Thanks for your friendship, Melinda. I haven't met many people that grew up in a non-religious home, so I'm always fascinated to hear their views on religion. You just commented earlier today that your kids have many atheist friends. Wow!! That is great to hear. They are our future. --Carl
RE: "gist" not "jist" in your Stupider discussion. Any time you discovered, after posting a discussion, that you'd made a spelling error or posted a bad link, you can go back and edit it. Look in the "options" button at the top right of that discussion for "edit discussion". Once you change the discussion itself, you can delete your comment about the error, using the x in the upper right corner of it.
In order to insert an image in a comment, click on the second icon along the top of the window, just after "link", that looks like a rectangle. The window that opens will allow you to browse to an image on your computer. Or you can click the tab "From a URL". To get the URL of an image you can right click on that image and choose "copy image location". Then paste that into the "From a URL" window. You can experiment in the Sandbox group. That's designed to practice and experiment, then you can delete your practice stuff.
I hit the 'reply' wall on that a link from Failblog in replies to 'you' LOL. I guess I could have replied to the main thread but then it wouldn't have made sense to anyone else reading it! Of course I often wonder if I still make any sense at all!
I used to have an all black cat -- looks almost just like the black kitty in your photo. In fact my late kitty made that same face -- licking his mouth. It reminded me of him when I saw the picture -- just adorable.
hi booklover - so sorry, i didn't get to you - i really liked what you wrote about yourself and, no matter where one is, it seems hard to find people to talk to. i wanted to tell you the problems i had with it and probably still do, i just don't care anymore. i'll get back to you about though - it's a bit personal and i have to be in the mood :]
