Seems like in life many things and opportunities come unexpected.  We just have to jump in with both feet and make them work out for us.

Many thanks Wright, that's very kind of you.

Have to say that I'm feeling pretty far from confident I'll get it (reached a point yesterday when I nearly changed my mind because I had such strong doubts) but keep reminding myself that all I'm doing is applying and just seeing what happens!

I think it's a combination of things. It's always been there and it is more visible.  Trump has encouraged these vermin to come into the light.  Now he wants to pardon that jackass sheriff Arapaio.   He can be forced to read a statement but he doesn't agree with it at all with actions like that.

Wanted to offer my apologies for not having gotten back to people better in threads/conversations recently. It's been difficult recently for me to spend much time here because I'm currently taking part in an employment support programme offered by a mental health charity local to me. It means I've had to spend a lot of time on things in relation to that recently. 

Plus, something unexpected out of this has come up. I've been told about a voluntary reception/administrator vacancy going at the charity and have decided to apply for it! Have been having mixed feelings as to whether or not this is a good idea (given I've felt that maybe the timing is a bit early), but have decided to give it a shot anyway. It is one of those things that's unexpectedly taking me quite a bit longer than expected (given it's the first application form of it's kind I've filled out in a long time now) however.

What with all this, on top of needing to keep up with usual routine stuff, I've been pretty busy!

Hoping to be able to be at least a bit more active here again soon when, hopefully, things calm down at least somewhat.

Museum of the Bible

museum definition, meaning, what is museum: a building where objects of historical, scientific, or artistic interest are kept:

Wonder what REAL ITEMS they will have on display?  Most museums I'm aware of have things like real dinosaur bones or paintings by the original artist. The word museum makes me think they will have authentic items on display (like was mentioned in the bible). I can't wait to see the burning bush, maybe we'll be able to talk to God like Moses did.

I like Trey Crowder's take on it:


I wish I could be as optimistic as he that racism is overall losing ground in the US, but have my doubts. Or is it just that the new social media make it more visible and thus enable such poison to spread more easily?

these idiots sure do fetishize failure with their confederate battle flags and Nazi nonsense.

And for all of their supposed white pride, some of them sure don't like being broadcast all over social media.

pretty SOP for cowards and bullies like these idiots.   Every time I hear about the bigoted fools, I always picture the neo-nazis in The Blues Brothers
