El,
I didn't see this post YESTERDAY, somehow......
otherwise I would have replied.
I think I am the person you are referring to in
that post,
am I right?
Furthermore, I think you are being unfair,
transferring blame to ME for a post by you, which offended
RM QUINN..
Why were you not straight up and to the point
instead of saying your post was directed towards 'me'
via RM Quinn?
Let's tackle this 'honestly' and head on,
instead of innuendo and drawing others in..
You & I were posting 'here' and in DIRTY NELLIE'S
waaay back even with an entirely different group
of people > Vee: M04: MH: FRANKO: FALCON, LA SUNSHINE etc..
and that history must stand for something.
Newer posters now
AND
NOTHING in the world wrong per se, with that..
as, Topix [by it's very nature] is always evolving..
Yes American friends here ARE setting up a meeting,
and yes geographically You and I live close
enough to do the same and chat on the phone.
Allow for the fact that we are all different..
and I appreciate those differences..
I, personally, am not for meeting up with
cyber friends, I like to keep it
how it is 'cyber' friendship... which I DO hold in special regard.
am I SO wrong in that?
maybe I am the odd one out here -
but... at least,
I'm being honest.
so be it.. it's 'me' warts an all! as the saying goes.
Still, at the same time, I am delighted for those who DO
wish to meet, and wish them EVERY success..
I appreciate that we are all different,
and 'I' would also like the freedom to enjoy
that precious difference.
Good Morning Grace....

as you have brought it out into the open, then yes,
I was referring to you.

Going back to when we first communicated on offbeat, along
with the posters you mention, four of which I have had the
pleasure of speaking to via telephone, I asked you for your
number, as I was able, at that point in time, to 'phone for
one hour Internationally, free of charge, covered by my rental
cost.

What a pity Grace, that you didn't expand on your reasons why
you chose not to give me your number then...I would have respected
the reasons you so thoroughly explained this morning...instead of
which you told me 'I have somebody staying with me at the moment and
it isn't convenient'....I suggested it again, and I can assure you,
not something I make a habit of when once turned down....same scenario.

As a matter of interest, I am not one myself for speaking on the telephone, I am not a free agent, I have a lot of work to do with the animals, and of course my home and husband, and I like my evening for relaxation, not saying others do not have busy lives, but making a point of saying, that I am not over fond of chatting on the 'phone.

I do, however, think there is a great deal to be learnt of a person in the voice, and I was meaning as an introductory call...nothing more.

I too wish all those who are meeting up, a wonderful time, I have
no resentment in me!

Wishing you a good day my cyber friend.

thanks for your reply El,
and indeed a yes I DID have someone staying back then,
times and circumstances change, we had this out a few times before,
as I recall..

I want you to know it's *NOTHING* I have against YOU or ANYONE here,
it's just 'my way'

maybe, more correct to say 'my PECULIAR way'!
and it isn't PERSONAL, IT'S HOW I feel about all my cyber
friends;
and yes I communicate personally via mail with
your good self and another here but as for meeting,
I prefer the mystery of cyber friendship to remain, as it is.
dono'why but, that's just me.

Anyway, long live "EL's KITCHEN" which is a wonderful
thread of friendship and communication,
you welcome ALL and sundry -

even odd bods like Grace Nerissa(:

Nothing odd about YOU Grace, or peculiar, you are one of
the most kind hearted, knowledgeable, and caring souls I
have ever met, be it cyber or not. I value your friendship
enormously, and if the truth be known, am quite happy as
things are.
Don't often say it, but Love You...

Grace

was wondering if you heard about the homeless fellow
in Dublin in the news recently.
He has a pet bunny rabbit, and, I believe, a little dog.
He was minding his own business when an 18 yr old man
came along, snatched his bunny rabbit and flung it into
the River Liffey.
The Homeless Man looked down at his little pet swimming
around in circles in the freezing waters, and without
any hesitation at all, jumped in to rescue his little friend.
The bunny died in his arms at one point, but was revived thanfully.
A very brave man and God protect him (and his pets) in
this cold snap.

Perhaps it was the phrasing that rather hurt my feelings. As mentioned, email/text is more challenging to understand meaning sometimes as opposed to face to face.

I told my husband that back when I was a kid we had pen pals; today we have cyber pals.

I suppose like characters in a book, you can 'picture' folks looking like whatever you conjure in your mind.

If I had the money, I would be interested in traveling to Europe to meet up. I enjoy people and learning about them but we only share so much here -- hence the anonymity.

I can assure Grace, I am not an ax murderer!

(That last sentence being a joke. I hope you wouldn't think I was criminal)

Not everything finds its way across the pond so I would not have heard, but I am glad for a hopefully 'happy' ending for the man and his pet. There is a man in Chicago who always has his dog with him -- German Shepard -- lays in a blanket. They are always together - companions.

Can I remind you of past posts where I expressed a wish to travel to Chicago one day, and you and I
meet up, visit those gardens?

Does that sound like I don't want to meet you, or indeed, any other friends should the opportunity arise.

I almost met Denny and his wife, I have family close to where he was visiting, and was prepared to 'kill two birds'...travel down to meet them, unfortunately his wife was not up to making that journey.

I have met up with one friend here, he and his wife came to our home. Very nice people indeed.

So, my point being, I had no desire to upset you or anyone else. Okay?...:)

El,
I was really 'blown away' by this post,
never expected such a wonderful expression
'THANK YOU' so very much.

It is wonderful too..
and one of the secrets of
EL's kitchen... that we are all such different
characters here, just like a jigsaw puzzle,
where ALL the pieces are needed & important ..

AND
the great picture * only *shows *

when ALL the pieces fit!

TRUE..

Once upon a time
DIRTY NELLY'S thread
was very popular and had the most posts of
any other thread here.. on Offbeat.
Suddenly, one day, it was taken away suddenly
and without warning.

Some say, troll action
[which was rife at the time] lay behind it..

I don't know but it's history now anyway..
but no matter, it's gone now..
a poor imitation in it's place by
name> 'Dirty Nellie's'
where we post occasionally, but..
it reminds me [lol] of an ole log fire which
needs constant poking & attention if you
don't keep coaxing it along LOL!
it'll go out again!

but EL'S KITCHEN needs no such!!! it is burning brightly all
the time..
far above and beyond *Nellie's*
[and most other threads]
but, that's life..
and, as the saying goes,
it's a good man [woman in this case]
can take being beaten lol!

Good morning/afternoon to all!
My itouch is so old...
How old is it? Old enough that it can't take a Topix upgrade. Something about downloading an app that I can't get to!

I do hope everyone is having a great day! My new avatar needs to be tweaked. The sideways photo of Simba kitty does him no justice.

Happeeeeeee Thursday, Grace, El, Quinn, Tony, Franko... etc etc. I came to read and wish all well like I do on occasion, and sad to see that there is another rift starting between El and Grace. I have a lot of serious issues happening at the present time, and I hope that the two of you can rise above yet another argument brewing. I think the world of you both, and I have a lot of people's phone numbers, and dont call for one reason or another. That does not mean I dont love a lot of you, it does not take anything away from the fact that we have been posting for years. I think it is a delightful idea if you meet one another, and never had a reservation that Grace would be included in the equation. This is a new year, and I hope that you will see your way clear to realize that this is one battle not even worth fighting over. Now why cant you call one another right now, say hello, laugh, and shake hands.

Then lets come up with new information instead of contouring to rehash the same stuff. It's gotten old to me.
The US never should have allowed law enforcement & military weapons on the street --- but the horse is out of the barn and the gun lobby & manufacturers won.'Bad guys' were not using these types of guns decades ago.
Lets start talking about help for the mentally ill, the crap people let their kids & listen to --- I don't give a hoot about Marilyn Manson but when a messed up kid listens to it it's the makings if a disaster.
And yes, let's do stronger background checks especially at gun shows and I don't care how polite the patrons are. Where do you think those with questionable backgrounds can buy the guns?
.........shall I continue?
Quinn if you are speaking of rifles there are no current military weapons on the street. They just look alike but don't work alike. Military is full auto!
