 Second Chances

I am all for second chances or more. I want as many chances as I need and so do most people, as long as no real harm is done. In a chat room, what real harm can come to us? Some people with the worst chat skills may only need a lot of help. Think […]

 Romance and Helen Trent

Romance after you are a senior: what is it? Do any of you remember Helen Trent, the Soap Opera, that began with the question, “Can she find love and happiness after 35?” Well I listened to that when I was very young because my mother had it on the radio. I always thought, WHY ask, […]

 Seventy Silly Sage

I am struggling with making judicious decisions about wise spending on home renovations and to embark on a dating adventure. I dream of my new kitchen and my guts are wrenching over the spending. I have met a Mr. Charming and the butterflies are swarming in the stomach in greater numbers than when I was […]

 Cyber Senior Dating

I have tried a few dating sites without success. They were just unmanageable; like I tried chat rooms and never found a good one till I found this one. My life was in turmoil and transition and scheduling mass amounts of time to get tech skill savvy was not on my crumpled “to do” list. […]

 Why Things Happen

I have been posting about a minor storm and my coping with 26 hours without electricity. I also had neighbors come by and drag a large limb to the side, and by some good luck there were no cars parked on that day and time. There are almost always cars parked where that limb fell. […]

 Independence versus interdependence

Independence versus interdepence is the primoral human dilemma.Do not ever think that it is not a force to be reconciled and compromises are always necessary. Nether party is ever completely satisfied; neither ever, ever, and never. I lament, bewail, and bemoan this fact and wish it it were otherwise, but that is silly and will […]
