  • I have shared my home with a cat with a firm paw for 15 years now. She tells me when it is time to go to bed and when time to get up…and she certainly lets me know when it is time to feed, water, or change […]

    • Those poor cats in the video…ha! I think my cats pulled all of those stunts at one time or another.
      Cat’s are such a pain in the butt because they do what they want when they want and where they want and we let them.
      Your cat looks loved. Nice coat for a 15 year old cat.
      I have 2 cats…..I can’t post a pic on a reply so ill post their pic in a bit.
      I really was contemplating getting a puppy a few years ago but my sons at that time could not agree. One wanted a English Pit Bull….the other wanted a Huskey…and the 3rd wanted a shelter dog. So I ended up getting another kitten as a friend for my almost 12 year old cat. And I kick myself for doing that sometimes. She wants attention all of the time.

    • honestly, that is here 3-5 years ago, maybe a bit more now, but she still has pretty soft and fluffy fur. At one time I had something like 7 cats…I had a life-partner that couldn’t a cat on the street, or in a paint bucket as we found a little of kittens, that we ended up getting one out of the 4 with 3 other people getting 1 each.

      But since he died and i have been alone since 2006 I have done much better on the piling up of animals. I am thinking once she dies, I might get a dog…but for me, especially living in an apartment, it is more likely to be a Chih which I was raised with…or maybe a small poodle. But then I have had cats since 1991 and am really person anymore with them being more independent and less needy.

      But Patches is the exception to the rule about cats not coming to you when you called, because often she will. She is getting less likely lately because I think she is getting older, and maybe even slightly hard of hearing..or maybe she is just more stubborn with age. I hear that goes around….but I wouldn’t know only being 66 years old. Not old at all. LOL

  • Yes…I posted about this when it first came on TV but the second season is out and I think it is funnier and more entertaining.

    Has anyone seen this show yet?

    • I haven’t seen the show but I was part of a movie watching group for a while. We watched a different movie every week, and one week, this was the choice. The host had something like 25,000 movies so we would vote, as a group on what to watch from a particular category. One week the original movie happened to be the pick.

      It was funny in a very offbeat way. The phrase I remember best is the vampires are out and run into a group of werewolves. The two groups don’t get along. Anyway, one of the vampires says “yeech, I smell dog” as they pass by one another.

      I didn’t know it was a TV show. Where can it be found…netflix, amazon prime?? or is it on one of the regular stations somewhere. I can check amazon prime myself since i have that one. It looks like the updated tv version might be even funnier than the movie.

    • It is so funny. I watch it on FX on cable but they are showing it on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. The Werewolf episode was last season and FUNNY. I’ll post a clip I found on youtube.

      Your movie group sounds like a fun group. I hope someone had a nice big screen for everyone to enjoy it on.
      My favourite place for a movie was the Independent Movie Theater. Not just because they had nice big leather recliners and wine…..but because I love a good independent movie. THAT is something I miss in this lockdown…a good movie in the theater. I am going to have to dig for my projector and watch something on one of the walls.

    • Oh good grief.. 🙂 And some people thought Twilight was weird…(I loved Twilight, glttery vampires and all.

    • I’ve heard of it but never seen it. I think it’s available on Amazon or Netflix, or Sky even, but outside of subscribed TV it’s not shown over here. . .yet.

  • I don’t really remember what Boris said…but my son called me yesterday from England to discuss the protestors in America. And during the conversation he says…”Boris said”….and I started cracking up. […]

    • There’s been public demo’s over here in London, coming out in support for George Floyd. Thankfully, so far, they have been as they should be. . .peaceful but poignant.

      I love that picture, mobile phone?

      Your son’s heart has been stolen by a British Rose! Transatlantic love mirroring ‘one love’ philosophy. I like it.

      • Hopefully you don’t have the alt-right groups there that we are cursed with ratcheting up both the racist and the violence. I am firmly of the opinion that most, if not all, of the violence is actually the alt-right in their never ending war on people with what they consider the wrong color of skin.

        • I agree…I believe so too. But he said there were no protest in the small beach town he is staying in. But he did say…like Jules said….that there are peaceful protest.

          • Well, I will add this…horrible news coming out of DC…well, last night was ok, but Monday…horrible. The church was very upset about his actions.

      • Yes…. iPhone.
        It takes amazing pictures. I do have a camera but I can’t hold it still enough. I do have a tripod….but of course I leave that at home. It’s not too fancy. But I like it to practice my skills and if I improve I will upgrade. My other son though….has a few lenses and a few tripods. His photography skills are amazing.

        This girl may be the one for my son. He had real issues before he left about her height. My sons can be a wee bit shallow at times. I asked….what if she really is short….he said he would turn around and come right back home. Again…their silly humor. He told me on the phone….that she made him happy. My sister who is working in Afghanistan told me to tell him…..if she ever gets crazy for him to go straight to the airport with his passport and wallet. Don’t pack anything…just leave. Of course that is what they are told when working in other countries. If you ever get into an accident or something happens just get to the airport and catch the next flight out of there. When I told him he couldn’t stop laughing.

        • Hey, if she is really short, you know what they say….”big explosions come in little packages,” so he might oughta run for the hills.

          Hey, we were likely all a little shadow at one time. I know I was…now I think I would just about learn to live with anybody that was sick enough to want me. Well, except for a trump supporter, that is. LOL

        • oops, sorry, I saw this comment and didn’t notice it was addressed to Julie and answered…I hope that is ok. Not that I can do much about it now…LOL

  • I love the appalachian feel of this song. It reminds me of country music and listening to the radio growing up. My mother and father were both into old country, and this feels like it would fit in nicely. And […]

    • I get it completely. It’s almost like we always need to be reminded of the darkness to truly appreciate the light in our lives.
      This song has a powerful message. I can appreciate the old country/Appalachian feel….my parents always played old country in our house too.
      And that deep voice….I absolutely love deep voices.
      My ex has such a beautiful deep voice that all of my sons were born with.

    • Glad you enjoyed it also.

    • I am sorry your friend’s store got hit by this round of what I consider rightful anger over a horrible situation that has happened and continues to happen way to often. I hate when innocent parties get caught and it is very sad that it happens.

      I hope your friend is able to rebuilt with a very small amount of effort, in other words that the damage is slight. I think it is very good of you to go help your friend.

      • I am with you on it being “rightful anger” but know it isn’t the majority of protestors causing the trouble. My friend knows this too. She said….it wasn’t worth a life to protect her store. But her neighbor happened to be there and it seemed if anyone was in the business their business was not touched. So he went out to told people to leave her store alone and they left. And another customer happened to walk by and told people to leave her store alone. So she really lucked out. She only had her windows broke.

        • YEAH, i don’t know what the violence is about. If it were court houses or government buildings, it would make sense to me…anger at the police killings…..kind of makes a kind of sense. Random businesses, kind of strange, but being willing to chose one store and leave another alone, while lucky for your friend, seems really odd to me for a “riot” situation.

          But hey I have never been a rioter so what do I know…LOL

    • By the way, I am thinking the term, “you can see forever” while looking at the picture. Nice on.

      • Ha!…you can only see to the ocean. And during this time of year we have the coastal Eddy which the overcast covers the shore for over half the day if not most of the day so we don’t see the ocean. But during the fall winter months the coast is clear just about all day and we actually get to see the sunset into the ocean.
        Its a beautiful view.

    • Hey, if it is high like that, and I can see buildings and in the distance the ocean, it is more than I have ever been able to see from my house..LOL

      BTW, the only time I ever had this one view was when I visited a friend of mine that lived on a mountain side…. 🙂

      • I am on a mountainside. I wanted to move to Coronado Island along the beach but my sons wouldn’t have it. They are over cautious and are worried about tsunamis. So having a view of the ocean from here is second best. And I’ve come to enjoy it here. But I really would love to live off the grid in Alaska somewhere. As soon as all my sons are married and established I will see where I end up 😉

    • 😛 I used to live in Tennessee, in Nashville. I moved to New Orleans when I retired in 2014. I love this city. The point, however, is that my mother was so afraid of the ocean….water being a mile away would have had her in nightmare all the time. Talk about being over cautious.

      She died in 2002, and I might have moved earlier but couldn’t before she died because for the last 5 years or so, I had to be close to here plus if I had moved that close to the ocean while she was still living, she would have nagged me to death every day calling several times in all likelihood, in case the ocean came after me.

      Funny thing is that she taught me to be afraid of some things, but the water thing never took effect. i always loved being beside the water although I don’t want to get in it because I never learned to swim.

  • This message is for anybody that is reading it. I am very sad tonight. I laid down a couple to three hours ago and woke up thinking i was in the twilight zone. You see, I knew that the people in Minnesota […]

    • More outright lies from a leftist.

      #1. the very clear transcripts of the now-infamous Trump Tower presser on the tragic events of Charlottesville. Here are the unambiguous actual words of President Trump:

      “Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

      After another question at that press conference, Trump became even more explicit:

      “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”

    • #2. It was reported that “Hundreds of protesters, some armed, gathered inside Michigan’s state capitol on Thursday as state lawmakers debated the Democratic governor’s request to extend her emergency powers to combat coronavirus.

      A tightly packed crowd of protesters, some carrying rifles, attempted to enter the floor of the legislative chamber, and were held back by a line of state police and capitol staff, according to video footage posted by local journalists.”

      @ https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/apr/30/michigan-protests-coronavirus-lockdown-armed-capitol

      No riots, no shots were fired, no fires started, nothing was looted, no one was kidnapped or killed. There was actually a police presence and the police were obeyed. Then the protesters went home.

      You have a skewed sense of reality comparing “Apple’s to oranges” in a vain effort to try and make it all Trump’s fault.

    • #3, When a white police officer shot and killed black robber Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri after Brown had robbed a store, assaulted the store owner, assaulted the policeman and resisted arrest, Obama stood behind the criminal Brown. He even sent three White House representatives to Brown’s funeral.

      All the evidence showed that Brown attacked the policeman multiple times shortly after Brown robbed a local convenience store and assaulted the store manager. But Obama did not wait for the jury to reach a verdict and instead he reached his own and promoted a race war.

      Eventually, the policeman was acquitted with many of the key witnesses in the acquittal being black, but his life has never been the same and Ferguson has never been the same.

      When the innocent verdict was announced, gangs of hoodlums invaded Ferguson and burnt the city down led by Michael Brown’s mother and step father urging the mob to – “Burn this b*tch down.” And they did. More than 20 businesses were set on fire. Obama did nothing to stop the madness. None of this mattered to Barack Obama. Instead Obama invited the mob leaders from the Ferguson riots to the White House.

      WikiLeaks later released emails showing that Democratic Leader George Soros spent $33 million bankrolling the Ferguson rioters. The people of Ferguson saw their property values plummet by 50% after the riots, but this is of little concern to Liberals Soros and Obama as they moved on to other cities and riots. @ https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/12/worst-president-ever-obama-burns-down-ferguson-missouri/

      The transition from “Hands up, don’t shoot” to “kneel down don’t salute” was rebuked, and not just by Trump, the loss of revenues from dropping game attendance and declining televised viewership brought the practice to a halt.

      I hope the FBI/DOJ is investigating the Antifa, BLM, Soros connection to the current riots.

    • #4. Your point being that rioting, looting, kidnapping, and murder (by the rioters) should be accomodated by a lack of police presence as opposed to a police presence ensuring peaceful protests as occurred with the armed anti-lockdown covid 19 protesters in Michigan?

      In Michigan the protesters went home. In Minnisota the rioters (many not locals) burned their neighborhoods down.

      Were there any mea culpas from CNN or other media after getting the Ferguson story so wrong? Nah. They played the same game with Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, and Trayvon Martin, fanning the flames of racism for ratings, clicks, or their agenda.

      Once the story blows up, the media “drives by,” heading to the next outrage, without any apology or introspection as to how they got it so wrong. You’re just part of the left-wing drive by culture.

      • 1. statues of people that rebelled against the United States in part due to slavery are not heroes of the nation but traitors to it and I am white and reject totally the idea that people that left the nation at least in part over slavery should have their flags and the founders of their rebellion celebrated in government places today. It is celebrating the exact wrong part of history.,…one of the worst things about the nations history rather than one our finest hours.. And the people marching in Charlottesville, were carrying tiki-torches and chanting “Jews will not replace us” That is a hate inspiring chant, and nothing but. They were the most visible and active past of the “unite the right” which was a radically racially biased group.

        2. carrying guns to the doors of a state assembly whether they got inside or not should never be tolerated…it is an attempt to use gun power to intimidate…a threat of violence. And all that to prevent efforts to maintain the health of the citizenry in many cases for selfish reasons like hair cuts and tattoos,..or huge gatherings that could easily be postponed to save lives. It is the act of an domestic terrorist.

        3. First of all, I know that some media said that Brown stole something…or was a thug. I also know that “some media” is biased against Black people….and whatever the case, Brown could have been stopped without killing. And I personally do not tend to believe “new evidence” that comes out after a report to try and make policeman look innocent of abusing their power. And Zimmerman with his murder of Trayvon was an even worse case. He was a rent-a-cop and was told to stand down and the police would come and yet he decided he was “the big guy” and could stand his ground because apparently anybody with a gun is a hero in their own eyes, And really, you are going to try to refute me with the “George Soros paid for” lines of BS that the right always tries to attack those that disagree with them with…you can guess what I think of that I suspect but in case you don’t, I will tell you so you do know….RIGHT WING PROPAGANDA. I have taken part in 30 or more protests including probably 15 marches since the beginning of 2017 and never, ever, have I been paid a penny by any Soros type person and neither has anybody else of the dozens of people that I know participating in the Resistance movement. You have bought the kool aid ole pal,.

        4. Many not local??? Really, and where did you get the figures on that?? The particular location of this brutality was in an area of racial tension for some time.
        Black Americans have been treated as second class citizens until recently in just about all ways, and are still in some ways. The over representations of Black Men in prison and in stats of those killed by over zealous policemen are two ways in which we are STILL not a post racist society. The media “moves on” because sadly, there is one more race based killing right behind the prior one. There are some wonderful police of all ethnicities that do their job and do it with consideration for citizens they are supposed to serve and protect, and then there are some bullies and out right brutes who do not deserve to carry a badge, like the cop that killed George Floyd by standing on his head. Really, instead of loading him into the car, he had to stand on his head.

        But then, we now have a man in the White House that told lies about the followers of Islam supposedly celebrating the destroying of the Twin Towers, and claimed that Obama was not an American even thought he was born in Hawaii, referred to immigrants from south of the border as rapists and drug dealers….as though we don’t have just many of both born here in this nation as we ever imported, legally or not. (the truth is that most immigrants come as refugees looking to have a better life and are encouraged to do some by individuals and businesses wanting cheaper labor. In fact as recently as in the last 5 months there have been farmers not able to bring all their crops in without immigrant labor.

        When the person in the White House has the tendency to demonize people of a minority, whether it be hispanics, Muslims or Blacks, I guess one can expect that so called leader’s supporters to support racist targeting and discrimination too.

    • 1. And I suppose slave owning former Presidents should be expunged from the history books too in your view.

      2. Since what the protesters did was within legal limits all your touchy-feeliness over it is irrelevant.

      3. Some media said Brown… Don’t play dumb, it was the Obama’s DoJ! @ https://dailycaller.com/2015/03/04/holder-admits-hands-up-dont-shoot-claim-was-bogus/or

      4. Of Ferguson… “Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said in an early Tuesday morning press conference that 31 more people had been arrested overnight in Ferguson, he noted that not everyone arrested was from Ferguson. Some were from California and New York…” @ https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/18947-ferguson-riots-stoked-by-media-outsiders-militants

      The rest of your rant is full on Trump Derangement Syndrome, comrade leftthoughts..

      • 😛 Ahhhh, Daily Caller and The New American. In other words, full on right wing propaganda. See, two can play that game. At least my media sources have been known to acknowledge and correct a mistake.

        See, it all comes down to the media one trusts…

    • Nothing wrong with using ready made mix packets when one doesn’t feel like preparing it at home – ingredients available or not.

      And speaking of making bread: I used to do all my own bread baking back in the day, both brown and white. I used strong flour from the supermarket and the yeast packets were abundant and easily got. I didn’t use bread makers – even when they first appeared, but settled on the old fashioned way with hands on kneading and proving. It was a lengthy process and took several hours from start to finish, and once the bread was in the oven and baking the smell was like no other. . .irresistible and mouth salivating to the point of wanting to eat the whole loaf at once.

      I bought an assortment of different sized bread tins – which I still have, but mainly used the 1lb and 2lb sizes. I actually got quite good at it but, after hours of preparation to produce one single loaf of bread, it was all gone an hour or two later by hungry mouths who found it as irresistaible as I did. The fact of the matter was that if we wanted fresh bread every day without fail then I would spend the rest of my life baking bread with little time for anything else. In the end I decided to carry on making it but not every day, it was nice, but too time consuming.

      Thank goodness that in these days we have bread shops where we can walk in and choose out favourite loaves to munch on, and for someone like me who once invested a lot of time in making bread, I know the time and effort that goes in to producing this basic, but staple food.

      • Oh my gosh Jules…IT IS AN ALL DAY PROCESS. And I have tried so many times. One time I made Martha Stewarts Parker House Rolls and they actually came out perfect. All I remember about those rolls is that my mother almost ate all of them. Ha! My mother can not say no to fresh baked bread. She use to make bread when we were little……I remember bowls sitting with cloth over them and learning later it was the dough rising.
        When ever she comes to visit I buy all kinds of bread from bakeries. One loaf that has become her favorite is the Costco Walnut Cranberry loaf. I had just bought a few loafs before their plane arrived a few years ago. Everyone one is in the kitchen laughing and talking and I noticed her walking around as we were all talking and I realized she had already eaten a large portion of one loaf. She even moved my toaster to where she was sitting and was toasting it as she cut it and buttered it up and she made it look so good. It was as if she didnt see us…..or hear us…she was so focused on that bread.
        We have something tribal members learned to cook called fry bread. Our members started making it when the government started issuing commodities to them. Large bags of flour….oil. They would make a dough and fry it up. So it was something my mom carried on when she moved out here. My mom could make some good bread. Now fry bread could be made with yeast dough or just simple flour/salt/baking soda and water. No matter how she made it ….it was soft and crispy. I can’t even make that bread. My fry bread comes out hard as a rock. So I learned to cheat a little….I buy frozen yeast dough. I thaw it…..stretch it out and fry it. PERFECT every time I make it. Ha! My mom doesn’t like that I cheat but I don’t do it often.
        Anyways…..my sister makes bread in the bread maker and she pulls it out during the process and kneads in Cranberries and walnuts and my mother goes nuts over it. Now mind you….my mother is little lady but she can eat.
        I never thought of getting a bread maker because again….my boys are not bread eaters. And if I did get one I would only use it when my mother comes to visit. But like you said….we have bakeries everywhere full of fresh loaves. Plus my sons are complaining about all of my other appliances I hardly use. So I think I made my mind up….I will not get a bread maker. Even if I did…I would have to wait until August for it to be delivered because they are sold out everywhere. I did decide to get one a few weeks ago after spending 3 weeks trying to figure out the best model. And when I decided which one I wanted…..it wouldn’t get here until August. No matter what site I looked at….they were all sold out and on back order. People on lockdown bought all the bread makers. So I didnt order.
        Anyhow…..I think I will spend a day here and there working on my bread dough skills.
        I have so much respect for bakers. And I think they should charge so much more because of the labor that goes into making it.

        Jules….. you are a jack of all trades it seems.

        • Yes, you’re right. I have dabbled in many things over the years and bread making is just the tip of the iceberg.

          I was also a prolific wine maker at one time.

      Brit Hume, like Trump and most of his base, is just trolling with his comments about Biden. Trolling for attention is all these people have. It is impossible to have a conversation with one of these people because all they do is regurgitate nonsense coming from the idiots influencing them. Trump supporters never engage in discourse, are unwilling or incapable of the give and take of answering questions. They seem incapable of articulating what it is they are so angry about because they themself have no idea. Their anger comes from being emotionally manipulated by influencers, and they know it. They are irrational. The majority of the things they might consider “hot button” issues actually have nothing to do with their day to day life. They just see and hear things they dont like, and think they have a right to control those actions of other people which have nothing to do with their own life.

      • I have pretty strong opinions about the situation, but at least I am capable of understanding that we all have to pick the media sources that we give credence to. Most media sources have some sort of leaning as to ideology.

        However, some media is also backed up by years of reporting, often when being caught making mistakes and having it called to their attention, having the intrigrity to admit making the mistake and moving on. Other media sources tend to not ever be challenged by their readers…ones such as infowars, AmericanThinker, the Daily Caller etc, and never made to recant.

        And yet get parroted all over the internet as gospel. There are even so called experts that have claimed things that are just unbelievable and which would require a conspiracy of literally millions too achieve, being still touted as “experts” and evidence of a conspiracy long after they have been discredited. A Dr Mikokiv or some similar name is one that was thrown up to me as “proof” of my error recently.

      • The “globalist” reference only illustrates just how brainwashed you truely are. What next, the “illuminati?” Maye q’anon?

        • It is interesting hearing “Globalist” reference isn’t it. Sounds familar doesn’t it. What is this thing some people have against understanding that the world is much smaller every day. We are all interconnected these days. Things that affect Europe end up affecting America and things that affect us eventually affect Asia and so on.

          We need to learn to live together as a planet. If that is what is called “Globalism”, then I am all in.

        • So, Q is already living rent free in your head, comrade! 😂😂😂😂

    • That article I could read because It was directly related to Covid-19. I will try to read the article you posted and come back and tell you want I think. I admit good point here.

  • This is just a video of the players jabbing each other. But I am currently watching the tournament and am laughing so much. Tom Brady just hit a Hole and 1 and Brooks Koepka donated $100,000 for that shot. […]

    • It’s nice to see famous people like this doing things for charity. I wish I had learned golf. I didn’t seem to have the talent for it. I tried one session in college as a PE credit or at least I think it was in college. Anyway, I do remember that I never once got a ball in the hole. I was a total kutz.

      The only game I have played, even half way well is bowling. I wasn’t any great shakes at me…at least not professional level but I did manage to get a few spares in every game at least, maybe even one or two strikes.

      • My Grandpa LOVED golf. He passed many years ago…..he was one cool Grandpa. He was born and raised on our reservation in South Dakota. He served in the Navy ….moved his family to California and lived his years out in Los Angeles. He loved the city. But he was also a Cowboy ….raised cows and rode horses everywhere. Anyhow…thats another story for another time. Why I said he was a cowboy was because he LIVED in his Levis and cowboy boots.And he had to leave a few golf courses because my wild Grandpa showed up in his Levis and at that time jeans were not allowed. So he did buy some golfing clothes because he loved the game so much. I remember he hit a hole in 1 and the Course awarded him a trophy which he absolutely loved and shared the picture over and over.
        I sent my sons to golf lessons but it didn’t catch with any of them. Which was fine with me….the usual Baseball/Soccer were draining me already.

        The only sport I grew up involved in since I was 5 was swimming. My whole family was on the same swim teams all our lives. We would spend weekends at the pool because we all competed all day in different events. I stopped swimming when I was a teenager. I wasn’t the best at all strokes. Freestyle and Backstroke were my jives….Butterfly and Breaststroke killed me. But a few of my family members stayed in the sport because they had potential.

        As for bowling. I enjoy bowling. My sons and I were still going up to before the quarantine..maybe once a month when my back wasn’t in therapy that is. I am far from a pro but I can hold my own. I actually beat my sons everytime up until last year. One of my sons got the hang of it and would tie me and sometimes beat me by a few pins. They finally started putting my name on the score board because to see MOM having higher scores was embarrassing for them. We all have our own balls and shoes. My sons bought some expensive balls but still can’t get it. I was going to hire a private coach to give them a few lessons. When I worked we would have bowling tournaments and my friends wife paid for a few private lessons for him and he started to kick butt.
        We will see what happens with the bowling alleys in future.

    • Well, like I said I was never high level, in fact me and one other person on the league used to compete to see which one was worse. It was a game that we got humor out of it and added to the fun. I bowled, in a league for several years, but eventually stopped enjoying it as I didn’t really jell with the team I was assigned to. in addition, I had bad pain in my back and it just didn’t seem to be worth it anymore. I have thought about going back and trying again but never have.

      You’re saying your grandpa grew up on a reservation makes me think that you might be at least in part Native American. I would be interested in hearing a bit more about that if you should ever feel like writing about it.

      Oh and I had my own shoes and ball also, I think I got up to a 16 pound ball before I quite. I am not sure what I would be able to do if I went back.

      • Monica replied 1 week ago

        16lbs? That would probably rip my arm off if I tried using that.
        Yes….both my parents are Native American. I have written a few times about it and most likely will again soon.

        • If you have written about it here, maybe i will dig thought your posts to see if I can find it. Or if you have links. But no urgency either way.

          I just think it might be interesting to see what kinds of things you would taught.

          • The more I think about it …it may have been on OLD Thoughts….not on Thinkr or New Thoughts. I come from 4 Tribal Bloods…..and my sons father comes from 2 Tribal Bloods so my sons have 6 Tribal Bloods.
            I will write more about it soon.

            • Wow, that’s a lot. I am new obviously. I knew there was an old thoughts, but assumed this was thinkr, although it did kind of puzzle me why it was called thoughts… 😛

              I will look forward to reading about the various cultures the made you….you. 🙂

              • Yes…..Old Thoughts was such a great place. So many wonderful people. Hopefully some “more” will find there way back. And hopefully many just found a busy life away from the computer.

              • I was part of old Thoughts. For 3-4 years anyway I was active in old thoughts, but so frustrated, angry and driven over the rails by the childish, immature trolling of one particular member who is still active here, for some reason, that I took an action and posted something pretty revolting and disgusting that I was banned. I knew this post would get me banned, but was so tired of being harrassed and badgered by that member (still active) that management allowed to run rampant on the site that I felt I had no choice.

                • You have wonderful points to make but sometimes we have to ignore the ignorant to make a bigger point.
                  I know who you are referring and I was about to delete him when he showed up. I have to be fair but I do remember he was banned a few times on Old Thoughts I think for his behavior?
                  I can’t emphasize enough…people read Bens One Love Philosophy for his site. DISCUSSION…MATURE DISCUSSION is what he believes can happen on important issues.
                  But I am starting to believe in some cases……and with some people…..it’s impossible.

                  • Monica, nobody and I know each other, and he knows that for the most part, I just my opinion of the truth, and leave others to respond or not as they want. I can ignore those that are intent on being nasty, and have done. And you are correct, in my opinion, some it is just impossible to have any kind of discussion because they are so busy telling you how wrong you, which seems to end up badly for everybody involved.

                    • YES…..I have seen a few of those in my years of being online.
                      It comes down to knowing MANY adults have their minds made up on issues and there is no bending it….so why they even post about those topics they are set on is beyond me. They bring nothing to the table of discussion. Also from my experience of online discussion forums…the more educated posters are the ones looking for great debate….passionate debate. They do NOT resort to childish banter. Some end up having respect for everyone even though they don’t see things eye to eye.

                      One of my dearest friends is a passionate republican. She can truly get on my nerves….but I love her. We value and love our families deeply….we care about our communities….our belief systems are strong….we connect on important things. Her husband is almost 30 years older than her which blows my mind. But they love each other. AND she thinks Trump is an idiot……but she won’t sway from her party. Maybe that’s why we can keep our friendship…cause I don’t think I can handle anyone blindly following him.

    • Well, I don’t really to convince….I am not going to change in my beliefs. and don’t expect others to. I just like to articular my “truth”. I don’t understand being a republican to start with. I am a hard core democrat, but mostly because of those two systems, I am more of that…I could be green but consider myself too practical in the current political structure to vote any third party because it is in essence going to end up keeping trump in power.

      I am adamant in my feelings about trump. Actually, a lot of my writing out as a reaction to those writing blogs from the opposite preceptive, and I started “being the bug in their ointment.” Then, because of being proud of some of my posts…and believing that I have worded it well, I save it to other alternative sites, to preserve in case something happens.

      That’s why here, I also post some non-political stuff, because the political stuff is pretty much just me saying what I think…no real “dialogue as such”.

      Which reminds me, I haven’t posted any video’s lately. Might think about doing that soon…

      • I get it…there was always political debate on the sites I visited and always clashing as well. I guess it’s just kind of disappointing at times to see grown adults resort to childish behaviors/words….such a turn off. I mean…I NEVER experience that in my circles off the internet….NEVER. You put people around a table for dinner and I am so fascinated over the discussion that takes place.
        Not calling you out Lefty…… I enjoy your mix of post.

    • I agree. I had a personality test one time with a counselor and it was very interesting what they told me. After a few visits, she gave a insightful analysis of who I am as a person, and how my personality works. i can be easy going, or I can be hard core, and blunt and rigid in some ways.

      Her explanation was that I am like a mirror of my surroundings. I was raised with very blunt (that word doesn’t even begin to explain it) people. My mother was a “hater”. Much of the time, she and one or the other of her three sisters were not speaking to each other for extended periods of time (like 5 years). When they disagreed, it was “bloody” and vicious. I was around this starting as a baby, and had one aunt that I could honestly say now that I literally hated for most of my up bringing years. Mom told me every thing they fought about and painted a picture of my being “the problem”.

      This is a long way of saying that I reflect what I get often. That’s why I often don’t engage beyond making my statement and then let the reaction be what it is…and simply move on. If however, I am around people that are willing to debate while respecting each other, that is different and I will discuss. But heated debates are not for me. 🙂
