AstralSmoke replies on Aug 26, 2018:
@JonSevastra Again, I will point to the flag that I saw. It did not have any black on it. It did have the blue band in the middle. The entire flag was blue and white. After posting this and talking with you guys, I now believe it must be a group (or individual) who has taken the flag and changed it just enough. I wish I could have taken a photo of it, but unfortunately, I was driving. The reason it appears militant to me: High schools in this area and where I'm originally from had flags prominently displayed on pickups and at football games. A war cry of sorts.
Why is it that some people here are only capable of leaving derogatory comments on your posts ...

@Akfishlady Being cornered to testify by receiving immunity isn't jumping ship (in my book). And I agree. I at least hope it's imploding and I believe Mueller has known how big the can of worms is. I just hope they don't end it with impeachment. I believe the whole family and political cronies (that haven't as of yet been IDed) have been doing illegal things for way too long.

How to tip properly.???
MissKathleen comments on Aug 23, 2018:
Wait staff are not covered under minimum wage laws in most (if not all) states, so tipping is important. I would rather see laws change so that wait staff are paid a livable wage and we join the rest of the world without tipping.
AstralSmoke replies on Aug 24, 2018:
@KissedbySun They should be paid $15/hr bare minimum and still be allowed to take tips. Some would not benefit, but most would, I believe.

I'm having a party!

AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
@MissKathleen I'm pretty stubborn in some ways. I don't give up easily. I would like getting to know as many from this site personally as possible. So, I keep making plans.
Who is with me?

I'm in! Where to lay my head? ;-)
AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
@ProudMary That's cool/warm! I wasn't ragging on WV. I don't think any of us can claim innocence. It's just sad with all the mountaintop removal going on. Tennessee is probably a close second. :-(

memorylikeasieve comments on Aug 18, 2018:
I don't really have a frame of reference for some of it. No-one's going to objectify something that looks like me. They never have. Then again, even if I were being objectified, I probably wouldn't recognise it. I have been known to stare at ladies I find attractive, but I never have the ...

I'm not objectifying you, but I find you very attractive.

This is why I didn't post any photos here for the first six months. I feel like people see my body, and then they automatically, involuntarily stop looking (and therefore fail to "see" my personality, thoughts, etc.) Because what else is there? *I wish it were normal to love and celebrate *all*...
AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
I agree with your wishes. I have found thru personal experience that I might be drawn to a woman's physical beauty first and then later find that I don't even like the person's character. The same applies to this site. Your photo might make me look but it doesn't mean anything beyond that. I feel it's much more important to be honest, including photographs, than to mislead.
Wow I never knew this, how many have known this?

So of course I didn't learn this until after they did away with plastic bags for groceries in California. They haven't completely done away with plastic bags, it is just that they have gone to heavier duty, reusable bags. By state law they have to charge you $0.10 per bag. That initiative ...
AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
That's a great idea. Plastic bags (one use) should be outlawed.

GreatNani comments on Aug 18, 2018:
Not sure what to say about that. I was at the real thing. That is rather creative. Maybe they can get some more money out of it
AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
@GreatNani I've been to the UK several times and haven't managed to visit it yet. Perhaps next time.
How about a tiny houseboat?

Cute! Or something like this where you can live on the ocean indefinitely. "Solar, wind, and water power propel this capsule so it functions entirely off the grid. A hydrojet on the bottom of the UFO draws power from rooftop solar panels to transport the home, while wind and water turbines ...

Practically speaking, I believe that might work as a vacation place for one person in calm waters. They would have to be really huge to accommodate more people with room to grow enough food. It sounds like an idea that's still in its dream state.

AstralSmoke replies on Aug 19, 2018:
@Sheannutt Yeah, you got that right. Here, the sun is strong enough, but the trees get in the way. No wind to speak of. It rains a lot so good water source but would need to treat. I think here might work. Did you have composting toilets in your straw bale house?

Wow! I love treehouses. I think it's from watching swiss family robinson too many times as a kid. One of these days I'll get around to having one.

If you build one this size, you could have a really BIG party!

The green man in Berlin, Germany. East Germany's crosswalk light. At the fall of the Wall, every city in Germany got a set of these crosswalk lights to show the unity of Germany. Photo taken in 21.10.16.
