  • This picture is 2 weeks away from being 2 years old. Chubs is going to be 12 years old in September. He’s the bigger cat by the way 😉 12 years ago I was searching and searching for a Calico cat. My sister called […]

  • 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.

  • 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.…[Read more]

  • 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…[Read more]

    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…[Read more]

  • 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…[Read more]

  • Hahahaha…..a Hot Mess eh? I have a question….I remember a poster from YEARS ago named FeverishDreams(?) I think the name was. Do you recall that name from any site you were on?

  • 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…[Read more]

  • 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.

      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 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…[Read more]

  • 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

    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.

    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…[Read more]

  • 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…[Read more]

  • I think I pieced it together enough to get the point. Ha!
    When I try to put a post up….I also have to reread and make sure I got the format right. Its not really the easiest to post a blog. Well….for me at least.

    What I also know….is when I am REALLY passionate about something I am writing ….I can easily mix my words up and misspell.…[Read more]

  • 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…[Read more]

  • Oh…we had a few “Village Trolls” on old Thoughts.

  • I guess we are all terrorist 😉

  • It’s where I live. I am thankful I live up in the hills of La Mesa….but behind these hills the rioters really did some damage. I heard there were 2 banks burning and I could smell the smoke up here. I was […]

    • 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.

  • 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.
