehouse song into a truly evil and menacing work of art that is beautifully threatening from start to finish. Tune in!
