Random has always been okay here, but I know the "just slink away" feeling. I've come back and started and deleted a number of times.

Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Are you hoping Defiance will follow Nolan's adventure, or continue to be about St. Louis?

Good question! I could watch a series about Nolan and Doc Yewell traveling around the universe with a Johnny Cash soundtrack, but OTOH I do like [more]

Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Supposedly there's a back story that explains some of the mom's behavior

Re: An Open Letter

Turned out they apparently do a soft hit to ensure the money is there, but don't actually pull the money until the weekend, despite what their website said.

The hell? That draft thing is going on here, too. It looks like someone took [more]

An Open Letter

Dear granddaughter's university,

I' sitting right here with my credit card at the ready to pay tuition and your inflated, sounds-like-you're-making-it-up fees. Is it too much to ask that you A) generate a correct bill B) process yesterday's [more]

Re: issues charging adult child rent?

I like a nice, non-business relationship with my friends and family. Any time I've been guilted into charging rent etc. it's never worked out all that well. We've been pretty open-handed, spoiling, etc. and they've turned out to be productive, great [more]

Re: Retirement

I loved (and still love) retirement! I lost 20 lbs in the first year just from having a healthier life in general, more time for healthy meals, less stress eating, better sleep. I found a bunch of creative outlets I'd never had time for. Routine [more]

Re: Ethics and Red Flags

Thanks for the thoughtful response and insight. Your situation must have been so tricky. It certainly puts this in perspective.

Re: GoT News

In personal GoT news I got DS and his wife into watching. I'm now having to apologize several times a week. I keep telling them not to get attached to anyone...

They just saw the next--to-last ep of S1. They think it can't get worse than [more]

I have hopes..he does eloquent crazy so well. Maybe this will make up for him never having a guest spot on neither "Justified" nor "Sons of Anarchy."

Ethics and Red Flags

Lots of ethical debate around a weekend event that just ended...got me wondering about ethics when you suspect or just know something is poised to crash and burn.

Re: Down goes the Flag

Like the towers coming down on 9/11/01 we should not forget this flag and all the horror it has accompanied in its history. Instead, we should be made acutely aware of it in museums and in our history books so that even the youngest student will [more]

Re: curious about your opinion

Yikes.

Technically, it's a no-no to interact with a child without permission of the legal custodian unless there's an open CPS case. That open case is what gives SWs the right to talk to that kid without a parent. So just on that, there's a [more]

Re: Defiance 062615

At one point Tim Curran said the contacts were $7000 (not sure if that was all, or his, or what, and he may be just kidding). They are doing a lot more via CGI this year and it sounds like the actors are really happy about that.

As an aside, [more]

Re: Sons Of Anarchy's Torture Porn

You'd think at least the gunfire would annoy the neighbors or the child support checks stopping would get some attention.

That's probably been the safest bet, historically. At least for the public face of the church.

But doesn't every dad feel that way?

30+ years in social work tell me "not so much."
