Deep cleaning for a week long guest, my Dad. I may get my fishing license so Dad, my Uncle, and I can go out on the Mississippi to their infamous, catfish hole. Guess we’ll see since it’s been raining a lot.

Back! from a Local Council event, where upon hearing the final result we rushed off for drinks, us Four.

My first drinks-foray out, since the last lockdown last November.. or maybe my second.

Time to continue drafting these meeting minutes.. :sleeping-sleep:

Thinking about a math trick a Youtube video taught me about making percentages easy. Can someone quiz me? Let’s see if it works for whole numbers.

I make for a good British Conservative, but I’m not sure if I would make for a good Republican.. I think that they do need to resolve the 'American' issue, but they don’t.. or don’t know how. Living under racial tensions ain’t no way to live.. well, I wouldn’t want to, personally.

We were proper locked-down here.. apart from the protests.. the revolutionists, that the whole of the U.K. has come to admire. When conspiracy theories go mainstream, ha!

it's pretty much the primary feature of the american right wing to be racist nowadays.

The racism is two-sided tho.. I’m not oblivious to that fact.. and no self-sought/conceived plan-of-revenge is sitting right with me.. the same as during the similar situation in South Africa.

Does an action, justify an unethical means? it doesn’t for me.. on any side. I hope that things ease up, in the coming days and weeks, for America.

two wrongs don't make a right.

the fundamental questions that the american right wing is afraid to answer about crt is simply, "should we teach kids about the genocide of native americans, and about african american slavery?"

they are bending over backward and 100s of fringe media outlets are in full on spaz-out mode about this. they're making the idea of teaching truthful history into a controversial issue. i don't think it should be.

A day of self-reflection.

ILP and Knowthyself are both helping me evolve.

Wow! When I first started reading ILP posts during 2009, my mind was overwhelmed by new ideas and the multiplicity of perspectives, many I would never gather on my own, let alone share.

Thank you.

So, in myself was a keyhole that I hadn't peered through. Dang, eye opening. Intent, I see you. Now I'm working to build the key.

From everything I have experienced here and there, intent, my intent is most important. Yes, quite often I am frustrated and angered by other minds. A general, overarching unhappiness forming many thoughts and ideas from others, sometimes from myself. I reflect that unhappiness too because it's easier to reflect it than fight it. Hell yes, I want to vent, to ridicule whatever it is that is trying to wield my unrecognized intent into my being a monster. Opposing energies do that. They skillfully bade us into unbecoming.

More and more lately, I am weighing what is being written with a new caring, having compassion for both minds, theirs and my own. Until recently, I didn't get that a good intention goes a long way within. Forget about the other person, their opposition. I am all I need. No other approval needed, only my own, the hardest to win.

Whatever another's intent may seem, my intent will be aimed at maintaining an inner calm, a clear headedness with only a positive outcome for me. No letting my ego respond. Additional things I now realize, there is more internal damnation than meets the eye in everyone. And my adding external strife to convince or "wake up' another, only immediately diminishes my inner health, wasting my energy.

Regulating my intent as a top priority, adds conscientiousness to my actions that I hadn't considered would bring forth such a change in perspective. So, yaay me and all the friggin' rewrites I'll have to make to post exactly what you'd expect...high mindedness and sophistication. :-k

No forum is ideal in my opinion, and from the non-ideal we learn, during a day of self-reflection.

Wanting to start a bunch of new threads but my energy is kaput.

-Sex Dimorphism

-Nothing Goes To Waste-my attempt to prove that in nature nothing goes to waste, nothing becomes nothing which would apply to consciousness, in effect proving the existence of an afterlife(the continuation of consciousness) after the physical body expires

-Disproof of Darwin-who I haven’t studied yet but if Darwin spoke of an evolutionary change in kind that might be interesting since there may not be any evolutionary proof for a change in kind.

-Chaos vs. Order-woman as chaos, man as order

-Childhood Dementia

[Edit:Tomorrow, once my houseguest leaves and my PC is once again ‘all mine,’ I’ll begin work on the list above and a few more waiting in my draft file.]

Wondering when I’m going to crash?

Sang happy birthday to my Mama at midnight (won our families’ competition to be the first to share birthday wishes), awoke at 4am, walked Cotton around our neighborhood, dance partied, played Heroes of Might & Magic, waited hours before any businesses opened, did errands at six places, and am home by 10 am.

An afternoon nap may be needed before I join family for my Mama’s birthday dinner out.

So far, today has been excellent! :D

When people want to fill their head with noise to drown out their demons, they fill everybody else’s head around them with noise too, and selfishly so. I have secured the area, and set booby-traps. :lol:

Preparing to listen to the man labeled, "World's most powerful man".

There are those who would have me believe the man is senile.

Thought I would take the opportunity to decide for myself.

I am under the impression he is speaking live from Cincinatti. :-k
