About Ralphie:


Please allow me to interslice myself:

I am the RAB-man, the master of drivel. They say I have the Midas twitch. They call me the Midas twat, the Grand Ducat, the Lord of fools´gold, the Quadruple quibbler, the Knobby nibbler, the Roundabout ruminator, the Faux pasta chef.

In one word, well… in two actually: Modesty Itself. Let me entertain you, confound you and hound you, laugh with you and fart at you, tickle you and spit at you.

I am Julius Teaser: I came, I wrote and I was censured!
I am Bart Anthony, I got Cleopatra‘s maid!
I am Alex, the Not-so-great!
I am Don’t Juan, the hapless lover!
I am Platato, great thunker of mashed thoughts.

Among my illustrious forebears I can count Camilla The Hen and Genghis Couldn’t!

My ‘Tittbits’ are worth a read: my very own zany, loony, weird and  funny mini-stories. And ‘The Willie Way’, a persiflage on Genesis.

I’ve seen that I have a lot of traffic from all over the world, so here goes:

Welcome all! Bienvenus à tous! Wilkommen Alle! Welkom iedereen! Selamat Datang!  Bienvenido a todos! בָּרוּךְ הַבָּא! Добро пожаловать!  ᑐᙵᓱ (Tunngahugit/Tunngasugit!) and so on.

      1. Yup, with a story called “The Civilised Tea Party”. Swan Morrison is running a nice friendly website over there; he just needs some input from Greenland to complete the set.


      2. I’ll go and have a read later on! I like what Swan is doing. Been trying to coax someone from Greenland to come here by posting a ‘welcome’ note in their language,but no go.


      3. They say that if you encounter a grizzly, you should back away slowly whilst avoiding eye contact 🙂

        Another good story from that anthology is “Go to Sleep” by Justine M Dunn.


  1. Hello Ralph,

    I hope it is not too late to wish you a wonderful New Year. May 2013 bring you more happiness, love, and success. Many blessings and much love to you, Ralph.. 🙂

  2. Hi Ralphie,

    I would like to thank you for following my blog. I hope the short stories and poetry I post in my blog do not disappoint you.

    Thank you again, many blessings and much love to you. 🙂

    #PS: I notice you have German and other languages, so if you’d like to add to the ‘welcome’ bit above with something Indonesian, you could add, “Selamat Datang”. 🙂


  3. A possible antidote to the glamour image of Cleopatra is provided by an article in Smithsonian. As the authors of that article, which tacks back and forth successfully between the politics Cleopatra navigated and modern and historical fascination with her, put it, “ancient historians never characterized Cleopatra as a great beauty, and in her time she was not considered a romantic heroine”.


  4. True. Cleopatra was a personality of bravery and valor. The role of women in society has been changing from ancient periods. From hooking up in just four corridors of house to flying in a spacecraft, women are representing the topmost position in the society. Be it political leader, judge or doctor, women are meeting shoulder to shoulder with men in each and every area.


  5. Hey Ralphie! I just wanted to stop by and say a big thanks for re-blogging my post today!! You are the best! Your blog is one to watch I can tell so I will be keeping my colourful (you’ve seen my header ;)) eye on you!

    Be good 🙂
