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.

Looks like you could divide those daffodils next winter & have 3 or 4 times as many! The flowers will be bigger too. I'm glad to meet a new member as I'm pretty new to this group myself. Currently I'm growing & selling carnivorous plants--Sun Dews.

I love seeing them in the ditches, creeks & rivers. Some have red on them & remind me of little lobsters. Others have blue on them. I don't want to eat them but wonder if they'd do OK as pets. I don't like spicy foods that hurt my mouth.

How do u fight back depression? Depression attack me again? :-(
Carin comments on Mar 18, 2019:
I'm glad you are asking for help! Depression is a crippling disease & like other sicknesses, often you can't get better on your own. If none of the suggestions here seem to help or you are unable to put them into practice because you feel so terrible, there are many different kinds of professionals that can help. You may or may not want to take medicine. Either choice is OK if it feels right to you. People who tell you to get better only without medicine are ignorant on the subject. But talking to some kind of counselor is usually helpful whether or not you take medicine too. If you don't find the right person to talk to or the best medicine for you right away, don't give up. Look for a new counselor or tell the doctor you don't think a medication is helping.

Carin comments on Mar 18, 2019:
I was always taught that using a lot of profanity was a sign of a poor vocabulary & probably low intelligence. I'm seriously having trouble believing recent scientific studies saying that people who swear are actually smarter & more honest than those who don't. I still wouldn't want to be around them anyway.
It's the same thing, isn't it? ?

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!

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.....
