Favorite President made up some really cool words.

Don't “Belittle” TJ the MAN.

In 1788, Thomas Jefferson was so inspired while writing about the natural beauty of his home state, Virginia, that he just had to make up a whole new word to describe it. “The Count de Buffon believes that nature belittles her productions on this side of the Atlantic.” Boom: “Belittle” was born. But Jefferson didn’t stop there. The third U.S. President gets credit for more than 100 new words such as: lengthily, monotonously, and (randomly enough) pedicure.

It is up to Moderate Muslims (the vast majority) to put the Islamist Radicals (minority) in their place, so Muslims can have an appropriate place on our planet.

[I have to agree with Ben on this.... PC is just getting in the way of progress.  Organized religions need to focus on what is best for our planet, not what is in their best interests as world leaders]

Our unique AirBnB Symbol... Pineapple for Hospitality :)

JP And Sharon
 Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, United States
Meeting new people in our travels as guests and as hosts are our greatest AirBnB adventures. From Spiritual Healers in California to Yoga instructors (giving us a class in our living room) to ministers sharing their life stories. Gifts from pictures of cats, to sketches of our cottage, to gourmet coffee and greens from their garden bestowed upon us at check-in are all our adventures and great memories of out time with AirBnB. The symbol of the pineapple is very Southern thing, a symbol of hospitality. You see pineapples on gates and on mantles in the living room as a gesture of hospitality.
