According to statistics, the average person over 18 consumes 3 alcoholic drinks a week. Do drinking...
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 14, 2019:
I am so below average. Waaaayyyy back when, I dated an alcoholic. If he bought a six pack of beer, he drank it all when he got home. Not one tonight, one in a few days and two on Friday night. He ended up getting a DUI and kicked out of the Army (that is how long ago it was, I got out of the Army in 1983.) So, anytime I see signs of alcoholism it is a HUGE ref flag. So yes, drinking habits will affect how I feel about someone I'm dating. And right now I don't drink on dates. I have made too many bad decisions under the influence of alcohol, and now it makes me sleepy. I'm not the life of the party any longer.

If he gets is not the question. I'm sure he has it. That makes the question "What are we doing about it." And that answer is not a damn thing.
If I have a member in my group that has me blocked will I be able to see their posts and comments?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 14, 2019:
I have a policy that if someone blocks me they are out of my groups (blocked) for precisely that reason. If I can't see what they're posting, I don't know if they are stirring stuff up or not.

When did your vegan\vegetarian journey begin? What made you make that change?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 14, 2019:
I have always done a meatless day where I'd cook dinner with the family with no meat or animal products. One of my kids went vegetarian when she was a teen (she's now 31 and eats anything except pork.) Mostly that was just for variety in our diet. At that time the common wisdom was to combine proteins (different foods with different components that make complete proteins, thank goodness we now know that isn't necessary.) I've always been interested in nutrition and cooking. And then post divorce and unemployed I got into eating cheap and nutritious. I was also into DIY and recycling/reduce/reuse. That led into information on how wasteful, inhumane and harmful for the planet that commercial farming practices are. So, trying to avoid becoming diabetic, and still wanting to eat cheap and healthy, I usually eat vegetarian. Some weeks I do go so far as vegan. And some weeks I am a total omnivore. For the most part I eat vegetarian. Due to some changes I am no longer pre-diabetic and healthier than I've been in several years.

Get involved in something so you can meet other people with similar interests. The American Humanists Association has chapters in Texas, that might be a good place to start. Try Meet Up for other interests you might have. Omaha has a Meet Up for Baby Boomers. Our Humanist chapter also uses Meet Up. Volunteer somewhere, maybe the Humane Society.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 12, 2019:
Oh, and he goes on to say... "One outcome of the sexual revolution", Benedict wrote, is that “pedophilia was then also diagnosed as allowed and appropriate.” Diagnosed as allowed AND appropriate?!?!? You guys are suppose to be priests not physicians. So much for the church holding the moral high ground. Pedophilia has never been allowed or appropriate. Benedict has turned up his "blame-thrower" to a twelve to blame anything but his own institution and its leadership for their crimes. Pathetic.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 11, 2019:
My late former FIL would tell his wife to "just get over it." She was depressed, anxious, very timid woman. So it was no surprise that when I told my ex I was experiencing some depression he told me he didn't want to hear about it. He had never learned compassion, or much in the way of being emotionally supportive.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 10, 2019:
https://agnostic.com/member/kenneth12345/posts He is a different corrosion expert. He did quote the buybull in one of his responses to a post. He had made two stupid posts, pictures of a large group of people, all of the wearing black and I think all male. I didn't look that closely. His English is good, however I'm sure I have read it before. His responses though limited are good English. Claims to be from Rowlett, TX, but travels the world. In his profile picture he is sitting at a desk in front of a wall that ways Ahiska Turkish American Council. I don't get how that fits with corrosion expert. He is quite swarthy, so maybe Turkish. He's following a bunch of gals, mostly from Texas, some from all over. Methinks he art a scammer.

I love my instapot. I cook all sorts of stuff in it. I often use it for batches of quinoa or other grains that I freeze up serving size and then add to meals as needed. I use it often when the kids are coming over for dinner. I made a Tangine in it once, the house smelled delicious for hours. I use it for a slow cooker, I have made yogurt in it, sweet potatoes, and hard boiled eggs to name a few. I use it for a steamer.

Do you meditate?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 9, 2019:
I started meditating about 7 months ago when I parted ways with a job that was very stressful. I think meditation has made me calmer and a better person. I know it usually helps me sleep better. I started a new job 5 weeks ago, I have been lax in my meditation practice, but I know I feel less anxiety when I do meditate. There is nothing religious about it, though when I was a practicing xian I did some meditation then. I don't consider it a religious practice. I use an app called Calm. It is good stuff.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 8, 2019:
In my last job I had a short term disability claim of a woman who had spasmodic dysphonia. Her job had been marketing/giving presentations/training of some sort. It ended her career. She saw all sorts of specialists, and we had to communicate totally by email. I spoke to her on the phone a couple of times, and email was actually faster. It took her too long to coordinate breathing and talking, and she had no volume. She ended up being rolled to long term disability, it is likely she will have to file for SSDI.
