People at my church seem to dislike, ignore and try to get away from me, especially this one girl who was about to leave on a trip so this was her last week at church for a while, so at the end of the service she went around to everyone in the room and hugged and said goodbye to them. She did this with everyone except me. Why is that? Why would she just completely pass over me.. And when I walked out to say bye she just ignored me. I have asked in the past if I did or said anything to upset or... [Read More]

I am single, 81 years of age and live in a two bed two bath apartment that is age restricted (55 +) I do my own cooking and cleaning, drive a car and am physically active. Some of my neighbors have someone to come in and assist them with various daily activities. In anticipation of that day when I may require Assisted Living or more I went and toured the many different facilities in my area. Rather than leave this task to my married daughter I thought I would do it myself and tell her which... [Read More]

I wonder whether I could post a very specific question, in the hope that this thread might manage to stay on topic for the duration of the discussion.

It relates solely to the USA.

It relates solely to people who murder with a gun they are legally entitled to possess. The thread might, in passing, like to list a few recent prominent instances.

Question 1: Why would you prefer the law to be changed, or not, in such a way that they had no such legal... [Read More]

The world's second-largest gem quality diamond has been discovered in Botswana, the Lucara Diamond firm says.
The 1,111-carat stone was recovered from its Karowe mine, about 500km (300 miles) north of the capital, Gaborone

This news got me wondering,apart from it being used as an abrasive and as a pretty decoration, what really is the value of this "Second largest diamond"?

Urban Gardening lover

Nov 26, 2015 - 7:27 AM - by alexsowter
Hi, I'm relatively new to this forum, but am a keen gardener, especially when it comes to Urban Gardening.

I work at an NGO which works with smallholder farmers who have been learning from their innovative approach to gardening.

For example, they've recently taken inspiration from smallholder farmers to design a beehive, vertical garden and bug trap for the home. The products are super cheap at $15 (~£10), due to them being made out of foldable material. Anyone... [Read More]

Christie's 1934 story sees the detective drawn into solving an intrigue on the famous Orient Express train travelling from Istanbul in Turkey to London.

After an American passenger using a false name is murdered while the train is stuck in a snow drift, Poirot discovers everyone on the train had some connection to the murder victim and are all therefore under suspicion.

The Changing face of Britain and the World?

There is no doubt the face of Europe and the UK has changed massively over the past 20 years. The town I moved out of London to settle in 40 odd years ago has altered amazingly. We now have a Nepalese restaurant and many Nepalese shops and a hairdresser, several Polish shops and all the super markets have Polish sections.We also have butcher that is staffed by middle eastern looking men that sell African type goods, plantains, strange fish, odd shaped exotic vegetables. And of course there is... [Read More]

Should Canada and the U.S. tolerate an intolerant Islam?

I have linked below to a debate in Britain on Islam and their view of intolerance and as to whether the West should reciprocate in kind and not tolerate Islam and their ideology.

I also have linked to two speakers who look a bit deeper at the Western situation facing Canada the U.S. as well as other Western countries. I have intentionally ignored the French situation as well as what is happening in the... [Read More]

"If you create a product that allows evil monsters to communicate in this way, to behead children, to strike innocents - whether it's at a game in a stadium, in a small restaurant in Paris, take down an airline - that is a big problem," Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, told MSNBC.

China must stop land reclamation in disputed waters in the South China Sea, US President Barack Obama has said.

BBC News

I note the use of the word "must".

Hah. You and whose army, big boy.

It's scarcely the language of diplomacy and it's a hostage to fortune, since the Chinese are so obviously not going to comply.

The War With Isis Can Never Be Won

Until the Isis Belief System and the rewards of Martyrdom are totally discredited Isis will continue to grow and appeal to some Muslims as well as non Muslims, but who will effectively be able to do the discrediting, and do it in a manner that Isis members themselves will believe the discrediting?

I don't advocate this, but until every Muslim on earth ceases to exist this so called war will never end

One could, I suppose, put it that way.

This is pretty bizarre. My heart goes out to my friends in Paris, and to the members of FG who live in France. May this be resoled quickly.
