I was saddened to hear about Cheryl. Do you know if Mike is still living? (Only ask as it's been awhile and it sticks in my mind that he was in poor health last I knew.)


mike passed a while back.

last year we also lost psb, and the year before that billy b.

today is psb’s birthday.

sending out loving vibes to anyone who needs it.

on today especially, love to psb’s family and friends including myself.

after hate radio and the Tea Party have been pushing a whole screw up the government movement for years.

I love the whole:

after saying give all the money to the wealthy and they will take care of us for years and years and years and years.
After all, they are professional money handlers!

Thanks for info, Agnes. Comes a time, eh? When I had the idea to mosey back in and see who's still around I wasn't thinking about those who would possibly be gone (for reasons other than disinterest). The last time I tried to log in a few years back my p/w was no good. The one I used this time was much older hence the old "handle" of RonAlso which I started out with if memory serves. (Although the join date of 2014 wouldn't be when I first registered. I was thinking it was back 2007-09 or so. My posts at the Story Board would shed some light. Too bad we lost some of the older stuff. One of the threads was hilarious. Squirrel!)

Speaking of which, I had a wacky brain thing happen earlier this Summer. Everything checked out so I guess it's just an aging thing. Short story version: While reading I was unable to recognize a simple word. Could have told you the letters, but could not say the word - it was cabin. Took 20 to 30 seconds til I got it. Kept on reading and it happened 3 more times. Same type of simple words.

Leads me to another question: do any folks do the Friday night chat thing? I remember enjoying talking with folks years back. I think a gal from NZ had just started coming by which I thought was cool. Anyway . . .have a great week.

hi ron, with the name thing i remember….(it was so much less complicated at the time)(even if it sounds contrariwise) i remember “ronalso” as an offshoot of “rontoo” as opposed to “rontwo” as opposed to “ron1” haha…! we adapted as best we could as i recall, to our merit!

i do remember the lady from NZ! but i don’t remember her name,,,it seems she would refer to herself sometimes in some way as kiwi? or something like that…?

i haven’t even attempted the chat thing in ages!

as for the brain episode over summer. stress can do a whammy on your shit.
i don’t know if that is relevant, or not.

i am listening, i think it is important to have this conversation

i like elizabeth warren..i think of her as an ally

i don’t know everything, and i am listening to a perspective that i don’t specifically know about.

i get it

even if my own perspective doesn’t fit neatly within your own, it is still yet another symptom of the same type of issue. that i do know about.
