I'm a senior living off of a small pension. The cost of rent has gone up big time maybe as a result of the cost of buying houses. Greed is the
energy fueling this huge rise in the cost of rents, and it is a side effect of the free market let free in the real estate market.
People are living in tents and in cars. Children are some of these people. Shame is the word...
(not a pic of my cabin)
We just got a cabin on the lake a few months ago.. and although the foundation and exterior of the cabin is solid..the inside needs a lot of work.
We've been going up on the weekends whenever we can to do some demolition. (all the drywall and pretty much the whole inside needs to be gutted) and
People behave morally without religion then why is religion even necessary? Much of what is in the Bible seems like made up fairy tales with no
modern day evidence supporting it. So are atheists right? Since there's no evidence for God's existence and people who don't go to church behave
just a moral as those who do go to church whats the point of believing in God?
I love a good insult as I am sure most of us do, there is nothing like dropping a beauty into some light to medium banter to throw the competition off
thier guard so I thought we could have a bit of a list so we can all be well armed.
Two that spring to mind, a few days ago someone online told me to "Go step on a lego" and I have to admit...

My husband had told me he had to go on a business trip for four nights this weekend, until Wednesday. I never thought anything of it - he must travel
a lot for his work.
Until tonight, I received a confirmation from a four star hotel in Bourgogne for TWO adults those four nights. It's a great place, spa and all.
I am in shock. I am crushed. I am an idiot. A naive idiot.

I never understood the whole "Happy Holidays" thing.

I'm hoping that you are lurking, today of all days and this message may encourage you to join back in.
I want you to know how much you are thought of and often, not just on this day but all of them.
I also wanted to honor my friend, who means so much to me.
((hugs)) Louise! I miss you.
When did we let the hate take over?
Because I supported Trump I have been called a moron a redneck (thank you, even if it was meant to be an insult), and other horrible things.
We’ve seen Hollywood (I use them because they have a loud enough voice to be heard) call people horrible names because they don’t see eye to eye.
I’m not showing their tweets because...
It boils my blood it really does, why do something badly and then think it is ok?

I fear the events that lead up to death. The pain, the gasping for breath, the hospital scene.
But do I fear dying?
I don't believe in religious mythology, so when I ask this question, I am asking whether I fear the mystery that is post-death or whether I fear
Non-existence doesn't scare me at all. You exist and then a millisecond later you don't. No emotion present....
I've been following the presidential campaign for quite a long time now. Really liked Bernie and Trump, crazy as that may sound, those were the

My son went to work as normal this morning. His shift was meant to finish at 7.00pm.
About 12 noon, he became agitated with a feeling of foreboding which he could not explain. The feeling got stronger as time went by.
Around 1.00pm, his work had dried up...
