Our theory is that they are living in the Westover school area.
I am not amused by any of this.
There was an article in the paper about it a few months ago. If I recall correctly, you have a pit bull, right? I'm pretty sure he can defend himself (and you) if push comes to shove.

I love the language and the letters.
French is too complex in the sense that it's not straight forward and at the same time it's a rigid language that does not permit innovation in terms of creation of new twists to words or to grammar rules.

My late mom who had a master's degree in English Lit spoke fluent French and had tremendous style.

France as a holiday destination has lost its appeal....I used to love Paris at one point but no longer.

What strikes me about the French is their clear mental perspicuity ( If I'm not wrong I think France holds the record for receiving the highest number of Field's Medals for mathematics - math happens to be my favorite subject) and great sense of aesthetics.

France is in decline and the immigrants have things worse there. The banlieues are Muslim ghettos - awful sight.

Better stick to Angelina's, Marcovaldo and to the uber-stylish Christian Dior haute coutre clothes salon. LOL.

Is it a matter that birds of a feather Flock together?
Yes, the law of matter says that unlike electrostatic charges and unlike magnetic poles attract but a little higher up the scale of existence we see the law of consciousness putting in an appearance with its emphasis on attraction being a case of likes attracting likes except in the sexual department where heterosexuality is concerned.

ROFL.

COR, the PSEUDO-INTELLECTUAL, is back. He's your typical copy and paste artist who quotes a lot from wiki or from those ordinary text books where matters concerned science are concerned - so unoriginal and so flawed and so incomplete in most ways. It's so easy debunking his missives. It's amusing reading his nonsense and besides he has no style nor a conscience. Typical American filth - low down on intelligence, low down on style, low down on ethics. LOL.

Hey FR
How do you celebrate Christmas? Do you give presents? Have a tree? Eat a meal with your greater family?
I can answer YES to all of that.

In addition, I've been known to frequent churches as well.

And yet, I'm an atheist.

A secular Christian is one who par takes in Christian traditions for, well, traditions sake, without the underlying belief system, but I suspect Huggy knew that but chose to ignore it as it doesn't jive with his narrative.

Secular could also mean unbiased or equally accepting of all faiths without making distinctions of any kind but usually it means a complete divorce from matters of faith/religion, or in other words it refers to a crass materialistic type.

WHO IS AN ATHEIST?

While the standard definition of an atheist is one who does not believe in God - yes, the extra-cosmic, anthropomorphic, anthropopathic, creationist deity is pure fiction - from another perspective, an atheist is a crass materialist who believes or who assumes that sentience somehow arose from insentient matter. What a shocking paradox! How naive!

RELIGION:

1) Religion from the Latin "religare" means to bind, to yoke or to unite. Unite with what?- With the unregenerate passions. So, religion is all about the consciousness getting immersed with the play of the lower emotions or the baser passions.

2) Religion is based on unregenerate instincts.

3) Reason is above instincts and so it's superior to religion.

4) Intuition exceeds reason.

5) If the intuition is true, and not a delusion or a hallucination arising from the subconscient, then it is always supported by refined instinct and higher reason from below.

6) The ideal situation would be a perfect harmonization of instinct, reason and intuition for best results.

I had to chase a 40 lb coyote out of my backyard yesterday after dinner. You remember where I live? Its not exactly wooded. Its urban.
Wow - in PA we had groundhogs, possums, even a fox, of course deer, many deer - and here we had a wild turkey the other day.

Small world. My wife read that we shouldn't feed the wild turkey as they attract coyotes, evidently their only natural predator in these parts.

And if we still had a small dog, coyotes would be a bad thing.(We may get a dog again one day....a toy poodle could make a nice snack for a wild dog)
