    Completamente de acuerdo... siempre y cuando uno asuma la verdadera responsabilidad que supone ser padre / madre...
    Todavía es fácil ver padres que delegan la educación y el cuidado de sus hijos en el colegio y abuelos... y se convierten exclusivamente en proveedores... Ser padre lleva mucho tiempo... 24h al día, independientemente de que tu hija/o esté o no en el colegio y has de ceder gran parte de ese tiempo para poder ayudarle/a en su crecimiento...
    Firmado, un padre feliz :)

    Hola,

    es fácil sea el siglo que sea, soló que realmente te tiene que gustar los críos, tener muy claro que quieres realmente ser madre y realizarte como madre.

    Ser madre sea ya las veces que sea que se es, es una de las más maravillosa y importante de nuestra vida.

    Y los hombres nunca sabrán, saben ni sienten ni sentirán nada igual, porque aunque ellos se han un mínimo en la parte de esa creación conjuntamente, nunca sabrán realmente como nos sentimos nosotras los 9 meses y cuando llega el final donde sentimientos esos típicos y normales dolores de la etapa final, donde sientes esa enorme sensación de dolores y a la vez emoción total, y lo más grandiosoes ccuando por primera vez te lo colocan encima de tu barriga recientemente nacido de dentro de ti misma, nunca nadie que no haya experimentado esa grandiosa emoción y sensación de ser madre.
    Ser madre no es una tarea fácil, pero por experiencia propia dos hijas que tengo maravillosas, ser madre al final es bonito y muy fácil.

    Besos, abrazos vibraciones positivas energía, todos mis respetos y mayores deseos

    "That whole construct came from humans at a fragile point in our development. We understood little of our natural world and we were dying early and often, so stories of vengeance may have offered comfort then, but should atrophy as our knowledge progresses."

    #33 (part 2) Children's dependency on others for survival & love goes beyond the early years. What we don't yet know is how decisions of adult (eg "trans dad gives birth" or surrogate mum & those chemical signals between parent & unborn) vs biological ("natural") design will play out in future generations.

    The concluding part of your comment about choice, at the point of creation, without judgement sounds very similar to something called Access Consciousness.

    Thanks for sharing some of the principles here @Numo Quest; they are interesting to read. ☺
    Tricia Mitchell
    13/08/2017 #40 Tricia Mitchell
    #33 thanks for contributing your perspective, @Numo Quest While reading your comments a few things sprung to mind in response to your comment that: "The child isn't engaged with much else then just that. It changes on the moment adults start to bring in 'aspects'"
    1) Bruce Lipton states that a child BEGINS learning the rules of the world in which it is to be born in-utero, specifically from 6 months onwards.
    2) Parents may actively teach babies, but babies are LEARNING through observation & modelling, earlier than the period you state it commences. The first 6-7 years of life, they are operating in beta and delta brainwaves (& if mum believes the world is a dangerous place, the baby alters physically in preparation for entering that world, according to mum's map of it) https://www.healyourlife.com/are-you-programmed-at-birth

    Another principle states following, don't put focus and energy in things one can't change.
    While I agree, the "issue" I & many others have come across is that people do not realise or believe we can change things. I have permission to share that working with a client born with "old lady's" hands (as she described them), I was curious as to what may be possible, not taking a stance that we couldn't change it. Past live trauma resolved, her hands continued to look younger each day. My thinking? If cells renew every 30 days & David Hamilton says there's 99.99 recurring space between atoms, hell, let's give it a shot. There are other examples of what can change when we are open to being curious...

    #37 Thank you dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for your clear and honest opinion; I would expect nothing less from you and completely respect your views. And you're right about those '2/3rds' - they are often more human that we are!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    12/08/2017 #37 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #36 First of all, I want to dispute the 2/3rd in the dark ages, I think those outside the industrial world live a more human life and I'd like for us to model them, not for them to catch up to us. Of course, potable water, sewage, and such are mandatory, we should be working full out to ensure sustainable access for every human. I do believe we have the data that there are too many of us for the earth to carry and we can figure out a way to have a realistic world population.

    And this ever growing number of humans is part of my thoughts around not believing in reincarnation. If there was a finiteness/distinctiveness to souls the math doesn't work with explosive population growth.

    I have no personal sense or experience of being anyone or anything but Deb. I have been an atheist since 15. I believe consciousness as we experience it is god, and that in all the various forms the stories of religion are metaphors for this very fact. Being comfortable without a supreme being, I am also quite comfortable with consciousness being an emergent property that only occurs when a biological entity, from an amoeba on up, including all plants and animals, sustains life.

    But each different type of organism has a different level of consciousness equipment. Just like plants don't have legs like animals, the structure defines the expression of the consciousness of life.

    I have never had a moment of worry about being dead, although I have human fears about the process of how I will die or around living in terror. As a cartoon in the New Yorker illustrated, I've imagined I've booked my departure for 4:33 am on a Monday morning, in my bed, asleep.

    I understand other people's belief in reincarnation through the lens of the collective unconscious - ancestral memory - unified field. We are not the program, we are the TV set, while we function, we can be tuned to numerous programs.

    #35 I agree my friend @Deb 🐝 Helfrich...we need to chew the cud! Ruminate, resonate, take TIME to figure out!
    But to the last paragraph I'm answering; the rest remains a mystery! Are you offering that you believe in reincarnated souls? I know my bent is towards one life - sufficient time for me, but I'm curious, enthralled perhaps that others could well believe in reincarnation; many do, and I respect their beliefs, but then I think of brutal eras, famine, senseless killing, illness, starvation....none of my imaginings include being in a position of privilege no matter the date. We may be in 'enlightened times', but that for only us. 2/3rds of the world are still in the dark 'ages' with all the want and brutality that invokes. Sorry...been writing poetry for my new baby granddaughter - it affects the way my mind speaks!! I also agree that it would take a higher power to 'decide' we need to go around again, but he (or she) is not vengeful, love will turn around! Hoping you'll come back on me with this; with respect!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    12/08/2017 #35 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #25 #28 One thing is for sure, whatever the higher power may actually be, there will be no vengeance for open-hearted inquiry.

    That whole construct came from humans at a fragile point in our development. We understood little of our natural world and we were dying early and often, so stories of vengeance may have offered comfort then, but should atrophy as our knowledge progresses.

    Believing punishment accomplishes anything but the cessation of love is one of our species current tragic flaws.

    And it feels like, to me, this is occurring because the internet is helping us to see each human as part of the web of humanity. It was a bumpy start, but we can see the shift from angry to accepting to caring happening all around us.

    As now, anyone, anywhere can read a different point of view about something like consciousness in the womb that is difficult to dive into over a hot beverage. Well, initiating the topic is strange, not hard. What I believe to be difficult is having the ability to cogitate for a bit, rather than having to answer within the quick turn-around of verbal communication before we can examine our own rote answers and spend a moment searching if we might have come across new information that allows us to examine the topic anew, rather than simply repeat an answer long ago drummed into us.

    12/08/2017 #33 Numo Quest
    In case of a child, from our and universal principle perspective, a child is born with character, talents and soft skills, we start to 'support' it on the moment we know how and in which fields. Since the one child isn't the other, there is a difference. Every individual is unique. By this concept the child in the first year is focused on 'need'. Every child has the reflex of survival and does by nature everything in it's power, to survive by getting what it thinks it need. This reflex is the bases for existence until the moment, the parent starts to guide the child, in line with character and talent, the social part. The child needs to learn to develop its social skills.
    The child isn't engaged with much else then just that. It changes on the moment adults start to bring in 'aspects', in all Love and caring, no doubt, like you are explaining and portraying. Until then a child plays, has fun, enjoys life, has ideas, start to develop.

    Another principle states following, don't put focus and energy in things one can't change. If this life's principle is in the child as an ordinary part of life and existing, the child will deal with things in life accordingly. On the moment the adult deems it should be raised an issue, for what ever reason, then indeed it will become an issue for the child. Still not altering anything in the past.

    From our experience, every moment in time has it's point of creation, choice, for every individual, without judgement or limitation, regardless your experiences of, and in the past, you are here now, as you are, unique. You have Choice and Creation. Either, dwell in a way you can't alter and put focus and energy, without changing past tense facts, or in one step say, I know that I am, hence from here I create and make my choices. Both are good, without judging, merely the question, what is it YOU want? :O)

    #27 Thanks for sharing your experience, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher & for sharing this buzz. I tried to tag you in comment #31, as your comments made me think of it, but it wasn't having any of it!

    I think we come from Source, return to Source and the bit in between is our life, learning, growing, experiencing and a process of remembering who we truly are. I love how you experienced positive changes relating to your son once you stayed at home - something that not everybody is able to do. (Sounds like your daughter was in a hurry!)

    Amazing story from when you were 18 months old. Lights obviously hold a special meaning for you. It's great when we have elders who can confirm our childhood memories & I find it fascinating when people or children can remember even being in the womb. I don't have any recollections before the age of 4 years old. Hey ho! Appreciate you contributing.

    #27 A friend shared this (author unknown):
    THE SOUL IN THE CAVERN

    There was a soul whose time had come to take a human birth and so it went to the great cavern, where all such souls went. In the cavern were hundreds of thousands of souls, each manifesting a small blue flame. When its turn came, the soul stood up and said.
    “My time has come to take human incarnation, for I have work to do and many lessons to learn. In my life as human I shall need family and loving friends to help me, to love me and to nurture me. Who will be my family on earth?

    A ripple flickered across the thousands of flames and shortly a few stood forward and said.
    “We do no know you, we have not met before and we are strangers, but being kind and giving love is a pleasant and easy task. We will be your friends and family on earth.”

    The soul spoke out and again said.
    “And on earth I shall need teachers, people to guide me, to correct me and to discipline me. Who will be my teachers?”
    Again a ripple went out around the assembled flames, and a group came forward and said.
    “We have known you in other lives and we have grown to respect you and like you. We will take on the task of being your teachers in life.”

    And a third time the soul spoke out and said.
    “On earth if I am to learn the retest lesson of all, the lesson of humility, tolerance under provocation and to love those who hate me, I shall need people to hate me and to do violence to me. Who will do this for me? Who will be my enemies?

    There was a long pause in the cavern until at last a small group came forward and said.
    “We are your soul group, we have known you over aeons of time and your growth and your learning are as dear to us as our own. This is the most delicate and difficult task and if you are to be hurt and abused it would be better done by loving friends. We will be your enemies on earth.

    #28 thank you for your honest and open response @Lisa Vanderburg I appreciate you sharing your experience of Catholicism. love that we can hold different points of view and still remain receptive to explorations without any investment in the outcome. To be honest, I'm not one who remembers much; it's what I'm continuing to learn now about where I have been and what I know as a result. I've written about a couple of my surreal experiences. Flexibility and freedom will allow us to evolve. Have a blessed day, my dear. ☺

    Interesting topic @Tricia Mitchell. This made me think of death too (but not in a morbid manner). Does consciousness begin at birth and excelerate at death? A question many people have. I believe our souls are energy and energy transfers. One simple thought I keep close to my heart, positive ions attract positive and vice versa for negative ions.

    I think the process of birth is underscored. My son had a difficult birth and he was colicky and cried a lot. He was also sick a lot his first 2 yrs of life until I decided to take time off from work and stay home with him. I noticed many positive changes once I was home full time. My daughter's birth was easy in contrast.. 2 pushes and out she came without incident.

    Quick story, I was about 18 mos old when my parents took their first trip with me. I remember vividly seeing beautiful lights and I kept saying, 'ooooh, pretty lights." My mom couldn't believe I had that memory. I even knew we were on a bridge crossing over into Canada. Mom confirmed my memory was correct and she was shocked I had the memory. I have never lost my lust for lights at night!

The $250 DNA test was free, plus I got $30 in gift cards for groceries and free parking. It was like winning the lottery. :) Here's the link: https://fhs.mcmaster.ca/pbcar/path.html

    As far as the weight thing goes, I have to say, my weight is primarily a choice. I have never given myself permission to be grossly overweight. A lot of people really don't care how they look. I could easily be 40 lbs heavier, if I allowed it, but perhaps I'd never weigh 300 lbs. I am not sure how much stock I would actually place in those tests. My test results also revealed that my ring finger is likely longer than my index finger (it isn't) and that I don't have any dimples, but I actually do, and they aren't just in my ass! In fact, they were the most commented on trait of mine when I was a child.

    Very interesting, Kevin. I hear that a lot of people are also doing this via Ancestry. I suppose the only downside -- similar to personal data -- is allowing companies to keep your DNA samples which could be used in the future for other uses -- with some possible nefarious purposes like hypothetically selling to drug companies and health insurers, as one's genetic information can predict predisposition to certain illnesses and medical conditions. Just saying.
    Now, let's raise a pint to the luck of the Irish!

    This is a very timely post. I just got my results back from 23 and Me. They look at your DNA in terms of your ancestry, health and physical traits. I always thought of myself as French, but apparently, my DNA is only 4% French and German. 64% of my DNA is actually British and Irish. What is even more interesting is that while my Neanderthal ancestry is less than 4% I am actually in the 83rd percentile among 23 and Me customers. Damn! That may explain a few things...
    On the upside, it doesn't look like I will succumb to late onset Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. I am also genetically predisposed to remain slim and have the muscle composition of an elite power athlete. Too bad I can't hit, catch or throw a ball. :)

    We all miss moments and opportunities but your message speaks volumes for the perspective of time, understanding, letting go, remembering and knowing that even in those lost moments, those unspoken works, there is a truth to love that outlast the mistakes (real or perceived).

    “The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.”

    --William James

    “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence.”

    --Betty M. Nelson

    Walk proud @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and stand tall for a life well lived--apparent, hidden just under the surface and at times totally unseen. An outlasting life of excellence that because of him and your mom lives on in the portrait of you.

    @🐝 Fatima G. Williams When we humans become parents we don't get a manual that tells us how to "parent'. We do the best we can. When our parents get sick and eventually die, we kids don't get the manual that tells us what to do. We do the best we can. When we siblings lose our brothers/sisters at far too tender an age, there is never a manual that tells us what to do. We do the best we can. By all the comments below, you have many friends in the bee community with many wise words who have been shown, told, coached to "do the best we can." You will never lose the pain of losing Dad. It will be with you forever. But you can turn all that pain into joy by focusing only on the goodness of the man and happiness he brought you and others. You can turn your own pain into joy by thinking upon all the gifts that he gave you (the strength, the resilience, the sense of humour and wonder and the huge capacity to share and to love). You can talk to him every day and thank him for what he gave you. He wants you to be blissfully happy and joyful. And to do and be the best that you can. A Huge hug to you my friend.

    I can feel the void left by my progenitor. Losing a parent creates a heartache which could never be healed however strong we become. The fear of losing our loved one kills us and that have been killing me day in and day out. We than start blaming ourselves that where did we fail taking care of them. I faltered because ........ There could be many reasons which could make us inconsolable throughout our life. It needs courage to talk about our grief because bottling up would lead to a dangerous burst.

    Dads are a funny bread. Most feel and sense their children deeply, but always they want desperately for them to have the strength to live past them. So they hide their "self" and build their family.

    I have two wonderful daughters who love me and would do anything to help. My only wish is to see that they can face the world and find peace and joy within their heart.

    For a dad to know that their children will make it based on the knowledge they have passed on is a triumph that can not be described.

    Prove dads thoughts right, take what he has given and build your life and keep in mind the torch he passed is now your responsibility to pass to the next. From what i have read here your dad was an awesome person and passed a torch that shines brightly, and aptly named @🐝 Fatima G. Williams.

    I have two fathers and Jhonny died next to my mother in bed and im pretty sure if he could choose his death thats how he would of wanted it. I am sure your father knew you loved him. It sounds like you were very active in his life. I know people who dont see thei parents for years. They come after the funeral and pawn their stuff, so having guilt because he didnt see you get married or.because you didnt spend enough time with him is just not how you should look back on your time togethet. Your name is Fatima. The fathers favorite daughter. I am sure you were loved and loved. Now i think all you can do is tell your children wonderful bedtime stories about your dada when you make your own family.

    This is so deep and touching. Fatima, don't beat up yourself with, "If Only." You can't change the past and he knew you loved him. I am sorry for how hard his passing has been on you and your family. There are many nights when the pain is so great and you cry yourself to sleep. You would give anything to see them, talk to them, hug them just one more time. Death is the hardest thing to deal with and it never gets easier. There is nothing anyone could have done. When our hourglass is full we must leave this earth. I read many posts but this is one that will remain with me. Thanks for the remainder and for this wonderful tribute of your father.

    You are completely spot on, pointing out that the "roots" are essential.
    Sadly enough, we have entered in a spiral of selfishness. Games are "solo" intended, in comparison to the games we used to play. Friendships are virtual.
    Old people are not respected anymore, just pushed away of our lives as an old broken toy.
    People wrongly understand that in order to keep their safety, not to be harmed, need to put distance to others, not to get involved or committed.
    Part of the happiness is as well take the risk of being harmed, trust the others, knowing that they are imperfect too, same as you, and will make errors. So what? Making errors is human, and accepting them is divine.

    Part 1/2

    David, I read this earlier to day and then again.

    Watched the Jack Nicholson & Hellen Hunt clip.

    Read your Catching Butterflies post and this end passage made my mind jump to an interesting book...

    ..."So better change your strategy, and enhance your “garden”, yourself, your environment, the things you do, how you do them, get rid of the “garbage”, act as if you were used to be surrounded by butterflies,
    and they will come pleasantly and willingly to pose in your nose."

    And the book is one of my favourite Audible books, Being There by Jerzy Kosinski, Narated by Justin Hoffman.

    And the part in the book your Butterfly flew me to was where the President of the United States of America asks the books unlikely hero, Chase the gardener,
    "And you Mr Gardener, what do you think about the bad season on the street?"

    Chance flustered within, reflects to the only love he has ever had, his garden, reflects, then calmly says.

    Pt2...

    Commitment, building and maintaining. Impossible to have a long lasting relationship without them.
    Well done, Harvey, a usual is a pleasure reading your enlightening comments.

    #15 your words of "do what is in the best interests of both persons" makes me think about the other day, when my love told me how could it be I was all the time thinking about how to make her feel better. My response was, that this was my purpose, to make her happy. She asked, what are you doing for yourself to be happy? My answer, I don't know, I am somehow blind to it, this is your purpose, not mine.
    To give not expecting a payback, this is love. Out of this, is a trade, if you do expect a payback.

    So I see you have a three strands cord:
    "Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
    A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:12)

    Great post and i would suspect that as the word love has evolved within media so marriage has evolved. Marriage is a commitment of a shared journey. The grass is always greener on the other side but even that grass will require maintaining at some point. I went to a conference on marriage and the speaker really brought forward the concept of where marriage has failed.

    We spend more time designing and purchasing a home or a car than we spend on "building" our marriage. This statement really struck me, mainly because i had never considered that building a marriage was necessary as we loved each other. Even further thought was perplexing, how do you build a marriage? I had nothing.

    The next few years i started to understand that building a marriage was going through change and understanding the bridges that needed to be built for the next leg of the journey. Previously i had only seen these bridges as my spouses need to change or she looking at me and expecting me to change. We laugh at it now but it was a challenging time in our life and i am glad that we learned how to build bridges together.

    Great post and thoughts.

    @David Navarro López "we have forgotten that marriage is “us” instead of “I and you”." This is why marriage is so difficult. A couple has to learn to listen to each other and do what is in the best interests of both persons. If a compromise is needed, it has to be done with willingness and not resentfulness. It's about a lifetime of communication. It's about sacrifice and commitment to make it work. In my case, it's about putting God in the centre of our marriage. A very thoughtful buzz. Thanks David.

    #13 This is why I added the link to the butterflies buzz at the end. Sometimes we are wrong on trying to find love in the first place, instead of building ourselves first, to have something to share with.

    #12 I love your descripition @David Navarro López! Love does change and sadly there will always be some who don't experience it. I hope one day they do if they choose or can find true love. It's well worth the trials and tribulations that most couples face.

    #11 Exactly dear Lisa, "Marriages that work develop love that is not easy to explain"
    If one has only experienced the lack of it, can only see what love is not, but not what it really is.
    Love changes, due to the fact that each individual changes too, and this make the relationship, change, evolve, and in the best case, to get enhanced.
    I saw many times my parents understanding each other just with a glance. Later, I have been able to experience it myself, and it is much more enriching as it seems at first sight. Both enter in a secret place on which no one except them can see clearly what goes on, a safe place on which everything is simple, clear and secure. This secret place can only be built by the complicity, together with forgetting willingly some of our "selfish rights", in order to taste the overwhelming flavour of the honey of having the soul caressed, abandoned to each other.

    Well said @David Navarro López. Marriage is give and take. It's mutual and doesn't come without it's challenges. There are many legitimate reasons not to stay in a marriage, eg: Abuse, cheating, no love or friendship and the list can go on. But, we all face challenges IE: raising children together, work, finances, differing opinions and more- those things can be remedied and with time, we move on and appreciate where we were vs. where we are today. Marriages that work develop love that is not easy to explain. Love changes with time. It becomes a deep and rooted friendship along with respect and understanding of the other that changes the dynamics. Thanks for this.

    #7 You know better my friend David as you are in the maintenance and repair business. You know well that sometimes you were called over long distances to repair a machine and to your surprise the repair was so simple to avoid attention. Isn't this a form of turning the simple into complex? For more details, you may check my buzz of today. BTW- I wrote a presentation on "Customers Maintenance" two years ago. Maintenance is needed for humans as much as we need it for machinery.

    #67 As long as nobody is trying to "run" me, I'm happy. Love begins within oneself. If you genuinely love who you are, then you will never need anyone to give you some sense of completion. Looking for that in another will only lead to disappointment. Also, if your relationship with yourself is completely healthy, then your partner will always feel safe with you. With that comes, trust, security, etc., assuming both partners are equally emotionally balanced. If one partner is "off" so to speak, then the relationship will be challenged in ways that will undermine its success. That's my take on things, for whatever it is worth. :)

    Oh, may the universe not judge me harshly.

    I fear that My new company, "Divorce Logistics Enterprises" may surpass Facebook by 2020.

    I haven't even finished the business plan (I just started working on it about 10 minutes ago)...and I've already been booked for "60 Minutes" and "Time" wants to start working on a cover story.

    #69 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian I'm increasingly discovering that so much of the advice that I ignored ...has resulted in really hard puzzles that I would never have bought even at a yard sale;

    and yet, your previous comment has quickly (seed-like) "sprouted" into this evolving vision for an "end to end" divorce solution business.

    I even said to myself: why not actually name the thing: "Divorce Logistic Enterprises" (DLE).
    the lawyers would just be one group of employees, along with CPA's, Counselors, Investment Planners, etc. (working under one of 50 "State Specific Compliance Divisions")...which in turn would be part of an "Interstate Coordination Best Practices Department"...
    ...etc.

    The vision is growing faster than I can articulate it...
    ...and even stranger; every bit of seems "metaphysically wrong" to me.

    We humans are a strange lot; I've never thought of myself as an entrepreneur --I am opposed to the purpose of this thing; and simultaneously; I'm seeing the blueprint for the whole thing draw itself, accompanied by a feeling of divine inspiration...like "a calling".

    Ye Gods!

    Profound, yet so simple, @Paul Kearley! But to actually see someone clearly and ask how they're doing requires us to get out of our own heads and lives first, right? And put down the cell phone. Look around. Oh, and listen to the answer . . .

    Beautiful story, Paul. I always look forward to your posts. The best thing about giving love and caring about others is that one way or another, it gets you more love. Feeling love is as beautiful as being loved. When you offer love to others with no expectation of receiving anything, you can actually love yourself more. By nurturing your relationship with yourself, you will naturally have better relationships with others. It's a continuous cycle that feeds our souls and is really very simple to do. You only need to cast off your inhibitions and want to. Love completely changes the quality of our lives. Such is the power of being loving.

    Congrats new Granddad! He is beautiful. I love the Scottish lullaby and the message contained within. I have hope for the future generations because so many now having children are thinking globally for their children's sake and also seem to going back to a time that I remember- teaching respect for elders, love for humanity over materialism and so much more. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful time in your lives. I had tears (happy ones) reading this and seeing the photos. We are on the road (well not literally, now), in a hotel for night but we will arrive to see our grandboys in 3 days, it's been almost a year. I can relate to the questions they ask so innocently and I also have time to understand the innocence so much more now that I'm not raising kids. Can't put a price tag on that!
