I've recently moved in with a really great guy that I met here, but I still enjoy talking with all kinds of people. & somehow I became a host of a sewing group here even though my sewing skills are very rudimentary & undisciplined.

I like plants, animals, chocolate, science & humor.

Carin comments on Mar 17, 2019:
I don't text, but I like emojis. For some reason can't stand "lol"--maybe because it's usually fake. Like how often are you actually laughing out loud when you type that? Usually it's not nearly THAT funny.

You have my total support. I made this decision decades ago & never regretted it, even when my parents died. I only felt relief. So here's me wishing you good luck, although I don't think you need it because you have taken CONTROL of this situation with confident decisiveness.
Hold each other up Stolen from FB
Carin comments on Mar 16, 2019:
Perfect! I love to see a stranger's face light up when I tell her I love her colors, or her sweater looks so comfy & pretty. Someone doesn't need to be dressed up for us to notice something special. & no reason we can't compliment a guy on his shoes or shirt or something either. But the day I casually complimented a store clerk on his masculine choice of nail polish color, I realized I was officially a naturalized Californian.

Carin comments on Mar 16, 2019:
One of my areas of expertise is human lactation. Shorter duration of breastfeeding, only possible in agricultural societies where non-human milk & softer foods were available for infants, would have quickly changed oral development in similar ways. Studies have shown that failure to breastfeed results in higher rates of speech problems, while another study showed that breastfeeding till age 3 (which would have been at the low end of breastfeeding duration in pre-agricultural times) reduces the need for future orthodontia by over 70%! I've seen no information on breastfeeding & wisdom teeth problems, but the data is clearly showing that active breastfeeding rather than passive bottle feeding, which requires no jaw movement, promotes more normal oral development. Thanks for sharing this article!

It made me wonder why tropical trees have buttress roots & roots coming down from branches...stability in thin tropical soils? Trying to absorb more nutrients?

I tend to agree with you. Let the kids in if they are young enough to be salvageable. We have a similar case in the US right now. Her father is pleading for her to be allowed back in. I would almost say, make an example of her.

Most know this as PI day it just also so happens to Albert Einstein birthday.
Carin comments on Mar 14, 2019:
My silly Pi Day story: Somehow I made it to my forties never having heard of Pi Day (I'm totally math phobic) until my daughter said tomorrow was Pie Day at school, & they were supposed to bring pies to cut up & share. As a hopeless wanna-be supermom type, I set to making a home made pie that would be bigger than any of the other kids' pies. My lasagna pan was the biggest baking dish I had....& my poor daughter brought a rectangular (though huge, delicious, & made entirely from scratch) apple pie to school to celebrate "Pie" day.....

Carin comments on Mar 12, 2019:
No need to starve--just poke a tiny hole in the lid to get rid of the vacuum holding it on. You can put a little tape over the hole if you aren't going to use it all up. I find that my pride is well worth a bit of tape. Did anyone mention whacking the bottom of the jar with the heel of your hand as hard as you can? That will often jolt things loose.

Carin comments on Mar 6, 2019:
Only if you plan to die at 50... Seriously, 30 might be the worst--you still feel young so it's harder to accept those big numbers. As you get older it's less of a big deal. Though I'll be 60 in 3 years, ugh--that feels like practically dead! Where do the years go once you get older? Childhood seemed to last FOREVER, time seemed barely to move. I can't remember now when it sped up--after 20 for sure... How fast do years seem to be going by for you?

Climate Change
Carin comments on Mar 4, 2019:
Even catastrophic storms & disasters haven't jolted us out of our apathy. 2 summers ago the California drought brought the worst wildfire season ever--5,000 buildings burned & over 40 people died in the CA county where I lived.... & I'm really not doing anything differently now... I've always recycled & avoided wasting electricity & all that, but there were still a lot of things more that I could have done, like get rid of my minivan & get a Smart Car or something, stop taking 30 minute hot showers, & let the house be cooler in winter--but I didn't do any of those things & I still haven't. What's wrong with me? Why am I apathetic just like most everyone else?

Seems like most of the people with folding carts are women, & a lot of women don't care much about cars as long as they do their job.
