Argh!! My volume control icon has disappeared, it's happened before.
My laptop does strange things sometimes.

Timely...We should do a duet, hehe...

Fine, be like that.
You will kick yourself when I'm famous.

My partner is Portuguese, as I've mentioned to Night Star we jokingly call Portuguese people "pork chops" around here. One day he was dressed pretty gangsta, and I named him "TuChop".
Just need to think of a 'handle' for me now, lol.

See you guys in a bit!

I enjoyed 4 weeks in the Algarve Back in the mid nineties ... and got kicked out of Spain on the same sojourn. ( there's a word Jace ...
)

But that is another story ..

That sounds like a story worth telling some time, Timely!


Sojourn. I do like it.
It seems like the world is conniving to stick me with "conundrum" still. Keeps popping up.
Conniving conundrums.

Sojourn. I'll take it for a test drive and see if it sticks!

Very interesting. I will have to investigate Pascal's Wager a bit.

I came to the opinion a while back that atheism is also a form of faith. We believe what we can directly observe and little else. Since atheism is a belief in the absence of something, it is impossible to directly observe a negative, yes? Therefore, atheism actually requires a form faith to believe it it is true.

My biggest hangup with Christianity was actually not the death and resurrection of Jesus. If you believe there is an omnipotent God, and there is life after death, resurrection is easily within the realm of those parameters. No, my biggest hangup was evolution and the formation of earth, the solar system, and the universe. I still struggle with it a bit, but a wise Christian told me once that the Bible is not a manual for how God did things. It is a book about who God is. That's a pretty big distinction, and I came to the conclusion that if we accept God as described in the Bible, it's pretty darn arrogant of us humans to think we can know exactly how God did or does anything.

I was a person who saw coincidences. Luck was a matter of probability - raise your probabilities for a favorable outcome and you make your own luck.

Now, I see signs. I look back on my journey of faith and ask myself, "How did I get to a point in my life where I believe?!?"

I really enjoyed "Signs" as well, as I have most of M. Night Shyamalan's movies.

A vivid and perfectly apt description of extremes of the "helping a buddy move" spectrum. Well put, TrueBrit. The preparation ahead of time makes the actual move mostly trivial. Our one snag was moving a gigantic 55" hi-def television. There was nothing that could be done to alleviate the misery. For the first move, it had to be carried up a switch-back flight of steps with oak bannisters. The slightest deviation would rip the bannister to shreds, but the TV weighed about 300 pounds. It took 6 of us, including one friend of mine who was small enough to - at one point when necessary - crawl under the TV to get to the other side & help.

The last move? The TV had died. We only had to move a few parts of it.


Our last move was good too (Mrs. Shepherd is an excellent packer & organizer.) The one thing was two of my burliest friends come huffing and puffing around the corner carrying our chest freezer on the shoulder dolly (moving strap). They set it down and start complaining about how heavy it was and how hard it was to get it upstairs from the basement. I opened it up and said, "Guys, you know the plan was to take the food out of the freezer first and put it in the 3 coolers we had downstairs, next to the freezer, right?"

Oooo, Timely! "Elocutional" - good word, man!

Good morning everyone. Sad news.

I lost the hen. She never got better, and her crop became pendulous. Turns out, she was a straw eater, which the vet says is rare to break that habit. So it was surgery or put down. I couldn't justify the cost. As much as I love my girls, in the end we went with a peaceful ending.

I know this might sound strange, but I sure can handle "offing" roosters a lot better.

Aww hunny, I'm so sorry to read that. You did the right thing, a peaceful ending means you showed love and kindness. *hugs* to you from me as I am still grieving my Sophie (but know I also did the right thing).

Shep...Hi there! I'm trying not ignore anybody but still can't find my volume control icon (on my laptop) and am losing my cool over it!

Hello Jacy! What operating system are you using?


Shep, when it comes to the computer you have..to..talk..slow..and..use..basic..dumbed down..language, lol.
Windows 7 (is that what you meant?)

I also believe that somebody else occasionally seems to access my computer when I'm online...and I have "paranormal" things that seem to happen too. (woo-woo stuff)

My icon has disappeared before, and then *poof* it's suddenly sitting there like always. I'm also answering private messages right now, and have to log off soon.

If you have any advice, please remember I'm not Marty, hahaha...some of your conversations with her are like another language to me!

It's probably that the sound icon in the system tray is set to "notifications." I'll see if I can PM you a good tutorial on what I'm talking about.

I came through the pages smiling and laughing until I got to Chief'smom's hen dying.

So sorry to hear that. Poor birdie! You did the best thing for her Hun.

True, when you mentioned Essex and North Shore, it reminded me of places in a nearby State. Seaside towns I would often visit. Being in New England, we have many places named after areas in England. Sometimes I'll be in a thread thinking, oh, this happened around here? Then I realize it's England. For many years I had wanted to move to England. I figured, even if my life sucked, I could listen to people's lovely accents all day and feel better. LOL

At one time I had the accent down so well, that I would be in a store or wherever and talking to my friend. I would have strangers come up to me and ask where I was from and if I was just visiting or did I move here. LOL!

Waves at everyone at I missed!
