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: (In response to the use of the term "snowflake" by a Twitter user):

Yes, I've heard this word. I think sociopaths use it in an attempt to discredit the notion of empathy.

CD Richards: Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from the other.

CD Richards: Did you hear about the woman who couldn't take a selfie in the shower because the steam fogged up the lens and made the pictures all blurry? Apparently, she had selfie steam issues.

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.

    damommy: Hahahaha. So I guess I needn't expect one in the mail.

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?
    November 27, 2020 at 5:20PM
    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.
