  • Travelling by bus questions?

    My friend is planning to visit Ireland mid-late September. As I have rented cars, my friend plans to get around using buses. The questions:

    1) What the easiest way to get to Belfast from Dublin airport?

    2) Do the local buses that travel between towns/ cities and rural areas have compartments to stow luggage?

    3) What approx. time does it start getting dark mid-late September? I realise it changes a little every day?

    May have more questions as they arise! :-)

    Thank you.

  • Where can a visitor purchase an authentic duncher?

    We're going to enjoy a quick visit to Ireland next month (Apr. 14) and I wonder where we could purchase an authentic tweed cap like the ones worn in the movie "The Wind That Shakes the Barley".

    We'll be staying in Dublin two night, Cavan 1 night, Ballyshannon 1 night and a week in north Down.

    Thank you! :-)

  • Christians and fasting?

    During my re-reading of the "Holy Bible" I've encountered references to Christians and fasting. Yet I cannot recollect any Christians that I know who fast on a regular basis. I don't know any Christians who fast period.

    I'm wondering, did Christians fast during Lent (the time before Easter when each person is to give up something they value)? Something similar to Muslims fasting during Ramadan?

    Are there any Christians who fast on a regular basis?

  • Considering buying a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria...?

    We saw the car and took it for a test drive. Seems to be running well. Has about 145,000 km. Not former police car or taxi cab. Anyone here care to comment? Reviews tend to be generally favourable and I have to admit I liked the car after driving it. Wasn't keen on it before...

  • Does reading The Holy Bible contribute agnostics becoming atheists?

    If you were curious about The Scriptures and read them entirely because you were unsure about your belief in God, were you atheist after reading The Holy Bible?

    There IS a lot of nasty stuff in there and some funny stuff and some very good advice.

    If you thought there is a chance it is ALL symbolic, instead of literal, would that change your thinking?

  • What is the significance of the number 7 in beliefs?

    In Christianity, God created the world in seven "days" and there are many other references to the number 7 in the Old and New Testaments. Curiously, the number 7 is significant to some of the native North American population -- eg the "Seven Fires Prophecy" & "The Teachings of the Seven Grandfathers" (Wisdom, Love, Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Humility and Truth) and they also believe in "The Creator".

    "Seven fires prophecy is an Anishinaabe prophecy which marks phases, or epochs, in the life of the people on Turtle Island, a Native American name for the North American continent. The Seven fires of the prophecy represent key spiritual teachings for North America, and suggest that the different colors and traditions of the human beings can come together on a basis of respect. It predates the arrival of the Europeans, and contains information for the future lives of the Anishnaabe which are still in the process of being fulfilled."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mythologies…

    I'm just wondering -- why the number 7? Three I can understand and 4 I understand better, but why 7? I'm sure there are many other religions where the number 7 is also important....

  • Do all Christian churches have communion?

  • Questions eating at me...?

    In Chapter 11 of Leviticus (Old Testament) God gives directions to Moses and Aaron with regards to what can and can't be eaten (after many chapters about sacrifices).

    Apparently we are directed to eat the flesh of only cloven-hooved, cud-chewing critters, scaled and finny creatures from the sea, certain birds and locusts, crickets and grasshoppers. We aren't supposed to eat the flesh from any other animals. I'm wondering, when did the rules change? Why is it okay now to eat the flesh from a variety of other animals? Like pigs, horses, shrimp, lobsters crabs, ostriches etc. Many animals that we aren't supposed to eat, we now eat. Can't find where the rules change between the Old and New Testament.

  • Cloning horses--Do you think it's good or bad?

    Cloning horses--Do you think it's good or bad?

    I didn't know horses have been cloned since 2003... But the clone isn't the original, so while genetically identical a clone might not possess the same personality and have the same performance results as the original--close, but not the original...

    http://www.thestar.com/sports/london2012…

    And apparently the FEI has given the okay for clones to compete (except in thoroughbred racing--horses must be conceived as nature intended to be allowed to race)

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/20…

    Do you think cloning the bloodlines of champions is a good thing or detrimental to the horse industry?

  • Does the International Caravan Festival still exist?

    Just wondering if the multi-cultural festivities in Toronto still occur every year. I remember each "pavillion" was named after a city in a country. If it no longer happens, when was the last year? I used to go some years during the eighties and early nineties

  • Couple of questions about visiting Ottawa...?

    A friend and I will be visiting Ottawa later this month, weekend of Feb 24 -> 26.

    Question #1) Assuming the Rideau Skateway is still open, how long would it take to skate from one end to the other?

    #2) We'll be there for just one full day--what do you recommend we absolutely must see? Both have been through Parliament Buildings on previous buildings, so that isn't on our list of "must sees" (been there and done that!). There's plenty to do and see, just have difficulty narrowing down the choices! :-)

  • Do some post-menopausal women have higher body temperatures?

    Just curious... When I was married, my ex would complain that I was physically cold (and we're not talking about being "frigid" here! :-D ) when I snuggled up next to him in bed (so I learned to sleep at "a distance" so as to not annoy him). Now that I'm a couple of years post-menopause, a friend of the male persuasion commented that I'm "like a furnace".

    Have other women noticed a change in body temperature after menopause? Where before they felt cold, now they are comfortable, but others say they are warm? I'm past having "hot flashes" and the like. Actually, in many respects life is better after menopause!
