Hi SiWolke
The replies, well some, have degenerated into the above condescending, patronising and sexist thoughts. Add to that Ben Framed evangelical rants you may wonder why i only now lurk on coffee house! :smile:

CIDER we meet at last!!! I've read your work for a year and a half or so - well done!

You had me laughing on this one from the first moment! Here's why:

For several days now, I've gone to bed with questions here answered, only to wake and find a whole new line of questions, often with quotes, and supporting documents, but always from a new angle. It occurred to me [finally] that people must be seeking help from a 3rd party in the off hours. Well, I says to myself "what will they do when the discussions have been answered, the talking points have run out, and they don't like the answers?" (as must happen when facts outweigh wishes) ... so I thought thru "the playbook" that I've learned - and here was the answer that hit me ... "Their gonna call me a racist" [shrug]. (Anyone who knows me would laugh at that). So I realized that the discussions would be considered "lost" by those people, when that word came out - so I've been expecting it ...

... but you threw me a curve-ball and called me "Sexist" instead! Hahaha! Good one!  :cool: :cool: :cool:

Hey - your profile doesn't show a location ... where do.you keep bees?

Thanks

If you were replying to KathyP would you refer to her as "No dearest, not even close. What all of us are trying to tell you is that the recipe for socialism is missing an ingredient - it fails to account for the drive of the human spirit. It's not fear we have darling, it's knowledge we have" in such a patronising way undoubtly metaphorically patting her on the head at the same time?

PS Maybe I should replace "Lurk" with"Browse the Coffee House" so as not to give the wrong impression :smile:

What's good for bees is usually good for mankind. Doesn't that mean sharing?

"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be, as long as you elect sane politicians who are not embarrassed about their hair" with apologies to SS

I have been called worse than "dearest" so if someone called me that I'd consider it a step up...actually, an entire escalator up!!   :cheesy:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

[Chuckles] ...

No worries - I "lurked" here for a year or more before deciding to join, so as to ask some questions, and get some help with me bees. As a side note: of all the bee forums I found and read - this one is by far the best - best people, most knowledge shared, easiest to navigate, etc.

Cider - I've seen you throw out a lot of [less that professional] comments here, but I have an honest question for you .... how do you believe things should be in this world? Is that open for discussion? Will you provide your opinions? In your view, what should the system of government look like, if you "had your way" so to speak?

Thanks

OK, Cider, and Ben Framed, nobody here can be called names other than Iddee. I have been called so many I don't think anyone can find a new one, but all other members are off limits.

Ha ha 😁  I wonder where your buddy Cider has went off to, Cool 😎 ask him a good question. Maybe in the haystack fast asleep 😴.

PS Cider is a pretty good sport, I bet he liked it! 😁

? :smile: and even more???  I suppose Ben Framed does seem to get a bit unhinged at times, but its like water off a ducks back.....and presumably for him also. Otherwise he would not frequent this place, but then again he may just want to convert us all? I'm afraid you know as far as religion is concerned I'm a lost cause! :wink:

Thanks for the kind words Cider. I do enjoy coming here reading the post, the debates, between you, iddee, and Ace, others as well.  Sometimes I get so tickled that I truly laugh out loud!  As far as you and your salvation, I can't convert you, that comes from the conviction and power of the Spirit of God, if he calls you, you will know it in your heart.  But  let me add Cider, I will never give up on you, I want to see you walking the streets of gold for all eternity!

What's with the "Ah haa haa haa" it's getting to look a bit childish don't you think? Wouldn't want you to start looking like iddee :cheesy:

You goofed again, Ben. That's a scorpion, not a crab.   :shocked:
Crabs, "at least the salt water kind", are desirable. Scorpions aren't. That's why he chose the scorpion.
He's more compatible with the scorpion and the other kind of crab.   :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:
