I am Liberal in my outlook. I am a DIYer, reader, crafter, gardener, traveler. I always have projects, but take time for loved ones and friends.
I have made changes to routine and diet, I'm toning up and slimming down, it is very exciting.
I am a Cat Mom. I like dogs, and hope to have one again one day. Cats are my fur kids.
I hope I am always kind (heavy traffic doesn't count... well, shouldn't) I have a good sense of humor and sense of what matters. I am very protective of those I care for.
I have lived all over the US and overseas as well, 23 moves in my life. After 19 moves I ended up 50 miles from where I was born, I've lived in Omaha for 15 years.
I am not interested in long distance.
I am mostly vegetarian but not militant about it or perfect.

'This Is What Solidarity Looks Like,' Says Ocasio-Cortez, as Wayfair Workers Vow Walkout to Protest Company for Working With Child Detention Centers "We believe that the current actions of the United States and their contractors at the southern border do not represent an ethical partnership Wayfair should choose to be a part of." byEoin Higgins, staff writer Employees of home goods online superstore Wayfair plan to walk out of work Wednesday afternoon in a rebuke to the company's cooperation with President Donald Trump's anti-migrant policies. "This is what solidarity looks like—a reminder that everyday people have real power, as long as we're brave enough to use it." —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez The action, which will take place at the company's Boston Back Bay offices, is scheduled for 1:30pm ET Wednesday. Wayfair employees found out last week that the company was providing bedroom furniture to government contractor BCFS for its new facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas. Common Dreams reported on the facility's construction on June 20, citing WFAA reporter Jason Whitley, who said on Twitter that the camp would "house more than 1,000 captured children." Once the employees discovered their complicity in the border detention of children, 547 of them wrote a letter to the company's executives on June 21 demanding that the company cease cooperating with the federal government. "We believe that the current actions of the United States and their contractors at the southern border do not represent an ethical partnership Wayfair should choose to be a part of," the employees wrote. Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah and his leadership team, in a letter to employees Monday night, rejected the request. "As a retailer, it is standard practice to fulfill orders for all customers and we believe it is our business to sell to any customer who is acting within the laws of the countries within which we operate," said the letter. "We believe all of our stakeholders, employees, customers, investors, and suppliers included, are best served by our commitment to fulfill all orders. This does not indicate support for the opinions or actions of the groups and individuals who purchase from us." The company confirmed the authenticity of the letter to The Boston Globe but did not comment further. Attempts by Common Dreams to reach Wayfair were unsuccessful. As activist Alexis Goldstein pointed out on Twitter, Wayfair is actually providing materials to a government that is breaking the law. Support for the workers was growing online as the news spread. RAICES, the Texas-based immigration legal advocacy group, praised the retailer's workers for taking a stand. "We applaud Wayfair workers who are walking out to protest Wayfair profiting ...

HippieChick58 comments on Jun 25, 2019:
I would say it would depend on the denomination. I was involved with several church's VBS (vacation bible school) programs when I was a good xian wife. We looked at many programs, some really tried to scare the love of god into the children. Truly some bordered on abusive. We chose other programs. I also substituted for the SS programs, very benign. BUT, I was always with a fairly liberal church, mostly UMC, and they don't play games like that.

Pushing back against hoaxers: Father of boy killed in Sandy Hook massacre wins defamation suit | ...
HippieChick58 comments on Jun 22, 2019:
HARTFORD, Conn. — The father of a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre has won a defamation lawsuit against the authors of a book that claimed the shooting never happened — the latest victory for victims' relatives who have been taking a more aggressive stance against conspiracy theorists. The book, "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook," has also been pulled from shelves to settle claims against its publisher filed by Lenny Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was killed in the shooting. "My face-to-face interactions with Mr. Pozner have led me to believe that Mr. Pozner is telling the truth about the death of his son," Dave Gahary, the principal officer at publisher Moon Rock Books, said Monday. "I extend my most heartfelt and sincere apology to the Pozner family." A Wisconsin judge issued a summary judgment Monday against authors James Fetzer and Mike Palacek, a ruling that was separate from the settlement between Pozner and the book's publisher. A trial to decide damages has been set for October. Pozner has been pushing back for years against hoaxers who have harassed him, subjected him to death threats and claimed that he was an actor and his son never existed. He has spent years getting Facebook and others to remove conspiracy videos and set up a website to debunk conspiracy theories. Lately, the fight has been joined by others who lost relatives in the Dec. 14, 2012, school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. After quietly enduring harassment and ridiculous assertions for years, some have changed their approach, deciding the only way to stop it is to confront it. Their efforts have turned the tables on the hoaxers, including Alex Jones, host of the conspiracy-driven Infowars website. Robbie Parker, whose 6-year-old daughter Emilie was among 20 first-graders and six educators killed at Sandy Hook, spent years ignoring people who called him a crisis actor. His family moved to the West Coast, but still the harassment didn't stop. He would get letters from people who found his address. He was once stopped in a parking garage by a man who berated him and said the shooting never happened. "You are taught when you are young that you ignore bullies and eventually they will leave you alone," Parker said. "But as time went on, and my other girls were getting older, I realized they weren't stopping and some of this was getting worse and getting more personal." Parker is now part of a lawsuit against Jones, has testified before Congress and pushed for changes on social media platforms, such as YouTube, which announced this month it will prohibit videos that deny the Sandy Hook shooting and other "well-documented events." "It wasn't until the lawsuits and until it became a mainstream news story that people realized they were ...

HippieChick58 comments on Jun 19, 2019:
(Franziska Barczyk/for The Washington Post) By Joyce Cohen June 17 at 12:00 PM It was supposed to be a joyful family gathering. Last spring, Kim Powers-Brown took an overnight train from her home in eastern Washington state to join her relatives at a restaurant near Seattle. Because of her hearing difficulties — she cannot understand speech amid background noise — the group of four requested a quieter spot. “The waitress said no, that side of the restaurant was closed and she was the only waitress on duty — it would be too much trouble,” Powers-Brown said. The family was led to a corner table, with a speaker playing music overhead. She couldn’t understand a word. Her brother demanded they sit in the quieter closed section. “I begged him not to embarrass me,” said Powers-Brown, who was born partially deaf and wears a hearing aid in one ear. [Why I will start including accessibility information in my restaurant reviews] ut we were still treated rudely,” she said. “It was very uncomfortable. I felt terrible that our get-together meal was such a disaster because of my needs.” Under Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act, restaurants — as places of public accommodation — must accommodate disabilities. But what if the disability is a hearing impairment, and the request is for a lower volume? On this issue, the law has largely remained silent. Hard-of-hearing diners report a vast range of responses when they seek softer music or quieter seating. Sometimes the music is turned down or off, and sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes it is even turned up. Maybe the volume is declared unchangeable, set by corporate overseers. Or there’s no available seating far from the clattering kitchen, the droning ventilation, the hearty partyers. Powers-Brown, 60, who is earning a library degree, rarely dines out with anyone but her husband. She never even thought to request quiet. “I was brought up to adjust to others,” she said. Instead of struggling to converse over a meal, she reads. The law, though, requires “full and equal enjoyment in places of public accommodation,” said Daniel Fink, a retired Los Angeles doctor and a noise activist. His paper on the disability-rights aspects of ambient noise was presented at a recent meeting of the Acoustical Society of America. “I can guarantee that people with hearing impairments don’t fully enjoy noisy restaurants,” he said. Pisco y Nazca in the District, where dining-room noise levels last fall measured 95 decibels, or about as loud as a power mower. (Deb Lindsey/for The Washington Post) Restaurants these days are louder than ever, to the point where critics (led by The Post’s Tom Sietsema) check volume levels and diners grouse about them....

A few months ago, I had lunch with the writer behind one of my favorite movies of the year, the agent who made the deal and the producer who packaged the project. I wanted to hear all about the process and perhaps find an opportunity to collaborate. When the server came to take our order, I flashed to that scene in “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” when Mira Sorvino walks into a diner in a striped skirt suit and asks the waitress, “Do you have some sort of businesswomen’s special?” Had there been any sort of businesswomen’s special that day, our group probably couldn’t have ordered it. Someone was slogging through the Whole30 program, someone had eliminated dairy, and someone else was simply trying to be “good” after a “bad” weekend. The producer said it didn’t matter how “good” she was. She had lost the baby weight and though she may look tolerable in clothes, under the Spanx her stomach was a horror show. The writer said she had so much cellulite on her thighs she looked diseased. I gazed around the restaurant, longingly, wondering what the men eating cheeseburgers were talking about. At one time, I too would gleefully have torn myself apart. I despised my body, and my devotion to changing it amounted to years of unpaid labor, starting with a bout of bulimia in high school. In preparation for my wedding, I worked out twice a day on 800 calories. From there I moved on to counting macros, replacing rice with cauliflower pellets, 13-day cleanses, intermittent fasting and an elimination diet that barred sugar, dairy and nightshades like potatoes. Every new regimen ended in the same violent binge. I’d wait for my husband to go to bed so that I could obliterate the pantry without him asking, “Are you O.K.?” For the next few days, I would throw myself on the altar of “clean eating,” only to start the cycle all over again. I called this poisonous relationship between a body I was indoctrinated to hate and food I had been taught to fear “wellness.” This was before I could recognize wellness culture for what it was — a dangerous con that seduces smart women with pseudoscientific claims of increasing energy, reducing inflammation, lowering the risk of cancer and healing skin, gut and fertility problems. But at its core, “wellness” is about weight loss. It demonizes calorically dense and delicious foods, preserving a vicious fallacy: Thin is healthy and healthy is thin. Almost three years ago, I moved to Los Angeles from New York. After death and divorce, moving is supposed to...

Which is why I have had to cut back on the amount of time I spend on news sites. When I feel my anxiety ratchet up, I know I've gone too far. I walk a fine line between well informed and hysteria.

Wasn't allowed to leave the house unless I was working... I had a wicked step witch. So I was reading, doing homework, maybe watching TV. Usually reading or something in my room away from the stepwitch.

Is Iowa, New South Wales Australia a real place? I can't find it on Google Maps. Rather contradictory, doesn't believe in any gods, but does believe in Jesus. English is not great, pictures look like a real dad kinda guy. However, the rest looks like total scammer.
This answers one question I have heard from some concerned citizens.

I think make them clean latrines (toilets/restrooms) with a toothbrush. Also make them take critical thinking classes until they are able to be responsible, informed citizens.

When I was indoctrinated, they told us the husbands should be the decision makers and heads of households. I passed that on to my now ex and left the decisions to him. That lasted about 3 hours if that long. He may have been a Major but I was the General and he didn't like and didn't want to know most parts of what I did.

Is he too careful or just being very respectful. I think he is a welcome change from the likes of the sleezeball in chief Der Donald and other of his ilk.
