Success in combat or food gathering probably determined who became the alpha animals, who allowed or rewarded certain behaviors of ‘beta’ animals and disallowed or punished other behaviors.The…See More

Tom, regarding how to add pix, all I can tell you is how I've long since done it on my "How To Do It" page.  If you can show me a specific instance where you want to add a picture and it isn't working, I can look at that.  Otherwise, I have nothing to go by.

Well I have a good friend who just moved to Nolensville. She loves it there but she is very Christian and has already joined a church. So that will be her social life.

I hate living in Southern California because it is so crowded and expensive and there is no nature but I'm not sure if Tn would work. It would be a place to retire to. Husband is in the music business

I was initially raised Catholic by my grandmother. My father hated the Catholic church. Its good to be in touch with like minded folk instead of biting my tongue.
