Yeah. My sis-in-law runs a company with 24 part-time emlopyees, most of them local mothers with growing children who work from home and fit the work in around their daily schedule looking after the kids.All the work is done via the internet (managing the PLoS journals, as it happens) and my sis-in-law communicates with her staff via IM almost exclusively.Without the flexibility of the working conditions, it would have been fair more difficult to find a workforce and build the business.

By the time that Bibo had the ring the nazgul were back. Besides,the books mention an endless storm (as in lightning) in the mountains surrounding mordor, and in "The Hobbit" the eagle's leader makes it clear that arrows can ill them with little trouble. Horde of orcs, anyone?

indeed, the wood worms will ultimately spam the foundations of the net and carbon will no longer exist in the universe while we claim it to be evil and hydrogen our friend. The Universe is made of Hydrogen and ignorance : Dobson.
I use your site as a place to find good examples for anyone who wants to participate in 55 Fiction Friday with me. I think I'd die of embarrassment if I had to submit mine for formal critique even though I would really love to know if they are any good. I love your 55s.
I had to delete this one and pop it back because of too many comments advertising dodgy drugs companies. Just for my reference, there were 1804 views when I deleted it, and only one comment which I will add back.

Having heard about 55 through another blog I decided to try It and now do one every Friday as do some of my fellow bloggers.I intend to use your picture as alink to your site as I want to make a list of 55 links if you object you can find me here:-
There are several things wrong with the logic of this story, but I'll just point out the most obvious. If the world had to pick one person to send back to save it, do you really think they would have picked Hitler?
If it had been 58 word stories, they would have been able to have tea and cream-cakes... In fact, in the original they had crumpets but I had to sacrifice that whole plot addition to save 2 words I am afraid.
*hops about in circles* I am the person who you updated the date on the bottom of the site for, and stopped emailing! *glares darkly* But I am showing people at school, this one, because it is nifty and morbid! *sits down* I should be TAing, like a good TA, but I'm not. Oh well. Math test to go to, give me a noose. *jumps off a bridge*
i get the idea that last commenter was probably jewish and just looking for something to complain about. there is no mistake historically since by 1996 there was a nation called israel. its a good story michael please don't branch out i like the 55 word stories !
