My neighbor on the other side from the mad woman, was a JW. A lovely guy, a pretty good friend, we would look after each other's place when the other was away. He even wrote a letter in support of me about all the problems she was causing in the neighborhood with many people. Sadly, he got cancer, and refused chemo, for he had seen what his wife went thru when she did chemo. She tried to persuade him by telling him that the treatment had improved since she did it, but he had made up his mind. I was never bothered by JWs while they were there.

I previously dealt with them at other premises by telling them that I had my own religion, that if they wanted to say a quick prayer, I would do that with them, but that I really did not want them back. They never came back to those premises while I stayed there.

Hmmmm... apparently, I struck a cordite with this thread.

I am sticking to my bottom line. If my neighbours don't show me common courtesy and respect my rights, I believe they are rude.

As for me allowing the neighbour's cat to bully and torture Bear day after day at length after I tried to get the neighbour to do SOMETHING about it, I don't think that is acceptable. A four month old dog choking itself out of breath on it's tether is just not acceptable.

Oh yeah... the neighbour with the windchimes also has a flag next to his front door. It's about 7m from my bedroom window and it flaps in the wind which is quite enough noise to be disturbing during the night but also often smacks the soffit return making even more noise. I have NO idea what the design on the flag is supposed to represent... perhaps "rudeness"?

Re the JWs, I used to be polite. I asked them to stop. They didn't. Every time they came to my door, I told them not to ring Mum's door. They did.... seconds later. That is rude.

I am as nice as pie if you don't throw pie in my face.

I'll get rid of my wind chimes when the neighbor gets rid of her 4 barking dogs, stops turning off the "invisible fence" at night so they can come piss on my shrubs and crap in my driveway, keeps her garbage where the damned dogs can't get in it so that the wind blows it into my yard, (not to mention the tacky silk flowers she puts out and lets rot until they also blow all over my yard, and keeps her 5 cats inside so they stop killing the birds at my feeders, and using my raised beds as a litter box.

There, glad I got that off my chest.

I agree with Kat about the JWs. We have a few locally. They're polite, friendly and don't harangue.

Mormons, on the other hand, are a bunch of threatening bullies who dress like the Mafia and behave to match. Politeness is completely wasted on them.

Jehovah Witnesses at my door, OR in real life, have never ever been anything but polite to me. I`ve entered a few burning structures with a fellow who held to that belief. Never crossed my mind that he was religious--although I suppose we all get a bit religious at times like that. There are some folks who have no class, and dissing people because they have a different `belief` system is more a display of ignorance on the part of the disser than it is a reflection on the dissee. IMO.

It is good to remember, IMO, that at least one Mudcatter, a best beloved Mudcatter, has a life-long partner who is sincere in their Jehovah Witness beliefs. Imagine how it must feel to read of your loved one's group being trashed so often on a site you consider to be full of friends. I thought the thread was about neighbours which, except apparently in Deckman's case, are not necessarily "bible thumper."

One more thing and then I am done. Gnu, a warning at the beginning of your posts about the dog and cat would have been greatly appreciated. It's difficult to get those horrible images out of my mind, I don't know about anyone else. Of course, I lost a cat to a gd dog whose owner let it run loose in Mystic, CT. It ran into my yard, and by what witnesses said, just grabbed her in his mouth and ran. We looked for weeks as someone said they'd seen her body on a road, but we never were able to find her, nor prove anything against the owner. The dog was a known "problem" which the authorities did little about. I can assure you, though, had I had a chance to catch someone and/or their dog doing such, they would be fortunate to still be alive.

One other observation: sometimes "letting nature take its course" would mean several of us would be dead, already, as well as children not vaccinated, etc. It's a pretty broad statement to use as a defence, imo.

With respect,

kat

I once noticed a man who put a sign up on his entry step, that was near a bus stop, on a route that I took. It said "don't sit on the step". The sign kept coming down, and he kept putting it up. One day someone put a h in the lettering, it now said "don't shit on the step". The sign came down and was never erected again

On a personal note, I had no thought or desire to sit on his step, until I saw the sign. I admit, once I saw it, there was a compelling force that made me want to sit on it, if just for a few seconds. But, I never got the nerve up to do it, before it came down.

I spent some time in a house in Auckland with neighbours who were also heavy metal fans. They worked at constructing ferrocement yacht hulls. They combined work and business by making an exponential horn out of ferrocement, about 12 feet long and 8 feet across at the bell, and mounted on a trailer at the bottom of their garden pointing at the house. The idea was they could drive it from an amp kept indoors.

Fortunately they blew the driver speaker before I moved in.

The previous occupants of our house had left gouges along the hallway from where they'd driven their motorbikes up a ramp of planks through the front door, through the house and flying off the back porch. So with neighbours like us I guess the heavy metal yacht builders could easily get the idea that anything went.

Yes, by putting those signs there, he's encouraging them. They're determined to convert him. They'll break him down with love, dammit! Christian proselytizers are the type of people who believe you don't have anything in your life and so you need Jesus. All you have to do is read their testimonies: "Once I was miserable with no direction in life and then I found God!" They think the most hostile people are that way and so will keep preaching to them until they give in.

What they don't count on is that you reject their religion not because you haven't studied it but because you have. So hit back in that area--they leave it totally unprotected. A few well aimed jabs there and they're gone. But, of course, it means that DO have to study it with a critical eye.

I don't know where you live, you must be in some type of bible belt to have such frequent visits?
I have never had a Christian come to my door?

I sued to have Jehovah's Witnesses' (not Christians) but, never had them for a long time.

Ever consider that your prominent signs may be attracting the oddest folks to join you in your argument, not that there is anything wrong with that (nor it may be the actual goal).

////I have several prominant signs that say: "NO SOLICITORS ... NO BIBLE THUMPERS ... NO CHRISTIANS ALLOWED ... etc. But sure enough, every Sunday afternoon ... here they come.////

What you do is arm yourself with knowledge. Learn about the sham that is Christianity. For instance, tell them you'll join them if they can come up with one reference to Jesus Christ during his life. This incredible man born of a virgin who supposed turned Jewish society and the Roman occupation on its head should been someone the Roman writers might have found worth mentioning.

Or tell them you'll join if they can give you a chronological account of what happened on the first Easter--the conditions are that all four gospels must be used and no information can be omitted or modified from any of them. If these are reliable eyewitness testimonies, it should be a snap.

Or ask them if the gospels are eyewitness accounts then who witnessed the incident in the Garden of Gethsemane?

Or why did Jesus tell his audiences that the 2nd Coming would happen in their lifetimes when it didn't?

Or how did Jesus and Pilate engage in a complex conversation concerning the nature of truth when Jesus did not speak Greek or Latin and Pilate did not speak Aramaic?

If the gospel writers came from Palestine, how is it that they do not know the layout of its cities and towns and filled their accounts with the names of fictitious towns?

Why does Paul--supposedly a contemporary of Jesus--not ever tell us anything about Jesus Christ as a creature of history and, in fact, never tells us where Jesus walked or when?

When Paul was persecuting Christians, who else was involved with him, how long did the persecution last and why did it suddenly stop upon his conversion? Was he a one-man army?

Ask them if they are aware that Bethlehem once stood where Istanbul now stands and that was precisely the reason that Constantine placed the capital of the Eastern Empire there.

Ask them if they really believe it could be possible that a bunch of poor, illiterate commonfolk managed to found a church, produce a body of literature, develop a system of ritual and all with a fisherman appointed as its head?

This is how you combat them--learn their religion better than they know it and badger them relentlessly with questions and demand answers. If they try to equivocate, do not allow it--DEMAND answers to your questions. Tell them every time they come to your house, you will talk of nothing else so don't come by unless they have answers.

They'll stop coming by--trutst me on that one.

Healthy Alternatives to Moth Balls

By Annie B. Bond

It was sobering to see that naphthalene, the main ingredient in conventional moth balls was recently listed as a registered carcinogen by the U.S. government. How many homes have that memorable smell impregnating their sweater chests and closets? Natural moth repellents are the only safe choice, and their fragrances are effective. If you have mothballs in your house, put them in the trash, and air anything that holds their smell in the sun as often as possible.

Here is how to make an easy and effective moth repellent sachet:

This recipe will fill about a dozen sachets. You can buy herbs in bulk at almost any health food store:

2 ounces each dried rosemary and mint
1 ounce each dried thyme and American ginseng
8 ounces whole cloves

Mix herbs and place some in the center of a bandanna or handkerchief (or in a muslin tea-bag, available at health food stores). Tie with a ribbon.

I have lived in my neighborhood of Everett, Washington (usa) for over 20 years. During those years, I've had my frustrations with many rude neighbors: druggies, dope dealers, prostitutes, thieves, noisy dogs, late night parties, etc. I've survived ... better than some.

BUT ... what REALLY gets me is the Sunday afternoon bible thumpers. I'm surrounded by 5 (count 'em ... FIVE) CHURCHES. Each church is filled with people who feel that their sole (there's a pun there folks) obligation is to save my soul from things that THEY view as a threat.

I have several prominant signs that say: "NO SOLICITORS ... NO BIBLE THUMPERS ... NO CHRISTIANS ALLOWED ... etc. But sure enough, every Sunday afternoon ... here they come.

I have several tactics, depending on my mood. I might try to ignore them. Or I stare at them with my evil eye. Sometimes I only speak to them in Finnish ... this is always entertaining as they know not whereof I speak! Sometimes I ask them if they want to die NOW ... or five minutes from now ... I give them a choice.

So ... beyond the drug dealers, prostitutes, thieves, bad dogs, errant children and drunk cops, I can handle most anything ... EXCEPT THOSE #@$r^%^&#%@ christians! GAWD HELP US ALL! bob(deckman)nelson

IMO, the main ingregient of concern would be Naphthalene. I am not sure how drying and time reduces it's impact, or availability via air or contact.

Ed... every day over a long period of time, the cat sat in the hedge and teased the dog... even pissed on the dog. The dog would nearly choke itself unconcious, or so I was told my the little old lady on the other side of the property. I asked the owner of the cat to TRY to do something... come get the cat and admonish it... anything. I was met with a "fuck you" attitude. Other neighbours complained, including that little old lady, about the dog (BTW, it wasn't MY dog, it was my landlord's dog) barking for extended periods of time during the day while we were at work. The little old lady was more concerned for the dog than she was about the barking.

I didn't sic the dog on the cat... I let nature take it's course because the owner of the cat was not willing to lift a finger to help out.

I had three cats and I trained them all very well. I put a sandbox in my yard and kept it clean so they wouldn't shit elsewhere unless they were caught short. I told all my neighbours to tell me if they had ANY problems with my cats. If a neighbour told me that my cat   shat on their property, I would take the cat over, pick up the shit, make the cat smell it and admonish it and then take the cat to the sandbox and deposit the shit and tell the cat,"THAT is where you shit!" I would go after them with a water gun if I saw them after birds. I would do the same if I saw them in somebody's garden.

Neighbours have a responsiblity to neighbours. They have to at least TRY to be good neighbours. When they don't even try, it's time to build a fence.

Bullies are not acceptable to me and that cat and it's owner were bullies.

Yes, I did let Bear eat the cat. But I am sure the cat didn't suffer very long. It was small, four pounds max. Bear was four months old, gentle as a kitten and about ninety pounds. Was it cruel to let Bear eat the cat? Yup. I coulda shot it, I suppose. But I woulda gave it to Bear.

Thank you so much Dorothy for your concern. We stayed out near the sea for the day and breathed fresh air, and when we got home, the fumes had diminished a bit, but still unpleasant. Luckily a breeze has sprung up and is blowing away from us, so we feel a lot better. (We're in the UK by the way.)People are so IGNORANT about pollution and danger to the environment aren't they? I would never DREAM of doing such a thing!
Ed T, I understand what you're saying, that this is a new product and can't have been tested for long-term effects yet. It's definitely petroleum-based, as when it started, I first thought our oil tank had ruptured! I wish such products could be banned for domestic use and restricted to industrial sites. Is it really necessary to spray it on a garden fence?
The worrying thing is, a lot of children have arrived to CAMP in the garden right among the smelly fences, they're having a barbecue at the moment. I do hope they aren't risking serious health problems. Their Dad must be a lunatic IMO!!

josepp... "gnu is presenting himself as a particularly trifling, hateful idiot."

Typical. Your rude attitude toward others is clearly evident. As for me allowing "my" dog to bark, I wouldn't. I have manners and am mindful of others. That is the whole point of the thread. Unfortunately, people like you feel it is your right to do whatever you please without regard for others.

As for your character assination of me, repleat with innuendo and wild assumptions... typical of a person whose arguements are grasping at straws to be seen as other than their posts prove.

As for me shooting anything, I'd like to shoot your windchimes as you present yourself as a bully.

Creosote is not creocote.
Creosote is nasty stuff. It's health and environmental impacts are well known. In most locals, creosote is illegal in residential applications and is illegal or mostly restricted for industrial use.

While Creocote is new and marketed as OK for certain residential uses, because it is new limited research has been done on it's human health impacts. It presents a hazard to aquatic life.
