The Cottage on the Moor is a place where I'll keep a fire going on cold winter nights and a breeze flowing through the windows on steamy summer days. There will be a "cup of warm" waiting for you to stimulate your mind. I'll try to keep it fresh by adding something every week or two. So come often. I hope you find worth your while.

The Ads Must Go On - Dateline, Nov. 13, 2015
by Jim Rapp
The French are bleeding, dying,
as the world is watching
via Dateline’s Special Edition,
The somber men and women trying
to project gravitas,
the importance of the situation.
But the ads must keep on flying,
sold in special batching
months before this conflagration
Priced, cued and left lying
until the largest crowd is watching;
gotta beat the competition.
Autos, burgers, French Fries frying,
bring us news of Frenchmen dying;
no horror stops the ads from flying.
