Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.

-- Henry David Thoreau

“Socrates: Have you noticed on our journey how often the citizens of this new land remind each other it is a free country? Plato: I have, and think it odd they do this. Socrates: How so, Plato? Plato: It is like reminding a baker he is a baker, or a sculptor he is a sculptor. Socrates: You mean to say if someone is convinced of their trade, they have no need to be reminded. Plato: That is correct. Socrates: I agree. If these citizens were convinced of their freedom, they would not need reminders.”

“It’s an artist’s right to rebel against the world’s stupidity.”

― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

I did say it was just getting interesting.

I'm a fan of Odin's and Renneye's. And just to keep it interesting, I'll tell you that I just stepped outside for a breath of fresh air, and tripped over the handles of the wheelbarrow that I parked just outside when a storm came through and dumped a heap of rain. Both my boots are now saturated, and I feel kinda stoopid, knowing that I was the one who parked that barrow where I did.

Welcome to the forum, and a happy Ishtar to you, your wife and children, from sometimes sunny Queensland.

After nine years of drought, we've had three years of very wet Summers. I love me a good storm.

I did two monsoon seasons in the west Kimberleys. Home of the sudden Summer storm.

Leaves the air feeling electrified.

Nice analogy.

Life springs eternal. Don't ask me who said that.

We are heading into Autumn, and I'm heading south for the Winter.

Tasmania beckons, like a long-lost Uncle, telling me the trout are sweeter.

You're not alone. Stick around. It can take a lot of convincing...but even the hard heads around here end up seeing the light eventually. ~.^

Please dont stop posting LMG.

Its sickening that these comments got deleted. There was nothing in these comments that broke any rules. Actually, they had some pretty brilliant writing. Sad.

Looks like they were removed by the author. I think that it would say removed had they been removed by the moderators.

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3874) 7 years ago

You're right, GF. Looks like 'LittleMatchGirl' removed the posts. What a shame.

On the upside is the fact that the moderators weren't the ones who deleted for no good reason. I was concerned about that. Thanks again, GF.

Strange indeed.

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3874) 7 years ago

Uh-huh...I PMed LMG. Said (s)he wasn't able to follow up, so thought (s)he'd leave. I liked what LMG had to say. Some of the good ones just go, I guess.

There's only a few of us left. Don't even think about leaving, Builder. It just wouldn't be the same.

Well thanks Renneye. I like to read your posts as well.

I don't always respond, but I do take in a lot of info.

I've mentioned a few times that what happens here on a daily basis is not always a good look for a nooby to take in, but what's a poor boy to do?

We all have different ways of expressing ourselves, and compared to back when there were dozens of trolls messing up the place, things are comparitively saner by a long shot, so I've done with complaining.

Back to researching.

That's a great attitude you've got going there, Builder...and, thanks. I take it all in too.

Is she cool or what? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Z4f2_Vznx4

Pink is always a sellout concert here in Oz.

Pretty sure she put on some extra concerts on her last time here to cater for the fans. She's quite the people's poet as well.

What did she say? i did not get to read the post before she deleted them.

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3874) 7 years ago

Hmmmm...possibly. Thanks GF. It would be a relief to know that the moderators didn't do it. I'm going to PM 'LittleMatchGirl' and see if I can find out.
