Did you know that some ancient Egyptian mummies have blond or red hair?
Opinion:

Yes, there has been much controversy about the origins and ethnicities of the "Old Egyptians".

Many experts refer(red) to the "Fertile Crescent" and the "Mediterranean" populations, further to the different cultures around the Mediterranean, their history, relations, trades, wars, migrations, including records from the Bible, from Ancient Greek and Roman literature, etc.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean_race

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blond

Citing:

A number of blonde naturally mummified bodies of common people (i.e. not proper mummies) dating to Roman times have been found in the Fag el-Gamous cemetery in Egypt. "Of those whose hair was preserved 54% were blondes or redheads, and the percentage grows to 87% when light-brown hair color is added."[52] Excavations have been ongoing since the 1980s. Burials seem to be clustered by hair-colour.[53]

Could The USA (And Perhaps Other Countries) Do Better With Consensus-Style Government?
Opinion: I am afraid that in many countries - not only North America, mentalities, beliefs, superstitions and standards did not evolve sufficiently, and those who have the power and the wealth will do everything to maintain their privileges.

The lower and - increasingly the middle classes - growing aware of the many ignored dark sides of human history, or blinded by fake and massive propaganda, are losing their faith in politics, economy, religions, morality, justice, legislation and leaders.

The system sounds fairer than a party (or multi-party) based system, as, in spite of former ideals and their defense of the groups and interests of larger parts of populations, which/whom they were expected to represent, they seem(ed) to miss their aims repeatedly, and, depending on leaders, teams, supporters, sponsors, trends, politics and economic situations, they evolve(d) and change(d), often with negative consequences.

Additionally, warfare, terrorism, organised crime, environmental depletion and plundering are still a major threat to all the world.

Yes, a consensus government might be a good idea, but like with many, more egalitarian programmes, they need to find suitable teams for every key and supporting function, open the dialogue, and aim at sustainable issues; additionally, there must be more control from neutral boards or commissions:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consensus_government

But interests vary and the powerful trade, elite or financial groups and parties will seek dominance at all cost, instead of switching to fairer practices.

Also religious and philosophical ideologies should review their interpretations of values, obedience and devotion, and put an end to intolerance, superstitions, extremism, stereotyping, discrimination, shaming, hate-mongering, prejudice, witch-hunts, etc., all the more that too many of their leaders and representatives were seldom showing the "good example".

Like in smallest groups or relationships, there will always be conflicting interests, frustations and disappointments, as nobody is perfect, if we refer, for instance, to teams, partnerships and relationships:

About Me

Right now? Fighting with a


Lack of Inspiration

Empty sheets await the writer,
but the brain does not get brighter;
with a lack of concentration,
there is no sole illustration.

Noting and crossing out the verbs,
and trying out some tea with herbs;
yet, there is no inspiration
worthy for a celebration.

Searching for ideas to bloom
paces may help, across the room;
the mental emptiness persists,
in spite of how much one insists.

The study of the grammar book
causes the brain to sweat and cook;
writing down what troubles the mind
incites the anger to go blind.

Another try with exercise,
ideas are dull and not concise;
the bad temper blows a gasket
and fills the waste-paper basket.

Strolling throughout the countryside
in the period of Whitsuntide
spreads a feeling of sweet delight,
awakes the thoughts with blissful light …

The story takes a distinct shape
surrounded by the bright landscape,
relief comforts the doubtful heart,
fantasy is ready to start.

Hi Marianne : I don't know any other sites that Virginia is on but you might reach her through this : [email protected] . Yes, I've been able to log in just fine. Give her a note and see what she says. I've talked to her through that before. Good luck!

Oops - we are having a technical mess here; we both need to ask for help.
I tried to answer on your wall, after I woke up - very late today, as a lot went on while I was sleeping.
The chat box was empty ...
Ladyhorse, all I can recommend is to write (or draft) your messages on a document (note pad, etc.), which you can save on a data carrier (USB stick, etc.) and on your own computer (off-line), and then pasting them on or into the corresponding on-line box; if the message does not get through, or if your programme crashes, you can try later, as your text has been saved.

I know, it slows you down, but I have no other solution to propose right now, and I also tend to forget to save texts.

I hope that in spite of all these troubles, you could take a good rest.

Finally the "chat" window came up so I typed you a message and hit "Enter". Walked out in the kitchen to take care of dishes and start the dishwasher...came back but my message still did not get posted. Something is just not right...   :-(
May 14 by Ladyhorse
When I click your avatar in the window to bring up the chat window, computer freezes and I have to leave the site. I come back but cannot reply to any posts...page keeps freezing. I can't even   :-(  ???  Could not open my notifications and now looks like they've been removed??
May 14 by Ladyhorse
I am communicating here because I am having a real hard time trying to bring up the "chat" window. The computer keeps freezing, I restarted it once and have to leave the site and come back to get in here.

Sorry, I misunderstood you. Don't worry.
Nobody is perfect.

By the way, there have been very upsetting news about ransomware attacks, and that concerns us all.
Dan has transmitted the alert. If you need technical advice for your computer and your on-line connections, please ask Dan for advice about how to protect your data.

Here's some news:

I really think you misunderstood...I'm not looking for any medical advice...I was trying to explain why I should not keep sitting for lengthy periods of time but sometimes I push myself anyway because I'm trying to finish something.

Unfortunately from multiple head traumas I have decreased inhibition.  I tend to get too friendly and trust too much.  I confide way too much,  get betrayed and feel like I've had the wind knocked out of me.
May 13 by Ladyhorse
O.K., the message on the wall worked. Now, regarding the technical problem, Dan can arrange that. As to the medical problem, I must ask for an expert's advice, as I don't know what's better for you. Thank you for being patient.
