Annie, oh you’re Deborah Yost! I wondered who Deborah Yost was. LOL. A warm welcome and I’m so glad you brought your beautiful water-lily as well. Such georgous flowers. The spell-check, well, we’re getting in MacBeth’s witches to do the spell checking (it’s a bit of a joke on another thread). We just need some eye of newt, a toad that’s lived under the same rock for 31 days and baboon’s blood to cool the cauldron to get started.
4x2, hello and welcome to the forum.
cactus wren, welcome and so happy to see you here. I for one would LOVE to hear some of your stories. When my mother died 11 years ago I was there holding her hand and when she passed I had this powerful vision of people on the other side waiting for her. Her mother, my maternal grandmother, who died when I was three, was standing right there waiting for her to cross over. I felt her presence so strongly, almost like she was standing there in person. I almost said, “hello grandmother” but I didn’t. She was the most powerful presence and my mother and her had been very close.
Cactus, btw, I am so glad you saw the real light re assumed/supposedly God-ordained “male supremacy”. I always think, sorry, I don’t do merit-optional reverence, ergo, if I revere someone it’s based on their individual merit, not whether or not they happened to be born with a penis. It seems to me whether someone has a vagina or a penis factors very little into how meritorious I consider them.
Oh Lou, I’m laughing at your built-in bullshit detector. Mine was always SCREAMING when I used to encounter Pentecostal “Christian” ministers. Warning, Warning Will Robinson!!! Snake-oil salesmen.
Hey TinfoilHattie, a warm welcome to you. It can indeed get a bit scary down the rabbit hole but it’s never dull! LOL.
Limey, great to see you. The site builders here must be very impressive - I have next to zero computer skills and even I worked out how to set this forum up in just a few minutes. I went to so many others which just seemed unfathomable. I was really relieved to find this host.
Hi jimmy, welcome, sounds like you’re very well situated there.
Rev, thanks for joining us and a warm welcome. That Coast to Coast radio there sounds quite intriguing. I need to tune into that sometime. I guess we could get it here in NZ. What were some of the most memorable things you heard on it which stick out in your mind?
Ericcccccccccccccccccc, what can I say? The King is in da house!! All hail King Eric!
Percy, hi again. Is that your dog? It’s a Smooth Coated Collie, isn’t it? I bred Collies for a long, long time. I always thought one day I’d like to get a Smooth. An apple never falls far from the tree is a good saying. I use that down here sometimes too.
Say John and Lou (and anyone else who gets those feelings), do you ever run into anyone and almost gasp and go, wow, that person is like PURE EVIL. It happens to me only rarely, but now and again……..maybe once every five years I’ll meet someone and my blood will feel like it is running cold and I’ll just feel they are “pure evil”. I’ve always been right too.
