Animal Intelligence

I am freaking out that this forum is still here. I am still here and Arcanum will not let me in with any variation of my usual password ... My cats know when I am coming home. They hear my car and they sit in the window and wait for me. They hear the sound of my car or else they can time my coming h...

Hanukkah (or HOWEVER you spell it) is relevant to many. Believing in a God is not a throwaway. Believing in a PERSONAL God is not a throwaway. Believing in a personal God with PERSONAL instructions to a unique people is not a throwaway. It's not just, lol, to be thrown in with the old traditional ha...

Cuuute, Flaming Ace. In spite of your sarcasm the poem has some worth. It may be a bit obvious for your scholarly tastes, but poetry is supposed to be communication. To communicate with everyone your metaphors have got to REACH everyone. These days, what does that mean? Ezra Pound and his kind are D...

Is this supposed to be me? I have never sued anybody in my life. As for my cats biting me , that's par for the course. I deal with cats biting me whenever I move or do something that terrifies them (like taking a feral one to the vet). I WISH I could sue somebody! I wish I would! I wish I had the ne...

Dogs Kill Cats

Once I knew a woman who played both sides of the fence -- she liked to rescue dogs and she liked to rescue cats. At any given moment she had a number of animals of both breeds sharing her house. That is, until one of her rescue dogs ripped a mother cat in pieces and killed her. Then she stopped resc...

Why Cats Paint -- IS THIS A HOAX?

What do you think? You've seen the books, the calendars, the website .... http://www.monpa.com/wcp/ Is it true? Are people REALLY paying hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars (one cat painting allegedly sold for 22K) for acrylic abstracts painted by .... CATS? I don't know what to think .... I...

Feral Cat BREAKTHROUGH!

This started happening on Saturday, and I am so happy that I am writing to every website I know to announce it. Maybe I am overreacting, but so what? Nefer, the cat that ripped my fingernail off and produced permanent scars in my dermis a year and a half ago, has suddenly decided that I am an OK hum...

I know, Doreen .... This is just a generic comment but ... if you have to delete yourself a lot, there's a problem ...there's a personal disconnect going on somewhere. I don't always remember what I've said --- that's the truth -- and sometimes I say things really strong -- another truth. But when I...

By the way, i just read through all that WD/ST conflict (what's left of it) and I too am unable to see how the disagreement started or what he said that provoked such a reaction -- but -- I assume a lot of it has been removed, too. I really don't have a problem with someone pulling off on a (related...

Doreen and Deb: What's so frickin "girly" about this website? Sorry, I was actually referring to the other website, not this one. I should have made that more clear. Also, I retract the word "girly." It's insulting to women and I used it in a way that implied that women don't debate, and that's tot...

Doreen, I will give it up: you ARE a dictator, but a benevolent one. That works for me, and it's honest as well. Yes, I've noticed that you think your replies through very carefully at AC. You've really bent over backwards to comply with their written rules, to the T. That's why I will take it very ...

P.S. -- Fair warning, Stilltrucking, I can be very inconsistent, within certain parameters about the degree of personalization I think God is capable of. Just depends on my mood. Too much reading about Hitler is not putting me in a good mood .... lol.

Money is a human invention and yeah, "People make people evil." Deb, There are people who have survived, and live and talking right now, who have gone through some of the most horrid things other humans have created in this world. And others doing that now - as I type this. They survived/they're sur...

Your parallels are good, Michael -- just coming to the end of Toland's biography of Hitler and the tactics Hitler used have definitely been repeated by Bush -- with very similar success. It struck me forcibly when reading about the Reichstag Fire. and Hitler's popularity rose dramatically after he i...

See my thread above, also posted in the Fireplace. It has to do with the differences between having a conversation with someone compared to having a debate with them. It's that 'challenge' factor. Well, there's this old quote: "Debate is masculine; conversation is feminine." Amos Bronson Alcott Conc...
