A recent news report about a package bomb at a FedEx station makes me a bit nervous.

Enough is enough! The news reported a bomb inside a package, not the first bomb to go off inside a parcel that has been termed a serial bombing and it happened in Texas and that is too close to home.

I am getting a bit paranoid about ordering anything online these days due to the recent news about people just picking up a package, one that was unexpected, on their front door steps, only to have it blow up in their face. This is madness. What kind of world is it we live in? I mean, What purpose can such an act serve? The mindless insanity that has taken place recently is only making me want to pack up and move to another planet. From Porch Pirates, Creepy Clowns, gun toting teens shooting off guns in the high schools and now another UNIBOMBER type running wild all over the place!

I won't be ordering anything online for a while , at least until they catch this mad bomber.

Read a most recent report about it here .

I avoid the news. I already know the state of this world. It will soon be over. Meanwhile, I don't largely ignore world events.

Yep. It can really make for a bad state of mind. I really do not enjoy the news. I try to keep up with what Trump is gonna do next and the weather situation that seems to be really out of control. A 4th Noreaster as they call it up in the north-east and it seems to be late in the season for it.

We're supposed to have been receiving some snow, but 3 hours later, it hasn't come. We have, as you know, that mountain range between us and West Virginia.

I live in Northern Ireland and lived through "The Troubles", working in Belfast city centre throughout the whole time. Our building was blown up 3 times in 18 months but if you want to stay sane, you don't think about it. Yes, you remain alert and follow all security and safety precautions but apart from that, I just got on with what I needed to do. The only remnant of it, for me, is that I do not like fireworks. My mother used to come across to visit each year for 10 days. Her neighbours used to ask why she was going "there", wasn't she frightened? She just shrugged. She was an air raid warden during World War II, while my father fought in the army. The news blows everything up out of proportion and makes it seem like danger is everywhere, yes it is, but not generally bombers. Crossing the road is riskier.
I see the police say the bomber blew himself up!

You are lucky to be living in the area where most of my family and myself came from originally. I wish we had stayed there long enough for me to be old enough to appreciate the land of my birth but it is only a faint memory of an infant childhood.

Yes, and we will never know his personal motives behind his actions. I have Irish ancestry also but I think you already knew that. I wonder what it would be like to return to the land of my forefathers, and take a look at Ireland for a bit. I may never get to do this as I am basically planted in the Texas soil. I am pretty sure the Irish side of me comes from my father, and he had quite the temper, at times, LOL

Oh. I'd thought you lived here for decades...

A lot of people from the US like to visit Ireland. I think many of them say it's a different way of life but you would probably find it a lot colder and damper.

That makes me wonder if the weather there has changed a lot over the past few centuries. Since I think that global warming and global climate change from CO2 emissions since the dawn of the industrial revolution in the mid 1700's, perhaps this is the case both in Ireland and other areas nearby.

I only lived my first 4 years in that my father took different jobs in different locations, from 1957 when I was born, to the early 60's when we hopped from Virginia to Georgia where my younger brother was born, in Atlanta, to live a few more years in two different residents in Indiana, then in 1963 or thereabouts, we all came down to Texas. I have been living in Dallas ever since and only wished my dad had chose to go to Galveston instead because I wanted so badly to live near the ocean. Dallas seemed like a busy city, full mainly of cars and roads and heavy traffic, even back then. And today the traffic is all over the place. You can't get from point A to point B in Dallas without some car or at least public transit on a light rail or bus. I would have liked to have just stayed in Virginia, because of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love the mountains. When I went to camp out with a friend in Colorado it was like home to me. All the trees, all the nature, all the mountains, all the rain. and the snakes. Yea. that too.
