At first, she tried to deny him doing anything of the sort, then she begged me to not take the photos to the school. If I was a teacher, I would HAVE to, by law, report it.

well sometimes the rest of the world has trouble keeping up with you... and unfortunately the wheels of justice turn at their own pace..as much as we as 1 person see the threat to a child as very serious way up their on the richter scale...there are other things that on the grand scale are seen as more serious

No, Google has a chat messenger called 'Google Talk' that's built into Gmail, or you can download the standalone client [which I've done] here:
http://www.google.com/talk/

The
n you just sign in with your Gmail address and password and add you contacts by their Gmail addresses.

Oh sorry, lbdawger already gave you that.
[I'm not awake yet.]
9:12 am

But you can't do conference [multi] chats on Google Talk, mrp. So I prefer MSN [Windows Live] messenger, because you can on there.
9:13 am

We all use that, mostly.
9:14 am
mrpresident

ah, haven't used msn in forever!
9:15 am

Oh, you have it? My sign in for that is the email on my profile.
9:15 am

Despite its 6.5 million square feet of floor space, the Pentagon in Washington was constructed in such a way that no point in the building is more than seven minutes’ walk from any other point in the building.

9:32 am

depends how fast you walk I suppose and how often you get lost
9:32 am

Hi Steve!
9:36 am

I bought an inexpensive pair of flip-flops yesterday, they were attached with one of those plastic thingies to keep the 2 together, and they had a little tiny hanger so they could hang on a hook int he store.....
9:36 am
stevedallas

sorry
9:36 am
Fauxmage

Thank you car.eeyore.
9:36 am
stevedallas

hi car
9:36 am
JBV

so here's what it says on the label "For safety's sake, remove all of the plastic tag holders. These are not part of the item."
9:36 am
JBV

no kidding
9:37 am
car.eeyore

The dumbing down of America continues...
9:37 am
JBV

I'm wearing them now, and yes, I cut off the plastic tag!
9:37 am
crosshair

!!! had had a box of toothpicks once with a label on the back warning of choking hazards and not to put things in your mouth....
9:38 am
JBV

well, you just know that it probably was caused by some unfortunate accident by some really clueless idiot, so now they have to warn everybody
9:38 am
stevedallas

youre supposed to cut off the tags? I thought they hooked around your little toe!
9:38 am
JBV

LOL, steve! the hangers were really cute, though. I actually thought, "What could I use this for?"
9:39 am
crosshair

that is the real scary part jbv,they warn you not to dry your baby in a microwave oven,cause at sometime,somewhere,somebody has done just that
9:39 am
JBV

OMG, that's not even funny
9:39 am
crosshair

i have seen the label,no body parts in the oven
9:40 am
crosshair

usually on the cheap wally mart equipment is where you see the most interesting labels
9:40 am
JBV

you're not going to believe this, but you just reminded me of a scene from the very deep past:
9:41 am
JBV

my grandfather who had very hairy arms used to singe off the hair in a quite practiced move over an open flame! quite entertaining for us kids
9:41 am
crosshair

in chinglish,or mexilish,or some other thing that is almost readable
9:41 am
crosshair

ugh@ the smell of burning hair
9:41 am
JBV

I know exactly what you mean, crossy, I kind of have a radar for those -inglish labels!
9:41 am
JBV

yep I'm smelling it right now :)
9:42 am
Fauxmage

Oh my Pa used to run his finger through candle flames for us.
9:42 am
JBV

he was a real character - used to wow us by cracking a walnut between thumb and forefinger
9:42 am
Fauxmage

I did it once and my nail polish caught on fire. :P
9:42 am
crosshair

i had an argument while returing a padlock at a wally-mart last year.i looked at the banner behind the counter proclaiming 20% canadian product content and called her on it...
9:43 am
crosshair

took me 20 minutes and i found a pencil made in canada
9:44 am
crosshair

so i caught a floor manager next time and asked him about it and he said" well i know the floor tile for the store was bought local,and maybe some of the counter tops" !!!
9:45 am
doseffing

... a bunch of their socks and underwear and tee-shirts are made by Gildan in Quebec ... but I can't think of much else
9:45 am
JBV

thanks for the tip, Fauxmage - maybe they should add a tag to candles: Do not run polished nails through the flame!
9:45 am
crosshair

lol,you ladies have nothing on me,way way back,(when i was less brilliant than now), i once started a camp fire with naptha fuel!

1:06 pm

1:06 pm

1:47 pm

1:48 pm

1:49 pm
crosshair

i was lucky sue,mine atrophied somewhat and it is bearable,but i was told not go go under the knife unless i was reduced to crawling on my hands and knees
1:50 pm
crosshair

and a friend of mine was in similar situation,he went for the operation and now uses 2 canes full time,so i wait and watch
1:51 pm
crosshair

once they start messing round in that spinal cord,anything can happen
1:51 pm
uusue2

well, I was in so much pain that I couldn't really function, and bone spurs were starting to compress my spinal cord (the skin on my chest was starting to go numb), so I didn't have much choice. All three surgeries have been very successful.
1:52 pm
crosshair

no,you were at the do or die point
1:52 pm

I do have a bit of trouble walking (well, mostly I can't run) but that is due to knee replacements

2:09 pm
KayteeJay

Crossy, I've been too stupid to complete the grid for some months now. My mind is too distracted, so I don't hang around as much as I did before
2:09 pm
crosshair

there is no such thing as stupid
2:10 pm
KayteeJay

I couldn't think of an English word for what we call being 'doff'
2:10 pm
crosshair

the only thing that i know that is stupid,is never doing something you want to do,or a question that is never asked
2:11 pm
KayteeJay

I do quite a lot that I want to do lately - but still have to do too many things that I definitely DON'T want to do, lol
2:15 pm
crosshair

well see? every day you must remove from your life 1 thing no matter how small that you do not wish to do,till eventually all that is left is the good stuff:)
2:16 pm

we have a older work in our language called doff,victorian era etc= to remove ones hat at in "to doff you hat to a young lady passing by"

yea..must get rid of that work thing myself...
2:17 pm
KayteeJay

Oh, I know the English doff. Our slang is pronounced slightly differently
2:19 pm
KayteeJay

There has been so much happening in my life I think I must have managed to get rid of a few things I didn't like. But have also taken on some that I don't really wish to do - such is life
2:24 pm

hmmpf. My mouse seems to have realized that yesterday's theme was mouse pads, and is refusing to work properly without one; which wouldn't be a problem if I had one. Which I don't.

2:47 pm

here, they get 1-2 weeks in Dec/Jan
2:48 pm

trick or tr7s come on 31 Oct :)
2:50 pm
KayteeJay

I think this was a 3 week break. They get about 6 weeks at the end of the year.
2:50 pm
dcseain

ah, so you have a longer school year than is usual here, which i think is a good thing.
2:50 pm
KayteeJay

I'm guessing - don't have any school-going kids so I've lost touch with school holidays. Only notice the difference in traffic
2:51 pm
dcseain

that is, i favor a longer school year
2:51 pm

howdy dc
2:51 pm
KayteeJay

Yes, your kids have months off over your summer, don't they?
2:51 pm
dcseain

they do. it sucked.
2:52 pm
crosshair

here,they were tossing around the ideas of year long schooling or a 10:00 am to 4 :00 pm schedule so the high school darling would not be so traumatized getting up early in the morn
2:52 pm
KayteeJay

I just can't figure out what you do with your kids over such a long time. Can you take that much leave from work?
2:52 pm
dcseain

through my 5th year of school, we never got more than 5 weeks off at a time.
2:53 pm
KayteeJay

10 to 4? That's not a day!
2:53 pm
dcseain

No, people enroll kids in childcare, day camps, sleep over camps, the kids play outside insofar as the heat and humidity allow, they spend hours at the pool...
2:54 pm
dcseain

my HS has an 8-4 day, and did when i was there, too.
2:54 pm
KayteeJay

Expensive either way. I'm glad our breaks are so much shorter! It's not safe to let kids go out and do their own thing here.
2:54 pm
crosshair

my son was blessed,he had 4 years of horse summer camp.2 weeks in july and 2 weeks in auguast.when i was a child,i had to fend for myself lol
2:54 pm

around here, HS is usually 7-2, MS 8-3, and ES 8:30 or 9 to 3:30 or 4.
2:55 pm

Crossy, when we were kids it was safe to fend for yourself. Not anymore
2:55 pm

My daughter would have thought she'd died and gone to heaven if she could have had 4 weeks of horse camp!
2:55 pm

we used to spend weeks hiking at the local national park with a park ranger or two guiding us, a group of about 25 6-13 year olds
2:56 pm

3:08 pm

Vegetarian food is harder the further North you go, but on the West Coast it's easy to find.

here for vegitarian food you must seek out the indian or thai places

but at harvest time we are awash in fresh veggies
3:09 pm

italian is good too, if you eat cheese
3:09 pm

That butter pecan ice cream recipe looks lovely - don't have an ice cream maker though
3:20 pm

yes, today is a bad day for meringues, pralines and fudge here. it's raining
3:20 pm

3:20 pm

kaytee you do not need a machine,just 2 large pots ,some ice and some salt
3:21 pm
KayteeJay

What does an ice cream machine do?
3:21 pm
KayteeJay

crossy, and how do you use them?
3:21 pm
hego

Crossy is low tech. : )
3:21 pm
dcseain

it chills and stirs the ice cream, So, fill a large pot with ice and salt, set a smaller pot in, and stir, stir, stir
3:21 pm
Uneaixoise

we used to have a hand-cranked ice cream machine :-)
3:22 pm
dcseain

use kosher salt, aka rock salt, not table salt
3:22 pm
KayteeJay

hego, I don't think I even know anyone who has an ice cream maker - that's an unmentionable luxury!
3:22 pm
dcseain

i have an electric one that uses ice and salt for the chilling.
3:22 pm
crosshair

make sure one pot is 2 inches in diameter smaller than the other,place it inside the larger,fill the space between with ice and sprinkle salt over the ice..now for all ice cream you start with a base of 2 part milk to 1 part cream and then either glucose,honey or liquid sugar,then you add your flavorings...
3:22 pm
hego

I have 2 actually.
3:22 pm
Uneaixoise

there used to be a tearoom here in NashVegas where an elderly black gentleman sat on the front porch hand cranking ice cream . . .
3:22 pm
KayteeJay

thanks dc - can I use an electric beater to stir?
3:22 pm
Uneaixoise

shades of "The Help"
3:23 pm
hego

But thay are very inexpensive ones.
3:23 pm
crosshair

best to scrape by hand with large wooden spatula
3:23 pm
dcseain

yes you can, kaytee, be sure to get into the corners, may want a rubber spatula also
3:23 pm
dcseain

yes, wood works too :)
3:23 pm
KayteeJay

When I've made ice cream before, I've just mixed it up and stuck it in the freezer
3:23 pm

seain, you've got me salivating for homemade ice cream!!
3:24 pm
hego

Hey! Hi Une.
3:24 pm

always 2 parts milk,1 part cream and berries must be fresh,or a nice butterscotch sauce
3:24 pm

my mom first made a custard cream . . .
3:25 pm
Uneaixoise

OMG, how fabulous!!
3:25 pm
KayteeJay

a 4-day ice cream camp? wow
3:25 pm
dcseain

if put in freezer, stirring periodically, you get gelato, which is Italian ice cream
3:25 pm
crosshair

you can also use corn syrup rather than glucose
3:25 pm
hego

I start with cooked custard.
3:25 pm
KayteeJay

How does gelato differ from regular ice cream?
3:25 pm
hego

It's more of a gelato.
3:25 pm
Uneaixoise

gelato isn't as smooth
3:25 pm
dcseain

i've made custard-based, sherbet-based, and non-custard based, all successfully
3:25 pm
hego

Snap!
3:26 pm
Uneaixoise

hego does the real deal!!
3:26 pm
crosshair

a tradiation gelato is more like flavoured ice,like limone or spomone
3:26 pm
KayteeJay

corn syrup? glucose? wow, your ice cream is obviously different to ours
3:26 pm
hego

Kay, gelato is custard based and lower in buttercream.
3:26 pm
dcseain

eh, chocolate, strawberry, whole rainbow of flavors
3:26 pm
crosshair

those are but options kaytee,i use raw sugar cane and melt it in a doubble boiler
3:26 pm
KayteeJay

thanks hego
3:26 pm
dcseain

corn syrup and/or glucose is not required, all depends on the texture you're seeking.
3:27 pm
Uneaixoise

my grandmother used to make peach ice cream (Lousiana) with those huge juicy summer peaches . . .
3:27 pm
hego

That's why the flavers are more intense.
3:27 pm
hego

Uh, flavors.
3:27 pm
KayteeJay

lol @ dc - I don't know if I've ever seen corn syrup in the shops
3:27 pm

peach ice cream is a nice light refreshing mix
3:27 pm

NO corn syrup!
3:27 pm

3:28 pm
dcseain

i never use corn syrup, aka karo syrup
3:28 pm
dcseain

i do sometimes put in a bit of lyle's golden syrup
3:28 pm
Uneaixoise

but it's required for a good pecan pie! LOL
3:28 pm

Hi Minver :)

Minveryork

Here is my story of clues for you to re4/5 for today's da4/5: September 6, 2011. I know that it is ea 4/4y, but I dr5/14 Halloween. I would ra 4/4 Halloween one of the worst holidays. I feel like my enti4/4 October ea4/4ings go towards candy. We have many ea5/10s of Halloween candy in my neighborhood. My husband likes Halloween. He likes to see teenage girls wearing er6/21 costumes.Halloween seems to last forever. It seems trick-or-tr7/28 come la5/10 and la5/10 every year. It's ra 4/4 to get less than 50 children. I wish I could be a re9/54 and re7/28 into the basement and pretend that I am not home. Da 4/5! Time to ro 6/18 the laptop.Husband wants it.How da4/5 he interrupt my babbling time! I have it7/28d to him several times to wait 'til I have found all the words before he takes the computer. But he does not care one io4/4 if I am babbling or not. He will become a ra 5/10 and ra 4/4 and rave and cause a ri 4/4 if I don't give him laptop. I tell him,there is no need for him to be a ri 6/18, it's just a laptop. He is a re4/4 pain in the re4/4! Well at least I got to be a na8/40 and na7/28 a story today. I am going to te 4/4 my eyes off this grid and da 4/5 outta here.I am going to go watch the movie Flowers in the At5/12 or the movie Ti5/12 for the rest of the ni 4/4. Ni5/10s all! I will see you tomorrow.

It's a great, animated 90 second video to "Don't Stop Me Now"
7:56 pm

Go fish Ru.

7:57 pm
MollyL

As in, do you have any 9's...go fish.
7:58 pm
MollyL

I didn't realize there was a game involved. Only saw the video.
7:59 pm
72 Temple Owl

of you google the doolle it tells the story of how it was developed and the game embedded
7:59 pm

LOL Moll - love the go fish

No one, I repeat NO ONE, in the history of rock vocals has had the power of Freddy Mercury.

Glad to hear you and yours are safe KJE.

those aren't fires.. those are texas barbeques
8:09 pm
MollyL

Still waiting Ru...what rock vocalist has/had more power than Freddy?
8:10 pm
kje

did you get the 3rd 9 ru?
8:11 pm
rururocks

I would put Freddy way up there for sure.. but Janis Joplin, Adam Lambert, the guy in Journey, and Steven Tyler are up there too
8:11 pm
rururocks

I did kje... was looking for the connection to fishing though
8:12 pm
MollyL

I don't have any 9's yet...go fish was the connection.
8:12 pm
rururocks

oh >.. I have them Molly if you need them
8:13 pm
MollyL

All good, quality singers, but none of them has the quality that Freddy had. The guy in Journey? Ouch. Steve Perry.
8:13 pm
Jacula

Hi all. I agree with MollyL about Freddy - no one could ever control a crowd quite like he could.
8:14 pm
rururocks

he has unbelivable range though.. not saying I like his songs Molly.. he is a powerful singer
8:14 pm
72 Temple Owl

hey jacs! did you see the goolge doodle?
8:14 pm
Jacula

Wembley Stadium was magic and watching it still makes the hairs on the back of my nexk stand up.
8:14 pm
Jacula

Hi TO. Yes, I did.
8:14 pm
rururocks

seeing Janis Joplin in person was like that for me.. she was unbelievable
8:15 pm
Jacula

ruru - she was great, too, but not quite the same as the late, great Freddy.
8:15 pm
Minveryork

re 9/60 word is flame re******* material. I just found it
8:16 pm
MollyL

Oh Jac, you are SO lucky to have seen him in person.
8:16 pm
rururocks

I am just speaking about powerful singers with great range
8:16 pm
Jacula

Having said that, I guess it's all down to having seen bands/artistes live. I saw Freddy & Queen live many, many times.
8:16 pm
rururocks

Annie Lennox does it for me
8:16 pm
Jacula

ruru - Oh, okay. Yes, Annie Lennox is a wow factor, too.
8:17 pm
Jacula

Alison Moyet, also.
8:17 pm
MollyL

Annie Lennox, another great voice. But I can't top Freddy for that "Knocks people out" vocal quality.
8:17 pm
rururocks

I thought Adam Lambert did a fantastic job singing with Queen on Idol.. he did a great job and really showed some pipes
8:18 pm
Jacula

Hendrix had the same effect , not with his voice but with the voice he gave to his guitar.
8:18 pm
Jacula

Molly, I'm still with you there.
8:18 pm
MollyL

Yes Jac, when it comes to guitar power, nobody tops Jimi.
8:19 pm
rururocks

umm
8:19 pm
rururocks

*bites lips*
8:20 pm
Jacula

There are lots of great guitarists out there, but Jimi played the guitar like it was his lover - the stroked it, teased it, fought with it, set it on fire.
8:20 pm
Jacula

Seems like ruru thinks Hendrix just 'made row'. LOL.
8:20 pm
rururocks

anyone have the last te 7? please
8:20 pm

R's Rumbled! 2 left
8:20 pm

Lots of guitar players come close, but they all came after Jimi and molded his style. And they all admit to that.
8:20 pm

I was married to a guitarist and I love almost all forms of the music.
8:21 pm

te 7/32 is like the sunken ship with a different vowel.
8:21 pm
MollyL

Like the ship Ru, different second vowel.
8:21 pm
Jacula

ruru - last te7 is like the doomed ship but with a different 1st vowel.
8:21 pm
rururocks

Hendrix, Clapton, Phil Manzanera, Jeff Beck, are the greatest of all time
8:22 pm

8:26 pm

Led Zep are a home-grown band for me, ruru, and I grew up with their music.
8:26 pm

Brian May, who also epitomises the sound of Queen along with Freddy...
8:27 pm

Jac, I think I want your autograph. : )

Many good blues guitarists. Which reminds me, someone posted the rules for writing blues songs in their bio here earlier. Did you all see it.

Another guitar hero of mine is my ex-hub. He was brilliant on guitar, not so good at being a husband.
8:30 pm
MollyL

Leo Kottke was another of Dan's acoustic heroes.
8:31 pm
72 Temple Owl

yes. but to me bruce has more range.
8:32 pm

8:33 pm
Jacula

I remember being away from home once, at a writers' conference in Wales, thinking I was alone in the residential halls as everyone had gone out on a trip and I was waiting for a friend to pick me up for an afternoon with her family, and I put a tape of my husband's guitar playing into my machine and turned it up loud. People I didn't know were there came out of the woodwork and asked me who the amazing guitar player was. He was handed a guitar when he came to collect me at the end of the week and had to do an impromptu concert. Luckily, he's as good on acoustic as on electric.
8:33 pm

Cute story Jac. People never fully appreciate the talent of someone until they hear it live. As for Kottke, he is boring to non-guitar players and fascinating to those who play.

8:42 pm

I didn't fancy Tunisia at the time of year it was offered (too hot for me) OR the fact that it was with a party of 29 other people who I have nothing in common with.
8:42 pm

Bye 72 Temple Owl! I will see you tomorrow in the log.

that's good reason not to goo (29 people in particular)

They like to fry in the sun, party and go 'clubbing' and stick together all of the time. That is my idea of a complete nightmare.

Dorens - we have a fascinating TV programme over here in UK called 'Who Do You Think You Are?' It traces famous people's family roots. I assume they only bother following up the ones who actually have interesting family roots.

Dorens - I think they WOULD be interested in your family roots.
8:57 pm
Dorens

if you've seen one jewish shtetl, you've seen them all
8:57 pm
Jacula

Your family moved/had to move and the background to why that was would be interesting.
8:57 pm
MollyL

<---Has the same allergy as Dorens to reality shows. Like THAT is reality.
8:58 pm
Jacula

Dorens - don't do your family down! Each story is of interest. Well, it is to me because people interest me.
8:59 pm
Dorens

okeydoke jacs. point well taken. i'm just thinking that people don't really like to look at the "reality" of how the jews were treated throughout europe for so long
8:59 pm
Jacula

Ditto to Molly and Dorens re reality shows, but I do find the family tree ones interesting.
9:00 pm
Jacula

Had to call a halt on going back through my own because all the branches and stories attached to each individual in them was taking up too much of my time. Knowing which line to concentrate on was a dilemma. I'll get back to it as and when.
9:01 pm
MollyL

That is a sad reality Dorens. I got queasy in The Holocaust Museum and I never even made it up to the third floor where I've been told, all the really powerful stuff is.
9:02 pm
Jacula

Dorens - not me! In fact, I was having a discussion about that very subject with my son last night. He studied that particular section of history for his degree some years ago. What we were both trying to fathom was WHERE anti-Semitism actually began and why.
9:02 pm
Dorens

it's easier for folks to blame it all on hitler and the germans, but antisemitism was rampant throughout europe from time immemorial ( or at least the spanish inquisition)... and of course, jacs, not you!! babblers are different! we really DO rock
9:03 pm
MollyL

Where does Anti-Anything begin? Mostly with one group of people wanting to feel superior to another. Blech.
9:03 pm
Jacula

Hitler had studied old folk legends that lead him to some of his misguided beliefs.
9:03 pm
Dorens

remember the church blamed christ's crucifixion on the jews. But i never understood that... He was a jew. And didn't he have to die for everyones' sins anyway?
9:04 pm
Dorens

molly, next time i'm in dc we'll go to the third floor together ok?
9:05 pm
MollyL

Okay Dorens, you might have to hold my hand though.
9:05 pm
Dorens

no problem (unless you have very sweaty palms!)
9:06 pm
Jacula

Dorens - it was actually the Romans who crucified Christ, but, apparently, the Jews who chose him over a murder to be saved. But you have to remember that the scriptures about what happened back then were written by scribes many, many years later who had been given an agenda to stick to. So, don't always believe what you read.
9:07 pm
MollyL

And let us not forget the Gnostic Gospels, that tell a very different story of the life of Jesus. Those are all, um, locked up in The Vatican. Hmmm.
9:07 pm
MollyL

Well, most of them anyway.
9:08 pm
Jacula

Oh yuck! Sweaty palms! That takes me back to Scottish Country Dance lessons at junior school, and the lad called Brett I was often forced to partner. Then there was David with the bleeding and crusty warts on his fingers. My teacher used to yell at me for not wanting to hold hands with them. (I used to offer only the tip of my little finger.) LOL
9:08 pm
Dorens

the whole story was very fishy
9:09 pm
Jacula

The Gnostic Gospels are probably much nearer the truth.
9:09 pm
Dorens

molly, i found the memorial to the deported martyrs in paris to be very chilling. first of all, it's so hidden, you really have to work to find it...and then again, the well-known anti-semitism of the french (which doesn't offend me nearly as much as other jews... I am a francophile actually)
9:10 pm
MollyL

A spiritually ascended man lived his life in peace and told people to love one another. The political slant that has been taken on that since he died is astounding.
9:11 pm
Dorens

i know!! how many people have thought about how HE would view what is done in the name of his church?
9:12 pm
Jacula

Dorens - I have thought about that nearly every day of my life since I went to a Church school and wa told their version of his story.
9:12 pm
MollyL

The thing is, he never really had a church. That all came later. People "claiming" that "their" church, "their religion" was based on his teachings.
9:13 pm
Dorens

true. he had a flock, a following and he would have abhorred the church with all its trappings ( imho)
9:14 pm
Dorens

and all the fights within the "christian" community about which among them were the true church? and holy wars... all in the name of this peaceful man?
9:14 pm
Jacula

I don't claim to subscribe to any religion now except that of mother earth, perhaps described as Paganism. I don't know if God exists or if Jesus was his son, but I do know that Jesus was the first hippy and that most of what we are told he said makes sense.
9:15 pm
Jacula

He abhorred men trying to be 'above' other men and would have hated all the trappings of the Popery and other churches.
9:16 pm
Dorens

agree with that... he was the first hippie and his teachings are great. i often preach to my students...just follow the golden rule and life would be terrific if we all did
9:16 pm
Dorens

so how come we see that jacs, and the church and all the people who've followed over the years don't?
9:17 pm
Jacula

Jesus preached on hilltops and in fields of flowers. He knew that nature was the thing we should revere, not poppinjays in gold cloaks with proclamations in their hands.
9:17 pm
jmcnrick

peter was the rock upon which the church was founded
9:17 pm
jmcnrick

peter had the dream three times to "feed my sheep"
9:18 pm
jmcnrick

thus peter was considered the first pope
9:18 pm

See Jac, I told you we were twin sisters of different Mothers. Mother Earth is where I find my Source. I am a Pagan by nature.

jmcnrick

(not bad for a quaker)
9:18 pm
jmcnrick

hi all
9:18 pm
Jacula

Dorens - I've no id4 why people don't see that. I think those 'in power' in churches do, but they need to either feel powerful or make money and so they close their eyes to it.
9:19 pm
jmcnrick

uh idea is not in the grid jac
9:19 pm
jmcnrick

but that is why quakers rejected steeple houses and hireling ministers

jmc - Oh, isn't it? That must've been yesterday's grid, or maybe tomorrow's. Did I tell you I am psychic?

hi jmc and yes, the quakers are admirable?

Hi JMC. The Bible is a great book, written by inspired men. Not all of it is based in fact however. A+ on your Quaker interpretation from the Catholic school girl. : )

mirandapan

Hello everyone--I mostly lurk these days, but, as a priest, thought I would briefly join this conversation. The execution of Jesus is documented in places outside the gospels--Pilate, of course, was the Roman governor at the time--In the Christianity that I practice, however, we do not lay blame on Jews or, really, on Romans for Jesus's sentencing. True, he was a peaceful man, but, also, a wonderful rabble rouser who challenged the status quo at every turn--and became a political threat to the powers that be, mainly because he had a huge following, honored the poor, ate with tax collectors--you know all this. The gnostic gospels are actually quite available and readable--and the church is fallible, being made up of human beings. I don't dispute that. But I would draw your attention to Catholic Charities and Episcopal Relief and Development, two highly rated charities. It is easy to condemn the church, and I agree that Jesus wouldn't recognize himself in what many call Christianity, but there are thousands of Christians out there also living the gospel. Well, sorry, that wasn't brief at all.
9:22 pm
jmcnrick

haha well that is part of why we rejected hireling ministers mira ;-)
9:22 pm

hmmph. natto IS TOO a word. *grumblemumble* silly grumbling dictionary
9:23 pm
mirandapan

The lack of brevity, I take it, jmc?
9:23 pm
jmcnrick

but ty for sharing in this discussion we would never want to drive people away from conversation who willing to politely put forth their views
9:23 pm
jmcnrick

what does natto mean jes?
9:23 pm
Dorens

yes mirandapan there is much good done by the catholic church and others.... i am aware and don't mean to denigrate or sound disrespectful. But so much negativity has occurred, and I've been told that 50 - 60 years ago the catholic church did still teach that jews were responsible.. hope i'm wron
9:23 pm
gremlinn

I always try that too jes
9:23 pm
Jacula

Hi mirandapan. Thank yo for adding to the discussion. I don't dispute that many people live acording to pagan beliefs, which is what Jesus preached. However, I don't think modern day so-called Christianity has anything in common with what Jesus preached.
9:23 pm
jmcnrick

haha yes mira the lack of brevity
9:23 pm
jesdraggon

it's a japanese dish, fermented soybeans i think.
9:24 pm
MollyL

Good points Miranda. I have no problem with another person's interpretation of the life of Jesus. We would all do well to adhere to what he taught and leave the politics alone.
9:24 pm
jmcnrick

well jac i would argue that quakers are modern christians who make a point of living up to what jesus taught including loving our enemies
9:24 pm
jmcnrick

ty jes i never knew that
9:25 pm

are all the c words ci?

welcome. and all the c words i have are ci

i'm still missing one though.
9:26 pm
gremlinn

Yes, all ci, and 3 of them are related
9:26 pm
jmcnrick

:-(((
9:26 pm
Jacula

Molly is right, if we start actually looking at what Catholic, C of E, Baptist and all the rest of the established churches stand for, we will still find a power structure at the top. The whole point of Jesus' teachings is that there is just you and God/Nature, call it what you will.
9:26 pm
Dorens

yes ci's
9:26 pm
jesdraggon

hi grem :)

Hi gremlinn! How are you doing? Welcome to the grid.
9:27 pm
MollyL

Miranda, glad you jumped in. I appreciate all points of view on the subject. And I learn from them.
9:27 pm
mirandapan

Actually, Jac--Jesus taught community. He chose 12 disciples, right? So his religion was not individualistic, but it was not, as you point out, hierarchical.
9:27 pm
Minveryork

Hello Mirandapan!How are you doing? Welcome to grid

hey grem you barreled through again i saw
9:28 pm
gremlinn

hehe, yep, I got on a roll
9:28 pm
jmcnrick

it was mildly hierarchical--he was the teacher
9:28 pm
Jacula

jmc - Maybe, re your point about Quakers, but they don't allow alcohol or gifts or Christmas, do they? Jesus wasn't against having a party - he turned water to wine. (Wish I could do that!)
9:29 pm
jmcnrick

haha not all quakers are that strict -- you know i love my jack
9:29 pm
Dorens

think that's seventh day adventists jac
9:29 pm
Jacula

mirandapan - Glad you got my point. The heirarchy is where it al goes wrong.
9:29 pm
MollyL

Miranda, I think Jesus was a very humble man, who spoke of the best values in life, who was misinterpreted more than he should have been.
9:29 pm
Dorens

think we're all in agreement there molly
9:30 pm
herinfernallady

Hi
9:30 pm
jmcnrick

we reject the holidays because they are quite frankly made up -- no one knows the day that Jesus was born or died (although there is an approximatel time for the death since we know it was around passover
9:30 pm
Dorens

hi herin
9:30 pm
Jacula

Dorens - in UK, that's the Quaker way. I should know, I worked for a computer firm for many years that was owned by Quakers.
9:30 pm
herinfernallady

How goes it
9:30 pm
jmcnrick

no dorens jac is correct--quakers rejected holidays and drinking
9:30 pm
jmcnrick

hi herin
9:30 pm
herinfernallady

Plus a lot of the Christian holidays are actually Pagan holidays
9:31 pm
Dorens

i stand corrected... falling asleep here. five words to stumble through

9:31 pm
gremlinn

Easter and Christmas, at least.
9:31 pm
jmcnrick

exactly herin
9:31 pm

With all due respect JMC, that is why I could not espouse that kind of spirituality. I think there is a great need for celebration, no matter how you interpret what that celebration is about.

Hi, Min--thanks for your responses everyone. I play almost everyday, and love to read the chog--it's just that I'm pretty busy (but not in seeking to be powerful, really, I'm not)

we are too mirandapan, glad you decided to join us today

9:32 pm

If you don't believe in any of it, why do you play game
9:33 pm
jmcnrick

i will not impose my beliefs but i will state them
9:33 pm

too busy to be playing this silly game every day... even going to the library or friends' houses every day for a week when i had no power, just for this silly game
9:33 pm

Min: I mean the theology/spirituality stuff, not the game.
9:33 pm

Oh, I thought you meant you did not believe in Babble

There is a spirituality in believing in Nature. It would negate my soul to say I believe in nothing.

9:37 pm

I have some pretty unconventional beliefs. I don't accept the notion of free will (as most people would define it) for example.
9:37 pm

I've always thought that the operative word is BELIEF...however you choose to do that.
9:37 pm

9:37 pm

absolutey herin... and whatever you believe in is just fine.. as long as you don't step on anyone else's toes
9:37 pm
Jacula

Went for what's coyly called 'a comfort break' and came back to find an explosion of posts here. Someone, perhaps Herin (Hi Herin!) pointed out that many Christian festivals fall on days when pagan festivals do/did. Yes, that's because the priests had to convince the 'simple folk' that God knew what their festivals were and He thought of them first.

9:39 pm
Dorens

i am in awe of my mother's intolerance for others ... She is a rabid atheist/agnostic depending on the month or year, but she is absolutely dismissive of people who believe in God... started arguing with her 88 year old sister at a dinner at m house just cause my aunt wanted to thank God for having us all together. mean-spirited i think
9:39 pm
MollyL

Mourn away son, both of your brothers are alive and well.

Although it's a fine line and easy to stray from the first to the second.
9:40 pm
Dorens

much nicer i think gremlinn
9:40 pm
Jacula

Westford, I was saying earlier how much I enjoyed your thing about the rules of writing blues lyrics. I've written many and I'm glad to see I haven't sinned.
9:40 pm
MollyL

I have this horrible linguistic stumbling block being intolerant of intolerance.
9:41 pm

Also I tend to follow teh weather rather than dates for seasons. Like Winter was gong to be long and mild based on teh 2 weeks before solstaice

jmcnrick

you can mock me!!!! i be a silly person!!!
9:41 pm
gremlinn

I mock your punctuation!
9:41 pm
mirandapan

Now, Jac--that's not true. The folk were not simple--neither the Jews who celebrated the passover or the Christians, Easter--and God did not come up with thosse dates. It's well acknowledged that men did. And, right, they are not accurate. But they are sacred. We have an adopted son, for example, and we do not know how old he is, but we have established a birth date for him--we would never think of not celebrating it just because we aren't sure when he was born.

I think "sacred" is what you hold onto as your personal, spiritual belief. And I have always found it amusing that all you have to do is move some letters to change "scared" to "sacred".

Mirandapan - I didn't say that I thought the people were simple or that God set the celebration dates. I said that men who considered themselves respresentatives of God did both.
