HippieChick58 comments on Jul 3, 2018:
I think it is fear that is preached by politicians. Their divide and conquer system tells folks that the new comers might take what they have recently achieved. "they're different" When you have been deprived it is hard to let go of the fear, they don't realize it isn't pie, there is enough for all; and different is not evil or bad, it is just not what you're used to.

Rural Nebraska German immigrants always pronounce Creek as CRICK. When I want to wig my daughters out, I say crick just to let them stew. What gets my goat is when someone says Warshington, or warsh machine. There is no R in wash! One of my kids' teachers in Washington State always said WARSH. And I am thinking "why are you teaching children, especially mine?"

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 2, 2018:
Go to the closest shop that sells essential oils, buy oil of cloves. Saturate a cotton ball w/the oil and another oil and hold it against your gum above the hurting tooth. It will give you about 5 hours of relief. I did that the night before an emergency root canal. And it is what Dustin Hoffman was using in Marathon Man. It isn't a fix, it is just to give you temporary relief.

For me, appearance matters very little. Good hygiene, hair as they prefer, skin color or race doesn't matter. Non religious and liberal matter. Interests can vary. They should have their own and some that overlap with mine. I don't really expect or want company in my sewing room, but someone to go to estate sales, travel, do yard work/gardening with. They must like cats.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I don't bake as much as I used to, but I still have vanilla beans in 100-proof vodka in my pantry. Man that stuff is dark, been there for 3 or 4... or 5 years. I also made vanilla sugar and vanilla salt. Cut up the beans and mix into salt or sugar, let it sit, shake every few months. Gives the salts or sugars a vanilla taste. The vanilla salt is really good on ice cream.

Do you like to fly?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I don't mind flying, it gets me there faster. However, if the airplane is too crowded or too long I tend to get a bit claustrophobic. Too many other people breathing the same air. Small town airports are interesting. If you ever have a chance to fly into Grand Island, NE you think you're going to crash in a corn field and then the runway appears like magic!!

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I agree. Religions are meant to keep people apart, to divide and conquer. I have no issues with gender fluid persons, all I ask is that they forgive me when I mess up pronouns because I'm old with ingrained habits. For example when a Rebecca becomes a he my brain doesn't make that switch easily or quickly, but I try. If the bible is taken literally I would have been stoned ages ago. And I give the bible no place in my life today.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
It is a huge pimping of girls. Not to mention that girls are put into supporting roles and told boys sports are more important than theirs. Plus cheerleading is a huge popularity contest. I never told my girls they couldn't go out for cheerleader. They told me they didn't want to. Two were in the marching band and none of them had much good to say about the cheerleaders or their relative intelligence.

India and Bangladesh already have coastal areas that are flooded and the population has had to move inland, which is worsening the crowding in cities with all the attendant problems. There are coastal roads on the East Coast that are flooded out on a regular basis, and some pricey property that is now really water front. New Orleans will be gone, as will Florida, Charleston, Norfolk, VA, New York, Houston, and DC. Its pretty grim.

Cocoa jumped up on the foot of my bed and proceeded to try to dismember the bird. I grabbed her and kicked the bird off the bed and yelled for the parents. Stepmother got the corpse and tossed it in a covered trash can. Cocoa went looking for the bird, and then came back and scolded me for several minutes as only a Siamese can. She was my first heart cat. But oh gross, dead birds and stuff.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I have a "sewing" room. I have a sewing machine, serger, embroidery machine, many scissors, rotary cutters, yarn, fabric and craft supplies. Yes, it does need its own room. The closet is full and overflowing with fabric. I also store stuff in there, like wrapping supplies. And yes it needs some organization. Any quilter will tell you that you NEVER throw away scraps, it might just what you need to finish a project and save you a trip to the fabric store. Fabric stores are wonderful dangerous places. I go in for one item thinking 15 minutes max and come out 4 hours later with 24 or 30 new items.

Get rid of stuff that doesn't bring you peace of mind or isn't useful, or doesn't have sentimental value. I love my home, it is my nest where I can shut out the world, however sometimes I am alone too much. I try to keep busy, I have lots of projects that bring me pleasure. I quilt, and other crafts. Also try to keep your place clean, clean is better for your mental health. And then my girls are here too, my cats Zelda and Xena.

HippieChick58 comments on Jun 30, 2018:
Read up so you understand dementia. You don't mention how old your mom is. It is considered Early Onset if she is in her 50s, and that is not a good sign. Many people with Alzheimer's tend to do better early in the day, and the night time brings on the dementia, otherwise known as sundowning which sounds like may be going on with your mom. Dementia is one cruel ass disease, it robs the victim of their personality and leaves only the shell.
