Hey Joe thank you

happy New year Everyone.

Great story and very good music and songs

'‘Freedom’s just another name for nothing left to lose'' wow I never thought about it but it is such a true line that applied to cult.

This line is from a song written in the early sixty by Kris Kristofferson Called Bobby McGee that Roger Miller made a big hit with it , Janis Joplin also had a big hit with it before she passed away in 1969, I put her version here because it is my wife's favorite song and interpretation.

Thanks for that Joe,

So true Robair. The deeper a person sinks into RSE the more they loose,
and the lower they crawl while thinking they fly!
Howz that saying go?..."You cannot soar with eagles, When your hang out with Turkeys".
and what is the Turkey destined for?

Happy New Year everyone,
Its New Years Day here in NZ.. So far so good :- )
THANK YOU everyone for all your EMF support during 2013.
Live long and prosper... :D
Here's my nominated song for 2014: On The Turning Away
PINK FLOYD "On The Turning Away"

Lyrics:

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we wont understand
Don't accept that whats happening
Is just a case of others suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away

Its a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting its shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that were all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
Its not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away

But he has nothing on at all, cried at last the whole people....
