Yippy!!!...


Dude deserves a case of DONUTS!!!...



Of course without dates and such...

for all ANYONE here besides Fattrad knows...

He could have donated that money before the bet...



Hopefully that isn't the case...

Kudos to his Fatness

Just shows the 1% can save a lot of money living in his mom's basement ;-)

Somehow I knew this thread would be about Fatty.

It was his call, but I wish he would have blacked out his TAX ID numbers and address (but perhaps it's his office).

Funds to good use....

Maybe I'm being a dickwad here...

But I don't for sure believe 100% that he has in fact made NEW contributions...

I know that he donates (or so people say he does)...

but unless I can see dates as PROOF that these are NEW, with all of his LYING and such, well,...


Shoot me for having DOUBT!!!...

But he should still stay off this site. Can't buy me love.

Interesting. . . a friend and I were just discussing the dismay attached to people who bring nothing to the table that money can't buy.

No joy.

No sweetness.

No laughter.

No love.

Just something they bought and paid for; believing, wholeheartedly, that that's enough.

Dismay.

hey there say, jaybro and all...

i don't know all the 'what happens' as the 'don't get along'ers'
here... i just always hope and pray that folks sort it out
and keep our quilt sewed, to be a to its best potential for
all the climbers here...

you all really belong together...

well i just said that to say this:
i may not know what this is about, but i do know this, as
i come from a big family and have four kids, and now see the
grandkids and step-ones:

we are ALL different... and we all belong, for various reasons
on this ol' earth...

we all have heartfelt jobs that we do...
and outreaches and even 'in-reaches'--meaning our homes,
or as 'care-givers'..

some even, as i once was, don't do much (though i get to, now)
we just shine, instead, and bloom where we are planted...


thus, knowing that we are all differnt...
here's a hope and prayer for new buffering and
smoothing of the rough edges here, so folks
will overlap better and join better in either
conversations, debates, or presenting differences...

say--we may even find that we are all a bit the SAME as well,
in areas NOT yet seen, then...


god bless to all this day...
and may we all find our ways to give, even when we can't give funds:
we can sure give love or encouragement, or--

perhaps just a friendly HANDSHAKE when we come to find a differance
that we can't handle too well...

at least it makes for a new clear field, for the
next day, :)

hey there say, ekat...

as to your post, just above...
Interesting. . . a friend and I were just discussing the dismay attached to people who bring nothing to the table that money can't buy.

No joy.

No sweetness.

No laughter.

No love.

Just something they bought and paid for; believing, wholeheartedly, that that's enough

(left the last part out, think it was, 'dismay')


WELL:
wow, i have seen that, as well:

folks that spoil kids with gifts, but never give them real time, or
the deeper love of: i am giving you time to share part of me, AND to get to know-and-relate you--that is a part that family members will never forget... (had to edit a bit, in there, that i left out)..

all the storebought stuff, to buy love that way, just amounts to a pile
of 'junk' later, when the kids turn into teenagers, and, are spoiled, and yet confused inside when they no longer get pacified... and--rightly then, as, no one knows or understand them (or what went wrong)... all everyone cares about then is: everyone is bothered and 'inconvinienced'...

right now, i am praying for some folks related to us, over that, :(

love means, giving of yourself, with the care to give what is most precious:

TIME...

saidly it is misused and horded these days, :(




*just a commercial, folks--i know i took it a bit off track,
but as to ekat's important note, but i've seen the 'principle in action' and how it's hurt families, so--it set me into:

mommy mode...

Nice one fats -yeah norton may well be a faceless troll, but you lower yourself by playing to that game including your kick in the jimmy at the bottom of a fine piece of documentation detailing how you kept your word

My comment was a reply to DMT's post. . . which is now gone. So. . .just to set the record straight, I wasn't directing that comment to Fatty, per se. . . just elaborating on "Can't buy me love."

hey there say, ekat... thanks for sharing... yeah, i did not think you had, but on the net, it is good to tie things up, so everyone can know what we were getting at--in person, it is so easy to see and know...

yep--it just reminded me of a sad situation that i am now seeing in a family, and have seen FAR too often...

so i took it as a good point to share an extra
side note:


hope i did not confuse things here...
*hence--why i added it as a commercial, :)


i love how folks share, whether in general, or in funds, or in simply a hug:

it's just that nowadays, parents are too busy to understand these
real shares, while--many in the world, without kids, SEEM to understand...

i think it is due to many hardships that we see along our trails...
being 'out of the box' and into world, we SEE more than our self...
