    Honduras, heck, I ran into that same spider on its web where I grew up in Louisiana. Hand-sized spider (including legs), it sat perched on my head. My older sister who was following me on the trail, saw it on my head, screamed and ran home. I recall my displeasure with her leaving me to die at the fangs of a spider. My dad came back and swatted it off. Later he told me how freaked out he was too, but you know dads, nothing appears to phase them
    Stuff like that sure does clue you in to who your friends are!

    You won't. In your next life you're coming back as a toilet brush.

    Helix, you seem like the coolest, calmest, most easy going guy. I really like the way you write.

    thank you for the compliment.

    in reality, i'm a little more nervous and stumbling / awkward. however, the internet gives me that extra second to gather my thoughts.

    No, I don't hate liberals, I agree with them on some issues too.

    However, I do hate a mentality that would say religious people shouldn't vote or that religion should be discourage, persecuted, oppressed, or made illegal.

    You are aware, DV, are you not, that "free speech" is limited, and must be.
    And liberals are to counter religious extremists, a serious problem.
    But, no hate necessary.

    Paranoia will destroy ya....

    Enjoy America. America rocks. Don't let life pass you by waiting for the sky to fall.

    I almost went the flu/pandemic route because I've had pneumonia for the better part of the week. But I'll get over it and still worry about the progressive Orwellian path my country is taking.
