Retired teacher, age 71, in new desert community
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.

Anyone find the sound of a breathing device (Cpak...?) as creepy as I do?
My upstairs roommate sleeps with this breathing device and it makes this horror movie sound effect...very creepy. When I first moved in, I'd awaken in the night and hear this sound and have anxiety attacks. It took me weeks to figure out what it...

Have you ever insulted someone only to discover this someone is very, very powerful?
I've done it. Not one of my brighter moves. I know that this person would kill me if she could and the only thing stopping her is that she lives 2000 miles from me and her power circle only extends a few hundred miles from her home, with connect...

It's my birthday. Could you wish me a Happy B'day?
It's actually a few hours from now; I was born late at night. I will be 72. I don't know how I've lived this long. It's a miracle.

I Dont Like Arrogant Rude People
I grew up in a world of left wing extremists. I was a red diaper baby (both parents were in the Communist Party) but a reject from communist youth training and kept out of the loop as far as knowing much about it. I had a miserable childhood with a r...

Ever known anyone you loved but knew you could not trust?
Not just a lover, but close friends you've known a long time, maybe all or most of your life. I know a lot of such people. I can think of three people I know of whom I am very fond--but I know I cannot trust them at all, in any serious way. In...

Anyone here ever met a "patient advocate"?
I have heard of such people. They are even listed in the booklet of services my HMO provides (Kaiser Permanente). Last year, I was in bad shape, in and out of the hospital. No one seemed to be able to put me in touch with a patient advocate. The staf...

Have you ever known a person who was not pretty but who was stunningly, naturally attractive?
I have known a number of such people in my life. When I decided to post this, I was thinking about a woman I used to work with. Men were drawn to her and even fairly shy and stable men found themselves flirting with her. She was quite fat, though fit...
