Carin comments on Oct 29, 2018:
I'm so sorry to hear about your step mother's death, & that you have feelings of guilt on top of all the grief. You sincerely tried to do the right thing & it sounds like nobody else in the family told you she was dying, so give yourself a little break, OK? It sounds like this is a difficult time in your life altogether & you're trying to do your best. If you aren't getting counseling already, maybe you would like to try it? It helps to have someone you can tell everything & can help you see your situation more clearly so you can find the way out.

How to reply when someone says 'have a blessed day'
Carin comments on Oct 28, 2018:
At least where I live (CA) blessings often have no religious connotation at all. I guess we are assuming that humans can bless each other. It just expresses your wish for them to be happy & well.

Carin comments on Oct 27, 2018:
If you're staying friends in hopes of opening their minds you're almost certainly wasting your time. If still want to hang out with them, the old time advice to never discuss religion or politics is what you need. You'd need to communicate that to them though. Maybe if they bring it up say you love their company but talking politics is hurting our relationship. How are your grandkids doing by the way?

Go to some animal shelters & adopt a friendly, very cute or cool looking dog. One that will really be noticed. Other kinds of animals are good too--anything that can be carried around or walked on a leash. Sometimes I took our spotted pet rat out. She crawled around on my shoulders & people loved her. Rats & such are good if you're gone at work a long time.
Pretty sure the cafeteria at work hates me.

The fish is not participating voluntarily--an adult is pushing its head out of the water & making it gasp. It is not kissing the kid. I don't think the poor carp will survive long with this kind or treatment. I've had fish for 38 years & if you care about your fish you don't handle they unless it's necessary. It damages their protective slime coating & stresses them.

What have you been sewing this week?
Carin comments on Oct 26, 2018:
I've not been sewing at all but instead helping others to sew. I mentioned before that I sew washable sanitary pads for girls & women in Africa. Now some groups there are wanting to sew their own--something I'm so excited to support. Not only will there be more pads for more people since I'm not the only one making them, but also the ladies are learning a skill that, I hope, they can use to make & sew pads to earn their own money. My part in this is to cut all the fabric pieces & send them over, along with sewing supplies & illustrated instructions. Here's a picture of recently mailed boxes of pad making supplies as well as some pads I sewed, underwear so they can use them, & some dolls & stuffed animals that I sewed for a new preschool in Malawi. I wish it wasn't sideways.

Why is the label African Americans used to describe black Americans
Carin comments on Oct 26, 2018:
Doesn't it seem kind of strange, if not ridiculous & arrogant, to be a bunch of white people discussing what African Americans should or should not be called & speculating about their reasons for wanting to choose how they are referred to? We have zero first hand experience & never will. Many of us who are posting have no back ground information or particular knowledge of the topic yet feel our opinions are significant. This is my last post on the subject. Meanwhile I see very few of our African American members bothering to join this discussion....& I think I can see why.

Carin comments on Oct 24, 2018:
I've taken college art history classes & the correct answer is neither of those. In the early days pigments & such were expensive & the artists had to make their own paints. Artists generally could not afford supplies along with feeding their families, so they had patrons if they were good enough to attract them. They also were commissioned for projects. And the churches had money. Even paintings that don't appear religious to our eyes often carried religious messages in symbols recognized by the people of the time, since few could read. Patrons liked to show off their wealth by having the artist use large areas of very expensive to make colors--something people of the time would alaso recognize. I'm not sure any more, but I think one of them was a certain blue.
