Ain't Happening

I have decided to become an isolationist. It is the way to go for me. No depending on anyone for anything. There is a man, I have known for 40+ years. We were good friends for many of those years. He was not my type, other than a friend. A good...

Under Millennial Age

There are so many younger people on here.  By younger, I mean 13 or so.  I only became aware of this due to so many friend requests.  I do not accept new friends without checking their profile or sending a pm to aknowledge their request.  In doing...

House Guest Gone, Gone, Gone !

My grandson has left my home.  He was suppose to accomplish a few tasks and did nothing but go to work.  We were hoping if he stayed with me, he would not be with his drug addicted girlfriend.  So much for that idea. Don't know if he is doing drugs or...

Feelings are contagious

If you’re happy and you know it, thank your friends—and their friends. And while you’re at it, their friends’ friends. But if you’re sad, hold the blame. Researchers from Harvard Medical School and the University of California, San Diego have found...

Down in the Dumps

I just took an online quiz as a lark to see if I am as depressed as I feel.  Know thyself.  The quiz came back and said "severe depression".  I do not buy in to the label as much as I am aware that I am depressed.  A lack of sleep can account for a...

Yankee Swap Gift dilemma

Ok folks, I have a problem.  I need to buy a gift $50 or under as a Yankee Swap Gift.  We then draw numbers and get to select any package we want.  Every year I try to buy something I want, just in case.  We have been doing this for years.  We used to...
