"Have a good trip, Ian! I begin to understand you better now that we've got two adults to take care of. There are good sides but it wears you out. I'm glad Dale is doing better! I get the feeling he ate something that didn't agree with…"

"A beautiful couple, Mindy! New to me that Dale is a longhair. My friend has her longhairs shaved once a year, to help them get rid of the tangles and the old hair. That is, on top of their daily combing. But losing weight... hm."

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…

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.
