Quarter Life Crisis

  • It is a sad fact that in our socially connected and enlightened world that is 2021 there are a few among us that have yet to evolve above the mentality of a Neanderthal when communicating their thoughts online. I […]

    • I remember this story. He was just the cutest person making his rounds around his property. I had no idea Neanderthals were being Neanderthals. Another sad thing about this….is that this online behavior is not shocking. We have encountered doses of it here at times. I have seen it at times on Twitter and sometimes I will just respond with a simple “Idiot” IF I even respond. I normally do not allow myself to get pulled into a back and forth. Because we know you can not make sense of them. Maybe a punk kid….maybe a sad pathetic adult. I try not to think too much about those animals because I can easily get frustrated. But I wonder if their accounts can be blocked if enough people complain?
      There must be ways to handle them these days.
      We know this man was a wonderful person with a kind heart…..those punks can’t change that.

    • The Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter are coming under increasing pressure to clean up their acts when it come to abuse. Just recently some black sports stars over here have been trolled by these strange people – some included death threats! There is a growing trend within the population that is getting louder as the days go by, they are calling on these media sites to do more than they are doing right now – we all know they can do more but are they willing to put the time in it will take to monitor their sites properly?

  • Hey diddle diddle
    There is no cat or moon
    The sun is bright and shining
    Come listen to my tune
    Bring your bow and fiddle
    And learn to play along
    Together we will fill the grove
    With music, laughter, and song.

  • I have just been to Epsom Downs Racecourse, one of the many vaccine hubs scattered across the UK where I got jabbed with the AstraZeneka Covid vaccine. Apart from a slightly inflamed area on my arm where the […]

    • Astra Zeneca was the one I wanted when it was still in the testing phase. But it hasn’t been approved over here yet and my mother (retired nurse) recommended Pfizer. So Pfizer is the jab I got. And I should say STAB because like I mentioned ….I didnt feel the initial 💉shot….but after a while I felt like my arm was stabbed or better yet…punched 100 times by Rocky Balboa 🤣

  • So …I ended getting the first Vaccine a few weeks ago. I didn’t think my sons Tribe would include me in their Vaccination list but they asked my sons if I wanted it or anyone else in our household. I felt […]

  • Monica and Profile picture of GwyneiraGwyneira are now friends 1 month, 1 week ago

  • If any one knows me they know I absolutely love DIY projects 🛠 and watching shows like this. I think because of the Covid slow down of new shows over here some of our channels are showing older UK shows. WHICH ar […]

    • I love, love, love shows like this.
      So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

      I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

      • YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
        I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

        • They really are very addicting.
          It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

          I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

          • You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight ☺️
            YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

    • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
      It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
      So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

      There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

    • Are you serious?
      I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
      We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

    • Someone remodeled the big house (Chateau) which is not my thing at all. I prefer getting an apartment as is, and not having to worry about it. Oh maybe pick out a picture or two. LOL This somehow brings to mind an interview I saw part of earlier today of Fran Lebowitz who emphasised that she is lazy. She got one bad job after another when she first moved to New York at 18, and finally just realized she didnt’ wanna work, period.

      That’s sort of me.

      • I kind of get this. I think we feel LAZY when its something we really are not passionate about. I never had to do a remodel….and I probably won’t ever. But I love the idea of it…I love how creative some people can get over it. My fun is designing a room. But….it is also draining too.
        I sometimes just want to hire a decorator to come and decorate every room in my house because I can never make my mind up. I can spend months debating over a chair…..and once I decide on the model….add a few more months on picking a color. And add a few more months after that for picking the fabric/texture. ITS HORRIBLE. But…. once I get going I am ok.

        Yeah…..pictures are an issue with me too. Because I only want to hang my own art work. But I don’t because I want to paint in a color scheme I decide on for the room. And ….and….and…..it doesn’t end you see. 😔
        😉

  • My sister “Queen of Horror” sent this to me earlier today and I didn’t watch it at the time because I wasn’t in the mood to watch a horror scene. But she assured me it was different. So….I just watched it. […]

    • There’s much one can read into this film – allegory or metaphor, but I wouldn’t consider it a horror film. 11 people all sat around a table feasting on what will become their last supper. The biblical last supper was attended by Jesus and his 12 disciples. Biblical connotations?

      The diners’ appear to be eating several endangered species with gusto, and have no moral compunction over the terrible consequences such attitudes will ultimately cause. So Mankind sinks under the weight of his own sins – this being gluttony, and again, another biblical reference is exposed. In a visual metaphor we see the diners’ and their table drop to the lower floor. . .are there no limits that mankind will sink to for momentary satisfaction?

      Maybe they are in purgatory forced to repeat their past sins before ascending to heaven?

      The script writer definitely had something in mind when this was written, and even to the casual viewer it is clear that there is so much more going on here then what is seen on the surface. It’s the insatiable appetite – primarily – the need to use up all the Earth’s resources rather than protect them. Mankind is descending rather than ascending as He should be.

      There is more, but I could go on forever.

      • After reading your response, I have to say my first reaction is “why didn’t I take it any deeper”. I seem to tend to be so literal about things like this. A group of people eating and falling through several floors, is just people eating while the floor falls out from under them…and I miss any “allegory” that might be there.

        Suspect you are right, don’t doubt it for a minute. I just don’t think in those terms.

        • I might have done the same thing as you….but I was asked my opinion of the movie so I had to look at it from as many angles as possible. My sister can get into some deeper discussions. So I have to “try” to dive as deep too. ☺️

    • I think you hit all areas that we discussed over this. Well….the thoughts the people in the group brought up to her and she shared with me. And I just realized DoDo bird me didn’t post my view. I thought for sure Gluttony ….that was the only thing I saw. But she brought up all the ideas she was discussing with other people….which was along the lines of what you wrote. Your very observant Jules.
      I also felt….this short film was not “Horror” unless of course you are a devout religious being 🙃 It is labeled Horror which is why I didnt watch it right away. So again….agree with Jules on this.
      But I also felt it was a nicely made short film.

      I started watching a show which distracted me from posting my view here last night. I can’t stand getting caught up in a series. 😁

    • Ok, I am going to respond without reading what you said so that you can get the closest thing to a “fresh” viewpoint as possible.

      First, I was wondering what the heck was going on. These intense people were really dedicated to eating whatever that was. Then the food stuff bothered me. It looked like they were eating baby chickens or something..I mean in the egg chickens, unhatched chickens, except they were fairly big so what were they really?!!

      Then as time went on, my attention went from “what the heck are they eating” to when is the next floor going to give way, and why didn’t these crazy people just start out on the ground floor in the first place.

      I think it ended up being more perplexing and sort of funny rather than “horror.”

      • YES…not horror in the sense that we thought. But I imagine a religious person could see the horror in it if they see the “Gluttony” and the “descending” floors.

        • Yeah, I think I would be pretty “horrorified” if the floors kept giving way. I wouldn’t be really happy for even one to give way.

  • I wish I could hand them all a fluffy pillow & a cup of hot tea 🍵

    • All this for one moment of national insanity.

      • Yes! We could have had this on the “day of insanity” but some people in the White House didn’t think it would “look” good.

    • And a warm blanket. Bless each and every one of them. I heard yesterday that at least 20,000 National Guard members are expected to be in Washington D.C. for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, which is roughly four times more than the amount of troops currently in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

      • Uh huh…..my sister has been moved to a smaller base and smaller living quarters in Afghanistan since bases have been closing over there.
        Just seeing these soldiers sleeping there to keep everyone safe gave me such a feeling of good and warmth.

    • Are these the National Guard gathered in the Capitol to keep our Congresspersons safe? If so, give ’em a blanket and pillow for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • As above, then so below
    Not so true right now
    In height I find the solace
    That only a dream will allow
    I know I am not alone
    As I watch the clouds go by
    It’s so safe and serene up here
    In my imaginary city in the sky

    • Its so mesmerizing and calming

      • This was a spontaneous response to the news that over 1500 people died of Covid today – a daily record in the UK.
        I was thinking of places to escape the pandemic.

    • Very touching Jules. Covid #’s are horrible over here too 😞

      • I think everyone dreams of a time when Covid goes away forever, but the realist in me doubts it.

        • Im with you on that. I have one son who reads everything and he told me when this started that this was going to be like the flu….it will not go away. And sure enough……that is what is being reported.

    • I love that picture, looks magically lovely.

  • Doing our part. Visit the F.B.I. site where you can find more pictures.

  • Horrible Picture…sorry about that.

  • Something to think about.

    • I have not watched a Nostradamus video in so long. There was a time I could not get enough of him. I remember reading a few books about it so long ago. I think I was a teenager. It was kind of spooky back in the day.
      Amazing how accurate he was 🔮

      • I read a book in my teens by Erika Cheetham called “The Prophecies of Nostradamus.” The book contained all the quatrains which Nostradamus wrote. It was an interesting read which relied heavily upon interpretation more than anything else.

  • It’s been years since I heard this song. Let’s hope we all have a “Perfect Day” 💜

  • Twitter actually suspended Trumps account for 24 hours for “Violating civil integrity”

  • So much I want to say….but trying to control what my tongue wants my fingers to type.

    • I praise you for showing restraint in such a volatile situation.

      • I have been listening to all stations over this and all seem to be saying the same thing about these Rioters. “Misinformed through Social Media Trump Supporters”
        I think…if those sites Twitter/Facebook/Youtube social media Titans are taking steps to stop “Misinformation” on their sites ….we may want to discuss what we should do here. I know I have deleted some post and deleted some accounts here due to hate/violence/racist post though not many.
        We are not even on the radar compared to their size….but we have a “One Love” philosophy that we as Admins here need to do our best to protect. And we of all people should not be spreading misinformation. So Yes…I have to shut my laptop at times and ponder.

    • Yes indeed.
      I think that by now the whole world knows that every claim relating to election fraud has been thrown out by the courts across the board due to no solid evidence. People believe what that will or what they want to believe because it suits their political stance regardless of validity or lack of it.

      And so conspiracy theories grow and filter down through the “global” population via social media and become POPULAR truth to the faithful, but popular truth and official truth are two very different things. So as Admins the task is whether or not to allow such political motivated conspiracy theories to prosper? – or delete them immediately on this site?

    • A woman lost her life today because of the events at congress: this happened at the heart of the American government because of an act of dosmestic terrorism. I think it’s obvious how we proceed.

  • Looks like Warnick & Ossoff took Georgia.

    • What!? You mean it went through without a counter claim due to fraud? . . .sarcasm intended. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • … 🤨……………. 🤣 😂 🤣….. oh its been said even BEFORE the voting even happened. We kind of expect it anymore. But these 2 actually WON. Seems Americans are trying to make a point. Go figure 🙃

  • Jules wrote a new post, 2021 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    A new moon, a new year
    My calling remains the same
    I stand upon a spinning rock
    My only claim to fame
    Fireworks have been subdued
    The streets are empty and still
    Our time here is so transient
    With so much space […]

    • BEAUTIFUL Jules ☺️
      HAPPY NEW YEAR to you 🥂
      Hope you had a wonderful safe celebration. Me….well I wanted to watch movies made in the 70’s for some odd reason. I sure know how to party 😉

    • Haha! No celebrations for me this year. However, I too have enjoyed watching “older” films and Disney animations. “Frozen” was my favourite over the festive season and a couple of Hercule Poirot films with Peter Ustinov. It would seem we both know how to party!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • THIS is how I planned on bringing in the New Year before I broke 2 toes. I could just imagine some of you joining in and doing these moves with me 🤣 Boy what fun we would have and how crazy we would look. Af […]

  • Chubs FINALLY finished his 4 month medication 🙌. WE FINALLY finished having to give him his medication twice a day. I think I wrote about having to take him to his Dr. because of his breathing and his nose (a […]

    • Happy Kitty…I am so happy he is happy today. He is adorable. My son had a cat named Blacky that looked exactly like that when he was a child. I loved that cat. I love Chubs is loved!!

    • Oh how sweet, bless him, I am pleased he is better. We have a female cat called molly who looks very much like chubbs. Xx

      • Thank you.
        I think everyone at one time in their life had or knew a black cat 😉
        Have you guys accidentally sat on your cat? 🥺
        We have….we couldn’t see him. THANK GOODNESS we jumped as soon as we felt him.

    • Yes I have sat on my cat!! LOL. I love you dear. This was a happy lighthearted post. You and your kitty have a great weekend.

      • I usually keep my post lighthearted and happy……mostly ๐Ÿ˜‰
        That was the only shirt I bought him because he wasn’t happy about it like his little sister was. She absolutely loved wearing a shirt after she got use to it. BUT my sons said mom….please don’t turn into one of those crazy ladies who dress their pets. So….no more clothes for my cats. Maybe when I turn 60 I will try again 😅

    • I love Chubs’s candy cane shirt. So festive. I meant to mention that the first time I read your post. So cute. LOL

    • Such a beauty!

      • Even with his swollen nose…..in that picture at least. He is a big guy 18lbs.
        All the swelling is gone and he seems to have regained his youthful playful side.

    • He looks very adorable ๐Ÿ™‚
