My daily emails have stopped.. apparently around October 19, I didn't even notice.
The last time I participated in the 2cent emails was October 8.

My motivation on FC is definitely waning. :(

Off-Topic / Re: Do you use cash much anymore?

I rarely use cash.  I have to use cash to buy my free range eggs because it's at an egg farm & they only take cash, that is about it.

There is a change shortage here, & many stores require exact change for purchases  Easier with a card.

I was planning on going to vote on Tuesday, but i've heard that my local polling spot has been changed & now we have only a couple spots for the whole city.  I'm still going to go vote, but i'll be bringing my filled out ballot in case there is a line & a drop off.  No drop-off, i'll be standing in line listening to an audio book.

I like to browse Nordstrom Rack & Revolve for fun :)

Off-Topic / Re: are you going to have a Pumpkin
« on: October 27, 2020, 04:13:47 pm »Message ID: 1343315
Yes.  We currently have two, one mini pumpkin sitting on my fireplace mantle & a medium sized one that was going to go on my porch, but has been sitting uncut & natural in my living room-- it has a nice long stem on it.

No one seems interested in painting or carving them, so there they sit.

Today is the 7 month anniversary of "15 days to slow the spread"...  the virus has over 99.9% recovery rate. Slow the spread has been achieved, IMHO it's all about control.

It's a joke at this point, I think.  My sister-in-law was found to have had it & had zero symptoms & didn't even know it, she is asthmatic as is her son...if you get it it's not necessarily a death sentence. 

Yes, I have CoronaVirus Fatigue, it's all quite tiresome.

This site's discussion board has been reminding me of Twitter for awhile now.  Fortunately, if you want to ignore the Trolls - here & over there in the Twitterverse - you can opt to mute them; here you can mute them, where you never see their posts - unless someone one quotes them - by clicking the 'Ignore Member' link under one of their posts.

Hope that helps :)

Not participating in Halloween trick or treating this year. So, like others, I will turn off my porch lights -- which are usually on all night -- and hopefully not get trick or treaters.  Not even going to decorate my front yard this year.  The beginning of the end for me, I think.

Did you see the video where they are promoting people to hand out candy via long tubes, where the tube is put near the trick or treaters bag, and then the candy is put in the other end by the candy giver & the candy slides down the tube into the trick or treaters bag -- so dumb.   Just skip it this year.  It's just candy.

Clown World, USA.

Trump pressed him hard and Biden looked like the kid who got so frustrated that all he could do is call names

It was somewhat of a twist for it to be Biden that was calling Trump names & telling him to shut-up -- who says "shut-up" to the President of the United States, or anyone really.  That nervous laughter he kept using when he couldn't defend himself.  First Presidential debate I ever watched, they should just put the two candidates together & let them debate without any kind of biased moderator.
I think Biden was foolish to accept debating Trump.He had to know there would be a zillion interruptions.Unless he felt let the public see how rude he really was.

Name calling?He called him a clown and worst president of all time.I have no prob him as a clown....but i thought 2nd Bush was worst president of all time.

Bush #2 was up there for sure; but Bush #1 was pretty bad as well --Bush, the elder, started the US towards one world order & pushed us towards globalization. Thankfully we have Trump & not Jeb.  Enough Bushes already.

I had no idea who Mac Davis was... looked him up & I do recognize him.  I think he was popular in my youth... I'll have to research.

They say deaths come in threes... Helen, now Mac... RIP Mac Davis.


#3  Eddie Van Halen died of throat cancer
RIP Eddie

Are they planning to use the same picture of "Uncle Ben" on the new packaging of "Ben's Original"?  Or are they planning to completely remove all Black people off all packaging to solve racism?

For being "neutral", you sure have a lot of political opinions.

Just sayin'.
Yes i do.

I DONT vote.

Just sayin.

Do U have a problem with truth?

Just because you don't vote doesn't mean you're neutral, when you have a clear bias & always volunteer to express your political opinion which isn't a neutral one... if you were truly "neutral" you wouldn't have bothered to start this thread, nor would you be bothering to express your non-neutral opinion on politics trying to persuade others towards your bias. Neutral means staying out of it... do you ever see Switzerland ever weighing in on world affairs? No... because they are neutral & stay out it.

Cognitive Dissonance is hard for some, perhaps that applies to you?
