Struggle = strength?
AstralSmoke comments on May 16, 2018:
I'm not sure, but if you have a difficult road and are still turning your wheels, I'd say your strong.

How do you handle unwanted robo phone calls?
AstralSmoke comments on May 16, 2018:
I thought you were going to give us an answer. None of the above work. When I get a 800# I pick up the phone, but don't say anything. It hangs up after about 10 sec. They are automated. I just can't stand listening to the phone ring.

Strawberry buckets forever.... ????
AstralSmoke comments on May 16, 2018:
I have a strawberry patch planned, but who knows when I'll get to it. The buckets look like a good idea. Do you leave them in buckets for next year? Thought you were supposed to pick blooms off the first year and harvest berries the second and continues years?

I grew up in east TN. Moved to Chattanooga when I was about 16. Stayed here for about 6 years, then went to grad school in IL and OH. Moved to Switzerland and then Germany for about 6 years. Moved back to Chattanooga when I was 46. I'm definitely a misfit living in a molding pot of soup.

I know the media keeps posting Trumps favorable rating as close to 40%, but that's 40% of the 30% who voted. His real approval rating is probably closer to 10%. We have to get people educated and fight against this very loud 10% (loud as in controlling).

AstralSmoke comments on May 14, 2018:
It has been impossible for me to determine what boundaries need to be in place until after spending time (years possibly) with a person. I must be looking at this wrong. Some deal breakers are easy to see; others just pop up out of nowhere. I think it's time to go to bed. I feel depressed.

To Bother Or Not To Bother: Finding Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type – HealthyWay
AstralSmoke comments on May 14, 2018:
I think the article takes a good look at both sides of the results from Briggs-Myers. The last time I took it I came up with INFP. I even bought a book about my 'type'. The reading was interesting, but it did come across to me as a horoscope read. Nothing solid, just a little 'breezy'.
FYI, straight men: Most men messaging women NEVER READ a woman's profile beforehand. We tell them ...
AstralSmoke comments on May 14, 2018:
I don't have any explanations that would hold water, so I won't make up anything. Except, I'm sure that some of my approaches have ended up with basically the same results you mentioned. I have not sent dick pics or even shirtless pics, but the results are sometimes 'unpredictable' at best. I'm sorry your experiences have been so negative.

AstralSmoke comments on May 13, 2018:
They're ok. Don't know what would suit me better. My first name was taken from my great-grandfather, mother's side; my middle name was my grandmother's maiden name, father's side. All of us kids were named from a family member on both sides. My parents said it was a way to keep the peace.

AstralSmoke comments on May 13, 2018:
I must admit I have several degrees. From all the schooling that I've had, I've come to the conclusion that most people in grad schools or perhaps even post-grads are book-smart but have no common sense and very few real-life experiences. I like to tell people that some of the dumbest people I met in grad school. So, in my experience, formal schooling has no reflection on what someone's potential is.
