    Just for fun. I've decided to make the from cartridge to double edge and in shopping around, checking out all my options realized there's a whole cadre of guys who've either been using double edge for some time or who have made the switch from cartridges, fed up with the high cost of...

    Have you read the Declaration of Independence?

    I feel it needs to be pointed out that July 4th is NOT a celebration of independence. Rather, it is a celebration of an ASSERTION OF INDEPENDENCE, of the right to independence. I would urge everyone to read it this July 4th. Takes maybe all of 5 minutes: Declaration of Independence - Text...

    Songs you enjoy singing the most in church

    I love worshipping in song. Some songs just stand out above all others - especially when the congregation has been taught to sing in 4-part harmony. This is one of my all-time favorites, it is a 4-part round, beginning with the altos, then the bass, then tenors, and finally sopranos. It's...

    What's on your Bucket List?

    I know there've been several other threads on this topic, but they've kinda petered out so I thought I'd venture a new one. We were having lunch the other day and I saw a Red Wings hockey game getting ready to start in an open stadium where it was snowing and it got me to thinking about...

    DP Timing Out too soon?

    Dunno if this is a suggestion, per se, but it is a bother. I get logged out after maybe 5 or 10 minutes (haven't timed it) of inactivity - which inactivity is usually the time I'm taking to write or respond to another post. I've learned to copy what I've written after a few minutes (having had...

    Big "A" Atheism versus little "a" atheism

    I know a number of atheists, some acquaintances, some being good friends - they are not believers and I respect their lack of belief, and they all respect my belief. We get along. We can do things together; we can talk, I can be who I am and they can be who they are. NP Strictly to make a...

    Polar Bear Population Reaches "Carrying Capacity"

    Of course, she's just a zoologist; she probably knows squat about CO2 and anomalies and probably couldn't tell you either whether we're cooling, warming, or merely changing. Just curious to know who the anti-deniers of the global warming hoax are here. ;)
