Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Wonderful pictures, and a wonderful quote from Joan Collins.

    If you are in the UK, I think you can take a tour of the Morgan factory. I think you would be surprised at how they are made.

    BTW a series on Netflix I immensely enjoyed was Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in cars getting coffee . I think you would like it.

    I have read that the title of “On the Waterfront” was a change from the original since it was the same as a TV series at the time. Iv’e forgotten the rest of the story. Maybe it was supposed to be just “The Waterfront.”
