This thread is smoking emoticon ! Thanks for the laughs all.

Hi Emily! I just live up the road a few hours from you in Seattle. I LOVE Portland. We Amtrak down frequently to see friends & family.

Welcome to the best group around!

Okay so now we have to comment on the fact that your toy reference uses D-Cells ... Poor AA toys are not going to be able to handle that well.

Could be worse, the lord could insist that the toys need a kick start or pull cord. ;)

For the Lord so loved the world that he sent his only-begotten D-cell batteries to spread joy and happiness throughout the land...

"... and there was much rejoicing."

Of course now I'm pondering a battery powered chain saw. Would it be worth the hassle for it to be quieter? Would it have the same horror value? For that matter, would this be worth marketing in areas with small engine use is restricted? Though the idea of hauling around a bandoleer of replacement batteries to keep it running sounds awfully heavy. :) Yes I know they make tons of the things with cords attached. Just trying to sway the idea away from something that would nix one's knickers.

Sorry. I can't hear you. The personal item that the lord blessed is kind of loud. Rejoice!

/sarcasm warning/
In actuality, since I neither defined her holding or not holding that trunk in the air, who is to say I did not infer her ability to keep gravity in check so that it would stay put through her will alone? I merely complimented her on the picture of the tree and left her image in the picture completely lacking. Perhaps I am merely testing your faith like a pesky fossil?

Or perhaps even that she was merely taunting that poor tree after having felled it while running away from the wrath of someone's savior for having impure thoughts about them blessing personal items? :)

Now you have me laughing about the savior blessing a more private battery operated device than my scale.

And ye of little faith, implying that EMILY is not holding that tree trunk in the air with her own two hands. She works out night and day, to be that strong.

"the savior blessed my scale " ... Okay, for some reason I cannot stop finding mirth and laughter when I read that.

Or for some perverse reason the idea that the savior might bless other battery operated items one of these people may own might be the problem.

Welcome.

Good pic of a hanging tree over the trail as well. I love it when they lay down uphill like that.

Emily, will you explain what's really holding up the tree trunk in your profile picture?

Yo, Emily- we do occasionally call on the Flying Spaghetti Monster to bless you with his noodly appendages, so you need some bloody toleration here.
Tee hee.
Welcome to the team. Spark has many houses- I hide from the ones with the + over them, but get annoyed by the teams that are ostensibly NOT religious but become polluted with constant references to saving our souls.
I love my teams.... wild, wacky, accountability, community, and woot, woot, helping me to keep on losing!

Don't worry. LOE'S bark is worse than his smite. Take a deep breath and relax. Just be yourself and make lots of friends. I think you'll enjoy the people here. No one will shove religion in your face.
