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.<quoted text> I wouldn't quite say a person's appearance or religious beliefs would totally prevent that individual from using profanity. Una knew scriptures well. Did he not retire from a gas company thus Una Farter. His comedy, his barbs, his sincerity could all be ascertained through just how he presented himself. The computer allows us a means to vent. It gives us a place to congregate without being judged unmercifully by how we truly believe. I have found the biggest hypocrites hide behind the church. Una admitted going to church. He never hid his true self. We chose to accept him as a human man, not perfect and without guile. Outspoken. I was glad to know he had family to spend Christmas dinner. His health was poor, but Boy he could stir up some stuff on here. LOL. Enough said. I'm calling it a night.

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

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.

What is this thread called again???(=
#86427 Feb 24, 2013
Thanks, you too. Good day for me to get a head start on spring cleaning, enjoy your day ; )
#86428 Feb 24, 2013
Learn how to read and then move on. Second class boat. Thanks for the spam and nuts. How about a lemon for some lemonade. Troll
#86429 Feb 24, 2013
I have been doing mine on the freezing cold days so I can enjoy Spring outdoors. I am going to enjoy my day with family and friends at my nephew's Ponderosa, horseback riding, 4 wheelers, cookout and the Daytona 500. Have a wonderful day.
#86432 Feb 24, 2013
Got to shut down and grab my snacks and head to the ranch. I hope you all have an enjoyable day whatever you do. I will be cheering for Danica today. I love Jr. but today I am going with GIRL POWER. lol
Have a great day, will check back later and see if the thread has been overrun with drop in trolls with their ignorant comments. Must be the Una fans. lol Guess they didn't get the memo where he made friends here and enjoyed himself to the end.

Forgiveness and tolerance gives us humanity. A man with a sharp tongue is neither a rapist nor murder, but a man of words. And even the so called bigots come before the Great Father . The old videos of Adolph Hitler with his dog really show me a different picture as well. We are unique as humans because we have different thought processes, whether we like or abhor something someone says or does we can (1) understand that person's point of view or (2) ignore that person and pass by. Life is ours to make.
#86434 Feb 24, 2013
Well, LASS or LADDY! I haven't seen a dead bird yet! I've seen skunks,squirrels dead, but, not a single bird. So,enlighten me?
#86435 Feb 24, 2013
good eye there misty ! judge not lest ye be not judged; we all have freedom of speech to express our own personal opinion,(unless they've taken that away too )a right to be different . if we were all the same, then we would REALLY hate each other. at the least , it would be a dull world. I try to respect most everyones opinion, but to the hipocrites ; I say have a good day . to some on this thread, they think you have to be a member of the club or something before your aloud to speak. they call us names such as Trolls, ect. Is that just a nice version of a four-letter word like smit for brains ? practice what you preach regulars. we can all click a lemon or nuts icon.
#86436 Feb 24, 2013
i can only speak for myself, i did not admire una. he still owed me twenty bucks for my rim. but if i stopped having pleasant conversation with everyone that owed me money, i would have no friends.
#86437 Feb 24, 2013
ole UNA was on to things .....
he knew the government was responsible for the massive bird die offs ,...
it is all tied together with the contrails and fracking ,and birth control drugs in the water supply
local people saw the supper secret silent black helicopter land near his house, the night he died ,...
black opps injected him ,...and made the it look like a heat attack ,...
