   Surfhut  The young women in my office who are nearly 30 dress like they are 19 and out clubbing. Totally inappropriate office dressing. They said we Baby Boomers were self-obsessed. We pale in comparison with the current 30'ish generation.

   Gerty  We've got to face it---social media and TV reality shows have made all of this acceptable.
Some of the strangest (and unhealthy ) things are viewed as 'normal' today. Go figure.

   Safetydude  Ok, so at least we have something to look at which is not all bad.

What bugs me are the obese people riding the electric powered handicapped shopping carts. Their only handicap is their weight but they think they deserve the same courtesy as a person with a missing limb.

   Straitpath posted on Faith  God is so aware of each of us. I had a miracle happen to me today. It was no coincidence. It involved His putting into my hand something very dear to me which I had believed lost or even stolen. I am humbled and grateful.

   Straitpath posted on Coffee Klatch  I am thinking that from what I gather, I live farther West than others on the site. I live in Utah. Do any of you live in California? I know Surfhut used to and that cat person lived in Washington. Just curious. By the way, I like the relaxed atmosphere we have on the site now. Do wish more would join in though.

   Bettijo  I, too, wish we had more contributors. I don't think there are over 12 of us; maybe 15. There are probably "lurchers" who do not post; if so, I wish they would. I miss the folks we have lost.

Incidentally, I live in Georgia.

   Straitpath posted on Pet Peeves  I am a mother of seven and I dearly love them and their spouses. I am the oldest of eight siblings whose families I love very much. I have thirty four grandchildren that I love very much. With that many people to deeply love and be concerned about, and with life's trials my life is a series of big and small worries, as is natural. I lost a dearly loved brother in November to an accident. My beloved daughter just suffered a miscarriage. I have two drug addict teen grandsons who are ruining their lives. I have two granddaughters who are contemplating marrying apparently the wrong men. I have much faith, but I get worn out. Tonight I got the message that a grandson was involved in a daredevil ski accident and was apparently paralyzed. His 27 year old brother and another married grandson were with him when the accident occurred. I go into action trying to find out what was going on, how badly was he hurt, trying to contact his parents, etc. finally the 27 year old brother says April Fools. Cruel.

   MeiDei  As the mother of a son who was paralyzed in a freak auto accident I felt the air sucked out of you - I hope you had a brilliant come-back to the 27 year old. 7 children + 34 grandchildren, God Bless You.

   Straitpath posted on Main Page The Lobby  Will you Catholics guide us through the Lent, Easter season again this year? I understand Tuesday was shrove day, or repentance, confession day? Ash Wednesday, today, is where one uses ash to make a cross on the forehead? What is the symbolism of the day? Why forty days before Easter? We learned some of this last year on this site and I, as a Mormon, thoroughly enjoyed it.

   Iacta alea est  The 40 days is symbolic of Jesus' 40 days fasting in the wilderness while being tempted by Satan. The ashes are supposed to be made from the burning of the previous year's leftover palm fronds. as the ashes are applied to the forehead, the priest says "Remember man that you are dust, and into dust you shall return." - at least in my parish. I am a Catholic, tho' not very knowledgeable.

   Balogreene  I am and was raised Protestant. Sometimes the symbolic or Catholicism adds to the mysticism, making belief magical.

   Timber Queen  As Lacta already shared, the forty days is in imitation of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert just before starting His public ministry. The 40 days begin on Ash Wednesday by observing a day of fasting and abstaining from meat, as well as receiving the ashes to remind us of our mortality. Sundays during Lent are excluded from the 40 days, as the Lord’s Day is a day for glory, worship and joy, not fasting and penance. Lent is a time to turn our weaknesses into strengths and our vices into virtues. Catholics are called to focus on three main spiritual exercises during Lent; prayer, fasting, and almsgiving (charity ). Fasting often takes the form of “giving up” something you either enjoy or is a bad habit. Besides something temporal it’s also good to fast from interior things like anger, frustration, or holding grudges. There are many devotional aids available with a daily Scriptural meditation, prayer, and a penance for the day to offer for personal sins or the sins of the whole world. A sample penance would be, “Do something kind for someone who does not like you.” As part of our fasting, on Fridays during Lent we abstain from meat. On Fridays most Catholic churches offer a devotion known as The Stations of the Cross where we follow Jesus through His persecution, passion, and death. Beginning with His condemnation to the cross by Pilot, we follow fourteen stations (episodes ) along the road to Calvary, His death and burial. We become intimate with the price He paid for our redemption. Lent ends on Holy Thursday night at the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, which begins the Sacred Triduum (three days ) including Good Friday, Holy Saturday evening/Easter morning. I am a certified catechist. My email is available for more information. God bless and a happy Lent!

   BirdsNest  There are many online places to go to find out what works for what but as for as for us, some things work others do not. It is more of a try it scenario. And do choose a quality manufacturer. Don't buy supplements from the Dollar Tree or any place like that. Cinnamon works for most with diabetes. Vitamin D3 is especially important for everyone. It is a good idea to have your D levels tested so you have a benchmark number to work with. Hagar just had his tested, he is at a level a bit higher than most, but he is fighting Lyme disease.

"Yep, top of the line, completly digital. Cost me over four thousand dollars" he said, "but worth every penny"!
"What kind is it"? asks the bartender.
