Ahhh... :smart:MoparMom wanted her own little slice of the site with down to earth type topics. Home issues, family issues etc. Maybe a place where the wifes of the owners could get together. Etc. General Conv. is just your every day bar crowd and hang out...I'll get MoparMom on to respond...

:ahhh: AH! Don't do that! I know she is your boss and all, but I don't want her to be mine, too! :lmao: Okay, yea, I kind of figured thats how it worked. Sometimes I get confused where to put my off-topic threads though...

If the 'Mod God' moves it, it was in the wrong place. After my co-admin & myself reorganized the boards on our MS site the members became so good at choosing where things go... very rarely do we move anything any more. The old Mod moved things every day & folks couldn't find their threads... but some think he was on a power trip!! LOL!! He was the GOD Mod!

Ok, now you did it....you want to know the difference between the sites...here goes! When we began Mike & I were filming the countryside, places to eat, things to see, etc. It was a pretty world to share....and them this taddered ball we live on started getting torn to shreds and kicked around by a lot of unsavory men. The world went upside down in a short span of time and people began to have to make very serious changes in their life styles. A deep sadness fell upon the world and confusion reigned. I did not feel it was appropriate to act as if I didn't know or care about these things. We were all being tossed in a blender and my God what a mess we were told to drink. I'm not getting into a political debate here...but I sure as hell would like to scream my head off about the wrong we are being subjected too! These changes effected my town, my community and myself. Michael has not told you some of the things we have been doing....he kinda lumps things under the banner of 'having to go to Boise shopping" or some other heading. But in reality we have been running to keep a steady supply of food going into the Food Bank/Pantry at Donnley, Id. We get the rv and run down to get 25 lbs of potatoes, rice, beans, flour...the bulky items. Then these are put in smaller servings such as 3 lbs of flour in a coffee tin, 3 cups of rice in a ziplock bag, and so on and so forth. This is now transported to Donnley and distributed to the people between 9-12 am every Tuesday.. This is on going and continuous cycle. The increase on a weekly basis would stun you all right out of any comfort zone you may have. It is heartbreaking. So when Michael says we have to go shopping.....we really are...but for others. Now at the same time we have a dear friend that needed our help. She is a super lady that had the misfortune of have a husband that got caught up on Face Book...sought a divorce, moved out of state and threw away 36 years of marriage. It devastated her and family. This lady has a job that she works 6 days a week....and she is deaf. Michael and I became her ears and began to help her with her divorce. We went to visit her attorney, we typed the declarations, answers, and took her to see her attorney on a Sunday morning so she could go one on one with him. The joy of filming the country by ways was put on hold while we helped out our neighbors. Now toss in the fact that the guest cottage got flooded, and you can see the Lighter Side just got heavy. I'm here and I do keep my eyes on the happenings of the site. I miss communicating with all of you, but I have to help out in my canyon. Understand that I love you all and pray for you daily. Love MoparMom

Like myself I took off today and ran down the road and helped a local neighbor with A/C problems on her car. She has a very limited income and can't afford to really go to a shop and have it repaired. So I took it upon myself take my tools and go down to her house and work on it and get it straighten out for her.

:lol: For some reason, you two remind of the movie Rango...I sure can respect the actions you guys are taking to support your neighbors! Way to go on looking out for your community. Cohesion in times like these are important! Big Kudos to you guys for even being capable of doing what you can do!I sure would like to see you on here more often moparmom. Makes me feel a little :ashamed: that the only time I ever got to talk with you is when I told my bigfoot story! :cookoo:

I thank you for the kind words...they are much appreciated. The question still remains to be answered about where is the Lighter Side going in this day and age? This is something Mike and I have discussed and I want to toss it out to you all to ponder, advise, concur and find a proper direction. My thoughts are gearing me to the preparedness theme since people are making so many life-changes. Now bear with me in this as I try to explain myself. Flagman Russ (love him and Shelia) has a club/recreational activity that puts him out in the wilderness doing things the old fashion way. He steps back in time. This is the beauty of it all, they do the cooking/camping in a rustic manner. Russ is a treasure-trove of information in that regard, and I like to tap his head on this one. The whole idea of a simple life ...getting along with less...is an achievement for us all. By the way Russ - remember when I said I wanted to get that camp fire ring, and cookout set up for doing the cast iron pots and pans? Well it was all made, welded and brought down to me by a wonderful welder in New Meadows and it is super. Spray painted it black and we're in business. Now direction-wise here we're not just talking about cooking out, we're looking at supplies. You ask, "Why am I thinking on this line?" Well, take a peek at the BalticDryIndex.com on a daily basis. This is transportation. This is import/exports. If we're not producing it and we're not shipping it, we in deep caca! If you don't believe this than order a case of Charmins cause you'r full of_____. We are in serious trouble. I just checked with my financial consultant in Texas and the fundamentals remain the same.....no jobs...no production. Nothing has changed that. Think about this and tell me what and how you would like to proceed. I'd like Russ' feed back on this as well. I know Wild&Free has some thoughts on the subject.

I agree with you on your thoughts. Although, I think we oughtta start another thread on that subject. I would be more than willing to contribute to that pool of info. I have wanted to talk about this sort of thing with you guys for a while, but never seemed to get the vibe that is what people were interested in talking about... So I kept me pie hole shut.. :wink:

Hex run your ideas by me and for the sake of everyone else. I need the feed-back from the members and you can start a new thread if you wish. I also was thinking on the lines of shopping where the wives of members can let other in their state know about bargains they have run into. We post truck supplies, why no ecomize on the family grocery tab as well. Just thoughts in preparness. Mom

Well Mom, I thinks that is more than I have heard you say the whole time I have been here,at least more empahtic and colorful than what I have read from you in the past. I have been trying simpify my life for the past 5 years and all I have seemed to acomplish is to make it more complicated. Always seem to make my moves a little late. I am at this time a very big believer in less is more. I wish I had been thinking that 5 years ago. Hope you dont mind me calling you Mom, mine passed about 8 years ago and it is nice having someone who aint that much differant from Emily. Nest time I call, maybe you will answer and we can talk about Mike again.:cookoo:

Alright, so I'm unsure of exactly what you wanna cover, but here it is: NEXT!
