I cannot stomach them myself, but my wife loves them and has several recipes that she really enjoys.

I'm making Adobo chicken this weekend.  I usually use different parts like thighs, *bleep* and legs but this time I'm using boneless *bleep*.

Damn profanity filters!!!

(I can say "damn" but you cannot say "b r e a s t s").

I have twice already this spring decided to swap out the winter glass for the summer screens in my front and back screen doors, and then didn't get it done either time due to laziness and/or other tasks and errands taking precedence. I am happy that I got distracted. This past weekend it was rainy and freezing and on my walk this morning I had to wear earmuffs to fend off a cold air earache.

In another month or two it will be impossible to bear the heat without air conditioning. :sweat: :sweat:

Did JJ just move in with you?

Its becoming more clear why U support Trump.

I do not understand your need to bring up Jedi Johnnie when dialoging with me. We are different people. The fact that we both believe in the holiness of Christmas and Easter celebrations does not make us roommates.

I also do not understand what my political persuasions have to do with my Christian beliefs. Granted, Trump was a supporter of many of the Christian values, but he falls quite short on many other Christian values. Those are still two very different philosophies - and for me, Trump was merely the lesser of two evils when it came to Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. So I am still confused how my defense of an attack on Christianity shows my support for Trump.

But go ahead and continue...

This was a Mother's Day thread that you hijacked and turned into a diatribe against Satanist/Christian beliefs.
I won't continue to draw the conversation away from Mother's Day, but as I have in the past, I will speak up when I see a ridiculous claim of perverting Christian beliefs into Satanic B.S.

I've said my peace and you will no doubt have the last word. My decision to not respond further is not a concession to your argument, but a choice to not further spiral the discussion away from Mother's Day.
But I'm sure we will have some dialog in other threads elsewhere!   ;)

Happy Mother's Day!  :rose: :heart: :rose:

Not under any Trump spell, just looking to call out the un-level playing field as to all Republicans/conservatives - not limited to only Trump. (You would see that very point that this is not a Trump-centric view if you read my earlier un-edited post). But the choice of many to remain blind to that bias is a choice I can do nothing about.

Throughout the course of these discussion please remember a few things: A criticism of Biden is not an affirmation of Trump. A criticism of Obama is not affirmation of racism.

It seems he's writing blogs on sneakers or ads on the same. The 3 posts he has made has to do with the same idea. It's not written in the German language. I don't know what language it would be, maybe Scandinavian?

I was about to say the same thing. Definitely not German, but possibly Scandinavian or Icelandic maybe.

As many of you know the JWs dont celebrate Xmas,Easter etc because if a certain holiday comes from pagan origin it goes against what Jehovah has said that there are NO other gods before or after him.Satan is Gods enemy and if the celebration originated with him there is NO way Jehovah will support Satan.

Not sure how a Mother's Day thread turned into another diatribe against Christian holidays, but since you are going to say it, I am going to refute it...

Neither Christmas nor Easter are Satanic.  :angel11:

Carry on...

The funny thing here is if Biden recited the dictionary backwards the Trump squad or many Republicans would still find something to hem and haw about.

Your point is moot: (1) because he would never be able to do it; and (2) that feat has zero basis of showing his cognitive strength even if he could do it.
I wasnt complimenting Biden being a genius or gonna be a great president.It was more NON-stop of Trump regime just looking to nit-pick until dooms-day.But i thought at least YOU might have known that.

You just wanna harp how disabled the man is or how handicapped he is to have the job as president as well as many others.

As i said,Biden didnt win the presidency cos of who he is.......Trump lost it cos who he is!!!

D-d-d0 y-you unders-stand?

Once again, I understood you perfectly, but was explaining why your example made absolutely zero sense. It has nothing to do with my (or anyone else's) support for Trump and everything to do with the unequal treatment and over-inflation of all conservatives and their positions by the liberal news media. When the average news media person harps on Biden to the same extent that they harp on any Republican - then and only then we can talk about your perception that people will find fault in Biden being able to recite the alphabet backwards.

Come and find me when that happens and I will be happy to engage in your debate. Until that is the reality, don't bother because I am merely looking for a level playing field.

Throw me into the category who thinks that people need to chill out a bit at being offended by something that is clearly intended as a kind gesture. I don't typically go around wishing Happy Mother's Day to complete strangers - not because I am afraid of offending them, but just because I don't typically strike up conversations with strangers.

Another thing that I typically would not do is bite off the head of someone who was trying to offer a kind gesture to me - even if it does not apply to me personally.

This story is apples to the oranges of the topic, but I think it still applies.

Several years ago I had an incident where I threw my back out and it was excruciating for me to walk. I was able to alleviate some of that pain through the use of a cane. I had to travel somewhere for work one day and stopped in a fast food place for lunch. I used my cane to get around and some stranger saw my mobility problems as I walked past his table. Rather than just let me go by, he had a look of concern on his face and he outright asked me if I had been injured in the service. I quickly set him straight that it was just a temporary setback and thanked him for his concern. He was about to thank me for my 'sacrifice' without knowing me or my circumstances.

I cannot express the internal pride I felt for this man's gesture - even though it was incomplete and incorrect - and I tried to express that 'gratitude' back toward him for the obvious respect he would have shown had my situation matched his presumption. If I had snapped back at him: "I just have a bad back you imbecile!" what purpose would that have served to him or to me?

I know this is not the same situation as the person wishing a Happy Mother's Day to someone who doesn't fit the bill. But responding to a mistaken compliment or an attempted kind gesture with hostility is pretty lousy in my opinion.

Different broods show up at different locations depending on the year. I think they came out about four years ago back in my home town in eastern Ohio. I was back there briefly in the height of the swarm and it was amazing how loud and aggressive they were. Not "dangerous" or "damaging" aggressive, just "all over the place" aggressive. Several would fly by and land ON me as I walked across the back yard. And they were loud as all get-out... sounded almost like non-stop phaser blasts from Star Trek TOS!

That same year, we had none at all here in northern Ohio on the Lake - just 130 miles or so away.

I remember them coming out back home when I was a kid and I was always afraid of the exoskeletons they leave behind on tree trunks when they mature.

I just ordered one that should be delivered sometime this week. It is my first, so I have no actual experience with them yet to report to you.

I DO have a FitBit fitness tracker, but it has been spotty on reliability and very inconsistent in accurately counting steps in recent months. When I saw that Apple released the SE watch series that sounded like a bargain price for the features it provides (as compared to the most recent series 6 watch) I decided to save up my Amazon credits and finally bought it for $0 out of pocket when I had enough credits.

I was upset to hear this. Mostly because in a friendly bragging rights wager with family (no money exchanged) we each had to pick one horse to win and this was my random pick knowing nothing about horse racing or the horses themselves other than the name/number/odds of winning about an hour before the race.

Last weekend I was the winner for picking Medina Spirit.

When i said the Trump wagon would worry about when Biden farted,took a poop or pee etc i have to pat myself on the back for calling that.BUT.......................I have to be fair now.......

I never thought in a zillion yrs some would worry about when he picked a weed or a flower.

I don't give a crap [pun intended] about when Biden farts or when he picks flowers. What I do give a crap about is when he babbles incoherently and when his facial expressions look eerily like a lost child who cannot find his mommy. Whether his supporters care to admit it or not, we have all seen that look on his face several times over the past 100+ days while giving speeches or interviews.

I was still pretty young when Reagan was first in office, but I remember all of the running jokes about his senility and how he was portrayed in the media and on late night talk shows/SNL. Also there was that classic line from his debate with Walter Mondale about "youth and inexperience" as a way to deflect all of the above.

But most of the 'feeble/elderly' characterizations of Reagan (much like the media's hyper-inflated treatment of any perceived flaws of Bush, W Bush, Trump) were so far overblown when you compare Reagan's sharpness to that of Biden.

Evidently, people in my area are using BitCoin because when I was at my favorite grocery store on Monday, after I checked out, I noticed a BitCoin machine against the wall next to the lottery machine. I couldn't stop to see what it was all about but I will the next time I go to that store.

Most likely it was a bitcoin ATM. Some people use those to buy BTC with cash on hand - although from what I have heard, they usually charge pretty significant fees for the "convenience". I stick to online exchanges to buy my BTC. They still ding you with fees, but I don't believe they are nearly as high. Also - I am always leery about ATMs in grocery and convenience stores. You never know who is hiding around the corner watching you with a wad of cash in your hand!
