A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
In a larger sense, sometimes the refusal to spank a child that needs discipline...is a greater form of child abuse; because of the sorrow a spoiled, entitled attitude brings to one's life in abundance if it becomes ingrained and un-corrected.
I think the bars people went to with their fathers as kids were likely neighborhood joints or places like the Elks or American Legion, where your dad knew everyone. Not seedy places. They served the same purpose as pubs in England - your friends were there.
Hate to tell the "YOUNG VENTER" 60 is not old at all. Hopefully you will make it there one day.
I always pick up pennies. Have you heard about pennies from heaven? It brings a smile to my face everytime!
To the UnVenter that says silver coins are the only coins worth bending over for, I'm happy to pick up all of your missed blessings! You can't have a nickel, dime, quarter, so forth and so on without pennies first.
You're telling me in this day and age...in the middle of a St. Louis suburb street, none of the witnesses had a camera phone? THAT is the video I want to see!
If you torn your $40 pants picking up a penny, don't blame the penny, blame the gut and the butt!!
Tough days for this elderly caregiver, so.....start my morning off with some uplifting UnVent! Thanks to all who post the joys and memories.
Bending over is worth as much for its own sake, for your own health, as the penny is worth. So it's a two-fer!
Thanks to all the lazy people who don't pick up pennies my vacation fund jar fills up a lot faster.
If you drink a glass of water about 15 minutes before each snack or meal, you'll curb your hunger and not eat as much. Plus, the water is good for you.
Thank you for being a elderly caregiver.
The gene pool needs some chlorine---no, make that a shock treatment!
Calm down everybody. Eat what you want and enjoy.
Do you know how kids spell "love"?T-I-M-E,spend some with your kids.
Forget Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, etc. Eat breakfast, lunch & dinner - ONLY 1 plate of food each meal. No snacking; drink water between meals. 38 YEARS AGO, I lost 60 lbs. in 8 months. Weight problem gone for good.
I am bored silly with Facebook.
Elderly caregiver, hope there a fewer tough days for you. Take care of yourself! I'm praying for you!
As you grow older you need to eat less and exercise more and you will lose weight and live longer!!!
Are you deliberately misrepresenting the difference between a spanking and child abuse, or are you really too dense to see the difference?
I'm guessing there are bars and there are bars. Some are dives and some are just good country gathering places.

I was raised in a dysfunctional family, with addicts and alcoholics. trust me when I say none of us turned out the way we have because of a spanking. There is a huge difference between spanking and abuse. Some don't learn with a spanking and time out and talking don't work for some either. Love them and do your best.
Please stop, there is a huge difference between abust and a spanking. You have to admit so far those of us who did get hit are better then the young people of today who were given a time out or nopunishment at all.
My Dad, a former minor league baseball player, used to take me to a tavern down the street on Sat. afternoons to watch a little baseball on TV when my Mom was working. He'd have one beer and I'd have an orange soda. Then, we'd walk home and he'd listen to the rest of the game on the radio.
