And in Homestead, Florida, a father places his firearm in side his daughter's book bag and she carries it into school!

Oops!

Yeah, right! The father asserts that he intended to pawn the gun and "forgot" the gun was in the bag. I'm having a difficult time understanding what's going on in the parent's heads nowadays..... Maybe the process of buying a firearm should some type of common sense test, too.

It doesn't surprise me that we do not see eye-to-eye on certain aspects.

This is a rhetorical question, no response needed and to keep things consistent, I'm sticking with Aussieman187's name. For whatever reason, Aussieman187 decided to blacklist me. Interesting FACT, I even verified him, SOOPER!, that's his prerogative. But in the same breath, if Aussieman187 doesn't want me to be involved with him in any way, why would he wriggle his way into a contest that I created using my own points? Bottom line, it makes zero sense to me.

You thought this was breaking news?

admin implemented this many months ago if not more than 1 year ago and I believe that this was done so to ensure profiles were not established by people under the age of 18 years old.

Labeling someone as being "nice" is subjective and it was he who decided to blacklist me.....first. He blacklisted me yet had the nerve to join in "my" photo contest which I thought was messed up.

Being blacklisted by another member has germane consequences but not being able to view and vote in a photo contest because I have been blacklisted by the member that created the contest should have no bearing on my ability to vote.



By bella! 29,Jan,23 13:23
admin , I was asked by one of my friends to vote for him in a Free Theme Photo Contest but sadly, I'm not able to because I was blacklisted by the sponsor.

Years ago, I was blacklisted by both lix and Aussieman187 and was surprised that I was so "bothersome and deserving" of their blacklist HOWEVER worthy of Aussieman187's presence in a photo contest that I sponsored. I brought this to your attention and you tweaked your program so that blacklisted members couldn't even see the photo contests developed and sponsored by those who blacklist them. Okay.

Is it possible for you to consider this option, allow blacklisted people to see the contests, vote in the contests the only thing they would be excluded from is joining in and submitting a picture to be a contestant in the contest?

Rod Stewart, FOREVER YOUNG

May the good Lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to Heaven
With a prince or a vagabond
And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Yeah
And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell
But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or LOSE
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
For-forever young, forever young

The entire matter makes my head spin. A 6 year old with access to a gun. A 6 year old that has an "acute disability" with a "care plan" that requires one of his/her parents accompany them during the school day. How is it that the teacher/school administration were aware that the child had a gun and nothing happened, the powers that be, did not do something about it!?

Sweet Jesus, why would a child with such unique needs be allowed to attend public school. Shouldn't the parents be required to home school their child? What the heck is going on within the house that a child has access to a gun?

In his own words, PA-Moron has violated the rules of forums; not respectful to other members here.



By bella! 28,Jan,23 20:09
Any time PA-Moron "opens his mouth", I get a good chuckle! He's got the nerve to refer to me as a bigot and racist which is laughable. Apparently, he doesn't recognize that his words whether they are posted in the Forum or in his ill written blogs, definitely reflect that he is a bigot, racist as well as not too smart!



By bella! 28,Jan,23 19:00
Um, you feel that the chaos that ensued with the arrest and death of George Floyd was a form of "protest"?



By bella! 28,Jan,23 18:48
JustWill , as a teacher, are you able to speculate on what type of "acute disability" and "care plan" a 6 year old could be under that requires either their mother or father to accompany the child to school each day? Also, since there is this plan in place, seems odd that the child would be allowed to attend school by themselves, when neither the mother or father has accompanied him/her and lo and behold, the child has a gun and shoots the teacher, no?

By bella! 28,Jan,23 18:43
Most likely, the same thing.

The odd thing is that in May, 2020, the African-American community in Minneapolis were looting and burning the city down when while police officers used excessive force and a white police officer knelt on the neck of George Floyd.



By bella! 28,Jan,23 17:36
I kinda think you're right.



By bella! 28,Jan,23 17:35
I wonder what type of "acute disability" and "care plan" a 6 year old could be under that requires either their mother or father to accompany the child to school each day. And it seems odd that the day that neither the mother or father are at school, the child has a gun and shoots the teacher!?

There's no need to be apologetic about your posts of "older" tunes as I'm right there with you. The AMAZING thing is that you are able to recall and post so many wonderful songs and me, I'm "kicking myself" after the fact, wondering why I didn't think of that!

Really, you aren't able to post '****'? Well, I'll be! The other day I attempted to post a song with the word '****', it was censored and I edited my post by spelling it as gamblíng. The upside-down exclamation mark did the trick!

Yep, the song/word LANDSLIDE is excluded.

Led Zeppelin, IMMIGRANT SONG

Ah-ah, ah!
Ah-ah, ah!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
Ah-ah, ah!
Ah-ah, ah!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore
Of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your LOSING
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ahh, ah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Genesis, LAND OF CONFUSION

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street
Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger has gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
They're burning into the night
There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go around
Can't you see this is the LAND of confusion?
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in
Oh, Superman, where are you now?
When every thing's gone wrong somehow?
Men of steel, these men of power
I'm losing control by the hour
This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go around
Tell me why this is the LAND of confusion
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in
I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake up this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago
I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know we'll never keep
There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go around
Can't you see this is the LAND of confusion?
Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for
This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given
Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to

Across the road, eh? You are a lucky duck to be able to live in such a beautiful area. Like I said, Rick Shores looks amazing as far location/atmosphere goes! As for steaks, I prefer bone in, too.

By bella! 27,Jan,23 17:20
Is Rick Shores where you "devoured" the 900g steak? The location looks amazing!



By bella! 27,Jan,23 16:45
Just an f.y.i., it's still Friday, January 27, in the United States.

As you might guess, WE Americans are metrically challenged, right? I had to convert 900 g to ounces and that equates to 31.75 oz so basically you ate a 2 lb steak and that's unbelievable! Was everything ala carte because I would think your fine dining experience might include soup or salad and choice of potato or vegetable. Regardless, I can't imagine eating 2 lbs of beef at one time.

Back to what's going on in Oz....the Australian Open, Australia Day and YOUR birthday, dang, Dev, I would have thought your employer gives you your birthday off.

Hey, it's good to know that with all the colloquialisms Australians have, that SHIT-FACED means the same to you as it does to me!

The Temptations, (I KNOW) I'M LOSING YOU

Your love is fading, I can feel your love fading
Girl, it's fading away from me
'Cause your touch, your touch has grown cold
As if someone else controls your very soul
I've fooled myself long as I can
I can feel the presence of another man
Girl, when you speak my name
It's just not the same
Ooh baby, I'm LOSING you
It's in the air
It's everywhere
Ooh, I'm LOSING you (LOSING you)
When I look into your eyes
A reflection of a face I see
I'm hurtin', downhearted and worried girl
'Cause that face doesn't belong to me
It's all over your face
Someone's taken my place
Ooh baby, I'm LOSING you
You see it's in the air
It's everywhere
Ooh, baby I'm LOSING you
Oh yeah (LOSING you)
I don't wanna LOSE you, no-no-no
Oh baby, oh baby, yeah-yeah
Ooh I wanna, well well, ooh baby-baby
I can tell when we kiss
From the tenderness I miss
Ooh, baby I'm LOSING you
I can feel it in my bones
Any day, you'll be gone
(I'm LOSING you) I'm LOSING you
Yeah, ooh my love
Baby, baby, baby, baby your love, your love
Oh baby (I'm LOSING you)
I don't wanna LOSE you, no-no baby, no-no baby
Oh baby, I'm LOSING you
I'm LOSING you yeah, oh

Bob Seger, BEAUTIFUL LOSER

He wants to dream like a young man
With the wisdom of an old man
He wants his home and security
He wants to live like a sailor at sea
Beautiful LOSER, where you gonna fall?
You realize you just can't have it all
He's your oldest and your best friend
If you need him, he'll be there again
He's always willing to be second best
A perfect lodger, a perfect guest
Beautiful LOSER, read it on the wall
And realize, you just can't have it all
You can't have it all, you can't have it all
Oh, oh, can't have it all
He'll never make any enemies
He won't complain if he's caught in a freeze
He'll always ask, he'll always say please
Beautiful LOSER, never take it all
'Cause it's easier, faster when you fall
You just don't need it all
Oh, oh, you just don't need it all

Deep Purple, SMOKE ON THE WATER

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile, yeah
We didn't have much time now
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the WATER, a fire in the sky
(Smoke) on the water, you guys are great
They burned down the gamblíng house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
He was pulling kids out the ground now
When it all was over
Find another place
Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the WATER, a fire in the sky
Smoke on the WATER
Burn it down
We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty, cold and bare
The Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Huh, making our music there now
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We made a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the WATER, a fire in the sky
Smoke on the WATER
(I can't hear anything)
one more time
(Smoke on the WATER) hey!
