Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Friends! Happy Saturday Phamily, Refugees, Triggeratti, Early Birds, Dawn Patrol and Fascinating People! I haven't forgotten you Bigots, Conversants and Lurkers! Some Morning quotes from Henry David to prime your pump and ponder with your coffee and crumpets.
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. - Henry David Thoreau
Marching to the beat of your own drum is part of the Enlightened mythos, authoritarian collectivism is not. Not all collectives are bad, we belong to so many, voluntarily. Compulsion is the real issue. For the jolly Authoritarian, their ideas are so compelling that they must force you to adopt them. Where there is no will or means to resist, they can make great progress in the bending of wills by the breaking of bodies. There are many nations to exemplify this. There are exceptions, but none perfect because people aren't perfect. While people aren't perfect, they can strive for higher ideals. The foundation of an evolving Judeo-Christians ethos vs the Frankensteined & Wokeified Marxism. Stay tuned for the end of the match - the fight isn't over. Be part of it by your contribution to society, to civility, to the expression of ideas and the freedom to question. Which leads us to the other quote by Henry David.
So behave that the odor of your actions may enhance the general sweetness of the atmosphere. - Henry David Thoreau
Somewhere in Vermont the sun rose and someone captured it. Happy Saturday Friends!

It used to be the thing talked about 20 years ago, do we now embrace it?
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you.

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
