I'll just slump into an armchair while my head clears.
Where are the morning papers? Who's got the Daily Telegraph?

You go ahead and slump, relax, your papers there on the coffee table, it hasn't even been opened yet.
Your coffee cereal is on it's way.
Did you listen to the music, it should help relax you and calm you anxiety.

Did you catch the thread my wife started?
Some young man has taken it upon himself to attack her at every turn, I understand he's believes in Open Borders and Refugees.

To be honest, the arguments for and against Obama leave me out of my depth. Too many issues on which I'm not fully informed, so I stay out of them. And some Americans resent foreigners having opinions on American politics (as we see when gun control comes up).
What you need is a good wide sea-channel. Used to work for us.

Good morning everyone. I smell coffee.. and zucchini bread! Yum!

So I see Mrs G just threw some gasoline on the Obama fire.

Regardless of what people may feel I believe the 10 year argument is valid. No they just have to prove the Hawaii birth certificate is a fake (which I believe it is.) Or perhaps push the angle that Hawaii was never really a state to begin with.

Either way none of it matters. Just like no laws matter in the US anymore if you're one of the elites. Laws are for the serf and slaves of America.

Salutations good Hernando's. I couldn't resist the fresh coffee and zucchini bread. May I share a slice or two ?

It looks like the conversation has come around to politics as it often does in good company. Myself, well I tend to stay out of the political threads unless it's a question of law rather than ideologies. It does seem to be Bassago that on the larger stage certain laws are meaningless for some although, on a smaller scale I have noticed that we all tend to pick and choose what laws should be followed to the letter.

This may just be the Sicilian in me talking but perhaps our lawmakers should hold all future discussions over food.

Hi pennylemon and a good welcome to you for joining us. Coffee, drinks and eats all seem to go on Charles's tab which Mrs G then always manages to lose somehow.
Make yourself at home here it's quite relaxing.

Ah politics, the curse of humanity. You're probably right though, most of us pick and choose what we'll follow and hope we don't get caught. After all stuff like that 55mph road sign on the back empty highway couldn't really apply when no one is around. Good point.

Thank you Bassago and Mrs. G for the kind welcome and making sure both our glasses and our bellies are full.

And to Charles who opened the door to such a wonderful place.

I must admit I was a bit intimidated and wandered about outside for awhile before venturing inside. As a matter of fact I was almost caught, I just might have been the pipe smoker hanging back in the shadows.

Yes humanity does seem intent on thinking up an endless stream of self created curses. Are we stuck with the idea that our health and well being depends on our ability to control. I raised a beautiful and head strong daughter who taught me, among other things, that we can really only control ourselves. That alone seems to take a lifetime of effort and regular reminders that my way is not always the right way.

Well I'm glad you came in. There is nothing here to be intimidated over. In fact I believe Charles installed a filter at the door to keep that stuff out. Maybe he should expand it to cover the whole street.

Pipe smoker eh? In the dark shadows no less. I've always enjoyed a good (pipe) smoke for many years except when my daughters were growing up and I didn't want to give them 2nd hand smoke. By golly if they're going to smoke and get all those benefits they need to pay their own way.

Yeah it's sometimes a life lesson to realize that the way we think or believe isn't the only way to do things. I get that, have 3 daughters of my own all grown up now. Many lessons on that road.

I just needed to get some anger off my little chest

I just needed to get some anger off my little chest

I understand and have many times tried to channel that anger into destruction and payback to those who I believed at the root of the problem. It seldom seems to work for me. Could no more channel that anger than I could read my own Tarot destiny.. go figure, like some kind of shield blocking or something.

So dinner sounds absolutely great. I'd like 2 dumplings, 1 pork, 1 shrimp and a trip to the salad bar plus a cup of that turtle soup. I may not be able to move after all that.

Does Charles know all this is going on his tab? And where is Charles anyway? Think I saw some mafia guys nosing around wanting to make him an offer he couldn't refuse for Hernando's. And they had a horse with them.

So my friend, you've been missing for two days, are you well?
How is your Wonderful Mother?
How is your Beautiful Daughter?
How are you Really?
Are you just tired and need a rest or are those old demands getting to you again and not allowing your spirit to rest and relax and to calm its self?

OK, OK, I know what it is, I have Eye's and Ear's on you from Beyond and you know it,,,,, My Friend!

Ok, Take some deep breaths and think of those roses and trees and water ways and relax, I'll have the chants and prayers and incense candles burning all night for you, as my Mother watches over your chi and sooth's your mind and brushes out those thoughts of worthlessness.

Just believe and relax, no alcohol, Black Honey Tea and yes a Cigar is OK, Socks to keep your feet warm, OK. Good.

Hey Charlies.
I whipped up a thread and hoped to get your thoughts good sir.
Hey Theists! I am an atheist. But I am not your enemy.

Hello guohua.

Are you going to stop by for supper?
I hope so.

Feel free.
I more than welcome your input as well.
I wanted to set straight some misconceptions I have seen intentionally purpetrated by some.
And just taken as given by others.

I am doing better by the day.
And it feels great to say that.


I cannot guarantee, but I think that would be nice.
The winds of fate being what they are I shall definitely try.

"Tread mill?!?!?" That sounds dangerously close to "exercise." Exercise is against my (new) religion.
I just made that up but what the heck.

Speaking of healthy is the bar still open? If so I'll have a triple Jack D w/ice and a splash of Coke. See when I finally pass on to the great beyond they won't have to embalm me.

So where is/are Charles and Expat? I'm beginning to worry about them. I do understand they've had some serious s%$t happening so I hope they're OK.

You know, Charles is missing two days now and Expat as been missing or AWOL as my husband says sens the 27th of Sept. and we're worried he's had an accident or a family problem.
My husband has already called about visa's for both Japan and Vietnam for himself and he'll go if we feel it's necessary.
Yes, my husband can find him, I'm sure some one of Expat's reputation lives a trail in the seeder side of the cities.

My husband is good at what he does even at his age

We do have contacts in Vietnam, mostly in Haiphong and Nha Trang though and their Old like us put they know people and still have contacts in Hanoi.

@ Expat888, your friends care about you, no matter how you're feeling or what has happened, We Care.
