RE: My Fondest Childhood Memory Is

This will really be dating me but every third Thursday in August, the Sunday School sponsored a bus trip to Coney Island. We cooked all the food the day before and a lot of us ate it on the bus. The rides were great. I went on the Cyclone, the Tornado and the Thunderbolt roller coasters. If you remember the Steeplechase, that was one ride I was scared of falling off. At least the memories are still there. cheering yay

RE: Have you ever just sat and thought,, Damn I've been through a lot of s*...?

Exactly the same with me Bearwoman. How in the world did I do it? I think we all have inner strength we can draw from during those horrible times. We are stronger than we know.peace

RE: What is your pet peeve?

People who are pronouncing the word contribute differently now:

RE: My computer was hyacked again. It was frozen solid, a phone number to call a techincian was given

This is what I do when those pesky warning messages pop up on my machine. Then from the task manager delete the program I got the message in. I usually run a quick scan after just to make sure things are ok.

RE: Women and men......Partner and other forced/violent sex....

All sorts of environments is so right, even marriages. Imagine not being able to say no to your husband! Anything said was just an excuse . . . "all you have to do is lay there." Long ago and far away a dumb woman with no one to talk to about it, no where to turn, managed to endure for 10 years. Left when the beatings started.

RE: Phobias

I have trypophobia. I just found out what it was. All I originally knew was that seeing a certain pattern of holes bothered me immensely. Sounds utterly crazy, bonkers. blues

RE: The Crab.....

Big business, Cigarettes! Where else can you market and sell something that is a proven health risk? It just seems crazy. Yet in some areas they shut down kids lemonade stands because they don't have a license. Go figure!frustrated

RE: Hoarding

It has been unaddressed but the TV show "Hoarding - Buried Alive" really gives a glimpse into the mindset of the mentally ill. That said, this series cashes in on the illnesses of some people.sad flower

RE: Ladies which of these songs, would you consider making love to?

Got to be the Teddy Bear, Teddy Pendergrass, Another Love TKO heart wings

RE: My younger sister is dying I have just been told..............

This describes what happened to my sister. She was really overweight in the beginning and I wonder if this is why through treatments (radiation/chemo) she held on for so long (8 years). She entered hospice and was given morphine by mouth on a regular basis. She had no pain but slept most of the time. She was about 80 pounds when she finally passed away. Managing pain is very important and should be addressed constantly.

RE: Abuse

All of them in one marriage. blues

RE: Old starts at around 90 years that is when you BEGIN to get old, keep that in mind whippersnappers

I agree with age being a state of mind. Sometimes I forget how old I am, so I'm sure it's not important.cheering

The Assassination of Gianni Versace

I looked on Wikipedia and it never mentions the water in Cunanan's obit. I know I didn't dream it. I've been on bus trips to Parris Island. It's a ways from Aiken.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace

No I'm not obsessed. I was just alive when it happened in real life. He did kill himself but the picture I remember is them pulling his body out of the water. Yes, it was on live TV!!!

The Assassination of Gianni Versace

The series ended the night of March 21, 2018. It was an interesting representation of Maureen Orth's book Vulgar Favors. I know things are embellished in the movie but is there anyone out there who remembers the real death of Andrew Cunanan? How it really happened?

RE: OLDIES

Anything by Teddy Pendergrass. He was great. Also all the Bee Gees were fantastic.cheering cheering cheering

RE: Pickle Craving During Pregnancy

RE: What are your bad points?

Too trusting and willing to give people too many chances.

RE: Pickle Craving During Pregnancy

I had to have mayonnaise sandwiches. Nothing on the bread but mayonnaise.confused

RE: Whats been the highlight of your new year so far.

The highlight of my new year so far:

Being in the south and reading about and seeing that snow in the northeast. When I lived up there I panicked when snow was forecast. Trying to find someone to help me dig out. crying It's a lot better down here. applause

RE: For WOMEN only

Ohhhh, darn, you really are smart. I thought I had cropped my walker and oxygen tank out of the picture.

RE: Sleep

And most doctors do not seem to think not sleeping well is a problem. I wonder what a doctor would do if he had to operate and the night before he didn't sleep? dunno

RE: Sleep

Hi Cachuchi,

I've had sleep problems for such a long time. Can't get to sleep, wake up when I do fall asleep and take 2 or 3 hours to get back to sleep. I know I am sleep deficient. When I mention it to my doctor he says "do you think you have sleep apnea?" I'm sure I don't have that and if I tried to do a sleep study, I would probably not sleep the whole night so it would be a waste, according to a sleep study technician.

You mentioned having a EEG done. Did a doctor recommend it? This is the first time I've seen another possible test for lack of sleep.

Thanks.

RE: For WOMEN only

OK, here goes:

Me: Thank you for contacting me and your complement. I notice though that you are about 100 miles away!

GUY: Distance is no object to me. I think we can get to know each other with email and the phone.

Me: email and phone are great but I think there needs to be face to face to learn about each other and with so much distance, I don't think that is possible.

GUY: I disagree. After talking and emailing we can progress to actually meeting each other.

Me: That sounds nice but travelling 100 miles just to meet for the first time puts a lot of pressure on the meeting. I would expect chatting over coffee and lunch and maybe walking thru town.

GUY: That sounds really nice. But what if we like each other?

Me: I would presume we would make plans to see each other again.

GUY: But what if we REALLY like each other??

THE END .sigh
