About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

He'll say "so sue me!"

And then he'll run off to hide behind Putin's skirts. He already broached the subject about leaving town if he didn't win. My bet's still on Crimea.

Yep. The only freebies were public service announcements.

Political campaign ads? You had to pay to get those on the air.

Wait... what? Did I miss something?

What'd he do this time? Announce he's terminal?

Aw, Archae, so sorry to hear this.

Every time I'm convinced 2020 couldn't get any worse, I read or hear about hurt like this.

I'm so sorry. Having been through this with both sets of parents (mine and in-laws), it's just miserable. Even when you know it's coming and with all the logical justifications about the loved one having lived a good long life, or surrounded by other loved ones, or who made a difference, or struggled with great pain and agony - or loneliness, any/all of which, mercifully, is soon to end, even when you know it's coming, that doesn't make it one bit easier.

I remember when my mom died. She was the last of the four of them. And I remember this fleeting thought that - well, at least THAT thing I was always dreading is now over. But THAT didn't make it any easier. Nor did the thought that she wasn't in pain and increasing weakness and disability anymore. You could almost see her slipping away. And that STILL doesn't make it any easier. I guess maybe it's not supposed to be.

Just know that you did a good thing for yourself by sharing this here. Lordy, it sure helped me! I'm still grateful, and she died in late 2006. Just know that there are so many kind and gentle-hearted people here who will keep a virtual vigil with you. And many of us know and grok EXACTLY how you're feeling. I found it phenomenally touching and comforting. It meant more than I could ever hope to describe. One of many reasons why I cherish this place. It really helped me get through a very - uh - tumultuous time - just when, and how, I needed. Looks like the same thing is protectively surrounding you now.

You do not face this alone.

Welcome to DU, Dysfunction City!

SHEESH - I'll never think of Zoom in the same way again!

Jeffrey Toobin's faux pas.

Or would that be "faux paw"?


Well that sucks.

Fortunately, lymphoma IS survivable.

GREAT news, Akacia!

Thanks for letting us know!

Two MORE votes for Biden/Harris, 'eh?
