    ...or in today's case, "phrase of the day"...

    Beyond the pale


    • not acceptable to most people; outside the bounds of acceptable behavior; outside agreed standards of decency


    The phrase "beyond the pale" dates back to the 14th century, when the part of Ireland that was under English rule was delineated by a boundary made of such stakes or fences, and known as the English Pale. To travel outside of that boundary, beyond the pale, was to leave behind all the rules and institutions of English society, which the English modestly considered synonymous with civilization itself.

    Empathy and Sympathy are often confused or though to be the same...

    Empathy



    • 1: the imaginative projection of a subjective state into an object so that the object appears to be infused with it


    • 2: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner; also: the capacity for this


    Sympathy


    • 1: the feeling that you care about and are sorry about someone else's trouble, grief, misfortune, etc. : a sympathetic feeling


    • 2: a feeling of support for something


    • 3: a state in which different people share the same interests, opinions, goals, etc.

    Yes, and now he appears to be gone--at least for now; so, I'm going to pretend it was only a bad dream and move on...LOL I've done my civic duty as well concerning the disgusting and vile website he has; now, it is in the hands of ProBoards and hopefully they will do the right thing.

    Ouch! I read an article a few years ago about an important consideration when deciding to buy a home. It was about also setting up a savings account devoted exclusively for "home maintenance" as these requirements surely will happen. If I am remembering correctly, the advice was to save a percentage of the purchase price of the home yearly--if the home is new construction one should save 2% of the purchase price yearly; if 10-15 years old when purchased, save 3% of the purchase price yearly; and, if more than 15 years old save 4% of the purchase price yearly. These amounts are significant and should be accounted for when determining "how much house can I afford to buy" ... E.g., a $200k new construction house would "cost" $4,000 a year or $333 monthly; a 10-year-old $200k house would be $6,000 yearly or $500 monthly; a 16-year-old $200k house would require a savings of $8,000 yearly, or $667 monthly. Of course once you've accumulated enough to replace a roof and the heating/air conditioning systems as well as other major appliances and routine major repairs and maintenance you can back off a bit on the monthly savings requirements.
