Some Observations About the Difference in Faith and Belief

Posted on November 17, 2018 at 6:30am 15 Comments

Recently I listened to a woman who makes soap talk about the process and demonstrate it.  What I learned was that she had only a rudimentary understanding of the actual chemistry, and had some almost religious beliefs about the addition of aromatic materials to the product.  She was opposed to essential oils and in favor of fragrance soaps.  She thought that essential oils could be dangerous. In the next few days I talked with a woman whose daughter sells essential oils.  My friend's belief…

A Single Sentence Quesiion about Trump and Dumpster Fires

Posted on November 16, 2018 at 2:11pm 4 Comments

Given that Kellyanne Conway's husband, George, has described the white house as a "dumpster fire", a seemingly apt metaphor, will Trump try to put the fire out with water or gasoline?

Birth and Death of Words in Our Evolving Languages

Posted on November 14, 2018 at 7:13am 22 Comments

If you like words you may find this interesting.

For no particular reason the word “coryza” came to mind.  No one that I know has ever used it, but it occasionally seems to be mentioned in older medical literature where I took it to be synonymous with an upper respiratory ailment like a cold.

The etymology is from Latin from Greek koruza meaning nasal mucous.

It came into use in the 16th century and refers to inflammation of the nasal…

The Diversion of Honoring Veterans on Armistice Day

Posted on November 12, 2018 at 9:24am 10 Comments

Today is officially Veterans Day, but yesterday, 11/11/2018 was the 100th anniversary of the armistice agreed upon in a railroad car in the woods of France.  World War I was to have been the “war to end all wars”, but as everyone now knows, it wasn’t. 

How did Armistice Day become Veterans Day, and why did the treaty officially ending WWI start WWII?

The first Armistice Day was celebrated on November 11, 1919, a year following the endo of fighting in Europe.  In 1926…

Comment Wall (11 comments)

You need to be a member of Our Salon to add comments!

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 ...

Nice to see you and so many of our O.S. friends here!

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
