I'm a retired science and health teacher and tutor (taught 1967 to 2012), and a father of two successful, independent adults (one step-, one that I'm in touch with often). I'm a grandpa to one grand- and one grand .

I consider myself quite fit, and healthy! Full head of hair, and close to ideal weight. I get a workout in every day! Sweating is in my daily -book!

I do volunteer work a local botanical garden that's famous having the biggest/best Bonsai collection in America!.

Search Botanical garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

I've been there since 2016, focusing on the veggie garden.

See my pics of me working the veggies and helping with the Garden of Lights!

Curious - Can probiotics help in reducing weight?
Robecology comments on Jun 22, 2020:
There's no way around it; if you want to lose weight, you have to get comfortable with being hungry part of your day. Best, toward the evenings. I've found that even If I've been "bad"....eating junk food, no probiotics (greek yogurt's my favorite) - but stopping eating early in the evening.....say by 5 PM....and then letting hunger creep in....that the next morning I weigh less. It's about controlling, and tolerating hunger. Simple;

Robecology comments on Jun 22, 2020:
Point taken about the "sparse" service centers...but remember the Kia has thousands more moving parts; pistons, valves, transmissions, etc that the simple Tesla doesn't have.....thus it needs far less servicing! I've had Teslas since 2013 and have NEVER taken it in for any fluids, checks, tests, etc. A few times I had to call them..and they came to me for a problem headlight, problems with the trim, etc....but that's it. I hope you get to test drive the Y....Elon said it should "outsell the S, 3 and X combined" https://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-predicts-tesla-model-y-outsell-s-3-x-2019-10

Happy Saturday everyone! Can you drive a stick?
Robecology comments on Jun 20, 2020:
Standard, or "stick" shift was common in the 50's....but with the growth of "automatic" transmissions...then "stick shift" went away. It's challenging to learn....and requires special skills. It will fade away as automatic transmissions become simpler. The Electric Vehicle that I drive....a Tesla...doesn't even have a "transmission" nor "differential"....so "automatics" will also soon fade away. In fact, Tesla has 95% fewer moving parts than a I.C.E. car. https://www.tesla.com/drive
Hi all. If you think you are open-minded, how open-mined are you - honestly?
Robecology comments on Jun 20, 2020:
Flexibility, tolerance, courtesy, empathy...they are rare and not common traits. You have to be raised with them to "feel" them or "live" them. If it's "your ideal" then there's that seed planted in your mind....that maybe it's the way to be...so I would say "of course" it's possible.

A very thorough explanation of the topic ... What’s antifa?
Robecology comments on Jun 17, 2020:
Except I disagree with one comment Roger Sollenberger made; "I think first there’s this misconception or common misunderstanding of equating antifa with American soldiers fighting fascist regimes in World War II. You can’t be an anti-fascist if you’re fighting for the U.S. military. " His reasoning is logical...and the U.S. military wasn't nor is now "anti-faxcist" per se....but they were fighting fascism...and that makes them...fhe folks in so many memes posted showing WW II vets fighting - anti-fascist. He is right in calling it a "non-group"...sort of like "veganism" or "bird watches"....very loosely organized...no "membership" no "leaders"...but again...the U.S.military, despite them not being officially anti-fascist...("AntiFa") were, indeed, anti-fascist.

ANY population that gets overcrowded becomes "asexual". Proven in scientific studies decades ago; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf Malthus gave us a hint in 1812; "As the quantity of life increases, the quality of life decreases".
Well, maybe there IS a god after all.
Robecology comments on Jun 16, 2020:
@Charlie (mtnhome) Please...there is not one trace of evidence for any "god" or superpower. You're agnostic, remember? And it is fair...it's called "population density pressure"...every organism - from fruit flies to rats to us - has a limit of population - beyond which they become hostile, asexual, hoarding, and aggressive.

Robecology comments on Jun 14, 2020:
It's just as wrong to generalize that all churches are corrupt ...it's a kind of prejudice or "pre-judgement" based on generalizations and isolated incidents. We who are agnostic simply are non-believers because we "don't know" for sure that a "god" or superpower" or any or all of the myths of religion are real...but that doesn't mean they're not.

The looting is by a severely socially paralyzed minority. They're out of work. They are used to stealing to get what they want. Their family are mostly in prison. They are suffering hardships you and I will never know. And the stores that are looted aren't set up to prevent it very well. Empathize with the looters. They are suffering, and struggling.

Robecology comments on Jun 12, 2020:
As a life-long Ecologist - I've been saving and conserving the dumbest stuff. I'm a fairly regular dumpster diver. I'm borderline obsessive with the 5 R's..(renewing, reusing recycling, restoring, re-purposing....there's more...I bet you can come up with a few)? But... Having said that...would I live in a "small" place? I guess so...I'm guessing most would say I'm in a "small" home now. I recently (2015) downsized from a 3-2 to a 2-2 condo. Would I live "large" if i had more $$$? Don't think so. I love my AC bills under $100 most months (in Florida...that's the main Electricity bill generator). And I'm glad I moved from a high-ceiling place to a normal height one.

It won't until we get our family-planning act together, and get to a net Z.P.G.. Malthus said this over 200 years ago; "As the quantity of life increases, the quality of life decreases". It's been proven in scientific experiments; most notably John B. Calhoun's classic where he created dozens of populations of rats in moveable wall cages. He kept them well fed and clean...he just made the walls smaller at different rates...and some walls he made bigger or left unchanged - for comparison (we scientists call it a "control"). You can probably guess what he discovered; but read it for yourselves. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf

Give "induction" cooktops a try. You can buy a small "induction" cooktop for a single pot for less than $100. They're faster than gas. They don't get dangerously hot (they are basically tiny spinning magnets that heat up any steel or iron pan/pot) The down side is you can't use any aluminum cookware.

Cloudy, warm not raining (yet...but overcast)...waiting to hear from the furniture guy about picking up the oven and frige in the new Condo I bought. Will then order an Induction cooktop/oven and side-by-side refrigerator ice and water through the door. Getting excited about "fixing up" the place; the fellow who will "remove the Popcorn ceiling" and putting in ceiling fans is scheduled for Monday. Did 4 miles of biking in a half-hour...good workout. If anyone would like a nice place to stay for a week/month at a time; the Condo I bought will be ready to rent as of July 1. Basic costs will be $90 a night; week minimum stay, 85 a night if you do 30 days/month stay. Prices go up $10 bucks a night in November. It's a 2/1.5 townhouse (attached to other buildings on one side). It's inside a gated community, and right on a 9 hole walk-only golf course.. and the place comes well equipped; everything from a set of clubs to fishing poles, gear, and tennis rackets. And; it's a few hundred feet from the beach. Message me if you're interested. Google Ocean Village, Ft. Pierce, Florida.

You "offend" someone. They click on "Report". Then there's "snooze ____ for 30 days.... they/you can click that...the FB "gestapo" never questions them/you. Then there's "Block" and "hide" - which of course your upset FB "friend" clicks because he doesn't want you to know that (S)he was the one who falsely "reported" you in the first place. In my case - I'm almost sure I know who my "nemesis" is....a brother who's gone over to the "dark" side (is a #trumpster and #religulous) The point I'm making is...come chat here. Avoid FB. Their ads are increasingly annoying (no ads here) and the people there increasingly "offensive" and "easy to offend"... and will lie about you to get you off FB...or in FB jail...

pics 4, 5, and 9....such exquisite detail on the rock-work walls of the buildings. You won't find that everywhere. Stunning.
I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic.

Has anyone dated a narcissist? Breaking up might be freeing but still hurts.
Robecology comments on Jun 3, 2020:
Narcissism. So hard to define. So hard to say who is or isn't. Let's be careful here with labels...it's a kind of "pre-judgement" or prejudice on our part.... Here's an interesting read on the origin of the term, and the defining factors. Be careful about prejudice... https://10faq.com/health/narcissistic-personality-disorder-symptoms/?utm_source=google=2035932676=73045604798=73045604798=narcissism=Cj0KCQjwlN32BRCCARIsADZ-J4tN6jfI0Bqks7uh02c2mF32qdK4LgBoRTTPfLww1_q-jl2RZLVBDVYaApe1EALw_wcB
Hi how are you fellows. Long time no post. How are you especially the young adults like me.
Robecology comments on Jun 3, 2020:
Sorry; old dude here....but very impressed that we've got members in the Philippines! Half way around the world....12 time zones away from me here in Florida. It's 10:40 AM here...it must be 10:40 PM (give or take an hour) there. But kudos to you sir for signing on to Agnostic - from such a religious nation! ...and put a shirt on, young man!
It's Wednesday! That means we're funny today 😁
Robecology comments on Jun 3, 2020:
It's dreary here in East Florida - with lots of flooding weather on the way....and I'm still stuck indoors...but I have you folk (thank goodness!). Sea level rise? What about fresh water inundation... ...but I digress... ....here's memes of my favorites...

Happy Tuesday, Friends! What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?
Robecology comments on Jun 2, 2020:
Anyways. Simply put, “anyway” without an S is correct. But a lady friend who i care about uses it.. and she doesn't mount toilet paper the right way. Uggghhhh. (I know...I'm weird....not her). Always use it without the S. “Anyways” with the S is considered slang, and is a part of nonstandard, colloquial, or informal English. Furthermore, since “anyway” is an adverb and it is impossible for adverbs to be plural. https://www.gingersoftware.com/content/anyway-vs-anyways/
With all this shit swirling around, laughter really is the best medicine.

If you want fruit....pinch and prune on.a daily basis! The bushes will make a lot more fruit if you prune and pinch back the numerous sprouts. Watch, please! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPf7a96eOlQ
This person doesn't know that someone with the same exact photos tried to run a scam on me before.
Robecology comments on Jun 1, 2020:
What do you mean by "Run a scam"? ...I've had hotties (young ladies with provocative images) on Words With Friends (WWF) try to get me to buy "bitcoins" but that was it.
So how to do you react to a person's Facebook and other social media posts?
Robecology comments on Jun 1, 2020:
It depends on how deep you want to go. Remember FB - and even here...you are in "good company" based on the groups you choose to join; so you tend to join groups of folk with personalities similar to yours. I've tried joining Conservative or pro-Trump or pro-gun groups....they just either are uncomfortable with your POV at best...or will curse at you and threaten you for your comments at worst. Those who are not easy to get along with will block you - or you may end up blocking them.
I suspect there is far more of this than anyone knows.
Robecology comments on Jun 1, 2020:
As T. R. Malthus said, over 200 years ago...."As the quantity of life (in any given area) increases, the quality of life decreases"....and this was in 1812, over 200 years ago - when the world population was growing at 1000 more per day. Today it's 220,000 more, per day. J.T. Calhoun observed rats - kept clean, well fed and watered...just were more, or less crowded. His observations? The more crowded they were the more -aggressive - including senseless violence -asexual -greedy/hoarding -child neglecting/abusive -gang mentality - they were. Read for yourselves. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf
Everything is politicized - draining...
Robecology comments on Jun 1, 2020:
This whole issue was "triggered" by a clearly overly violent arrest....but the deeper underlying problem is complex; 1. We still accept and tolerate racism 2. The "greed" addiction is thriving, surviving, and still encouraged. 3. Family planning and population. control is largely being ignored; the connections between growth and social problems isn't being made.
Happy Monday Everybody. Today's question is: What “old person” things do you do?
Robecology comments on Jun 1, 2020:
You know you're getting old when you grunt when you get up or sit down, or move.....or do anything! I catch myself...as often as I can...but at 74...oh, well!
I know this is inappropriate for this site, but it's soothing and consoling nonetheless .
Robecology comments on May 31, 2020:
Joan was naive and religious in her younger days. Fortunately she became "aware' Quoting Ms. Baez in 2017; What’s the path forward for the left? Stepping up their rhetoric, for starters. “I think Trump kind of picked the scab off what’s been really ill down there for decades,” said Baez. “The right wing, conservative movement has spent 40 years in think tanks … planning for this to happen. And the liberals are just not smart enough to know how to talk. For instance, [Nancy] Pelosi, in [referencing] a bill democrats wanted passed, will say, ‘All we were asking is…’ You can’t say that. ‘We are demanding’ or ‘We are calling for.’ All we are asking’ — it ain’t gonna work. Part of it is about the language. And the conservative party, the really smart ones, are changing the language.”

Found a great old video by Bill Maher that speaks to the still common issue of police "excessiveness" June 2018; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTpkix7pgSA
I just have one simple question.
Robecology comments on May 31, 2020:
If you're a "conservative" and an Atheist then you're in a rare group. Conservatives hold "religion" to be a "pillar of democracy" -atheists obviously don't. Good luck....you'll need it!
Well this is my first attempt at posting something.
Robecology comments on May 31, 2020:
I'm glad you noticed that although it's in our website title - it's not an obsession. I just think that in general - Agnostics and atheists tend to be more reasonable. More logical. More scientific. More fact-based.
