How can we get so low that our lives and other lives don't matter to us, and we plunge into darkness...  I sit with depression a lot and I lock myself up, away from everyone and everything, because I don't trust myself in the 'darkness' that overtakes my soul...  It takes a lot of will sometimes, and dare I say courage, to turn the key and say:  No more darkness, you lighten up!!!  Get the warmth flowing and take yourself up, with whatever cross you're bearing and DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE!!!!  And I do it!  I have done it many times!!!!  The darkness overtook me three times in my life, and I said NO MORE!  I have a voice and I can shine my light, no matter how futile it seems, I CAN overcome the despair and the sorrows and the troubles and the mistakes and I CAN and HAVE...  I always look behind me to see how many mountains I've come conquered, and always realise that they are just little hills, and sometimes, just a quirk in the landscape...  Getting older doesn't make life easier.  Sometimes a smile just to one's self, imagining it being sent throughout the unknown, can make a huge difference.  So, anyone like me out there?  Keep shining and keep smiling!!!  Our HEROES also have lives to live and have their own battles to win!!!!  :-}}}}}}}}}}

Who do you know who will give or sell you water when there's a shortage?  Who would let their family suffer thirst to quench yours?  It's an "OVER THE BARREL" situation, but please, if you have some spare moola, please donate.  I gave one dollar, which is R10 here.  Not even enough to afford a loaf of bread, but it's all I can do for this time.  :-}

Thanks so much for the update!  Had a dream of being on holiday in Hawaii and it was wonderful, with no fear of large waves coming ashore and some volcanic cloud...  Have no ideas of it, except that it was a lovely outing into the nether world...  It's very cold here and have my warmest blankie...  loathe to refill coffee, but some things have to be done...  Hope you are all warm and cozy...  Warmest wishes to ye all, thanks for the G+ greetings...  Much appreciated and sending warmth back there!!!  :-}}}}

Hello and thanks for the update.  Much appreciated.  Pierre down with a fever.  It rained since last night wee hours, and I did try to get some footage of the enormous thunder claps, or rather, dull thudding, like a huger giant than I could image - but to no avail...  Still wet outside, and rain predicted again for early morning hours...  Hope this finds you all well.  Good over here.  Just emotionally tired.  Warmest wishes, raine and pierre :-}

Hellios There, S0's!!!!  Very cold here.  Not even a peep from my menopause to heat things up!!!  Hope you are all well, warm and cozy.  I started a water campaign.  Who would give or sell me water (and how?) if there wasn't any to spare?  The true horror of it all only strikes fear into the heart when it becomes personal, otherwise, it's just someone else's problem.  Anyways, I managed to donate one dollar.  Doesn't sound like much, but it's all I can spare for now.  Temp here on Friday set for 14 C and -2 C, so not looking forward to that!  Here's my PR on the water thingy.  Much appreciated.  Warmest wishes to all!  Sorry I can't do the rain dance for you:  frozen to the spot!!!!  :-}}}}

Questions that haunt me, part 3….

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a thread a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVORITE.........

The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you

---------------------------------------------

"Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian." -Dennis Wholey

----------------------------------------------

First thing - every single morning - one of the secretaries in our office opened the newspaper and read everyone's horoscope aloud.

"Gwen," said our boss finally, "you seem to be a normal, level-headed person. Do you really believe in astrology?"

"Of course not," Gwen answered. "You know how skeptical we Capricorns are."

---------------------------------------------

"Normally you'd get on the plane able to relax. Except you don't because when you have two children under the age of 5. You try to find ways to calm your kids down, but apparently, according to British Airways, those cute little kid-sized bottles of alcohol aren't actually for kids." James Corden

----------------------------------------------

Two neighbors were talking about work, when one asked, "Say, why did the foreman fire you?"

Replied the second, "Well, you know how a foreman is always standing around and watching others do the work. My foreman got jealous. People started thinking I was the foreman."

---------------------------------------------

A man walks into a pub and sits down next to a man with a dog at his feet. "Does your dog bite?"

"No."

A few minutes later the dog takes a huge chunk out of his leg.

"I thought you said your dog didn't bite!" the man says indignantly.

"That's not my dog."

---------------------------------------------


My brother Scott brought over a photo album of his camping trip. One picture showed a brown bear helping itself to his food. "What kind of bear is that?" I asked.

"It's called a Kodiak," Scott replied.

"Oh, yeah?" my husband Keith shot back. "And I suppose those white ones in the Arctic are called Polaroids."

---------------------------------------------


A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It's after midnight.
While en route home, he asks the cabby if he would be a witness.

The man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act.
For $100, the cabby agrees.

Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabby tip toe into the bedroom. The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back and there is his wife in bed with another man!

The husband puts a gun to the naked man's head.

The wife shouts, 'Don't do it! I lied when I told you I inherited money.
HE paid for the Porsche I gave you.
HE paid for our new cabin cruiser.
HE paid for your Swan's season ticket.
HE paid for our house at the lake.
HE paid for your African tour and even the 4 x 4.
HE paid for our country club membership, and he even pays my Credit Card bill!'

Shaking his head from side-to-side, the husband lowers the gun. He looks over at the cabby and says, 'What would you do?

The cabby replies, 'I'd cover him with that blanket before he catches a cold.’

---------------------------------------------

"The NYPD is apparently teaching its officers how to be more polite. It's true last time I got frisked, the cop was like, 'Have you lost weight?'" Jimmy Fallon

----------------------------------------------

Teeing off on the 12th hole at a golf resort, we stopped to buy cold drinks from the young woman driving the beverage cart. As my buddy reached for his wallet, he said to her, "You're in great shape. You must work out a lot."

Flattered, she gave him a big smile and gushed, "Oh, thank you so much!"

The next day a different young woman was driving the cart. "Watch this," I whispered. I walked up to her and said, "Wow, you must work out a lot."

"Yeah," she replied flatly. "You should try it."

---------------------------------------------

Q: What are the small rivers that run into the Nile?

A: The juve-niles!


Q: Why is it easy for chicks to talk?

A: Because talk is cheep!


Q: Why was the blonde staring so hard at the orange juice carton?

A: Because it said "concentrate"!


Q: What does a houseboat become when it grows up?

A: A township.


Q: What do you call a cow spying on another cow?

A: A steak out.


Q: What does a cow say when she has a cold?

A: Aaaahhh...AAAAhhh....AAAAHHHHMMMMMOOOOO!

Introduction
I'm a nutter - had a head injury way back in 1981 and a few years later, lost my mind, was labelled schizophrenic, and then, regaining most of my senses, I set myself up on the internet, hoping to regain some of the reality and integrity/credibility I'd lost.  I love being creative, and like any other person, I'd like to contribute something towards the future of the planet, as well.  

I'm trying to find ways for the generations to be able to sustain themselves working from home, using their world wide web.  The catch 22 situation of having to have money to make money and having to have experience to get one's first job really is hard to swallow when entering one's independence, so I'd really like to show that there is a way to go about these things.  

I am not a parent, but do appreciate how hard it is to raise a family and keep a family together, and hope that the institution of marriage and family will survive throughout the Ages.

Well, as most of my creativity is on the net, just have a Google search of RAINE CAROSIN...  At the moment, I'm the only one!  Ain't that something?
