    Do you make them on special occassions like the New Year? I do. I also make them on my birthday, (which is in a couple of days).

    I'm going to take on my most challenging behavior. My own negative speech. That will change my involvement with the forum.

    My wife has bought me an expensive timer, that sounds like a Tibetan meditation bell. Quite pleasing sound. I'm going to set it for ten minute increments with the goal of keeping my speech kind and respectful in ten minute increments.

    I will be avoiding the Flame Zone and taking care to not get hooked on anyone's bait.

    I'm dropping the topics of homosexuality and Christianity. I removed my avie because someone complained about it.

    I'm not going to re-hash any old posting issues with members. This is a new beginning.

    No lesbo lip interlocking avies?

    No more simply fascinating threads on SkyFi's odd perspective on all those homosexual Christians?

    What is to become of USMB?

    Whatever.

    I never took umbrage at any pictures of pretty women engaged in a smooch.

    And, if you have some almost compulsive need or desire to talk about Christians, Christianity or comparisons between "those" people and the pure, wholesome and noble Buddhists, I have never been troubled by that. Indeed, candidly, I am not particularly religious. I don't usually even glance at such threads unless my attention is directed to it for one reason or another.

    But, when you make your standard grandiose pronouncements, it does tend to amuse me.

    Being amused is a wonderful thing.

    Amusing others is terrific.

    That should be your aspiration.

    And you should talk about it.

    A lot.

    Ok, I think it's amusing to have a timer that sounds like a Tibetan bell, set up by your computer to ring every ten minutes, don't you?

    It's it amusing to confess every night to how you screwed up, do purification practices and set a fresh intention? It's hilarious.

    "It's it amusing to confess every night to how you screwed up, do purification practices and set a fresh intention? It's hilarious."

    :lmao:

    You have no idea how funny that is.

    Unintentional humor is often amongst the funniest kind.
