From the beginning of the thread until APRIL this was a very interesting thread with lots of different posters, mostly joining in the discussion. We enjoyed speculating and researching why the BIRDS fell dead like they did. It led to Earthquakes, Polar Shift, methane gas, HAARP and a few other thories, Biblical implications, Mayans and Native American Prophecy and conspiracy theories (NWO etc). People made friends, shared stories, music, world news, inspirations, etc and the thread was not the norm for topix (who done who, politics, and haters). That is why it was "hot", at the top and so many posts, plus it being the only non politcal Kentucky wide thread like Ancient Wolf pointed out. Sadly, it is like the rest of them now and seems this one has turned into a fart club. I don't have time for such nonsense, nor am I a hater. I post less and less like many others. And like many others, I will abandon this pastime when bored or waiting on someone. I doubt it will get back to all that is going on in the world and only continue as a thread killer. That is what they want. They can have it. I have a real life, like many others and don't have 24/7 to hop from thread to thread all day on topix.
I also have a date in an hour and have some finishing touches to add to my cougar charm. lol Hope you have a good one yourself and would love to read your take on this thread when I return (if I return, wink ;) wink). It would be a nice change compared to the bodily functions fascination they seem to indulge in now.
Have a good night!
so where's the party at tonight?

Hey there Oglala. Some of these people have issues. lol I try to avoid fussing with people unless they are just really over the top ignorant and out of line. I'd much rather get along with everybody. You kow what's really scary and sad is some people are actually having to deal with those loons in face to face real life! I'm glad it's not me. lol I have enough crazy people in my life to deal with. hahaha Take care.
I'm enjoying a few cracklins sprinkled with vinegar and hot sauce - soul food! lol
Hello to you. Nice to see your posting. In regard to the inappropriate posts, I believe that those people are not really all that nasty in person. It's easy to hide behind a computer screen and play a role. It also might be that these people can take out aggression harmlessly by letting off steam on the computer. I would never do that, but others may. That still doesn't make it right, but I don't take computer "slams" personally. The sad thing is that it's got to be tough to keep up that persona. It would be nice to see all that wasted negative energy put to better use, like supporting each other instead of tearing them down. These are sad times in the world right now, and people should be kinder to one other.

Abeliever is gone for the evening, I think. The "they" that she is referring to is a small group of posters who have made very foul comments on this thread. If you read back, you will see what I mean. Many of the more vulgar posts have been deleted by the moderators.
Abeliever frequently responds back to these posters. I usually do not. If I do, I try to put a positive, more measured spin on my answers. I believe that appearing to be annoyed brings forth more nasty posts. But I can also understand that it is not always easy to refrain from responding in kind, particularly if the individual is a target of a mean poster.

That moon has returned as full as ever tonight. I read somewhere that the brightest shining object in the sky right now is Jupiter. I know, it's nice to see a starry filled sky. Shopping has been under way about two weeks now. I'm not complaint. I delight in giving as much as receiving. Kindness does the Soul Good.

I'll tell everyone right now, I don't hide and I find my screen much easier to read sitting in front of it. Well now Uglylala, it appeared to me you were letting off steam when you made a feeble attempt to troll my hometown Topix.

I agree that acts of kindness are good for the soul, but much of the Holiday gift giving has just become a level of frustration for both the giver and the receiver and the focus is more on the gift than the heart felt intent.

When it becomes nothing more than what will I get for ol' Aunt Snooty? The meaning has been lost. If you have gone out of your way to ignore Aunt Snooty all year long, then any gift appears to be nothing more than one trying to ease their own conscience or drag out some nostalgia when Aunt Snooty was not so snooty.

I find that the act of kindness that is most good for the soul is an act that one might do for a total stranger that one may never see again and costs nothing. Try smiling and saying something to that cashier like "you hair looks nice". That would mean more to them than a box of chocolates bought just because it is time to fulfill some obligation.

True. I also think a little laughter goes a long way.
On another note... I don't mean to be so mean to abeliever, sometimes I do get carried away. But she herself has admitted that I have made her laugh. I hope I've made her laugh more than frown (Because I bet her frown could curdle fresh sweet milk hahaha).

Did you hear a couple of big loud booms just now? The first one almost shook me out of bed.

That's exactly what I mean. But with the crazy traffic, wild shopping cart drivers, and very rude people showing their "true colors" while they're out , I find being polite and holding doors and just being pleasantly spoken to be the best gesture. As far as gifts go, my family gets the things they need after savings throughout the year: new coats, flannel shirts, the bottle of perfume I can't afford myself but Honey likes to give me nice things. Ten years ago we couldn't keep a vehicle running more or less, couldn't afford insurance for it and barely had food on the table. We persevered. I just find some people get really mean and spiteful this time of year. And that's in spite of all that money they spend. Change begins within ourselves and no amount of gift giving makes a world of difference:)

My nine year old helped the cashier has more respect and feeling than most adults. If we just look at the children, maybe we'll learn life's true lesson: it's not the material things that count, Love and Compassion are Life's guides.

Sounds like somebody conscience is working overtime.Giving a little time and a listening ear is the best gift you can give anyone. Like we always said money isn't everything.

Money isn't everything, but it sure is lonesome without it.
