rbturner: I needed to lose weight so I went on a diet. I was hungry all the time so I went on another diet. Now that I am eating both of them I feel pretty good. Feb 23, 2020 16:49:40 GMT -5 *
JNXT 7707: Lent is coming up, so I need to pick up a few more diets too :D Feb 23, 2020 22:17:48 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Jim, no TV = no political commercials. I love it. Feb 23, 2020 22:18:39 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Jerry- can you believe I fasted from hobby, thrift and record stores for Lent a few years ago? I decided that recreational shopping would stop for 40 days. At least on the LHS side, to be honest, I did have to stock up on couplers before Ash Wednesday! :D Feb 24, 2020 12:40:29 GMT -5 *
JNXT 7707: My hat is off to you JF - that is a world-class exercise in denial. Feb 24, 2020 12:45:03 GMT -5
rbturner: I haven't 'bought' anything since 2014. I have traded repair work for stuff. Someone got a N&W diesel out of that arrangement. Feb 24, 2020 13:18:14 GMT -5
mph: I’m giving up my New Year’s Resolutions for Lent. Feb 24, 2020 14:08:17 GMT -5
methuener: I'm with you, MPH! Feb 24, 2020 17:27:26 GMT -5
burlington77: True story: I made reference in class today to Sri Lanka. A student asked me what that was. Then I figured out by the puzzled looks that nobody--and these are 15/16 yr olds--new what that was. They had absolutely no idea. Feb 24, 2020 21:05:56 GMT -5
burlington77: I further went on to ask more students, older and younger, 13-17, what Sri Lanka is. I only got a handful who could simply say that's a country. The rest had no clue and had never heard of it. Feb 24, 2020 21:08:10 GMT -5
burlington77: I'm not saying every kid should know the world's geography or anything, but these kids didn't even recognize the words. Am I that out of touch? It gets harder every day because all these kids know is what TikTok tells them. Feb 24, 2020 21:10:37 GMT -5
burlington77: And then they would say to me "Okay, Boomer". Sorry for the rant. Feb 24, 2020 21:11:04 GMT -5
rbturner: And these are the kids who will administer your health care in a few years. Feb 24, 2020 21:14:00 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Isn't Sri-Lanka a hot sauce? (rofl) Feb 24, 2020 21:46:25 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Yes, they should know Sri Lanka. You know the old computer saying, garbage in, garbage out? That applies here I think. Feb 24, 2020 23:16:54 GMT -5
toyhoarder: They not only don't know anything, they don't even suspect anything. I get the "Boomer" comment, too. Sri Lanka?? My map still calls it Ceylon. Time for an upgrade. Feb 25, 2020 7:26:08 GMT -5
NickelPlate: I find an "Ok, Zoomer!" retort with rolled eyes and a valley girl voice can be quite effective. 😄 Feb 25, 2020 16:13:54 GMT -5 *
John: The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. >>>> Feb 25, 2020 19:59:15 GMT -5
John: >>>>>> They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.” >>>> Socrates Feb 25, 2020 20:02:10 GMT -5
rbturner: Anyone else getting Pro Boards "failure" messages? Feb 26, 2020 13:42:35 GMT -5
