    Former first lady Barbara Bush dies at age 92

    I hope it does. Too many (family and patient alike) have unrealistic "hang on forever" thoughts

    Skincare

    I generally don't wear makeup, only occasionally, less than 1x month. I wash with warm washcloth/H2O each night-no soap, put on oil of olay SPF 15 each morning. If I wear makeup, I use cold cream to remove. I'm 50 but can easily pass for late 30s, early 40s. I try to maintain good diet and adequate hydration (with both, sometimes easier said than done). Rest is an issue, as perimenopausal issues work their magic in the middle of the night, think-night sweats, hot flashes, and insomnia. To me, sunscreen and diet/hydration are key. No special lotions or potions.

    In order to make a total change!

    A very wise friend of mine once told me that if you don't know what to do about a situation, don't do anything for 72 hours, not even think about it. Things often work themselves out or show themselves in a true light to help with a decision. I've used that advice many times, and have never had it steer me wrong. Good luck with your problem

    List of Faves!(and other stuff)

    He hasn't been very public as of late, but yes, still very nice to look at last I saw. I'm just picky about my celeb crushes. Brad Pitt, pssshhh, Johnny Depp, umm is ok, not the best. And these young kids would need to be taught, no thanks

    Panama Papers Q&A: What is the scandal about?

    My own personal thoughts on this: not a big shock. And I bet that most of those to be named are no big shock. It's sad that the wealthy feel that they have to hide things. Why not pay your fair share? I know I'm being naive, but I feel that these folks should have to pay no matter where they are, who they are. The governments, and the people that they supposedly represent, deserve no less

    Saturday April 2 2016

    For some us of us, it's just another work day (sigh...). But, my employer has accidentally canceled my health insurance and say they don't know how to fix it. I got the email this morning and just about exploded. What a way to start the day. It's beautiful here, and if I didn't have to work, I'd go ride the motorcycle all day

    I Was Robbed!

    I've had identity theft via my debit card in the last year and I have had 4 new cards due to that only. The theft origination: locally, then sold via online black market. Unfortunately, you're not safe anywhere as I've found out, as local businesses transmit your purchases "over the air" so to speak, to their payment processors. The only 100% safe method of payment is cash. But that's not logical either as you could get your cash stolen, and it's just plain inconvenient. Thieves are thieves and will get what they want if they want it bad enough. I'm lucky in that my bank has always caught with the first transaction (I'm major creature of habit), but the hassle of no card is frustrating! I feel your pain

    Soon to be step parent to a 20yo SD and 19yo SD

    You need to have a sit down with Dad first. If he isn't going to stand with you on the reasonable things, believe me, it will never work. I know, I'm there, and the kiddos don't even live with him. (In fact, saving $$ to get out now, at least I haven't married him and have to figure out divorce issues as well.) Make a list to discuss with him first and ask for his thoughts. Be direct and reasonable. They can clean up after themselves, and show respect. But if he isn't going to stand beside you, bail now before you end up miserable. Stand your ground, because if you give in, none of them, Dad included, will ever respect you.

    Terrorism in Belgium

    1000% agree with posts so far. Again, there is no right or wrong, at this time as I see it. It just makes me afraid for the future :shy:

    Terrorism in Belgium

    I can't believe it. The one day that I didn't turn on the TV, something like this happens. I'm just shocked to have not seen anything about it out here yet! I'm struck by the stances taken by the 2 presumed presidential candidates. Donald Trump bombastically hollering that we need to blah blah blah; Hillary stating that we should basically do nothing. I think the real answer lies somewhere in between. I only ask myself, is it going to end soon? Thoughts?

    Obama in Cuba

    This is off topic, but I want to add. My father (gone 8 years now) visited Cuba as a young boy, and his parents had visited many times while alive, before communism came in and took over. I've seen multiple black and white pictures of a beautiful paradise. It makes me wish for a simpler time with simpler things....(sigh). And on the occasional documentary, you see some slum areas, but prosperous areas as well, just like here in the states (parts of NYC, LA and Detroit, anyone?). My issue with his visit is that he couldn't make time to attend funerals of certain recently decease persons of importance in the US, but can run down for a working vacation in Cuba. Strikes me as so odd

    Marco Rubio drops out of Presidential Campaign

    100% agree. I think he tried to use Trump-ism and brash humor like the Don, but people saw it to not be his true personality and were totally turned off. Now trying to live with my new decision to vote Cruz. Again, I like Kasich, but really no chance there, so I'm going to make my vote count. And my vote won't go to Donald Trump
