"I’d really hesitate about a Border Collie. They need to be kept occupied. They’re very busy dogs. Now, if you have time to train one and want to, that’s different - they’re about as trainable as they get. "

A Missing Circle of Hell

Posted on February 1, 2019 at 3:24am 37 Comments

We have been away for a few days and this morning we packed up, loaded the car, and struck out.  After about an hour and 20 minutes we realized that we had had no breakfast.  So we started looking for a likely spot to get breakfast.

We spotted an awful house (Waffle House) and found the place packed with people waitnf for a table.

While we were waiting I sat on an uncomfortable chair facing a booth.  The couple in the booth were sitting opposite each other.  He was working on…

Collard Greens and Black Eyed Peas

Posted on January 2, 2019 at 6:10pm 19 Comments

Yesterday we had black eyed peas and collard greens, a traditional Southern meal on the first day of the year.  It’s supposed to bring prosperity and good fortune.  Does it work?  I don’t know.  It could have been worse if we hadn’t eaten it in past years.

I have heard the explanation for this humble meal being one of Civil War privation.  For many Southerners this was all that was left after Union troops came through and requisitioned everything else.  Typically, the collards are…

Tweet Wars on the Left

Posted on December 30, 2018 at 7:53am 28 Comments

Twitter has revolutionized political conversation in a way that not everyone thinks is a good thing.

Write this down, I'm referring to a Fox News story.

Claire McCaskill and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been in a tweet war.

McCaskill, is an outgoing member of congress from Missouri who has referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a "Shiny Object" and a…

SNAP and White Male Privilege

An article in Salon this morning caught my attention.  The author who grew up in Baltimore, in and around public housing, reported being very familiar with food stamps and how they are used.  There were a couple of assertions that were…

Rodney, I don't quite understand who all can read a  comment wall.  I'm glad we friended just in case you ever want to comment on my posts because I have had to limit comments on my posts to friends because there are some non-friends here who cannot respect my notice to them that they refrain from commenting in my posts' comment section and i will not not comment in theirs.

And oddly I cannot at moment find your comment to me to which I am now responding.  Anyway, I'm no longer young in body either, though not too much vision impaired yet, I make plenty of typos and ommissions.  I had thought we were already friended but when I went to msg you, saw we weren't.  

I wanted to bring this sentence you wrote in "Something Happening  .." to your attention thinking perhaps spell check had put in a word you didn't intend.

"Flake joins a growing number of Republicans voiding (voicing?) outspoken opposition to Trump."

That's as far I got reading the post so far, will read later in evening.  I like how you write and usually what you write about.  I too am a science major, chemistry and taught high school biology, chemistry, physical and ag sciences.  I sort of minored in philosophy and religion and though went through college without ever taking a history course, have since for decades been enchanted with such.  I'm not a mediator I'm pretty sure, especially when it comes to politics, and, when it comes to economics i'm no fan of capitalism, Wall Street or land speculation.

Thanks for your reply, see you in the line up, 

mokii

(the name moki ikom has no meaning that i know of other than what one may make of it, but i've used it in some form or another for many years on line,, i do know someone named moki and that's how it started for me)

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
