Hi, so how are all you doing since Tuesday. I do not know if anyone noticed I was gone but was not on the computer from Tuesday till this morning and want to know if you have been behaving yourselves while I was a way and what is new with all of you?

@mandala100 Peter I am sending you a link. It is complicated to explain and maybe this will help. I will give you a little background. We have a period in the summer that starts the 3 weeks that leads to Tisha B'Av. not sure if you know abut any of this. We mourn our temples that were destroyed and the 3 weeks begins with a a fast and then leads up to what is called Tisha B'AV where we fast. On Tuesday I was not on the computer at all and wanted to make sure I did everything right I stayed off yesterday and came back on today. Here is a link that may help you more understand:
@JudyEv Wow, you get hot and rain. We have hot during the day and cooler in the morning and at night here. It is our summertime now. It will stay nice till about November or December when the winter starts to come. We get snow but not all the time. Here it is cold both inside and out so need some kind of heating inside for the winter.

@Hannihar isn't that all a matter of one's perspective? Throughout my 62 years of life, I have been told that I am an instigator. Or that I can't keep my mouth shut. Those were things that were considered against rules of some sort. I have always been a curious person and liked to ask questions. I believe that I've always seen life from a philosopher's point of view and trying to make sense of the world. I have always challenged what has been thrown at me even as a young child. Let's face it, the systems in which we are born, and the choices that we make in life to enter into systems, are not conducive challenging the status quo. I am often seen as The Devil's Advocate, when I'm just trying to understand a much bigger picture. So, to answer your question, I have a very skewed vision of what that means behaving myself. I have struggled in my life with the shame and guilt of not knowing how to fit in because of personality, whether that is in family, Church, military, Work situations. I do not think that I'm hard to get along with, but I do understand that other people's perceptions of me think that I ask too many questions. And that is difficult for many.
@CoralLevang I am a person that people either like or do not. I am basically an honest person and also have been very curious since I was a little kid. I ask questions too because I want to know things and am curious. I would say we are special people and most people do not understand special people.
