hey, cosmicbadger that sounds like fun. i think, you know, don't throw anything on the court. let's see, when they make a shot, i think thats 2 points, unless they have three point shots in int'l play, in which case if they are far enough away, and behind the "three point line" when they shoot, that's three points. a foul shot is one point. then you just try to end up with more points than the other team. do you care who wins? if not, you can just appreciate the gracefulness and athleticism of the players, and give good wishes that everybody does their best and has a safe game. but if you're rooting for one side or another, well, hoot and holler, you should be hoarse by the end! when i'm invited to a sports event, i just usually try to enjoy the company i'm with, cause who wins, i could care less. but i still love the beauty of sport. if both teams really really want to win, then the game takes on all sorts of levels and nuances, that all comes down to how you "use the clock" at the end. the team that wants to win the most will generally find a way to break down the other teams teamwork, while sustaining their own team unity. if both are equally matched, the team that plays as a team, not a collection of individuals will usually prevail. it's a beautiful thing to see. enjoy , andy

probably just don't scream je-r-r-r-r-r-y during the quiet moments and you'll be fine :)
Tomorrow night I am invited to watch an international basketball match between Macedonia and Estonia. I have never played basketball and have never attended a basketball match and never paid much attention to the sport. I would appreciate any useful advice that would help me with this new experience and ensure I do not embarrass my hosts. Thank you
was just referring to the phrase "God, country,family" .
religious beliefs are supposed to be matters of personal preference, not public policy.
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
If the Republicans new motto is "country first". What place does God come in?
Money...Greed...We live in an information society, not a wisdom society, and the information that is being pumped out of the combine is meant to keep you dazed and confused and scared. There is no path to peace and love. Love is the path. Turn on...not about dope, but turning on to our place in the universal scheme of things. Tune in...to the etheric energy of the cosmos, which is all around you all the time. Inexhaustabe and intelligent. Teach youself and everyone you meet to be kind. Counteract negativity whenever you can and feed your indomitable spirit.
"Saint stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes, Country garden in the wind and the rain, Wherever he goes the people all complain.
Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline. Did it matter, does it now? stephen would answer if he only knew how. Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell, Hell halfway twixt now and then, Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again.
Lady finger, dipped in moonlight, writing what for? across the morning sky. Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer, darkness shrugs and bids the day good-bye.
Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow, What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned. Several seasons with their treasons, Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own. Did he doubt or did he try? answers aplenty in the bye and bye, Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills, One man gathers what another man spills.
Saint stephen will remain, all hes lost he shall regain, Seashore washed by the suds and foam, Been here so long, hes got to calling it home.
Fortune comes a crawlin, calliope woman, spinnin that curious sense of your own. Can you answer? yes I can. but what would be the answer to the answer man?"
What size does a photo have to be , I downloaded some fan photos and when I submiited them, they resized them, so when they showed up they were super small, so I deleted them, so I could resize them myself. So what size should a photo be??????
and there was I imagining the GD playing in the barn of Little House on the Prairie!
when one of us commented that the band was "outstanding in their field". Common sense would demand Field Houses, from that perspective, henseforth.
"If the forms of this world die, which is more real, the me that dies or the me that's infinite? Can I trust my habitual mind, or do I need to learn to look beneath those things?"
