How to fast? One meal or two?

Fasting on Ash Wednesday was not something I am familiar with.  Years of not paying attention and just doing what I did when I was young etc.  Any way. I’m paying attention now. The rules of fasting is one meal or two small meals for the day.My question is what do you do for fasting?  This will be the first time I’ll be doing it.See More

David F. replied to Joshua M's discussion How important is your choice of college major (Particularly for Engineering)?
"Keeping loans down opens options later.  But key is the GPA.  You need a 3.0 min and preferred a 3.5.  No one cares how long it took so if you have to take another year for the better GPA it will be better long term."

David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.

When I was growing up, casual nudity in the locker room and showers was common.  I don't remember any guy being shy when nude around other guys, and we all saw that everybody was about the same "down there."But in today's world, casual nudity in the locker room and showers is becoming more and more rare.  And due to easily-viewed porn, many/most guys feel inadequate "down there," and both sexes gossip and bully guys outside the locker room.I feel sorry for these younger guys.  But with the…See More
