I'm a big fan of "Peanuts", "Pearls Before Swine", and "Calvin and Hobbes". I love Snoopy's positive outlook on life and Hobbes' affinity for smooching and babes. :-)

    You are most welcome for the encouragement. We all need support and encouragement once in a while.

    I’m sorry to hear of your cold. I hate colds and flu. It’s been a while since I’ve had a full-blown cold. I had the flu at the end of September 2016. I was miserable but it was mild compared to some flus I’ve had before that. I hope your cold is beginning to let up some.

    I absolutely LOVE the poem you shared. I will be passing it on to my sister and a cousin, who are both really into our family history. I am sure they will love it too. Yep… So many who have gone before us are forgotten now, yet they still live on through us.

    We have our Fall Break this weekend - was off today and will be off on Monday. So I am getting a good dose of sleeping in. “Whoo hoo!” is right! :-)

    We got that heavy rain this week that I talked about. My grass is growing again. I’ll probably cut it in the morning. It cooled down a bit too but it’s supposed to warm back up this weekend.

    Well, I hope your weekend begins with you feeling better and ends wonderfully. God bless you too!

    I sure wish the picture was larger. It’s really hard to see the details… ;-)

    Columbus deserves to be recognized for his discoveries. No man is perfect and if you had lived in his day and time, you might have done at least some of the same things he did, good and bad. He at least had the courage to sail westward in an uncharted ocean, hoping to find a shorter route to the Orient. His discovery of the New World was accidental but it opened up an exchange of cultures and lands.

    Any of you calling for the end of Columbus Day based ONLY on what you consider unforgivable, if you live in the Americas, what are you still doing here? Because, after all, if you are not fully Native American, you are carrying on his legacy simply by living here.

    I do not intend to be harsh but I am tired of the one-sided barrage of insults heaped on this man. The New World was no “paradise” before Columbus and it’s a bit “holier-than-thou” to be condemning a man you did not personally know. For the record, I am all for a separate Indigenous People Day. But keep Columbus Day. It exists to celebrate the good that his discoveries led to, including the United States of America.

    Syphilis came from from the New World and became an epidemic in Europe. It eventually spread to Russia and Africa. Syphilis was one disease that Native Americans gave to Europeans, not the other way around.

    Plus, slavery existed among the natives long before Columbus ever sailed.

    I’m not a fan of Angry Birds either. About two years ago I had the flu so I was bored, looking for something to do. So I tried Angry Birds. It was fun for a while. I played it for a few hours over two or three afternoons, but then I tired of it. Haven’t looked at it since.

    I wouldn’t listen to that guy. You have every right to join Ancestry just for the DNA results and connections. My sister does our family tree and is a member of Ancestry, but I doubt that she cares that anyone else on there for the same reason she is. She has gotten to meet a lot of nice people on there but I’m sure - like every social media site - she has run into a few rude people who feel like they have an obligation to run the show. I certainly understand your reaction.

    This has been a pretty good week, although a busy one. I’m enjoying my Saturday. I got to sleep in late this morning but after I got up, I mowed the lawn and did some other yard work. It’s supposed to rain this evening, and then more over the next few days. We need it. I haven’t mowed in over two weeks because it has been so dry. I watered my lawn a couple of times to keep the grass growing but there are still some dry spots in my lawn. Looking forward to a more typical Autumn rain pattern.

    I am glad to hear that last weekend went much better for you! And Fridays off now! Sounds great! Hope that makes all your weekends even better!

    Have a great one!!!

    You just had to, didn’t you? Any opportunity to comment negatively on religion, even when the comic is not about religion. Your comment is hooey.

    A man’s and woman’s responsibility is to not participate in activities that would bring another life into existence, if they are not ready for the responsibility of creating that life. We don’t only have rights; we also have responsibilities. We already have made a “choice” when we choose to participate or not participate in activities that lead to pregnancy. Abortion robs people of natural life, just as this Las Vegas incident did.

    I’ve got an idea: Just ban people. Then you won’t have a gun problem.

    You will never address the real problem by banning things. There will always be people intent on hurting others, whether we’re talking about these big massacres that get days of coverage on the news or the numerous individual daily attacks and murders that occur by gun, knife, car, rope, etc., etc., etc. that get a brief mention on the evening news. The problem is the heart of man. If you ever doubted the existence of “evil,” incidents like these prove the evil in the heart of mankind. Conversely, the first responders and attendees that helped, in spite of the danger, show the good that can overcome that evil. Nurture the good and resist the evil and you will be less likely to do something like this.

    And do not bring politics into this. It’s unnecessary and insensitive. Lots of people of in these events come from all persuasions, yet they were among the casualties and the injured. There’s also enough hypocrisy to go around: those of you claiming it’s hypocritical for republicans to be “pro-life” yet against gun control because of events like this, the reverse is also true for progressives. The comparison is almost useless. No one I know who is against gun control advocates injuring or killing other human beings. Again, the evil - the hate - in the human heart is the problem and until we address that, the hate will continue.
