Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Having just read Verdun's last post, I don't think that " ... being judgemental, insincere and pharisee-like ... " is restricted to people of faith or those of none ... sadly. 

I have known Humanists who seemed to be competing to be the most inhumane people in existence

The bible says 'Judge not that ye be not judged' ... not a bad creed for everyone, Christian or not.

BL ((hugs)) Don't think its 'cos they're worse than everyone else - it's 'cos some wear the label, but don't do what it says on the tin - that makes it seem worse  

But many people are good and kind and go the extra mile.  Whether they do it because of their faith or because of their love for the rest of humanity, or both ... that's up to them ... it's much appreciated whatever the reason ... it's what makes the world bearable.

Birdyboots   there's a song by the band Travis which goes 'Why does it always rain on me?  Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?'

As it almost always starts raining when OH gets his bike out of the garage, it's his theme song.

Think 'our' hedgehogs are hibernating now Pat - probably snuggled up in the dry leaves under the rear neighbours' huge hedges.    Great photo - think that Joey needs to give his mum a break and use his own legs!

Think I'll stick to sausage rolls

Maybe if we want to talk religion/Christmas etc it should have it's own thread?  Don't want to wander too far from the reason KEF started this one

Good morning all  G'day Pat - I expect you're about

Dark and damp out there this morning.  Apparently it's going to start getting a little cooler. 

That was kind of your OH Fidget  

My car is covered with dings from car parks, but the only time I saw it happen was when I was in the car park stationary in a queue of traffic when a chap in a car reversed out of his parking space into the rear wheel of my car  - apparently I hadn't been there when he looked - that must've been a good two or three minutes before he reversed ! 

When I said it was a good job there wasn't a pedestrian walking past his car he said that he'd have seen a pedestrian!  What, and he didn't see a damn Renault Megane??? 

Fortunately for him his bumper hit my wheel and despite really rocking the car it didn't do any damage - don't think he'll forget doing it in a hurry - he looked pretty sheepish when I'd finished with him.

I find that most dings seem to be the height of the bottom corner of the door of a 4WD-type car - think it's children flinging the door open - nowadays I try to park as far away from other cars as possible. 

Once when I was driving home from work a child flung a car door open just as I passed - although I was only doing about 20mph (narrow residential road with humps) it took off most of the side of my little Micra  

The car owner/driver explained that it wasn't her fault because it wasn't her child - she'd been picking up her boss's child from school and dropping him off at the hair salon where she worked. 

The nice policeman explained slowly and patiently whose responsibility it was
