She lives in a gated community that had Zebras, elks, deers, etc. brought in. It's pretty cool to see all those animals running around. The first time I visited, a huge elk crossed the road in front of me, stopped right in front of my car, stared at me and took one of the longest pees I have ever seen. I think he was letting me know he was marking his territory.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving! Good to see you again!

Thanks very much for the kind words. I liked chatting with you, as well.

Yeah, I might pop back in the proper forums when new U2 albums hit. But you're right, not PLEBA.

Hey 80s

A lot of people mix it up in here a bit. It is no big deal.

I hope I am one that has changed a bit, I hope living a few more years I have learned a little more.

Anyways, I have thought about you a couple of times, I am glad to hear you are doing well. All the best to you.

Hi Deep, good to talk to you again.

Though I sometimes joke that I know all the important stuff, I think that once we stop learning, we might as well stop existing.

80s 80s 80s-

Nothing has changed here, it appears that ppl have only become more entrenched.
I try and stay out.

See John 1:5.

Keep your sanity and stay out.

Hi 80's I hope life has been good to you. I am too busy in the real world to spend much time researching and debating. Life is good, and I am glad to see you poke your head in.

Peace

Ooh. Dread's here, too. Hey, Dread !

LOL, cool, '80s, I'll see you in the album forums when possible, then. You're welcome. It's nice to see some old names show up again around here.

Hello, hello. I remember you, most certainly. I'd say that not too much has changed here, although I think it's a lot more civil now than it was then.

As for me, though, I'm now a disillusioned centrist who seems to vacillate between centre-left (in idealism) and centre-right (in philosophy), so I find I don't have much to talk about anymore. Oh and I'm also Canadian now, so I tend to spell things funny too.

Take care, and all the best.

Thanks very much. It's good to see your head pop in on my head-popping thread.

I'm glad things are going well for you. You and I got along fine, and I'm sure we still would.

I remember that you and I used to mix it up a lot when I first joined, but then we got okay with each other. I was certainly hoping you'd pop in to see me.

You're a "mutt", eh? (see, I can talk Canadian, too!) I feel a little bit that way on some things as well...I'm anti-death penalty, anti-hunting (unless necessary), I think the oil industry and other necessity-oriented corporations should be regulated more, and I think that some kind of healthcare reform is badly needed.

You were wanting to move to Canada, even before I left?

God bless ya, man.

More or less, I'm one of those liberals, to paraphrase Irving Kristol, "mugged by reality," although (to go further with that quote) I wouldn't say I'm a neocon now. But I would say that my brand of "pragmatic idealism" isn't exactly found in our collective political environment, and I'm more interested in results than a litany of rote slogans, hot button hysteria and broken campaign promises.

I like it here, more or less, and I've enjoyed the outside perspective that's difficult to have while inside the U.S. I don't know where I'm going to be in the long term, but I like not having to think about that presently.

Take care.

80s! I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering "whatever happened to. . " So good to hear from you. I hope you haven't already left the building again. . .I want to get my greetings in too!

I appreciate your honesty about why you stopped posting. It takes real character to know yourself in that way.

I can honestly say I've missed your input though. I feel that way about many of the conservative posters that have left over the years. The funny thing is I'm not really as liberal as I probably sound.

Anyway good to see you around.
