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?).

Ask your doc or pharmacist for a copy of the label.

Zster comments on Jan 28, 2019:
It's not as simplistic as source, but balance of ALL of the nutritional components required to thrive. If the essential amino acid proportions (part of protein that we ultimately need) can be provided by other than a meat diet, then that should meet the cat's protein needs (assuming it's eaten, digested, etc...). Meeting the protein needs meat free might miss other nutrients that are needed though, vitamins, minerals, specific fats etc... The balancing act can be very tricky - ask any vet or animal nutrition major. If I needed to avoid animal protein in my pet, I would work with a professional (vet or nearby university) to make sure any resulting diet is not deficient in anything. Certain deficiencies can kill.Cat food producers used to not know that cats require taurine. A lot of lives likely got cut short (cardiac effects etc) due to that mistake. As to blackballing the applicant to a FB group based on such a thing, seems like malarky to me, with what little I have heard about it.

Lolol! I did not imagine THIS as I read that! I LOVED his character in Aquaman, by the way. It was a lighter, more comedic role than I had seen him in before. His levity (seemed very natural) made him even MORE attractive, IMO.

How do you cope with the death of a loved one
Zster comments on Jan 24, 2019:
I allow myself to hurt, to feel sad, for as long as it takes. I also find much comfort in speaking with others who feel the loss. I do a lot of mental processing when I put my feelings and thoughts into words, be they spoken or written. Time will lessen the ripping sting, but never seems to do so quickly enough. I am sorry if you are currently grieving. There is no pain like it.

Zster comments on Jan 24, 2019:
Ok, my answers are all over the board as I was not real sure what your question was... I don't have issue with either response. When religious rituals make a nonbeliever umcomfortable, it makes good sense to step away. Likewise, even when one believes that such rituals have no power, joining in at such a time in order to draw comfort from sharing in the activity with loved ones harms no one and can be helpful for some. If you are trying to say that you WISH that you could draw honest comfort from such, I hear you. I wish the after life aspects of the fairy tale was true when faced with loss. No one should make you feel wrong if aspects of belief were tolerated or even comforting at such a time. No one keeps score of how "strong" your atheism is. Death is the toughest event I've ever had to face in this life journey. If anything can help with the pain, can get me through it, I'd see that as a good thing. I told myself relious things when my husband passed. I do not believe that way now, but don't punish myself. It got me through. My sincere condolences at the loss of your mother. 101 was a long life. I know that even at that, it could feel too short.

I am entertained by the smallest of things: a fragrance, a slight change in how a dish is put together, watching my fish, snakes, or birds at the feeder, the drive to the grocery, etc... Also, I am VERY positional. If anyone moves a household object even a foot from where it used to be, it's GONE! My kids and friends have used this tendency to prank me often.

Join the widowed group here at ag.com. You'll find LOTS of people to sound off to, whenever you need. You were correct, at least by my experience. We call thise grief crashes "waves". They are nearly constant immediately after the loss (less than 2 months certainly counts), but tend to space out more with time. It's been twelve years since I lost my husband to cancer. In my case, playing "Dark Side of the Moon" for my son ripped me pretty hard. I can say, though, that many memories now make me smile instead of cry.

Life is loaded with small things that make it wonderful!

SO many memories.

Zster comments on Jan 7, 2019:
"Wrong" is a pretty strong word. I would think anything longer term could be risky though. It depends on how flexible each of you can HONESTLY be with the other's opposed value priority. Most christians that I know would never admit to any priority other than "god first, family second" due to having that preached at them at least a gazillion times. Beneath that, it would be nice to understand where the priorities truly are. If those really are her true values, I would not pursue the relationship. There is too much potential hurt lurking down the line. There's bound to be someone more naturally suited to each of you, I would hope. It's a sticky dilemma for sure.

We reached one very sunny, first real warm spring day and went fishing on the electric motors only lake. There was a sizeable large mouth bass in EVERY spot that looked like it could hold one! If the first person cast and missed, the second person could go in behind and get it! I've never had such a day since. It was simply amazing and tremendously fun!

Zster comments on Jan 7, 2019:
Wow! Those are huge words! I've never said them or had a SO say them. I would think that even once means it's over. I don't think so much vitriol and damage can ever be undone or forgotten, regardless of desire to salvage the relationship. If such words are used more casually and/or often in a certain pairing (sounds hurtful at least and odd, but no two couples are the same), only those in the relationship can weigh the significance enough to decide.
Keurig or French Press? I've used a French Press about 5 years now and recently purchased a (very ...
Zster comments on Jan 7, 2019:
Sorry, but in my opinion, Keurig makes a lame cup of coffee. Only auto drip or instant are worse. I am not sure why. I use French press (and a hand crank burr grinder) when I have the time and can savor a cup at my leisure. Nothing (so far) has beat it. For those times when I do not have time for the press, I use an old Senseo machine. Same convenience as Keurig, but a TON better flavor ( if you like a French cup or prefer something like espresso) and the pods are made from filter material, and so are more eco friendly. If acquiring premade pods is challenging (I order from Amazon), self-filled EvoPods work and are multi-use.

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.
Things that make NO sense: I am sure you have all heard that your bedroom should be totally dark, ...

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/
That look! The one Sofie gives me when she wants something OTHER than what is in her food bowl. ?
