There is a UU "church" in my city that I really like, but it is about as far east as I am west, and I'm too cheap, too broke, and too lazy to drive 18 miles to go anywhere early Sunday morning. I am hoping that one day there will be a happening in my life that would facilitate moving to the other side of town, but for now I'm kinda rooted here. I knew it was the right place for me when the pastor said it was the place for those who have been damaged by "the church."

I take water soluble CBD oil, 2x day. I think it is helping. I changed so much stuff at once and I'm doing so much better I will give it all credit. The shop where I was getting mine was not close to home. Last week I saw they have opened a new location that is only about 4 miles from home and on my way to almost everything. I am thrilled that they are doing well enough for the new location and in my end of town!

HippieChick58 comments on Nov 25, 2018:
I'm not making handmade or homemade gifts for this year, though my daughters are all getting quilts for their next birthdays. All the quilts are about 66X76 inches, throw size. Good to cuddle under while watching TV. All the fabrics are the same, the layout of the blocks is the difference. The first to receive her gift will be my oldest, her birthday is December 5th. Her quilt is done. The second birthday is the youngest daughter's, Jan 14th, that quilt is also done. The third for my middle daughter is still in the shop to be quilted. Then when that is done I have to bind it to finish it. That birthday is not until March 15th, so I've got some time. These are the completed and ready to be gifted quilts.

HippieChick58 comments on Nov 24, 2018:
I have gone shopping twice on Black Friday, neither time for Xmas gifts. The first time was just prior to divorce when I needed some stuff to furnish the apartment I was moving into. The second time was about 4 or 5 years ago, I worked a snowy Thanksgiving day, and dropped my phone and it broke. I don't have any phone number memorized now, so I knew if I had trouble driving home from work, I was up shit creek without a paddle. I made it home and Friday morning I was at the Sprint store at opening time to replace my phone. This year the family had changed our gifting strategy. The grandbabies get gifts, the adults are entered into a gift exchange throught a web site called Elfster. Elfster allows for rules to be set up, I won't get the ex as my recipient, ex won't get me or the unmarried daughter's partner, and spouses won't draw each other. So, with just grandbabies and one other recipient, my shopping is DONE long before Black Friday.
The world laughs at us and also suffers under Dump’s presidency.

I was in Kindergarten. The principal came into the classroom and told us the president had been shot. He was crying, the teacher started crying, and a whole bunch of 5 years olds got totally freaked out!! So, I got home and the parents were crying. My dad NEVER cried. More freak out that went on for days. And then I noticed the calendar had only ONE MORE PAGE on it, and I was totally convinced the world was ending. A few days later my mom put up a new calendar.... I asked how she could do that, and I learned about calendars. I was so relieved!! I'm convinced my mom thought I'd lost my mind. I think that was the defining moment of my childhood.
I sure do remember these.

My daughter will have worked out a timeline for when every step needs to be done, she did not get that organizational skill from me. I will be taking a side dish, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and apples with a sweetish crunchy topping. It is quite good, really, and vegan as some of the partner's family keeps vegan. I am sure there will be enough food for half an army.

HippieChick58 comments on Nov 21, 2018:
One of the first things I notice is the teeth. Not sure why. If the teeth are not cared for, ewwww. They shouldn't be snow white, that is just not natural. It's ok if they're crooked, not everyone could afford or really needed orthodontics. Teeth won't be a deal breaker, but it is something that gets my attention.

HippieChick58 comments on Nov 21, 2018:
We had our family Thanksgiving on Sunday. Tomorrow my middle daughter and her partner are hosting the partner's family, and daughter has included me, and her dad too. So twice this week I get to spend time with my ex, however I will bear it for our daughter. Some of the partner's family is vegan, so I am making a vegan side dish to add to the table. There will be booze available, and it is late enough in the day that the ex should not hang around too long. I don't think there will be any little kids. The "kids" (partner's nephews) are 20ish, and beautiful specimens of young manhood, and vegans.

Most often they're all locked, I usually come and go by the garage with an automatic opener.

Why Not Date Men That Have Already Grown Up? Not Everyone Has a Peter Pan Personality.
HippieChick58 comments on Nov 19, 2018:
I have rarely met a guy that gave me an urge to tell them to grow the hell up. In fact I can think of two that I have dated in the past 9 years, and it only took a few dates before we or I realized it wasn't a viable relationship. This guy above, yeah he's pretty, I can't say he looks grown up, just doesn't ring my chimes. Why would you continue a relationship ship with a man who isn't grown up? I generally feel that when I meet men they're telling me and showing me who they are. They are as grown up as they are going to get. If they aren't "grown up" enough or otherwise suitable for me, I'm not going to beg them to change, and I'm not going to change for them. I'm going to walk away (or run if he is bad enough). The only time you can change a man (or a woman for that matter) is when they are in diapers.

Thursday I have a second dinner with other family and a request that I make something vegan as several of the guests are vegan, so I will make that again.
‘Nothing on this page is real’: How lies become truth in online America - The Washington Post
HippieChick58 comments on Nov 18, 2018:
By Eli Saslow November 17 at 7:40 PM NORTH WATERBORO, Maine — The only light in the house came from the glow of three computer monitors, and Christopher Blair, 46, sat down at a keyboard and started to type. His wife had left for work and his children were on their way to school, but waiting online was his other community, an unreality where nothing was exactly as it seemed. He logged onto his website and began to invent his first news story of the day. “BREAKING,” he wrote, pecking out each letter with his index fingers as he considered the possibilities. Maybe he would announce that Hillary Clinton had died during a secret overseas mission to smuggle more refugees into America. Maybe he would award President Trump the Nobel Peace Prize for his courage in denying climate change. A new message popped onto Blair’s screen from a friend who helped with his website. “What viral insanity should we spread this morning?” the friend asked. The more extreme we become, the more people believe it,” Blair replied. He had launched his new website on Facebook during the 2016 presidential campaign as a practical joke among friends — a political satire site started by Blair and a few other liberal bloggers who wanted to make fun of what they considered to be extremist ideas spreading throughout the far right. In the last two years on his page, America’s Last Line of Defense, Blair had made up stories about California instituting sharia, former president Bill Clinton becoming a serial killer, undocumented immigrants defacing Mount Rushmore, and former president Barack Obama dodging the Vietnam draft when he was 9. “Share if you’re outraged!” his posts often read, and thousands of people on Facebook had clicked “like” and then “share,” most of whom did not recognize his posts as satire.
