I'm a retired science and health teacher and tutor (taught 1967 to 2012), and a father of two successful, independent adults (one step-, one that I'm in touch with often). I'm a grandpa to one grand- and one grand .

I consider myself quite fit, and healthy! Full head of hair, and close to ideal weight. I get a workout in every day! Sweating is in my daily -book!

I do volunteer work a local botanical garden that's famous having the biggest/best Bonsai collection in America!.

Search Botanical garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

I've been there since 2016, focusing on the veggie garden.

See my pics of me working the veggies and helping with the Garden of Lights!

We've discovered were not the only sun-planet system. We discovered that we're not the only planet likely to harbor life. I'm sure that we'll soon discover that "our" universe isn't the only one... And that it didn't "start 17 billion years ago...

I need some general advice.
Robecology comments on Jul 30, 2020:
Update July 30th. I siged on to a Rental company - Coldwell Banker Paradise in Ft. Pierce....(PM me if you want contact details) and they sent a person to evaluate the rental rate. It received a 3 star (out of 1-5) rating...but I'm closing in on a 4 star. I already had the popcorn ceiling replaced with "knock-down".. .I installed ceiling fans in the 2 BR's and LR, and just bought an induction cooksurface range and side-by-side-water-ice-in-door refrigerator. To go to a 5 star I need granite counters in the kitchen and a furniture update...and I'm working on that. Sorry about the image rotations -this has been a problem at Agnostic since May.
Is there any truth to the "drink more water" advice?
Robecology comments on Jul 29, 2020:
There's such a thing as excessive water...but that's extremely rare. It often occurs in marathon runners who are hydrating excessively. That being said...it's better to err on the the side of excess than not enough. Our bodies are mostly water. 80-90%. It carries good stuff to cells, bad stuff out. Excessive keeps things moving. Not enough slows the process. I won't google the research....you can do that....but I've known folk who are suffering - from dialysis patients to folks who died because they didn't hydrate enough. So go with the excess. IMO.
What do I need?

Robecology comments on Jul 27, 2020:
In the United States, for example, women are more likely than men to say religion is “very important” in their lives (60% vs. 47%), according to a 2014 Pew Research Center survey. Why? Remember the vows of marriage is to "love, honor, and obey"....so there's that brain-washing going on. As Pew points out (in this link, below) ALL the prophets, ALL the god images are men. Dominant, outspoken, tough men. Marriage vows; even of those who do strictly non-religious ceremonies...still hint at the notion of "taking" a partner rather than sharing a lifetime together. The women of any - if not all - religions are painted as demure, passive, willing to be controlled and manipulated...and, for some, to be put on a pedestal and worshiped. So I'm guessing that - apparently - many women like this...they prefer it to being "independent" or pushing for equality. They like the inequality that the religious view takes....and - unfortunately - too many old fashioned/macho/religious men smile and accept this notion. https://www.pewforum.org/2016/03/22/the-gender-gap-in-religion-around-the-world/
What are your feelings about cologne.
Robecology comments on Jul 27, 2020:
There's a lot of hype attached to a fragrance. A pricey bottle, housing a few pennies worth of plant extract and alcohol, properly marketed... Was/is liquid gold. The trick is to find a fragrance that makes you smile. That reminds you of something, or a time in your life. My favorite fragrances are lately - Bay Rum. Liz Taylor's "Passion". 4711. Realm, and Grey Flannel. Earlier in my life? English Leather. Canoe. Opium, Pi (Givenchy), Polo.

Robecology comments on Jul 27, 2020:
I'm glad you differentiate between "trolling" and debating. I've said what you've said - often. Did you know that folk don't even comprehend where the term came from? It's not the mythical deformed creature who lives under bridges. It comes from the verb "to troll" or fish using bait that is easily taken...often by "suckers". A Troller will throw out "bait" (absurd comments that are easilly arguable) and wait for the "sucker" to bite. The key is - as you suggest - belittling. Debaters never do that. Trollers and those who are "caught" by trollers do. Name calling. Those who've experienced debate groups call it "ad hominen attacks. Here's a guide. I keep mine handy and refer to it often. Debate me? Anytime. Troll me? you're blocked.

Good afternoon everyone! What's your favourite mixed drink?
Robecology comments on Jul 25, 2020:
Bloody Mary; on the hot and spicy side. Any Vodka will do. Margarita, with a quality Tequila, fresh lemon, Triple sec and salt. Gin and Tonic with lime is good - if the gin is a quality gin.

Jesus was gay?
Robecology comments on Jul 25, 2020:
Although he had many men close to him, I honestly believe he not only was intimate with a woman, but bore children by her. The "Da Vinci Code" book by Brown suggested the woman Mary Magdalen bore children fathered by Jesus that carried on the blood line to the present day - and The "Da Vinci Code' provoked a popular interest in speculation concerning the Holy Grail legend and Mary Magdalene's role in the history of Christianity. Mary allegedly was the key person to help remove his body from the cross, and bury him in a tomb...but oppression of women blocked her testiment in the bible. In fact; there's no text written by any women in the bible. The book has, however, been extensively denounced by many Christian denominations as an attack on the Catholic Church, and consistently criticized for its historical and scientific inaccuracies. But the book is a great read...strongly suggested!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Da_Vinci_Code
Hi.
Robecology comments on Jul 24, 2020:
Don't feel so badly, or be so negative. Look at it this way...you 'committed" to making a relationship work...in public, in a ceremony. You tried really hard. And you wisely got out when things turned sour. I applaud your efforts - and I've been there, myself; 4 marriages...3 divorces. (The first one I became single due to her passing from Cancer at a very young age). So don't think you have much to learn...you are who you are...good and bad...pretty much set in your ways. You've kept your health and made it to "maturity" so good for you. You are wise. You made wise decisions at the time. Assume that much.

It's not the workout...it's the intake. We eat at least 3 times a day...exercise is just not as common, nor repetitive. The trick is hunger....and eating less. Let a little hunger in to your life every day. It's also a key to self control and self discipline...if you can tolerate a little hunger you'll lose the weight.

Article: "British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I’ve Read" [londondaily.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 21, 2020:
He summed it up nicely; "Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed."

Glad you are working out at home. I'm convinced the gym is just another social gathering place...if you're serious about fitness you work out at home, by yourself. The time you save, the cost for fuel, etc...doesn't add up to me anymore. Glad that I've figured out home fitness. Even your name implies a fitness enjoyed by loners...hiking. I like biking, swimming laps, home equipment - working out using them...or simply going hiking....seems much smarter...IMO.

Calling names is in itself low...and thus I started reading it...and it does make sense.... But calling Americans "idiots" is like calling a below normal IQ person an idiot. - -it will not make him/her smarter... -it will only make them dig in their heals and resist change even more. Offer solutions. Offer ways out of the mess. But don't offer "tags" and degradation. That just makes you look even worse.
Do you believe that things said in the heat of the moment are actually the feelings of that person?
Robecology comments on Jul 21, 2020:
This depends on a few things... 1. Are either debater on drugs, or tired? 2. Are either debater understanding of the rules of debates/discussions/arguments? If you stoop to name calling - then you're not only conceding defeat, but doing so poorly. If you want to "share feelings" focus on why you might think that the other person is doing things differently/has a different opinion. Empathize. It helps you debate better....get to solutions faster. Post edit. I just read that you believe "god hates you" so you 1. believe in myths 2. Believe an allegedly loving, benevolent god hates. So this advice won't help you.

This will be a serious population-control event before it's done. I can only share some memes; please share them with the Trumpian friends you have; they might eventually catch on...
This is incredibly mezmerizing and entertaining to watch, what creativity! [facebook.com]

Excellent analogy. Micheal Douglas played such an excellent person going from ordinary guy to extraordinarily weird very slowly. Great meme! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falling_Down

I've been saying that for years. I found a great cartoon narrated by an excellent narrator - Stephen Fry - explaining the "effect". Made in early 2017. Still true today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW9R6jgE7SQ

@TheMiddleWay. Carl Sagan wrote a great book...in fact his last...on this very topic. You might like it...called the "Demon Haunted World". You can go directly to page 210 wherein the "tools of the skeptic" are carefully laid out. Enjoy coming to the truth....thanks for joining us in debate, here. R
Questions Will someone please explain to me: 1 Why my number of fans goes up & down.
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
Members come, members go. Some join. Some drop out....or their relatives take them out - for various reasons...deceased...etc. I have no idea about the "number of fans" I have...why do you even care?
Sure could use a couple cups of that this evening
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
LOL! Like a COVID19 Martini - called the Quarantini?
Yeah, coming to a classroom near you.

BLM - No - All Lives Matter?
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
This is such a vague phrase. Certain lives matter more to every individual than others. and science has proven - repeatedly with many different populations - -the more crowded it gets the less that other lives matter. J.R. Malthus, the father of Demography (population prediction studies) said more than 200 years ago; "As the quantity of life (of any one species in any given location) increases, the quality of life for each individual decreases. The logic is simple - more and more fight for less and less of the share of resources. This has inevitable consequences. Wars, conflict, diseases, extinction. Whether it's fruit flies, or rats, or humans....the studies prove this - repeatedly. Here's a study done in the 1960's https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf Here's a follow-up to Calhoun's classic study, in '08 https://eprints.lse.ac.uk/22514/1/2308Ramadams.pdf The Pandemic will get worse. Global warming will get worse Conflicts with nations might not lead to nuclear assault...but might lead to economic dominance by other nations besides the US...which shouldn't be looked on as a bad thing. We will finally change this direction when we realize that it's our growth...our increase in population - that's causing all these problems. When we reach ZPG we will begin to see lives matter more.
According to a 2019 Pew Research survey, 68 percent of all atheists in America are men, with a ...
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
I'm guessing that the numbers are fairly equal...but women are less outspoken about their religious or non-religious preferences. They know how to hide/go-with-the-flow better than men.

What do you think of this carving?
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
I've seen this posted on FB....yet can't seem to trace it back. It's possible that it's photo-shopped?
I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone.
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
I'm sad about R.W. He wasn't thinking correctly when he said this...and when he took his life...he really wasn't thinking correctly. People don't "make you feel" anything....you decide what you feel or not. You, as an adult, are responsible for what "you feel"...not others. He was a genius...except for that one flaw that led him to suicide. The worst thing in life...IMO....is to lose control of your feelings of being alone, or being loved...so that you blame others who "make you feel". Ken Keyes jr.said it best...
Sometimes you just have to let Darwin take the wheel....

Shhh....maybe by Nov 3 we'll have a significant number of the severely Trump-handicapped hospitalized or deceased?
Why are you obese?
Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2020:
Obesity is a disease; but a better description for it is a sign of addiction. There's too many who not only find comfort in obesity, but call those who criticize it "fat shamers". As a friend of a woman who's close to being obese let me say how difficult it is to impress upon them the need to work on "fixing" this. I've sent her this. I'll share it with you on the chance we can share it with others and get this symptom of addiction addressed. Here's the website I got the map from; which quotes the CDC. You can get it from them directly but it's complicated. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/map_of_the_week/2013/04/obesity_in_america_cdc_releases_gif_of_epidemic_over_time.html
