Are you inflated or deflated with your friends?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 26, 2018:

Have you noticed a decline in writing skills?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 23, 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.

AstralSmoke comments on Jun 21, 2018:
Can't read the Post, but I'll comment anyway. With my highly trained background ... not, This would be my take: If someone is shooting people and I have a weapon, I'm going to neutralize the shooter as quickly as possible and that probably means killing her/him. This minister was trained to do this and he obviously did an outstanding job.
This is very interesting.

AstralSmoke comments on Jun 20, 2018:
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.

You ever pay the 10% church tithes?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 19, 2018:
I like the idea of tithing (not to a church though). I give at least 10% of what I grow to the neighborhood critters. I give more than 10% of my time to family, friends, or whomever might need my help. I'd love to be able (someday) to live on 1% of what I make and 'tithe' the rest to those that might need it. I think it's a good way to think.

How do you access/search for new posts to comment on? Do you sort by newest post/newest comments?...
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 17, 2018:
A couple of ways: Search by topic and comb through them until I find something that floats my boat. And, When I see a reply I think warrants a closer look into the person that wrote it I then look through their posts to find something interesting. The second way is my preferred way. Thus, 'follow' and that way the post come to me.
