What Do You Think You Know?

End of the post–Cold War holiday

I remember Duck and cover drills in school. I also remember as I went under my small desk looking at the windows along the wall and imagining the glass breaking and flying into the room.

Of course, there was no way to know how close or from what direction an atomic blast might come from, but it made perfect sense to do what you can do to survive. Over the years since such logic has been ridiculed.

I'm delighted to see that 2018 has spawned a wonderful new euphemism for ********.

Apparently Toby Young feels he has had two lives so far, that he "has cast his previous comments as remnants of a former life, for which he should not be judged too harshly now" and that "the... [Read More]

Ray Thomas RIP

For anyone to whom psychedelic symphonic prog-rock is an essential part of their lives, the songs and flute of Ray Thomas have been instantly recognizable and definitive. Well done that chap, he brought a smile to a lot of faces.

Will Oprah Run?

Jan 08, 2018 - 8:49 AM - by Ahso!
There's speculation swirling around the media today about this because of a speech she gave at an awards show last night. I watched the speech on youtube and it is quite good and well delivered.

Would you vote for Ophrah Winfrey for president? In spite of her complete lack of understanding regarding atheism, I would strongly consider it.

She's smart enough, she has name recognition, she might stand a chance resisting neocons and liberal hawks and she doesn't need... [Read More]

There has to be a thread. Plus popcorn.

I reckon we'll know everything we need to know from the book, online, soon.

So far on the releases given us I find the book convincing and Trump hilarious. I'm sure there are some inaccuracies - Wolff got his information from people who often hadn't a clue, after all and there's sure to be some details... [Read More]

Mickiel came up with this one,

I found it refreshingly familiar. In the sense of remembering child hood trees I loved.
I remember a tree we had in our garden when we were younger was the biggest tree in the world...and we climbed it all the time and played war around it with broomstick handle guns and picked the nests out of it be then told off by Mum about bringing disgusting stuff in the house like confusing spitfires with catapillars.

Come in and put your feet up.
If its cold we have an array of Ports and scotches. The large leather club chairs at the open fire place with the pipe holders.

If its hot? We have the lovely beer garden with outdoor lounges and hammocks shaded with the best oriental styled awnings. Beer on tap at the 'shady bar'....pull up a stool, and have a bit of a think.....or a contemplation if you will?

Todays posts....10 out of 13 threads are from the extremists of the forum.
Everytime i try to encourage a person to come to this forumthey take one look at the threadsfrom those self absorbed beings and think the board is not for them.

In another thread it was mentioned "are we being highjacked"......well forum garden seems to be and to its detriment.....

What's Your New Year's Resoution?

Jan 02, 2018 - 3:22 PM - by Saint_
Saint_'s Avatar
Soooo....I never was very good at New Year's resolutions as a young man. I'd pick ridiculously large goals, or even impossible ones.

Now that I'm older, I finally figured it out. Just pick ONE small attainable goal that you'd like to do. You'll break it a couple of times, but if you keep trying, it will eventually become habit and part of your new personality.

For example: Even though I don't go to church anymore and have a very large view of Creation,... [Read More]

Are we being hijacked?

Jan 01, 2018 - 11:50 AM - by LarsMac
LarsMac's Avatar
Several popular themes in modern entertainment fiction cover the idea people being controlled by outside forces.
The Zombies notion has been very popular.
The Invaders from Mars, or a recent mini series, "Brain Dead" covered the notion that alien elements had taken over the minds of people.

This article takes a slightly different view.
It is a long read, and gets a bit deep, but Stick with it, and it may offer something to think about.

How Was It For You?

So, overall, how was 2017, compared to 2016.

2016, for me was a nightmare, stuck in a job in Domicilliary Care, working for a company that was on the fiddle & on the rocks, struggling to make ends meet.

Then in August, 2016, I got me a job working for Utilita, where I really landed on my feet. After a few weeks I had been promoted to "First Contact" (specialising in Legacy & Quantum Meters). Within a couple of months I had managed to save enough for... [Read More]

I thought if I had to see it as an email, the least I could do is use it as a thread title.

There was allegedly an accompanying photo but fortunately I've got those suppressed.
