Morning,, guess I"m the first today. Beautiful Weather yesterday except i got me Van stuck in a parking lot,, three nice folk came and helped me out though, bless them! No bad weather yet but may come in tonight???.... Gurpy... How about we ask our questions on this site as it is after all a Social Site ( for most )and not to bother the other room, as some don"t care for it.. just to keep the peace,lol... Celeste.. any more poams in the making??... Later friends...
Gurpy 2/20/2014 7:52:31 AM Report

Good morning. Glad you had help with the van! As for always discussing God in one room only, I do not agree. Some may be just reading and really thinking which starts the process! They talk about ANYTHING else they desire so why should we shut up?
Gurpy 2/20/2014 9:04:11 AM Report

protector said I`m allowed to post WHATEVER I want! I`m not mad at you. I just don`t agree. We`ll chat later.
celeste5 2/20/2014 9:07:56 AM Report

Good morning everyone.

No way, no Religion or Politics are allowed in this Social Room, LOL.
I have a few Poems, I may post another.

Have to go, I`m watching Canada`s Ladies Curl.

Wicket 2/20/2014 9:10:07 AM Report

Gurpy, Irishfey, the blue room as it is called is a NEWS response room not a religious chic-chat room. As for this room, it is a social room open to social conversation and from the start, politics and religion have not been a part of it by agreement with the posters. Perhaps you two could exchange e-mail addresses and share your info that way, as the majority both here and in the other room will only express interest in the subject once and then not again.
irishfey 2/20/2014 9:28:38 AM Report

Wicket,, agreed,, but please take note that Meself and Gurpy are not always the ones that start the God conversations ,lol.. I have seen them on there way before i came on.... And the Social Site,, potty mouth insults on here to???... But i will comply....later
irishfey 2/20/2014 9:46:41 AM Report

Gurpy.. I"m just tired of all the insults etc. your right,, you can post what you like.. no posters own these sites! Just tired of all the fighting and potty mouth remarks,, I have better things to do with my time... not mad at anyone either... Celeste,,,I Don"t think it was up to the first posters to have the right to say what was said in here, but you all carry on,, still love your poams.... later..
right wing 2/20/2014 9:49:26 AM Report

Did you hear the one about God meeting the politician.....

I may have to make this site a daily stop just to drop a political verse or have a conversation with God...A.K.A. Wicket.

celeste5 2/20/2014 9:53:44 AM Report


It was always this way, even before I came to the Red Room.
irishfey 2/20/2014 10:02:02 AM Report

Lol,, thank you Rightwing.. good one... and Celeste.. whatever ,lol
Bobby Nerves 2/20/2014 10:04:00 AM Report

Everyone should be welcome in this forum, with the exception of those selling drugs to children.

Keep your son away from the red room, and probably you shouldn't even show your ugly spirit around here.

Wicket 2/20/2014 10:17:55 AM Report

Everyone is welcome, everyone changes, life changes, people move on, there used to be well over a 100 posts on here daily by at least 30 posters. Now there are only a few that post and lots that lurk.
For people that wish to discuss religion in depth, perhaps we could ask SooToday to create another room.
irishfey 2/20/2014 10:24:40 AM Report

Wicket.. I already mentioned that in a previous post.. A Religious site would most welcomed by some,, but in the and let live!.. Ever know what the meaning of that is?? It means for some to mind their own business and leave others to theirs,, no sarcasm intended,, again...
Gurpy 2/20/2014 10:28:19 AM Report

You asked me a question regarding something of a spiritual nature the other night. You were the only one with enough courage to do so. That spoke volumes to me about you as a person! I`d like to leave it at that.
I do plan on posting whatever I desire. I`m not doing anything illegal. Some may be offended as anyone is when something less than appealing is posted. I myself have read some very crude comments!I`m sure sootoday moderators have had their work cut out for them.
Bobby Nerves 2/20/2014 10:39:23 AM Report

Wicket, provocation and cold shoulder is very obvious and a person can ignore it for some time, but everyone have the right to let someone else knows that their attitude, their expressions, are unwelcome.

If they ignore it, they ignore you, then someone has to do something and when the rules are broken, the rules are broken for everyone.

Certain people (nicknames) disappear but the reality is that they go through a mutation process, well nothing to be ashamed of there, the colorful butterfly was an ugly worm before...

We, humans are learning machines and as such, we're subject to do mistakes, and mistakes are necessary to learn and grow, and each time we commit a mistake, someone, somehow is touched.

irishfey 2/20/2014 10:49:12 AM Report

Yup,, A real "Social" site here ,
Gurpy 2/20/2014 10:59:15 AM Report

Gurpy 2/20/2014 11:05:26 AM Report

You mentioned your husband has no knowledge of your account with sootoday or you user name. Why is that? I don`t recall holding back info. from mine when I was married. There shouldn`t be any secrets between a husband and wife.
celeste5 2/20/2014 11:16:37 AM Report

For those who don`t know,
Canada`s Ladies won the Gold in Curling, Right On.
Bobby Nerves 2/20/2014 12:37:07 PM Report

Wicket, further. You'll have to calm down and be who you are.
You're a very fortunate person as you're loved and take care of and you make everyone comfortable.

I'm thankful to myself and to the country allowing me to stretch the wings and fly freely and as I fly high and higher, I can see down there the crows scavenging and socializing over some coyote carcase, but I can't be distracted with the cawing, life is so good from up here.

The whole success is to live and make it to Heaven. The rest is all in the books.
Gurpy 2/20/2014 12:54:53 PM Report

That was beautiful!

Irish fey, Cold pail of water time again or valium or whatever.
Just Curious 2/20/2014 2:40:55 PM Report

Just came back from a long walk with Sir Muttly. You just can't get a more relaxing way to spend a 1/2 hour than watching your dog investigating all kinds of new stuff that's now coming out of the snow. Some people had their dogs tied out and he just went and had a sniff and smell and carried on down the street. Yes, he was off leash but he minds and is just inquisitive as hell, one of the things I love about him. On a beautiful day like this you just can't stay mad about anything if you give life half a chance..:)
pride 2/20/2014 2:59:21 PM Report

Congratulations Canadian Women's Hockey....The Gold !!!!
Just Curious 2/20/2014 3:09:48 PM Report

Yesssss !!Womens hockey GOLD and womens curling GOLD !!! C'mon team Jacobs and team Canada, make it a clean sweep....:)
Wicket 2/20/2014 4:42:26 PM Report

Bobby nerves - thanks...
Gurpy 2/20/2014 6:10:00 PM Report

I noticed in one of your posts that you made a point of announcing that you had been on this site since the beginning. Were you implying that these two chat rooms are based on seniority in addition to attempts by certain posters to turn both sites into "politically correct" rooms?
Bobby Nerves 2/20/2014 6:53:20 PM Report

I'm the last one to tell you something about this site, because I landed here no long ago and my manners are not the best in town and my command of English is very basic, but if you allow me an opinion; Wicket for motu propio, takes the time to invite everyone into her house; from time to time. I'd the privilege of being invited and attended a gathering and in that way I got to know people that never posted here, but they read daily. I shared a good time with about other 12 or 15 members.

I hate to say, and I don't judge you, but I can read you're an articulated person and would like to be accepted, as we all do and I believe you are accepted here as any one else, this is a place for a joke and some... spiritual cuddling if you wish. For me was very useful through my journey with cancer as I spent weeks and months at the time in the Hospital and so it was in time for Skipper Dave; like a window to the world. You'll find some support, you'll find someone that will have a word of enthusiasm... here, many will remind -just when you forgot that it existed- that the light is always on at the end of the tunnel.

Then, as I said in the beginning, when a gathering is planned, get on board and you'll be surprised, if not amazed of the group of people you are surrounded with.

This is a big place and there is room for everyone, but if you believe you're unwelcome, there is nothing we can do about it, no one is gonna ask you to stay, neither to go away. This is free. There is no need to elbow people aside, just step in, have a seat and tell us your story, we are all ears and have many opinions, actually we have an opinion for everything.

Don't play with religion because you're playing with fire and most likely that same fire will burn you. If I'd like to know how good a Christian you are, I'll not ask you, I'll ask your neighbor.

I hope you can understand what I said and I look forward to see you when there is a get together.

Probably you know all this from long before me, but, I had to say it anyways.
Gurpy 2/20/2014 7:05:00 PM Report

Thank you for taking the time to write that post.
I`ve lost many, many people to cancer. I lost many people to political correctness, seniority, poverty, wealth and greed!
Everyone should have the opportunity to voice his or her opinion without being attacked or judged. Notice I said "voice" their opinion? Responses aren`t necessary. I`ve read posts that I simply skimmed over. Sometimes there`s not much point.
Today I read a few posts which turned my stomach so I ignored them.
Everybody is so touchy when it comes to "God". But, boy oh boy when the going gets tough! You know what I``m trying to say.
Stay safe tonight! The local weather says 110kmph winds for the Sault! Lets hope they are wrong!
Have a good and safe night Bobby!
