   Balogreene posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Gram, this was 6 years ago, a 3-week old kitten, and a 6-month old Shih Tzu, meeting for the first time.

   Balogreene posted on Shopper's Beware Caveat Emptor  A response to MeiDei. Ive gotten a lot of stuff from I keep looking these things up, and zulily was recently appropriated by QVC. You still have to be careful, there are no returns. But, if you watch the sizing etc, they are good quality, and nice looking clothes.

   MeiDei  It's nice, after years of rooting for the underdogs, to have them do so well - Theo must share in their success.

   Balogreene posted on Coffee Klatch  You know, these guys are all self-described as introverted, or autistic. So, there is no walking around and chatting to people. I've started taking math courses from I heard the ads on the radio, then when I expressed an interest in learning more Math, my boss recommended them. Go online, look at the courses, they are at a minimum $300. But, but, but, they have a lot of sales. I've never paid more than $85 for a course, more like $35 to $50. I have to admit, I buy them ahead of need. I now have Fundamentals of Mathematics (boy do I need this review of math, starting with addition and ending with statistics ), Algebra I, Algebra II, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and trigonometry. I also have Mind-Bending Math, paradoxes and puzzles (for logical thinking, and writing proofs ), a drawing course, and a photography course.

I usually watch a couple of videos on the weekend, and study during the week. I'm still in the Fundamentals class because it is refreshing my memory. I almost flunked HS algebra (got all A's in Geometry ), but I need the refresher before I get to Algebra. Amazing how much I've forgotten since 1968.

It is great to stretch my mind. It is also great to realize, I do know this stuff (I'm on Fractions now ).

   FlatCityGirl  You just made my head hurt!

Just hearing the word "math" spoken aloud can give me reflux.

In all seriousness, standing ovation.

It's good to never stop learning.

   Balogreene  I do not like Math. I think I have a hard time with it. But, come on, we all use it every day to do our checkbooks, use recipes, etc. You just wouldn't believe the formulas I see every day. One guy, a retired Navy Captain and PhD Oceanographer told me you always have to have a mathematical formula, so you make it look good.

I'm loving this learning, really stretching me.

   Balogreene posted on Coffee Klatch  I'm here. I really am. I "lost" my job the end of December. I was a little ahead of them, got a new job starting the middle of January, turned in my resignation, and had just a "small" amount of time off.

I cannot say how bad my last job was, because I didn't know it until I started my new job.I switched from Army to Navy. I switched from a large public company to a small private company. This company has a refrigerator full of water, orange juice, V-8, grapefruit juice, apple juice, Dr. Pepper, and a ton of Coca Cola products. Another refrigerator holds lunches, wine and beer (for after work ). All free for employees. They also have a Keurig, with a huge selection for employees (free ), hot and cold filtered water. My last job had a Keurig, but we had to supply our own coffee, sugar, cream, tea, etc. They would not supply plates, napkins, cutlery, cups, etc. This company supplies all. I know the difference is Shareholders want more money, and don't care about employee morale. I like the morale thing.
I work with PhD Mathematicians, and Physicists. They are nice people, but are huge introverts. After just under 6 months, I finally figured out what they need, and what these projects are.
I am so happy. And am making a LOT more money.

   Balogreene posted on Main Page The Lobby  Why no more Roger Stone? I like him. I don't always believe him, but to ban him?

Okay, he bashed the establishment, does that mean Lucianne is establishment, I never thought so before.

   FlatCityGirl  I saw that. I don't know what the deal is. I don't like him. It could have something to do with Stone not having even a nodding acquaintance with the truth ---like most ranting, raving, wild-eyed Liberals. I can't see banning him, though.

   Sugarplum17  I've seen Roger Stone on I don't think he is a liberal. I know he worked for Trump and has authored several books - one on Clintons and one on Bush family. I daresay he's not a fan of either of the dynasties. I don't think he's been sued for libel. He definitely is a fan of his old boss.

   FlatCityGirl  Okay, SC, since you're an insider and privy to information the rest of us are not aware of, tell us why the Staff --or our Hostess, has allowed the acrimony and open warfare to continue? People have been banned over the years for faaaaaaaaar less than what is going on there now.

Why can't posters be allowed to like or dislike whichever candidate they chose without being called names? And what happened to the No Chatting rule? What happened to the No Attacking Other Posters rule?

When I post an opinion, and the next poster tells me that I'm an ignorant cretin for that opinion, it's hard not to respond.

I've not seen every response to every article in the last few months, but I've seen a lot, and only one time that I can remember has a staff member told a poster not to attack other posters. I don't get it.

Maybe they figure if they banned everyone who is breaking the rules right now, there would be three posters left, because almost everyone is into the food fight.

   MeiDei  Passions are extreme during this primary in particular - we might dub it The Season without Reason. While I agree with you, I like to think: This too shall pass. I've not committed to anyone yet, still weighing all - it's a long time between now & November & I suspect it will be a bumpy ride, lit up by flaring tempers. Smile, the wrong animals are getting their Spring distemper shots : )

   StormCnter  FCG, you're making an unwarranted assumption. I make no claim to being "an insider". I simply mentioned that what we see published on the forum might not be the entire story. You should write to the staff if you are seeking specifics.

   FlatCityGirl  Oh, sorry. I misread your post. I thought it sounded like you have information we don't have.

I really don't care a whit about Stone being banned.

I am curious as to why the open warfare is allowed to go on, but I don't think I'll be asking the staff. I don't want to draw the ire of the wrong person and get banned.

When November comes and goes, and we are getting ready for January and a new face in the White House, Lucianne will still be standing, and depending on the person getting ready to assume the office, I will be interested to see what happens to the mortal enemies that have been made during this idiotic campaign season.

There has been a lot of ugliness directed at those who don't like Trump, and a lot of ugliness going to other way, too; things have been said, names have been called, and I'm guessing that some of it isn't going to be forgotten any time soon.

   Balogreene posted on Suggested Reading  I'm listening to "Duplicity" by Newt. I'm not sure about it (I do listen at work, so don't concentrate ). The President is a woman who took political power after her husband, a Senator died (ala Theresa Heinz Kerry ), and her opponent in the race is a billionaire who became Governor from Florida. I don't know where Newt gets his ideas, but this one suddenly became current.

It is also about the CIA, Intelligence, Terrorism, a bunch of stuff. I am not ready to turn it off, but, it does become difficult.
