Yeah, military families are used to being more disciplined. When I was an Army wife, if I did something wrong, my then husband's commander would be notified and that is not a good thing. Family members can be kicked off base, and if they are overseas the family member can be sent back to the US.

When you let skin tone, gender, and all those other meaningless divisions come between you and your fellow humans evil is given a place to fester. We are all humans inhabiting a very small planet, and if we don't get out shit together very soon the planet will do fine without us.

His parents were just finishing the bedroom when Covid hit, and bedroom is now mom's office as she works from home, dad is working in the office in the basement. The quilt top is now folded up in my sewing room waiting for a good time to take it to the shop for mom to choose the backing and quilting pattern. We're all hoping Austin doesn't figure out he can climb out of his crib any time soon. This was kinda made up on the fly, Sarah gave me a picture of the rug to go in the room, and she wanted it of a similar theme and nothing girly. Sarah chose the fabrics as well. It has to last until he goes off to his own home.

HippieChick58 replies on May 7, 2020:
So, if I understand you, your blood pressure medication should be out of pocket, not matter what it costs? The cost should not be covered by your employer sponsored health insurance? Which also means if you ever want Viagra or any of that genre of medication it would be out of pocket. Insurance companies do make profits, obscene profits. Most insurance company CEOs are making high six figure if not 7 figure incomes. I don't ever want my employer making health care decisions for me. If I need oral contraceptives to fight acne or uterine fibroids, I don't want to have to discuss that with HR. I want my health insurance to cover my prescriptions. Have you priced any of these drugs? I talked to a mom who had BCBS, they gave her hell about paying for CHEMO for her child. She had a $50,000+ bill. Why did I talk to this mom, I work in the billing office of a hospital. Insurance companies are totally SHIT.

HippieChick58 replies on May 6, 2020:
@lerlo My experience and my method is to look at the profile of the suspected scammer. How is their english, if they claim to be from the US and grammar/spelling/word choice is bad, that tells me possible NNES (non native English speaker), likely not well educated, which would be suspicious coming from someone who claims to have any advanced education.We look at what they claim to believe, if they are xians and this is an agnostic/atheist site they may be lost. Where are they from? Los Angeles, DC is a good trick. Abie, NE is one of my clues. Seriously no one lives there, and no apartments. I had a scammer claim to live there in an apartment. It is a really small farming community about 45 minutes from Omaha, but also alphabetically the first city in Nebraska, lazy scammers. We look at the pictures, and reverse image search. If they pop from a porn site.... If they are willing to relocate world wide... signs of a scammer. I've had too many interactions with men who would engage in conversation and then they need money and I'm the only one they can rely on.... sob. I knew a woman who spent over $10,000 on a scammer. In fact, I've heard that story from men and women. This is a free site, of course we will get people who want to take advantage of our collective naivete. I also look at who is contacting me. A drop dead gorgeous man is likely to raise my suspicions. And that man from a long way away has not read my profile. As I said, we take a look and alert admin. We don't have the ability to kick anyone off.

@Opinionated1 Hi! I'm affectionately known by my kids as "the Dinosaur." I don't do Ag.com on my phone, just on my laptop. As my phone is always with me, having too many distractions on it would be way too much temptation, especially at work. Just 3 months ago they finally "allowed" us to have our phones out during the work day. Well, we do work with HIPAA, but.... But the bottom line here is I have no idea what Ag.com looks like on a phone or how to use it on a phone. There is a forum to ask questions like that, or check the tutorials. There are tech savvy people on this site who can answer questions like that, I am not one of them.

Everyone that’s healthy fears death unless they don’t know what death is, but judging from the way their eyes bulge and how much of a fight they give every living thing seems to understand that it’s not a good thing. πŸ’‹

I don't fear death so much as I fear the pain and suffering prior to death. If I knew I was going to go in my sleep at a convenient time I'd have no issues at all. I DON'T want to end up in a hospital hooked up to machines not getting enough pain killers.

HippieChick58 replies on Apr 27, 2020:
@Cutiebeauty Seitan is wheat gluten. "Wheat meat" has been around for centuries, although the name "seitan" (pronounced SAY-tan) is a much more recent development. Although it is made from wheat, seitan has little in common with flour or bread. Seitan becomes surprisingly similar to the look and texture of meat when it's cooked, making it a popular meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans. It is also called gluten, wheat protein, or wheat gluten. https://simpleveganblog.com/seitan/ I've made it a few times, it is very versatile. I was trying to use up the wheat gluten I found in my pantry. I'm not real sure when or why I bought wheat gluten....

@Joanne YES, there are urns for your remains that have a tree seed installed in them. I told my kids I'd be happy with that. Whatever it is, I want it simple, and green. I don't need a slab of granite or marble in a cemetery somewhere. I won't be there and it is a horrendous waste of space. My mom's remains are about 150 miles west of where I live now. I haven't visited her grave in years, and I'm sure after I and my siblings are gone no one ever will again.

@demifeministgal Not a silly question. There are resources online to help you make the determination. I've recognized that I've been dealing with depression most of my adult life, and I have a pretty good idea how well I'm doing. I've read tons of information on it. Depression is like a sliding scale , it changes frequently, and there are things you can do to change your level. This book: Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression - and the Unexpected Solutions by Johann Hari was very good, I read it last fall.

@yvilletom My mom was just a few years older than you, her parents came to the US from Germany about the 1880s, I think.

Talking is a way to cover nerves, establish dominance, and so many other uses besides transferring information.

Long drawn out stories, granted he did have a interesting career, however, he didn't care too much to hear about my life. I think the myth that women speak more than me is just that, a myth, a damn stereotype, and wrong. I think it is old thinking from the patriarchy.

Yes, NNES is a dead giveaway, a Non Native English Speaker, especially when they claim to be from the US of A. Poor grammar with a claim of advanced degrees. Or Los Angeles, NY. And Tin Eye is great for checking on photos of suspicious people, especially if they are too pretty to be true.

The closest airport is Omaha, I don't think it has international flights besides maybe Mexico. Abie is a small farm town not too far from Omaha, and Google maps shows all of it's glory. It is just a no. They only use it because alphabetically it is the first city in Nebraska. Stupid ass people, thank goodness they make it easy to avoid them.

My supervisor's daughter gave birth last Saturday. They went home on Sunday, but her granddaughters have spent the last week at her house. I think you can't be too careful with the new babies. My sister and brother in law have a son (he's 32) with CF. BIL still works daily in a steel mill. Son is living in the basement. BIL does all the shopping. He and son never see each other. They are afraid with CF the virus would be fatal for Adam. It is a really nice basement but I am sure he is bored stiff. Crazy times we live in.
