This online venture is for friendship and community more than anything else, and it fascinates me that the PNW seems so lightly represented here! What, we have more options and freedoms to seek out interesting folks in person?

My Lutheran upbringing gave way long ago a world of information and the myriad of cultures that join us all in community. I have enjoyed Unitarian fellowships for helping me see what a broad scope of wisdom is available from so many sources.

My 2 kids are each married, healthy, happy, and raising families of their own. Experiencing life with grandies has brought a wealth of love and joy I could not have imagined.

tinkercreek comments on Jan 8, 2021:
Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon (coastal foothills south of Portland) has a large Polynesian population and cultural program, and I would be surprised if there was not a genetic study pursued there recently, with all the available testing data.

Exactly right, but I hate seeing this inbreed's photo appearing everywhere. I think he was nominated because he's the only fit one from the caves.

Somehow, I don't think this guy ever took an "ecneics" class. Or an English class, for that matter!

tinkercreek comments on Jan 3, 2021:
I am most happy with knowing my own mind, heart and history better than ever before. I live in a space that is green, quiet, peaceful and surrounds me with good people that I trust. Health, time and space is my own, along with dreams and future options, making this a very good time.
Just a great story.
tinkercreek comments on Jan 2, 2021:
Thanks, that was fun!
I've never been one for labels.
tinkercreek comments on Jan 2, 2021:
It is tricky, and labels can most surely be divisive. When a conversation cannot be rerouted, I like to stay with "your beliefs are different than mine, and I certainly respect them" or something similar. Confrontation is never productive.

tinkercreek comments on Dec 29, 2020:
Great mobility for your cart, and all I can think is that I would always be scraping my ankles or catching my toes on those wicked little extensions. Are they brakes?

Is Dry January a thing in USA?

Yah, I think you've been played.
Seems pretty solid. And no "wobble" on the floor. Tomorrow I'll install the retractable casters.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 28, 2020:
With all of those reinforcements, I would not doubt it!
A sudden blow?
tinkercreek comments on Dec 28, 2020:
Whoah, that's a bit over gusty!
At a job interview, I was asked the following question; How is work efficiency important to you ?
tinkercreek comments on Dec 27, 2020:
From years of interviewing and hiring, your application would be tagged to the "never consider" file of a large (albeit religious) organization.
A bit of a rant ahead.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 27, 2020:
You are not wrong on any level, and by your writing you are considerately aware of the feelings of religious friends and family around you. I became aware of the larger worlds of thought and truth in college, specifically through a "World Religions" class at that Lutheran university, which was not their intention. I have realized that being outside of my small, conservative home town community was a huge advantage, and even with that it was many years before I was truly comfortable in breaking from the church. Yes, you will encounter negative reactions from friends and family, but please remember that is about THEM, feeling protective of what they have been taught. Some may change over time, others not, and you can only live your life in YOUR truth, seeking this marvelous community of others who are open to the peaceful lifestyle based on rational thought. I admire you for locating this site and reaching out! We don't consistently discuss dogma, but many of us are happy to support you, and allow you to express your thoughts without judgment. Your clarity and maturity are certainly greater than your years, and stepping away from that bible belt will be a breath of fresh air for you. Cheers, and take good care!

Opinion sought Would dried cherries be better in an oatmeal cookie or a chocolate cookie?
tinkercreek comments on Dec 25, 2020:
Though I'm not a fan of chocolate (the horror!), I think the cherry/white choco/chocolate cookies would be more elegant, and great!
A friend sent these and thought I'd share for a holiday laugh. Glad I don't live in Texass.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 25, 2020:
Thanks for the laughs - I love the skid marks!

tinkercreek comments on Dec 25, 2020:
"Wonderful photos, thank you! I wonder if Mahonia is related to our "Bear's Breeches", acanthus mollis? Did a little research, and Mahonia augustopholie is our Oregon Grape, which grows in the wild as well as landscaping. Yours looks like the Mahonia fortunei, so nice and airy in the heavy winter landscape. My Bear's Breeches have really taken off the past year, shaded from afternoon sun, so I will cut back the nearer ferns to let them breath a bit easier.

The photo is oddly calming, looks safe. It reminds me of a French movie I saw some time ago, centered around a chocolate patisserie, looking out from the shop. Anyone else see that?

This is some of the petrified wood that I have discovered on my property.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 18, 2020:
Wow, those are great, I'd be so excited if I found them! When I was young we went along camping on my dad's hunting trips around the high desert areas of Oregon. We found petrified wood and huge chunks of obsidian, beautiful treasures.
If there is only one good Friday are the fifty-one other Fridays bad?

We've had mince pies around the west coast, just a matter of family tradition.
One small benefit of living alone.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 17, 2020:
I get it - even when we have happily adjusted to life alone, having epic events swirling around us is a challenge. I sometimes imagine what it would be like to have someone close, to discuss and try to make sense of recent happenings. SO, I'll appreciate another Zoom Chat!

I was raised feeling that my existence is a burden to others.
tinkercreek comments on Dec 15, 2020:
You are wise to look back to your childhood in order to have a more positive adulthood! Your profile mentioned a family LDS background, which is intense at the very least, especially after realizing other truths and information. It's great for you that your girlfriend is clear about her religious needs for future family, which are not likely to change. Close exposure to any religion can trigger all sorts of reactions in 'christian survivors'. As others have said, counseling will be key for your being able to move forward. Best would be to seek a counselor, therapist or psychologist with Family of Origin, Inner Child, family dynamics or other related training & experience. Trust me, the benefits are well worth the time and effort to do this work, and free you to choose and enjoy the happy life you deserve!
