After reading @Castles post in the singles group about "hovering", I thought I'd give my opinion ...
AstralSmoke comments on Jul 5, 2018:
I 'hover' often, if nothing more to refresh my memory about that person or to find out where they live I like hovering as well as visiting, but I don't see a need to be notified that someone has 'hovered' me.

She's built like a brick outhouse. What's your interpretation?
AstralSmoke comments on Jul 4, 2018:
@btroje, @Sheanutt I grew up with the saying, “she’s built like a brick outhouse”. It always meant she had a sexy body, but it always left a question in my head. After thinking about it (too much) I believe the outhouse represents people. We all go to the toilet. Built or stacked like a brick outhouse just means one’s fit. And after further deliberation in my head (more wasted time) I came to another conclusion, all brought on by a conversation I had with my mom on the way home from her exercise class. As @firecracker commented, outhouses are normally built from wood and not necessarily built well. So a brick outhouse might be well built but it’s just for show. There’s no good reason for it. The first photo is a house just up the street from us. My dad used to call it the outhouse. Perhaps you’ll understand why. The 2nd photo is a new house they’re building about 3 blocks away. Mom said something about it looking like a fancy outhouse. I added the bricks and away we went. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I was wondering if you could go back to the Art Department and retrieve some carving tools for me? I can tell you where some whiskey is stashed as well. I have my reliable pea shooter and I'll gather my closest neighbors. Will be there shortly. I'd really appreciate it if you'd get my tools. You'd do it if it were paint!

AstralSmoke comments on Jul 2, 2018:
Funny. You must have a good character. If you need to get a load of mulch again, put a section of chain-link fence flat in the bed, place your tarp over that (if you want to), and the mulch on top of that. Unload the same as before, but tie the rope to the chain-link fence. A redneck taught me that.
Roma's murder by far right reveals deep wounds in Ukraine
AstralSmoke comments on Jul 2, 2018:

My thoughts about what exactly? I'm no English professor and English has never been my favorite subject and although I taught English to Germans for a few years, I don't consider myself a linguist. My kids can't read cursive very easily. They don't write anymore, they type. They are learning sentence structure and stuff (sort of, they're ten). I don't think I'm qualified to answer.

I agree, it used to be a family responsibility, but no longer. People take jobs all over the country and it's not so easy to relocate and sacrifice your job in order to take care of your mom or dad. It must be really scary for some with no backup system in place. I view this as part of the bigger problem with health care here in the US. Other countries take much better care of their citizens than our 3rd world country does.
