It's no secret by now. I'm Retired, a Bi-Sexual, a Nudist and I'm a Widower. After my Wife of 42 years lost her battle with cancer, I moved in with my daughter.

I'm also an Alcoholic, but I don't drink anymore. My Wife kept me sober over 35 years and after she left, I dove, head first, back into that bottle of Bourbon. I stayed there about 14 months, until my Granddaughter saw me when I was Fall-Down drunk. Even in my drunken state, I said myself that the Kids shouldn't see things like that and I haven't touched a drop since (except 2 days a year, October 5th and May 28th).

More to follow.

Study: Suicide Numbers Dropped In California After Marijuana Legalization [thefreshtoast.com]
AncientNight comments on Jul 2, 2019:
This article seems to back up common knowledge among Cannabis users. I've always observed that, when someone smokes some Cannabis, they don't think about performing any violent acts, either to themselves, or others. They would rather sit back and enjoy the high and listen to some good music. Using Cannabis to replace opioids is, also, a no brainer. I can see LIMITED use of opioids for immediate relief of intense pain from sudden injuries as you might see from an auto accident, but to continue the use of opioids is to invite disaster. The good thing about switching over to Cannabis as soon as is possible is that it's not addictive and does a good job of working on pain on it's own.

Music is the language of Human Emotion and the emotion that comes through for me in this piece is that the singer is fed up with the crap that the masses throw out there at anyone that isn't, what they see as, "normal". They should take their cue from Nature, because nature is accepting of the LGBTQ+ Community.

Maybe it won't be too long before she joins the Netflix/Marvel Family. Those are the kinds of TV shows that I like. I'm currently catching up on the DC Comics shows from the CW and past seasons are now on Netflix. I find that the characters aren't as believable in those shows as the characters in the Marvel shows are. Starting with the way they all look, the DC Hero's all seem to be like those "Beautiful People" that you see in Magazine ads and the Marvel Hero's seem to look like anyone that you might bump into on any city street. The DC Hero's all seem to have it together and the Marvel Hero's all seem to have some kind of psychological damage in their lives. Even though I find the DC Comics Shows entertaining, I have an easier time relating to the Marvel Hero's. But, that's just my opinion.

It sounds to me like you could stand some R&R (Rest and Relaxation) from your life. Go fishing. Go camping. Get into Nature and be with yourself for a while. Listen to the Sounds Of Nature. The sound of the Birds and buzzing of the bugs can be very calming (except where I am, the Cicadas are starting their noise early this year) Try meditation (something I've tried, but never seemed to do right). Try Yoga ( another thing I don't know how to do). Above all, take some time for youself. It's something that I never really got a chance to do when I was taking care of my wife in her last few years of her life.

I'll have to look into the correlation between diet and Alzheimer's. There might be something to it.

If your only symptom is dizziness, I would suggest that you make an appointment to see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat).

There's medications that can help with that. Whatever you do, don't give up hope, because without hope, we have nothing.

AncientNight comments on Jun 28, 2019:
Once again I read an article/post that says Cannabis should be, at the very least, decriminalized and at best legalized because it's not that harmful to us. The problem that we have in the States is a case of too many Right Wing State Legislatures and State Senates for the majority of States to legalize Cannabis. On the Federal level, the Democrats have control of the House of Representatives, but Mitch McConnell is still in control of the Senate. I can only see one way to solve the problems in this Country, and not just Cannabis Legalization, and that's to see to it that Democrats gain control of State Legislatures and both, the House and Senate in Congress. Either that, or move someplace where we can start our own Country and make our own Laws.

AncientNight comments on Jun 27, 2019:
I was raised by parents that lived through the Great Depression of the 1930's. However, leftovers weren't really an issue, because my parents only cooked enough food for the meal we were eating. And, if there were some left overs, they didn't last too long. One of the drawbacks of being in a large family. The only "leftovers" that we had when I was growing up was 2 Kaiser Rolls from Sunday lunches so that my Father could have a couple of sandwiches at work on Monday. On Sundays, we would have Kaiser Rolls from a local bakery with Tuna Salad, Lettuce, Tomato and, sometimes, Sliced Hard Boiled Eggs. I still think of those Sunday Lunches when I smell Tuna and Coffee.

"Unloved in Childhood: 10 Common Effects on Your Adult Self" ...
AncientNight comments on Jun 27, 2019:
Not all childhood traumatic experiences come from parental abuse. In my case, it happened to me at the hands of a stranger when I was 11 years old. This is something that I never told anyone before. I was taking a short cut through some woods when I was grabbed. The guy had a knife and told me to drop my pants. He fumbled with his pants with one hand and told me that he wanted me to put his thing in my mouth. I didn't want to get hurt, so I did it, while he reached over me to rub my butt. I remember the salty taste of him to this day. The experience from when I was 11 years old set me up to accept the sexual encounters I had when I was 15 and working on a dairy farm. After a long hard day of working in the fields, the boss would come into my bedroom, completely naked and would share his idea of a good time with me. At the time, I was 25 pounds underweight and didn't have the ability to stop what he was doing. But, that didn't really matter, because I found that I liked what he was doing to me. At 15, I didn't see it for what it was, child sexual abuse. I was just pleasantly surprised that someone wanted to have sex with me. After all, I was a Teen aged boy and we were descibed as Walking Hormones. I also had sex with the bosses niece that Summer. She was about 6 months younger than I was and I thought that she was pretty. The experiences that I had that Summer has led me to find out that I'm Bi-Sexual and I wouldn't change that for anything. Why should I? I can't be more or less than what I am. Yes, the experiences would be considered to be traumatic. But, today, I think I'm as well adjusted as I can be, which some might call a little crazy at times. If I had it all to do over, I don't think I would change a thing. For the most part, I'm happy with the way that my life turned out.

Mother of a depressed gay man with a meth and alcohol addiction. I’m so tired of being lied to.
AncientNight comments on Jun 26, 2019:
As long as the addictions persist, the lies will continue. There's a good possibility that it's the addictions that have caused the Depression. As an Alcoholic and someone that was strung out on Speed at one time, I can see what you're going through from that perspective. I lied a lot, too, back then. I would imagine that your son is in his 20's or 30's, so he shouldn't be a dependent, unless there are some physical or mental disability at play here. The best thing that can be done is to get him to realize that he has to take care of his addiction first. If he doesn't take care of it, then it's time for some "Tough Love" to be enacted. If he doesn't get the help for his addictions, tell him that you'll have nothing to do with him until he does. Believe me when I tell you that Tough Love will be tougher on you than it would be on him. Whatever you decide, do it sooner, rather than later. But, if you decide to do that, never relent. Never give in. Never help him with money, food or emotional support. That would defeat the purpose of Tough Love.

Friendship should come before Blow jobs. The next time you see your friend, talk to him about it and get as much information from him as you can. I think that there could be 2 possibilities at play here. First, he may have just been very horny and needed a good blow job. Second, he may be genuinely curious about being a Bi-Sexual. Whichever way it was, it would be best to find out before things become too awkward. Not having any friends myself, I wouldn't want to see anyone lose a friend over mis-understandings and mis-communications. Talk to your friend about it as soon as you can. Just leave out the 420 and wine, because that might be what was talking, or giving him the courage to bring it up. Either way, talk to him.

SAFER DRIVERS: The deputy administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ...
AncientNight comments on Jun 25, 2019:
There's a difference between asking someone something about driving under the influence of any substance (Cannabis and Alcohol come to mind) and actually observing the events in a Controlled Environment. When I say "Controlled Environment", I mean a place where the vehicles are prepared to prevent damage and to minimize the possibility of any kind of injuries as much as is practicable. Market research is OK for product development, but not for something like this. If you ask a drunk if he/she is OK to drive, you know they're going to say yes, without hesitation. That doesn't mean that you should let them drive. I would like to challenge the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to do some actual testing in that "Controlled Environment" to find out if what they found out in their Market Research is correct. Another thing that I would like to find out is how many traffic accidents are caused by people high on Cannabis as opposed to those caused by people on Alcohol, Nationwide. Then, I would challenge them to publish their findings from both

VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS! This just goes to show that we still have a long way to go before we are considered to be Human Beings by everyone. For the past few years, polls have shown that about 80% of Americans believe that those of us in the LGBTQ+ Community should have Equal Rights. But, I'm sorry to say, we're not the only ones being besieged with our rights in jeopardy. The Voting Rights Act, affecting People of Color and other Minority Groups is under attack as is Womens Rights with the abortion issue. VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS! We're living in some scary times. Storm Clouds are gathering on the Horizon and I don't think that the full onslaught is here yet. The war against us is being fueled by the money of many of the Mega-Wealthy who are afraid of some kind of uprising. It's my sad thoughts that their actions are going to force some kind of violent reaction to their efforts to suppress Human Rights. VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS! The top 1% shouldn't have the right to tell us how we can live our lives. All they have to do is learn how to treat everyone fairly. But, I don't think that that concept is is anywhere near their lives. And they have the temerity to use the Word of their false god to show how Holy they are. WHAT HYPOCRITES! They're driven by Greed and are afraid that what they have is going to be forcefully taken from them. They've even taken to arming the Police with military equipment so that they can feel safe. So that, when they call 911, they'll be the first to be protected by their paid Jack-Booted Thugs from the rest of us. But, who's protecting us from having our lives ripped apart by the Greed of the Mega-Wealthy? VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS!

AncientNight comments on Jun 23, 2019:
I remember "The Galloping Gourmet" on TV. In my opinion, the 2 most important senses that come into play are smell and taste. If it smells good, it, usually, tastes good. Another thing is that anyone that cooks food has to taste it as it's being prepared and cooked. That way, you can make adjustments to the dishes you're making as you go along. As far as visual goes, my dishes turn out looking like slop plopped down on a Mess Hall tray, but usually taste good. At least, that's what people tell me. What you quoted Graham Kerr as saying is the premise of every show on the Food Network. Lisa used to love watching shows like Chopped, the Next Food Network Star and the shows that featured the kids doing the cooking and baking. I stopped watching when Lisa lost her battle with cancer. I think it's time I started watching again.

I verbally told my daughter to have me cremated and for my and my wife's ashes to be put in a huge bonfire and allowed to rise into the ether. Then, all the ashes from the bonfire can be added to a compost heap to replenish the soil and benefit future gardens.
Today is the day one year ago that I lost my darling Richard. It's been a tough year to get through...
AncientNight comments on Jun 23, 2019:
You're Welcome and you're not alone. We're all suffering from the loss of a loved one. I think that you'll find that some days are easy to get through and some are terrifying experiences. With me, I might be having a good day, but then something happens that triggers memories and I fall apart. It might be a song on the radio, or I'll see a girl with long Dark Blond Hair like Lisa had when I first met her. Sometimes I'll see something interesting while I'm out and say to myself that I have to tell Lisa about that when I get home. Then it hits me that she's not there anymore and I fall apart all over again.
Road trip! Hidden Falls, Grand Teton National Park
AncientNight comments on Jun 23, 2019:
I'll be taking an extended Road Trip this Summer. I have a card that allows me to enter any National Park without paying an entrance fee, so I'll be making some stops along the way. I'll have my camera with me and I'll be posting pictures when I get home.

That looks good. And it looks like the kind of dish that can be eaten hot or cold. But, what I want to know is why so few mushrooms? The more, the merrier! LOL DID YOU KNOW? The combination of Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme was thought, in Medieval times, to induce a miscarriage when a pregnancy wasn't wanted, usually, by the father of the baby. Women weren't allowed to have a voice in anything. It seems that the voice issue is becoming true of women again in those Deep Red States! But, that topic is for another forum.
Holy virgin monster of pizza! A friend of mine posted this on FB. I've never seen a pie this big!
AncientNight comments on Jun 23, 2019:
Must be in New York City! If you want the best Pizza in the World, go to NYC. If you want the best Pizza in NYC, go to Brooklyn. For the Best Pizza in Brooklyn, go to Bay Ridge. For the best Pizza in Bay Ridge, you gotta go to a place, I think is called, Espinoza's, on 68th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues. But, I haven't been there in decades. That place might not be there anymore. I lived the first 5 years of my life on Bay Ridge Blvd., one block over and many blocks up from there. I used to go there once in a while when I was a teen. For under $2.00, you could get 2 slices with extra toppings and 2 medium soft drinks. But, that was in the 60's. I would imagine the prices have multiplied a hundredfold since then.

AncientNight comments on Jun 22, 2019:
Once again, I have to say that it will pass in the House, but it will die a slow and agonizing death in the Senate. In 2020, a lot of Republican Senate seats are up for grabs. Including, I believe, Mitch McConnell's seat. Let's spread the word that the Republicans are anathema to the American Way of Life. Start endorsing and supporting Democrats for those Senate Seats AND the Post that will be up for grabs in the White House. I can't say it enough; If you're not registered to vote, get registered. Then, get to the Polls and vote in November for the Democrats that are running. It's the only chance we have to bring about the end of Prohibition.

AncientNight comments on Jun 22, 2019:
That looks like too much electronics for an outdoor grill. But, it sounds delishous.I know that a London Broil, when cook fast, turns out like shoe leather. I'm a big fan of slow cooking many cuts of meat. And not just beef. Pulled Pork, when done properly, can take 12 hours or more in a smoker.
Cheeseburger onion rings? I'm down! [tasty.co]
AncientNight comments on Jun 22, 2019:
Right now, my mouth is watering and my Cholesterol level just went up by, at least, 50% just reading the recipe. I'm going to have to take an extra Simvastatin to bring it back down! This is something that I'm going to have to try. I'm toying with the idea of adding some BACON to it. There's nothing like a good BACON Cheeseburger!

AncientNight comments on Jun 22, 2019:
I don't know about the roasted cabbage, but the Hot Pastrami Sandwich sounds great. The best Hot Pastrami I ever had was at Katz's Deli, just outside of Central Park South. They piled the thin sliced Pastrami several inches thick. That was a several decades ago, though. I heard on TV that they were going out of business due to retirement. If that's true then it's a sad loss for New York City and all that go there for vacations.

AncientNight comments on Jun 21, 2019:
The best soup that I ever made was a Turkey with Rice Soup. It was made from some leftovers from a Thanksgiving dinner. I boiled the larger bones of the Turkey to get the flavor out of them. Then a fished out the bones, turned down to simmer and added some of the meat, chopped Celery Sticks, chopped Carrots from the dinner and then added a chopped Small Onion, and a small handful of Rice and put in Salt and Pepper to taste. I let it simmer for about an hour and a half to let all the flavors meld together.

Too hot for Hot Chocolate here. The temperatures are soaring into the 90's (above 32C), with afternoon and evening Thunderstorms just about every day. The kind of weather that contributes to relaxing on the porch and watching the Flashes of Lightning.

AncientNight comments on Jun 21, 2019:
I love spicy foods, but since I had my Gall Bladder out, I can't tolerate spicy anymore. For a long time (about 6 years or so) I couldn't even drink coffee. I used to drink 2 or 3 pots of coffee a day. I've gotten it to the point where I can now drink 2 or 3 cups a day. But, to answer your question, Tabasco Louisiana Hot Sauce was always my go to hot sauce. I had it on pulled pork a lot.

Election days can help if we all vote. And when we vote, vote for Democrats. Never, ever, ever vote for one of those Right Wingnut Republicans. It's really the only way to fix broken systems. Another thing to do is shut down those "for profit" prisons.

Bacon and Eggs with Buttermilk Pancakes and buttered toast. When I worked on a dairy farm, that was Breakfast every day. Even though I was 25 pounds (11.33Kg) underweight at the time, I could pack away a lot of food back then. It was cooked on a cast iron, wood burning stove. We had some really great meals that was cooked on that stove.

What does the USDA say about Steroids. I know that they used to give Steroids to cattle to put more meat on them. I don't know if they're still allowed to do that.
