Off-Topic / Kohler: Original posters' thread titles are being changed w/in threads
« on: November 04, 2012, 01:37:26 pm »Message ID: 635403
Just a heads up to please notice that title's of some threads are being changed within the threads themselves.  I don't know if this is allowed or not, but it seems to me that whatever thread anyone else replies in, that no one but the original poster of that thread should be allowed to change their title - even within responses within the threads.  In certain cases, mainly religious threads, they are being changed to the opposite of what the original poster intended, to the twisted context of what someone is trying to use to their advantage. I wouldn't like my topic title changed, and really don't think others would either, which is only being done facetiously.  Thank you very much.

Off-Topic / ~ November Blessings and Thanks ~
« on: November 01, 2012, 03:52:43 pm »Message ID: 633401
November is special to many, as many enjoy gathering with family and friends for the Thanksgiving holidays.  I would like to share a "Thanksgiving" verse each day of November, along with someone and/or something I am thankful for.  I would love to invite anyone who is interested, to join in, too, either daily, or as you can!

~Psalm 7:17~

17 "I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high."

Day 1: I am thankful for my immediate family - my hubby, and my 3 children.  The Lord has blessed me with such a sweet and wonderful family.  :)

Off-Topic / Frustrating uses/spellings of homonyms
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:17:26 pm »Message ID: 575124
Homophones (literally "same sound") are usually defined as words that share the same pronunciation, regardless of how they are spelled.  If they are spelled the same then they are also homographs (and homonyms); ***if they are spelled differently then they are also heterographs (literally "different writing").

***Heterographic examples, where they are spelled differently yet have different meanings, are the ones that tend to confuse some when writing about something.  It's not just frustrating for those writing the words, especially if not sure about which word to use, but it's also frustrating for those reading material with the misused words.

Example: to (expressing motion or direction,)  too (in addition; also,) and two (number):

I'm going to the store later.
Our neighbor wants to come, too.  (***Sometimes someone writes using the spelling of the wrong definition which then changes the meaning of the sentence.): Ex.:  Our neighbor wants us too come, to.)
So there will be two of us.

, hear is another example:

We are now here standing in the long line.
I can hear so many people talking at once.  (***Using spelling of wrong definition:  I can here so many people talking at once.)

There are several situations or examples of this same thing.  Do you have some that frustrate you?

I was saddened to read of Andy Griffith passing away this morning.  He was 86.  So many of us enjoyed his "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Matlock" series.

I really enjoy reading the daily quotes in our cash emails.  I particularly liked this one today.  This should be a daily reminder of how we should strive to present ourselves, whether in public, in groups, in our family, in forums, etc.  Great advice!!  :)

Debate & Discuss / Mysterious Ghost Horse and Rider in Cairo footage?
« on: February 13, 2011, 11:31:30 am »Message ID: 313421
Several news cameras have shown this video today where it looks like there is a mysterious ghost horse and rider in it.  Some say it's a lens flare, others are saying that it's the fourth horse of the apocalypse, and others say they just don't know what it is.  What is your opinion?

Revelation 6:8 says, " And I (John) looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."  Revelation 6 is where the Lamb opens the first six seals.  The seventh seal is opened in the eighth chapter.

The Expositor's Bible Commentary says this about the color of the fourth horse: "'Pale' (chloros) denotes a yellowish green, the light green of a plant, or the paleness of a sick person in contrast to a healthy appearance."

Just a note to say hi and to see if you are doing okay.  I've missed chatting with you.  Hope all is well with you and that I will hear from you.  A lot of people have really been sick this winter - I hope you've been able to avoid it.  Take care. "See" ya soon!

« on: December 04, 2010, 03:04:07 pm »Message ID: 280250
This was sent to me and I just wanted to share it on here. It regards the question of Obama's birthplace and where he is trying to lead America; and the response of "We the People.." to him directly.                          

According to you tube, there have been 6 million hits in 4 days. It is definitely well-put!!!
