• Best running clothes for cool and cold weather?

    Started running recently after having several heart attacks-- mainly walking for now but doing about 5 miles a day-- getting cooler, wondering what people recommend for pants/shirts that are warm below 40 degrees F and breathe- I sweat easy with long sleeves- just wear shorts and mesh shirt at 60 degrees and I am warm. Thanks

  • Trying to find the name of a beach I went to in either Maui or the Big Island-think it was the Big Island.?

    Beach was black sand, very popular spot with lots of parking, and featured a little cave inside one of the large boulders that you could walk thru. Any help is appreciated, can't seem to find it on any of the maps but was a popular beach.

I enjoy answering questions and helping people but this new Yahoo format is a total disaster and despite the thousands of responses against it they refused to go back to the working version.

JC Penney's scream commercial back in February where all the actresses screamed repeatedly was probably the worst. Do you have any you hate? On the other hand, i always turn up a JD Wentworth commercial because it is funny and entertaining!

  • Anyone else turn off Revolution after just a few minutes?

    Thought I'd check out the new series but it came across lamer and more predictable than Terra Nova. Seems to be a poorer version of Jericho. I quit after the first 14 minutes, wonder if anyone else has already given up on it?

  • Robert Taylor on Longmire looks a lot like a popular TV actor in the 70s?

    The guy who plays Longmire on the show of the same name, Robert Taylor-- he reminds me of an actor that was in lots of shows in the 70s and 80s. Bugging me who he favors strongly-- wondering if anyone has any suggestions of who the old actor was.

So would he be considered a cult leader then? There is such a stigma attached to cults and cult leaders, makes me wonder if people really value religious views much these days. My own guess is no, given his lead in most polls.

    My old prescription from 2 yrs ago was: OD - 12.00 -150 x 042 OS -11.50 -175 x 158 +150 My new one is: OD - 11.50 -150 x 042 OS -11,25 -150 x 158 +225 I can tell I can't see as well as I was, and he did my exam and said as much, saying I needed to increase it slightly. But from what I see, he reduced my prescription instead of increasing it as I expected. That is, unless the difference in the prescription is not as I perceive it. Certainly welcome anyone with optician experience to comment, as you can see I am functionally blind, and my glasses take 2 to 3 weeks to make and usually 3 or 4 tries before they are "right". So want to make sure my Ophthalmologist didn't write down the new prescription incorrectly. Last time I had glasses made, the optician after several tries was frustrated and called my doctor. They agreed on a change to the prescription though I never actually saw what that was. Since it was over the phone, not sure if the Dr's office noted the change for last time. The nurse did put in my prescription on the phoropter when I came in, and she did the initial ballpark test. He came in and said it looked like I didn't need a new prescription, I said I had to have one anyway since I have a huge scratch on my Lens. That was when he did the complete exam and said I did need to slightly increase it. (as I certainly could tell anyway). So just wondering if he was basing his whole analysis on the old, incorrect prescription from the beginning and whether I should go back to him or my old optometrist instead to get a second opinion. Thanks!

    The article out today says: " A new survey of Americans' knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths. Forty-five percent of Roman Catholics who participated in the study didn't know that, according to church teaching, the bread and wine used in Holy Communion is not just a symbol, but becomes the body and blood of Christ." More than half of Protestants could not identify Martin Luther as the person who inspired the Protestant Reformation. And about four in 10 Jews did not know that Maimonides, one of the greatest rabbis and intellectuals in history, was Jewish." As a person who has no religious beliefs who has studied religion extensively, I wasn't surprised other than by the high percentages.

  • Does anyone else hate the volkswagon commercial?

    I'm talking the violent one, where everyone hits somebody else when they see a volkswagon. I have to wonder if this is a german thing, being ok with promoting violence. I know the game is played by kids in the US, but not very often. But adults certainly don't.

Always wondered what explanations people might have, or if there are other contradicting passages in the bible that say it is only 2 days. The passage I quoted was from Luke.

  • Why do some catholics pray to saints and Mary besides God and Jesus?

    I've seen it denied on here before that many catholics who appear to be praying to this or that saint aren't really "praying" to that person, they are somehow praying through them.

    I've seen it denied on here before that many catholics who appear to be praying to this or that saint aren't really "praying" to that person, they are somehow praying through them. Today in an article on Pope John Paul II, it said, "The next step will be the recognition of a miracle attributed to John Paul. It involves a French nun who was inexplicably cured of Parkinson's disease after praying to him." This certainly appears to be confirmation that the church recognizes that saints are some sort of diety if they can perform miracles when prayed to. I'm not criticizing the practice, just wondering what the discrepancy is on this issue.

What I can't understand is how do people listen to this guy and not admit that he is not speaking for mainstream america?

  • Why do people pray in thanks for their own safety in disasters when others have been killed or maimed?

    In watching the initial reports on Haiti, I am struck by the comments from the various missionaries and others who describe how many people are giving thanks for their survival of the quake- while apparently dead bodies are all around. This seems to happen in many disasters-- how does one explain praying for thanks for being alive when so many others are dead or trapped in wreckage? I know many believe this is all part of all their god's design, but how can people accept that their friends and family are killed under their god's plan, while they are left only injured or unharmed and that is just something the god has "designed"? Just something I never could understand at all. You can't say all those killed or injured were evil and of the devil (though I have had some fundamentalists actually say that) or that all those saved were those worthy of god, since many of them are stealing and looting and often in these instances take financial advantage of those in dire straits by price gouging. Though I don't understand either why a sports team prays to their god to let them "beat" the other team. Why would that be in their god's scheme of things?
