I am a Civil War Reenactress. Met my future husband at a muster in 1984. My 2 young daughters, husband,myself,attend many,many, civil war events every year. Our business is making and selling civil war uniforms and hats.I was liked Nikita, because I have long blonde hair and am 5ft.10. That caught my interest,but I keep watching because the show had well written thought provoking scripts and I fell for Mr.Micheal and became a HR.. I can share LFN lore, with my husband and one of my sisters. Final comment---I am attratted to this group, because of the intelligence and humor I found. Some of you should really consider writing

I've always felt that the perfect perpetual age was 30 -- for women. Men, well, we all know men take longer to mature :), so for them, 40. When you're 30, you are legal. More importantly, you are an adult, who hopefully has gone through and resolved all the growing angsts and pangs of insecurities and emotional instabilities that plague adolescents and young adults. (I did say, hopefully, right :-)? ) Careers goals have been or are in the process of being solidified if not achieved, and we are financially secured (or should be!). Mentally, the mind is at its sharpest (do I need to put a disclaimer here too? :-) ). Physically? I think by 30 a person is more health conscious than vain (right?). So, yes, at 30 many of us are also in our physical peaks. G > Wishful thinker " Michael is the moon to Nikita's tide." gvd

But then, as LFN fans, most of us are... [nod to the horse thread here] Yeah, a lot of your points are pretty much on the money. In my experience (whatever that may be), many women under 30 are to be avoided (Denise2 a notable exception.) However, that is a 44 year old perspective; 20 years ago I would have argued that point. (Isn't there some kind of saying about hindsight?....) Actually, aging is somewhat gender neutral, and as trite as it may sound, is akin to fine wine. Those who were fortunate enough to have excellent roots, and those who were fortunate enough to overcome a less than stellar genetic lineage, tend to age well. Just as a third growth will occasionally approach or even equal a first growth, so it is with humans. I have found the substance of older women to be intriguing, and I enjoy their company. BUT, the energy and discovery of younger women acts almost as an aphrodisiac. I have been fortunate enough to enjoy close relationships with women both younger and older than myself, and each is memorable in its own way -- again, very much like wine. I would place the ideal age for women just a bit older than 30, but I reserve the option to change that as I myself age. As for men, and as I am approaching 45, well, 45 is the best. (It just keeps getting better!) As far as the health conscious perspective, I find that fit women and men over 35 are in the minority, although there seems to be more women than men. That is a real shame and a reflection on our culture, as all aspects of life are so much more pleasurable when you are fit. Chris

So >relying on my partner for interpretation was trying because I wasn't always >told everything that was said. > >Siobhan Autumn is my favorite time of year, also. Not sure why, exactly. Could be that things seem to start to slow down and the settling in for winter begins. And the air is crisp like not even spring can offer. English is spoken everywhere. The people were exceedingly nice and accommodating. The canals are fun to walk along. And looking at all the different boats that people live in on the canals is interesting. We mostly just walked around looking at the sights. Amsterdam is a very walkable city. Although the 'grid' is circular, you can always find your direction by looking for the tall spire near the train station. If you go, the Van Gogh museum is a must. (For me personally, he is my favorite artist.) But I hear that that museum is undergoing renovations for the next 12 - 18 months. (That's why I will be fortunate enough to travel to Los Angeles in the spring to see the nearly complete collection again! It's in Washington, D.C. right now. But I digress). There also seemed to be quite a few quilt shops to wander through and you can watch the 'bees' making their quilts. Beautiful. And of course, Anne Frank's house (where she and her family and a few strangers hid during the Nazi occupation) is there. That too is a must see. You won't believe how small it is. Very moving. And a day trip to the Hague is well worth it. Many of the old timber houses are leaning at what looks like dangerous angles (because of the high water table in the soils) but are propped up with tall thick timbers wedged between the ground and high walls. The intricate care that is given the entry ways of most of the door ways with plants and color and door knockers make it all very inviting. Oh! And if you catch the right year (don't remember the cycle, sorry) and you go in September, you can catch the flower festival.......breathtaking with all the colors. Like walking through a sea of brilliant oil paints. Really. Okay. Probably more than you wanted or expected, but get me talking about anything I am passionate about, and I will go on. :-D Suzita (warning though, that if you order french fries you will get them served up with mayonnaise!)

So far, we've had cold, rain, fog, rain, an ocassional dry day (yes!), and oh, did I mention rain storms? The weather is so unpredictable over here. You can expect anything at any time of the year.

Now, I didn't pay much attention in my history classes (only when I was older, I started to get interested in history, old history), but many of those houses were used as warehouses in the old days. So, these beams with the hooks were also used to get the goods from the boats up into the warehouses (and out again). But I would expect the people that live in them now, would surely use them for getting the furniture in the house. Anne

True. The four of us just kind of stood there looking at the trees and canal wiping a few vagrant tears from our cheeks, not saying anything. Very powerful. In one of the very tiny rooms the shutters were closed, blocking out the sunshine. The clock tower outside chimed the hour. Hearing that and the noise of people on the streets below brought the stifling concealment they all must have felt straight to me and made me sad for what they gave up to live.

(Although I have lived in the Bay Area since I was 11, I never made it to Yosemite - a mere 3.5 hours away - until I was 26, and that was a trip from San Diego!) Even though I was in excellent shape from running around 100 miles a week, I was huffing and puffing up the trail. Toward the top of the trail to Vernal Fall (the lower of the two falls) I stopped to catch my breath. An elderly woman stopped next to me and asked if that was my first time up the trail. After learning it was, she said "don't fret, child, it does get easier with each trip up." I looked at her and asked how many times she had been up the trail. She said she couldn't remember the exact number but that she had been going there every year since she was 22, and she was then 88 years old. That woman was beautiful - outwardly and in spirit. At that moment I made the decision never to take my health or fitness for granted, and aspire to go up that trail (or others of similar type) each of my remaining years. So far I have done that, and with each 'new' time up an old familiar trail it does get easier, and the sights are always fresh. Suzita (inspired by a stranger)

My first reaction to this was..... "he he he, here I am with the physique of a sofa cushion...." For me, the fitness has had to become something that happened secondarily (or even thirdarily, fourtharily) to something I was pursuing.... Sort of like sneaking up on myself and surprising me..... Even when I was 113#, in a ballet troupe, I was always the "round" looking dancer and I hated my body..... Found a picture today and I would have made Kate Moss look obese..... *I* had to force myself to fit the art, not find an art that fit me.... My body was never good enough to the teacher or me.... So I pushed and I punished, didn't eat near enough.... Abused every system in my body.... because I just HAD to have that perfect body...... You know, the hard, skinny toned one that is only possible for about 4% of the human population... The body that goes against what mother nature intended for most wimmen folk... Not the body that inspired the Willendorf Venus, Boticelli or Vargas..... But an anomaly that has come into being in Western culture in the last 50 years.... Making people hate themselves for their outer shell.... Something that has nothing to do with their worth as humans.... I personally paid for it dearly at age 29..... There is just so abuse in the name of perfection a human body can take before something stops working.... Now, 20+ years later, my body is different.... And what is so funny is 'this' body I happen to like.... Alot.... I suits me..... I have learned do live within my own skin and accept that who I am has nothing to do with what I am on the outside.... (Working in a Nursing Home quickly makes you aware of how little control we really have over what happens with the body....while the mind doesn't change) The fact that I am in relatively good shape now has nothing to do with fitness.... The fitness is just a perk that comes from dancing... The best part is bringing the music to life, feeling it come in my bones and go out through my skin (as the Turks say)....... As fitness is an nice gift that comes from avid gardening, horseback riding, walking, swimming.... Whatever.... For me at least, love of the endeavor, the wanting to be there, to experience something that you feel passionately about...... That just so happens to involve your body and your mind is what comes first..... And if you happen to become physically better off, hey, ain't life grand?

I find it very difficult to exercise for the sake of exercise. The exercise has to be something I enjoy doing. I have been bicycling lately, and as long as I can avoid the cars whose drivers think they own the road, I enjoy it a lot. And it DOES help my fitness.

Like Elmer's glue is from Elsie and Elmer.... Gelatins come from the hooves and cartilige of cows, pigs and horses.... Funny, even though they come from protein sources, they lack 4 of the essential amino acids so the protien available for use in the human body is nearly zero. There are non-animal gelatins out there made from gums and seaweed.... EZBee, Hell in a game of trivial pursuit.

>AmyKG >going on 21 years w/ no meat and little to none animal products, Wow, good for you Amy! I used to be the queen of the Extra Value Meal but I gave up fast food (except for the occasional Taco Bell) two years ago and I went totally vegetarian 1 year ago. If anyone's considering it, I have to admit I feel 100% better physically, have less energy and don't need as much sleep since I quit eating meat. It may not work the same for everyone but it definitely benefitted me. Cathy

Hi, another new one checking in. I posted a couple of times a while back, then mysteriously couldn't get in here anymore. I was finally able to get messages here again by unsubscribing and resubscribing to this NG. Name: Karla Screen Name: Hmmmm, still just Karla Location: Lexington, Kentucky...heart of the Bluegrass where unfortunately, it sounds like Lisa got several bones broken by horses. :( Went to the convention? Uh, no. I work in a school and school doesn't take a break for LFN conventions. Can you imagine the nerve? ;) Watched any of the webcasts? I dunno. I don't think so. This moronic newbie doesn't even know what that is. <sigh> Age/Sex: 36/F Favorite Season 1 ep? Well, unfortunately, I am so new I have only seen two and they were in reruns. I have seen "War" and "Mercy". "War" was pretty intense, so I would have to say it was my favorite. I see "Obsessed" is on the schedule, so I'll get to add another First Season eps to my list. Favorite Season 2 ep? I have seen most of these courtesy of reruns. I see from the schedule that I will be seeing most of what I haven't seen in the next month or so. My favorites have been "Hard Landing" and "Psychic Pilgrim". I love those steamy scenes between Michael and Nikita. <drool> Favorite Character: Michael....for all the same reasons as most (not all) of the females here. <g> Hobbies/Interests: Computer, reading, television About myself: I am married with one 12-year-old son. I got hooked on LFN during the summer when the other networks started their reruns. I started tuning into channels I hadn't normally watched. I have fallen in love with LFN and now I never miss an episode. I can't wait until the new season starts. Lisa wrote in message <362C282D.674C43BD@naxs.com>... New Operative Checking In Name: Lisa Screen Name: Kierana Location: Castlewood, VA - tiny community in southwest VA Went to the convention? Not bloody likely <sigh> I'm stuck here on the farm. Watched any of the webcasts? Nope Age/Sex: 34/F Favorite Season 1 ep: Gambit Favorite Season 2 ep: Mandatory Refusal Favorite Character: Madeline - the iron fist in the iron glove - who else can and *will* stop their own heart Hobbies/Interests: Reading, beading, and this computer. Quote: "This is how it seems to me, life is only therapy - real expensive and no guarantee." Gordon Kennedy & Pierce Pettis About myself: I just started reading this ng and couldn't stop myself from checking in. You have no idea how scary it is to read all of the other check-ins and see just how much I have in common with a mulitude of people I've never met. I too have owned horses in my life and for 10 years worked on a farm in the Kentucky bluegrass. All of my toes have been broken by horses as well as my collarbone and right arm.

(Although I have lived in the Bay Area since I was 11, I never made it to Yosemite - a mere 3.5 hours away - until I was 26, and that was a trip from San Diego!) Even though I was in excellent shape from running around 100 miles a week, I was huffing and puffing up the trail. Toward the top of the trail to Vernal Fall (the lower of the two falls) I stopped to catch my breath. An elderly woman stopped next to me and asked if that was my first time up the trail. After learning it was, she said "don't fret, child, it does get easier with each trip up." I looked at her and asked how many times she had been up the trail. She said she couldn't remember the exact number but that she had been going there every year since she was 22, and she was then 88 years old. That woman was beautiful - outwardly and in spirit. At that moment I made the decision never to take my health or fitness for granted, and aspire to go up that trail (or others of similar type) each of my remaining years. So far I have done that, and with each 'new' time up an old familiar trail it does get easier, and the sights are always fresh.<< Yes!! While in my late 20s (about 10 years ago) I went hiking up a "small" mountain in the Adirondacks with a group of friends, male and female. We arrived huffing and puffing and so arrogantly proud of ourselves--until we noticed the small, quiet, elderly woman gazing out over the view. Turns out she always liked to hike up a mountain on her birthday, and this was her 82nd. Her clear unclouded eyes just brimmed with serenity. Thanks for reminding at a time when I'm beginning to be afraid of aging. sharp

I think I would feel just a tad guilty.

Jeez, if they smell another critter on me, they do nasty things to the offending articles. But, you gotta love them, it can't be helped - and to think I used to encourage my dogs to chase them when I was little! Kids are nasty.

Several years ago, a good friend of mine "lost her cat" to a roving automobile. Later, after "research" I took her to a person's house where there was a "mama cat" and 8 kittens. The owners wanted to do "interviews" of people - before they would give them one of the kittens. I liked that!! So - there we were - me in position of "supportive friend" as she "bonded" with one of the little critters.

Several thoughts on cats --- (I am ever a profound thinker!! <g>) Melissa - once again we both have similar memories of Amsterdam. So many of the restaurants there have two or three "sections" to eat in - and I loved sitting there with one of the "resident cats" deciding to stay with me awhile - before passing on to the next person. Rita - I loved your story about the cats at the hotel for the guests! Sounds like the perfect tip to give all owners of bed and breakfasts out there!! <g> The other way around - there is the issue of "what to do with the cats" when vacation or business travel comes up. If someone is home, fine. Other times, I've left the cats "home" - but had a nephew coming over daily to clean the cat boxes, change the water, check the food, and talk to them. There are three cats here now - but when there were four - one was "old" and "sickly". So, did not feel "safe" leaving her on the home front - and there were meds to give, etc --- so "explored" where to take her. One time, the vet was "full up" could couldn't board her there. After looking around at all the boarding options, found that an enterprising soul had opendd the "Kitty Hotel"!! debbie (they didn't offer kitty tennis or anything, but hey - it was still a great idea!!)

I've actually considered that. I love cats for who they are, appearances a bonus. I just don't seem to have any luck on finding those type of cats. Maybe one day... When I was much younger, I used to feed and play with all the stray cats around the neighborhood. Of course, my parents always told me "N-O" to keeping them so I would come out at a certain time everyday and feed them to make sure they didn't starve. It would always kill me whenever I saw one of those cats laying on the road hit by a car. But I like to think that I made their days a lighter brighter while they were around.

I don't know. I have 3 cats, but I grew up with dogs. My initial reason for getting a cat was because I just couldn't find a way to afford or take care of a dog with my income and lifestyle. So I got a cat, because I couldn't bare to be without a pet. And to my delight, I love cats as much as I do dogs. There are a bit different. But not drastically so; they do take up less room in bed <g> The only problem i have with cats, are that they tend to multiply exponentially. Even if your little beast can't reproduce, they have tendency of just inviting their buddies over, and it is soooooo hard to say no.

I read a study that said dog owners like to have an animal that blindly loves them. The owners prefer to have an animal that is totally devoted to them for no particular reason other then that they exist. Cat owners tend to be more secure about themselves and have a more equal partnership with their cat. They see the animal as being as important as they are and interact with the cat on equal footing. I don't know guys, but after I read the study, I was relieved to be a cat owner! I wonder what it means when a person has cats and dogs??? Gail : - )

I grew up with dogs and will always consider myself a "dog person". However, I was adpoted by a stray kitten five years ago and have fallen in love with him. Of course, at first, I had no idea how to deal with a cat and was constantly calling my calling my cat person friend and asking " Hey! My cat is doing this really weird thing, is this normal?" She would always laugh at me. It took awhile to get used to the differences, but now I love both species. So does that make me a dat person or a cog person or what? Paleoanth

I > think I'm just your all-around animal lover. When the boys in 3rd grade used > to chase me with snakes, I'd yell at them about being careful with the snake Same here..... I grew up with animals: cows, pigs, chickens, horses, fish, goats, cats, dogs.... plus the stray abandoned wild things that got bottle fed (rabbits,'possums, birds,)..... All wild things that lived around us were accepted as being part of our world, with job and necessary.... like the bats in the barn eating mosquitoes... the big rat snake in the corn crib eating mice.... the quail running between rows of beans eating bugs.... the deer in the soybean field.... (er, those were just fun to watch) So, I think it is even deeper in some ways, like instead of having an adversarial relationship with nature and animals, accepting them more as a part of your world and worthy of consideration... And companionship.... EZBee, Roomie with cats, dogs, rabbit, fish, lizard (lost in the aspidistra) and some very busy ants....

I can't wait to adopt the dogs and puppies out. But it kills me to let the kittens and cats go with their new families. I make sure the new families call to let me know how they're doing and if they have to leave town, we offer free babysitting. It makes it really tough to have them brought back here when we already have an overly- full house but I feel better knowing they're okay.

Whoever > said that the world is divided into Dog People and Cat People may have been on > to something. Oh, my, yes. The majority of my friends are "cat people." (Sounds like a horror flick, doesn't it? <G>) I'm in a 4-cat household right now. Two of them are mine, two of them are my roommate's. I like dogs okay, but I don't think I'd ever want to own one. They're just too demanding. (No, I don't plan on having children, either! LOL) Dogs look up at you with those big pitiful eyes and everything about them just screams, "I have no life! You are my life! I am miserable for every moment that you aren't giving me meaning and purpose!" If I dated a guy like that, I'd dump him in a New York minute. Cats, on the other hand, *have* a life, thank you very much, and they are happy to let you share it but they don't constantly need you there to give meaning to their pitiful existence. That's how I like my friends, too, come to think of it. Loving and affectionate, but not needy or whining. Now it sounds like I hate dogs, and I don't. They can be very sweet and adorable, especially big ones like labradors or golden retrievers, or German shepherds. Why am I rambling?

One of my cats likes to sleep in my hair too. He has an absolute hair fetish. It was something my dog never did <g> My cat pads his way up the bed, you can hear him purring like a motor boat. and then he starts tramping around in my hair. There is something so wonderful about it. Eventually he settles down and snores the nite away, unless he's had a bad day and then he keeps me up most of the nite. It is probably a good thing dogs are not prone to purring in their housemonkey's hair LOL could you imagine? It's okay to spoil your pets, because they never have to grow up to deal with the real world, unlike children. My little beasts are wonderfully spoiled. And I'm hansomely rewarded for my efforts , most of the time. Way to go about walking away with the cat. Much better choice than the man. Cats may be a bit finicky sometimes, but at least they are faithful.

His name is Emyr and he can't live without me. ( Maybe because he was my first cat and I treated him a bit like a dog LOL) He looks up at me with those big green eyes and demands that I pay attention and make his life worth while. When I'm gone to long during the day, he runs out to greet me chattering and mewing all the way, and if I'm not paying attention, he just walks between my feet to alert me to his presence <g> He actually follows me all over the place. When I go to get the mail - he walks out with me, when I watch LFN - he's right there cheering as well, when I'm on the net - he's on the table, I can't even use the washroom without him coming along to make sure I'm okay. >Now, I know he's not your most normal cat, I have two others who don't behave this way, but just so you know, not all cats are independent or have a life of their own Siobhan

That's how my cat behaves. In fact, she is so jealous of the baby that she insists on curling in my lap while I give Allison her bottle. Shikira was also my shadow.
