  1. Now tell me and tell the truth. Did you intentionally cut yourself? I hear that alot in Therapy as my hands, legs, ankles, and arms are inspected for cuts and burns. I'm not a cutter type but periodically I still have to show my legs and arms. :thumbs:


    :P Cutters actually cut themselves to feel something. It's not actually that they enjoy the pain it's more of a release. It's like they get an emotional build up and the cutting unburdens them of the pain and bad feelings. :)


    B) Now be a good little Trekker/Trekkie and clean your cut, wipe your tears, treat yourself to your favorite goodie, and turn on your favorite ST series. :lol:

  2. As I recall I would make a spray bottle of 1/3 apple vinager and 2/3 water and shake it and spray Daniel's son when he came home all sunburned. I'm more olive skinned and don't burn as Daniel and his son does but a friend at work told me this remedy and the son by marriage says it takes the burn out of his skin. :blink: You know whatever works and can make the husband and son feel better.

    :bow: Well I can handle Troi and Riker's visit but, B) I will forever thank God we don't have to see the likes of Wesley Crusher there. :rofl: I'd bail if I knew Wesley was going to show up and be that know it all brat.

  4. I find it interesting that Yellowstone may erupt. Perhaps even in my lifetime. I know that there may be large loss of life, the weather will change, and that crops my fail due to cold. Also I know that the sunshine may be lost to us for sometime due to all the ash in the air. Breathing in the ash would be hazardous too and may cause Cancer. Still I watched Mt St Helens erupt and I got hooked on reading and watching other volcanoes erupting too.

  5. I've been giving thought to these questions for sometime and I can't help but wonder why Odo the shape shifter represented itself as a male humanoid. I did watch the DS9 series and I often wondered if Odo *tried on* other genders and species? Was there actually genders at Odo's home world and is gender some chemical compound in Odo's natural state or is it what Odo forms itself to be between its knees when it decides to take on a humanoid form? :yahoo: :blink: :VBGal:

  6. I post when I have something to say. It's within my nature to post a lot then go on quiet mode, lurk, and maybe work on a story on another site or two and then come back like a tornado. In the words of my beloved spouse and what a way with words he has, my dearest Daniel says, 'Opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one and some folks even live with a few.' God bless my Daniel and his inspiring words of wisdom!

  7. Ah, Dicentra spectabilis, the bleeding heart as I remember it they are considered perennials in Zones 3 to 7 I think it would be safe to say they would do well in California. I'm in zone 5 and the many years I sold them I only sold them as a hanging basket arrangement. Please check with you local nursery to make absolutely certain as it can be painful to invest time and $$ into plants and only get one otr maybe two growing seasons out of them.

  8. Daniel use to take me to the drive-in around here but after a visiting it several times we got to know the owner. He always seemed to be a nice fellow of strict moral code when it came to teens and young adult visiting the drive-in. One evening Daniel went to get us some treats and I waited in the car after about 10 minutes I started in when Daniel caught my arm and announced we were leaving. Apparently Daniel had a conversation of sort with the man. On the way home Daniel said we wouldn't be going back that the man was a pervert and a commie. I'm still clueless about all at went on but Daniel likes to keep me innocent to some things. B)

  9. Beavis and Butthead was another that was crappy! They caused a small rift in my marriage, I try always to be a good wife by honoring my husband's wishes but there was no way I was going to sit through a 2 hour movie with them strammer non-sense. I flatly refused to go to the movies and I think it hurt Daniel's feeling that we couldn't enjoy this program together.

  10. I would have to say *Bewitched*. Here's why Darrin was the ultimate big baby. He was afraid of Samantha's powers and a control freak on a major scale. If you love someone you don't try to stop them from being what nature or God intended they be. In a family you love a person and accept the difference someone has brought into a marriage not impose threats and make someone feel bad about who or what they are.

  11. MMM, now that could be interesting and I never put into words why Daniel churns my butter. When I met Daniel he was far different than anyone I've ever met 'English' or 'Amish' there was just something about him, he wasn't even my type. For years I loved a young man that died in an accident that involved a truck. The young man was very close to me and we grew up together, he use to draw lovely pictures on paper with ink and he made me laugh. There was just so much about how we just clicked together. After Isaiah died the magic of life was gone and other young men would call for me but often I spurned them. I first ignored Daniel and his interest in me as I met him on rumspringa and he was far different. He was completely opposite to what I thought I wanted. He was bold and strong, he not only came looking for me at my parents home but introduced himself to my family as my boyfriend and LOVER! I nearly fainted, unmarried Amish girls are virgins until they marry. Daniel told my father that he had come to get me and we were going to marry. My mother started raising a fuss and Daniel told her, 'Be quiet woman and get in the kitchen.' Right there I was in love! No one ever raised their voice to my momma and I would of followed him to the moon if I had to. We've been in wedded bliss for 16 years and I joined him in the 'English' world as I firmly believe if he had to he would of joined me in the 'Amish' life.

    Also on another thread, someone mentioned why Picard did not intervene in this timeline, which is a good question.  I loved the uniforms, especially T'Pol's and Hoshis  :dude: And is Hoshi's name in this universe just the first two letters of her first name, if you know what I mean? :dude:  All the characters are wonderfully and evilly skewed.  It was awesone to see the the TOS ship and see the bridge get lit up.  Excellent 9.5.  Can't wait to see what they do in part 2.  Amazing work by the cast and fantastic sets.  The opening blew me (and you know who) away.  The theme was awesome! Encore!   :dude:  :bow:  :bow:  :bow:



    I agree whole heartedly but sadly I have to say it's bitter sweet to know that these are the final shows and finally getting just a glimpse into the Star Trek universe that many of us first encountered.
