  • How did you spend your stimulus check [if you received one]?

    We are using our check to help pay for a new, efficient heating and cooling system. I realize this may be old to some people but some of us only recently received our check. What are you doing or did you do with your stimulus check money?

  • Is anyone else annoyed at the Mother's Day add that keeps popping up no matter where you put the mouse?

    I am out of here until they stop doing that. I will try back in a week. It is manipulation. Maybe Yahoo should have accepted the business deal and then they would not need to annoy us consumers with such nonsense.

  • Why did this one particular person show up in three of my dreams last night?

    I have said before that I believe you are everyone in your dreams so I am missing something. [real time]I saw this woman recently and said hello but got no hello back...just a sheepish look and then this person hurried off. She and I were once friendly but she got a position of authority over me, due to the nature of our work. Eventually, she... show more
    I have said before that I believe you are everyone in your dreams so I am missing something. [real time]I saw this woman recently and said hello but got no hello back...just a sheepish look and then this person hurried off. She and I were once friendly but she got a position of authority over me, due to the nature of our work. Eventually, she turned on me 180 degrees. There must be a message to me that she would appear to me three times in my dreams. [in the dream] I was just my old self with her and she looked relaxed and relieved over that....and she did not look that way the last time I saw her for real. We did share a short conversation in my dream but I do not remember that part. But this dream is not about her. My own dreams are about ME. What do you think I could be missing? I know there are some out there in answer land of all ages who are people with studied intuition. Generalizations are okay. I learn something from everyone who is genuine. Thanks.

  • Do you cringe at the number of people who give thumbs down to good responses?

    It happens to me and I see it happening to others, also. People who know something about a topic put their heart into giving a rational answer. Then they get a thumbs down. What if some people looking for good advice skip over the rational answers just because they got a thumbs down? Wouldn't that mean some people ignore the good advice and... show more

What if some people looking for good advice skip over the rational answers just because they got a thumbs down? Wouldn't that mean some people ignore the good advice and instead latch onto only popular advice? I cringe. Do you want to cringe, too?

  • Should people be allowed to post on this forum before they know how to phrase a question appropriately?

    I cringe each time I come across a two word phrase with a question mark after it. First you have to suppose what the person posting meant and then you have to answer and perhaps be wrong. My usual choice is to ignore an entry that is not a question.

  • What could we do INSTEAD... with all that money used for campaigns?

    What If there were a different way for parties to choose their candidates that did not involve kickback promises and donations, and instead the same amount of money were used for good. What could we do with all the money diverted from campaigning? What world problems or USA problems could we then solve with that much more money available?

  • Do you believe that a groundhog can predict six more weeks of Winter?

    Now let the word go out across the land, six more weeks of winter is at hand. That was the prediction of the one, the fun, the actual, the factual, the only, the no-baloney, the anointed, the appointed, the double-jointed (stuffed but still zippy) Groundhog known as Octoraro Orphie. **************************** This is the groundhog to which I... show more

  • Do you believe that you have reached a point of maturity where you can have a friend of any age?

    I found that after I was a certain age [or maybe it was a stage of maturity], that I could be friends with mature people in all age groups [not just similar age peers]. Has anyone else had that experience?
