...a mindset who's extreme religion teaches we are evil; a mindset that thinks we are bad; a mindset that believes it is destined to conquer and rule the West. He is a Muslim extremist and people like him are threatening our way of life. But, we don't want to see that here in the West. He is here because of chain immigration. He, and his family, should be deported back through "chain deportation", and their houses in the US burned to the ground. That would send a message. The West better wake up soon while we still have an identity.
just underlines again for the need for strict immigration policy. bring it on. its a shame the rotten apple spoils the barrel.

I'm going to party in the New Year Then see what it brings(y)..............Hey Probably a Headache :confused:but I'll get over it then head out in the garden for some fresh air and start clearing the leaves:) Off the lawn and into the compost pile. Lol If I had a wish it would be for someone to beat me to it and rack them up Before I get to them...... That would be cool .....Ps I have a rake they can borrow , If they need one:D....................Just throw the rotten apples in with the Leaves & I'll fork it over later;)

I don't mind ANY religions if their followers are not so claustrophobic, intolerant, so stubborn to integrate and so ready to kill or be killed in the name of furthering their cause or revenge. .. People should never kill innocents bystanders in the thought of becoming martyrs or entering their heavens.. A lot of wars have been fought in the name of religions, race ...

I'd like to end this thread here as I don't want to create malaise - You're welcome to send me a conversation.

To hell with the world; I just want a more bio-diverse garden this year, that's all. :)
You couldn't be more blunt! Haha! But we take all in... Fanatic, extremist, didactic, superstitious .. I am not worried about upsetting the cart. When people first said the earth was round, a lot of people condemned it and the rest is history. To be able to challenge is a prerequisite for progress ..

I love a bio-diverse garden too..

If people don't nuke each other, I am looking forward to expand my garden a little bit, and make sure none of my plants die, wish the same for others.

Btw, we have different local calendar, New year comes months later. Still, We celebrate 1st Jan, as beginning New year.

I'm curious what that calendar is based on? Does the calendar note things like the Spring/Fall equinox and Summer/Winter solstice? https://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-seasons


EDIT: After giving it a little thought, I guess New Year's Day (specifically the day if falls on) is somewhat up to human decision, because it's not really dependent on celestial cycles. However, still curious of the name of the calendar your country uses.

Sorry, alp I don't take picture much. You will be surprised if I tell you that most of my picture are take with the help of my neighbor kid, he sometimes come over and spend time with us.

roadrunner, just google it, you can add the calendar from Google calender, "Holidays in India" . From it you can get as close idea of festival and events, but actual occasions occurs according to lunar days.

I already did yesterday. After posting, I got thinking and had to comeback to the computer and started looking into the history of calendars and it's kind of interesting.

Did you all know that the switch over from the Julian to Gregorian calendar caused a lot of strife in the Christian world, some thinking that this was the coming of the anti-Christ, or at least a ploy by the Vatican to silence the Protestant movement. And I eventually got around to reading other systems of time measurement.

Sometimes reading posts can put a "bug" in one's ear:D

And apparently the Persian calendar is the most accurate; I always heard it was the Mayan calendar, but it comes in third, behind the Revised Julian and Persian calendars.

I just wish to be a better person and better appreciate all the greatness of nature. It seems like almost each day I'm more taken with just how great natural things are. All the bee's now in the flowering Rosemary. How my dog suns herself, moving from a sunny spot to sunny spot. The variety and uniqueness of all the birds that come into the yard. The diagonal rock jutting out of the hill due to the forces of plate tectonics. And of course the little seed that will blossom into beautiful flowers. It's all spectacular and deserves more appreciation and respect.


A few years ago I did make a new years resolution to be a better bread maker and I worked hard at it and by the end of the year I was. I make a very nice Rosemary and Kalamata Olive bread :)

Upon a review of my post, I wish for spelling lessons.

Oppressive weather state to resend its title,
rain when I need rain,
a nice breeze on a hot day,
when it rains, it dose not flood,

Oh and it would be nice if Sam would learn to clean his paws before coming inside.

You could teach Sam to wipe clean its paws and reward it with its favorite food and soon it will get the gist, I hope. I saw otters begging for food like some human in the zoo trip! :D;)
