Finally getting some rain in Texas. We've had very little measurable rain since September!
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 13, 2018:
That makes life more difficult. Here in Hamilton Co. TN, we are doing a little above average. Normally we have about 50"/year.

I remember going fishing down at the local creek with my brothers. It was a hot day as we sat on a foot bridge going over the creek. We sat and sat and sat. I finally caught a fish, about a 4" long bluegill. By older brother said it was too small and threw it back in. I didn't like fishing!

Why do men lash out when rejected?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 10, 2018:
I believe it's a sign that they are not confident in their own skin. When someone lashes out against another person it is normally due to low self-esteem. They easily blame other people for their own failures. What I don't understand is how someone can think it will work out even when two people don't share the same opinion of each other.
