About 30 years ago, we could have blamed it on the Soviet Union.

i suppose you are right about the mod thing but i just don't see why it matters so much. pleasant conversation is all most of us are seeking on here it seems, and maybe to hear a different point of view than our own once in a awhile. if it happens to be a to pix spy or mod or Gene Simmons who cares.....

Yep, our good buddy, UNA is still around, he posted this to me in the bible study thread:

Hello DontCare, nice to see your post. Just trying to provide some "expert advice" on helping solve the debate on nuclear power. Expelling internal gas is cost efficient and less damaging to the earth and plants. May be a bit smelly...hehehe

Naw, I just do this for free. It surely must be free since I only have $8.51 in the check book and $61.40 in cash to last about another 3 weeks. But if Topix wants to send me check, I will spend even more time on here. LOL But if they don't, maybe I can sell some eggs. I totally disagree with the anagrammer and if I harbored as many negative thoughts as that poster, I would not even waste my time coming here in the first place and would not need to take a break.

Good Post and I totally agree. The real UNA is gone and I miss him as much as anyone although we disagreed more often than not. Numerous times I would have just liked to have reached through the screen and smack him. LOL UNa never really used outright profanity (as defined by some), but had many pseudo words such as "arse".
Too often people try to merge their own opinions and belief systems into other's expected lifestyles, and when the other person does not accept those opinions as "Gospel", then they are considered to be deceitful, hypocritical. and non-Christian. Una was unique and for that I admire him.

Hi Betty. I agree and unless one has some axe to grind, what difference does it really make as to who might be a mod or not. Most people read and post here just for entertainment purposes anyways.

@Lala.. I read your suggestion on how I should proceed with a relationship with my best friend, but I won't jump onboard. My friend and I have both lived alone for way too long to try to reinvent a new lifestyle at this late stage in our lives. Too often, people live alone yet exist in the same house and that is even worse. Thanks, but no thanks. We have the best of both worlds and no plans to change anything.
Dog is finally back from the tree and chasing any boondock boogers, so it is time to get off here for now. I would stay longer but Topix has not sent any money. LOL Reminds me of the song with the line that says "Nothing from nothing, leaves nothing" LOL

I don't know about that. I spoke to Una myself. And, believe me, I am not a hired goon by Topix. Also, I think if Una HAD been a Topix paid employee, he wouldn't have put up with some of the things that he had to put up with. A LOT of Una's posts were deleted. A LOT. Anything here that's reported is removed. I've seen it.

Morning. Not much going on, looks like a good day out there to spend outside. Seems there is a race of some sort today, not a fan, but if it keeps some of the rednecks off the road that's a good thing. To the regulars, hold down the fort and best to you all.
#86416 Feb 24, 2013
being true to yourself and being sincerely outspoken is one thing, however, it's hard for me to find any redeeming quality in someone who attacks others with profanity and crass language. That's like saying you admire the honesty of a bigot who openly expresses his hatred of others. If you admire the fact that he could stir up anger in others by what he said here, I don't find any redeeming quality in that either.
#86417 Feb 24, 2013
having nothing is liberating...it means you have no attachment to material things and thus you are free. It is actually not such a bad state of being.

...and the only way to be happy being rich is to be detached from your riches by sharing it with others, therein lies the happiness of true wealth.

Good morning bird threaders, what a beautiful day. I checked in last night but only seen drop ins and the nonsense about Una. May he RIP.
Our Wildcats finally won in overtime last night and we were all exhausted just watching the last part of the game and then overtime. It was an exciting game and it was ESPN Game Day.
That sure was some wreck AW was talking about. It is a wonder a lot more people were not hurt or killed. That tire jumping the fence was something.
For those who hadn't seen it:
Here's what the crash involving Kyle Larson and 11 other Nationwide drivers looked like from the grandstands.
Tyler Andersen, a resident of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., was at the Drive for COPD 300 on Saturday and was filming the final lap when Kyle Larson's car got turned into the catchfence just in front of him and debris from his car flew into the grandstands.
You can see the panic in the stands in the crash's aftermath and the tire that flew over the catchfence landed just feet from Anderson.
At least 28 fans were injured in the crash, two critically, which also damaged the catchfence. Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood said that the fence would be repaired in time for Sunday's Daytona 500.
Watching all of those fans pour in for today's race in 80 degree weather, shorts, sleeveless shirts etc...makes me anxious for spring and summer. It is gorgeous out now and I will be grateful for our good weather compared to others dealing with the white stuff. lol
#86420 Feb 24, 2013
then why do so many of you admire someone who did not adhere to the standards of pleasant conversation?
#86421 Feb 24, 2013
Good morning Belie, I tend to agree on your comment about the mods and all the shills that appear in droves from time to time. But I doubt it will run me off. If Una and a few others haven't so far, I doubt those trolls or paid shills will either. I forgave Una for his attacks on me and he forgave me for my retaliations. I do miss him though and no one can convince me he is still posting somewhere. It may be to spare his family that someone is posting as him so people won't think that church deacon/treasurer in the obit would be capable of the comments he made on many threads. I am surprise that Dont Care believes he is posting on a thread. Must be one of this friends posting and DC is just playing along. I am not buying it. We know he is gone. He may very well spent his last breath tapping keys in this thread.
I hope you have a good day Belie.:)

Here's proof that even birds are big jerks sometimes
No one ever talks about survival of the nicest out there in the wild, and there's a reason for that. We can only assume that animal jerks like this grabby little bird will probably live forever.
Just look at that sweet little kangaroo just peacefully eating a banana (or femur or whatever) and presumably humming Australian folk songs in his head, oblivious to the cunning bird swooping in from behind. The bird comes in quick as a flash and makes his getaway, leaving the kangaroo to look much like we do when our fingers make it to the bottom of the Dorito bag earlier than we intended. Next time keep your treats in your pouch, kangaroo. Haven't had enough of jerky animals for one day? Click through the gallery above to see even more.[Source]
Crows Play On Snow-Covered Car
A group of crows have some fun rolling down a couple of snow-covered cars in the city of Saratov in Russia
Seems like every morning I wake up to even more birds singing outside my window. Spring is so close. I love it. The first thing I do is go out and feed them to thank them for their tunes.:)
#86423 Feb 24, 2013
For lala, you will love this. My neice said she has seen her horses playing like this and it is a real treat to watch.
Horses roll and play in the snow
These horses show us that we aren't the only ones that like playing in the snow and making snow angels... or, snow horse angels.

Husband dies on the way to wife's funeral
World War II veteran Norman Hendrickson’s wife Gwen died on February 8. Just eight days later, Norman was arriving at the funeral home in a limousine when he stopped breathing.
How sad for the family, but he got to go with his wife. It reminds me of a quote I seen around Valentine's Day that I thought was just precious.
A man bought 12 flowers, 11 real and 1 fake, He said, "I will love you until the last flower dies"

Cat ruining fellow cat's duck hunt may be drummed out of cat union
Look, there's a code about this sort of thing. When a cat has a big-ass duck dinner in the crosshairs, a fellow cat is supposed to back off. No encroaching, no poaching. However, above all else what the fellow cat is not supposed to do is sneak up behind the engaged cat and pounce, scaring the bejabbers out of it and alerting the winged prey to flap off to safety. That's just damned embarrassing to cats everywhere (the deafening snickers you hear right now are from birds and mice everywhere), and there's likely to be a fine and a suspension of all cat privileges for the offending tabby. So much for the solidarity of the species.
