Welcome to General Chat - GAW Community Area
This General Chat area started off as a place for people to talk about things that are off topic, however it has quickly evolved into a community and has become an integral part of the GAW experience for many of us.
Based on its evolving needs and plenty of user feedback, we are trying to bring some order and institute some rules. Please make sure you read these rules and participate in the spirit of this community.
Rules for General Chat
Be respectful to each other. This is of utmost importance, and comments may be removed if deemed not respectful.
Avoid long drawn out arguments. This should be a place to relax, not to waste your time needlessly.
Personal anecdotes, puzzles, cute pics/clips - everything welcome
Please do not spam at the top level. If you have a lot to post each day, try and post them all together in one top level comment
Try keep things light. If you are bringing in deep stuff, try not to go overboard.
Things that are clearly on-topic for this board should be posted as a separate post and not here (except if you are new and still getting the feel of this place)
If you find people violating these rules, deport them rather than start a argument here.
Feel free to give feedback as these rules are expected to keep evoloving
In short, imagine this thread to be a local community hall where we all gather and chat daily. Please be respectful to others in the same way
Did Trump mention the tornadoes in Mississippi at the rally last night? I was watching it and got interrupted but don't remember hearing him say anything about it. Surely someone cares..
Yes he did. Did you watch? He said it at the beginning, right off the bat. As is appropriate.
There was company so I missed bits here and there. Couldn't tell them to shut up like I wanted to.
Huh, this is kind of a random interesting read. I haven't seem much with McQueen. I thought Bullitt was very boring and remember nothing about it other than the legendary car chase scene. And he's famous in car circles for "Le Mans." But it turns out he sounds like he was a real tit.
The part about the Towering Inferno is amazing. Like anyone remembers that turd. I actually thought it was made-for-TV but that turns out not to be the case LOL.
Edit: Some are young enough to not know about/remember this genre. It included things like Airport, Airport '79 (yes a sequel)(no this is not the Airplane movies that parodied this shit), Fire, Earthquake, Bug (I am not making this up)....
The Kentucky Fried Movie nailed it with this parody of the genre.
Towering Inferno was the first English movie I watched and I will never forget it.
I tried watching it again decades later, and realising what a crappy movie it was, lol.
First English language? or first British film?
Are you not a native (English speaker), BB?
Also, I really am not kidding:
"An earthquake releases a strain of mutant cockroaches with the ability to start fires, which proceed to cause destructive chaos in a small town. The studies carried out by scientist James Parmiter, however, reveal an intent with much more far-reaching consequences."
Edit: I didn't remember anything like "mutant cockroaches" (yum) but now that I read this, the fire part I did actually remember, since that was how the little shits wreaked their havoc.
This is what happens when a half assed Cabal wannabe does not understand symbolism. Someone must have figured out that big things are being planned with "Bugs" but didnt realise its viruses. So they probably floated this comm looking for funding for cockroaches (which is how symbolic comms work btw)
Duly noted, though I'm inclined to think this tier of movie, there's not this kind of thinking involved. More like "ok we've done burning buildings, airplanes, fires, earthquakes...shit, anyone got anything?"
🙏Prayer Garden Podcast Episode 9: Pastor Daniel Nelms (Lead Pastor at Immanuel DE)🙏
Great episode with the lead pastor at my church. If u feel called to ministry I strong encourage you to watch this one. Even if u don't, lots of great things were discussed. Thanks for all your love and support
So Vietnamese lady friend fried up some quail yesterday evening (served with steamed rice* and a sauce) - first time I've had it. MMMMMM.
*Interestingly, as it turns out, there are circular mesh cloths that fit bamboo steamers for this purpose.
five spice quail?
BTW I think this got set back to "Top" instead of "New" for the comments.
Yeah, I have been fixing it like 3 times today. I think this time it sticking.
Not sure if it has a name or what. She fried it in peanut oil with some chopped onion thrown in too, and the sauce was some kind of brown stuff - I was not paying attention this time but probably some oyster, soy, maybe some fish sauce (I've discovered "Megachef" is really good Vietnamese FS flavor profile without the cost and supporting communists of Red Boat - it's made in Thailand but def Vietnamese style - though MC does have a stronger smell that some object to - wimps IMO).
She also made a salad with some kind of sesame oil dressing that was just to die for. I'm pretty fond of this gal I can tell you that.
that sounds good & reminds me I should get a steamer, love vegetables and rice.
Turns out my old crappy bamboo steamer doesn't seal quite well enough for this rice cooking method, so I finally have an excuse to upgrade it to a nicer one LOL.
If there's H-Marts where you are they have nice well-made ones.
thanks! we dont have stores like that so this will be fun to try & looks like i can order online. different gadgets/new recipes, keep me on track & something to look forward to.
A couple of nights ago I saw in a dream some black ducklings. They were in a box on a sort of wooden stand, not on the ground. I was so struck by the fact that they were BLACK because I'd never seen a black mallard before. There were 3 or 4 very young ones and one that was a little older and bigger but still quite small and young. Some of them had a little bright white feather poking out of their pitch black feathers near the base of their wings.
For all y'all who believe God speaks to us through dreams, this is what I believe this represented: The enemy is planning a handful of black swan events, but they've been infiltrated by white hats. Their SWANS are going to turn out to be more like small baby DUCKS, launched prematurely and with little power. Perhaps still causing some problems, but nothing like what the enemy wanted or intended. One event will be bigger than the others, but even that one will be ineffectual.
Have a great Sunday! :D
He really does love to work through dreams and visions. What a blessing of a gift you’ve been given. Thanks for sharing friend.
What a great dream. I absolutely believe that God gives us dreams to interpret of what is ahead. Many years ago I had a real powerful dream. I woke up terrified. Years later I was living that dream, and God reminded of what he had showed me. I was in a spiritual battle for the life of my daughter that was 3 at the time.
Genchat so quiet today.
Good. We all need time off.
Not an endorsement of their racist asses but
TURN IT UP
BRING THE NOISE
I agree I think I’m going to take some time off myself. I’ve had a lot of blackpill moments, negative comments, and overall sadness. I went back through and deleted a bunch of comments, because I was ashamed of myself. Have a great Sunday. God bless all of my friends here. I’m doing everyone a small favor by leaving for a little while.
Just remember. This may be how it starts, but it's not how it finishes!
Process the pills, and find the love. CU soon.
WWG1WGA Fren! ♥️
Hang in there, fren! WRWY! Take some time to rest and restore! Then come back refreshed! God bless you!
Don’t be too hard on yourself
Time off? What's that? 😃
I dunno. I heard about it once. I thought maybe I should try it.
It seems Microsoft has deleted all emails dating back to 2019- mid 2020. That correspondence you had with work, refusing to employ you because you are unvaxxed….gone. Anyone else experiencing this?
This is just one user "Debbie" who ambiguously claims she's lost her email. And she doesn't clarify how, why, anything.
Now I'm not putting it past Big Tech to simultaneously "lose" all relevant cloud backups, but this isn't showing that at all.
Ah, it seems that someone thought that emails remain "on the cloud".
I've been using email since about 1991 and I still have every single message on my hard drive (which is backed up to another hard drive) and also archives in another building.
The answer is to keep everything on an external drive AND keep a running copy of that drive (or two). That provides reasonable insurance against loss.
If you communicate via a smart phone and/or tablet, that complicates life a little but there are still methods of copying to a backup device. Of course, you can use cloud services as well, for convenience, but don't use cloud INSTEAD of a backup in your own home or office.
Pardon my lack of tech knowledge, but how does one back up email?
It depends on how you run your email server. If you are using one of the standard softwares available on a Linux server, for instance, you can backup the spool folder where the emails are stored (and you can configure where that folder is).
Aha, that answers it... I just have regular email, not a server🐸
Install an email "client" App on your computer and give it the required parameters to handle your email instead of using a web browser. The email App will then save all emails to your computer.
My son and I went to the Trump Rally in Waco, Texas today!! It was so much fun! I cried when his plane flew in..I cried when he got off the plane, I cried when he started speaking. How people can not see what he is doing is so very beyond me! Such a great man!
I am envious. One day I would love to be in a Trump Rally!
Pile in!! We will take you with us!!
Good for you. I had wanted to watch it live but I was needed to take care of my 2 year old grand baby. So all my attention was on him. I do the same thing, I cry every time I see him. I’m so grateful that God gave him to us. Many do not realize what he is doing to protect us. But we know! ❤️🙏🏻🇺🇸
THANK GOD WE KNOW!!!! I get so upset about my mom. She will not listen to me at all. Meaning she just tells me to be quiet. Will not let me talk about it at all. This young man was standing next to me and just crying with his head in his shirt. It was quite humbling.
Do you think maybe your Mom is scared? So she thinks if she doesn’t talk about it things will go away. My sweet Mother asks me questions and I try to be explain it to her, but she keeps thinking that we are at the end of time. I was showing her the protests in France . She said there it is Rumors of wars”. I said no Mama it’s a protest, it’s a good thing. But she is 81 after all. ❤️
My mom is 77 and looks and acts 38. She is what I call a Barbie Girl. I think that she thinks that Trump has cheated on women and she just does not like him. She will NOT listen to anything. She can not stand Biden, but she does not like Trump. She could care less about politics. She just thinks I am nuts.
Well we all have made mistakes in our lives. I have to always look back at David in the Bible. He also cheated but was forgiven. He was a man after Gods own heart. America doesn’t need a perfect pastor, we need a man that will fight hell and all it’s demons to save our country and our children. Just pray for her eyes to be opened to see the truth. ❤️
EXACTLY!! I was telling my son that we all make mistakes and learn from them. It is if we don't learn from them that is the problem. President Trump is a true leader! He loves America. We have needed a man like him for a very long time! :-)
I always say that I am a product of the choices I have made, the good, the bad and most definitely the ugly. I thank God every morning that he didn’t give up on me and that I share my mistakes in hopes of helping others.
We were there too! It was awesome!
AND SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!! I was in line for 3 hours (which was fun talking with everyone). Then, when we got in, my son wanted to get in line to get something to drink. I told him, "Oh hell NO!" LOL I was NOT going to wait in line again!! LOL>
it was very hot. Honestly, though, we showed up about 5 pm and waited about 15 min through the line, then stood at the flight line and waited for the plane, then listened to most of the speech and scooted. I was so impressed with the crowd. So well behaved.
LOL! I told my son that next time we are not going to get there until 5. YOU did the right thing. I wanted to stay and listen to Trump more, but I was so hot and tired. The plane coming in was so awesome! I was VERY impressed with the crowd. They were very quiet the whole day. It was almost strange.
He’s back!!!!! And he was on fire! So glad you had a great time with Trump and your son- I’m sure it was uplifting to be in such a huge crowd, chanting and clapping and singing together- USA!!🇺🇸🐸
YES YES YES YES!! I love love love loved it!! I can not stop talking about it!!
I’m so jel
That would be so much fun for all of the GAW to get together and go to one. I just cried I was so touched!
