Getting a suntan

Lotsa flowers and wildlife coming on . . .

Pretty rainy lately, but snow is all gone, lawn is green, and the trees are starting to decorate themselves with buds, leaves and so on.

I'll be riding my lawnmower soon (cut over an acre). Much more enjoyable than plowing snow!

68. DU keeps your username in their database even if you are banned.

I know, I'm one of them

so

I just put "aka" in front of my username that I had on DU so people would recognize me.

Hell, ten years, over 13,000 posts - I made a few friends that I missed a lot.

So, I WANTED people to be certain of who I am.

I am not ashamed of my behavior on DU.

I just passed on your suggestion to the DU Facebook page where a lot of banned DUers hang out. Let's make 'aka' a badge of honor!

(But... I kind of like my new handle. I expect it to cause discussion.)

118. I have a totally different name, too.

I'm tired of my DU name. I'd change it if I could. DUers who are familiar with me and know where I'm from probably know who I am by my writing style. A lot of the words I use and my manner are a little different, I think, but maybe I'm wrong. I don't really care if people know who I am, but for now I kind of like being incognito. It's kind of exciting.

35. Happy to see you here too, femmocrat!

One of the first things I did in my profile/account settings was to select 'unwilling" for the jury duty part.

Already seen one post hidden and thread locked I could not see the problem with - so none of that for me thank you very much.

Anyways, survived the winter quite toasty - my avatar is my woodstove keeping my dwelling cozy.

Everything is turning green now, lots of wildlife, birds, bees (yes - even bees!) wabbits, gophers, chipmunks, squirrels - lots of life up here.

I did see your thread about my absence - I do peek in regularly on DU, though I can no longer participate.

Oh well, here I am . .

PARTICIPATING!

122. chknltl checking in

The very moment I signed up I got wrangled into judging an OP. It appeared to be spam to me so I voted to have it removed. I dunno, maybe I could have investigated it a bit further but if I recall my vote to remove was backed by four others and the alerter who also thought it was spam.

I would have thunk up a better name but I wasn't feeling particularly creative so I just added the 117 to my DU name instead of bugging Elad to release mine to me.

95. - Oh yeah, the winters are long and cold up here

But we REALLY appreciate our warm, even hot summer months, much more than those that live in moderate climates year round.

And watching momma nature bloom voraciously each Spring asserts that life goes on.

I found an abandoned garden in my backyard at my home I bought last year - cleaned it up a bit just yesterday. I intend to clean it much more, border it with rocks (lots of nice rocks on my 28 acres), and embellish it with some annuals.

4 hours work well worth it - Momma Nature did more than her part

60. California comes to mind . . .

I lived in Chula Vista in 79, as well as San Diego proper, Bonito, Mission Valley, National City and so on - -

then

Texas comes to mind, I drove through Amarillo on a tour in the earlier 70's.

Of course, your usernames could have nothing to do with that,

but they jogged my memories of pleasant trips and my 14 months of living in the USA over 33 years ago.

I got in (and out) while the "going was good" - No suspicions of strange Canucks motives.

Glad I had the experience, but never returning . . .

62. A bit more esoteric

Amaril was the name given to a cockatiel that lived with us years ago (early 90's). My son -- who was maybe 5 at the time -- gave her the name. I liked it so much that it became my preferred nom-de-net, and I've been using it since.

Chula is one of a mated pair of siamese cats in Thai mythology -- her mate was Tiene -- who were tasked with guarding a sacred chalice in a Buddhist temple while the temple's monk was away during a war. It was the name I gave to the siamese kitten my daughter found abandoned in a hedge who lived with me until about a month ago when she died suddenly of an unknown cause (unknown because I didn't have the $980 the vet wanted -- in full, up front -- to admit her to kitty hospital for tests). I'm not a big cat person, but I loved Chula from the first moment we set eyes on each other. She died in my arms, and my heart still hurts when I think about her. I chose the name in memoriam of her.

I really miss the old DU. It was a great refuge during the intolerable Bush years. There are still a lot of wonderful people who post there, but many, many more have fled. I hope we never have another republican presidency in my lifetime, but in case we do, perhaps then I'll return to DU, but I doubt it. All I'll say about it is that It's genuinely amazing (and sad) how many people who stood against certain policies and practices when Dumbya was president suddenly embrace them simply because a Democrat is.

142. Been on DU for about a decade

and using a different username here. I'm going to keep the two separate and not reveal my DU name. Doesn't really matter cuz I don't post that often anyway. I like being in reading/lurking mode.

153. Well, I can't really say that you didn't...

actually piss me off that fateful day (I faithfully boycotted the Olympics and I am one who absolutely loves the Winter Games, but I simply could not tolerate the bigotry that was ever-present behind their production this year), however, I'm not one to hold a grudge and I'm all for second-chances, thus my welcome. I'd always enjoyed reading most of your posts over the years and was honestly shocked and hurt by the comments that got you canned.

I'm around your same age and if I've learned anything as I glide into old-fogy-ism, it's that I'm never too old to learn.

164. And I thank you for that!



Regarding your mail, let me just say that this evening I watched a terrifying documentary, entitled "God Loves Uganda", and it very much reminded me that social justice, human rights, do not exist for so many around our planet, but more importantly, the short film demonstrated that there are some determined people who actually do have an agenda. They are bent on taking away the rights and in certain frightening cases, the very lives of people who cannot ever "conform" to who they narrowly think we should be. "I am who I am" is a phrase that far too many still haven't the right to utter. I don't think we should ever disregard or take lightly the cries for help from those who are fighting to throw off their chains of oppression. If you ever get the chance, try and see that documentary, you'll be moved by it the same way I was.

I enjoyed reading your "assertiveness" story; I'm like that, too. Have been all my life.

(I guess I haven't made enough posts to use the private message system, yet. I thank you for your mail, though, and appreciate what you wrote)

145. Well, I have serioius misgivings about this

This place, this step on my part, but I wanted to possibly reconnect with some folks from DU. I think there are other forums where some DUers (even non-banned ones!!) also post, but when I took a look at one or two, wasn't impressed.

Anyway, I don't expect to spend much time here. As i said, I have serious misgivings. It's interesting that admin apparently like the model they created -- and well they should, but no longer seem to have quite the commitment to liberal values they presumably once had. That doesn't set well with me straightaway.

Nor am I interested in disucssions with conservatives, for the most part. They don't have anything to SAY to me I haven't heard ad nauseum from too many other sources. Nor are they interested in anything I have to say, I'm quite sure.

And I really don't have the time to spend posting anyway. So -- what the HELL did I do this for? LOL.

Good to see some old faces. Wish I could recognize some of those who are incognito.

152. Present

and still semi-active (I'm actually in the middle of recharging my political batteries) at DU as shankapotomus. I was told by a fellow DUer once that there is a conservative somewhere on the internets that uses the same name so I was glad to drop it when I signed up here.

But if anyone uses the name spacebar at DU and wants it here, PM me. I'd be happy to create another name that doesn't step on anyone's toes.

But I am a long time DUer...and kind of enjoying the mystery of who I am over there...not that it would make a difference to me.
