Trust me I agree I believe that if you know some where down the road that your're not going to have the time for children then do not have them. My wife just found out that she has PCOS. And as of right now we're not sure if she can have kids only time will tell. This bothers me because thier are people out there who would make great parents & yet can not have kids. It's sad that some people do not see this.

While I agree with you to a point I still think it requires an effort to make time with your family. Dropping your kids off at the mall for the day is not trying. My wife is the general manager at a local bookstore & she has parents dropping thier kids off at 8 AM & not picking them up untill almost close, which is at 11 PM. How is that making time for your kids? I am not saying all parents do this but if they really wanted to make to for thier kids they could. Sorry this is a personal thing for me.

I think part of the problem today is that no one really looks out for the other the family I mean. 200 -300 years ago famlies counted on each other to make it though life. These days it seems kids can't wait to break free of thier family.
Something has really changed over time & sadly for the worse. All this hugh tech stuff was supposed to make life easier, & it seems all that it has done is push us apart.

I agree. To me family is very important but it seems nowadays I stand alone. I have two great daughters, one lives right across the street from me and the other 10 mins. away and I hardly see them there lives are so busy. Sometimes it hurts.

I have to wonder at times if it's a choice not to make time for your family. It seems all this technology has taken over what used to be family time. The kids run off to thier rooms & get on-line the parents seem to do the same. It's like an excuse to get away from reality & whats most important to you. Like I said before we do not have kids at this time but we have talked about we & we do not want to make the same mistakes as our parents did.

I think family is something that we have got away from more then anything in the past 200-300 years. No one has time for anyone else these days.

My wife & I have been house hunting off & on for a bit nothing to serious just, trying to get an idea of whats out there. We ran across this house that was bulit around the dining room. The room was smack in the middle of the house, I forget how old the house was but it was intresting to see & if for no other reason I liked the house because of that one thing. If I ever bulid a house I think thats what I would do it puts focus on the family.

I remember as a kid always being outside whenever I had the chance to. I never stepped foot in the hourse unless it was to get something to drink. It seems these says that most kids tend to stay inside. Playing games or on the computer granted society has made it hard for kids to have some place to play. There was a skateboard park out by an airstrip the city closed t down & the only one left is the one on base. How are the kids who skate supposed to get to it? The city tears the only public place they have to skate & then complians when they skate elsewhere.

I know this is a bit off topic sorry...

Patch, your correct people take & take these days back then people had some sence of balance with nature & they know to give what they took. Some people these days think somehow we'll be ok & that we can get away without caring where it's coming from.

Do you think we are better off then we were some 200-300 years ago?

Pros: Sure the medicene we have is alot better & we can travel to the far ends of the world & back. We can flip a switch & we have light, heat, Ac. We can watch whats going on in other parts of the world, we can find out about anything just by logging into our computers.


Cons: We no lnger seen to spend time with our loved ones the TV & the computer takes time away from those we love. Yes we can fly around the world & back. However, because we're able to travel so easily overpopulation has got worse. Famlies no long sit around the table & talk about thier day. A village would have to work toghether to surive, these days we fight each other out of greed. We bulid house because people are being born by the thousands everyday. Because we have to keep buliding somany house we have to tear up even more of the earth. The cars, trucks, buses,etc we travel in have a huge effect on the environment.

Thats my take one it..... What say you?

I want a very Pagan funeral I want my body set out on a raft & lit by arrows. Legally I am not sure for this is possible. If this is not possible then I want want my body in a huge bonfire & lit again I am not sure how legal this is unless you own your land. If none of this is possible then I would like my ashes scattered around my favorite tree as we believe trees are gateways to the Otherworld.

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to hell.  Spirituality is for those who have already been there. 

I think I read that quote somewhere on this site once.  I really like it!

My journey has been a long dark one but I have settled in the church of my ancestors, Scottish Presbyterianism.  My church actually was started by immigrants that came to America the same time my clan did and shares the same beliefs.

Your right to a point but hell is a Judeo-Christian concept no other religion believes in the concept of hell.

If Christians are wrong about hell, then we all have nothing to worry about. But if it's real unsure.gif There'll be a lot of very unhappy people on the other side when it comes that appointed time. That point alone is what keep me believing, learning and praying.

I'm not sure that fear should be a reason to follow any religion. The better safe then sorry idea doesn't work for me.

I was a Christian when I was younger but the more I learned about Christianty the more I didn't care for it. I've been calling myself a Pagan for the past 10 years, the last 6 months I have been studying Druidism. I love it but because those before me have been wiped out & typical they praticed oral tradations, so nothing was written down. So most of what you read about Druidism is based on reconstruction. My wife I a Witch not Wiccan I think anyone who calles themselves a Pagan knows the difference.
