  1. Can't say I'm surprised. My little would-be tank mechanic has decided to go with working on farm equipment instead.
  2. This is more my speed today,
  3. And in the realm of mildly amusing... my daughters have refused to even get their ears pierced (mine are and I like my earrings). No tats, no piercings, no whatever... because "Everyone does that, Mom. So, we're rebelling and not doing it." roflmao. Twerps.
  4. Oddly enough (or maybe not) the most beautiful tattoo I ever saw in person was on some woman's calf. Gorgeous artwork, all in blue. Reproduction of a statue. Just have to hope she never gets fat legs...
  5. I withhold judgment on anyone with tattoos unless they are face tattoos. you have face tattoos, you are either crazy or stupid, but in both cases you are unemployable. Except that comic with the face tattoos, and he's self-employed, and not on the dole, so I'm good with him.
  6. OTOH, he's been reading Thomas Sowell, so there is hope for him.
  7. I call bull. They just don't want to release data that reflects poorly on the policies of their Overlord and Master, the Puppet Bidet.
  8. How would we know? How do we know Homo sapiens have souls?
  9. I like my husband's, but I don't have any. I've seen a few that were gorgeous art, and thousands that were no better than the Sunday comics. A few decades back, I used to draw something I thought I'd like as a tattoo, put it away for a year or two and then get it out again... and I never wanted it as a tattoo at that point, so no tattoos. Even if I could find something I liked long-term,) they don't age well, getting blurry over time, and 2) I'd want it someplace I could see it so it isn't upside down to me... without being upside down to everyone else 'cause that just looks silly. That seriously eliminates nearly everywhere, or requires a design that doesn't have a specific orientation, or which is mirror imaged top to bottom. Eventually, this requires too much thought and energy, and I just go work on a quilt instead...
  10. Well, I checked it like you said and the alternator is fine. But now not even the bright headlights work. All the headlights slowly died. I have no idea why.
  11. I'm kind of laughing and kind of not, since my truck headlights slowly dimmed to nothing as I drove home last night. The brights still worked, but there was nothing from the regular lights. I hope the regular lights and the bright lights are on separate fuses and its just a fuse and NOT THE ALTERNATOR. I'm going on vacation this month and that vehicle needs to run for the rest of the family that is staying home, so they can drive to work. At least I made it home... although I expect I annoyed the crap out of all the oncoming traffic (of which there was an unusual amount for that time and location).
  12. That's Akron on any normal night, except usually it's the civilians shooting each other full of lead.
  13. Give it a try (and let us know how well it works). And/or put down throw rugs?
  14. Today... all the crazies are out in force. Perhaps tomorrow they will all crawl back under their rocks. Hope never dies...
  15. Absolutely nothing on the MSM is trustworthy at this point. It's more accurate to simply assume everything they are saying is a lie.
  16. Later authors I like... Larry Correia, Jim Butcher (more fantasy than sci-fi), John Ringo, David Weber, Tom Kratman, Michael Z Williamson, Eric Flint...
  17. She was a favorite of mine. I got in trouble in school all the time reading Witch World novels under the desk...
  18. Gas in Michigan today was $5.19. It was $4.99 in Ohio. Imma fill up here before I drive home...
  19. I grew up in a UMC church. The one here in town went all leftist touchy-feely-anything goes a few years back and is now defunct, the property for sale. I'd consider an independent one, but my husband won't. My oldest daughter went off and found an Orthodox Presbyterian Church with a fabulous pastor (and way more formal/high church than anything she grew up with). I'm good with that. Youngest daughter says people ruin religion, and she refuses to have anything to do with organized religion anymore. I... can relate to that reaction, but I'm not happy about it. I envy my parents -they've belonged to the same Sunday School class for over 50 years - even when they switched churches for several years, they still attended the weekly lunches and other get-togethers. They've been close friends my entire life. That's what it's supposed to be...
  20. Yes. It was a Baptist church, so it SHOULD have been entirely under the control of its own congregation, answerable to no one but God… unfortunately the pastor decided he was god, and the elders chose to protect him instead of the congregation (they completely failed in their duty to the congregation)… allowing the pastor to stomp all over the church constitution which, if followed, would have protected us from his insanity. The 54% of the congregation he has under his thumb/brainwashed/too lazy to go thru another year+ long pastor search… well they chose to overlook the violations, forced the rest of to leave- and hate us for leaving. I’m just not used to hypocrisy on quite that large and blatant a scale. Well, I expect it from the political left and the MSM, but not at church…
  21. I keep reminding myself. It’s helping that nearly 60 people left - and we’re meeting every week until the end of the summer just to sing and pray, led by the the assoc pastor that the “leadership” of the former church forced to resign. We’re all a bit leery of just forming a new church… anger, bitterness, and/or spite would be a poor foundation. In the meantime, we’re all just visiting other churches on Sunday mornings. That’s been… interesting, and occasionally deafening…
  22. As much as I like my LDS friends… I gave up 50 pages into the Book of Mormon about 35 years ago.
