Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

And I've lived long enough to remember various comets, asteroids, etc. were supposed to hit Earth at certain times, but none did. Back in May 1910.. How old are you?? :heehee Kara, if it was me, I would be my helpful self and let MIL stew in her own juice. Of course if she really is going into deme...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Pup, what you're seeing is the Perseid meteor showers, they normally peak Aug. 11-13. I can't see them where I am because of the light pollution. And I've lived long enough to remember various comets, asteroids, etc. were supposed to hit Earth at certain times, but none did. Back in May 1910, Halley...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

It's been said that the two people who cause the most trouble in a marriage are the mother-in-law and the sister-in-law. Your MIL sounds like both my mom and my younger sister. My sister, after she took half my inheritance, sent me a nasty email after I'd checked with her boss (an attorney) and aske...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Getting back to the hearing vs. deaf issue, language is primary learned through hearing. If your hearing is weak or absent, that makes it harder for you to learn language. I once read a piece that explained it this way: Suppose you were in a soundproof glass room; you only speak, read and understand...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

About the subject of people messing up electronics....when I was in college getting my A.A. in Broadcasting, one of my professors told us he had that problem. He said one of his professors when he was in college said he had too much electricity in his body. As for science vs. religion, Albert Einste...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I thought the three cords, red, gold and silver were interesting. In Ecclesiastes Solomon writes about the silver cord being loosed; I think the red was "down below", so of course you hated that one, the silver was death, so of course you saw your family weeping, and the gold was life, so of course ...

Having a bit of trouble posting this, but here's the URL: http://icanhascheezburger.com/2011/07/29/funny-pictures-doctor-who-cats/?fromBOW=1 I'm hopeless at cut and paste. EDIT: Just checked this, click on it and it's fine, however some are marked as being NSFW (not safe for work); one is marked for...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Amy, if a proposed title of a story is also a song title, it can still be used. Titles aren't copyrightable. I've looked at books that had titles similar to song titles, etc., and though I don't read them--not enough time--I read the backs and they actually sound pretty clever. Last Sunday we had a ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Amy, when my guts aren't behaving--usually the opposite of your recent problem--I get some kefir, usually at Trader Joe's. I buy the pomegranate and the strawberry--the plain is unsweetened, which makes it less appealing, and besides, what comes out the end would put a skunk to shame, to put it mild...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

It's called a cakewalk because it was a competition for people to perform the fanciest steps, with small cakes as prizes for the best stepper. I remember one time in grade school we had a cakewalk, but it was more like musical chairs. Except what they did was draw a circle on the blacktop of the pla...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

On the subject of women pastors, in most cases when masculine pronouns are used, it actually refers to both sexes, as does the words man and men. Furthermore, the NT shows Priscilla working alongside her husband Aquilia, spreading the Gospel, and correcting a new convert. I have a KJV Bible which ha...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Regarding the royal couple--they actually don't become Prince and Princess until Charles takes the throne. You could ask Colin Swan more about that. What Paul wrote concerning women was based on the culture and values of his day. Women who went around without a veil or headcovering were considered i...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hey Dee Jay since you've been popping in lately are you up for the questions? Most people ask normal ones but there's one wacky dude on here that asks wacky questions. Oh maybe I told you last night but Emily andher boyfriend got a Border Border Collie mix puppy. They named him Bentley (my idea) uh...

If you were to print that in the papers out here, it would cause a major outrage, if not a riot. Though I totally agree with Teddy.

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

You should've seen my maternal grandparents' house--it was chock-a-block with stuff like you wouldn't believe. Basement, both floors, and attic too. They kept every get-well card my one aunt who had polio in her leg got when she was growing up, and they filled a box! My younger sister is something o...
