    Tis a Fearful Thing

    ‘Tis a fearful thing to love what death can touch. A fearful thing to love, to hope, to dream, to be – to be, And oh, to lose. A thing for fools, this, And a holy thing, a holy thing to love. For your life has lived in me, your laugh once lifted me, your word was gift to me. To remember this brings painful joy. ‘Tis a human thing, love, a holy thing, to love what death has touched. Yehuda HaLevi

    The Summer Day

    Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean-- the one who has flung herself out of the grass, the one who is eating sugar out of my hand, who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-- who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes. Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face. Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away. I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do With your one wild and precious life? by Mary Oliver

    The Trump Shutdown

    No mention of anyone’s child should exit your disgusting pie hole here. The @Moderator may be ok with you talking about our children because this is PPP but I’m not.

    The Trump Shutdown

    People posting on message boards about people arguing on Twitter. Make PPP great again.
  5. Weak straw man divisive generalizations. Anyone can make themselves better with posts like this. Move in closer.

    Make this board better.
  7. Not true. But it will look more like America race and sex wise than the usual R white guys.

    Anyone buy a dog recently?

    Saw that after I posted. I left my post up for others. Your golden will be great.

    Just got our third golden. This one from Harbor View Goldens in Erie, which is a long (7 hour drive) from me. The best bred for health will be in excess of 2K. Harbor View has a stellar rep for healthy dogs. Can chat in email if you want info.

    The Trump Shutdown

    Yeah it’s great seeing regular folk suffering while the pols can’t show enough leadership to keep the government operating.
  11. Bernie may have won, as scary as that is.

    The Trump Shutdown

    No s—t. But let’s see if we can’t help our system too if possible. Maybe that’s a more pressing issue than the dumb wall. Except for Joe in Winslow. No amount of money is too little to spend on the wall for him.

    The Trump Shutdown

    At 1/2 of 1% of Trump’s budget, it is really taking off. If private citizens want to fund it electively, have at it.

    The above and another comment about someone being friends with a pedophile...my guess is he had enough.

    I think Peace is gone. His name is now Adios Folks. I saw him growing disgusted here last week and reached out but I don’t think he could stomach it any more. I sympathize.
