I'm a senior living off of a small pension. The cost of rent has gone up big time maybe as a result of the cost of buying houses. Greed is the energy fueling this huge rise in the cost of rents, and it is a side effect of the free market let free in the real estate market. People are living in tents and in cars. Children are some of these people. Shame is the word...
(not a pic of my cabin) We just got a cabin on the lake a few months ago.. and although the foundation and exterior of the cabin is solid..the inside needs a lot of work. We've been going up on the weekends whenever we can to do some demolition. (all the drywall and pretty much the whole inside needs to be gutted) and we are...
People behave morally without religion then why is religion even necessary? Much of what is in the Bible seems like made up fairy tales with no modern day evidence supporting it. So are atheists right? Since there's no evidence for God's existence and people who don't go to church behave just a moral as those who do go to church whats the point of believing in God?
I love a good insult as I am sure most of us do, there is nothing like dropping a beauty into some light to medium banter to throw the competition off thier guard so I thought we could have a bit of a list so we can all be well armed. Two that spring to mind, a few days ago someone online told me to "Go step on a lego" and I have to admit...

I cannot believe I am writing this. I wake up in the morning and it is even more raw and real.. it's like a nightmare I just can't wake up from. This has been the most devastating loss for my family (and all of Ian's friends and admirers). My brother also has a twin, who I am concerned for but we are doing everything we can to support him. I'm also very worried about...

My husband had told me he had to go on a business trip for four nights this weekend, until Wednesday. I never thought anything of it - he must travel a lot for his work. Until tonight, I received a confirmation from a four star hotel in Bourgogne for TWO adults those four nights. It's a great place, spa and all. I am in shock. I am crushed. I am an idiot. A naive idiot. I was...

Just came across this and the smile that came across my dial must have been massive. br /> I never understood the whole "Happy Holidays" thing.

When did we let the hate take over? Because I supported Trump I have been called a moron a redneck (thank you, even if it was meant to be an insult), and other horrible things. We’ve seen Hollywood (I use them because they have a loud enough voice to be heard) call people horrible names because they don’t see eye to eye. I’m not showing their tweets because...

It boils my blood it really does, why do something badly and then think it is ok? Over the years I have seen so much it is absurd, often dangerous and at best just embarresing.

I fear the events that lead up to death. The pain, the gasping for breath, the hospital scene. But do I fear dying? I don't believe in religious mythology, so when I ask this question, I am asking whether I fear the mystery that is post-death or whether I fear non-existence. Non-existence doesn't scare me at all. You exist and then a millisecond later you don't. No emotion present....
