Hello, and happy Wednesday! What, aside from grammatical errors, is one of your biggest pet peeves?
Robecology comments on Oct 16, 2019:
I recall watching old folk talking as a child...and I noticed they just talked about their ills. It saddened me...to the point of resolve never to do that when I get older... So I concur with @Ugly, below....pet peeve #1...(besides grammar errors)...."People who jabber on about their maladies."
People should have guessed that

The more I hear and see about what's going on in Hong Kong, the more I'm in awe of your courage - for even mentioning the "revolution" let alone, photographing it. You are doing an historic thing. Please keep doing what you're doing (regarding covering the "demonstrations"). The Agnostic world thanks you.

The mind-system behind the Trump supporters are complex...and there's a lot of parallels between them and the "Religulous" of America....so kudos to you for speaking out....and here's a great video that I share with many "fence-sitters" - it's a cartoon...narrated by a famous guy...(I forget his name...but very articulate...and very polite)...yet full o stats on how/why the Trump people don't "get it". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW9R6jgE7SQ
A (female) friend called me sexist. Is it sexist to want to be treated equally?
Robecology comments on Oct 15, 2019:
Women have suffered - and still suffer today in many "3rd world nations"....a "second class status". As a man who calls himself a feminist, I can only apologize for the slow creep toward equality that women are going through. I've seen little change throughout my adult life. All I can suggest is to stay positive, took at the glass as "half-full" and keep pushing....but try to avoid the "struggle"....make it a "flow" towards equality for your sanity.....there's a growing number of men who support your POV.
What's the story line?

I've been in a monogamous relationship with my wife for 20 years.
Robecology comments on Oct 15, 2019:
It's a serious - and all too common - problem. Two routes; Either ask her to go to counseling with you...or.. Let go lightly. Wish her well... Be firm - not loud, not angry, just firm.... in your resolve to set out on your own. Don't use any bad language. Don't rage/act-out in front of the kids... ust tell her it's time for you both to part. No "down on your knees" no long "let's fix this" discussions. My first wife died young...which set the stage for me ending a relationship if it wasn't working. I"ve since divorced 3 times....and have nothing bad to say about any of my "ex's"...I take at least 50% of the "blame" for the ending. Ken Keyes Jr. has been a master to me....I've read many of his books. His strategy of "preferences vs addictions" and "hold on tightly-let go lightly" has worked many times for me. https://www.thriftbooks.com/a/ken-keyes-jr/385510/

Robecology comments on Oct 14, 2019:
Aging is catastrophic on sex drive. Men need Cialis or Viagra...women need hormones...to "maintain the sexual adventures" we enjoyed commonly - what seems like just a few years ago. You simply have to weigh the merits of keeping your active (intercourse) intimacy in tact - or switch to a non-intercourse "intimacy" that works for you and your partner. It's a tough call...and varies from day to day, person to person. The keys - the most important issues, IMO, is staying flexible, open, and healthy.

Any name-caller is...in the world of "debate" protocol... giving up. They're admitting defeat in the worst way possible...by expressing their anger at their loss with personal attacks. So my advice to you is... 1. Ignore the individual who does this. They're not worth your effort and attention. 2. If you see a possibility to help them...(you feel sorry for their cornered/confrontational remark...) ....share this with them. My motto is to always help the handicapped. They're just ill, not well, not equipped to debate with standard logic.

Robecology comments on Oct 12, 2019:
It depends on lots of things. Where you live...how old you are...what you're looking for...what stage in your life is your relationship need? As a senior who's been through decades of dating I see some wisdom and no harm in looking up the person to "get to know them" better. I wouldn't spend money on it...it seems some of these "arrest record" searches are a rip off...but the internet can be useful. The more honest and upfront he/she is to begin with, the more they are "ready" for a new relationship.

This is a LONG read.
Robecology comments on Oct 10, 2019:
POINT #1. On long reads like thIS....may I suggest that you make it more "readable" by breaking up the paragraphs? For example; Original; "The way to end America's forever wars is to bring back the draft. Around Memorial Day each year, I take my children to Arlington National Cemetery. I’ve got friends buried there, and I think the best way to tend to their memory is to tell my kids stories about them. Who knows, maybe when my kids are grown up, they’ll pass some of those stories down to their own kids. I try not to take them on Memorial Day itself, as it is packed, so usually we wind up there after school the week before. Two years ago on our visit, a detachment from the Old Guard–the ceremonial troops who work at Arlington–was lined up in formation behind a riderless horse and caisson. My kids asked me what was going on, and I explained that the soldiers were preparing for a funeral. As I told this to my daughter, I caught myself staring across the Potomac, toward downtown Washington. Observing the indifferent afternoon hustle, a sadness came over me. But I was with my kids, so I shook it off. We visited a few more graves, I told a few more stories. Then we left. Broken up; "The way to end America's forever wars is to bring back the draft.

You'll get a higher percentage of readers getting all the way through. Point #2. Why just required military service? As world wars wind down, and the need to kill/conquer has less justification, why not require ANY type of national service? National Parks service, Peace Corps are growing in popularity. Maybe a year of "service" there might work.

The Haiti Clinic - 10 years of service to the poor! Michelle LaDue <michellenladue@gmail.com> 2:07 PM Dear friends, As many of you know I have been involved in volunteering with the Naturopathic Relief Clinic in Haiti for the past 8 years. I have visited Haiti on 5 medical missions to our clinic in Port-au-Prince offering healing services to the extremely poor communities with great successes. Since all of the political upheaval, violence, and rioting on the streets that has grown in the past few years I have not visited the clinic recently. I still support the clinic and the people in Haiti by continuing to help manage it from a far with fundraising, education, and growing/making herbal medicines to send to them throughout the year. Here is our yearly update and report on what we've been up to this past year! **Please consider donating if you can. Your support over the years has been so helpful! Thank you! ** Another year of clinic has passed and the Naturopathic Relief Clinic has continued its invaluable work, offering free naturopathic health care to about 7,000 people, bringing the total of patients to 77,000 in almost 10 years! This is an astonishing accomplishment, as the overall situation in Haiti continues to deteriorate. What were seismic shock waves have now turned into a veritable socio-political earthquake: daily gang shootings, political unrest, attempts to overthrow the government, gigantic embezzlement scandals, riots, mugging, hospital strikes etc. rock Port-au-Prince daily. Two months ago, Bernard (our clinic manager for many years) tried to make his way from downtown Port-au-Prince to the area where the clinic is when he was visiting Haiti for two weeks. He had to abandon the plan half way, because he got caught in a shooting, having to wait it out lying on the floor of his hastily parked by the roadside car. There was not a single day during his stay that was safe enough to drive. Meanwhile, Marie-Lucie, Camio and helper Robinson have been holding clinic when it is safe and there is no curfew. Clinic attendance has fluctuated greatly for three main reasons. Whenever the government hospitals are on strike, the clinic is swamped with people seeking help. When it is too dangerous, people cannot reach the clinic or try to stay inside, or there may be a warning asking everyone to stay indoors. At those times, Marie-Lucie and Camio have seen people from their homes for emergency treatments, which they also do on weekends. When ...

After a solo retreat in a cabin in the woods off the grid, I have decided to not date right now.

@ArtzyNerd; Congrats on falling in love...with yourself. It's a major milestone to getting off the "relationship" addiction. I'm not saying don't strive to be a "we"...but make it a preference....not a "must have" /addiction.

I just bought a second induction/convection oven!! I had bought one a couple of years ago because I had had an induction cooktop and loved it...it heats the pan (which must be made of iron, or steel) by tiny magnets..the surface doesn't get red hot....and it cooks much faster than the regular hot-surface ovens. They were priced over a thousand....until recently...I took a chance with a "fridgidaire" model... and I like it so much that when my son moved to his new home I bought him one. I found this model in Jetson's (Port St. Lucie Florida) https://www.frigidaire.com/Kitchen-Appliances/Ranges/Induction-Range/FFIF3054TS/
Petunia was hitting my deep stash yesterday, thinking if she cleared it out she would have more ...

I know of a group that specifically asks for out-of-date condoms. They know (like most of us) that the dating of products is a commercial benefit thing....if the package is sealed, they're still good. I've messaged her...if you do Facebook, go here: Moonflower Healing Arts, Michelle LaDue L.Ac./Doula Her groups name is "Hearts Helping Haiti". and ask her directly where to send them. The men of Haiti appreciate stuff like this; and the growth there is out of hand....
Let me try this again. I made a rookie mistake 🥺. For any other Bernie and Breaking Bad fans.
Robecology comments on Oct 6, 2019:
Bernie's hit a hurdle. He's been proven that he's aging....getting old. We're going to have to decide if his tenets...his precepts....his life devoted to a good, fair society .... ....needs him as the leader. ....Can he "anoint Liz" to carry the torch? Or does he have to prove that it was "just a hurdle" and it's "normal to stumble"...as long as you keep running?
Tiny house.
Robecology comments on Oct 6, 2019:
Pros (to living small/compact) - Energy efficient. You are making a small "Eco - footprint". Cons - reduced decorating opps...reduced cooking space. It's a tough call. I downsized from a 3-2 to a 2-2....I keep the BR/bath closed off except for company....so it's essentially a 1-1...with a choice of bathrooms....and lots of windows...

Protein. Something us seniors don't get enough of...Not sure why...but do consider buying that big container of protein powder or a few sets of those small but potent high protein drinks.
Hey members.
Robecology comments on Oct 5, 2019:
Far less here than on Facebook. FB responders don't follow debate rules, call names, and get rude; I rarely find that here.
Good morning .
Robecology comments on Oct 5, 2019:
Having taught health to adults in night school, I've become highly motivated to stay fit and eat right. Having said that; I've been struggling to get down in to the lean and fit weight bracket that I had most of my adult life. Working out is harder when you're retired and older. On top of that, our diet habits are started before we could walk and talk...so changing them is harder than quitting drugs. The actor Matthew McConaughey said something years ago which stuck with me; "Sweat every day. It's like pissing and shitting...our body needs it to get rid of wastes. That plus do an exercise that makes you huff and puff for 20-30 minutes a day"....and he's really aging nicely. So take his advice...if you want to spend more time than allotted in that body. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_McConaughey
Where is everyone?
Robecology comments on Oct 5, 2019:
I concur with most of the responders. The "chat" rooms are vague, and if there's no good "topic" brought up....then it's just silly, pretentious, and kind of "daft". My recommendation? Find cool/funny/interesting stuff on the web. Copy the link, or download the pic. If you copy You-tube links, the previews show up well. Make a comment...or ask a question about the post...you'll get plenty of feedback. I got to level 8 in "no time" just doing it that way. E.G. This is one of the best quotes from famous atheist Richard Dawkins; what're your thoughts?
So my bf, Frankie, has expressed to me his opinion that I shouldn't be posting pics here anymore.
Robecology comments on Oct 5, 2019:
BF wants you to stop posting "sexy classy" pics. He doesn't propose marriage...but you have his baby. Now his parents want to baptize the child...and you "give in"...pretty soon he'll not be happy with those of us who support your rights.... Hmmmm...someone's losing ground, here.
Just upgraded to XR because my 7+ starting flaking out.

I'm an apple regular for the simple reason it never crashes...ever. I've heard of everyone else with PC systems getting very upset at the pop-ups, and freezes....that just never happens with apples. The store bends over backwards to help you if/when you must go there....
Brainstorming help, please: A long-distance friend and I want to meet for a week this fall someplace...
Robecology comments on Oct 4, 2019:
Yellowstone is Amazing. The Grand Canyon is unique and special. Don't worry about advanced booking; if you decide to go there, do call them...if it's only 2 adults, 1 room...that's easy. And...if you want to come hang with me...no room cost (I have a spare BR) just cover your grub...I'm on the beach in Ft. Pierce.
Could gravity change with time? [livescience.com]
Robecology comments on Oct 4, 2019:
The question is...is earth gaining or losing mass? From what I've heard/read we're gaining tons per minute of space debris....space "dust" as it were....but...we are losing tons of very light gasses...though at an infinitely slow pace. Obviously the pace wasn't always this slow - and perhaps was positive (growing) not negative (shrinking) as it is today...but just as obviously - gravity on our earth is changing. Earth's mass is variable, subject to both gain and loss due to the accretion of in-falling material, including micrometeorites and cosmic dust and the loss of hydrogen and helium gas, respectively. The combined effect is a net loss of material, estimated at 5.5×107 kg (5.4×104 long tons) per year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_mass
Any opinions?....

The one on the right is my car maybe a slightly bit more fatalistic? :-)
Robecology comments on Oct 4, 2019:
We will end it soon enough...and we will take most land life and most higher forms of ocean life with us...but that will just re-set the evolutionary clock. We'll be back. Barring any unforseen meteors, the next intelligent beings set to dominate the Earth (misnamed...should be called "the Ocean") are either Octopi, Cetaceans, or - if land creatures dominate - they could very well be reptilian....
I have not eaten a good tasting strawberry since my childhood, they are still red, still a good size...
Robecology comments on Oct 4, 2019:
I'm afraid that science says it's more likely that you have a taste "memory" that, because it was new...was exaggerated. A child experiencing a strawberry for the first time is a "new experience" and tends to create "expectations". Having said that...there's also the possibility that in your past you experienced a more carefully grown fruit. But the science suggests otherwise. https://www.theroasterie.com/blog/palate-fatigue-yes-your-taste-buds-can-get-tired-too/
