Just a thought here..
because *thoughtful* folks post here -

In posting this... being utterly careful to preserve EVERY confidence,

but, it's an eye opener AND interesting to note at times
how others live and;
problems
they have to deal with, which suddenly enter their lives,*uninvited*
quite unknown to others here.

I happen to know of someone who posts on Offbeat..
.. one you'd never dream of ..

but someone we all know..... going through a
particularly rough time at the moment..

Remember this person in your prayers just now.

Thanks:

Should be a good game.
They are the biggest rivals in football.

Thank you Lady El for the delicious pancakes, I will help Quinn in the kitchen for the clean up and then we can have wonderful conversations in the sitting room.:)

Jump right in Darlin. You are among friends. What would you like to talk about. You know I have my pet subjects but what interest you? Tell us all your hubby's bad habits :) That would be fun :)

Thankfully yes, DVDs and most stuff on television all have captioning. And I think there's some technology built into televisions themselves over the last decade or so. You can decide whether to turn it on or off in your home but at least it's an option.

Some movies in the big screen are released with captioning and that was how/when some theaters in the AMC chain offered it. It is called 'rear view captioning" so I had what is similar to the rear view mirror in your car in a bendable rod (think desk lamp). The object sat in the cup holder and reflected off something in the back if the theater.

You & Mrs Denny are watching the movie as you always do and I get to watch it with captions unbeknownst to you.

I have to do more research because the closest theater to us stopped showing the captioned movies.

Hi Lady Eleanor...
Siberian Weather... NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Get out the big fans and send that back where it came from... I am less one recliner now.. My neighbor needed one and so I hauled it out and helped him put it in his trunk.. that's boot to you...hahahaha
;o)
The hide-a-bed is still here but as soon as I can find someone to give it to that sucker is gone.... I can't wait to get my new set.. It's really pretty and it will really add a touch of brightness to the Living room... The colors are a dead match for the rest of the colors in the room...
HILLBILLY WEATHER REPORT!!!
Right now it's really warm.. it's 11:57PM here and it's still 66 degrees out... Most of the rain has moved through and the clouds are rolling by at a pretty good clip...
It's had to believe it's not a night in April.... instead of the second week of January...
I hope that your night was peaceful... Here's hoping that Your day will be a good one and that it will be full of laughter and love...
Sending you and yours all of my best and warmest wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
5900... bet ya a warm dry pair of fuzzy socks...
:o)
Dear Rose...I would be so happy if we had temps of 66 at midnight
in the SUMMER...hardly seems fair! Really cold here and just waiting
for the snow, I want to wake up tomorrow morning to a Winter Wonderland.
Then for it to all go away again overnight. lol
Wonderful gesture on your part to gift your recliner to somebody who
needed it more. You won't miss it too much when you get this brand newbie in your living room...it's going to look fit for a Queen, I just
know it.
Hope this finds you keeping well, and the pups too.
Keep warm, dry...and have a brilliant weekend..
Love-n-HUGS..

Neat. I didn't know that. I hope you are having a great Sunday, Any plans for the day? I do enjoy our conversations and love to disagree with you :) Have you always lived in Illinois ? I can't believe how much different areas have different ideas. We are so very conservative in Texas. Everywhere but Austin and that is where we keep our liberals :)

Good Morning everyone..
Firstly,
BRIGHT EYES,
Thanks for YOUR post of recent days, and yes
I'll gladly give you a 'go' of my new pillow(:
I happened across a TV Documentary
about the 'Hotel Merriott' that was caught up
in the '9/11' disaster..
and a more interesting, moving, and fascinating
piece of TV I hadn't seen in a while,
the twists and turn of fate, coincidences etc..
if you folks ever get a chance to see it,
DO..(maybe some have seen it)
Coincidences like one man, a writer, who checked in
with his Dad, in order to give himself time
to concentrate on a book he was to begin writing
about 'A Terrorist attack on America"!!!!!!
Another, a lawyer who was all caught up in his high
powered job, stayed in his room to the last minute
because .. altho' he knew something odd was going on
outside, by the faces of people looking upwards!! stuff he couldn't see from 'HIS' angle..
he stayed 'til the last minute, never dreaming the enormity of what was actually happening..until
eventually the hotel was split in two by the second
tower falling, the lawyer through sheer luck
was stranded alone on a staircase, one of the few bits left standing, and the reason for that was
that stairwell was reinforced after the previous early
90's attack! he waited there alone and cried wondering would he
ever live to see his daughter soon to be married..
after ages he met a fireman, who led him out,
tho' they both had NO idea where they were going,
as they met challenge after challenge..
He DID live to see his daughter's wedding,
he invited the fireman to be guest of honor
at that wedding... it changed his whole life
[he said] from being a hard nosed lawyer to
a 'real person'
The guy who went to write the book also survived
and has instead, helped folks with personal stories..
by writing them.
An Irishman who stayed with and helped a dying woman
out of the TWIN TOWERS, she'd been splattered by
hot fuel, he got her out and she went by ambulance,
but unfortunately died days later..
When he went back to Ireland, he felt elated
UNTIL he heard the news that his sister and little
niece were on the second plane
[en route] to Disneyland!!
Sorry for going on but it was truly the most
gripping documentary I've seen in a while.
It is called simply
"The 9/11 Hote"
I watched Parts 1, 2 and 3 this morning Grace, upon seeing your
suggestion...very cleverly done and beautifully narrated, very
moving indeed. I thought most brave of the survivors to allow
us in to their remembrances too...glad you took the time to
let us know about it.
I will catch up with the remainder of it as time permits.

Can't remember who gave it to who...it was in my book of Alternative Cures and there were many who claimed it worked for children who were
coughing through the night, it eased that considerably. The socks
are just to protect the sheets!

What a damn shame. That is terrible. Next time I go to the theater I am going to ask them about that. I hate to see you deprived of that
