Re: Canoe or Kayak - You Decide!

It seems that with the clubs above that the word canoe is used more generally to mean both canoe and kayak? Or even more generally, "paddlecraft" as they also call out paddle-boards on which one stands. Another generality that tends to distinguish canoes from kayaks (other than the watertight skirt...

Now, at 67, I play 'mix-and-match' with skirts, kilts, hose, tights, shorts, long pants, t- shirts, just about anything as long as I feel comfortable with it and, in my opinion, looks good...
And all that can be said about that is bravo!

Re: Postman or Mailman

Canoe vs. kayak... Both terms are used in US vernacular, with both having long histories in the New World. The Canoe was very widely used by fur-trappers and traders in the northern tier of the US and throughout Canada during the late 17th to early 19th centuries. It's a fair-weather sort of boat th...

Re: Postman or Mailman

Offhand, I use both terms pretty much interchangeably, although I do have a preference for "putting something in the post" over "mailing something". Everybody around here knows both terms so there's no hindrance to communication. The "non-sexist" formal term here in the US seems to be "letter carrie...

Re: Colourful skirts

I was lucky enough to get the material to make one. the colour alternates between deep brown and dark blue, depending on the angle you look at it. I've never worn it because every colour of top that I have will clash with one or the other colour. Try either hot white or dark black. Both are monochr...

Re: Colourful skirts

Colourful skirts are one of life's great joys and need to be appreciated more. Colour-shifting ones are even more amazing. It's a pity they're getting rare.

Re: It's all about "sex"

Threads don't need to be locked all the time. It doesn't actually solve anything. Jenn is correct in this regard. What's missing is that if the moderators caved to every whinge about posts then positively nothing of any substance will get any attention. The decision to lock or not rests solely with...

Re: It's all about "sex"

I have no clue about the quoting on this one so I'm just going to try and do my best... So you agree with the media companies censoring things that are said. Here is where it starts where does it end who makes the decision as to what can be said Ideally the individual in question would know the diff...

Re: More Comebacks

"The real question is why don't you wear a skirt" (if the person is not currently wearing one) I was at a gathering of friends yesterday in a town to my north, and I was wearing my blue minidress with lattice-work black knee-high stockings and red 2" heels, and it went over very well with the women...

Re: It's all about "sex"

Its the left that demands blind obedience to what they are demanding.

as far as causing unity just look at the Café I have united just about the entire site against me and my political opinions.

Re: More Comebacks

The longer I wear skirts in public the less convinced I become that quick "comebacks" are required. If hard pressed a rejoinder of, "And why not ?" ought to do, and if that's not enough merely bring up the comfort factor. Youngsters can be fun, and I still chuckle when I recall the girl who was furt...

People do not do the field work as a result they ending believing what they read the most of. If all you hear is left wing bias garbage eventually you will believe it.

Re: It's all about "sex"

The problem is that the "Facts "that you are reading are reported in a manor that supports the bias of the media that is presenting them. The nice thing about facts is that they tend to have lives of their own and stand erect on their own irrespective of the editorial dross surrounding them. One ca...
