Parents who watch their kid scream at you to shut up, and then get upset when you tell the kid to be respectful to adults.
Parents nowadays are awful - Shevonne from iPhone
Recently heard "Come here, Charmaine, you f***ING little bitch, before I kick your f**ING head in". Charmaine was about three. Mother looked about 22. No wonder Kids are growing up the way some are - Ian May

You know, for a dead social network, FF is damn active. More than a hundred likes for the wonderful news of the birth of a beautiful baby girl to two amazing people. I don't see 100+ likes/favorites/retweets/+1s for things my friends post on any other social media site outside of FB (and not often on FB).
Same goes for the Italian and Turkish communities. Day or night, there's always someone to talk to, on FF. - marta from FFHound(roid)!
That's good to hear, Marta. I wish I spoke Italian and Turkish! - Stephen Mack
@Stephen, I think FF is much more social in terms of genuine connections. There are many peeps here that I have never met , but its like I know them 4ever , kinda thingy. We are sharing our lives here.. not content !! Thats the core difference between FF and other Social sites. - Peter Dawson
Stephen: if you want to pick up a bit of conversational Italian, Duolingo is a great (free) app for learning. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
I dip in and out. I'd use FF a whole lot more if there was a good app for my cellphone. The screen is too small to use the web site, which is fine on my desktop, laptop, and tablet. - Ian May
FFHound is good. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone

Oh persimmons, where have you been all my life?
Had some in a salad at a Halloween party, then someone gave me a Fuyu this past weekend. I'm now chowing down on a salad with red leaf lettuce, diced persimmon, turkey bacon, hard boiled egg, sliced almonds, dried orange cranberries, and balsamic vinaigrette. SO GOOD. - Corinne L
Interesting. I never thought of putting persimmon in a salad. I love Hachiya persimmons, but they're messy. I bought some Fuyus this week at 2 lbs for 99¢ and dehydrated them. Love dehydrated persimmons. But this salad idea is intriguing. - Spidra Webster
It is fantastic. I love sweet and tart and crunchy in my salads so the persimmon is perfect. - Corinne L
Dehydrated permissions are tasty. - Rodfather from Android
I will have to try those next. - Corinne L
My wife's aunt in Brea had a persimmon tree in her back yard, and she got me picking bucketfuls of them one afternoon. Rarely see them here and they're mighty expensive - Ian May
Tonight I ran into the executive chef for Grange, one of the swankier restaurants here in Sac. We were chatting with a third person about discovering new foods. I told him about this salad, and his face lit up and he said "That sounds awesome!" So I'm feeling pretty cool right about now. - Corinne L

I spent the morning with my parents at the hospital as my Dad underwent some routine, minor surgery (they removed a cataract). However, as he is a cancer survivor, and diabetic, there isn't really any "minor" surgery. I'm very happy to say he's come out of it very well.
I'm sad to say that it was a bit of a first for me. My father's always given the impression he's a stoic type, and doesn't want any fuss. For years, I indulged him. But the main reason I moved to Victoria was to be near them, and help. So, I insisted. I could tell he appreciated it. - Brent Schaus
I think his stoicism is like those gift-giving traditions where you have to offer three times, kind of thing. He'll say, "Don't bother... it's not a big deal... you don't need to take time off of work..." Yes, Dad, I will bother. It is a big deal, and I'm happy to take the time off work to be there. - Brent Schaus
Aw, you're a good son. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
^^this. I think as we grow older, and our parents grow older, we all realize that having an on-call support team is important. We may not say it out loud, but we're all thinking it. - Corinne L
Thanks, Lisa. I'm trying... I'm truly trying to make up for lost time. - Brent Schaus
Cherish each moment. My parents moved away for retirement 25 years worth. We moved them back in '09. The last 2.5 of my dad's health were the most stressful but I wouldn't trade the time I got to spend with him. - Janet from FFHound!
Aww, inside I bet he's a softie. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yeah, he is... he's been a retired cop long enough now that much of the trauma and effects of that life have dissipated. He's even at the point where he says he would have rather been a teacher. He's a bit of a gentle giant type now :) - Brent Schaus

I'm a little bit excited that a book review I wrote is going to be published on the SAHM website tomorrow. It's no literary masterpiece, and it even contains some horribly cliched phrases, but it's the first "thing" I've written in YEARS, so YAY! :oD
Good job (I'm sure) :) - Morgan Fugel

It's not that difficult to look up the proper spelling of cities if you're going to reference them in a TV show or movie. That thing called the Internet is really good for this type of task.
It's a silly bitchfest item, but sloppy and/or nonexistent research irritates me so much. - Corinne L

The idea that what works for you, works for everybody. And if someone does something different, that they are maligned for not doing things as you do. Everyone's different. Everyone has worth. Everyone matters. Open your eyes, your hearts, and your minds enough to give people a chance.
So fucking tired of close-minded people who purport to be anything but. Jesus. - Derrick
"Everyone matters" 👍 ✌ - JB from iPhone

If you're simultaneously complaining that the state patrol is always running enforcement stuff around here, and that people around here don't speed fast enough for you, you may have a cognitive dissonance problem.

London is one of the largest urban areas in Europe. Its boundaries were set by the creation of Greater London in 1965, covering the 32 London boroughs and the City of London. Almost two-thirds of it is green space and wetlands. - Halil from Bookmarklet

we went to her fave Korean BBQ place for lunch and then loaded up at the nearby Super H-Mart. later on we all went for a leisurely swim before dinner. - Big Joe Silence
now, of course, the kids are conked out and she and i were taking turns kneading the cramps out of each others legs before she finally called it a night. romance ain't dead, folks. :P - Big Joe Silence
Was there kimchi? - Mo Kargas
oh, forgot to mention the awesome cake we got her. our youngest also picked out some lovely flowers which now reside in a vase on the dinner table.. - Big Joe Silence
@Mo: kimchi and other related things. lunch was delightful. - Big Joe Silence

A while back Sophie spotted an old music cassette player. She looked at me like I was crazy when I demonstrated how you had to rotate the thing for another few songs. With her 64GB iDevice in hand she just can't wrap her head around that. But dad, it doesn't even have games. Or photos. Or movies. Or FaceTime. #saturdayff
We've just set up a turntable and got out our old LPs. The kids. They mock. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
But, at the same time, they are interested in the music. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
We don't have any of our vinyl records anymore. I'm a purger. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
She has only seen also seen the corded and cordless phones outside our home. We don't own a VCR. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
boy her head would really explode if you showed her an 8 track - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Believe it or not but we have one of those in the barn (came with the property). Just no cassettes. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
We were going somewhere last night, and my wife saw a VHS cassette on the side of the road. I remarked that Olivia (my 3-year-old) will never understand why we used such antiquated technology. - Jonathan Disher
Show her a gramophone or Edison phonograph :D - Mo Kargas
Jonathan, that's exactly right. The gap between myself and my parents seem to be less than the technological gap between myself and my daughters. I'm thinking that I have to look for a museum that I can take her to. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Sometimes I feel that when we had less technology, we were more likely to watch or listen to something and enjoy it, without the dilemma of which to choose! - Ian May from Android
True. On the other hand, no more fiddling with the media itself, but easy selection. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Last time we went to the Smithsonian we checked out an exhibit of old household appliances: toasters, heating pads, cameras, radios etc. Comments ranged from "hey I had that when I was a kid" (my kid) to "hey I'm still using one of those" (me). - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
The ultrasound machine we had used for years and finally retired was older than the one in the Smithsonian! - Janet
I've worked with equipment like that too (not ultrasound). "Old" is such a relative term. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Derrick
It doesn't have to be anything more than someone saying, "I got you. Man, I got you." to help wash away the stress. Money can be taken away, material things can be stolen, lost, or broken, but the outstretched hand of a friend offering merely their time, love, and friendship, when you feel you've lost the world, is priceless.

I’m honestly amazed at how someone who goes to McDonald’s and Taco Bell can even think he’s an authority on eating healthy. #subtweet
I agree. Mind you, I don't go to McDonald's or Taco Bell because it's nasty crap anyway. - Ian May from FFHound(roid)!

What are you growing? - imabonehead
What I just started- red bell pepper, green bell pepper, greenbeans, wax beans, broccoli, carrots, yellow squash, zucchini, basil, rosemary, thyme, dill, and cilantro. I am waiting on my heirloom tomato, parsnip, more red bell pepper, and sugar snap pea seeds to arrive. I'll start some fingerling potatoes from a few that I'll pick up at the store. :) - Jenny H.
hmmm...freshly picked veggies for delicious salads! - imabonehead
Well, you got the freshly picked veggies part right. :P I am so excited about this that I even made a spreadsheet to track germination and harvest. :") - Jenny H.
Myfolia.com is a great tool for tracking things like that (it has even more milestone choices) if you want something searchable, etc. I love it so much that if I could program worth a damn, I'd be doing pro bono work for them trying to make an offline editor for them. http://myfolia.com/gardene... - Spidra Webster

If you know me reasonably well, you know exactly how I feel about software installers that bundle crapware, the developers that choose to abuse their users this way, and the companies that make this possible.
crapware-bundles.png
If you have the nerve to contact me through my software site to discuss whether I'd be willing to cram crapware down my users' throats, it will probably go something like this...especially if you catch me when I am cranky and haven't had enough sleep. - April Russo
I left his email address intact in case any software users would also like to let him know how they feel about bundled crapware. Maybe if he gets enough emails he will quit and get himself a more ethical job. - April Russo
Oh, this gets better...the name on the email matches this LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/in... Yes, it is the same Wayne Rosso. He went from public relations for a lot of big name artists to president of Grokster to pushing crapware bundles. Translation: helping artists to sell albums to helping fans steal them, helping users pirate software to peddling crapware to the same developers that had their software stolen. What a slimeball! - April Russo
