I used to teach middle schoolers (and raised 4 of my own), so I know the directions they take. Both sisters are vegetarians--one a vegan, so my meal was mostly "out of the garden". I did fix a couple of burgers and sausages for Dad and myself. He's 95 and enjoyed the family gathering (so to speak). Dessert was a rhubarb "bread cake". Despite my 120 lb frame, I love to eat! Be well.

Hey Joan. Thanks for the comments on my dinner post. Sorry you don't have an appetite. I had my twin sisters and father over for a July 4th cookout, and my "cancer radiation treatment" sister couldn't eat--no appetite. So I understand. I love to cook also--maybe not gourmet, but I get by.  When I was married, we had people over all the time. They still never reciprocated. Who knows why.

So sweet.

Hey, Joan!  Regarding my piece: The Great Evangelical Recession, please repost to Facebook or wherever with my compliments! 

Glad to hear you came through the chemo okay.  Hope the next time (if there must be one) is easier!

Who would ever guess you have memory problems. Your witty comments, etc. indicate otherwise. For certain, electronics are way beyond my realm of comprehension. Hence, no cell phone (or any other gadget). "Give me the simple life".

Hey, Joan!  The muse paid me a visit yesterday, at least partly courtesy of a show on NPR.  The result was this.  Please give it a look when you have a moment.

Joan, thank you.  Beautiful image, park bench in wildflower meadow.

It's difficult to get time for rest.  It's OK though.  I listen to many people through the day who tell me how hard their jobs are, smaller staff, more expectations, longer hours, no breaks, and if someone can't handle it, they are out.  My situation is not nearly that bad.  I will be checking on retirement options, but probably cant for a few years yet.

Yesterday, I mowed the orchard.  Mini-orchard.  I stopped every 15 minutes or so to empty the grass bag, and used that to mulch trees and shrubs.  I planted some tomatoes and other plants.  Then I built another raised bed.  I was so exhausted I could barely move.  Today I'm stiff and sore.  It feels really good.  So work and "work" have different effects.  Physical, if purely voluntary, is much less draining than mental/  high pressure.

I love hearing about your experiences.  You make my day.  Thank you.

Hoping you are doing ok with chemotherapy and recovering from your surgery.  I think about you a lot!

Hi Joan. I like your take on being single, etc. I've been married (twice) for a total of 25 years. I think I've learned my lesson. But I often see life through rose colored glasses. I forget the agony of living with someone else. Fortunately, I have many friends and family to fill my social needs. Thanks for your comments.

Joan, I happened to tune into the sex discussion, and I wanted to commend you for your brilliant response.  Most of the other responses were horrifying.  I would love to tear into that convo, but I can't stomach joining the group.

One response that really got me ruffled indicated that if we allow gay marriage, people will all just get gay married and not have children. 

Conservative logic!

Dear Joan

Glad to have you as a friend :-)

Hey, Joan!  Matthew Greenberg and I wondered if you'd be interested in commenting on a piece of his.  We both think it's relevant to you.

In any case, all the best!

Hi Joan. 

Good to get in touch with you. You're free to discuss anything with me about my situation if you like. 

Hope to see talk with you soon!

Hi Joan,

Glad they found only a small speck and are dealing with it well!

As for me I'm back home - largely at my insistence, not wanting to stay in hospital a moment more than necessary.  so good to be home.  Hard to get up, hurts to move or breath but it's ok - have attentive care and cheerful companionship .

Joan so sorry that you too are dealing with cancer. Wishing you all the best, treatment an recovery and family around you

And so long as we're on the subject of The Newsroom and what it does, how about some prologue ... and what came after it!
