The People's Court was educational at first, but then the show became a circus after Wapner left; that's when I stopped watching it.

Time to stop reading the news until the Oscars novelty goes away. It's one of the few things I've thoroughly disliked while living here my entire life.

Planning a vacation. This year's vacation theme is National Parks and Monuments. Enjoy them while they still exist.

Has anyone ever been to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico?

If so, any advice on what to do, what to see, and where to stay (hotel), etc?

No comment. I'm way too biased when it comes to anything Carmack, always a bit star-struck when he's mentioned.

Bill Paxton died.


He played the best character in this movie.

He was one of the good celebrities.

Today, I hopped on my mower, mowed my acre and a half lawn, got all my vegetables planted as we have an early spring, played with my dog, and chatted with my neighbor as he had come down the road when I was out getting the mail. He lives just a hair over a mile down the road from me. Outside of him, I didn't see another living human being today. It was quiet outside of the normal noises of nature and the breeze.

That sounds nice. I've been tempted to buy a place here for summer vacations and retirement. But I've only visited, so it could have been 'vacation mode' eyes.

For sure. I actually really like the dude (I assume he's a dude). He's a deep well of optimism. And I'm glad his religion makes him happy. But I can't broke equanimity with science. They're justnot equivalent at all.

I wonder which of you fears death more and who will be happy or scared at his/her deathbed. After all, it's what likely defines our individual existence in the end -- life unto death.

Just found out yesterday that I am also going to be moving to the Southeastern Pennsyltucky area for basically the same reason that you are, Blue. We may have to convene for some smoked meats, chili and beers.

I thought Blue lives in New York?

He's moving. Question is: Will he be in red or blue territory?

Have you considered going vegetarian as a trial? I suggest giving it a go for about a month. You might be surprised at the positive results at the positive results in digestion, energy levels, etc. It's easy to substitute that meat texture with beans, mushrooms, and other veggies.

Personally, I've been vegetarian (no meat or dairy products) for about 6 months and have lost some weight, focus better, and find that my energy levels are consistently higher, probably because I'm not digesting meat.

Worth a try?

And yes, I can use the word "never" just like you will freely admit to never being uninjured after jumping off a 200' building onto concrete.

I'm so predictable?

You figured out right away I'd focus on your use of the word 'never'.

The scenario might be possible.

Yes yes, according to multiverse theory and quantum mechanics anything is possible. There's a chance you could jump off a 20 story building naked and land uninjured on the concrete. Since you've got a truly open mind you'll try that and get back to us with the results right? Or are you willing to say you'd never land uninjured?

In which universe?

I've was under the impression that these passages contradict or render meaningless any prophetic discussion and contradict anyone who claims to be the one. Thinking

bobbob, please don't feed the bible troll.

If I don't agree with what he's saying, I'll argue the point or simply not respond. If he insults people or condemns them for not believing that's another matter. To reject a person, who has a belief system and is willing to have an open-conversation, is in itself an act of being close-minded and non-critical, in my opinion.

Besides, one of the greatest skeptical works of all time was written in the Bible. I suggest reading it, as it provides a foundation to critical thinking, existentialism, etc.

I don't get offended by your religious opinions. You advocate your positions but you haven't insulted people over it. If someone negates you in absolute terms, the hypocrisy is humorous and apparent. A true skeptic and critical thinker will always keep an open mind.

I dunno, some of it seems quite relevant today. Anxious

Didn't get the West Village apartment. Apparently the building management company concealed from my realtor that there was another applicant, and then basically stonewalled her when she asked for more info about why the other applicant was selected over me. My realtor's take was that the building management already had a tenant lined up and just played us to get an extra application fee. In my realtor's words, "Welcome to the world of New York real estate."

She's going to present me with some new listings later this afternoon, and then we'll go from there. Oh well.
Bummer. How much was the application fee?

Don't feel too bad though, this kind of thing can happen even in far less competitive markets. When I was looking for the house I own (with the mortgage company) now I was looking in a specific neighborhood. I had only really started looking, hadn't even signed on with a realtor yet. Found a listing pretty much right where I wanted to be. Called the listing agent, made an appointment for two days later to see the place. Two hours before the appointment she called and said an offer had been accepted on the house. Then a few weeks later the house literally next door was listed, I went to see it on the first day of the listing. The next day I did the paper work to make an offer, only to find out a few hours later there was another offer. At my realtor's suggestion I upped my offer by $1,500. It was a tense six hours before my agent called and said they had accepted my offer. And all this is in a town of a little over 100k.

There's no such thing as 'realtor on your side' because he/she profits by a commission on the higher sale price. Wouldn't be surprised if 'something else, off record' was going on there.
