  1. Nope No Chipping! If children were meant to come with their own set of embedded chips, they'd also come with owners manuals and remote controls.

    Dried Milk

    Don't know how long it can be kept, just know we keep ours in the deep freeze. We use it when we need it, mostly for cooking cause the kids can't get past the taste straight up, so we have to hide it while cooking or baking something with it.
  3. Where do I live? I'll try to be cheerful and skip over all the unpleasantries. Being an Army Brat, I've never really known Home Sweet Home. I've hunted for it all my life and suppose I will only know it in the next life, at least I hope so... Hmmm... Southern Mississippi approximately 30 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico give or take a few miles here or there depending upon the road you travel and about 30 miles give or take a few west of Mobile. Out in the woods, if you know what a tree looks like just imagine a whole herd of them all jumbled together nicely in their own ways, four acre yard. Fruit & Fruit Trees growing here in a small orchard: Blueberries Grapes Muskidine Apple Peach Pear The front drive or road leading to the house has just recently been paved, it was one of the last two dirt roads left in the county up until just recently. It is lined with rose/pink crepe myrtle trees. There are also mimosa, dogwood, azalea, oaks (3 different kinds I think), pines, cedars, weeping willows, Japanese magnolias, both pink and purple. Southern Magnolias I suppose through the woods we live several miles from Belengrath Gardens. Let's see, there are many creeks and rivers running through the area in various locations. The weather the last few days have been breezy and over cast, however the heat will come and it gets sweltering down here. The road we live on is named after my grandfather, but if they had asked him what he would like to have the road named, he would have called this place something like "Breezy Hills Estates". While sitting outside here, it gets so quite that you can hear the crickets and whippoorwill's at night and the the mocking birds and woodpeckers during the day as well as a blue jay scolding something. You can watch the dragonflies zoom through along with the hummingbirds as well as watch some pretty hefty squirrels run up and down the trees and such chattering away at one another as they play tag round and round the trees.
  4. *nods* Yes, sometimes it would be nice to be a masculine brute and just punch someone's lights out when they deserve it and get it over with, rather than having to fret over it all girly style.
  5. *spins round & round singing* It's Snowing! It's Snowing! It's Snowing! How cool it must be that it is snowing somewhere! Down here it's a bit overcast, and a cool 75 degrees since sundowning.
  6. Who me? Nah... Is there a paying job for doing that? Got a link you can share? I have tried playing chess and checkers with myself, but it's hard to out wit oneself...
  7. What?I thought you opened the door with this thread...
  8. If I take the time and energy to research to create a new character, I will only do so for pay! And then, I might even create more than one! The more the merrier... Otherwise, it isn't worth the time and effort...
  9. I'm not one to enjoy being harsh, I avoid it at all costs if possible, cause I don't like the feeling of hurting others. It takes a great deal to back me in the the harshness corner. {...and I do come out of that harshness corner quicker for others than I do for myself} However, I do agree with a lot of the things that Elphaba points out, maybe it's the professional writer in me that does, since I get paid to express and pay attention to what I'm relaying to others. I know how much goes into pouring out your heart in personal posts and I know how much mind work and wordsmithing goes into a proper piece of writing, no matter the subject. To be honest, when I read Snow's post (thank you Snow) and went to look for myself, it did literally make me ill to my stomach, but only for a second or two. Not sure, why I had that reaction, maybe because I've only heard of people doing such and never actually came across one before and knew what I was looking at. Maybe because, I was sending heart vibrations to someone and felt duped at that moment, but everyone makes mistakes and none of us are perfect except in the way which Heavenly Father created us to be. However, I am one of those forgive and forget kinda people. Thank you (((bodhigirlsmiles))), for your apology. Like I said in the personal message to you, It'll be alright, we still love you.
  10. My dad was great with numbers, you could call him a mathematician of sorts, he was also great in card games since he could count them and remembered what had been played and generally figured out what everyone had in their hands, just by his figures. He told me the secret to math one day, and I will tell it to you. "Math is a game, learn the rules and then play by the rules and you will find the answer." So, think of math as a game and you should come to the answers more easily, as long as you know the rules. I figured out the secret to English on my own. English is not like math. In English, they teach you a rule in one chapter and then expect you to forget it in the next.
  11. Hmmm... I'm 5'8 & 3/4" tall. I'm totally full of it and not sure what it is, until checking with my family tree, then it all makes sense, I suppose. I came from another planet, must have. I'm a Pisces/Capricorn/Virgo I have denim blue eyes with a touch of rainbow sparkle. I have a rubber butt, and every time I turn around I go putt putt. And truth gets me into more trouble than lying ever did for others. Other than that, you'll have to trust that I am who I am and wait like everyone else for the book or movie of the week.
  12. Yep, that's right! Walk right up, smile that smile with the bright shiny welcoming eyes, stick out your right hand and say, "Hi! I'm Sister SonSo! Nice to meet you." Mosey right up there in the middle of them and make a dazzling and refreshing presentation. You'll be sweeping them off their feet, before they know what hit them! Don't be shy, get out there and mingle, make yourself known. Let them learn to love you, they will you know, if you just go right on ahead and make the decision that your gonna be the breath of fresh air they been needing for a long time! As Pres. Spencer W. Kimball would say, Just "Do It!"
  13. That is funny too! I guess misconceptions about all things can be sort of like a gossip circle game that children play in English class.
  14. Wow Byte, I'm impressed. This is more the time frame than the others. And something I had no knowledge of, I thought the Icarians were Mexican Indians, when I first read the name. Thanks! Moksha*raises eyebrow*Wow, Moksha I knew you were funny, but I didn't know you talk to yourself online. Ha ha, that is funny!
