I live in The Middle of Nowhere, Australia. I share my little piece of the Earth with one extraordinarily patient female of my species and a mini zoo consisting of Shetland ponies, alpacas, sheep, goats, a dog and a variable population of feral cats, rabbits, possums, rats, mice, snakes, spiders and other assorted critters (still working on the partridge in a pear tree).

In my spare time, I like moonlit walks on the beach, candlelit dinners and avoiding cliches.

I don't generally bite (much), so please feel free to say hi any time you feel like it.

CD Richards: A seasonal warning:

Don't buy your children war-based toys for Christmas, or crappy, violent TV series on DVD. These things turn their impressionable brains to porridge.

And please keep the kiddies away from deranged cults.

Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas.

    Carlos' girl: cults like fanstory ? lol

CD Richards: Because I'm not a brainwashed juvenile, I'm not going to wish anyone dead. But I really would like to see some people prevented from breeding.

The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years without brains gives hope to many people.

CD Richards: Two tips for Christmas:

1. Forget the past -- you can't change it.
2. Forget the present -- I didn't get you one.

CD Richards: Scientists have recently discovered yet another mysterious substance permeating the cosmos. In addition to anti-matter and dark-matter, there is now doesn't-matter. Apparently, it has no effect on the universe whatsoever.

CD Richards: "Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one."

-Benjamin Franklin

Here's a thought, based on the wisdom of good old Ben:

If money is all you can focus on; if the acquisition of it defines all your goals; if the possession of it representss who you are; if you think any person of substance will respect you, or be impressed because you never stop talking about how much you have... perhaps you need to ask yourself, "What's missing?"

    Jesse James Doty: Very wise thoughts and question. Thank you for keeping it brief and onto the subject.

CD Richards: Here's a tip for novices: If you want to make a political rant, or you want to indulge in pompous, egotistical criticism of those who use the political forum according to the purpose it was provided for, have the courage to speak your mind in the area designated for it. And don't hide behind your ability to block responses as you can in profile comments. What are you afraid of?

Don't place long-winded, nonsensical rants in the profile thoughts area so everyone has to wade through it to get to anything relevant of general interest. The political forum was reintroduced for a reason -- to keep that sort of drivel out of the Profile Thoughts.

    jlsavell: Why was this removed from the listing of Profile Thoughts?

    Eve Lovell: This was blocked because it was a personal attack. It basically says, come out and fight you coward. I am not one to rush to speak as you lot are, firing on all pistons all the time, lol

    You had your chance, now who's the coward. hahahhaahah? If ever I doubted my ancestors wisdom in the need for prayer to rid the world of losers...I don't doubt anymore since coming to FS.

    Too funny!! My brother would run rings around you in a heartbeart.

CD Richards: 250,000 (and counting) people in one country alone are ready to testify that it doesn't matter diddley-squat how much money you've got, when you're too dead to spend it.

So, next time you feel inclined to give thanks to the one who may or may not have put an extra 50 cents in your piggy bank, spare a thought for the quarter of a million now deceased people to whom that same person said "we have five cases", and "it will be gone in a week" and "it's just like the 'flu." The one who, by his own admission, lied to his citizens and told them everything would be fine.

By the time this post has been here a day, should it last that long, more than 1,000 more US citizens will be dead. No, Trump didn't introduce the virus to the US. But he did insult, vilify, ridicule and threaten those who took it seriously. And he incited millions to do the same.

Best President ever!

    mrsmajor: Even one of those poor souls, would be glad to drink a glass of water, and turn their backs on a Thanksgiving dinner...Just to open one's eyes each morning is a Blessings...Yes Indeed It's only the very sad...
    November 21, 2020 at 9:30PM
    CD Richards: Absolutely, Victoria. Do you remember when certain people were making nothing of it, saying things like, "The flu has killed 6,000 in a single year?" I do.
    November 21, 2020 at 9:40PM
    Colin John: I totally agree with you Eve Lovell, you were spot on lol.
    November 22, 2020 at 9:33AM
    CD Richards: Colin John: I never doubted for a second you would. I'd have put money on it. Unfortunately, that's all I'm allowed to say.

CD Richards: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. -- 1 Timothy 6:10

CD Richards: Great news everyone. Not sure if you heard, but there were devastating storms here yesterday. But praise be, our summer residence completely escaped damage. Had to get the leaf blower out to clean the tennis court, but that's nothing when our neighbours (the closest ones, two miles away) had their house gutted by the winds. Thankfully our fleet of Bentley automobiles survived without a scratch, as did the yacht.

She is indeed gracious and merciful in sparing us and our bank account, when death and destruction rained down everywhere. What more do infidels need to convince them that She is great and I am rich?

    September 7, 2020 at 8:14AM
    CD Richards: Great to see you too, Victoria. I've missed your voice around here.
    September 7, 2020 at 8:29AM
    mrsmajor: I miss you too, Craig, I enjoyed your mindset...See you at the my Virtual Tea party, remember now it's on my sunny I haven't forgotten...Hugs!

CD Richards: Public service announcement:

Would the law enforcement officials who repeatedly insist on strangling innocent, unarmed citizens to death please refrain from doing so. Such intimate contact could lead to the soon-to-be deceased person contracting COVID-19. It would be appreciated if you could just return to shooting them from a safe distance, as normal.

Additionally, please refrain from attacking and assaulting local and foreign journalists who inconsiderately report these human rights abuses.

Make America Sane Again. Thank you.

    Colin John: Please, seems like its only Trump and most Republicans who want to try to stop all this nonsense, hopefully the few Democrats I have heard and have not yet had a brain freeze will get behind him.
    August 13, 2020 at 5:55PM
    mrsmajor: Interesting, Colin, although this isn't the political site, let me just say this...It might be a good idea if trump would stop sending his storm troopers in the middle of the peaceful protestors, something that all Americans have the constitutional right to do, and just deal with the criminals...the older fellow wasn't acting in any dangerous way, yet was beaten, gassed and hospitalized gassed...It seems to me it's trump, and his supporters that appear to be out of step to me...and no I'm neither a Democrat, Independent, or Republican...Just an American that disagrees with you..
    August 14, 2020 at 11:54AM
    Colin John: I am supprised at your reply,only that of the many children shot dead in Chicago and the assaults on police office by peaceful protesters,the blinding of the police officers by peaceful protesters that the democratic could have resolved with a proper police deterant. Whatever political persuation these are facts which have harmed Americans serverly. This is a poetry site where any point of view can be discussed and I see the anti-trump poems and attacks weekly. ps you must know these defenders of government property are not stormtroopers?
    August 14, 2020 at 12:20PM
    Bananafish308: They certainly ARE stormtroopers.

    Everyone watch real close to see where this navy vet "attacks" police before being pummeled and gassed:

    August 14, 2020 at 3:41PM
    Bananafish308: ...or these medics committing the unpardonable crime of trying to help an injured human being. If these are stormtroopers, what is?

    August 14, 2020 at 3:44PM
    Bananafish308: ...or stormtroopers first throwing a flash bang grenade at mothers protesting, then tear gassing them:

    August 14, 2020 at 3:48PM
    CD Richards: The calm, measured and intelligent words of the gentleman in the first video in response to the fascist thuggery to which he was subjected must make any thoughtful person cringe, Bill.

    The truly terrifying thing to me is not that there are thousands of these brutal, abominable thugs masquerading as police and military service personnel, not even that the government proactively encourages this sort of abuse of its own citizens. It is that there are tens of millions of people who think this is how humans should treat other humans, and find nothing wrong with it. Good job of posting these clips, Bill.
    August 15, 2020 at 1:06AM
    Bananafish308: Totally agree, Craig. Case and point to your last point is the post at the top of this page.
    August 15, 2020 at 2:30PM
    mrsmajor: Colin,

    If you continue to try and turn this into a political debate, I will notify Tom, perhaps you're not aware that there isn't a political site here anymore..TOM removed it, and you are obviously inviting differing opinions that will surely turn political...Of course I could response, but I prefer to follow the rules.
