project brother-in-law

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 1:47am 6 Comments

We've been busy this year. Brother-in-law fell on his head in January and contracted brain damage..  So we went to the hospital (the rest of the family is dead or not interested) and kept contact with the staff, took decisions, shared information and did whatever was necessary. Then we went to his apartment and found that his cat was phobic about people, and the apartment was totally neglected, dirty and full of broken stuff. We found a cat-nanny who accepted the bizarre situation and tried…


Crash Course - measures

Posted on September 27, 2012 at 3:04pm 0 Comments

One of the things to do was to get rid of debt. Six years ago we lived in a starter flat that was almost paid off - and a hallucinating mad neighbour terrorized us into moving and buying this wonderful apartment. I'm happy here, but I realize better than before that we've got a rather big debt that cannot be paid off in a few years. O well, it cannot be helped.

Shopping is more expensive now, as I'm trying to build up a food stock. But it's also a training; we expect necessary things…


Crash Course

Posted on September 12, 2012 at 6:30am 4 Comments


I have never been a big consumer - my bank account wouldn't hear of it - and so I favoured a simple lifestyle, buying only what I needed and trying to find no-nonsense durable goods that could serve me a long time. I worked at our rather fragile household budget, wondered what to do if serious trouble arrived - our luck still holds - but also wondered about the destruction of nature, the depletion of oil etc. and what would happen to this planet and its inhabitants before the sun…

Thank you for the kind offer, and friendship.  I will gladly accept friendship, but my rejection of cell phones is only partly financial.  I really detest the things! 

The arrogance of people who use them in public places, and thoughtlessly disturb everyone around them with meaningless chatter, are a symptom of a sick (as in "terminally ill") society.  When I was working in an electronics store 20+ years ago, I swore an oath on my cats that I would never own one of the pesky things.  I did consider getting a very inexpensive "emergency" phone while I was commuting to work, but now that I can no longer drive a car, or own one, I don't need a phone to call the Auto Club.

Our land line may go out once a year, and I can live with that.  and,if I stop breathing, I DO NOT WANT to be revived, anyway.  I'm wearing a MedicAlert bracelet that advises EMTs NOT to resuscitate me EVER.

That may sound stupid, but I have heard too many stories of people who have had CPR performed on them, and "come back to life" permanently brain damaged.  NOT moi!

But many thanks for the offer; that was a kind and very thoughtful thing to do.  You just didn't know about my peculiar weirdness regarding cell phones.  <3

Thanks for joining Hang With Friends, Chris. :D I thought I was the only one who liked tap water, hah-hah. I'd go to parties and get some instead of soda or wine.

Greetings, Chris! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

thank you so much, and I'm happy to be here. I had no idea there was a place for people like me online. Living on the bible belt can be very isolating when you're an atheist.
