Okay...time to mend fences.

I get that there are people here who have fundamentally different opinions about the way this country runs. There will always be debates, arguements regarding that. People will insult, others will be insulted. Some here will never get along. I know that. But there are some here who have known (as well as you can know people online) each other for a long time. Making vague insults directed at people you know and have had laughs with, is so uncalled for. There arent enough people here to not know who is being pointed at. If you have a beef...argue, fight, make up. But please do it up front and personal.
And..btw...can someone please tell me who belongs to this coven i keep reading about?

Good post Carla, I agree it is past time to mend fences, but the divide is so great, I'm not sure that will ever happen. I for one am trying my best to understand the opinions of others that I don't always agree with, and to show respect, but sometimes it's hard. I would like to see more civil debate on here regarding politics.
I have no idea what this coven I keep seeing is, or who is in it. My opinions are mine alone and I am trying to stay neutral and independent.

Civility is going the way of phone booths. I find it disturbing that the veil provided by online communication is ruining us.

Ain't that the truth Carla. The internet has made personal contact a thing of the past. Kind of sad really.

You and I have been great friends since Sodahead days, we don't always agree, but we've never had a falling out. Thank you for always having my back, through thick and thin.

I hope I never lose you as a friend, because it hurts like hell to lose a long time friend, only to find out he never liked me to begin with.

hug smilie

@StarzAbove You and I have been great friends since Sodahead days, we don't always agree, but we've never had a falling out...

Whatever gave you the impression I liked you??? JK, I consider you a good friend, but you should really eat kale and avocado's hehe smiliehug smiliemischief smilie

@Flrdsgns Whatever gave you the impression I liked you??? JK, I consider you a good friend, but you should really eat kale...

Boo hoo! I am not going to eat that nasty kale or avodados, you can have it all for yourself. I'll stick to my potato chips. Yummy! lol

@Flrdsgns No Twinkies or Red Velvet cake?

We ARE lays fans. But a chip in some guac? Again...mmmmm

I found a roadside stand last week was able to pick up 10 Bacon Avocado's for 5 bucks and 20 Haas Avocado's for 5 bucks. Sometimes living in California has it's advantages.

Today, they were two for four dollars:[.
I would say that, yes, you have an advantage.

Haas or Bacon Avocado's? the Bacon ones are a bit lighter and longer than the Haas, and have a very mild creamy taste.

@Flrdsgns Haas or Bacon Avocado's? the Bacon ones are a bit lighter and longer than the Haas, and have a very mild creamy taste.

Haas.
We sometimes get a larger lighter kind here, maybe they are your bacons. They do have a creamier texture.

Carlas avatar Carla Agree +2Reply
@Flrdsgns Yeah, that sounds like bacon, they are primarily a winter avocado.

They are seldom around. I like the haas better, though. I like the texture better. I dont let them get too ripe. I enjoy them sliced on sandwiches, too. They are just one of those foods. Yummy and healthful.
Make wonderful oil.

They do, I slice them and put them on most sandwiches, Many times I will mush it up and spread it instead of using Mayo

I agree, there are some people who are always playing the victim and accusing others of exactly what they are doing. I'm quick to forgive, but after many trashes and bullying, I reach a point where I say.............NO MORE!

Hi Rembio, Sorry, I don't remember if we've met before now, I hope to see you more.

Anyway, I understand your comment - 100%. Thing is if we want to co-exist, there comes a time when we need to toss the scoreboard and try to start anew.

Of course we'll feel a bit put upon the next time there is an argument, but we've got to try. The alternative of constant mistrust, growing dislike, etc. just isn't a good way to live. IMHO

I really like the sentiment, so I'm agreeing. Not just on this site, but in the general scheme of things. I understand that it isn't always possible. Not just among individuals on the internet, but with extreme differences in beliefs one holds of any kind.

I do know what "the coven" term is referring to, but it wouldn't really be appropriate to go into, on this particular post.

Yes...some divides are wide. In all aspects of life.
But if one cannot build a bridge, one should stay away from the edge.

When you find the time, i would love to hear of this coven thing.

Ive seen the coven thing several times. Just a bit baffled by it.
I agree that if two people need to cut ties, they should. But if that happens, it's then time to stop the vague jabs by ALL parties.

@Carla Thank you, starz.

hug smilie At least you tried. But when hurt badly, it's very hard to mend fences.

@Carla I am oddly...optimistic.

Yes you are, and that's a good thing. And so am I about some things. biggrin smilie

I don't hold grudges and I don't seek revenge, but sometimes forgiving just takes a little longer.

hahaha It takes a strong man to put up with us "strong" women. loleyes smilie

Holding back isn't really a thing for me and I also compartmentalize.

We've only recently met, but my SH friend who know me really well... We've been through some shit together. Suffice it to say it would take a helluva lot more than politics to disturb the force.

If I had something to say to them like you've described, I'd pick the phone up and call them. I have it on good authority they'd do the same. lol Holding back isn't a thing for them either!

I have no idea about the rest. But consider this an invitation to anyone who wants to speak to me with a grievance. PM me and we'll figure it out. And I mean that earnestly.

@Carla You have always seemed to me to be straight talker. That is to be admired.

I try to be, people may not like what I say, but there's no wondering where I'm coming from. Thank you, btw.

What fences? I pay so little attention to those who bicker that I just don't see it - I often skip over the arguments as I don't like that at all.

@Budwick Fabulous Post...

We can certainly go back to the line, bud.

I never really know what's going on between people on here, that are fighting or whatever and I don't go out of my way to try and find out..
Just not my thing to get caught up in that.

I rarely block anybody.
I don't care if someone doesn't agree with me on something, I don't have a problem with that..that's life.

If you're going to disagree with me about something, then feel you need to lump me in a group and call that group...Assholes, idiots etc.
I don't need to hear from you anymore.

There are some things I try to stay away from on here because if I want drama... it's going to be in a movie...not on here.
