Thank you Pywacket. It's not often you see a post ring with so much "heart."

Do you know anyone with an unusual name?

"Halloween Riddle" born October 31, 1930'ish I don't know if the Riddle part was married or maiden. Went to school with an April Snowflake.Ancient female cousins named Clyde & Francis; a friend had young cousins named Perrin & Rebel. My sister's middle name is Wren because we had a cousin named Robin and my mother "wanted a bird too." And my grandfather was named Olive. "Unique" names are not a new phenomena.

Coach's plea to end chant ignored

Wow, today's little sheep insist on keeping their cheer, even when told by the "man" to give it up. Sniff, brings a tear to my eye. Maybe there is hope for this generation. Now if we could just get them out of those UGG boots....

Uninsured Kansans on the rise

My mother paid for a private insurance policy for herself and then later for her & us kids (dad was a farmer) from the 1950's until the early '80's. At that point it became unaffordable and her health declined. Nagging little chronic illnesses, untreated, became life threatening debilitating illnesses as she aged... Her weight went up, her knees got worse, her diabetes & hypertension, untreated, damaged her heart & nervous system. By the time she was officially considered "disabled" it was too late. She looked a lot like the woman in the picture - the one some of you so smugly like to condemn for "life style choices." If I ever forget that there are people out there who just don't "get" what really goes on in this world I know all I have to do is pull up just about any story the LJ World prints and read the comments.

Dying to Lose Weight - What Have You Got To Lose?

After watching several people in my family die of obesity related illnesses all I've got to say is, if your insurance will cover the cost, DO IT! Do what ever it takes to get the weight off and keep it off. Yes, diet and excercise will work for some (not most), and there are some drug therapies out there, and inpatient options, but the important thing is to not give up. If one thing doesn't work, try the next! Just keep fighting.
