The divorce was finalized just this month, I think!

I like this idea. It's too late for me, but I hope they can get a product to market.

But Canada and Hong Kong were both in the Commonwealth so that made it easier to emigrate.

Wow. Watching a new episode of Intervention. The addict is a 33 year old woman who lost 3 out of her 4 kids (12, 8, and 5) in an apartment fire 2.5 years ago. Got hooked on pain pills after she was burned trying to rescue her kids, progressed to crack.

If ever there was a reason to want to numb your brain...

I'm not going to Vancouver, actually. Guy who told me couldn't find his @zz with a map. I'll be in a place called Winnipeg.

I remember one episode of Flashpoint, I think it was, a woman was in prison for something related to being on drugs and neglecting her children (she was addicted to pain pills from a horrible car accident that severely injured her and killed her cop husband), and she didn't know they'd taken her daughters away and adopted them to two separate families (they basically lied to her and snuck it past her).

She kidnapped both kids and while they had to arrest her once they caught her, the cops involved were pretty torn up about it, since they didn't think it was right that her kids would be taken away forever in that situation. It was a real tear jerker.

All the sudden it got really windy, the temperature dropped and dark clouds are coming. Think we are receiving that storm Red lived through last night.

That's really sad. That's a person who deserves whatever help people can give her.

My DVR cut off the very end, but it looked like she was on the right track. Six months sober as of the airing. Her entire family got help, too, then moved to a farm in another state and she joined them after rehab. I'm thinking a new view every morning would really help out a lot.

Good for her. I'd be more than a complete mess.

Thanks to something I said once, my friend got life insurance on her kid (which normally isn't a wise thing to do), enough to pay her mortgage and utilities for a year. She figures, in case she doesn't cope well and becomes a drunk sitting in the dark for a year, at least she'll have a roof over her head and a freezer for her vodka if she can't work.

Thank FSM one of her kids lived, to give her something to live for and fight her way back to being whole again. if she'd lost them all, she may have just ended it all afterwards.
