“Human beings shouldn't be sold, but they are. The cost for my brother-in-law and his wife was $30,000 or $40,000 to an adoption agency.

The mother of this child wasn't licensed, therefore she broke the law.”

“The difference being that the money went to the agency, not the birth mother.”

“An occasional PopTart isn't going to hurt anyone. Plus, they can be eaten anywhere which is a good things for folks on the go.”

“Well if someone is forcing you to eat them Betsy, call the police because that would be illegal. But unless someone died and made you king of the world then you don't have a right to tell others what they can and can not eat. That's being a food Nazi and no one likes a food Nazi, betsy. No one.”

“Dispatchers are trained professionals. The one who took Amanda's call did not act in a professional manner or follow proper procedures and therefore should be at the very least suspended for a period of time without pay. She should also receive more training before taking anymore emergency calls.

BTW: Dispatcher pay is typically listed annually in the local newspaper. They have excellent benefits and receive decent wages.”

“You're correct.  Her death was due to her drug use.  I had a cold and went to Walgreens to get something to relieve the symptoms.  I had to show my license and was questioned regarding how I intended to use the tablets and asked whether I intended to redistribute the 3 day supply of cold tablets. I don't think Anna was subjected to that when she needed any type of medications.  Fame and fortune were her enablers. ”

“Thank you for your response and the lyrics.  My loss was sudden and unexpected.  I am just grateful I was home that day and was able to lie down beside him one more time.   The last two years have been hard.  I've gone through a million Kleenex and think about him everyday.  He was 9 years older than I and retired in 98.  I am employed, but do 95% of my work here, so we were together everyday. My routine hasn't changed and I have no interest in starting over.  I intend to change it up a bit sometime down the road.  I've always wanted to work in a library.  We'll see.  Whatever it is, I'm going to continue on my own.    Best wishes to you.                 ”

“Betsy, I know just what you mean. For the five years before I was widowed I was also a caregiver. Suddenly I no longer had anyone for whom I needed to care. So you know what I did? I started caring for me. Neat trick. I did the same kind of things I had been doing but I was both the caregiver and the person receiving the care. Yes, I was horribly depressed for a long time. And when the anniversary comes, I still cry. Some of us are destined to have one true love. I had mine. You had yours. I count myself as lucky indeed to have had 23 great years together. I no longer see the great need to do it all again, especially as I'm approaching 60. (Cue the Sondheim music) Live alone and like it
Free as the birds in the trees
High above the briars

Live alone and like it
Doing whatever you please
When your heart desires
Free to hang around or
Fly at any old time

No equivocation
Most of all no guarantees
That can be your motto
Free of obligation
Only the murmuring breeze
As an obligatto
Live alone and like it
Why is that such a crime?

Free to call the tune,
Free to say if you're
Gonna work or play
You can have the moon
But you don't have to have
It night and day”

“15 means actually 5 since he has already served 10. He'll be out in plenty of time to prove that sexual predators cannot be rehabilitated. Wonder if he'll be smart enough to move to Thailand or Eastern Europe where there is more tolerance for his type of behavior and jail time can be avoided altogether with the right amount of prepayment to the officials.”
