I'm pretty sure I have a flea comb - the teeth are very
close
together, but I have not been able to get any fleas at all
while using
it. They slip through the teeth. I'll look for another
one. Thanks!

Hah, when I was much younger (much much younger) I once
managed to
catch a case of crab lice. I got some poison from the
drugstore along
with a comb, and realized that that's where the expression
"going over
something with a fine tooth comb" comes from. I remember
laughing out
loud as the thought popped into my head. Until then it was
just words
without context.

It's also where the expression "nit picking" comes from.

It wasn't until the forth or fifth grade that I realized we
liven in, "one
nation indivisible". Before that, I thought you couldn't see
it. (from outer
space, I guess)

Oh good, I felt certain I wasn't the only one to make that
mistake!
But I always had trouble with the next few words, since I
didn't
really believe in God. I still don't in the way most people
mean it,
you know, the old bearded guy in the white robe. I guess
someday
relatively soon I'll find out. Or not.

It would be pretty funny if it turns out to be a rainbow
bridge
though.

When I was in Grammar school, "He" wasn't mentioned. It was one
nation, in(di)visible ... I still get hung up in saying it the
'new ' way,
and by then everyone is going on "with liverty an justice furr
all."

I had a friend who was agnostic...when she sneezed, and I said
"G*d
bless you" she would say "I doubt it."

I have been an atheist all of my life. Even when I was a
pre-schooler, when I went to church, and saw the others praying, I
would ask, "Who ar they talking to?" and when they said, "God", I
knew that there was no such thing and they were fooling themselves,
or kidding, or wasting their time. Now, I tell the religious people
who pester me to become a believer, that its a good thing I don't
believe in their God, because if I did, I would hate his guts for
all the pain and suffering he causes/allows to the millions of
little furry creatures he freezes and starves to death every
Winter.

True, there is no old man with a long white beard and flowing robes,
but there is the totality of energy in the universe...........


Yes. Neither the religious nor I know where it came from or why it
is here, but the difference between us is, I am willing to admit
that I don't know, and they are not.


I generally consider that I have about as much of a chance of
understanding the purpose behind "life, the universe, and everything"
as an ant has of understanding why I'm watching a baseball game.


.....Me, Me!! - I don't understand why you would watch a baseball game.....

Hello cat lovers!

Any advice and help with be greatly appreciated! Thanks! I am upset
because I think she is in misery.

You have to vacuum your entire house and spray everywhere with a hormone
growth regulator. You also need to be using something really effective on
her such as Revolution. Many of the products on the store shelves are no
longer working.

http://www.vetinfo.com/flea-products...egulators.html

Fleas are becoming very resistant to the OTC products.


Thanks, I'll work on it.


It's safe for you and your pets. It's non-toxic unlike some of the stuff
they're pushing online.

Amen brother Bill. I feel the exact same way. I had a friend who always
said, "Nothing fails like prayer." Somewhere along the line I lost my faith
and belief in the Christian/Jewish God. I believe it happened slowly as I
matured and saw and learned what went on in the world. Where was/is this
God when people and animals needed him/it most? Nowhere to be found. When
millions of people starve to death and/or die of disease, my believer
friends would say, "It's part of God's plan." Their God plans these
horrific deaths? God planned the AIDS virus, the Bubonic plague and all the
wars since time began? What kind of God would do that or look the other way
and let such things continue?

As for the animals... God has and shows no mercy for them or he would do
something. People torture and kill them with impunity (crush videos are the
worst) and this God does nothing! Of what use is this God? You can
fervently pray for 2 people with cancer. One will live and the other will
die. I just don't get it.

There may be some kind of intelligent life out there in the universe, maybe
it even created the Big Bang... but it sure as heck was no compassionate,
loving, all-caring, all knowing God the believers talk about.

Because they're afraid to admit it and lose out on Paradise or Heaven. In
their hearts many people have doubts but even fear verbalizing or admitting
them.

The operative phrase in the above is, "Of what use is this God?" Obviously,
he has no use at all. Even if he exists, he is an illogical dunce, and not
worthy of any reguard at all, much less our worship. A typewriter, thrown
froim the roof of a 100 story skyscraper has just as much chance of hitting
a child on the sidewalk below as it does of hitting a trash can. Only the
percentage of the sidewalk's surface occluded by both enters into the
equasion. In over two thousand years no God has had any effect on the
affairs of man or beast at all, even if one were to believe in the Christian
myth. So, if he has no effect, then why bother with him? Surely we have more
important things to concern ourselves with. (Like taking care of a few feral
cats.)

An old adage says never argue about politics and religion; somehow, we
can't help it. Taking care of feral cats is part of God's plan -
preserving or attempting to preserve the sanctity of life:

Matthew 25:40:

"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Another thing: You have to define what you are denying. What do you
mean by "God"? I've already told you what my conception is.

Some of us believe that God appears to us in this. I didn't bother
reading the notes at the very beginning before I listened to it and
watched this amazing woman (watch her feet). The notes are spot-on:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2oCX9woz9U

You may say that it's only a woman playing the organ. Well, that's
just the point: Quod erat demonstrandum.
