Yes - about ten years ago.









If you had to travel back and live in a previous century, which one would you pick?

Perhaps to the Golden Age in the twelfth century, which ended with the death of Alexander III in 1286. There are, however, unattractive aspects to most periods in the past.

If you could reach back and change one decision or happening in your past life, what would it be, and how do you think it would change your subsequent life?

I wouldn't have begun training as a nurse - a job I was not suited for. Then I would be further advanced in my current career.

Yes.

Two years ago Penny and I took classes in French -
French for old dummies.
After a wee while we went to Paris for the weekend
Stayed in a hotel.
Got into the lift and immediately broke the rules of etiquette -
we said Good Morning to a couple in the lift.

Cold stares. Then Monsieur said "Frrrench please "

Aha. French - a chance to practise our new phrases.

"Bonjour" said we, "...Nous sommes Ecossais".

More blank looks.... but keep going.

"Nous habitons à Glasgow"

Polite smiles.... Now we're getting somewhere.

"Dans un apartement ....".

Very strange looks.... Don't give up yet.

"La douche ne marche pas".

Then the lift stopped, doors opened and Monsieur
et Madame scurried off - forgetting to say "Au revoir".



How do you like the smoking ban then ?

Bloody love it :grin: No more stinky clothes after a trip to a pub.

What one website would you recommend to other users to keep them amused during a long day at work? (Apart from Think Humanism of course)

The Heathen Hangout, of course! Nice bunch of people...just looking for the company of other Heathens. Most everyone there is quite loveable! :love:

What's the scariest thing you've ever done?

In my early 20's, I took a child's plastic sled off the face at the ski lodge! (Just the shape of a small boat...no steering mechanism)
I was in one... a friend in the other. We were mid-air most of the time and we were lucky we didn't smash into a lift-pole or tree. The only way to even SLIGHTLY steer was to lean completely on my side.
IT WAS AWESOME! :happyclappy:
It was really scarey...but the wildest ride I've ever been on.
My friend now says that we were "crazy" to do it, and he would never do anything like that, now.
I...on the other hand...given the opportunity... would do it again in a heartbeat.
That's the scariest thing I've ever done...not the scariest thing that has ever hapened to me, tho.


So my next question is.....

The scariest thing I've done was to get in a plane prior to a parachute jump. The club was (in the late 1970's) full of paras in university sweatshirts and students in military fatigues, but (luckily?) it was too windy. I wouldn't have the courage now.

Had a drunken redneck chase me waving a gun.

Sorry, I took too long to answer Goldie's post - oops!

I'd give money to all my friends and loved ones, a bunch of shelters, and bug the hell out of here for Europe.

That all of humanity could live in a peaceful, happy bliss...no more pain or sorrow... a Utopia of sorts.
Joy to the World...in a "Three Dog Night" kinda way. :grin:

My Auntie Margaret. She died five years ago of bowel cancer. She always seemed to have bad things happen to her, but was never bitter and never down. Always an inspiration.

Yes - one night in Arrochar -
- in a field, out in the open.
- Freezing - but the local police wouldn't let us into the cells.
