I grew up attending a Disciples of Christ (fairly liberal) church, but always considered religion as mere lessons/mythology. I was quickly driven away from "real church" by the anti lgbtqa bigotry and misogyny that I encountered upon attending college.

I am an independent nature lover with a wicked, irreverent sense of humor, and am an unapologetic cat person, who is also drawn to less "popular" things like snakes, frogs, insects etc. I have retired so that I can spend more time enjoying what life has to offer. (“All work and no makes Jack a dull boy”, no?).

Being Content With What You Have
Zster comments on Jan 6, 2019:
I am! I worked to live, not the other way around. That (not working a huge portion of your life span) is really only possible if there exists some goal of having ENOUGH... to be content. I have reached that point. I am now out of the corporate rat race and able to now spend more time on things that I want to do, rather than have to. Without a limit of "enough", I might have worked my entire life acquring more, more, and more. That not only costs me precious time that I can never get back, but also means that was time was spent acquiring frivolously, AND also further lining the pockets of the (already) wealthy folks at the top. No thanks. I choose to live MY life, rather than endlessly running like a rat on a wheel for some contrived consumerist dream or fat cat.

Zster comments on Jan 6, 2019:
It depends on the person and other factors. In my case, meds that I must take to prevent migraine pain (which became present 24/7 in menopause), induce horrible hypnopompic/gogic hallucinations. These are greatly impacted by my ability to see any light when my eyes inadvertently open during sleep. I often long for a more completely dark room to see if the frequency of nightmarish hallucinations would be reduced. Some of what the scientific community knows about light and citcadian rythms is summarizeded in this linked review article. I have not waded through all of it, but wonder if we understand what the impact of low levels of light typically encountered during the night might be, if any. Some level of night vision is a good thing, safety wise. If we slept outside, seldom would any night be completely dark... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2717723/

Zster comments on Jan 5, 2019:
Been getting one annually for decades as they were free at work. I think my last bout of flu was in childhood. I like getting them around October (northern hemisphere) as I feel the antigen exposure can generate a nonspecific immune response as well as the intended specific one (agst flu), sort of like a jumpstart of the protective system right as we head into winter and its assorted maladies. I have gotten a tad sore or achey for a day or two, but nothing that a low dose of Tylenol wont lick, if I even need that (rare). For those afraid of mercury preservatives, go where the shot is drawn from a single dose via (currently mercury free in US) rather than multidose.
Are you a paranoid individual?

Zster comments on Jan 1, 2019:
Silly as it might sound: odor. While a litter box is no olfactory treat, the stench of dog skin can literally make me nauseous. Also, like others, I much prefer an independent, easier to maintain cat and enjoy the honor of a cat's gentle affection over the general excitability of dogs.

Zster comments on Jan 1, 2019:
Mine each get half a cup per day (1/4 fed twice, morning and evening) of a high quality (Science Diet or prescription diets as needed, preferring dry), well balanced food. My cats are all within their ideal ranges for weight, and are active, healthy. If you dislike measuring/restricting, you can try a reducing diet that contains higher fiber. I am a veterinarian, and so am pulling no punches, here. Adjust changes gradually to minimize rejection. Avoid your cat fasting as this can trigger life threatening liver trouble, a huge risk of excess body weight in cats. It is wonderful that you are recognizing excess weight and wanting to correct it. (:

Zster comments on Dec 30, 2018:
It's a tie between Monroe, LA and Millen,GA. Monroe gave me two of the worst hotel experiences of my life. Millen: horrid service at every establishment I've visited, not just rude, but threatening and dishonest.

Is this a dating site?
Zster comments on Dec 30, 2018:
It's a social place for nonbelievers, which concentrates the nonbelievers so that dating among them becomes more of a possibility than out in the real world, perhaps. Both date seekers and those not seeking dates are welcome here.

Zster comments on Dec 29, 2018:
IMO, it might not so much be wanting to be an atheist as much as NOT wanting to remain religious. For me, this meant escape from constant, mostly irrational judgement, moving toward more universal acceptance, more honest motivation for good deeds (than the self serving rewards of religion for doing so), etc... Of course, atheistic society is not perfect either. There is still judgement, "us/them" division, greed and whatnot.

I lost my dad (unexpectedly) eleven months ago. I am four states away. I will likely miss him for the rest of my life. My husband drew his last breath while holding my hand in our home (where I still live). That last night's events played repeatedly, like a horrible movie in my memory for several years after. It eventually stopped, thankfully. Now, I can cling to the sweeter times, which are like precious gifts to me. (((((hugs))))) to you and yours as your memories rise this time of year...

Does Technology Enhance or Diminish Childhood?
Zster comments on Dec 29, 2018:
Mine were never just "staring at screens". Mine were connecting and playing with other kids, being entertained, and educating themselves FAR beyond what we could do when I was a kid. We live rurally, so the connecting was welcome (no neighbor hood to gather in). My son took himself so far in the areas of eastern history and linguistics that, even at a junior level, he has not learned much (yet) that is new at college. My kids balanced screen time with the arts (band was physically gruelling) and going to the gym and so were/are not obese and out of shape. So... it depends on the kid. Also, television has gotten SO dumb, I am glad they don't spend the time that way that I did.
John Krasinski I prefer him in nerdy "office" mode, but he's quite handsome either way.
Zster comments on Dec 28, 2018:
He will always be The Office's Jim for me. He was not only handsome, but radiated an irresistable combination of kindness, wit/humor, intelligence, and vulnerability from within. A deadly mix, if you ask me.
In modern times, the young generation meet up and talk a lot, laugh hard but it’s empty in their ...
Zster comments on Dec 28, 2018:
When you speak such of this entire generation, you are speaking of my children. My experience has been that they might be MORE aware of their humanity than prior generations. Their intrerconnectedness globally has them much more aware of issues that cross boundaries, and each individual's impact on the planet. My kids, in particular, seem to better own their shortcomings and social awkwardness than generations prior (invluding mine). Yes, there are good and bad examples on any given day within each generation. Try looking for the positive now and then. You might be pleasantly surprised or even be given hope. The youth are weaker at some things and more gifted at others, including some emerging skill sets that might play out in big ways. Time will tell.

Dealing with grief
Zster comments on Dec 28, 2018:
It's helped me to find one or two people who could talk with me (not AT me) and listen to me, whether working through anger, lonliness, the endless "whys"... I avoided those who wanted to throw religion at me. Like you, I did not want to hurt or alienate them, but the empty platitudes felt almost insulting. There are self formed and moderated grief groups here. Hopefully you will be able to check them out and find someone with whom to connect that might help. I am so sorry that you are on the painful path of loss. I have been, and am on it again myself. It's awful.

Zster comments on Dec 28, 2018:
Welcome! I was never raised to believe the bible literally, but to seek lessons in its mythology. My parents convinced me that Jesus brought a message of love (cherry picking = ok if not literal?). When I went to college I first encountered biblical literalists who also used the bible to justify hate, greed, and bigotry. I saw religion as a tool of man ever since.

One set of grandparents had the console color TV and the Hi-Fi. We had dinner at their house every Sunday night so that we could watch "The World of Disney". In the 1970s Indianspolis market, we had 3 channels that actually tuned in (with rabbit ears and foil). UHF was pretty snowy, but worth suffering through to watch "Sesame Street" and later, "The Electric Co" and "Zoom".

Zster comments on Dec 27, 2018:
While chatting online might not be as satisfying as face-to-face interaction, it might pass some of the time when "the lonelies" are the worst. (You might want to ignore the trolls though. They are not interested in actually helping and likely have issues of their own thatvyou might wantvto steer clear of).

Zster comments on Dec 26, 2018:
Get checked out in case it IS something that early intervention could help. Also review all of your meds with a professional. You are correct that many medicines, alone or in certain combination, can have cognitive side effects. My father got very forgetful and confused every time he took statin drugs (to reduce plaque buildup in the arteries). I've had certain migraine meds interfere with my recall. I understand the worry. "What ifs" can get huge and scary. Often the reality and doing something about it can be both liberating and empowering.

Do you believe Chiropractors are effective?
Zster comments on Dec 25, 2018:
I have a relative whose chiropractic speciality is adjusting the plates in the skulls of newborn infants. I see an ortho/PT for my bulging discs. I've been pain free since May 2008. The PTs taught me tricks to self align as at every visit my spine was out of alignment.

While I might understand or forgive, I WONT ever get back together, with either.

I live with a continuous soundtrack! I typically have Pandora or iTunes on at home, or XM Sirius in the car. Anyone who asks me to turn the music off is not someone I will choose to hang with for much longer. I honestly thought we music addicts were a rare breed. So many turn the music off when they "grow up".

Zster comments on Dec 18, 2018:
@Graceylou was spot on... baby snakes live in a state of nearly constant fear of being eaten, and for good reason. They do eventually settle down, but it can take a while. I did not force mine to much handling when young. I just let them learn to associate me with good things, like lunch. I also provided fairly deep substrate, allowing them the option to build custom burrows. I am not sure if pythons do that, but my baby kings sure loved it. Congrats on your new baby! (:

Zster comments on Dec 16, 2018:
Winner: the Dry Tortugas, Florida. When I was a kid, my parents sailed us there from Clearwater (FL) for a vacation. That far from the mainland and its pollution, the colors of the water are unbelievable! The turquoise over snow white sand, the violet-indigo of fathoms deep water... The Okeefenokee swamp in Georgia comes a close second. We camped there in April '06 and boated on the swamp each day. The cypress over the flowing "river" portions were truly magestic, towering, forming parallel archways that could rival any man made cathedral. My photos are inaccessible and hard copy. I found similar on the net instead. Photos really do a poor job of capturing the true glavor of either location, though.

Zster comments on Dec 11, 2018:
My current take on ptofanity... 1. Words, in and of themselves have no power 2. Perceived word power is on behalf of the perceiver. The listener has to choose whether or no to be offended, regardless of the intent. I have better things to do with my time than being perpetually offended. 3. Many in society will judge. Such is a "perk" of freedom. Those who opt to use profane language have to be able to roll with those who will choose to be offended by it. Both sides have the right. 4. There can be times when a terrible word really meets the need. I prefer to not use the "golden biggie" (thanks Mr. Carlin) casually, reserving it for such circumstances. 5. Overuse of profanity, IMO, shows a lack of creativity. Can't you come up with a less tiresome word than that? 6. I actually APPRECIATE some profanity, especially in certain comedy dialogue. When censored, a lot of these movies/shows lack flavor. I actually like filth to have the original dirt in it! As to the original post. No, the prevalence of public profanity does not really bother me, except to say that "fuck" has somewhat lost its impact through overuse, which is unfortunate. I think society needs to choose its next "golden biggie".

Zster comments on Dec 7, 2018:
In front of my son at the end of "Infinity War" (while in the theater). By myself, likely one of many times in the car when a song came on XM Sirius, reminding me of all we lost when D died.
What’s are some Austin bands I need to check out?
Zster comments on Dec 7, 2018:
I recently saw The Peterson Brothers as the warm up for Gary Clark Jr last month. If you're at all a fan of funky blues, you might want to check them out in their hometown... http://www.petersonbrothersband.com/meet-the-peterson-brothers/indexm.html
Question 29. Share with your partner an embarrassing moment in your life. To hell with your ...

When I was in highschool, I attended the para/quadriplegic olympics in my home town. The paralyzed athletes brought fancy ramp and rail systems to compete at bowling. Without any unusual challenges whatsoever, I slipped a ball off of my fingers on the drawback, tossing the rental bowling ball well behind me, with a VERY audible crash. It was like a cartoon gaff and was quite embarrassing in the crowded bowling alley!
Who should buy the condoms? (Hetero couple)
Zster comments on Dec 3, 2018:
Whichever wants sex, does not want a child or STD, or both.
How are you supposed to date when everyone you go out with thinks that they are the only one you're ...
Zster comments on Dec 2, 2018:
I assume either can see other people unless the couple agrees to become exclusive. I see dating the way you describe, as a way to meet lots of people.
Is there anyone here who actually enjoys being older? There's a lot about it I'm enjoying. I feel...
Zster comments on Dec 2, 2018:
I DO!!! It's fun to have so much of my own "material" (first hand life experience) to draw on around the younger generations! Also, if I can drop the proportion of my days spent on earning a living, I've got oodles of much more fun stuff to spend time on.
Hello everybody i have just joined this group. I realised i was getting older when i looked in the ...

You know what? I think that Shrek was spot on... We are ALL (not just ogres) like onions. We add layers throughout life, all whille still retaining the younger versions of ourselves.
Hi, looking forward to have good discussion
Zster comments on Dec 2, 2018:
About what? (You cannot dangle a carrot of that size and NOT be prepared to start discussing!) (;
Am I the only one who feels like America is totally losing it's sense of humor? Yes, there is a lot ...
Zster comments on Dec 2, 2018:
It depends what we choose to expose ourselves to. Yes, there is definitely a significant seemingly humorless proportion of the people. Yet... with the internet allowing regular folks to post their views (bypassing the network boardrooms in doing so), I have never been more titillated by the creativity of much humor available to us today!
I am leaving for Switzerland in June. Does anyone have any must see or must do in Switzerland. I ...

I recommend taking the TGV (speed train) anywhere in France for a day. It runs through rural France which is very beautiful. If you enjoy art, give yourself the option of several days in the Louvre. There is way too much to see there in just one day.
You have to have seen "Dune" to understand this one
Zster comments on Dec 1, 2018:
Totally awesome!
Christmas is
Zster comments on Dec 1, 2018:
I'll jump at ANY excuse to gather with loved ones while enjoying great food! (: I cook all of the family favorites while having a blast with whoever wants to visit. We've been avoiding the commercial/religious chaos successfully for years.
A friend of mine i was talking to yesterday said to me, Sometimes its better for some peo to get ...
Zster comments on Dec 1, 2018:
I know some for whom that worked tremendously well. It makes sense to have some growth on one's own before pairing up. That said, I am glad that I did not wait too long as my husband's life got cut short. We did not delay or waste any precious time.
Friendship..
Zster comments on Nov 30, 2018:
I wish! I genuinely would like to have some male friends who would not press for more than friendship (sex, romance). My experience, so far, has been that many of my "friends" hang onto a hope for more when I am not headed there.
