I just heard from his daughters.
It seems that Bruv passed away in his sleep, last night.

I have no more information than that, at the moment.
He was one of the bright lights around here, and among those whose posts were a delight to read.

Do I spend time or does time spend me?

Mickiel's Avatar
What a question that I ask myself now , I wouldn't have even asked this 30 years ago. I ask now because of wisdom and because the bag is full of foolishness. Time is a serious teacher and it gets between our ears and molds our minds like nothing else.

How did you spend your time today, or did time spend you? Did you allow yourself to be manipulated and swept through the day?

A thread of whining and self pity

Sep 06, 2018 - 7:05 PM - by Clodhopper
Apologies first to Ahso for hijacking his thread and to 4part for hijacking his undoubtedly very difficult admission of Bipolar. My post was a totally inappropriate reaction to that post, induced by a strong and honest emotional sympathetic reaction to his admission but nonetheless totally inappropriate.


I knew a bipolar person years ago so I know where 4 part goes, to some extent. I couldn't stop her suicide attempt but no-one could so I... [Read More]

Chaotic start - to supreme court hearing

Sep 05, 2018 - 6:06 PM - by tude dog
tude dog's Avatar
OK, it is obvious that the Democratic Party is suffering some kind of seizure over the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice. The fear is this particular nominee has shown a tendency to respect the text of the Constitution. Bad news for those who are used to using the courts to legislate when they don't have the popular vote.

Last night, rain, lighting and tremendous thunder.

Not much in wind and I don't believe the temperature went much below 68F/20C. These photos were taken just before and after Sunrise, Not photoshopped but they look more colorful than I experienced, but it was a beautiful morning.

Started with 15 feral cats. Patty the care giver adopted all. With the cooperation of a local vet who gave a discount they all were spayed or neutered.
It is natural that cats would disappear in a rural area next to a highway.
Patty built a cat house with electric heating blanket.

Trump, how long can he last ?

Just watched a video of Trump admitting he made payments to keep his girlfriends quiet prior to the election.
His defence, it wasn't out of the election fund but his own money.

So he wins for honesty...............with his disciples.

If a person is being poisoned slowly or poisoning themselves with say arsenic slowly, would we call that a disease or say that the internal organs that the poison is affecting are diseased?

Or might we say that, since the skin is now recognized as an organ, that a skin burn is a disease?

If the answer to either or both of those question is no, why then do we say that drugs or alcohol or smoking is the cause of organ disease or the behavior is itself a disease?

Are we moving towards introversion in our lives?

Aug 17, 2018 - 5:42 AM - by Mickiel

I was thinking the other day about how we are using our freedom of expression. The question came up between me and some neighbors concerning how much more or less we are sharing communication with each other. Some felt they only held back if it were new people that they confronted. Others felt that the attitude of the other person gave the green light to more fruitful conversation. Still. Some see it frighteningly becoming easy to shut down a

Socialist London bookshop Bookmarks was attacked over the weekend by a "far-right mob" and is now calling for solidarity following the "Nazi attack".

By the nonsense the gobby cameraman was shouting they aren't too bright, which is all the more frightening.

I'm not sure whether I've mentioned the boy backpacking but since I'm typing I'll put up a thread. He's been out along bridleways and rural footpaths and he likes it. I've carried camping gear and he likes nights out in a tent too. We're building up from there.

Being seven he can't carry anything heavy. Experimenting, he can take 2.5 kilos with no trouble. Anything over 3 kilos seems excessive, I weigh his pack at the door to make sure 2.5 is the limit. In American that's 5.5... [Read More]
