I am a well educated transgender woman, a lesbian, and an eclectic Pagan. I am loving, giving, and sometimes kinky. I am a caretaker type, who often fails miserably at self care. I have fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, and major depression, and antidepressants make me suicidal.

I am a widow. The day that my wife died, the doctor came to me asking for my permission to stop all life-saving measures. I said the words "call it" to the doctor, thus finalizing her death.

I am complex, complicated, and worth the effort.

In case you have no use for OneDrive.
In Windows 10, OneDrive is built in. The connections are so tight, in fact, that OneDrive has its own node in File Explorer, with no obvious way to remove it. But the options to disconnect OneDrive are there if you know where to look. Here are full instructions.

quote: It’s dangerous because Trump is now strongly suggesting that people take election-law matters into their own hands by calling for a red-shirted army of vigilante poll watchers to fall into formation. There is a clear history of racist bullying that comes with this kind of desperado poll-monitoring, and here’s what that’s already starting to look like:
Donald Trump is playing on well-worn Republican suspicions that data just don’t bear out. His suggestions are racist and dangerous, say experts.

Quote: "Aside from ignoring the impact on students, the ruling also failed to mention that it was actually educators, including the National Association of Secondary School Principals, who asked the administration to issue its recent guidance on how to best accommodate transgender students."

"Despite its name, God Mode doesn’t let you do anything crazy, but is basically a shortcut. It’s great for IT workers who want common functions all in one place, or anyone who just wants a simple list of everything you can change in Windows."
Windows is extremely customizable and power users tweak everything, but some of its most common settings are found in the Control Panel. If you've read our guide to the Control Panel, you know how many useful configuration options it holds, but the menus can prove difficult to navigate. https://twitter.com/LekanAdio/status/653601472731607040 Enter God Mode, a system shortcut…

Did Microsoft's Windows 10 update break your webcam?
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update has reportedly broken millions of webcams. If your webcam has been affected, there’s a workaround to get it back if you don’t mind tweaking your registry a bit.

Introduction
I am a well educated transsexual woman, a lesbian who is gynoromantic but pansexual, and an eclectic Pagan. I am loving, giving, and sometimes kinky. I am a caretaker type, who often fails miserably at self care. I have fibromyalgia and major depression, and antidepressants make me suicidal.

I am complex, complicated, and worth the effort.

Some Favorite Quotes:

People may hate you for being different and not living by society's standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same - Anonymous

Live a good life. If there are Gods and They are just, then They will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. - Marcus Aurelius

When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time. - Maya Angelou

Yes you have the right to say (almost) anything you want, per the First Amendment. The amendment does not, however, protect you from the private, non-governmental, consequences of your utterance, nor should it. - Janet Logan

Freedom begins when you tell Mrs. Grundy to go fly a kite. - Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough For Love

Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything—you cannot conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him. - Robert Heinlein, If This Goes On

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. - Frank Herbert, Dune

You will get exactly those rights you demand, and nothing more. - Janet Logan

"The more you love, the more you can love—and the more intensely you love. Nor is there any limit on how many you can love. If a person had time enough, he could love all of that majority who are decent and just." Robert Heinlein, as Lazarus Long in Time Enough For Love

"A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity." Robert Heinlein, as Lazarus Long in Time Enough For Love

"Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" - Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

"The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly." - Richard Bach, Illusions : The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah 

"Here is a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: If you're alive, it isn't." - Richard Bach, Illusions : The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah 

"Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself." - Richard Bach, Illusions : The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah 

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former" - Einstein

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain." 
- Frank Herbert - Dune

“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, and make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.” - Elizabeth Gilbert - Eat, Pray, Love

The food is very good, but the service was atrocious. We went in as a family group of seven, and it took 20 minutes between being served drinks, and seeing another waiter to order appetizers. It was not terribly busy in the restaurant. At most there were four other tables occupied while we were there.
