• Returning after long absence from this site, needing to re-establish myself in the community here and with the friends I used to have here.  Looking forward to shutting up my head weasels and exposing all the stuff I've been keeping to myself since I stopped writing.  It'll be a relief to purge.

    I am trying to learn French from a wonderful instructor, his project can be found here:
    Check it out and if you don't want to learn French, it's good reading anyway.  He has an awesome way of keeping my attention with humor and interesting facts.
    Please give him some feedback (which I'm sure will be excellent, you'll see!)
    and join in on the fun.  It's an interactive learning process that even me, at my old age can actually enjoy while learning. 
    Breagadoir est un fantastique instructeur de la langue française!  (Okay I used the google translator for that sentence, pardon!)
    Parlez-vous français?   Oui, très peu.
    (Do you speak French?  Yes, very little)

    A good quote on a different note:
    "Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and has fears about persons and things; the psychotic has convictions and makes claims about them. In short, the neurotic has problems, the psychotic has solutions."
    Thomas Szasz (1920 - ____) US psychiatrist, educator
    The Second Sin, "Mental Illness" (1973).

  • Can't say I have any one or two favorites.  I love to read, since I knew what a book was, always walked around with my nose in a good mystery or suspense novel.

  • Anywhere that is really quiet and where no one is going to bother me or interrupt my reading.  In bed is actually my favorite, even more so I love to read while enjoying a secluded niche in a forest or on a beach.

  • Rita Mae Brown:

        "The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you."
