We've had this problem before with connection times.|
I think it's because this is an American website, and according to the CIA world book, Slovakia is only twice the size of New Hampshire. So sometimes little things are hard to find, or they slip through the fingers.

She's a multitasking llama .|
-Gets up , turns on computer , has breakfast , goes to work , comes home , has dinner , finishes quiz.
And still gets 900 points.

Looking back at some of the previous posts to get my bearings on what was currently being discussed in the Llama/Pirate SAND BOX. I was amazed at the number of interesting social interactions and how they progressed. Does it seem to y'all that we ( yes I'm including myself ) are still learning how to get along and play well with others? After reading a number of these interactions I was reminded me of something I read some time ago that seemed relevant to our current discussions. |
What do y'all think about the following words written by Robert Fulghum? Could it really be this simple?
"ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN
These are the things I learned:
•Don't hit people.
•Put things back where you found them.
•Clean up your own mess.
•Don't take things that aren't yours.
•Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
•Wash your hands before you eat.
•Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
•Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
•Take a nap every afternoon.
•When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
•Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
•Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
•And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK."

I love the "nap ever afternoon idea"!|

Morpheus, I like that list a lot.|
I have to teach Global Citizenship skills to 8 year olds. They can work out that those rules make sense, and build a good community in school. Maybe we should just send a copy to various world leaders in troublespots and say
'It's this simple really'
One of the things that makes this thread fun is that we tease each other, but if anyone got upset, there'd be a flood of apologies. We also accept that we have different views, and that's OK too. We don't need to fight about it.
How does everyone else feel? No sore spots?

Not at all, I was wonder the same thing for others. I surely hope not. I love playing with you all, and I do enjoy being a brat. I do not want that to change! |

I guess if not you can go have a time-out :)|
Reply #651. Nov 23 08, 12:36 PM
It's like I said yesterday. I enjoy coming here for some fun and I'm sure we all know that it is only fun. If I've ever upset anybody then I apologise now.|

In fact, RJ, I think you're coming down on us a little heavy handed - are your pups driving you mad? Have a beer and chill out.|

He's probably sleeping in a heap of shredded bed linen and newspapers, and exhausted by mopping up puddles...not to mention defending his dinner from hopeful snackers.|
Rather like attempting to raise children.
What's up Morpheus, what made you think we are still learning to get along rather than being annoying mates?

Love the image Jabberwok, RJ fighting the pups for the grizzle from the last of the supper bones :)|

Did you mean gristle fredfrank? |
Grizzle is that thin whiny crying noise that children and puppies make when they are miserable, tired and peevish.

I love the expression on that pup's face..|
Trying hard to work out why you're not happy. :)
