Tuesday November 21st – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    In the wrong hands this could be a serious problem, not that there is much that can be done to stop it. Its worth bearing in mind though, how precarious your information is.

    Well, a while back I finally went to get a new eyeglass prescription, and new glasses. It’s been too long… The progressive lenses are twice what I remember them costing,, two pair of glasses seemed incredibly expensive, even getting modest frames. The sun glass ones just did not work, I could not adjust to the curved lens (or something) so the eyeglass place took them back and gave me a pair of really cool Ray Bans…. same price… Just trying them out made me feel like 20 years younger.

      It’s my view that so-called “progressive” lenses are about as “progressive” as the progzis who use the term to disguise fascism. I tried those CFs and holy carp, ‘spensive and no peripheral vision! And people wear those things to walk around in public and worse–to drive??!!

      NOLA is da winna an’ still champeen at blind intersections and crazy drivers–it’s one of the things I love about the place–like driving in Rome–minimal rules, maximum speed (except for the dayum speed cameras now). But you’ve gotta pray without ceasing and use your peripheral vision to the max–glance both ways, then back to the direction of closest approaching traffic, then rely on peripheral vision to be sure someone doesn’t just come out of nowhere as you micro drag race across the intersection. No can do with “progressives.” Drove me back to contacts, which are much better in every way, anyway–much improved since the last time I had ’em, maybe 10 years ago.

        dayall…I’m thinking, after reading your piece, that the negative thing w/progressives may have to do with trying them after your brain has adjusted to whatever type of lenses it has adjusted to.
        I have never worn anything but progressive lenses, and I have never had a bit of trouble with them.
        I do a lot of eye work, reading, writing, computer, lots of drawing, and having the various correction spread across an entire lens makes it much less tiring for me than having a correction only on a sm space of a lens.
        I also hike and take a lot of pictures (am aware of my surroundings), and I have no less peripheral vision than before my vision was corrected.
        Also drive a lot, have even done racing, and have no such feeing re loss of peripheral acuity.
        Issues may have a bit to do with individual eyes.
        And I do know that some who have tried to switch have had issues if not motivated to work through initial oddities.
        A close friend switched, and it took ab 72 hrs for her brain to adjust to new patterns of perception. And she is glad she was patient.

          That’s my experience piper. First time I tried progressives, after thirty years of wearing normal glasses, it took me three days to get used to them and could dare walking around outside the house without risking staggering around like a drunk. Since then, over fifteen years, I’ve had no problems, although when I get a new pair, I don’t wear them until I get home in case I fall down the stairs outside the opticians. No problems with peripheral vision. I think they’re great.

        An alternative name is “varifocals”, for those of us who want to disassociate ourselves from things “progressive” (yet another word whose meaning has been distorted by Newspeak).

      My glasses have cost $350 to $400 for the last 20 years. So, try to make the ones I have last as long as I can manage. Unfortunately, as I have gotten older my eyes change more each year……………..and my income doesn’t.

      My sister an BIL have a flock of wild turkeys which Tracey feeds…calls them in each AM, and tosses out cracked corn.
      So, when they are looking to mate, the turkeys parade all over their property, and put on a grand show.
      Asked BIL one yr if they ever thought of offing one for Thanksgiving, and he said, Tracey would never talk to him again. said she practically names them all…he also said they are exceptionally smart and savvy.
      Remember, Benjamin Franklin wanted the wild turkey to be our National Bird! Even though there must have been many reasons why he thought so, I am Certainly Glad he lost on that account.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
