Retired teacher, age 71, in new desert community
Anyone hate to move as much as I do? Approaching 4th move in less than 2 years...
This move is relatively easy. It's just across the hall into another room in my rooming house...but I am cleaning, sorting, packing all over again. This is starting to feel endless.

I F You Wait Too Long For The Perfect Moment It Will Pass U By
For years, I postponed getting in touch with my step-cousin. For one thing, my stepfather, whose nephew he was, had passed away in 1963. For another thing, my cousin lived 3000 away from where I lived; I lived in Los Angeles, then in San Francisco, t...

Anyone else finding Mother's Day difficult?
Anyone who has read my basic story* here would understand why this is a tough day for me. Mom's been gone for over a dozen years and, amazingly, I do miss her, and I wish I could have one last talk with her (although I might consider bringing an...

I Just Had A Scary Experience
Actually, the scary experience happened almost 2 years ago and only became truly scary a few days ago. I moved to this new town last year. I like it here but it's been lonely. At my age (72), it's not that easy to make new friends. Most of...

Are there carrots in China? Are they an authentic part of Chinese cuisine?
I once knew a woman who got hysterically angry in a Chinese restaurant in Portland, Oregon because she was served a dish with carrots. She kept screaming "There are NO carrots in China! There are NO carrots in China!!!" It was one of my mo...

I Like Listening to the Radio
Back in the 90s I was a passionate fan of Art Bell's all night radio show. I listened to it due to insomnia--and it was such a wild ride that it made my insomnia worse but I enjoyed every minute of it. At one point, I agreed to participate in a...

Does anyone understand how cell phone signal blocker sleeves work?
I just bought this flat sort of envelope made out of some kind of material that blocks cell phone waves. You put the cell phone in it and I guess it blocks the signal it puts out. But the black case came with what looks like a separate piece: It...

Is it still possible to buy an old fashioned pager that works?
I mean the kind of thing that doctors took to concerts back in the 1970s that vibrates to let you know to phone a number...? Where would you get one and how would you activate it? Do they still exist? How do they work?

I Went To The Movies Alone
One dark semi-rainy evening in Portland, Oregon, back in the 1970s, I was feeling down and decided it would cheer me up to go to a movie. I wound up at a drive-in movie. When I drove in and parked my '55 Oldsmobile, I noticed that on this rain...

I Love Old Movies
Does anyone remember a movie called Sundays and Cybelle ? What did you think of it? I found it very sad but also thought provoking. It caused riots when it was shown in theatres. And I am quite sure it would do so today.
