Kentucky Grilled Chicken
Posted: 5/18/2009 1:26:38 AM
I saw a show tonight on TLC and it talked about how our society has become one which is so lazy and populated with over 2 million people who hare super morbidly obese. One of the reasons, how easy it is to buy cheaply priced fast food instead of cooking a nutritious meal at home. Sorry, but I'm still one who'd rather cook at home then go through a fast food line...

I will NOT touch KFC. And it isn't "Grilled" it is baked and still fried. Sorry. NOT healthy for ya at all.

Do any of ya remember the days when they used to have the bottles of honey on the tables? Back before all the "packets" came out...

Farrah Fawcett's Cancer
Posted: 5/18/2009 1:02:11 AM
I watched the T.V. special this past Friday and I'm in a way thankful that Farrah did do this and helped to bring to light her battle with cancer, how she's still fighting...
It also made me sad, because my dad didn't even have the chance to fight, his battle was already lost before his diagnosis. But as someone who's been in the hospice field for a number of years you need to have compassion and empathy. One of the most difficult choices in life is to choose death....

WHY ARE WOMEN OVER 30 A FAILURE WHEN THEY ARE SINGLE AND CHILDLESS?
Posted: 3/27/2009 4:06:34 PM

Over 30, never married, no kids = psycho


Excuse me? I am hopin you just posted this to get a reaction and do not honestly believe this. Or did you just post this because you had an unfortunate experience?

Seriously though, to the OP, I am over 30, single, and childless but I sure as H*** am NOT a failure. I am my own person, believe in myself, and willing to learn a little more about life each day. As my profile says, ya don't like it you don't need to be around me...

Movies Worth Seeing - New Pics
Posted: 3/27/2009 3:25:16 PM

"TAKING CHANCE"......True story about this Marine officer that volunteers to escort a young PFC's body home to his family, simply tells an amazing story that anyone regardless of there political belifes will appreciate.......HBO simply rock's with the "QUALITY" programming they put out.


I have also seen this movie. I am involved with an oganization called Soldiers Angels (www.soldiersangels.org) Sorry for postin the link but this org does a lot for our SOLDIERS. I pretty much sat with tears fallin through this whole movie. I never realized, or I should say I never knew what the process was that our military took in the care of a fallen soldier. This story was done with respect, honor, and showed this is the way it is with no artificial drama....

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH COUNTRY MUSIC?
Posted: 3/26/2009 9:51:01 PM
What is the problem with CM in todays day and age?
How about the commercialism? It seems that's pretty much all the labels look at and it really hurts the artists who have that unique vocal talent, those artists who write songs that make you think (Johnny Cash-Drive On) or touch the heart (Keith Whitley-Don't Close Your Eyes) or just plain make you laugh.(David Allen Coe-You Never Even Called Me by My Name)

CM is also changin, becomin a different style then the classic country. It's more crossin country with pop rock. Look at the pop rockers (Kelly Clarkston/Miley Cyrus) who are tryin country style songs.

I've been a supporter/fan/friend of a young country artist for the last three years now and he's got the talent, artistry, and writing skills of the classic country style. I think it's one of the reasons he's on such a slow progress of becomin a "big star" of country music TV/radio but has spent more time on the Grand Old Opry than any other new artist of his age. Ya'll are probably wonderin ok, what's his name already. His name is Chris Young. If you go to MySpace and search for him you'll find his page and can listen to his newest single "Gettin You Home" which has been out for six weeks and is already at #44 on the R&R charts

To me, this is what CM is about....

Off soap box....

Would you enter into a relationship with a person in Recovery?
Posted: 10/18/2008 7:44:04 PM
Ya'll are talkin about if you would enter a relationship with a person in "recovery" or not. Well here's a little perspective from someone in "recovery" and how they feel about dating ya'll so called "normal" people....

I'm a compulsive gambler, been attending GA for a year and a half and have a little over a year of sobriety. It is true we are discouraged from making any big changes in our lives for the first few years of our recovery and startin a serious relationship is a big change.

The people we meet at these meetings and see each week become like family. They help us when we have our moments of weakness and have our hand on the doorknob wanting to open it and walk back into our addiction. They understand what we are going through, because they have been there themselves.

This is the issue when it comes to dating. It is the understanding of the addiction, the possible relapse, and seeing that the need to attend meetings is just a small part of us keeping our sobriety as we work our program.

This is a big part of who we are and when we do date someone who is not an addict, we do take this in to consideration because when we date we look for people who are strong, caring, independent, and understanding individuals.
Why? Because a person needs to be strong for themselves, caring to our battle at addiction, independent because we do not want to have them in our lives just because and end up with a co-dependent relationship, and finally understanding because we would like them to understand our addiction because it would make the relationship stronger but it is their choice to do so.

Maybe this question should be reversed? What about a person in recovery entering into a relationship?

For me, if the person is not able to understand or at least willing to attempt to understand what my addiction is about or see that each day I work hard to maintain my sobriety by working my program then they are not the person for me....

Just my thoughts...

Is it me or the profile?....
Posted: 10/18/2008 6:45:35 PM
Ok, so I am wondering if it is me or if it is my profile. So, I am putting in a request here to have my profile reviewed and see what ya'll think of it. I have tried to keep it short while at the same time expressing in words who I am as a person. I've added pictures so there's a visual to go along with what is written.

So the question is, is it me or the words that I have written?

Would you date someone on antidepressants?
Posted: 7/7/2008 3:13:36 PM
And as afew others have said - those that are activly on anti-depressants are usually in a state of mind that they "want" to be happier people. Meds is only 20 - 30% affective according to msot docters - the rest is up to the will and desire of the person.


This is very true. Meds are only a small part of the whole picture. Please realize that I am speakin from personal experience here, but over the years I've learned I need to listen to my body and what it is saying to me as to what's wrong. Ya know that little voice we all have. A lot of recovery from mental illness (depression, bi polar) is self motivation and finding inner strength. It's not easy to do, especially when you hit the rough times.

Dating can and is filled with with a lot of pitfalls and land mines. The one good thing about them is when you make it through them you find yourself a stronger and wiser person. It's sad that some do not realize this and see only the mental illness "label" and choose not to date you because of this. The flip side of the coin though is when you do begin dating someone and they realize the inner strength you have because of all you have struggled through, and you continue to do so, you know your life has become blessed.

*Edited to add this post is for the question relating to those on antidepresants used for mental illness.

Why do people waste time chatting online and email, before meeting?
Posted: 7/7/2008 2:47:02 PM
I do not feel it's a waste of time. You can actually pick up a lot from writing to someone and talking before meeting, if you know how to read between the lines.
Granted I realize it is very easy to mislead people on-line but it is also to do so meeting in person.

I've also thought there are two types of sparks between people. The first how they are when they speak when "meetin" on-line and then when meetin in person.
Bottom line (for me anyways) I like gettin the chance to talk before meetin in person. Allows me to find out if we are able to converse with one another and have that spark and then when we meet if there's the physical spark as well.

I'd give ya a dime for my time but I'm sure I'd get two cents in change...lol..

what's wrong with saying thanks but no thanks
Posted: 7/7/2008 2:38:55 PM
It is best to respond to any communication you may get, but if there's no interest and you want to say "Thanks, but no thanks..." please do it in a nice way.
Bottom line, think of how you would want an e-mail to read if you were to get a response of a "Thanks, but no thanks..." e-mail.

I had hoped some would comment to let me know their thoughts. We all need a little of that old boost to let us know we're on the right track...

I had also hoped others who have suffered the "Locked Door" syndrome would post. As someone who has had the writter's block "bug" bite me I realize how difficult it is to pick up that pen and begin again to put those words to paper.

*Reason for edit: Encouragement to all that you never lose your creativeness, it does become paralized but it is not permanent. As with any injury it takes time to rehabilitate and with hard work it returns even stronger than before...

Is Intelligence A Curse In Relationships?
Posted: 7/6/2008 11:20:51 PM

I'm going to set myself up for a good bashing here,...but here goes:
"Ignorance is curable. Stupidity is not." (from a bumper sticker I used to have on my road box)
OK..That was my intellectual snobbery leaking out; but it is totally true.

For OP if you are questionin your relationship like this, maybe you should speak with her about how you feel instead of here on this forum. You may find opinions but you will not find answers. Only you and your mate will be able to answer your question...

Had many a times I'd be asked the question "If you could change anythin from your past would you and what would it be..."

I'd always say no, because I would always thank God for those experiences because they helped to make me who I am...

**To date this is just one of my favorite songs by Chris Young which he's recorded. My heart and soul lies in doin promotional work for him and granted there's no monitary pay involved but the pay is seein people appreciate and recognize his music. He's a talented vocalist and writer. I'm very proud to say his summer tour is kickin off this Friday, he will be openin for Jack Ingram and Martina McBride.

If any of you would like to hear this song, for free, you can go to myspace and search for Chris Young. (know we're not supposed to put up weblinks)

Mandrake's House by the Fire
Posted: 7/6/2008 12:12:30 AM
Thank you Mandrake. Like I said it has been awhile since I have been able to write. I've had so many other things to deal with in my personal life.

I always say everything happens for a reason even though we may not understand the reasoning... It was just by chance I choose to click on the poet's forum and now I feel blessed to have done so. I pray the tragic events of these last few years will actually inspire more soulful writings.

Thank you again for such a warm welcome. I leave you with one more poem I have...

Deep inside I feel the stir waking me from a sound slumber. Knowing there will be no rest till these thoughts are wirtten with pen to paper. The letters forming feelings flow so fast from my fingers. Thoughts of love, dreams of hope. Wishing what was said, praying that some day it will be read.

Just a little no name in all this cyber space, but yet I have still carved my own little place. For I do have the heart of a poet, but till this night just did not know it. Maybe just deep down now wanting to show it. Thoughts explode from my soul, filling my mind. Wanting so to be set free. To be loved, embraced, just willing to grow to the light, wishing to be seen.

I hope that you see, that for me, it has been there form the start. I honestly do have a poets heart...

Good night everyone!

Ok ya'll it's been awhile so please be kind...lol... The squeaky hinges have been oiled and now the wheels are turnin...

How do I find the words that I want to say
to let you know what is in my heart
on this glorious summer day...

Letting them drift up from my soul
feeling them grow so steady and strong
letting them out, letting them go...

Like a flower that has bloomed
taking away the darkness
the sadness and gloom

Lettin the tears cascade down
fiving life and joy
waskig away the pain
as they melt into the ground...

The smile and twinkle that shines from my eyes
seeing the clouds turn to rainbows
as the paint their way across the bright blue skies...

Finding the words is easy you see
but saying them aloud,
that is what is hard for me...

SO I give you this poem with words from my mind
hoping and praying that you will see
that what I would speak to you
are feelings so sweet, gentle, and kind...

Parents who live with you, is it a turn off?
Posted: 7/5/2008 9:07:42 PM
OP I went through this with my own mom for about four years. I'd always had a very rocky relationship with her, but she was my mom and I still loved her.
Here's a flip side to the coin.

It did make dating difficult, mainly because she was afraid that if I found someone who would continue to care for her. So she was a real "B-word" when the person I would be dating would come to the house or when I would be in a relationship. Lets just say I only had a few during the four years I cared for her.

The last summer she lived with me I was workin six days a week with one night I could go and have time to myself (stock car racing-worked the pit crew) which was an hour and a half drive away and would spend the night. She began makin threats to do destruction to the house which ended the one night away which escalated to me bein woken up one night to her crashin into my room with a knife tellin me she couldn't take it anymore and to get out.

Bottom line is if you do have family live with you, make sure to set bounderies, that each still have a life to live, and be reassuring that even though these have been set you still care.

It's not easy to care for an ailing parent/s on your own, trust me. Make sure you have an outlet for your own stress because there will be stress, for you and for the parent/s because both are giving up a little independence.

Locked Door Reopened...
Posted: 7/5/2008 3:19:38 AM
I want to thank all of the talented and creative writers here in this forum. It has been a few years since I have been able to find my way back to writing. I guess you could say I had writers block.
The one good thing so far about POF has been the forums. It has provided the key to unlock the door in my mind which has held my creative writing skills hostage. Granted at the moment all I am hearing are squeaky hinges but at least it is something...

Here is a small sampling of what I have written in the past. All are protected under copywrite.

~Dadd's Little Girl~

Not fo your flesh and bone
but some how some way,
you took me as your own.
Sharing, caring, and nurturing
with all the love possilbe,
some how some way. ever have given.

As I grew,
some how, some way,
you just knew.
The words I spoke of hate,
knowing in my heart,
it was just fate.
Your love always there,
it was just me, would not see,
that you really cared.

The years lost,
never again to be seen,
and all for what?

I am grown now,
with love from family and friends,
and one very special man,
just not knowing why or how.
And now in a new light, I hope you see,
how all my hopes and dreams,
have taken flight.

I write this as tears fall,
knowing soon, maybe not now,
that the Lord will call,
not just for you, but for all.

I love you so very much,
and will always and forever know,
not expressed by your words,
but by all of your thoughts of me,
showing how much you care,
and that you love me very, very much.
(c) 1998 S.A. Blondeau

~Love is Alive~

When the air is filled with song,
knowing that nothing could,
or ever will go wrong...

When the sound of a child's laugh,
fills your heart with joy and hope,
wondering what road they will take,
praying that for them, it's life's path...

Seeing an old woman and man,
walking a deserted beach,
in the glow of the moon,
fingers entwinded, hand in hand...

Seeing the love and wanting your fill,
praying some day you will find it,
but yet so scared to death that you will...

Love will always be alive,
it's what makes the heart flutter,
the soul grow,
the spirit rise,
and the fire spark in the eyes...
(c) S.A. Blondeau 1999

~A Single Tear~

From the birth of a child,
a beautiful daughter,
to your first son,
bringing a smile.

To the pain and greif of loss,
covering your heart,
with a bitter cold frost.

It forms fromt he sould and heart,
rising to the eyes,
where the long fall will start.

Down the bodies cheek,
of man, woman, and child,
being soft and smoothe,
to wrinkled and old,
it chokes you up,
leaving you with no voice to speak.

As this single tear falls,
you see it as a gift,
from the Lord our God,
knowing that He,
is making all the calls.

For it is many signs,
either of peace, joy, or sorrow,
when you feel,
the tears slide from your eyes.

I hope that this poem has helped to ease your mind,
for it was written witht houghts of all,
so strong, gentle, and kind.

~Touching from a Distance~

A shiver runs through my body, I feel your touch, though we are half a world apart. How you are able to send your gentle caress across the miles, I do not know. I feel your warm lips on my skin, even though you are not beside me I still have to grin. I close my eyes and picture in my mind, the look of love being sent from your eyes to mine. As you softly whisper in my ear, these simple words that have traveled the distance. They are not just spoken, but come from your heart, your soul, a part of you that now has awoken, As my eyes are closed, I picture in my mind a beach for two, just me and you. The sky ablaze with reds, pinks, violets and blues. As the sun sets, it is a moving picture, enjoyed by two bodies but felt by just one soul. Even distance can not hamper the love that is felt. Some day, some day soon, we will see each other. If not now within our hearts, soul and mind, but then on the sands that determine the right time. I still feel your touch, and I know that I love you very, very much.

Again thank you all for being the oil to grease those squeaky hinges...

~Voices~
By Chris Young

You can say I’m a little bit crazy
You can call me insane
Walking round with all these whispers
Runnin’ round here in my brain
I just can’t help but hear ‘em
Man I can’t avoid it
I hear voices, I hear voices like

My dad sayin’ work that job
But don’t work your life away
And mama telling me to
Drop some cash in the offering plate on Sunday
And granddad sayin you can have a few
But don’t every cross that line
Yeah I hear voices all the time

Turns out I’m pretty dang lucky
For all that good advice
Those hard to find words of wisdom
Hold up here in my mind
And just when I’ve lost my way
Or I’ve got too many choices
I hear voices, I hear voices like

My dad sayin’ quit that team
And you’ll be a quitter for the rest of your life
And mama telling me to
Say a prayer every time I lay down at night
And grandma saying if you find the one
You better treat her right
Yeah I hear voices all the time

Sometimes I try to ignore ‘em
But I thank God for ‘em
Cause they made me who I am


My dad sayin’ work that job
But don’t work your life away
And mama telling me to
Drop some cash in the offering plate on Sunday
And granddad sayin you can have a few
But don’t every cross that line

Yeah I hear voices all the time
Yeah I hear voices all the time
All the time

Cave man days, bring'em back
Posted: 7/4/2008 11:58:26 PM

And rants and raves may attract them as well....

Like the implication that we as men, dont measure up intellectually to YOU... hmmmm

dont like it? dont read!

Or do you make it a practice to threaten...??


Listen Smuggler1 I didn't start this, YOU did. I simply made a comment concerning "cavemen" which technically died out millions of years ago. YOU are the one who chose to make a personal attack on me, not the other way around.
Let me remind you what I said in my original post, "Sorry cave man, but I just don't think you'd have the intelligence to handle this Amazon" and you are the one who chose to comment and take it out of context. You chose to point a finger at me which in turn caused ten to be pointed directly back at you.

So again, continue to freely post as you wish. I'll gladly keep track of the posts you've made towards me (personal attack and now YOUR baiting threats) with message numbers and forward them on to the moderators.

Have a good night.

If you're single and not dating, what's your reason?
Posted: 7/4/2008 11:00:13 PM

Not about the person who posted before me........ i looked at 10 peoples profiles who posted on this and said they weren't dating, but only one had that in their profile, the other 9 random profiles all said they were looking for someone to date, ltr, etc...???


I have a feelin there may be a misunderstandin of how the topic title is being read. There's two ways it can be looked at. A self-imposed reason and reasoning being there just are either a) men not avaliable to date or b) they women/men have chosen not to date at all.

Make sense to you now caskey?

Looks Fade So Why Not Look At Who A Person Really Is.
Posted: 7/4/2008 4:38:29 PM
Ok, little bit of devil's advicate here...
What about people who go by what people post here on the forums?

I have found it to be a better way to get to know someone than their profiles. If you really think about it when you sit down to write your profile you have a blank slate and you need to come up with your own words.
When you write here in the forums you are responding to questions or bantering with other posters and your personality comes out better than anything you could possibly write in your profile.
The reason, when people reply to a post they're not tryin to attract a potential date. They are expressing their thoughts or opinions.
Seriously, check it out sometime when you read a post and get a chuckle or get ticked off by the poster, go and read their profile. Bet it doesn't match up...

guy off to iraq
Posted: 7/4/2008 4:25:04 PM

It's a shame you are so narrow minded. I've been to Iraq and the other wonderful parts of the middle east many times, and am heading back there myself soon. Better for him to find out you are unsupportive of him now than later after the relationship gets more serious. Having somebody worth coming back to makes the time over there go much easier.


elyguy:
I know this is OT but...
I would loved to have sent you an e-mail, but your profile settings would not allow me (distance settings) just to let you know how thankful I am of what you are doing and how proud I would be to have a friend like you.

As for OP it is sad that you would allow distance to interfere with a possible relationship. It also sounds like you may have trust issues. The gentleman you are dating is doing his job and sometimes jobs require travel. Would you be questioning the relationship if he was an OTR truck driver or is it because he is going to Iraq? Ya it's scary for someone you care about to go to Iraq because there's the possibility they may not come back but it's the same with any job. You could leave one day for work and be killed driving to work or have some crazed person come in and shoot the place up. Life's not about the chances we lost but about the chances we are blessed to have taken....

It's been a year and a half since I dated or been in a relationship (also means no sex for that length of time..lol..) but this year has given me time to figure out a lot about me.
I know you hear about people saying they have had to take time for themselves, but ya know it is nice to actually take that time. It gave me the chance to figure out what I wanted in life, work to rebuild a better relationship with my mom, and other stuff.
Bottom line, I was able to "get my ducks in a row" and now I feel more confident about dating.

The problem now is finding the right person to date and build a relationship with...lol...

Person puts first name at end of email?
Posted: 7/4/2008 4:00:33 PM
For me signing "Brat" is just how I do things here on-line. My on-line friends just know me as that. Now friends and family off-line know me by my given name. I think once I become comfortable with someone I am e-mailing with then yes, I would probably say Oh, by the way my name is... but then still sign my e-mails as "Brat" just because it is habit and because it's my nickname.
And yes, I have truly earned that nickname over the years...

Are there ANY women who don't CHEAT?
Posted: 7/4/2008 3:51:46 PM
Yes, there is, right here. I have two rules when dating a man and I expect they to go both ways. No hitting and no cheating. IF a man were to every hit me in anger or if he cheats then that's the end of the relationship, PERIOD!

* I'd never hit ANYONE because I have a fuse a mile long and cheating is just disrespectful.
