Bio

69 year old retired guy. Happily married. Financially secure. Reasonable health. Active 'adventure' traveler. I enjoy the Caribbean, South America, New Zealand, Australia, and the National Parks of the USA. We enjoy gardening in the spring and summer here in Ohio. We raise a vegetable garden, lots of strawberries and asparagus. And a large Hummingbird/butterfly habitat. I'm a conservative guy politically, lifestyle wise, and believe in 'live and let live'. You're not going to change my opinions on stuff. And I'm not going to try to change yours. I'm here for interesting discussions on numerous topics....

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 9, 2018:
I try to sleep with the door closed since I'm a morning person and my wife is a night owl. But then, cats screaming about a closed door violates cat law. And the dog wanting a safe place to sleep (he's 70 pounds of German Shepherd). <sigh>

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 9, 2018:
"Black Guns" probably referred to "black rifles" which is slang for the military type rifle known as AR or AR15. These rifles are very similar to the old M16 and current issue military infantry weapon.

I'm on Medicare+ and my wife is on Anthem.. Our medical insurance costs almost doubled with the Affordable Care Act. Plus, I had to find two new specialists who were "in plan". The cost went up, the medical options went down, and I've not met a doctor who thinks this is a better way.

Anyone that has a vegetable garden, have you tried growing asparagus?
bigpawbullets comments on Jul 6, 2018:
I was just inspecting the garden and getting completely exhausted looking at all the work I need to do. This is after yet another skirmish with trumpet vines and honeysuckle on the perimeter. I snapped a few pics of our asparagus patch. We've let half go to seed and growth for the season. I'm still snapping stalks off part of the other half. I'll be making pesto with it tonight.

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 5, 2018:
That's interesting. I looked at your profile. Is this a big deal in your age group? At my really advanced years, and IF I was looking for a potential permanent partner... I'd be concerned about someone's health from that diet. A simple solution is to ask the fellows why they keep asking YOU about it. PS: I'm not looking for a date. If I was it wouldn't be with someone my daughter's age. ;-)

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 5, 2018:
Who will define responsible? How would you determine responsibility? The term is very subjective. Here in Ohio, we used to have to complete a training course provided by a state licensed instructor. But even that approach was only an attempt to insure competency in the use of a sidearm, and knowledge of the laws and regulations concerning it's use. Then, there is the age requirement. A standard sign or measure of maturity/responsibility. I believe the premise has always been "responsible until proven irresponsible by actions". Much like "innocent until proven guilty." How do we know someone is responsible enough to drive a car?

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I'm probably going to get a lot of verbal abuse for this.... but what the heck!!! The Nazis did ethnic cleansing. No argument. And it was a horror. But it's just one of countless examples of this very dark side of humanity. Every government I can think of has done it. It's unfortunately, how we as a species are wired. That's not a excuse for this. But it is reality.

Damn.... I cannot imagine having my wife die. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 5.5 years ago. The following year was the darkest time I've ever known. She's fine now. But sometimes at night, I think, what if she'd died? And I almost lose it. So, I think you're incredibly strong Mary. And my heart goes out to you.

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I respect your views sir. Especially with your mentioned background. My view is different. I always carry a concealed sidearm. It's legal. I've a license here in Ohio. The vast majority of my neighbors do too. While we live in a very low crime suburb, (almost zero incidents of anything), many of us travel through less safe areas. My next door neighbor is the chief of police here. His view on this topic is that the more responsible armed citizens, the better. So, while your views are based on your experiences in law enforcement, so are his. It's an individual's perception.

bigpawbullets comments on Jul 2, 2018:
I voted for Trump (Actually, I voted "not Hillary"). Regardless. I believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. If President Trump is impeached, so be it. But, then you've got President Pence. I don't think we will see a Civil War like the last one. Possibly pockets of drawn out violence. But nothing nation-wide. The majority of Americans (and I include myself in this group) are too soft for carrying on prolonged warfare. It's a VERY UNPLEASANT activity.
