    I love being outside. I enjoy gardening , fishing and camping. My favorite vacationing spots are beaches and the mountains. I also enjoy writing especially poetry. I have published a children's book "Color Me Santa," which is available via amazon.com I draw, paint and like to make craft projects. It is understood of course that I love Startrek.
  1. I don't know whether this should even be a topic . But I just wanted to let those know who might wonder where I am that I am leaving the web site ............I don't participate as much as I used for the same reason that I am leaving..........I have watched many others come and go and hoped this would not be the case with my self...........But the last few threads that I have participated in; as well as some that I have read, have shown me clearly that it's time for me to move on to other areas that support my interest in Star Trek.
  2. Bleeding hearts are among my favorite perennials. They grow well here in North Carolina, and we can have temperatures that go down in the single digits at times. I would give you this hint.......they don't like direct sunlight. even a little shade won't hurt. But if you put them in direct sun light, they will "get very upset" B) Seriously, they will probably not last one season.......I hope this information is helpful.
  3. I will keep you in my prayers.....Stay safe and return to us.
  4. I can only speak for myself, because I know that I don't post as much as I used to.........Yes we have had slumps here before. But I also think some of this may be due to some of the retaliations, and bickering that happen when members have disagreed or had different view points. Sometimes ugly things are said, and some members or guest may feel it isn't worth responding or getting involved.
  5. If this is true it make me very angry. I am really so very tired of all of the controls that industries are putting on our lives.....forcing us to switch from cassette tapes to cd's and from VCR's to to DVD's etc. There was nothing wrong with any of those older products, just as people shouldn't have to switch to digital in order to watch TV.... people should have choices in life......and what about people who can't afford digital cable or TV's with digital signals?...........I still play my cassettes and VCR tapes from 10 years ago. I have CD's, and DVD's that skip and get scratched within a month's time, and never play correctly again. I like to make my own choices and decisions............But lately all I can see around me in this country, is control, brainwashing and greed. :)
  6. My experience with modern day products has led me to believe that it's not about quality anymore. Ethics have changed. Products today are made to last only a short period of time...........so that you will be forced to buy new ones...........putting more money into the hands of the big companies who make them. This includes not only electronics but autombiles, washing machines, cameras, hot water heater, furnaces...........everything you purchase today, for the most part will not last like the products of yester-year. I have a small freezer that I bought back in 1978. It is still going strong. It has out lasted four frost free refrigerator/freezers. When my electricity goes out during winter storms; that freezer saves all of the food in my frost free freezer from going bad. The ice in that old freezer takes a very long time to melt. So I unload the frost free freezer into the old one...........I wouldn't sell that old freezer under any circumstances. It may be old fashioned, it may be old...but it's a lot better and reliable than what's on the market today.
  7. Many of you may find this web site helpful. Even with my hybrid car....I still use it to track down the cheapest gas prices in my area. Go to: gasbuddy.com
  8. This too is the worst time of year for me. I also believe this is going to be a long hot summer....which means bad air quality...not helping my situation. I take pills, shots......it's really rough. Winter is the only time I truly get relief.
  9. I't's good to hear that Voyager will return in 2006.........It was my favorite series. I have truly missed it.
  10. I have had many problems at self check outs. So I've stopped using them.
  11. I have some Star Trek action figures. Two of them I had autographed at a convention that I attended.
  12. Yes this is scary, but to me not surprising......Also, it could and does happen anywhere in these United States, not just in the south.. We live in a very, violent, volatile, scary society where people frequently resolve their discord by taking others lives.
  13. Yep! Sheetz is for real, and one of the least expensive companies to buy gasoline from. But maybe they are not in every of the country at this time 315511[/snapback]
  14. Perhaps I'm not understanding correctly...but if these other companies don't import oil.....why are their prices as high as the companies that do import..........I use Sheetz...I also drive a Toyota Prius, which is a hybrid car.........which also helps.
  15. In my opinion many of our US public officials are doing what they feel is appropriate for their careers at a time like this. They are not responding out of what they really feel. Pope John Paul II was very outspoken and critical of the both of the Bushs' Desert Storm and Persian Gulf war interventions. So as a Catholic when I heard President Bush make his statements regarding the Pope; there were some comments that he made that I did not for one minute believe he was truly sincere about...... I believe that Politicians do whatever they need to do to remain well thought of.
